Night Duty

As I checked my Multiply last night, I got a surprise from Dennis's account and saw that our collab shoot last month is now up

Part 1 of a series:

I've been introduced to smoky eyes for men by Dennis and it's a style that I've grown to love, at least in photoshoots with dark and conceptual themes. Whereas with ladies I use blacks and grays and silvers with shimmer and satin and velvet finishes, I use matted shades for the male counterpart. I use a matte eyeshadow powder (specifically Kryolan eyeshadow in highlight, which also serves as a highlighting powder for contouring) for browbone highlight and do a lot of blending so there's gradual fading of color. On this one, though, I added a bit of gunmetal silver for dimension and some blue for intensity in case Darrel would be doing some desaturation during post-processing.

Again, I gotta hand it to Dennis for doing the tattoo body art drawn freehandedly meaning no stenciling or penciling in with skintone makeup pencil... it was directly drawn on the skin.
