Hi BBs! I'm so excited to share with you the Windmill music video!!! I worked on both styling and makeup for the video, and the entire production was gorgeous. The artist is Connie Lim, an incredibly gifted songwriter and vocalist - her voice and lyrics are both deliciously powerful. The dancer in the video is Kylie Lewallen, a stunning artist both in her dancing ability and her physical presence. I'm so so lucky to call these two beauties my best friends - we grew up together and truly they're my sisters in every sense of the word - so I'm filled with pride to share this accomplishment with all of you!
For Connie's look, we wanted to exude strength and power, so for styling we had her layer pleather leggings with a simple white wifebeater tank and toss a leather jacket over it. The look is effortless but strong and sexy nonetheless. As for her makeup, we wanted to add more drama to her natural beauty and do a smokey eye and add a touch of intensity. And as you can see in the video, the results were her looking both gorgeous and confident!
We wanted Kylie's look to be more natural, so no heavy eyeshadow or extreme contouring - we stayed more with neutral tones and played up her natural glow. We didn't need to do anything extreme because her natural features are already beyond lovely, so we just played those up! Her styling was simple because we needed her to be in dance attire the way she would be if she were rehearsing on her own. For a pop of color, we went with the bright sports bra underneath her black top. What a beauty!
So there you have it, what do you guys think!? I hope you love the video and song as much as I do, it was an honor to be able to work with and help my best friends, and especially to see Connie's artistry continue to succeed!
Lots of love
