Make Up Inspiration

Every now and then I like to get into the studio with a model and photographer to have some creative fun, learn and use new techniques and generally this helps me to become a better make up artist and hair stylist.

Sometimes these 'studio days' have a plan which takes a few weeks to get everything together before we all meet up and create the final look.

Other times we just play it by ear, wait until we get to the studio or some one will put forward a suggestion which we go with and then let the shoot unfold before our eyes.

My Latest shoot was the later of the 3 above.

I got together with photographer Emma Meston - and model / hair stylist Yolanda Carella with a 'monochrome' out line.

I quickly ordered a few bobs from Annabelle's Wigs so that we could play around with a few different styles and we all met up at the studio.

The studio that we was in has a huge 'prop' section, lots of clothes and all sorts of things so as soon as you enter the studio, my mind starts to tick whilst taking it all in.

There are also a few photos by photographer John Farrar which are truly inspirational.

Here are the results of that creative day;

 Yolanda brought along a hair piece that she had made at home using plenty of hair extensions that fitted in perfectly with our theme.

Once we had finished with our looks of the day I couldn't help but spot some hundreds and thousands sitting on the side so quickly we found a pink dress and managed to get one final look for the day and covered yolanda in sugar coated strands!

Let me know what you think of the results :-)

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

1950's hair and make up for secret cinema screening of Grease the musical

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!

Art Nude Photo shoot

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
