Bella: Meilan Lipstick Series

Monday, July 2, 2012

I came across this quote on my wedding photographer's blog last year and it describes perfectly the essence of the Lipstick Series:
One of the most enduring and stylish metrics for measuring the severity of hard times is sales of red lipstick. First noted during the dark days of Wold War II, when the popularity of the glamorous but relatively inexpensive pick-me-up skyrocketed, it has proven to be a surprisingly accurate barometer ever since. But it goes beyond makeup. Time and time again, when the going gets tough, the tough get glowing. -- Harper’s Bazaar: Greatest Hits by Glenda Bailey







It really wasn't until the middle of last year that my interest in lipstick started to spark.  I used to think red lipstick was over-powering or "too much."  Boy, was I wrong.  From red to fuchsia pink, I am a fan.  But I have to admit it that wearing red lipstick takes some guts :)  Are you a fan of lipstick?  I hope to bring you more lipstick series in the future! 

Huge thanks to Meilan Mizell for rocking out this shoot!  And my girl Hannah Hayes of Heroine Chic for the styling :)

  3. Amazing. I'm going to be modeling some hairpieces for an upcoming shoot and while I am so not a bold lipstick wearer normally, this has made me reconsider my styling/makeup for the session. So glamorous and simple, yet stunning. I feel pretty just looking at this series.

  6. Very, very nice! I'm with Jose on this one - all the elements came together so that you could rock it out. I love the *simplicity* that draws all the attention exactly where you want it in each shot. Excellent use of the hat! Image #27 is probably my favorite- wow!
