Runwayz Magazine took to conducting a Q+A Interview with Karly on the struggles, peaks, and pinnacles of being a star singer and it was my role to make her look fabulous!

I prepped Karly for hair and makeup at my studio, and then we headed out to our shoot location in Newport Beach aboard the Galileo Capri Yacht Offered To Us By: The Luxierge

Here’s a behind-the-scenes, sneak peak of our amazing day on the water…

Karly’s Hair

For her first look, I sprayed Next Day Hair at her roots to add fullness. Then, lightly teased it on top. Next, I twisted front pieces of her hair and secured them with bobby pins. Then took the longer pieces and tied a couple of small knots with her hair.

Next, I detailed the pieces, on the side that were twisted, and loosened them up for a lived-in look. Karly loves to wear hats so I added a loose side braid in her hair to add texture and interest.

Karly’s Eyeshadow

I used the warm Henna (orange/brown), Trustfund (light copper), and a hint of Coco (red/brown) eyeshadow tones from the HudaBeauty pallete to make her eyes electric.
