Hearts And Valentines


I’m not really a fan of Valentine’s Day, but I’m a fan of hearts. So there is a part of me that kind of likes the holiday, I suppose.

This photo was sort of an impromptu shoot. I had thought about a couple concepts to try for this particular day, but most of them required some prop and prep. I was a bit on a time-constraint, so most of them had to be pushed aside for another day.

So I worked with what I had.

To make the heart, I cut out a heart from paper. Then, I used eye shadow to shade in around the heart. Using a red lip liner, I made a bit of an edge to give the heart some definition. The jacket was a piece I’ve had in my wardrobe for ages. With this photo, it made its official photo shoot debut!

I tend to keep my makeup fairly uniform for self-portraits, darkening or lighting depending on the concept. So I consider this to be a step beyond my normal makeup skills. It was a learning experience. I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out, so I just went for it hoping for the best. It seems a bit minor for a makeup look, but as someone who isn’t really a makeup expert, it was a big step.

I’m quite proud with how it turned out.

This look kind of makes me think of Jem and the Holograms. Truly outrageous!

New Year. New Shop. New Things.

The new year is upon us!
With the new year comes a perfect reason to try something new, change old ways, or start fresh.
I’ve decided to start this year with a new shop. I feel that it’s a bit more organised than my last shop.
More photos have been added.
Due to my overflowing wardrobe and in an effort to clear out some things, I’ve started adding some of my wardrobe pieces in the shop. These items were made for photo shoots. Some wardrobe purchased will come with a signed print.  I’m also working on adding accessories to my shop soon.

To kick off this new shop, I’m offering FREE Shipping to all orders made between now and 31 January 2018 11:59P PST. Just use the code: FREESHIP at checkout.

New shop here: http://www.leeloola.com/blah/shop/prints/

Holiday Cards Because I Don’t Know What To Send People

I finally did it. I stopped slacking and got my holiday cards. Victory is mine!

Behold! This year’s Holiday Card:

It features myself and my cat, who clearly didn’t want to leave my side during this shot. It actually ended up being my favourite out of all of them. So, how could I not use it for my holiday cards?! I do plan on announcing a giveaway soon, so stay tuned for that!

If you can’t wait until the giveaway, then you can check out some of the holiday prints and bundles in my shop: Lee Loo’s Shop
