Welcome to my first blog entry!! ^_^
This is going to be a place where I can document my photo shoots, make-up sessions and retouches. Knowledge should be shared and I hope you find something in these posts that help your own work in some way.
When we started this look, we wanted to do something that would match Joyce’s pretty shell earrings. She was friendly enough to bring her MAC Paint Pot with so I could test it out.
Products: MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study; Kryolan pigment in silver, Kryolan CEL sealer, Kryolan eyeshadow in Antracite and Eyelure’s lengthening Naturlites.
First time I got to use a MAC Paint Pot and I ABSOLUTELY loved the creamy texture so easy to blend. It created a perfect base to blend the Antracite into. I’ve been a huge fan of Eyelure’s false eyelashes for some time and they added a very natural finish to this look. I mixed some of the silver pigment and CEL Sealer to create white eyeliner, which was used on the lower lid.
For lighting I made use of a very useful corner facing a white wall in my flat. By bouncing my camera flash off the corner it creates a very even light for beauty shots. I will soon be updating a page with the basic equipment I make use of on a regular basis.
If you have any Questions about the make-up or lighting, feel free to leave a comment.
