"Sky High" Photoshoot - some tips about Photoshoots

"Sky High" was my first photoshoot in Australia in collaboration with the absolutely amazing and talented photographer Heidi Hannele, very beautiful and professional Australian model Matilda Finnegan & really lovely Hair Stylist Jaala Brinsmead. 

 "Sky High" was published in "Like A Lion Magazine" in August 2013. As you can see from the pictures I started with very natural make up (natural make up, is when you really can't see it, but it doesn't mean you don't have it on). As even for the natural make up, the Make up Artist always puts primer & foundation to make all the skin look even, work on the correction of the face (contouring), hiding any "imperfections", cover any shine or oiliness & so on, that makes the photographer's work easier, and in the end making it all look almost invisible.

 On the second look I created Brown Smokey eyes (using my Box of Smokey Look Collection by
Nyx Cosmetic). The good thing about the second look, is that it's always easier to 'build' from the natural look, as you already have the base you need for it, so usually it never takes long.

The third look is very different, in this case you have to wipe all the eye make up, & start again, but the good thing you don't spend time doing the foundation, as you already have it. In this case I used my favourite black eyeliner "Quill" by Lime Crime. Most important is to have a stable hand, do the shape of one eye first & then do the same on the other, trying to make them even.
And in the end (my favourite part), the Creative Look. As Matilda has beautiful golden hair, the choice of golden make up was quite easy (Gold looks always great on blondes). Gold & Red go perfectly together, and the Red lips enhance the total look. For eye decoration, I used again eyeliner "Quill" & drew all that by free hand, adding some rhinestones on top & for the rest, just let your fantasy free as creativity has no limits.

So here's the magazine with our work. 4 very different looks in one photoshoot & of course a backstage video.

I hope you enjoyed it, so see you soon with some other interesting post :)
