About a year ago I teamed up with Kate Craft Photography to have a little fun and take advantage of the early snowfall we got in Duluth. Below is what we came up with: an ice queen/winter concept photo shoot.
I was recently asked to participate in a contest hosted by Lake Superior Weddings and Events Magazine between local hair stylists, makeup artists, and floral designers featuring models from the area. Below you will find a sneak peek of my contribution as well as the products I used to create the look.
Here are a few shots from a shoot I did with Mad Chicken Studio and Vain Salon last year. I was going for a 40’s concept style with a sexy modern nautical influence. Whether or not that was projected clearly this was a really casual fun shoot and with a model like Rachel it was impossible for it not to turn out beautifully. Shooting took place along Park Point in Duluth, Minnesota.
On June 8th I flew out to Chicago to attend The Makeup Show at the Bridgeport Art Center for the very first time. For those who are unfamiliar, The Makeup Show is a traveling beauty event featuring key note speakers, demos, exhibitors, and networking for those in the beauty industry. Basically, it’s a makeup artists dream come true with companies giving discounts on products and being able to get up close and personal with celebrity artists.
Last weekend I collaborated with Vain Salon and Mad Chicken Studio, some of my very favorite talented people in the business, on a creative photo shoot with Rachel as our astounding model. I had the concept of doing a very summer feeling makeup look featuring nautical inspired details. This is what I came up with and seeing as it has a prominent “red, white, and blue” color palette I thought no better day to post than the 4th of July, Independence Day. Below you will find all the products I used to achieve this nautical/patriotic makeup look.
