Week 4: Carnival Theme
For the carnival make up theme I choose to do a harlequin inspired make up. This one is mostly costume and just face make up, but the costume is homemade, so I spent most of the week fixing it up.
I replaced the background for this one with a carousel, it wasn’t to hard but needed some work here and there. An extra touch that i added was to lower the opacity of the blue sheer fabric around her arms and legs to make it semi see through in some places
My grade for the project: Not marked yet
For Aryn, he knew exactly what he was going to do for this theme weeks ago. He wanted to paint his friend Mike as a creepy/sketchy clown. He was thinking more dark carnival, and this was the one he was most looking forward to.

5 Projects in 5 Weeks
ok So in school (college) we just started a module for photography and I have 5 projects to complete in 5 weeks. one week per project. I’m in charge of make-up, photography, wardrobe, background, and photo editing. I have a week to do the project 4 hours for make up, wardrobe and photoshoot, then 1 week to submit ONE photo to be marked.
The themes for each week are:
week 1 starts today! I’ll post the photo when it’s complete!
Candy Girl Photoshoot
So Aryn and I were going to go snowboarding Saturday but I really wasn’t feeling it. I by chance got an email from some one needing a last min make up artist for an interesting photoshoot, so i choose to do that while Aryn went to the hill to tear it up.
I haven’t gotten all of the photos back yet but here is basically what i did.
Only thing I wanted from the shoot as payment was all the RAW photos taken. I mean before cropping, before, deleting repeat shots, and most of all BEFORE any photoshop
So far he’s only sent me a few shots, and some i can tell have been touched. I hope he does send me the raw photos as agreed. We’ll see.
So what do you think? It was kind of a rush job, and last min, I went in with no idea what i was doing and no plan.
New Make Up kits!
New Make Up kits!
These are the make up kits that Aryn and I got our first day of school.
Check it Out!
Aryn’s kit left, my kit right. His has all the same stuff that mine has on display. Only difference is that our cases are a little different.
Oh and the purple dots on mine are to mark mine as belonging to me. Aryn as blue ones on all his items.
And this is just to start. We’ll get more to add to them as the year goes on and we start new sections such as air brushing and Monster making.
First Day of School :3
So tonight was the first class of college, it went really well and we got our kick ass makeup kits that were included with tuition.
Stock photo, of the case, i’ll get some real pics soon.
Now picture that filled with make up and make up tools. :D
Again i’m taking a year long course for make-up and special effects make-up. 50 weeks, 5 days a week, 4hr class’s, 6pm - 10pm.
Most of the class was just going through everything in the kits, and also setting up a work station. Tomorrow we start color theory.
I’m glad our class is full of nice people, it’s a night class to everyone is a responsible adult, there are no 18 or 19 year olds who are fresh out of high school. So no stuck up bitches who think their shit don’t stink. Glad our teacher is really nice too.
The funny part of the night was the theatre class next door was practicing their singing. One of the acting students was singing “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley and we could hear him really well, some times over the teacher.
That’s right; our first class of college and we all got ‘Rick Rolled’… This is course going to be too much fun! lol :XD
