Happy New Year! We are just about to end the first month of the year and I have been hitting the ground running. With so many adventures planned already MakeUp Me is in for a fantastic year.
So far this year I have done makeup for photography shoots with some stunning bikini models, clients, portrait models too.
Bikini Model makeup is far different to other makeup and remembering that they are to be photographed as well, creates its own challenges. I love the creativity and challenges this style of makeup brings. The biggest challenge is creating beautiful makeup that is stunning through the camera lens while looking more natural and not over done, the less is more look whilst applying more makeup then you would to a client. I do love the makeup looks where they are a bit more dramatic. I can't wait to do the red lipstick with a more strong eye on a stunning model.
Here are some of the images with the makeup I did for this shot event. With many photographers coming along the atmosphere was amazing. There is also a video that goes along with the event. you will see me blowing up the beach ball and applying makeup.
A couple weeks later I got to work with more models and photographers in January with Models: Don, Jaslyn, Kimberly and Cheyenne. They are all different personalities, skin tones and looks. I love the verity models bring and the individual challenges, this brings to makeup. Making sure the foundation matches perfectly as the photograph will pick it up instantly, making sure the eye shadow is well blended and that the eyes pop as well.
This next shoot took place at Newcastle Baths. Although we are right in the middle of summer we seem to have had a cold snap on shoot day. The models where as professional as always and took getting in the water the way any professional should. Wind caused some hair issues with getting in the way of makeup application but as always MakeUp Me faces challenges head on and delivers every time. Don arrived with makeup on miss understanding the conversation I had with all the models, just another challenge I took on the chin and got on with it. With limited time as we are racing against the sunset I removed the foundation and left the eye and lipstick creating a more dewy natural look to the skin, suited to photography. Here are the images taken by myself and other photographers. (so many haven't posted yet)
Just this week I got to work on another shoot this time summer wear at the lake. The day again provided some challenges with 40+ degree Celsius day. I was happy to say my makeup didn't melt given I put it into a lunch box with ice bricks to prevent foundation, concealer, lipstick all from melting and separating. I also got to practice my photography skills again if you have yet to notice I have picked up a camera and wanting to learn how to take amazing images of my clients after my work is done didn't think I would love it so much that I want to take it further then just my clients.
Here is some of the images myself and Steve Tyne have taken. Many others are yet to process their images. Hopefully I can update this post soon and add their images too.
Outside of working with all these amazing models and photographers I have also worked with clients. Pokolbin adventures for weddings have been high on my list also. Before Christmas lots of wedding makeup too. It is the best feeling to help a bride feel relaxed and beautiful on her day!
With many adventures yet to come I will leave this here and do a new blog letting you all know where I will be and when so you can book me in too.
MakeUp Me Love to you all
