Chains O' Love (Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets...)

My first beauty shoot. Big ups to the crew...

makeup: Jamie

hair: Jen

model: Lola


So, I lit this with a softbox. I'm wondering what people use to light beauty shots (beauty dish?)... Also, what sort of lens? On several shots, I wanted just the lips in focus and everything else out of focus. And, I wanted to fill up the frame with just the lips, but the lens I was renting (28-70mm/2.8) didn't go in that close. Any tips greatly appreciated!!
