Working with a makeup artist multiple times

If you think working with a makeup artist once is sufficient, you are most likely wrong.  There are very few occasions when working with the right artist once without a consultation is not too bad.  Preparing for weddings or even your own photo shoots should be fun, but it is very advisable to schedule a consultation prior to allowing them to work on their next blank canvas - your face.

People have various quirks. No one is perfectly symetrical. An artist can detect these issues and work to correct them. Good artists study their past works to see where they can improve. GG, an Orlando Makeup Artist, can attest to this. Some tricks to makeup are trial, error, and experimentation. Many people find their comfort zones with "safe" colors such as beiges and browns. GG has shown that comfort zones can be too drab and boring by using forest green to create a smokey look on model, Sharon Kaye.

To add depth and dimension, GG used the forest green color, because it is the same color that circles the iris and brings out the eyes. This method does not look sickly or heavy such as when using browns and blacks. Navy blue is also a great choice depending on eye color.
To book GG, please contact her via email.

Lime Crime contest!

Lime Crime Makeup is hosting a Valentine Day Themed contest on FaceBook.  According to their page, winners will receive a Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper, Lime Crime Lipstick of choice, & two of their eyeshadows (winner's choice). To enter, upload a photo to their FaceBook fan page.  Looks do not have to be with their products but must remind viewers of Valentines, and apparently, looks must be on the submitter's own face.  We are still waiting to receive word as to whether or not artists can have their talent submit their photos as well.  Deadline to upload will be Sunday, January 27, 2011, and a winner is to be selected the following day (01/28/2011).
Hopefully Orlando makeup artists and enthusiasts will enter the contest. Let us work together to try and get Orlando on the makeup trend map! It would be nice to get lines such as Lime Crime and Sugar Pill in Orlando.
