Model Using Mac Makeup For January Photo-Shoot

My first model for the new year is wearing a dress from Fashion-Nova.com a maxi-dress.  Also all of her cosmetic jewelry was from the same company. Before I do a photo-Shoot I like to have a makeup class to get the right colors for the shoot. A lot of times makeup outdoors will depend on the natural lighting given that day.  So I went for a natural application of MAC Makeup.  For all the makeup artists and hairdressers that read my blog you can go to any MAC store and book a 1 1/2 makeup class for you and your model.  It cost only $90.00 for the class and your model will get tons of samples to go home with. Also if you are a makeup artist or hairdresser you can apply for a MAC-PRO card and receive 30% off your purchases.

The first product we used was MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation, my model has freckles and I did not want to cover them up. I just wanted to get some coverage for the photography. Some tone to the skin. , Studio Fix concealer was also used to subdue any blue around the eyes. as you see below. NW24 was used for the application.  Both products have a very creamy consistency. And application was a breeze, without any feeling of full coverage.  A comfortable, lightweight fluid foundation with a unique blend of emollients that delivers sheer coverage and a satin finish. The moisturizing, long-wearing formula glides onto the face and body providing stay-true color.

We used a natural  eye shadow palette for the eyes, just to give the eyes a slight tone of color to them. This palette is called, “Amber Times Nine” also by Mac Makeup.  This well-edited palette features a color wave of amber hues that offer countless shade combinations. It provides an array of textures from matte to satin to frost for creating a variety of looks for both day and night. The saturated, soft and smooth hues are all packaged in one compact for easy portability.

Shade Description

  • Cozy Grey: Cool-grey (Matte)
  • Kitties: Pale bronze (Frost)
  • Georgia Peach: Dirty rose pink (Matte)
  • Rice-paper: Peachy gold with shimmer (Frost)
  • Creative Copper: Light beige (Luster)
  • Cork: Muted golden brown (Satin)
  • Don’t Tell: Sparkly brown (Luster)
  • Aromatic: Matte brown (Matte)
  • Pepper Please: Sparkly bronze copper brown (Velvet)

 

Shape and Shade Brow tint was used to detail the eyebrows and to give the shape and color.  Shape + Shade Brow Tint fuses the power of liquid and powder in a dual-ended product designed to define and set brows with ease. Fill brows effortlessly using the precision brush-tipped liquid liner on one end, then flip to the sponge on the other end to set your shape with the mess-free powder contained in the cap. This wax-infused powder makes brows smoother and gently holds them into place.

 

For our cheek powder we used Warm Soul BY MAC Makeup. Designed by and for professionals, formulated to provide fantastic color with ease and consistency. Applies evenly, adheres lightly to skin to achieve a natural-looking application of color. and also our lipstick we used was also a MAC product call, “Jubilee”.  M·A·C Lipstick – the iconic product that made M·A·C famous. This lightweight formula glides easily with sheer-to-medium coverage and a lustrous finish.

 

 

And she is ready for her Photo-Shoot.

Redken Hair Color Change For Fall

This Model was prepared for her Photo-Shoot this week and requested a deeper color all over. I also suggested that it would be a good idea since the hair was dry and brittle from constant overlapping and flat ironing.  When ever you use a curling iron or flat iron. Always prep the hair with a styling lotion and dry all of the hair thoroughly. Section your hair and curl or straighten it and use a dry hair spray on each section to protect it.  Don’t use any products with moisture in it.

A level 4.3 and 6.4 was mixed for the new-growth and also the same formula for the mid shaft and ends of the hair. With varying developer strengths. Shea Moisture Cosmetics was used to wash and condition the hair. And for styling the hair. Excellent product to work with. There was no color gloss’s added to the hair of the completion of the permanent hair color service.  Mac Makeup was used for her Photo-Shoot.  The Photo-Shoot was held on Melbourne Beach Florida.

Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Perfecting Balm

Kellner
Excellent product for those salon smooth blow outs. And I would recommend it also for home use.  I like to try out store-bought products and this does the job for salon use and this product has the strength to really give you a salon blow-out. Smooth things out with Hair Expert Smooth Intense Creme. Not only does the treatment add sleekness to every strand of your hair but it also protects leaving your mane less prone to heat styling damage. 

I really like the Straight Perfecting Balm. Most balms that help protect against heat are sticky and leave hair feeling like it has a filmy or thick texture but this balm completely absorbs into hair leaving it smooth and weightless. I love that not only does it help protect against heat it also makes hair easier to style and straighten and helps keep it straight for longer. It perfectly pairs with the other products in the Ultimate Straight Line and I would recommend to any one who straightens hair often or needs extra help to get hair straight.  And also the product has a lovely scent to it. Give it a try. Just take a quarter size amount for medium to long hair. Stay away from the scalp and only apply from mid shaft to ends. Comb through the hair with a wide tooth comb.  Gen at least half of the moisture out of the hair then apply a brush to sectioned hair. Use medium heat for blow drying the hair.  Once a section is dry apply a cool blast from your blow dryer to take away any fly away hairs. I like to use thermal roller brush’s to blow dry the hair. For a more formal look I like to use Boar bristle brush’s.  Once the hair if fully dried apply a small amount of the creme to the tips of your finger and brush through the hair. Iron in curls if necessary for the style you are looking for. And you are finished.  The product was used on the model pictured above and MAC Makeup was also used for her photo-shoot.

How I am learning more about hair color and makeup!

This model’s hair was low-lighted with several Goldwell Topchic colors to achieve a dimensional effect. Levels 6 through 7 were used from the Copper Gold and also Brown Gold family’s. The hair was also prelightened with 5 volume lightener. Goldwell Colorance hair color glazes Level 9 Neutral were applied for an even tonal value of the highlighted hair. Goldwell Hair-color was used for this color correction and home hair care was prescribed. Porosity has a lot to do with corrective hair color. I like to play on this condition of the hair to achieve tone. MAC makeup was used for her photo shoot she is a professional model and enjoys the variations of hair color change often. This is a Before & After Model.

Joseph Kellner SalonA lot of it is in the makeup and contouring. A lot of services are done in the salon but the change of makeup is not prescribed to the client. Hair color changes I offer to the client every season, so when the hair color changes so does the makeup and the techniques of applying the product. This I feel is a lost art and a lost art not done given in the salon. Hair color and make up go hand in hand. But also remember this is a model so you have to do the hair color for the camera also the makeup. The effects of light on the skin and hair can dramatically change the tonal value of the hair and makeup also. What helped me in my hair coloring and makeup was to step away from the client and look at the results, get goo light bulbs. Try and save up about $600.00 to $700.00 and get yourselves a good camera and lean how to focus on out-door lighting. You will see you work and it is a great way to critic your self. I love to use Cannon good camera to work with. Then set up a photo shoot with clients take pics of them, then you will get better with your makeup and placement of hair color. That’s how I learned on my own.
