Step 1: Concept building
I used a mood board and inspirational ideas as a general guide to come up with a photography composition, color palette, and a general sketch.

Step 2: Modeling
Using 3D software to model out the products and scene elements, in this case, it is the lipstick and cap and then using sculpting techniques to create the droplets

Step 3: General Texturing and lighting
Based on the property of the product’s surface, each material has its unique way to react to the lights, proper texture is critical for photorealistic rendering images

Step 4: Styling and Staging
Create background elements that serving the concept and feeling I want to achieve and prop the scene and make the products look cool and beautiful, in this case, it was a plain red wall with some grain texture.

Step 5: Refine texture and lighting
Do some minor adjustments to make sure the product texture works perfectly when the lighting and composition has been finalized

Step 6: Rendering and retouching
Set up resolution and other images details for rendering.  The render image will be exported from 3D software and imported to Photoshop to finish the final photo editing and retouching.
