Holiday Makeup Tips For Special Engagements

2020 Joseph Kellner Hair/Makeup/Photo-Shoots

Whether you’ve always wanted to try fake eyelashes or a bright red lipstick, the holidays are the time to try something new. Practice makes perfect. Always test your new look first before your big debut, ensuring you will look and feel your best.

A little sparkly shadow on the eyelids is an easy way to dress up your eye makeup in less than ten seconds. Check out this glam tutorial to help you nail the look. If looking like a disco ball isn’t your thing, go for a more natural, cream highlight and matte lip, or use glitter as a little pop in the center of your eye-shadow for a subtle effect.

The cold, winter months can leave our skin looking dull and dry. Cream blush is an excellent way to add extra radiance and hydration at the same time. When choosing a brighter color, make sure you blend, blend and blend on the cheeks until it looks natural and smooth. The key is starting with a light touch and softly adding pigment as you go. 

Use high-quality brushes to apply eye shadow. Otherwise, your makeup could disperse.

If you choose a bright color, make the rest of your makeup simple. Otherwise, it can create a clown effect.

Harsh lip-lines will ruin your look. It’s best to blend lines.

Don’t stick to only black eyeliner. You can try using different colors according to your skin tone. Brown colors, from light to dark, are best suited to light skin colors, especially with green eyes and blonde hair.

Always choose a larger brush for applying face powder so that it lies as accurately as possible.

Don’t skip filling in your eyebrows if they are sparse. Don’t use dark pencils – it’s better to use an eye shadow combined with an angled brush instead.

In case you need to lighten foundation that is darker than you need, apply it with a wet sponge. You can also mix it with different beauty products, such as concealer or powder that are lighter in color, moisturizer or primer.

Trying a new makeup look for the holidays is no fun if you’re in a rush. Create an experience, put on your favorite playlist, light a scented candle and enjoy playing with makeup. Have just as much fun putting on your makeup as wearing it.

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.
