Portfolio Building – Special Occasion Make-up

Today I did a photo shoot for my portfolio. In my portfolio I wanted to include some special occasion work as it is an area of make-up that would like to go into. For my look I decided to do a fresh a natural make-up, as the make-up could be worn by a bride or a bridesmaid at a wedding. For the hair put it in rollers to give it volume and texture and then put it up into a ‘messy’ bun on the back of the  head, with the front sections being twisted and pinned back into the bun. Overall I am very happy with the final look. Below is the final picture from the shoot with the photographer Jenny Mills.

Portfolio Building – Contoured Make-up in Black and White

For one of my portfolio shoots this semester, I wanted to include a simple contoured and highlighted make-up. Contouring is one of my weaknesses when it comes to make-up so i wanted to challenge myself with the task of doing it for my portfolio. For the look I just contoured and highlighted the skin, with a strong brown and neutral eyes and lips. I wanted to the final pictures to be in black and white as I wanted the look to be more high fashion. I am happy with the way the make-up turned out on the day, and really enjoyed working with the amazing photographer Emily Bailey.

 

I haven’t got the final pictures from the day, but I will post them once I have them.

TV Make-up Adaptation

After completing an assessment for basic TV make-up, we then had to adapt the make up making it more suitable for evening television e.g. Strictly Come Dancing, X Factor, celebrity juice etc. For the adaptation we had the opportunity to make it more glamorous and be a bit more creative. Below are some pictures of my lovely friend Bex. Overall i am pleased with my adaptation of TV make-up, but feel that i could have do better. If i could do it again i would have probably done the eyes a bit more smokey and added false lashes also i think i would have used a brighter colour on the lips.

TV Make-up

As part of our semester 1 assessments we has to learn and recreate basic TV make-up. The make-up we had to recreate had to be suitable for day time TV e.g. news reader or TV presenter. The aim of TV Make-up  is to make the key features on the face, lips and eyes, stand out as these are the features that the eyes are drawn to. Also when doing TV make-up  it is important to warm the skin up by using as foundation that is a shade or two darker than the natural skin so that the skin does not look washed out on screen. Another key factor to consider when doing TV make-up is that as most televisions are now HD and will pick up any imperfections on the skin but also any make-up mistakes, because of this it is important to use a medium to full coverage foundation that can cover any imperfections, discolouration or blemishes on the skin but without looking like there is make-up piled onto the skin. Finally make sure that you powder as any oil on the skin show up on screen any will make the skin look shiny.  Below are some pictures of my final TV make-up assessment. Overall I am really pleased with final TV make-up and felt that my assessment went well.
