Midnight Media

more shots from the black lipstick sequence. i had real fun fiddling my black lipstick.. up to the point where my dad appeared into my room without any knocking . my dad gave me this "no comment and shocked" look, and he quickly shut the door. good thing he didnt talk about it over my dinner, or that'd just be pure awkwardness.
anyhow alot of you asked what's the brand + shade im using for the lipstick.. well for the shade, its on the title (aka Midnight Media) and it's by MAC . I also used a waterproof (you wouldn't want black smear all over the chin) black eyeliner pencil to line the edges of the lips beforehand. then I applied a bit of MAC's Gloss to make it look slightly glossy.

LOVE THESE PICTURES! Love the black lipstick (you pull it off SO well), and the emo message on your arm. At first, I read "I want to clic"... and I was like, HUH?! Silly me! :P

I've always been curious about black lipstick, and not just during Halloween, either. I really dig this look!

Though I've also been no stranger to getting weird looks during photo shoots. xD

Kookie B. said...

OMG! I SUPER LOOOVE THE PHOTOS! GAH! And i'm so jealous that you got hold of a black shade from Mac. Branches here in Manila just ran out of stocks. I had to settle for a semi-black and very light shade. bah.

The black lipstick is stunning on you! And I love these fabulous colorful photos. :) I might have to copy your look for Halloween! It's very spooky and goth, but in a really gorgeous way.

And that was funny about your dad. Lol.

Jo said...

Really edgy and high fashion style of shoot and editing. I love them! They look so professonally done that anyone could have mistaken it for an ad. You not only take great pictures and edit them well, you're also a great model. Like many, I'm also curious about how you edit these.

Oh and I recently received black lipstick from my frenz from Anna Sui. They're really jet black but they come off so easily due to the creamy texture. Maybe I'll line my lips with eyeliner to at least make sure the colour doesn't bleed outside the lip area.

woooow amazing photos

Islandia Lane said...

WOW - these pictures are AMAZING. Kudos for you times a thousand. Felt like I was looking into V magazine or maybe Interview. The first photo, I love the most!! You totally brought emo/goth the best possible way and made it pretty.

And for these questions, I don't really know... Do you like thrift shopping? And are your parents both asiatic types, or are you mixed?
