I got called back to work with photographer Ash Gupta on a couple new series…
He was specific that he was not interested in ‘small’ detail because he was shooting from a distance and through fabric, and that he wanted the girls’ eyes done in ‘greasepaint’ with nude lips. He was sure to emphasize coloring outside the lines (green and grey… NO BLACK)… and no harsh lines anywhere (with the exception of a sculpted cheek). So I did.
The smudging around the edges of her eyes is intentional… I dragged MUFE aqua cream from the place on her lids to outside of her eyes… and stippled it in with her foundation and highlighter.
I basically pulled all the makeup off… cleaned up the the skin, filed in the brows to make them appear heavier, and dropped Illamasqua Granduer lashes on the model. A peachy lip and I was done. Took me about 15 minutes.
I’m taking a closer look at proofs from the AGENDA cover shoot tomorrow… maybe I’ll get to see what these came out looking like as well.
