I love doing editorial makeup for blogs and magazines. It’s a total buzz on the day of shooting. Often starting in the very early hours of the morning (it’s not uncommon to have a 4am start!) I get such a high knowing I am working with the very best in the industry. And I have had the most amazing opportunities to work on some gorgeous high profile ad campaigns, TV productions and Films. And of course, getting to create some utterly stunning makeup designs for some of the most beautiful women around the world. One of which is Sophie Waldron – one of the most sought–after model’s in the industry at the moment. Below is an image by photographer Matt Lee, with myself on wardrobe/lighting assistance and makeup! Sophie is such a professional and has such an inner strength she’s just incredible.
I often get asked what is the difference between bridal & editorial makeup? The difference really stems from what sort of conditions we will be shooting in, what look the photographer/ director/producer would like and what elements the model will be going through. So for example, on our ‘beach babe’ shoot I knew Sophie would be in full sun, possibly in the water and with a good deal of sand! So I knew she would physically need something with a high coverage and plenty of touch ups. Bridal makeup is completely different in this aspect – yes I know some clients need a little more coverage due to potential breakouts/excess oil etc but generally speaking bridal makeup is a lot softer and lighter.
What do I like to do most – bridal or editorial makeup? Bridal has, and will always be, my most favourite thing to do. There is nothing quite like the morning of a wedding to make you feel good about the human race! But I like to mix things up occasionally if nothing else but to strengthen my skills as a makeup artist.
