I had the opportunity last week to do a photo shoot with Simon Lyn, an up and coming Composer in Vancouver. He needed some photos for his website and asked me to help. I jumped at the chance as I had never done make-up on a man before and I was honoured to have been asked and trusted to do this. I think he was a bit daunted too. To prep the skin Simon used an exfoliant and moisturiser designed for men's skin and we decided to leave a bit of stubble. I started with some concealer around the eyes, especially in the inner corners of the eye and underneath. I also concealed some blemishes. Next I used No7 Intelligent Foundation with a foundation brush all over the face, making sure I used downward strokes. I also used downward strokes through the beard. I then went in with a sponge wedge to even out the colour and mattify the skin. I finished with some powder on the t-zone and some Physician's Formula matt bronzer on the temples, cheek bones and jaw line. I defined the eyes with some black eye liner on the bottom lash line and some clear mascara to define the lashes and get rid of powder fall-out. Finally, a sweep of lip balm and he was ready for his photos. I was pretty pleased with my first attempt and I think he was too. What do you think? Next I would to do a male to female make-up transformation...but we'll see if he lets me? Talk soon. Click here for more photos in the Make-Over gallery.
