I've found these videos and wanted to share with Istock photographers shooting people who can't afford professional make-up artists yet.

You can show this source to your models and they will try this for better results smile

Many thanks anouchka!

Perhaps we could make this a make-up thread. I certainly need more information on what make-up is available, what works and how to make it work. I'm working with some aspiring make-up artists who are doing well, but I feel I should be able to offer them more guidence. Especially in terms of base solidity/composition and make-up ranges suited for photography.

Sample of our work:

Suggestions are welcome.

NAO (Never Accept Ordinary) cosmetics has some videos on their site with the recipes of how certain looks are acheived. I am supplying the main link because you have a choice of High/Low speed and Canadian/American English (?!) and French. If you need more information, or can't find something - feel free to site mail me and I'll be happy to help.


And Thanks Anouchka - that's a great link, especially for men!

Both are fantastic! Thanks for posting the links. It would be nice to have a forum section on make-up. Models are easy to find, but the MuAs are scarce and expensive.

I think the most important equipment you should invest in for makeup is a set of good brushes. Just like in painting, the tool will have an effect on the "paint" (makeup - whether wet or dry), and the better your brushes, the smoother the result (it's also more pleasant for the model if the brushes are soft!) Also, after applying the shadow/highlighter/blush I will use a clean, dry brush to blend - and a different brush to blend eyeshadow if I'm going for a more natural look. Make sure you can test brushes before buying (or get recommendations from friends) so you don't end up with a brush that sheds. Higher end department stores will let you return brushes, but discount stores usually won't unless there is an obvious defect. Some discount stores will occasionally carry decent sable brushes - make sure what you are purchasing is a natural hair (usually Sable.) The exception is for foundation - I like a feathered synthetic brush which will allow you to stroke for light coverage and dab for heavier coverage.


Second to decent brushes is a brush cleaner/conditioner. You can use a diluted Isopropyl Alchohol, but this will eventually take it's toll on the bristles - drying them out so they break. A mild shampoo can be used if you rinse well. For personal use, I clean my small brushes after every use, and my large brushes once a week. If I'm giving a makeup demo, all my brushes are cleaned before using them on anyone else and I carry a little spritzer of diluted alchohol in case I don't have enough brushes with me.


I hope this information helps to compliment the videos!
