makeup for bloggers: raphael lobo.

My makeup session with blogger Raphael Lobo was so much fun!

One of the most exciting experiences about my makeup career is seeing the fruits of my labor being rewarded. People are starting to notice me, reach out for collaboration, and referring me to their friends. 

Blogger, Raphael Lobo reached out to me for a shoot with Catie Belle Photo

Raphael is SUCH a sweetheart! I had so much fun just talking to her about Brazil, her sweet little girl, food, my wife, and beauty of course! It was such easy conversation the entire time. 

She really let me take the reigns to create her look. I had so much fun choosing the colors and venturing away from the expected neutral browns and using strip lashes for a bit more drama.

1. How adorable is Raphael's daughter?!

2. I just love a photographer who will do anything to get THE photo, like getting into the pool. 

3. Raphael is just SO gorgeous!!
