A year in the life of Make up artist Amy Prifti - 2014

Wow, what an amazing 2014 this has been!

As well as starting up my own Make up Academy where I have met lots of lovely people, some of whom went on to work along side me and now have their own make up business which I am so proud to be a part of.

I still have my Wedding Hair and Make up business  which I love doing and feel privileged to be a part of any brides big day.

On top to that I have my self employed hair, make up business and beauty business, make and style wigs for various theatre productions and am lucky enough to work at Glyndebourne Opera House during their season in Sussex as well as being the hair stylist for Annabelle's Wigs and having so many fab experiences this year that I don't think I could list them all!

Some of my highlights have been;
Designing the hair and make up for Isaac Raymond Fashion along with Fran Carter where we was joined by a whole team of make up artists and hair stylists to create all the looks needed for the show.

I have been lucky enough to work on so many photo shoots this year so am finding it pretty hard to narrow down my highlights but top on my list would have to be this shoot taken at Amberley Castle in May with the mega talented costume designer Chrissie Nicholson-Wild 

This was a really special shoot for me and will remain strongly in my memories for years to come. Not only because of the amazing dresses that Chrissie lovingly created but because of the team of people I had the pleasure of working with  being so relaxed, professional and making the whole day fun (new friendships were made) plus the location being extra amazing. (It's a real friggin castle that you get to stay in and walk around freely)

It is always a joy to work with photographer John Farrar and we created lots of fun looks on various models.

I would like to thank everyone who I worked with this year for making it such a great, creative and colourful year and I am really looking forward to working with new and old creatives in 2015.

Hope you all have a good one :-) - Amy Prifti  - Hair and make up Artist

Egyptian Photo shoot with Faith Obae

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

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! 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!   Before photo with no hair and make up Curlers in !

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
