X Marks The Spot Calendar Shoot in aid of Cancer Research..

Posted in Shoots with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2009 by Made Up With MAKEUP

Friday 23rd October saw the calendar shoot  for the Irish Cancer Society kick off, owing to the  hard work and determination of the fabulous Niamh Fitzsimons (calendar girl). My beautiful models for the day were Lisa Nolan (Miss Antrim 2009) and Noirin Kelly (Big Brother 2009)…The shoot took place in The Morgan Hotel…The calendar will be available on pigsback.com and Dubray bookstores, so please please please buy one…

The theme was 1940’s/1950’s pin-up (facechart below for Lisa).  Brown shadow was used to contour above the crease with a light shadow on the lids and matt red used on the lips (slightly exaggerated on top lip to give that 1940’s perfect pout!  Brown pencil was used to fill in Lisa’ brows and extended at the ends a little.  Black liquid liner was also used together with the lashes and glue as below…

This shoot was very much a team effort with several photographers, makeup artists, models, hairstylists and last but not least clothing stylist – all lending a hand on the day and with such a large group needless to say a very fun and creative day was had by all.

Individual Lashes….

EYELASHESJust a quick blog on individual lashes… I’ve been practising my speed with individ. lashes  on my sis who loves her fake lashes 🙂 She usually gets up to 2 weeks out of them as I use semi-permanent glue!!! Lashes can be great in phot0graphic situations and can really help open up the eyes…Haven’t used them much on my own eyes but for the practise and for something a little different, I did tonight. The above pic shows Individual_Lashesyou the effect you can achieve. 

 

Individual look like this... These lashes are a great alternative to strip for all brides and can be applied with regular glue or semi-permanent for a more lasting effect.  I’m liking the effect, might have to put them on more often!!! As with all glue, it is imperative to do a patch test prior to use!!!

Oh happy to say my blog stats are growing, so don’t be shy and leave a comment 🙂
