The role of makeup in a photo shoot is often underestimated and overlooked, but using a professional makeup artist can totally transform the quality of images in a shoot.

  • Good makeup saves the photographers’ time on post production.
    Even the best models can benefit from well applied make up. Applied professionally it can even out skin tone, disguise puffy eyes and redness, as well as hide other other minor skin blemishes.
  • When the photographer and make-up artist work together they can design the make up to suit the style of shoot, from matching colours to the models natural look to creating edgy fashion magazine styles.
  • if you are working with clothes or backgrounds it is essential that the make up is designed to compliment the final image - this is where the skills of the make up artist come in to their own.

Makeup artists have the talent and knowledge to create a multitude of looks – from classic beauty to fantasy.

FOR THIS WORKSHOP WE WILL BE FOCUSING ON FANTASY as this will allow you to see how diverse and creative images can be created using great make up!
