It's been a while since I shared anything from my MasterBeautyPhotography.com blog and I started getting more DMs asking me about my camera, lenses and lighting that I use lately. So I wanted to share this page, where I listed all my production and post-production instruments: http://masterbeautyphotography.com/my-tools/ ⁠⠀ (clickable link in Bio ).⁠⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀ There's also a blog where I used to write about beauty photography, macro photography, working with MUAs and beauty retouching, when I had more time for that on the website. Check it out, everything I wrote a couple of years ago is as relevant today as it was then, and I hope it will be helpful if you are interested in beauty as a photographer, retoucher or even a MUA: http://masterbeautyphotography.com/blog⁠⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀ Model: @bekah_deering of @theindustryla ⁠⠀ Makeup by @xxfidelxx ⁠⠀ Photography: @juliakuzmenko ⁠⠀ Retouching: @avenueretouching ⁠⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀ #losangelesbeauty #studiobeauty #beautyphotographer #beautyretouch #juliakuzmenko #retouchingartist #studiolighting #studiophotography #commercialbeauty ⁠⠀ #makeupaddict #makeupart #eyemakeup #makeuplover #makeupjunkie #cosmetics #makeupaddict #makeupart #eyemakeup #makeuplover #makeupjunkie #cosmetics #skinisin #dewyskin #skinglow #glossy #glossyskin #skinretouching #skinretouch

💧 H2О 💧 I had no idea water is so beautiful up close 😍 I grew up in Moscow where air humidity is around 85% most of the time and the idea of hydrating your body was never reinforced. I then lived in Australia and had to learn what a good relationship with water should be. I’ve been trying to drink at least 2 liters or over 60 Oz of water a day since, and I always attempt to make everyone I care about drink more water every day too ☺️ Here are a few water facts of life⁠ for you according to US EPA: 💦 There is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank.⁠⠀ 💦 Water regulates the Earth’s temperature. It also regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes wastes.⁠⠀ 75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water.⁠⠀ 💦 A person can live about a month without food, but only about a week without water.⁠⠀ 💦 Water is part of a deeply interconnected system. What we pour on the ground ends up in our water, and what we spew into the sky ends up in our water. Photography and spilling @juliakuzmenko 💧not a pixel of retouching 💁‍♀️

It's been "shaky" in Southern California lately... 😬 Stay safe, my California friends!⁠ And look up some safety tips, especially if you Ike me moved here from a place where earthquakes don’t happen. ⁠⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ Here are some that I think are necessary to know if you're caught at home:⁠⠀ ✅ Drop where you are, onto your hands and knees. Sudden and intense back and forth motions of several feet per second will cause the floor to jerk sideways out from under you, and every unsecured object around you could topple, fall, or become airborne, potentially causing serious injury (source: earthquakecountry.org )⁠⠀ ✅ Take cover under a sturdy table or desk and stay put until the shaking stops⁠⠀ ✅ Cover your head and neck with one arm and hand⁠⠀ ✅ Call your dog and hold him/her by the collar, so that he/she doesn't take off if a loud sound scares him/her⁠⠀ ✅ If it happens at night, don't get out of your bed - protect your head with a pillow⁠⠀ ✅Check out earthquakecountry.org/dropcoverholdon/ - there are some videos where the LA County firefighters explain how to stay safe.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⛔️ Don't run around, don't run outside. Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave.⁠⠀ ⛔️ Stay away from glass, windows, glass doors.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ And if you live in Southern California:⁠⠀ 👍 Get into the habit of wearing slippers when you are at home. Leave them by your bed when you go to sleep. One of the common injuries during earthquakes is feet cut on glass.⁠⠀ 👍 Make sure you have extra bottled water in your home at all times, as well as in your car and everywhere else you spend time at (your office, your studio ). ⁠⠀ 👍 Buy an earthquake backpack for each person in your household. I got one for two for about $130 on Amazon in the beginning of this year when the NPR podcast The Big One came out. ⁠⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ Let's just hope that we never need to use them! ⁠⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ Model @itsritchierich of @omodelsagency ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Makeup @lilly_keys ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Makeup assistant @kashalassien ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Photo & post @juliakuzmenko#freckles #sunkissed

If it were easy, would you rather learn both photography and makeup, or focus on improving your current skills and work with more talented professionals who spent just as much time or more perfecting theirs?

Not all test shoots go as planned because it’s always a bit of a gamble working with people you never worked before. But when you realize that you are agreeing with your new colleagues on so many things and feeling inspired throughout the day, that’s a successful test shoot in my book ☺️ Thank you @lilly_keys for traveling to the other side of the hills on a Saturday and sharing your talent with us, thank you for gorgeous skin and sweetness @itsritchierich @omodelsagency , thank you for all your help @kashalassien ❤️ Model @itsritchierich of @omodelsagency Makeup @lilly_keys Makeup assistant @kashalassien Photo & post @juliakuzmenko #losangelesbeauty #studiobeauty #beautyphotographer #beautyretouch #juliakuzmenko #retouchingartist #studiolighting #studiophotography #commercialbeauty #tbt #skinisin #glow #dewyskin #skinglow #glossy #glossyskin #skinretouching #skinretouch #skincare #skincareproducts #retouching #macrobeauty #closeup #extremecloseup
