Patricia Gaines Dee NappturalityChallenge 4: Ebony

You really let your natural beauty shine through on this Challenge. You did not over do the makeup, which is tempting when you are advertising a brand of makeup. Your skin looks healthy and plump, with a beautiful satin finish and I loved this challenge. Your choice of clothes complemented the natural essence of the product and showed a relaxed, confident and healthy overall picture. Loved it.

Challenge 4: Natasha

Your challenge showed me a fresh face, clean simple and natural. I liked the simplicity of it. I would have liked to see more of a smile, to bring out your eyes more. Your hair was finely styled in these photos and added to the sleekness of the overall image. I would like to see more “pow” in your photos, more personality showing through. I know you’ve got it in you.

Kcurly on Week 4

I picked Timolin as my favorite for this challenge. Nina and Denitrika came in close!

Natasha

Makeup

The simply colored backgrounds and your choice of clothing color (black) really help bring focus to your beautiful skin tone and make up application. Let me say that you have the smoky and sultry stare down pat! But I would really love to see some jubilant expressions as well to fully get the full range of the makeups effects. I also liked your choice in hairstyle as it gave off both a flirty and sophisticated feel.

Jewelry

I enjoyed how you paired the earrings with different accessories, giving you a different look each time. I think the fro was a good choice in hairstyle because it still allows a lot of focus on the earrings while complimenting them as well. Great job!

Denitrika

You have a smile that is verging on adorable! The makeup looked flawless on you. Your shoot had a carefree, young, and light feeling. I do think that a few of the shots had lighting that was a bit too bright and did not fully reveal the coloring. Overall, though, loved it!!

Ebony

Makeup

Your pictures had a fresh faced feel for a wonderful everyday look. I liked the choice of clothing and the scarf. Even though I do enjoy the everyday look, I do feel that you’ve could’ve shaken things up a bit more with a bit more color in some shots or perhaps a few action shots.

Jewelry

Again, very fresh feeling to these photos. I liked the outside lighting and your hair framing the earrings.

Raven

I am digging the dramatic and bold feel to your photos! The poses ranged from sexy to thoughtful, just loved it. I also loved how your makeup changed based on your poses and the feel of each photo.

Jewelry

I didn’t feel like I got the full effect of the earrings you were showing off. I still felt like your photos were great shots of you but I don’t feel the focus was on the jewelry.

Timolin

Make up

Your photos were absolutely stunning. Your makeup and hair were just great. There were some fantastic full face shots in there as well. Your look was class, simple, and effortless! Loved it!

Jewelry

Same here! I especially loved the different hairstyles you paired with the earrings. The first photo of you in black and white and the earrings in color particularly stood out.

Munya

Makeup

These shots were very soft and feminine. I liked your gentle expression but would have liked to see more variety in both your face and poses.

Jewelry

Again, very soft and feminine shots. However, I think you would have benefited from closer shots to showcase the jewelry more.

Nina

Makeup

These shots were all gorgeous! Your updo really helps to accentuate your facial features and the makeup. Your poses have the feel of a woman getting ready to go out on the town for a night of fun! I loved it all.

Jewelry

Because the item you were showcasing has such a unique feel and color, I think it’s imperative that your clothing compliment that. And it did! Again, I love the updo here too. I also liked how you were having fun with the jewelry not just wearing it.

Laura

Makeup

I liked the shots but the photos were too bright (or maybe the lighting was too bright?) so I didn’t feel like I got an accurate effect of the makeup. I feel like you could’ve done more here to attract attention as far as your posing goes. I loved the shot where you were looking directly into the camera with a beautiful smile.

 

 

week 4 feedback

week 4 feedback

all the ladies again have done a great job with the brief

Ebony: i love your close up shoots it really showed the make up to it’s best, you foundation base was clean and your skin looks clear and healthy! just the type of skin you see in many campaigns. for you jewelery pics i would have like to have seen you in something simple like a vest or t-shirt as the scarf and the coat were a little to much and perhaps you hair pulled back to showcase the earrings, however as always the quality of your pictures are impeccable!

Rachel Ritfeld feedback on challenge 4

Ebony: It’s time to take it up a level! Your pictures are nice, but only just nice this week. Although you looked beautiful, it didn’t really pop. I much preferred your jewelry pictures. However in your make up ad shots, they are all very natural which is nice for every day life but in a shoot, don’t be afraid to be a bit more bold with your eye shadows. The client would want their product to be showcased.

Natasha: When shooting a make up ad, choose a mixture of natural and more bold make up varieties. I found your shoot uninspiring. You have great features and are very beautiful but need to keep practicing. I preferred your jewelry shots. Love the color on you and the earrings really stands out which is really good.

Sasha Natural beautyEbony Clark: I love just how natural and flawless the makeup looked on you. It didn’t even seem as if you had anything on. I am loving the eye shadow detail on picture 2!! It’s great! Beautiful job!

Natasha Beals: I liked how the makeup meshed well with your skin, the pictures would have been even more awesome with a big smile like in your last series of photos 🙂

Denitrika: Girl! You are working that eye shadow!! I can tell that the bronzer and shades of the makeup will work for just about any skintone by looking at your pics.
