A beautiful day and what do I get to do?… a three hour round trip on the the bus and skytrain for a pre-shoot meeting down in Surrey! It was worth it though, haha! The meeting went well and then I got to sit out on our 23rd floor balcony for dinner
Basically what happened was that I met with the designer/maker of the lingerie that we’re shooting for (Robyn at Satin Lillie Creations) and we went through some photos and magazine clips to see what kind of image she is thinking of for with each model (there’ 5). It’s one thing me as the Make-up Artist to think “oh I know what would look good” and another thing for us to be in agreement as to what the client was thinking and what I can advise! Robyn said she has no idea about make-up, but she still had some ideas on how dramatic she wants to go and what styles she does or doesn’t want for each of the models (sophisticated/young and innocent, etc).
It was a good meeting and I came away having seen photos of the models (five of them), the clothing that will be worn and an idea of what the designer is looking for. For the actual shoot I’ll have Clarissa Jorquera there to help. She’s nearing the end of her make-up course at Vancouver Film School and is extremely talented, so it will be lovely to have her with me for me day! (Yay for Clarissa!)
