I had to do an athletic shoot for a new clothing company. The gorgeous Apryl was my model… and really didn’t need much in the way of makeup. We kept things simple on her face… and doused her in a healthy amount of Prtty Peaushn to fake a glowing tan:
This is one of those ‘where have you been all my life’ products for my kit. Most ‘warm weather’ photo shoots require some kind of body making up. With the models in bikinis or little bits of clothing, there’s a lot of skin showing. And since I like as ‘little’ work done in post as possible, I’m always trying to make sure the models are made up to perfection, from head to toe.
Enter Prtty Peaushun:
It’s a light reflecting lotion, that also has a temporary ‘tightening’ effect on the skin. This is not to be confused with full on body makeup. It’s more of a non-transferable tinted moisturizer. The ‘non transferable’ part is what really got me. Nothing worse than bronzing down a model, only to have the bronzer rub onto the clothing or furniture or walls and what not.
I was sent the Prtty Peaushun lotions in Medium and Dark. I’m a combination of the two. Medium is a dead ringer for my skin tone, but nearly disappears when I put it on. Dark gives me more of a ‘bronzing’ effect. The combination of the two makes me ‘glow’ without looking like I’m actually wearing anything.
The interesting thing about the packaging is that it’s designed to let you squeeze out every last drop. In pictures, I was worried that the packaging would be too flimsy, but I’m happy to report that it’s pretty freakin’ sturdy.
Another plus… you get a LOT of product. I think the creators took into consideration that you’ll be using this on your whole body, so they adjusted accordingly. I’m always tickled by ‘body glow’ products that come in little tubes or bottles. Seriously, what am I supposed to do with that… just hit the hot spots?
