Behind the scenes of a video shoot

Yesterday I trotted off to Chris Giles Photography Studio with my Model, Dora Giani to make some mini video's to demonstrate to the general public how to create make up looks.
Here are a few 'behind the scenes' pictures I took whilst there;

Chris making sure that he has put the memory card into the camera ! ( these things must be double checked)

Make up laid out ready to start, with those all important cups of tea.
Checking the Lighting in the studio - Dora amused by all the fuss!
Keeping Warm between takes.
Just a few of the make up looks I have created a make up demo for you to recreate.

NOW FOR A SNEAKY PEAK of smoky eyes look - video tuition to follow....  We had a great day making these videos for the general public to view and recreate the looks themselves - I will be releasing the videos throughout 2012 (hopefully one between now and New Year) - All on my youtube channel - makeupbyAmyP

A Christmas Wedding at The High Rocks, Tunbridge

Image
Last weekend's wedding was a very last minute one  - In fact, the head bridesmaid contacted me only two weeks before the wedding and asked me to do make up for the bride and 3 bridesmaids - no trial needed!

Therefore, I turned up with my entire make up kit, ready for a Christmas wedding, and boy did I get one! - The bride wore Red and seeing as all the girls were young, they were happy to experiment with make up and use as much colour as possible!

Yeah for me - two weddings in a row where I get to do what I want! (as long as they like the final result) - Of course, they loved their make up, and now I get to share it with you;
 The Bride wore red  Base - Supercover, Concealer - Dermacolor, Powder - Supercover Setting Powder, Eyebrows - Kryolan eyebrow powder, Eyelids - Yellow all over, orange / gold liner above and below eyes, concealer pencil on inner eyes, Black liquid eyeliner applied on top eye lid finished by applying false eyelashes and maybelline mascara, Cheeks - supercover…

Wedding at Selsdon Park Hotel, Croydon

After awaking at 4.30am and leaving at 5am, I arrived at Selsdon Park Hotel in Croydon for a big traditional wedding.
We started getting ready with hair and make up at 6am, 1 bride and 6 bridesmaids later, off they went at 12pm to get married - all looking wonderful!

The bride had already had a trial at my house so I arrived knowing exactly what she wanted - as far as her bridesmaids were concerned, the bride asked me to do 'whatever they asked' and boy did they ask! - Each bridesmaid wanted to bring out their individual style and personality resulting in them being extremely happy on the day, and me having so much fun !

The Beautiful Bride, looking stunning in White make up as follows - Foundation - supercover #34, Concealor - supercover #34, Powder - supercover ultra fine setting powder colourless (white), Eyebrows -Kryolan eyebrow colour in Dark Eyeshadow, Eyeshadow - Kryolan Beige G base, Unbranded Purple on the socket and outer corners, Unbranded silver in the middle, Li…
