Hello Everyone! Today I am so excited to share the details of an amazing shoot I was privileged to plan and help style with the amazing Erika Reiner Photography and Model, Wendy Biagioni. It turned out to be one for the memory books! Makeup for me has always been a journey of self expression and learning professional techniques to take my career to the next level and this shoot did ALL that and more! I took on my first under water photo shoot and well, not to brag, killed it!
A lot of makeup artistry is research. Research for the look, the style and the technique. This shoot required a whole new skill set from me, under water, full WATER PROOF makeup! And well as a Beauty Makeup Artist I was ready take on the challenge. It all started with a phone call from a photographer who happened to find me on Instagram ( Can I just say how grateful I am for social media! ) we talked and hit off for almost an hour, wow hello meet cute! Then began the planning to find the perfect products to tackle this challenge.
I’m used to using the amazing and industry standard TEMPTU airbrush makeup. So for this challenge due to some research I decided to give their new formula a try called Temptu Hydra lock Perfecta Base Airbrush Foundation. I have always been a big fan of Temptu Airbrush makeup in the SB ( silicon base) formula but this new stuff from TEMPTU is the bomb! When Wendy came out of the water looking perfect, I got goosebumps and it took everything in me to not say as loud as I could, “YES I DID IT!!!!!!” As a makeup artist I am constantly critiquing myself and wanting to grow. More work comes from more practice and more knowledge and most importantly more experience. Needless to say this shoot did just that and more. Soooooo all that to say this shoot was the stuff dreams are made of and honestly there is WAY more where this came from…. Now go enjoy these amazing photos captured by the amazing Erika Reiner Photography.
