Rocky Mountain Entertainment Agency
Flathead Lake, Montana
In early July OMD4 Makeup & FX was back in Montana for Rocky Mountain Entertainment Agency's (RMEA) Summer workshop in Big Fork, which sits on the north side of the beautiful Flathead Lake.
I had the pleasure of working with Billings-based photographer, Jenna Martin for my first ever underwater photoshoot.
We spent the one day at Wild Horse Island, a state park where a small group of wild horses can be found and one of many islands found around Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River.
Finding makeup suitable for an underwater shoot can be tricky. Few of your drugstore-brand lines will work as they are typically water-based products. You need to find products that will allow the water to bead on the surface and not wash away the product. Mister lipstick was long-lasting and truly popped underwater. Products from MUA (Makeup Academy available in the UK), MAC Cosmetics and Kat von D completed my underwater tool kit.
Even during one of the hottest summers this area has seen in years, the water was icy cold, but all involved were committed to the shoot and the results speak for themselves.
