Who is MUAYV?
When I first met Yesenia, there were three things I noticed about her. One: She wasn’t wearing a coat. It was like 40 degrees out and we were in the middle of a windy Chicago day and I just couldn’t believe that she was completely jacket-less. Two: She had pink hair. Like, cherry pink.. (Is that an actual color?) Thirdly, she was stunning. Absolutely, positively stunning. Over time, a friendship between a photographer and a makeup artist developed. We both loved musicals, punk culture, and pinup.
She, more formally known as MUAYV is a Chicago Based Makeup Artist. Actually, we’ve collaborated for a few shoots including a vampire bride, a steampunk goddess, a Day of The Dead Couple, and a snow queen!
This is where it began. Let’s take the time machine back on this taking back thursday to about two years ago. This is the perfect depiction of what someone’s first photo shoot should be like. You get to watch her go from completely nervous to extremely charismatic.
Taking By Thursday Times Two!
Oh, by the way! Have you guys met Xio, because if you haven’t… Things are about to get adorable times two! Xio, when you meet her is actually really, really quiet but in this way that once she starts talking you’re like “OH MY GOD!”
Put two down to earth girls in one space and what do you get?!
