Photos of Emilie F. Yaakaar by Emilie F. Yaakaar. Pictures were taken at home in January 2021.
All Rights Reserved © 2021.
aesthetic: soft dewy + colourful print + neutral-warm Mediterranean tones.
style: Simple indoors selfie-portrait (head & shoulders), with only colour-based and light-based edits.
outfit: basic white turtleneck, circular earrings and Rama Diaw print necklace.
makeup: lipstick, lip-gloss, lip liner, highlighter (for cheeks and eyelids), brow cream, mascara, foundation (liquid + powder) and concealer (for lower-eyelids & chin) [15-20 mins application time].
hair: post-wash moisturised and naturally sleeked back into a low bun, with a small set of ringlet curls on each side of the head.
errors: 1) colour mismatch between face and hands due to natural skin unevenness, foundation and applied facial skincare; 2) one picture was originally taken in a different mode than the rest and is slightly off (can you spot it?); 3) colour focus partially failed in one of the pics (which?).
