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.

Portfolio Building – 1940’s Glamour

For portfolio building this semester, I waned to create a look  inspired by 1940’s Hollywood glamour. I wanted to create  glamours wave in the hair, with a bold red lip and a black flip on the eyes. This kind of look can be used on a special occasion/red carpet event, fashion and even in film and tv. I am very pleased with the way the make-up and hair turned out on the day as well as the final images. Below is the final picture form the shoot, thank you to the photographer Martin Beaumont and my model and class mate Emily.

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.

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
