Work Experience – Photoshoot

Today I did a photo shoot,for on a student in her final year at Bradford University. At the shoot there was  two model I had to do make-up and then a hair stylist that did the hair.  The look was a variation on the 1940’s hair and make-up with each model wearing  a red lip. On on model I did a purple smokey eye and on the other I did a gold and green smokey eye.  I really joyed working on this photo shoot and got the opportunity to work with some really nice people.

 

I am waiting for the final pictures to be emailed  to me, so i will post them once i get them.

Creative Hair Final Assessment – Siren

For my final task for postiche was design creative hair for a character that would be in a theater production. For my character  I decided to create a siren. After doing some in depth research i found that Sirens are not actually mermaids but are half birds half women. From this research I decided to create a hair piece  I a style of a birds nest. Within the birds nest I incorporated various feathers to represent a bird, rope to  represent  ropes that are on the boats of the sailors they  lure to their deaths,with twigs that represent what birds use to build nests. For my make up I wanted to contour the face and let the rest of the do the talking. I wanted use black on the eyes and lips as Sirens are deadly and evil creatures. Overall I am extremely happy with the way the final look has turned out, a huge thank you to my sister for being my model and to Camilla Felgate for being an amazing photographer. Below are my two final shots.

Work Experience – We Heart Leeds Fashion Show

Back in November , myself and a few of my class mates where asked to help out and do the make-up at a fashion show in Leeds. The fashion show was in aid of helping raise money for The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. The make-up we had to apply to models was a dark blue/navy smokey eye with a red lip. Over all the night was very fun, and having never worked on a fashion sow before, I found  that I really enjoyed it. The only problem we had on the night was the lighting, while doing the make, as the venue was in a bar, we only had a few spot lights to work with. However, we were able to work with the lighting and all of the make-up turned well. Below are some pictures from the night.

Theater Make-up

As part of our semester 1 learning we had learn and recreate large theater make-up . When  applying theater make-up it is important to keep in mind that the make-up is being used to define the face so that the actors expressions can be “read” easily by the audience as they are most likely to be siting at a distance from the stage, meaning that the make-up can look a bit over the top and comical up close. Also another key factor to keep in mind is that theater make-up is used to alter the persons character and to also reflect the part they are playing. Below are a few photos from my theater make-up final assessment. I will hold my hands up and fully admit that i’m not a huge fan of theater make-up and can honestly say that i struggled when it came to the make up. When I first attempted the make-up I was completely fine with doing the eyes and lips but struggled using creme products to contour and highlight and felt that my fist attempt wasn’t that good so i made the decision to re-do the make again (shown in the pictures below). Having re-done the theater make-up again I was much happier with the result although I think I could have done with going a little darker with the contouring.

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.

Matte Skin and Red Lips

As part of learning basic make -up we had to learn how apply and achieve a matte look to the skin.  In our lesson we were given a demo by our tutor Lisa and then were sent off in pairs to practice. To achieve matte looking skin you need to cleans and tone the skin to remove any traces on make up, dirt and excess oil  After cleansing and toning you need to apply moisturiser to the skin and allow it to soak in to the skin and then apply a matte primer to the skin to help soak up and excess oil as well as to keep the make-up in place. To achieve the matte look to the skin i used MAC Studio Tech foundation and applied two to three layers on to the skin. The key to achieving a matte skin to apply a couple layers of foundation rather than applying one thick layer which can look cakey. After the foundation you need to go in with concealer and conceal any blemishes, redness or dark circles that were not covered up by the foundation. Once everything is concealed both the concealer and foundation then have to be set to achieve the matte look. To set the skin you need to use a translucent powder with a powder puff  and roll the powder on to the skin. Below are pictures of the finished look on my model Katy.

To take the matte skin one step further you could add a bold red lip like i have as well as  adding black eye liner to achieve a very 50’s retro pin up look .

Products I have used to achieve this look:

Face

  • Illamasqua Matt Primer
  • MAC Studio Tech Foundation
  • Illamasqua Loose Powder
  • MAC Powder Blush – Cubic

Lips 

  • MAC Lip Pencil – Cherry
  • MAC Lipstick – Ruby Woo
