Preparing My Model For Her Next Photo-Shoot!

Getting a model prepared for a photo-shoot is a lot of fun and joint cooperation. Some models who are serious about there portfolio. And they will go to the ends of the earth to prepare for a schedule job.  And believe me it is a job, hair makeup, wardrobe, skin etc.  I go through a system for all my models. I run a add on model mayhem for all new models looking for photographs. I provide there wardrobe, a MAC Makeup class. Which we will get all needed cosmetics for the photo-shoot. that will match there outfit. I normally like to get dresses for my models. And I also like to use props for them, instead of doing the same old portrait shooting.  I have been a hairdresser/makeup artist for 30 years and started doing photography 7 years ago.

 

My models photo-shoot is at the end of the month and it was every important to get the right makeup formula’s. We used MAC Makeup foundation Studio Face and Body Foundation., Studio Fix Smooth Wear Concealer, for the face.  Mac Makeup Brow set for the eyebrows, 3D Black Lash Mascara, Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette in Dark to Medium Tones.  The contour palette was also used for the eye shadows and highlighting on the brow bone.  Always remember to learn how to manipulate your makeup kit for all uses.  For the lips we used Retro Matte Lipstick and also as a pencil for the lips. All MAC products were used for this makeup up session. And I would highly recommend using this line for photography, the product will not move or dissipate in color tones.  But most of all you really have to clean the face and also in photography you have to use a primer for the outdoors. Especially in this Central Florida weather, or the makeup will melt off.

I like to buy my wardrobe from the following online clothing stores.

All these company’s provide lovely outfits for all times of the year.  All wardrobe is provide for free to all the models including hats, accessory’s, shoes.  I feel it is very important to script your photo-shoots and have the proper makeup that fits your model. By doing all of these before a photo-shoot then you will have a winning session. I feel through experience. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare.  Photo’s will becoming soon for her next photo-shoot at the end of the month.

Go To A Professional Hairdresser!

A new customer contacted me from my website josephkellner.com

She asked me could she make an appointment and she did. Her hair color was 70% grey and on a level 5-6 on the warm side.  The rest of her hair from mid-shaft to ends was a dirty blonde and very, very dry. Her hair was naturally wavy and with medium thickness. She asked me to cancel out the red base she got from using a product recommended for her hair to lift and tone to a level 6 cool. I believe that when a person goes into a store such as Sally’s you don’t get a professional answer. For one thing the clerks are paid horribly and usually they are a beauty school drop out. So having said that I told her I could do the job. for her and this would be a corrective hair color service. $$$$ Here we go.

Simply starting with just a simple foil highlight to help reduce the red copper on her roots, and also touching the past foil highlight she had done. I used also a low light indiscriminately all over which was a level 7 neutral. Finishing the foil light I proceeded to place a level 7-8 blue-green on the roots and the new growth of the hair. Mind you she was a home hair-color job, where she got the color and advice from a sally’s employee. I processed the hair for 35 minutes.

We proceeded to cut the hair a good amount, and then we did our blow out. I recommended the Shea Moisture Shampoo to her for her hair type and condition.

DRY, DAMAGED OR TRANSITIONING HAIR
Our Sulfate-Free shampoo helps to give moisture to dry damaged or over-processed hair. Perfect for transitioning chemically treated hair to natural. So the customer was happy and make sure if you go to Sally’s don’t ask a clerk about hair color.  Go to a professional Hairdresser!
