August 2010

August was a fun month make-up wise and socially!
I did a few shoots... and also a wedding for my friends mother who was re-marrying.

Here are a couple of images from the wedding:

It was really nice to do a wedding for a friends family, and i nice way to start off the beginning of working as a qualified professional!

So I have been really useless at updating this recently.

I'm not very good at keeping up to date with everything!
So I am now going to post some images of work I have been doing since the summer just gone up until now...the Beginning of 2011!

Think my new years resolution should be to stay up to date!!!!

Georgian V's 80's shoot

This was a shoot I did recently with stylist Vicky Smith. This was one of her own university projects which she asked me to do hair and make-up on.
Foe this project there were two models so I came up with designs for it and then found another student to produce the second models look following my ideas.
The make-up on this shoot was done by a fellow student in the year below me for work experience following the idea's Vicky and I discussed.
I set and dressed the wig out using inspiration from the film Marie Antoinette, starring Kirsten Dunst.

Work experience on 'OVER THE RAINBOW' advert

I was really lucky to get given the opportunity to do paid work on the advert for the new Andre Lloyd Webber program, finding Dorothy.
This was in london, in the black island studios. Four students from my course got to do this paid work experience, and we all got our own Dorothy we were in charge of for the two days shooting.
My Dorothy was the small, red haired girl in the advert and is the forth Dorothy to be shown.
This was an amazing opportunity and was fantastic to watch the lion being made up using foam prosthetics by Graham Norton's personal make-up artist.
The days were long, we did 6am-around 8.30/9pm, but this is not as long as in film.
Last year I also got the opportunity to do work experience on The Prince of Persia, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and they are incredibly long days, but very fun and exciting. Unfortunately because of copy right and privacy policies we were not allowed to take any pictures ao i did not do a section on this.

EMMA BELL inspired shoot for FMP

These photos were taken in a small shoot I did for a friend on the Fashion, Media and Promotion course at Northbrook College. The shoot was based around Emma Bell, so the make-up was bright ad the colours were clashing. She decided on a lady gaga hair bow in the hair. The hair on the model is actually all synthetic, her own hair was put into small bunches under the synthetic hair pieces. Unfortunately my friend in fashion does not have her own blog yet, so I cannot link this to her, but Since this shoot I have done Three more, so will soon be putting up more fashion images.

Flower Fairy Shoot

This was my second year final project. We had to create a look based on flower fairies. We could take it in any direction we wanted once we had chosen a fairy or poem by the author. I chose to look at summer as the shoot was in June. The fairy I picked was the Rose fairy. I wanted to make this more editorial than theatrical. I decided not to use wings as most shop bought ones would not look as delicate as the dress.
I made the head garland from flowers I bought online. The dress was made by my friend who did costume design, but as she had her own projects I finished it by sewing fabric flowers over the train of the dress.

The hair is the models own as well as three switches (large ponytails or hair) and a set of extensions I bought. The was all hot sticked before the shoot to save time. Her hair was hot sticked on the morning of the shoot before i did the make-up.
The make-up was quite natural in colours. Previous to this we had a specialist make-up lesson with Julia Francis on no make-up make-up through to glamour. I used some of the techniques she taught me to create natural looking eyelashes and light smokey eyes.
