I’m really excited to have the opportunity to get behind the scenes of a few fashion and make-up photo shoots over the next few weeks, creating nails and nailart for the models. Having been on a zillion home and decor photo shoots with my sister (Editor in Chief of Style at Home Magazine), I have a feeling that fashion shoots may be a little different…
A little bit of the conversations happening within about 5 mins:
Photographer: “More hairspray. Less hairspray. Foundation on the bra straps. Foundation on her hands. Look less happy. Look more happy. I can’t work in these conditions, it’s too hot”.
Make-up Artist: “I did her hair 20 times already, I think it looks great. Foundation has been applied, I don’t want it too cakey. The makeup now looks too cakey. I want the makeup to be sultry so stop telling the model to be happy. Drink some water.”
Nail Artist (aka me): “I’ll just be over here if you need anything” (she says quietly sneaking photos on her iphone which is strictly prohibited on set…shhhh).
More to come when I receive the official photos from the photographer (who of course I will give full credit to), and I’m really excited to see how they turn out.
Next week, will be another photo shoot with some modern and 70s inspired nails and then it’s Toronto Fashion Week where I am thrilled to be a nail artist on the Essie team painting models for the Pink Tartan, Rudsak, David Dixon shows and more…..
Until next time,
