About the Make-up Artistry

The make-up design looks were inspired by international VOGUE magazine’s cover images of retro hair styling & contemporary eye make-up design, as instructed in the fashion designers’ storyboard they put together.

Every fashion shoot has its own story, and a theme that the designer wants to express to the audience. A great portfolio is never just about the designer’s wowing piece, nor just the model’s look, photographer’s skills, make-up artistry or the hair styling – it’s a story of all creative talents’ work together as ONE piece.

Some of the key M·A·C make-up products I used for this shoot:

1. Complete Comfort Crème

To instantly rehydrate the face and provide high-comfort wear with its calming plant-and marine-based formula.

2. Prep & Prime Skin

Silicon-based make-up primer for the face. Evens out skin texture & redness right before the foundation application.

3. M·A·C PRO Full Coverage Foundation “White”

Emollient-based foundation formulated to provide opaque coverage on the face to achieve the very “pale skin” look with other light shades, with using #109 Small Contour Brush. Great for beauty/fashion photography.

4. Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

This colorless finishing powder was used to set the full coverage foundation, and also to reduce shine while optically minimizing the look of lines & imperfections.

5. M·A·C PRO Chromaline “Black Black”

This dark black waterproof gel/cream liner was used with #209 Eye Liner Brush to create that precise, wowing-effect graphic on the eye, as well as the eye liner at top & bottom of the eyes.

6. M·A·CPRO Chromaline “Pure White”

This vibrantly white gel/cream liner was used with an eye shadow brush for the detailing of the eye make-up… totally opaque!

7. #209 Eye Liner Brush

An extra-fine tipped synthetic fibre brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke with which to line the eyes. Use with liquid or cream products.

8. #109 Small Contour Brush

Used on the face to apply the cream foundation in a circular motion. Of soft, natural fibres.

9. M·A·CPRO Lip Erase Lip Balm “Pale”

A flesh-toned balm that visually neutralizes and erases natural colour from the lip before applying lipstick colours.

10. Lipstick “Costa Chic”

Frosty coral-pink

The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s Classic Revisited

16 Jul

The Little Black Jacket by CHANEL

·

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is preparing for the launch of his upcoming book, The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited (co-authored by Carine Roitfeld) with exhibitions in Tokyo, New York City, Taipei, and Hong Kong, featuring the iconic Chanel little black jacket photographed on numerous celebrities.

The little black jacket has long been an iconic wardrobe pieces in the fashion world and Lagerfeld’s show features his photographs of various famous celebrities — including Yoko Ono, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lady Gaga — all wearing Chanel’s little black jacket.

·

·

I had the opportunity to attend CHANEL’s “Little Back Jacket” photography exhibition by Karl Lagerfeld when I was in a trip to my hometown Taipei, TAIWAN in June 2012. I actually had to go to the exhibition twice, and the reason for that was because the first time when I was there (on a Sunday afternoon), I got so overwhelmed with the long, long, long line ups at the venue in Taipei’s Songshan Cultural & Creative Park (松山文化創意園區), it was so crazy… the lineup was formed from the 2nd floor down to the first floor, all the way across two hallways!

You cannot believe how long the line up was just to get into the exhibition. My friends and I decided to go see other exhibitions at the venue instead. “Taiwan Design Museum” was featuring conceptual designs by contemporary designers in Taiwan. You bet the designs were amazing, anyone can be fascinated by the designers’ displayed work with their creativity and originality!

·

·

Of course, being a fashion photography lover & a make-up artist, I just had to go there again hoping that I can get in without the line ups. So I chose to visit the event again on an early Monday when it first open at 11:00AM., and yes, I was able to get in smoothly without waiting.

CHANEL: The Little Black Jacket book

·

From the information on the internet, this event started in Tokyo (Japan) earlier in March 2012,  moved to New York City, and Taipei (TAIWAN) is the third location showing; it’s currently in its next stop in Hong Kong (CHINA)…. as your have noticed, CHANEL is really loving to have the exhibition in Asian countries, huh? (for an obvious reason….) I highly doubt it will ever make it to Vancouver, Canada though…

·

·

I later read the press about their event opening night in Taipei, Chanel invited Gaspard Ulliel – actor & ambassador of the Chanel Men’s Blue Perfume, and famous Taiwanese actress & singer Vivian Hsu (徐若瑄) as their featured VIP guests wearing Chanel’s dress, along with other local Taiwanese celebrities. Vivian Hsu is a very pretty lady, and I had the pleasure of meeting her in person years ago. She is very sweet in personality, and from a make-up artist’s point of view, her skin is beautiful… I honestly think she wasn’t wearing make-up when I met her at a private dinner function, but her skin was so healthy and glow-y!

·

·

The event was great. Chanel had experts at the event explaining to attendees on the showcasing photos, and each attendee was able to receive a poster size of a chosen photo taken by Karl Lagerfeld as their gift.

Here are some images that I took at the event, and I hope you all enjoy the images, and be inspired by the master’s fashion photography work. If you check out the photos closely, you can definitely name a few of them because they are mostly popular celebrities of our time. It’s so great being a icon fashion designer and to be working with the real A-list celebrities, eh? 🙂

Asian Beauty Make-up (Miss Asia 亞洲小姐 2010)

5 Aug

Soft & Natural Asian Beauty Make-up

·

Hello Everyone! Welcome to my first Tommy Beauty Pro blog posting! I am a freelance make-up artist/professional, and I have been doing it since 2000. I was born in Taiwan and my post-secondary (college and universiry) education was done in North Americas.

In 2010, I accepted the role as the Key Make-up Artist for the first ever Miss Asia Beauty Pageant in Vancouver, BC. Canada (with Asia TV of Hong Kong as the main organizer). I recruited, traied and led a team of talented make-up artists working with me in this pageant of 2-month ongoing events, where our team provided make-up artistry on the beautiful 12 delegates. They are all lovely Asian girls from Vancouver with different ethnic background: China, Taiwan, and Korea.

Tommy Beauty Pro Team did the make-up for Miss Asia (2010) in varies of events: Meet & Greet, Profile & Poster Photoshoots, Video Shoot, Press Conference, Talent Show, Beauty Make-up 101 Seminar, Fashion Show with Vancouver designer JC Studio, Photography Contest with Mercedes-Benz at Richmond Auto Mall, and the Final Event at RiverRock Casino/Resort Theatre.

After a series of events, and the winner goes to Miss Sasah He, who represented Miss Asia (Vancouver) to compete in the Grand Final Event in Hong Kong (China). Before she took off to Hong Hong, I did a photoshoot with Sasha of this beauty make-up look.

The make-up look for Sasha is very soft & pretty. To create a very soft & natural make-up look is not as easy as it seems. It requires minimal make-up, but at the same time, it needs to be blended very well. It must show skin texture/clarity with right foundation shade, and have soft colour intensity (enough to be shown on camera working with the lighting). Overall, this make-up is to achieve a soft, well-balanced look without a strong feature that over emphasize a feature.

  • Skincare – Lightful Softening Lotion, Lightful Essence, Lightful Moisture Creme

  • Eyes – Eye Paint Bare Canvas, Pigment in Naked Dark, Eye Shadows in Woodwinked + Naked Lunch + Texture, Fludielin Eyeliner in Dipdown, Lingering Eye Brows,  Clear Brow Set, False Lash #4
