Trina Merry, The Audrey of Bodypaint

I am a huge fan of creating Up do's that capture an era. I recently did an Audrey Hepburn "inspired" up do on the Body Painter - Trina Merry. I didn't want to exactly replicate Audrey so I pulled out an Adele Vogue cover that I LOVED the makeup on and used that as my inspiration for Trina's color palette. Juan Moreno of JAM Photos helped capture the moment. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do!

Trina has very long curly hair so for her haircut I create a round cut with long layers. I keep the layers pretty uniform to help me in my curl sections. When you have curly hair- your ends need friends . This is Trina's natural hair color. Its beautiful, one day we will color it, just not yet. To create this style I set her hair with a large barrel curling iron and set it to cool while I did her makeup. I have an obsession with Kenra Taffy, smells divine and helps me control her hair while shaping into her up do

I use Temptu Silicone Based Airbrush makeup for her foundation, blush and contour. Her eyebrows are airbrushed with the Temptu Airbrow kit. Her eyeshadow is from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette that is currently available at Urban Decay or Sephora. I have both of the Naked palettes and love them dearly. A MUST have of eyeshadow for anyone. Her eyelashes are strip lashes that look like caterpillars.
