Joe Blasco Makeup

Since I started my makeup career Joe Blasco was were I started. I studied editorial, runway makeup application. There products are very good but you really need to use them in the proper way. This product is really theatrical makeup, but can be used for everyday and also evening looks. Setting the product is also very important when using this brand, very important. And using to much in your applications will give you a pancake type look. The product is to be used sparingly. Especially with the foundations.

In this photo-shoot I used Chianti Lip Pencil as the full coverage for the lips. The pencil can be used as a liner or for full coverage. It is a very moist liner and locking in the product is also very important. I like to use a translucent powder for this purpose. The colors are very, very vivid. So if you do not lock in the product it will move.

The makeup line is very good to use. You can find the Joe Blasco store and place your orders. Some of the products are dated such as the 1980’s to now so choose wisely. Joe Blasco lip pencils are available in a soft formula’s or theatrical. Which can be used for either full lip coloring or lip lining. The cost of this pencil was $20.00. Also remember when the product is set it will hold well and not move.

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.
