Bochan's hair and makeup by me! I love all of the historical and cultural references in this video which plays like a mini movie. Behind the scenes secrets... I still can't believe they transformed Bo's Oakland backyard into a smokey jungle. Bochan's hair in the rally scene, filmed in a multi-level parking lot, was inspired by the look she sported at her own wedding. I think it would make a great style for a vintage wedding, don't you? The studded jacket was made by her talented sister Pina. Friends and family made stunning cameos throughout the video, including the tiny curly-headed cutie running through the jungle!
Bo was smart and had lash extensions put on for the three day shoot. For the "apsara" look, I applied gold and bronze eyeshadows with a damp brush to create a foil texture on the lid. Applying the shadow wet also helped it to stay on all day in the hot sun. Next, a strong black liner was applied with a thick wing on the end.
The jungle scene was a smokey purple eye with soft curled hair and the rally scene included an intense, black liquid eyeliner. I set her hair with heat rollers for the rally style since it was expected to rain that day. Setting hair before working it into an updo really tames fly-aways and shapes the hair into behaving, especially if it's humid outside.
Quick tip: Unfortunately, Bo had a little (actually quite BIG!) blemish on her cheek that just wouldn't go away. A couple of layers of Dermablend Cover Cream and a loose setting powder did the trick. Can't see any texture or darkness in the video, can you? Dermablend is also great for covering tattoos you're trying to hide from grandma during your wedding.
Bo worked really, really hard on this project and it shows. Head on over to Vevo and show Bo some love! Stay tuned for her full album, coming soon!
