NYC Skyline Photo Shoot by KatieAlves NYC Skyline Photo Shoot by KatieAlves
I did a photo shoot with Simon Hammond [link]
and I did the make-up for it! It was my first professional make-up job and I think it went amazingly! I'll put up some pictures that he did, but here is a simple picture I took to show the make-up!

It's the New York City skyline, with the water reflection on the eyelids!

Funny thing was, we used my bedroom as the set (not in this picture)! Apparently my millions of posters wasn't a waste of time!

Model: Eli
(it's not me for once! haha)

Colours, as always, are much brighter on my facebook and tumblr.

Now this looks interesting. Honestly I know nothing bout makeup (seeing as I'm a guy, all I know is that not all women know how to use makeup... but those that do know they know.)
This does seem to be a work of art in itself.
The detail in your artwork here is very nice, the colors look pleasant. The blues do bring out the eyes of your canvas so to speak.
This is a very interesting way of expressing oneself that I have not seen before, but I have to admit that I do like the creativity and the detail and hard work that has gone in to it.
Very nice and creative work.
Please keep it up :D
What do you think?

If you're going to use make-up, might as well be brave and bold. This was a good idea.

this really is amazing. although i think that you could've made the sunset fade a little instead of it just ending there, in the middle of her forehead....

In real life it did, but the camera took the faded colour away. It's a lot brighter and vibrate in real life!

Awesome idea, and I love the way the corners of the eyes were incorporated, but I have one suggestion for the future: the nose/forehead would have been improved had the pink been blended more. The sudden cut at the top of her nose is very awkward.

She has a bit longer of a face then me, so it really works with her, but yes, red hair WOULD look better with it! :nod:

Ah! That's crazy! I actually took the idea from my other city design [link] and the photographer wanted it to be NYC. He also didn't want to have to keep the models eyes closed the entire time, so I moved it up to the forehead and did the water on her eyes.

The photographer actually funny enough wanted a taxi on her lips, but we decided against it. Maybe he saw this photo and liked the way it looked XD!

I think you should`ve made more crisp eyeliner and lines though.

I meant eyeliner on your eye, not the drawing.
But you can do it with a thin brush :0

Absolutely gorgeous! I love how it covers the top half of the face so the eyes can be open, for more eye catching attention, and you still have a lot of room to play around!

The only thing about this is I would have put more make-up closer to the hairline, because the color of her skin bordering it kind of takes away from the world of the make-up.

:iconkatiealves:
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Indeed it does. In real life, the colour was a lot more gradual, so it blended into the skin, but here it's a lot more straight!
