Yesterday I had the opportunity to work on a project that I’m REALLY excited about! I used to be excited before the shoot but after seeing some of the results from yesterday I can not WAIT to see the top product – which thankfully can be out by June 17th (do not you HATE when you have to attend FOREVER for stuff to return out).
So what was this amazing project I was engaged on yesterday you ask Well I was doing the Hair & Makeup for a really hot video editorial for Lilogi – a brand new Fashion webzine. It’s so cool b/c I’ve wanted to work on a video editorial for awhile b/c they’re so popular right now but unfortunately hadn’t had the chance then my good stylist friend Alexandra Loeb came to me w/ this project and that i wasn’t booked so of course I jumped at the opportunity!
We literally could not have asked for a greater day yesterday…we were a bit worried about rain but where we were shooting it was literally perfection throughout us! We were shooting in the middle of nowhere – literally about 2 hrs East of Toronto out near Picton! ! or something like that at this Beach/Sand Dunes area. It was gorgeous but boy was it far away…like closer to Kingston than Toronto which when you are doing a at some point shoot makes for an extended day! Thankfully, it was SO WORTH IT!
It was a Beach themed shoot about a model getting back to nature. Very sexy and earthy – bronzy, natural, glowing, a bit disheveled – you get the concept. They wanted these really natural beachy waves – w/ plenty of texture and even frizz and it was the proper opportunity for me to make use of my RSessions Naluwaver which is great for creating that perfect beach wave…afterwards I just teased and tousled it a bit to present it that worn in, messy look. For the makeup it was all concerning the Bronzed Beauty. Very natural and bronzy on the eyes, bronzed glowing cheeks and just some gloss on the lips. how to untangle hair I also used a bronzing gel on her body although she was already pretty tan (note it was NOT a self tanner – just a bronzing gel by L’oreal – worked well – not an excessive amount of shimmer which I was worried about).
One of many coolest things concerning the shoot was it actually brought me back to my Shanghai roots. The model Genevieve and i had actually worked together w/ Todd Anthony Tyler in Shanghai during my 1st trip to Shanghai (I didn’t even have the blog then). I used to be there for two mths within the Summer before I spent 6 mths there and Genevieve was a model we used for a shoot we did that ended up in PUSH it Magazine. Lovely girl – GORGEOUS FACE! Seriously, she has a really unique look to her and I am just in love w/ her cheekbones and lips and her eyes are the most piercing blue eyes! Her skin barely needed any foundation. I used a little bit of Yaby concealer and Face Atelier Foundation b/c I wanted to offer her that basically natural dewy look plus of course a number of highlighting/contouring and bronzing! And OMG her body…that is all I have to say – HER BODY!
So we shot in 3 different “main locations” and throughout those 3 locations. It was a really laid back group and a lot fun b/c it was ALL GIRLS! I do not know if I’ve ever been on a fashion shoot where it’s been ALL GIRLS – Model, Stylist, Editor, MUA, Videographer/Photographer & Assistant – Yeah Girl Power! The light looked beautiful on Genevieve esp. w/ the reflector added in and it just gave her essentially the most airbrushed glow. Seriously, when you see the pics I got just how to untangle hair off of my little digital camera – they are amazing and obviously not retouched or anything At all! Seriously, I do not get jealous of models that often but I was jealous lol!
We alternated between Video & Photographic stills and also did some macro shooting of the jewelery that was being featured in for the shoot. The jewelery designer is this awesome sister duo and the company is known as Lizzie Fortunato they usually really have some STUNNING costume jewelery pieces – seriously breathtaking…and for the quantity of labour and detail reasonably priced too!
So here’s a taste of what went down yesterday…I do know you may be dying to see more!
