I recently did the makeup for Gemma and Emmette, both models, for a photography workshop day at Nigel Fleming Photography. This was held at Parkanaur. Gemma and Emmette are two gorgeous people so it was just a pleasure doing their makeup. They both have amazing skin and great features which makes applying makeup so much easier. For Emmette I just used MAC Face & Body Foundation, light powder, and slight contouring with vaseline on the lips. As Gemma has beautiful sallow skin and dark eyes I kept the tones in keeping with her skin tone and added false lashes with a pinch of blusher on the cheeks to add bridal prettiness. I also changed her lips to a red lip half way through the day for something different.

Yesterday, the gorgeous Aoife came into the studio for a full model portfolio photoshoot. The first look of a full model portfolio photoshoot  involves doing a very natural look set of photos ie. white vest and jeans, girl next door look so very minimal, barely there makeup. Within a model portfolio there should also be photos that are a bit more fashion based too so I changed Aoife’s makeup to a stronger look and also for a few photos at the end did a more graphic smokey eye with a nude lip.  The makeup for a model portfolio photoshoot should also translate well into black & white photos so the contouring should be good with good definition on the eyes etc. Here’s the four looks (taken on my phone) the first with no makeup at all just as Aoife arrived, then minimal makeup look and then the two more fashion makeup looks. I’ll let you decide which you prefer the best!.
