Make-Up Portfolio

Hello dear readers,

I wish to excuse myself for my absence lately but my life has been very hectic, apart from my full time work, I have been very lucky in make-up jobs and currently rehearsing for another Voices concert. If you follow my Facebook page I have uploaded a bunch of photos of my recent work, I still have more to upload but in the meantime you can have a look of what I have been up-to so far.

MUA Portfolio page

I also uploaded most of the looks on my MUA Portfolio page, in which there are mentioned some of the amazing photographers I have worked with. I whish to thank especially two different photographers Fritz Von Weisberg and Eva Ferrier, for giving me the opportunity to work with them. They are both have very different artistic styles, but both of them believed in my artistic talent, for which I will be always grateful for.

As time goes by, I do hope I get to chance to work with other various photographer and apart from that have different clients, that will enable me to create whatever they and I want.

Once I organize myself a bit better, I will post more reviews, make-up looks and fashion segments. If you wish for me to post anything in particular, do not hesitate, by commenting down below. I always love to read your comments and get to know you guys.

XOXO

Fallen Angel – Make-up shoot

Hello lovely followers,

A month ago I had the opportunity to work with an amazing French Photographer Eva Ferriere. She wanted me to do a make-up for a “Fallen Angel” theme photo-shoot she had in mind. I was super excited to work on this shoot, being that I would let out my artistic skills.  The look I did was inspired by the gorgeous costume we had for the shoot, by Fabian Galea -PR for the Bugeja Costume Company in Gozo.

 

I did a couple of sketches as you can see below and let Eva decide which one she liked best. The final look is a bit dramatic but still has a certain elegance and flair to it. Basically it’s a mixture between dark and light, good and evil.

Sometimes in a fallen angel theme, it tends to be very dark and goth. I wanted something complete different, because even though she is fallen, there is an element of good in her.

The look consists of a golden brown mixture of eye-shadow which match the costume. Then I followed by applying the black liner creating a feather like effect, similar to the wings of an angel. Finally I applied some glitter liner in two colours gold and silver/green, these remind us of good element when combine with the dark black liner. Then added some final touches by adding small white rhinestones to  the edges of the feather-like-liner. The lips were left a little bit natural and a nice glow was given to the cheeks by using a pink blusher and highlighter.

Check out some of the gorgeous photos by Eva  and the beautiful model Christine Zammit :

Overall I am really please with the final look, the images look great,and the make-up look really goes on well with the costume and backdrop.

Do feel free to contact me if you need me for a photo-shoot or any other special occasion. Let me know what you think about this look, would appreciate a thump up and like on facebook and do feel free to follow me through email.

Photoshoot with Valeria and Fritz Photography

Hello dear lovely readers,

Last week, I had one hell of a busy week, however it was filled with some exciting events, one of them was this lovely shoot I had last Sunday. I had the pleasure to work with a lovely Swiss model called Valeria and the very much talented  German photographer Fritz from Fritz Photography.

Valeria wanted something natural colours on the eyes, for which I used a mixture of brown colours  from the very light to the dark shades. While for the lips, something a bit more bold and colourful for which I used a lovely matte red lipstick.  I am very pleased with the final result, however I did encounter some make-up problems with her fake lashes, because her left eye kept tearing up and the lashes couldn’t stick nor dry. Which reminds me, that I need to buy some various types of fake lashes hehe.

Her make-up stayed put throughout the photo-shoot, there was honestly no need for retouching and that’s all thanks to some of my fabulous high quality products . I still assisted during the photo-shoot and made sure I had all the essentials, just in case there was any need.

The products which they are a must for every make-up look, if it’s for a photo-shoot or any other occasions for which the make-up has to look good for hours are primers. I used my favorite Prep and Prime by MAC primer all over her

face and for the eye’s the Urban Decay Potion Primer which works wonders for the eye-shadow to stay put for over 4 hours. These primers are a bit pricey, but they are worth every penny and give the best results, which I believe that in the end all of my clients deserve the best.
