Achieve Natural Looking Photoshoot Makeup Design

Location: Seda Hotel Centrio

The sis and I (Shaun and Paola Pilapil) had a photoshoot for Urban Life Mindanao Gold Star Daily and an interview last November. The link is below this write up.

My sister knows how to put on everyday light makeup but before the photoshoot, she had a hands-on crash course on how to put on makeup for photography.  She placed makeup on her face while I put on makeup as well and giving her instructions which makeup to use and how.


The results were a success! 

I have Dry/Normal Combination Skin Type and these were the makeup I used to create the look above for the evening photoshoot with indoor lamps and ambient light in Seda Hotel Centrio as our light sources:
Kryolan TV Paint Stick in ELO
Maxfactor Pan Cake Pressed Makeup Foundation Tone 19 Golden
MAC Studio Finish NC35
NYX Eyebrow Gel 03
Kryolan Eye Shadow Palette TV Brown, Sudan, Highlight (for eyes and contour)
Lancome Rose Fresque
MAC Captive
Nyx Abu Dhabi

Paola has Normal/Oily Combination Skin Type and these were the makeup I told her to use to create the look above for the same photoshoot:
Kryolan TV Paint Stick in ELO
Maxfactor Pan Cake Pressed Makeup Foundation Tone 19 Golden
Maybelline Matte Super Fresh 03 Natural
NYX Eyebrow Gel 03
Kryolan Eye Shadow Palette TV Brown, Sudan, Highlight (for eyes and contour)
Kryolan Sunlit (for cheeks)
Jordana Matte Goddess
Nyx Abu Dhabi

Brushes we used were:
Marionnaud Foundation Brush
Foundation Brush from Avon Red Travel Kit Brush Set
ELF Complexion Brush
ELF Powder Brush

Our director of photography was to be none other than ms Aicy Soriano.  For those who don't know yet, to Pao, she is a fellow from Miss Teen 2008 regionals and a very good friend like a sister.  To me, I know Aicy as an artist, a co-actor in our upcoming Regna Elena play, and a very good sister-in-theater.

TIP: It is a big plus during a photoshoot when the director of photography is in sync with the makeup artist. The makeup artist would work better when she knows what the lights used would be (natural, artificial, harsh, soft lights).

Actually, this was our very first formal photoshoot together.
