Royals Management Photoshoot
When I get asked by fellow makeup artist Molly Alanna to help with a project, I rarely turn it down and the Royals Management photoshoot was no exception.
Hair, makeup, models, agency, videographer you name it, we were all involved and I'm glad I had the chance to work with such an amazing group of talent. Royals may be a new agency, but it has already drawn some big names in the industry for in-house workshops including America's Next Top Model (Cycle 21) Matthew Stephen Smith back in March.
Mister, a lipstick line by Molly Alanna, was featured during the shoot. I love working with her colourful lipsticks. They are smooth, vibrant and long lasting.
I had the pleasure of doing makeup for Shahn Yaceyko, a beautiful 14-year-old model with a bright future. Her stunning features and sweet personality will take her a long way.
For the shoot her look included simple flawless skin with bold brows and lip. I wanted to give her features a hauntingly beautiful touch, so I made her eyes a bit darker, but still kept the softness of her face.
I couldn't have asked for the photos to turn our any better then they did. Thank-you to our wonderful photographer, Katherine Kingston.
It's Wednesday Addams meets high fashion. Perfection!
Molly helped with the completed look for Corey Li's makeup (top photo) with a porcelain-like finish to the skin.
Corey even has a taste of Mister lipstick with Molly's awesome grey shade called Storm Trooper. Somehow a man wearing lipstick never looked so good. This high fashion New York style shoot was the perfect combination of simple beauty and hard work by a team of many.
The silliness on this shoot kept the environment fresh and stress free.
There is nothing better then a shoot with a group of people who have
the same passion for fashion.
Mark Abiner always knows how to keep the energy high and the laughs coming. When you put that with Ferd's 90s music collection and the crazy ways of Molly and myself, it made my job, well, not a job at all.
I cannot wait to shoot again with this innovative agency. Thanks for the memories and the reminder of why I love this industry.
