"...In the meantime I've attached some mood boards; one for makeup and one for fashion.
MAKEUP:Dark, glossy lips. Metallic red lips… Shimmery eyes (I have lots of pigments I can bring too) smokey eyes in various shades…STYLING:Furs, lots of Leather, Gold, Silver, Sequins, sparkle, Metallics, feathers,I'm thinking lots of 3/4 shots, so more focus on beauty, layering textures and fabrics. Although if Sade is really good and confident, we can also go for full length shots. "
I was going for dramatic, atmospheric and moody lighting.; With a use of high contrast. Although I had a strong idea of what I wanted, it was important for me to leave the stylist and makeup artist some creative freedom and room to interpret my mood board to suit their own styles. This was my first time working with a team and it was paramount that I learn to reliquich my tendency to be a control freak.
