A Makeup client needed photos of their entire line of makeup. After sending me home with some samples and getting glitter everywhere, I decided to get smart about things. Shooting makeup for the next week was out of the question on their budget, so I went to photoshop…

There were three characteristics that differentiated each kind from one another. The color, the texture, and the sheen. The color can be picked as an overlay. The texture would have to be photographed. The sheen is how shiny it is- that can also be added as an overlay if needed, but I left that out.

The idea was to use this inside a woocommerce shopping cart, but it just stayed in photoshop.

I downloaded makeup packaging, took photos of lots of green makeup, colored them black and white, and used the blend modes in photoshop to put these mockups together.
