So beauties, let's get right into!

First of all, not sure if you knew this by now, but one of the services Creative Contour By Carla offers is Personal Branding Makeup! If you aren't sure what this is, you are in luck, because I am happy to explain it for you!

For those of you who are business professionals, entrepreneurs, or small business owners, you may have heard of a phrase called 'Personal Branding.' What this phrase means is that your company or business has a branded image or theme. In business, you need to follow that branded image or theme, because it represents you to your potential customers or clientele. Your branding also includes colors and fonts on your website, and of course, photos of you! If you are the face of your company, your customers need to see you, whether it is a posed photo like above, or there is a professional photo of you in action in your business.

Personal Branding mainly pertains to photos, but can includes videos as well. Think of a Personal Branding Video like a commercial. You spend the entire video talking about your company, who you serve, and the menu of services or products that you offer. It's pretty cool when you think about it! Videos usually take a longer time to film and create than photos, but the makeup will work out the same way.

Diane certainly is toned!

So for her Branding Photoshoot session, Diane wanted to incorporate and show off her workouts in action. First we showed that aspect. The makeup was a natural style of makeup that almost appeared to be a 'no-makeup' makeup style because most folks don't wear makeup while working out. So I wanted to make sure to allow Diane to look most like herself for these photos.

Then as you saw in the photos earlier, we amped up her makeup look! Diane enjoys a little glamour and I was ready to bring it to her. I applied a demi wispy style of false eyelashes, a smoked out eye look, and finished with a beautiful berry lipstick. It was the perfect touch of glamour to finish her branding photos!

Carla did my makeup for my day-long photo shoot. Thanks to her skills she progressed me through a wide range of looks, from natural to glam. Best of all, she listened and made adjustments to make sure that I always felt like me!
