Makeup tutorial tonight!

Makeup tutorial tonight!

Join me for a Facebook Live makeup video tonight at 6 p.m. EST. I’ll be doing my own makeup and talking you through the process along with issues that you all have brought up and that I’ve seen in the studio. In particular, I’ll be covering skin care, makeup 101, contouring, and eye makeup. I’ll be focusing on a look that’s more on the natural side. (For dramatic looks, I have several archived facebook makeup tutorials that focus on intense smokey eyes, dramatic lips, etc.)

You can join in at my personal facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethAnneTaylor1

Update: You can view tonight’s makeup video at https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethAnneTaylor1/videos/10158079682177360/

Allison Relaxes at Takoma Park Studio

Allison Relaxes at Takoma Park Studio

Allison loves relaxing with a total makeover and an all-day photography session. She visited my new Takoma Park studio this summer, and we had a blast shooting in the yard, on the deck, and in the “girl cave.”

As a Navy veteran, Allison wanted some photos in tribute to her service as shown by her service dress blue jumper. After her patriotic photos, we went for a casual purple and blue dress that hit at the mid-thigh topped with a blue sweater. Then we did a few ballerina photos on the back deck followed by a glamorous look in a blue velvet dress on the deck and in our “girl cave.”

My studio is located in Takoma Park, Maryland adjacent to Washington, DC. Priding itself as LGBT-friendly, Takoma Park boasts several delicious restaurants including Republic, where I’ve hosted dinners for the DC Trans Ladies Meetup. Republic is also a great venue for grabbing drinks or dinner as part of one of my outing packages.

Allison Relaxes with Outdoor Photography

Allison Relaxes with Outdoor Photography

Allison loves outdoor photography. For her eye makeup, we used MAC‘s on-trend palette called “Art Library: Flame-Boyant” and the lipstick color “Brick-o-La.” For photography, I used photo strobes and colored gels to create the purple backdrop of bamboo and the richly-hued blue sky.
