Beauty hair and makeup
Beauty hair and makeup is all about the fine and delicate details. The art in this work is in the finishing touches, so whether it is enhancing a natural beauty spot, putting that one eyelash back in place or taming a single flyaway hair, everything should have its place and purpose. Beauty stories are generally shot very close which means that there is nowhere to hide; any flaws in your work will instantly be magnified. Beauty work is predominately about the skin (which I am 100 per cent in favour of), bone structure and tonal variations. As an artist, you have to focus on the model’s strongest features and find a way to enhance them in the subtlest way. For editorials, portfolio work or brand images, it is about beginning with a natural, flawless look and building on that to communicate a story. I love to create a flow of images that encapsulate beauty and design, femininity and imperfect perfection. It is extremely satisfying for me to create clean, glossy, eye-catching concepts that push the boundaries of traditional “no makeup” makeup looks and traditional sleek and pull back hairstyles.
