Bevan Davis – Salome

“A Moment in Time” is the brainchild of Boss Models and Artist Management along with Bell-Roberts Gallery. It is an exhibition of photographic works by some of South Africa’s most talented fashion photographers, stylists and hair and make-up artists, all of which are 1/1 and signed by the artist. The exhibition opened on the 22nd of October, and patrons are invited to bid for the works online up until the 30th of October 2009.  All proceeds go to “Missing Children SA Charity.”

I worked with Bevan Davis for some of the images in his part of the exhibition. Bevan asked for make-up that was simple and clean, but still sexy rather than nude. Bevan is not only a fantastic photographer, but also a master of post production, all of which he does himself. For me, Bevan’s series is timeless, and I gaze upon the images the way I do… [ Read more ]

Cait­lin models a look that plea­ses her parents yet still flirts with the boho spi­rit of care­free playfulness.

Make-Up: Main Make-up Ingre­dients: MAC: Apply Strobe Cream — to give the skin radiance, the buff Stu­dio Fix Fluid -( in my expe­rience it’s the lon­gest wea­ring of MAC’s foun­da­tions which makes it ideal for bri­des) into the skin with a stip­pling brush (I like the #187). Apply “Shroom” to the inner cor­ners of the eye,vani­lla” under the brow bone, “Cork” and “bronze” to the crease, “All that glit­ters” to the ball of the eye and “graphblack” technakohl liner along the lash­line with an angle brush.

Main Make-up Ingredients: MAC: Apply Strobe Cream – to give the skin radiance, the buff Studio Fix Fluid -( in my experience it’s the longest wearing of MAC’s foundations which makes it ideal for brides) into the skin with a stippling brush (I like the #187). Apply “Shroom” to the inner corners of the eye,vanilla” under the brow bone, “French Grey” to the crease, “All that glitters” to the ball of the eye and “embark” along the lashline with an angle brush. Fuzz a little extra of embark into the outer edges of the crease. Gently exaggerate the line of the eye with “blacktrack” fluidline. Set the brows with clear brow gel, and then gently fill them in with an angle brush and an eyeshadow like “brun”, gently dust some “strada” (matt) blush under the cheekbone for contour, and dust a little “blushbaby” over the top of the[ Read more ]

Pink Lady

I kept the eyes neutral toned, and sculpted them with texture, applied some individual false lashes (I find the individual lashes look more natural as they lack the “spine” visible with a full false lash) to bring out the shape of the eyes and then matched the lipstick to the wig with MAC’s Amplified Lipstick “Girl About Town”

Bridal Boutique (2)

An additional post of the Robert Miller/ Chelsea L fresh faced bridal look. I sculpted her face with  texture rather than lines.

Robert and I went for some “Bridal shots”.  Rob and Cally and I were testing with Chelsea L from Infinity – Cally had a Gavin Rajah silvery, slinky, beaded wedding dress with her so we went ahead with a fresh skinned “bridal” look.

Main Make-Up ingredients: MAC: strobe cream (radiance), face and body foundation (powder only where necessary), mineralise skinfinish (one shade darker than her complexion for a gentle contour – alt product, bronzer in “golden”) eyeshadow: “cork” , “brule”, “vanilla”, cremeblush in “uncommon” lip pencil: “spice” lipstick: “honeylove” mixed with “kinda sexy” topped with clear lipglass.

Main Hair ingredients: Bobby-Pins, Brilliant Blonde Shine cream.

Make-Up is the ultimate accessory

Make-Up is the ultimate accessory.  Ask a woman to imagine a little black dress without a bracelet or her favorite handbag and she can probably picture a different bag – but ask most women to imagine the same dress without eye-liner or lipstick or mascara (or concealer) and she’ll probably start to feel a little nervous.
