LOOK OF THE WEEK: MODELING AND MAKEUP - By Jennifer, from A Well Styled Life

Note from Pauline Durban, founder and president of Covered Perfectly - I loved Jennifer from the minute she got in my car. She was a blast. Funny, down to earth and a great sport at the shoot! Over to Jennifer... I guess I can now add model to my list of many talents! On October 3rd, I flew down to model in the Covered Perfectly fashion shoot. It was a blast, but wow…a lot of work! I have a new respect for models! Pauline Durban, the woman behind Covered Perfectly, met me at the airport…took me to see her office, meet her staff and see where all the magic happens. It’s impressive! In May 2012 she invested her life savings to design and create tops for women, that she couldn’t find for herself. meandjen “I wanted to design women’s tops that made me feel attractive, and confident that showed the best parts of me.” ~ Pauline Durban She wanted soft to the touch tops that were long enough to cover the right part of her arms and also long enough to cover her tummy. Who doesn’t want that? I know I do!

I was tempted to just stand there like a bump on a log but the photographer kept prompting me to move and sway my body. I felt like a deer in the headlights but gradually got more comfortable.

Makeup has to be much heavier for a professional photo shoot. In person, it looked sort of scary. I felt like it accentuated every line and wrinkle I had. I learned a thing or two from the makeup artist. I’ve been covering my under-eye circles all wrong…more on that in another post.

Here I am modeling the Mandy top in the new Olive color.

The length was perfect over my leggings…pardon the pun. All Covered Perfectly tops are a flattering length. Not knowing I’d be modeling a dress, I didn’t bring the right shoes with me. This would look MUCH better on me with open throat shoes. jendressduo This Simple Comfort Dress is the perfect chameleon that dresses up and down with ease…can’t wait to get my own! On the left, is the black and white Cascading Vest a great addition. You can sign up for the Covered perfectly newsletter here, to get a first look at all their new offerings.
