My Shoot- Models and MUA

Grace Peploe- Makeup Artist

I have worked with Grace on a few shoots before, she is very professional and always fits my brief of the kind of makeup I want in my shoot. Grace is able to create a range of different looks from soft, natural skin looks to bold and colourful looks. She will be able to cater for the looks I am after for my shoot as she has a large makeup kit with a wide range of products.


Nana Bailey- Model 1

I haven’t worked with Nana before but I am looking forward to doing so. I sourced her from a new faces collection at ‘Model Management’ agency. She will work well for my shoot because she has clear, well toned skin, nice natural looking eyebrows, big eyes and big lips. Which will be perfect in showcasing the colours and makeup looks. Big bold colours will work well on her lips and her skin and really stand out in the images.


 

Emmy Burrows- Model 2

I have worked with Emmy before when it was my Billboard shoot where I shot a new advertising campaign for Illamasqua (image 3). Emmy is a natural in front of the camera and she also has really bold features, perfect for showcasing makeup looks. We worked really well together, and this gives me confidence that my shoot will go well again with her. I didn’t source Emmy from an agency this time around as I had her contact details to contact her personally for this shoot. I sourced her from Oxygen models when I used her before.

 

 

Sketching Into The Layouts

When it came to sketching my ideas into the layouts, I wasn’t sure which category my idea would come under, so I drew into two layouts instead of one. I sketched into the fashion and portrait layouts as I am unsure of which one mine comes under as there is a bit of a cross over within my idea.

My idea comes under portraiture in terms of the type of photos I will be taking… close up face shots, macro facial feature shots and some head shots yet it comes under fashion in terms of focusing on trends, colours and seasons.

Summarising My Shoot

A quick summary of what I will be photographing for my editorial Telegraph Magazine shoot. It will be a fun and intimate portrait shoot, showing the latest beauty trends for the current Spring/Summer 2018 season. I will shoot a range of style shots from macro shots, to close portrait to even some shots from the neck upwards.

The macro shots will focus on areas of the face such as the eyebrows, eyes and lips. The macro eyebrow shots would show one trend of big bushy eyebrows (for example) and then another macro shot would show the bright pink lip colour (for example).

The close up portraits would show how colours look in comparison to skin colour and again, showing more makeup trends for the season. So in the close up images, I would photograph the model laughing, or winking or smiling with another lip colour on thats on trend at the moment, and then get one of the model closing one eye to show the eyeshadow colour on their lid.

The more far away shots from the neck up would be showing the gold highlight trend that is applied to the cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and collar bones. Again, showing another makeup trend for the current season.
