Makeup by Marin

This weekend Tessa had her senior pictures taken.  Her friend Marin came over to do her makeup for her before the photo shoot.(pictures of that to come next)

Tessa wanted something different than the "normal" boring senior pictures.  Our amazing photographer friend Meg was taking them and they decided to do a "vintage barbie" look.    We raided the costume shop at Westview for all their 50's era clothing and found a few things that would work and then I spent Friday driving around to vintage stores in Portland to see if I could find something.

I guess today clothes from the 70's and 80's are considered vintage.  I actually found things that I use to own!!  Guess that means I'm old or vintage!!  I ended up finding an amazing dress for Tessa at a really nice vintage store and she gave it to me for half price because there was a stain on that really didn't show!  The best part was that Tessa loved it too.

Marin did a great job on her makeup and gave her a nice smoky eye with pink lips and cheeks.  I of course had to take photos of the makeup session.
