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.
AND ........................ 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
PLEASE NOTE - THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY Leading on from the art nude photo shoot with Photographer Richard Maxim, one of the required looks was based on an Egyptian theme. Richard asked if we could aim towards a traditional Egyptian look, based on stonework; I love the finished photos :-) We then gave it more of a fashion look Finishing off with a more creative Egyptian look; Hair and make up - Amy Prifti Model - Faith Obae Photographer - Richard Maxim Stylist - Falcieri Designs
Recently I was contacted by two local girls who was going off for a secret cinema screening of Grease the Musical. They asked if I could do their hair and make up 50's style so that they looked the part! I love doing hair and make up like this as it is so much fun. I love any make up from the 1920's onwards as woman really knew how to style themselves and how to wear their make up with pride..... that and big red lips! Here, with the girls permission are the before and after shots of them. All natural before any hair and make up Curlers in, Make up applied Close up of make up with eyes closed Side view of hair pinned up front quiff The finished article!

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form. I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs. It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks; Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold. Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up. I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos. The photo above is my favourit
