Get Samantha’s look from the Urban Tribe Photo Shoot!
I styled Samantha in a daring strapless cobalt dress from Forever 21. Don’t be afraid of a strapless dress! The longer the dress the leaner you look, you could also throw a jacket over it. Cobalt is one of the hottest colors of the seasons , it works well with all complexions are there are so many ways to wear it! I added the coral heels from Torrid for just the right amount of pop with the cobalt. To give the dress shape I took a couple of skinny belts from ASOS, and placed them a little above her natural waistline. Add lots of bangles and you’re ready for the summer nights on the town!
The wonderful makeup artist Israel Platero wanted Samantha to be simply seductive. He started with the radiance primer and creme smooth foundation from Laura Mercier, for even radiant complexion. For her eyes he used NYX loose pearl shadow in Nude Pearl on the lid and True Purple in the crease. Finishing the eye the Laura Mercier black cake liner. Mata Hari blush from Nars and Deco Rouge lipstick from Laura Mercier complete the bright yet sultry look. He also applied the Laura Mericer body bronzing makeup to give Samantha’s skin the healthy summer glow. Israel’s secret to achieving this look is to always apply a good shadow base and build the color. It is easier to add more if needed then to have to start over again because you have a heady hand with color.
Our accomplished hairstylist Nadia Balgobin, used the Moroccan Oil treatment oil to prep Samantha’s hair to promote smoothness and a anti frizz finish. She then used the Babyliss curling wand curling section by section to give Samantha a bouncy curl. Finished with Bumble and Bumble shine spray! Voila!
This summer be bright, be daring, be curvy! Join the Tribe! INDULGE!
