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 – 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.

Colour Theory Fashion

For our final assessment of semester one we we’re given the task of creating a fashion make-up using colour theory. By using colour theory we were able to be as creative as we wanted when it came to creating a make-up look. After doing some research,see my pinterest  for a mini mood board (link here), I decided to go with complementary colour theory by using the colours purple and yellow. As part of our assessment we we’re given a chance to have professional photographs taken of our make-up as well as having the opportunity to get out of the college studio and out on location. Before I made a decision on my final make-up I experimented with different looks with the colours I wanted to use. Once I had finished experimenting I decided to go with a purple eye with a hint of yellow, a dark purple lip and gold eyebrows. Overall I am pleased with  my final look and after spending the day doing hair and make-up I feel that I would maybe like to have a career in fashion make-up or in editorial make-up. Below I will post the professional photos as soon as i get the but for now I have a few of my own.

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.
