To understand why makeup requires different skills, it is important to consider how lasting images are created on different media. The image, seen by the naked eye, impacts on the retina and is transmitted to the brain. To develop a photograph, the image is transferred to film where it is created chemically, whereas videos record images electronically on magnetic tape. The trained makeup artist understands these differences and uses the tools of their trade accordingly to compensate for these differences.
The Camera's Distortions because the camera only records a two-dimensional, flat image whereas the naked eye sees a three-dimensional image, it exaggerates facial flaws: a wide, full face appears wider, close-set or deep-set eyes photograph closer-set or deeper-set, and sometimes these types of eyes can photograph very small when a person smiles.
The Solution Very few people, except professional models, are blessed with bone structure which creates natural planes on the face. As the camera flattens the face even more, the professional makeup artist, through the skillful use of highlighting, contouring and placement of color, creates the illusion of definitive bone structure. The makeup artist strives to create large, upturned eyes, high cheekbones, a strong jaw line and a symmetrical mouth.This blog post isn’t necessarily limited to bridal make-up but is more my top pick of easy products that give a pretty look that’s easy to create in a matter of minutes and suitable for a day at the beach.
1. Tinted moisturiser or BB cream: These are perfect for evening out the skin tone without the need for heavier foundation. One of my favourites is Laura Mercier, whichever one you choose just make sure it has SPF in it too.
2. Cream eyeshadow: I couldn’t live without Mac paint pots! I apply it with a flatish brush and blend it out with a fluffy brush but you could even apply them with your finger and they’re water resistant too.
3. Waterproof mascara go to two coats for big lashes.
4. Cream blusher: For a flush of natural colour, apply this with fingers onto apples of the cheeks and pat into the skin.
5. Sheer lipstick or stain: this season I’m using Dior Addict a lot (as you can see in my last post!) I love that it gives great colour but the texture is quite sheer and soft.
We are firm believers that you can change up your look with just one simple tweak. Today we’re turning to eye liner for a little makeover inspiration. Check out what a simple flick of the pencil (or liner brush) can do, as modeled on some of our favorite Hollywood beauties.
If you want to go a little bolder without thickening the line, follow Brandy’s lead by outlining the entire eye, even going as far as the inner corners. This small difference really highlights the shape of the eye.
When you’re wearing a bold lip, like Gwen Stefani’s signature red, the eyes shouldn’t be the focus. But skipping eye liner entirely can make your face look a little naked. Instead, apply liner along the top lash line and finish with a smudge of eye shadow on the lower lash line to add definition.
We love the cat eye that Naya Rivera modeled above. Unlike other versions, this was done using a powder liner so it’s less bold and looks more natural, elongating the lashes.
Colored eye liner is daring, but when applied with a light touch, the look becomes easier to pull off. Emma Stone’s shimmery blue liner works because of its clean, not-too-smoky shape.
Shimmer applied at the inner corner of the eye has become a staple. So why not dab shimmer along the entire bottom lash line like Carly Rae Jepsen did at the American Music Awards? The gold brightened the entire eye and added interest to an otherwise neutral makeup look.
One of the many things I love about working with makeup is its transformative power; its ability to completely change a face -- or body in some cases -- whether the results are glamorous or grotesque. Whilst makeup is most often used to accentuate a woman's natural beauty or make an artistic, colorful statement, it can also be used to portray a completely different persona. Contemporary artist Cindy Sherman is a woman who has manipulated makeup to her advantage in her work. Her retrospective, on view at New York's MoMA through 2012, features a staggering array of images Sherman created by dressing as women of every age and from every conceivable era, along with the occasional man or otherworldly creature. The images she has created with makeup and a little help from costumes, wigs, lighting and photo effects are often disturbing but always transfixing.
One of the most powerful methods of transforming a face is to manipulate the brows. By emphasizing or covering and then redefining a brow we can create looks that range from ethereal to sinister. Sherman used this technique to great effect, employing full brows to signal youth and an exaggerated unibrow to create a threatening countenance in her clown series. In reality, full brows are staging a serious comeback for spring/summer 2012, and Sherman's portraits are evidence that a strong, well-tended brow is a powerful marker of youth.
Contouring is another makeup artist tool that played a starring role in Sherman's work. While I've long lauded contouring as the secret to runway-worthy bone structure, it can also be used for less flattering purposes. Sherman employed extreme contouring in her series of society women, giving them the appearance of haggard and world-weary victims of heavily applied makeup doing more harm than good. In one especially arresting image there appears to be two women, one about 20 years older than the other. Both are actually Sherman, but the use of dark colors on the eyes and lips and heavy contouring easily add two decades. Talk about disturbing! Note to (your) self: keep your contours strategically placed and most importantly well-blended to keep your look fresh and flattering. I created my Ultimate Contour Palette to take the guesswork out of finding the right shades and textures for a flawless finish.
In Sherman's most recent portraits she went barefaced, using digital manipulation to change her look. It's astounding just how much a tweak of the nose or virtual plumping of the lips can change your whole appearance. Of course in real life, makeup remains the most foolproof and fastest way to alter your look. Some key takeaways from Sherman's portraits: the art of concealment around the eyes is an eternal refresher, use contouring for good and not evil, and and above all else, avoid harsh lines around the lips and eyes they add decades in an instant.
