Photo Shoot for RISE

I got a phone call on Saturday from Jasmine, one of the models I worked on the the RISE fashion show. She had been asked to do a photo shoot for the RISE website but they didnt have a Make-up Artist so she called me. :-)

I had to be at work at 4pm, but I was to meet her to start her make-up (and hair) at 1pm so there was plenty of time. When I got there I had a second model too that Jasmine hadn’t know about! Luckily, I had enough time to do them both before I had to leave (I took my work uniform with me so that I could just go straight to work afterwards if need be). Everything was kept very clean and fresh with simple, youthful hairstyles. I came to the rescue with some pins when one of the models was too thin for one of the dresses, haha, and left them some bits and pieces such as lipstick in case they needed to touch up after I’d gone. I can’t image they needed to, but it’s better to be safe than sorry :-)

I would have prefered to be there for the whole shoot, but it was a last minute thing and needs must!

Looking forward to seeing the end results!

RISE Fashion Show

Yesterday was the RISE Fashion Show at the Roadhouse Community Centre!

It was a great evening and I met some lovely people, including a model named Jazmine and the Key Make-up Artist Jacqueline Parker who did a great job designing the two looks we were to re-create on our models and organising all the Hair Stylists and Make-up Artists on the evening. (Jacqueline also put together little goody bags for everyone as a thank you for helping out, which was a lovely touch :-) ) I also bumped into a Make-up Artist/Hair Stylist that I met at the Nygard show, Elena Ismail. Always nice to see a familiar face!

The looks were quite simple to recreate as we were provided with photos and a small step-by-step guide on creating them. The first one was a smokey eye with pale lip, the second a natural eye with a gorgeous dark berry lip. We were told to just bring along our brushes and brush cleaner as the make-up we were to use was being provided for us by a company called Sappho Cosmetics. I’d never heard of them until this event, but I did really like their eyeshadows and bronzer!

I don’t have any photos as yet, but there was a professional photographer and videographer there photographing and filming the whole show and there are a few photos up on RISES’s Facebook page, but not of all the models or the whole show. Hopefully they’ll have the video up soon and I can link through to that for you!

All in all a fun night for a good cause promoting thrift and recyling :-)
