Beautifying The Bad Fairy

Being Key Make-up Artist for Ballet Theatre UK means that I get to design all the make-up for the Ballet Dancers. This was the first opportunity I'd had to do a creative shoot with Chaz Barnes, since working with him in a Photographic Studio in the Midlands. photo BadFairy_zps9e0d8ae5.jpg
I pre-made all of the pieces placed around the eyes. Using lace, gems, glitter and card. It was very effective with the strong green and black make-up used, to enhance the dancers beautiful eyes. I also gave Carabosse (The Bad Fairy) a strong dark lip to intensify her evilness. 

On this shoot I assigned Hillary Sullivan Make-up Artist as my assistant to help out with applying the designs.

This is what the final designs turned out like. photo Carabosseblog_zpsf015b30f.jpg
