TKB's Athena etc and the difference a good camera makes

Do not be fooled - these pics  have been taken by a dude who knows his stuff and with a camera that probably cost half my year's wages. I do not look this good irl. This is all smoke and mirrors, just like the pics of celebrities on the magazine covers. Since it was overcast, the light was not warm enough to make my skin look reddish or yellow. Perfect pale, just as I like it :)
biggify to see the foundi in action
Stuff used:
e.l.f. mineral eyeshadow  primer
Monistat gel all over the face
Lumene's Arctic Definition Mineral Eyebrow Pencil with Protecting Arctic Amethyst (makes me chuckle every time I read this) No 2 Gray Brown. Lovely color btw - looks just like my eyebrows, just better.
Lumene's Natural Code Eye Dramatizer Volume-Defining Mascara (product names are getting ridiculous, don't you think?).
still unsymmetrical :S

On the eyes: TKB's Athena all over lid, Simply Naturals' Sandlewood in the crease and a generous helping of Smashbox's highlighter color from their Viewfinder trio on the browbone and used to blend out Sandlewood.

No cheek colors, no contouring - just EDM's Olive Fair in semi-matte, applied thicker on some spots. Lips are done with e.l.f.'s mineral lipstick in Cool Coral, I do not like that one much.
I LOVE the way my face is the same tone as my neck!
Bangs need cutting... and I think I should either grow my hair longer so I could put it up or cut it shorter - current length does not suit me as well as I thought. Accentuates the already rather impressive jawline. Hair is still moist on some of the pics, looks darker then really is.
Must tehti profikaameraga pilte - tulemus erineb tavapärasest ikka märkimisväärselt. See viimane pilt siin on tehtud ülevalgustamise-tehnikaga, näitab nahka eriliselt veatu ning näojooni pehmematena, kui need tegelikult on. Mineraalpuuder oma valgusthajutavate osistega on siin tõesti abiks - puudrikiht mu näos ei ole kuigi paks ja lisaks on see ka veel semi-matte, st et mitte kõige katvam retsept.

Vale puha :D, tegemist on alatu kaamerapettusega. Photoshoppi pole kasutatud aga kuidagi on võimalik panna kaamera nii ilusaid pilte tegema...

Thank you, Britta :)

Imeilusad pildid ja su silmad on super! Vähemalt 20a pärast hea vaadata, kui kaunis sa nooremalt olid, kaamera trikid või mitte :)

Pictures are beautiful, your bone structure is gorgeous.

Parem lepi sellega, et oled ilus! :D Endast on lihtsalt raskem korraliku nurga alt pilti teha! Pildi peal ju oled sina ( loodan, et saad mu mõttest aru )! :)

You look great !
I haven't play with my TKB pigments for ages, thanks for reminding me that they're gorgeous and don't deserve to be abandoned ;)
