Make-up Touching-up on Laurie, the Make-over Guest

·

On July 8, 2011, I was invited to be on Breakfast Television of CityTV (Vancouver) as the make-up artist for Laurie McGee, the Make-over show’s contest winner. I had the pleasure to work with celebrity hair stylist Van Hong (Salon Blue) , my make-up artist team member Mei Chiu (BTV stationed make-up artist), Breakfast TV’s fabulous host team including the beautiful Dawn Chubai, as well as photographer / videographer Wayne Lam (Wayne’s World Studio). And special thanks to Wayne for taking the images & video taping the behind-the-scene footage.

When I arrived the TV station very early in the morning, the make-over team is already in the green room (aka. the make-up room). As Van was getting his make-up done by Mei Chiu for his TV appearance, I started working on Laurie’s face. Honestly, I think she is already a beautiful person, both inside out. But what made her the contest winner is her inspiring story. Please take a look at the behind-the-scene video footage of this make-over show episode, which include the interview of Laurie by the show co-host Dawn Chubai.

As for Laurie’s make-up, I chose to do a modern classic make-up look to go with her personality. Before the show, she told me her make-up style is stuck in the 80’s style, which may not be as suitable in this time. I did a bit of brow shaping prior to the taping, and gave a natural brow colour/shape to go with her new hair colouring. The eye shadows are mostly in the neutral, earthy tone colours with a bit of gold to compliment with her green/blue-ish colors, which is more of the focus of this make-up look. The lip color is a neutral-rose colour, rather than the hot pinks you find in the 80’s. As well, the check color is more blended, and not so much of the chisel contouring style.

Could you be the next make-over guest winner?
