Electro Pop Retro Photoshoot
Hi girls, I wanted to share some of the latest beauty shots from a recent electro pop retro boudoir photoshoot with a client.
The focus was on the blue backdrop as the outfit was very simple. I added a top hat and cane to help my model relax into the shoot. Props to me are vital when the client isn't a model in real life. They really help get with nerves, especially when used with a character and music. I told Becky my client to feel like she was a vintage show girl. We put some music on and I showed her a few poses to help her get into character.
I'm loving all the retro pinup photoshoots I'm offering at the moment and being a makeup artist means I get to play with the latest products that have launched. I used the latest Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation and Kevin Aucoin's Electro pop eyeshadow pallet for this look along with a blue based red lip.
I wanted a really dewy, soft skin with a strong lip as I intended to create a few of these images in black and white. Strong lips converted into black and white look so stunning.
The new Nars fNatural Radiant Longwear Foundation The claim is that it's the first 16-hour foundation that stays turned on by the power of radiance. And is untraceable, unstoppable and unlike anything else. I have to say my models skin looked amazing on camera and its made light work of editing. It's also very lightweight and is really radiant so my flash created a lovely soft finish.
It really is a high coverage foundation and looks very natural. It smoothed out any imperfections Becky had and enabled me to build it where I needed. So that was a big plus for me. Building on what you have as a makeup artist is so impressive.
It also claims to be breathable and fade-resistant. I have been wearing this for a few days and as long as I'm not touching my face It does what it says! I'm a bit of a face rubber especially when editing images! Bad I know but I simply can't help it. It's all the concentration!
This foundation is also infused with Raspberry, Apple and Watermelon extracts. Wow can it get any better? So over time it suggests it will help you skin for full-powered radiance. Well let's see!
It wears longer, stays stronger, and looks better with each hour., unless your rubbing your face like me! Specialised skin-matching technology ensures your truest match yet and yes thats very true! So my verdict is that I love it.
Now we move on to the other major wow factor for this photoshoot......The eyes! I adore anything from Kevin Aucoin. He just gets women in a way i can't explain. Every product i pick up in SpaceNK from his range I need in my life!
This stunning 12 shade palette helps nearly anyone to create bold eyes in one fail swoop. Sheer, highly pigmented and dreamy. The website says it creates multidimensional looks and by god it does! The delicious creamy texture is infections and mind blowing! The blue, pale pink and green I used blended so perfectly. I'm in total love!
I hope you liked reading about the beauty side of my shoots! I'm planning on doing more this year!
