SUIT UP-STAND UP

Styled By Habitual She

Makeup by me.

"A swig of feminine masculinity."

With the use of an actual man's suit, I styled this shoot around the structures provided by the clothing itself. This look was layered with a turtleneck sweater dress, ripped black jeans, black military heeled boots then draped on top is a charcoal jacket from a men's suit. I styled the hair to remain taught inside the turtleneck; only pulling strands of hair forward to frame the models face. The makeup was applied very lightly using beige tones on the eyes and lips, and the brows were kept full. I wanted these images to show the empowerment of a woman by the woman, herself; not hiding behind gobs of makeup. This look celebrates natural beauty from the inside out. The model still looks feminine and soft and yet strong and tailored like she took a swig of feminine masculinity.

HAIR:

  • Innersense Organic Beauty Harmonic Healing Oil. Applied to the ends of hair to create a healthy shine to the hair follicles. This product works wonders in creating that tousled, unkempt style by applying one drop in your palms, rubbing together and massaging on the hair ends.
