Make Up Monday | Kody Diane Photography
How many times have we seen a perfectly styled You Tuber post their latest fabulous make up look that is heavy on the lipstick, contouring and extra winged liner? They always look oh so fabulous and oh so much more done up than I’ve ever dreamed of being. The Kardashians (for example) look incredible in their contour and lip kits, for reals! Most of my clients relate much more to Alicia Keys circa no make up on The Voice days. There’s such a wide range of make up styles, techniques and looks, but it seems like a lot of make up artists themselves have a tendency to go heavy on the make up, which just doesn’t suite every girl.
This is where I shamelessly plug my oh so fabulous make up artist Dannie! Dannie is the QUEEN of making you look exactly how you want look. A lot of my clients come to their style consult wearing make up MAYBE once a week. The idea of bold lips, lashes, brows you name it is just overwhelming and frankly not a representation of them. On the other hand some girls come in wanting the full movie star glammed up moment. Dannie and I have a blast getting to know our clients, and making the images that they have dreamed of. Some girls want to go full glam and live up the full model experience for the day. Others want to take their portrait look one step above their usual special occasion look. We have so much fun changing it up every session and creating a different set of looks and images every day.
It’s a true testament to the talent of a make up artist when they can put aside the looks they prefer or the temptation to use all the make up and give clients the exact look they want. Scroll below for some examples of how Dannie can change it up from client to client and even look to look for each session!
