Shoot: Graduate Design

13 Apr

Today I worked with photographer Clare Chojnowski and Fashion Designer Sian Gabbidon from Huddersfield University.

The shoot was for a Graduating Designers clothing collection, an orange and white range of oversized garments contrasting with close fit pieces. Along with myself there was a hair stylist – I always love working with hair stylists as they always give great tips and usually are interested in knowing about my makeup work!

The makeup look was to be clean and natural, with an orangey tinge to the eye area – for this I used a beautiful multi-tonal orange form the Nyx Eyeshadow palette I bought form the IMATS last year.

The models were absolutely stunning, towering over me in heels at around 6″3′. I’m so small. I even tried to take heels with me to offset this usual pattern – it didn’t work. It’s okay, I’m pretty sure being small is going to come in really useful for me one day soon.

Final images will be up within a couple of weeks!

UPDATE

I have the final edits, I am really happy with the outcome, the girls look great and Clare’s Photography is wicked.

2014 – The Beginning!

28 Jan

It has been two months since I last wrote, I have been seriously neglecting my blogging duties!

I’m going to split this update into two posts; this one documenting the work I have done since my last post, and the second documenting my work today.

In the brief period I had during the winter holidays, I have tried to boost my portfolio work, experimenting with new techniques, new artistic teams and design. Here is a selection of work from the five shoots I completed during January:

As you can see, these are all more of an editorial/fashion base, with varying historical influence. I chose to look at this particular area as this semester I will be far removed from that in my student work. In the classroom, I will be focusing on technical processes in special effects workshop productions, specifically in creature design and manufacture!

Besides this, I had a working holiday; Christmas and New Year just don’t do it for me anymore. Next NYE I hope to be abroad and adventuring, so perhaps the holidays will regain my spirit! I know year holds much mental change for me, I can see already my development in thought processes and hope this flows through to my artistic work, I see lots of positive change in my future!

SHOOT: Pretty Grunge; with Scott Salt & Lunar Rising

22 Nov

Today I decided to do a quick practice fashion shoot, with my favourite model and photographer – Abi Wright and Scott Salt!

Initially the shoot was meant to be a boho experimentation, linking to my  Task 2 work so I could practice my make-up. However, having just received many new beautiful items in the post, I decided instead to style based on my new pretty pieces.

I still used the main principles of my Task 2, keeping to an English Rose style of makeup, though darkening it for the black outfits. I also managed to still involve curled volume (after using hot sticks) and plaits in the hair, keeping the style simple and elegant.

Overall I’m really happy with the shoot, I need to develop my fashion portfolio and I am quickly gaining confidence now in this style of makeup after recently having the realisation I can literally draw, paint and create whatever I want. Seems a simple revelation but it’s taken a while to come to terms with it!

My First Face Chart

15 Oct

I just wrote a huge piece but my tablet deleted it!

Today I did my first face chart. I found a face shape I though was suitable to use for the rest of my year and adapted it so it had one eye closed, making it more suited for displaying the eye makeup. As an after thought, next time I shall also make her forehead smaller.

The makeup we were asked to do had to be based on cultures and countries. Due to being short of time before my next move, I chose to look at the simple yet versatile makeup of the Geisha.

I chose to create my face chart using a black fine liner, black sharpie and the makeup products directly. I found the application and blending process quite hard, however although the piece is not quite as I wanted in my head, it does display what I wish to do. Next to the image I have listed the products and brushes used to make creating the final piece easier and quicker to carry out.

During this semester, I am going to use a different media each time to create my charts, including CAD; enabling myself to find the materials most suited to my own method of working.

I will be carrying out the practical for this makeup tomorrow, so stay tuned!
