"Makeup should be whatever makes a woman feel beautiful, be it all drastic and dramatic, or simple and elegant."
I love makeup of all styles, (my favorite would have to be that 1940's glamour...it's just so feminine and classic) yet I also love a challenge and new concepts.
I am very outgoing, reliable, flexible, and creative. I believe that art is a collaborative process, so I love sharing ideas, and working together on a project...after all makeup is only a factor of an overall image.
Makeup Themes I would love to explore:
Comic Books (I love them, and would love to do a shoot, replicating female heroines...)
Nancy Drew (using flashlights, and lots of contrast)
Burlesque - - (Think Pussycat Dolls, before pop music!)
Disney Princesses (Think Anne Lebowitz!)
Regarding TFP* ~ Please note the following requirements before inquiring:
To contribute in any type of trade arrangement, I ask for a minimum of at least two models per shoot . The models do not necessarily need to be in pictures together, but since I can normally only use a 1-2 photos from each shoot versatility and variety are essential.
From photographers I ask for a few things…pretty please? ☺ First off, I would sincerely appreciate a series of facial shots to display the makeup application on each model. While I absolutely can appreciate the detailed poses/full shots, to be a useful addition to my portfolio, I need images that can closely capture my work.
My two other conditions in exchange for trade is to receive high-resolution plus web images without watermarks. My long-term goal is to obtain agency representation and portfolios must be free and clear of all photographer watermarks. I can assure you these images will not be altered nor sold. If the photographer’s intention is to sell the images, I only ask that if the rights are sold to any type of publication, I receive named credit.
