Engagement shoot

I did the make-up for an engagement shoot yesterday and the photographer, Anna Krasnova, has already processed a couple of images of the happy couple Jesse and CJ.

Jesse said she doesn’t really wear too much makeup so we didn’t go crazy, but I did use false lashes on the outer edges with pink and brown eyeshadow and dark brown liner. When we went outside I had to apply a bit more blush and lippy as the sun was out in force and she looked really pale in the photos. Jesse has a lovely complexion and is a lovely shade of pale anyway, but I did add a little bronzer just to help define her face in the bright sun shine.
I used my Ben Nye cream HD foundations and think they worked beautifully! MAC cream blush looked lovely on her cheeks and a mix of MAC and La Femme eyeshadows on her eyes :-)

To the happy couple!

Goth Shoot with Photographer Anna Krasnova

Although yesterday was a busy day it was a lot of fun!

The goth themed shoot went well, with Melanie Madill as model, Anna Krasnova as photographer and myself as make-up artist. There was supposed to be a second model, but she had to cancel a few days ago, not sure why. We had time for two looks, but then I had to leave due to prior engagements but I left them a few bits and pieces such as lipstick in case they needed to touch up during the last bit of the shoot.

The images were mostly headshot style as Anna was focusing on her lighting and composition. We all took bits and pieces for props, clothing and the like (including a blond wig that Anna brought with her and Mel was dying to get her hands on, haha!). We didn’t have a hairstylist and none of us are particularly skilled with hair so I gave it a go and we kept things simple and used a lot of hairspray to keep things where we wanted it, hahaha (poor Mel)! Anna sent me a couple of images this morning and it looks like they had a go with the wig after I left :-) I’m not gonna put up the images she sent as she says they’re by no means the best fromt he day, so you’ll just had to wait for the final products that she’ll send once she’s finished post-processing ;-)
