Today I was doing hair and makeup for a student of the Melbourne institute of fashion. For something a little different, I’m going to show you a behind the scenes look at my day.
I travelled very light today as it was a single hair and makeup look and I only ever pack the tools I need.
The makeup look was meant to be very clean and glamorous with a bold lip and the hair was a loose wave with a nod to old Hollywood.
I curled all the hair with a wide barrelled tong and pinned up the curls while they were warm to keep the curls in place and then started on the makeup.
While we were shooting in a bar on Brunswick st, the preparation was done at the Melbourne fashion institute. The view was amazing and i was very grateful to have good natural light to use for once.
Then we travelled to the shoot location. My client had booked out the lovely polly cocktail bar on Brunswick st. After setting up the equipment, it was Showtime.
Throughout the course of a shoot, there’s lots of fiddling involved to touch up the clothing and makeup for each look and to make sure it looks fresh.
Today was a lot of fun and I’ll be looking forward to seeing the finished product soon. Hope you guys enjoyed my little photo diary of today’s hard work.
