Model Portfolio Shoot with Ruth Ryan Photography

Sunday 3rd July,  we had the pleasure of doing makeup and hairstyling for Katrina for her Model Portfolio Shoot with the fabulous Ruth Ryan Photography.  It was also Katrina’s 14th Birthday.  Katrina is an upcoming Musical Theatre Actress and also has a strong passion for Modelling,  which clearly showed in the images captured throughout the afternoon.

Katrina wanted to add a little sparkle to her makeup look,  so we added some beautiful crystal diamontes to create this,  wanting to keep her makeup looking age appropriate also.

Brisbane city was our backdrop for this particular shoot,  adding a variety of locations for Ruth to work her magic through the lense.  A very successful afternoon was had as you can see in the images below.

Airbrush makeup artist

Airbrush makeup artists use an air compressor to spray a  fine mist of color that gently covers the skin giving the appearance of a flawless complexion.  Spraying microdots of makeup that lay on the surface of the face looks more natural than traditional makeup because the airbrush makeup artist doesn’t rub the skin and doesn’t exaggerate the pores.  The process is more hygenic, and allows the airbrush makeup artist to conceal  better while enabling your skin to breathe.

Traditional foundations can look obvious, caked on or thick, and always feel like you are wearing makeup. The Airbrush makeup artist creates a light seamless veil of colour over the skin, creating the illusion of a perfect face, because it is lightly misted on and allows your true skin tone to shine through without masking your face in heavy foundations.

The Airbrush makeup artist has the ability to mix foundation colours for individual custom blends, resulting in a more natural look that covers skins imperfections effortlessly.

By choosing Michelle West Airbrush makeup artist,  you are guaranteed that our foundations are oil free, high definition and hypo-allergenic.  Michelle has been working as an Airbrush makeup artist for over 7 years,  and has extensive experience in Bridal Makeup, Fashion Makeup and Editorial Makeup.  Our team member Skye is also an Airbrush makeup artist, using the same quality products as Michelle to maintain consistency.Airbrush Makeup Artist

Benefits of Airbrush Makeup

With Airbrush Makeup, the foundation goes on in fine microdots that mimic the technology used in Digital technology.  The tiny dots lay on the surface of the face very smoothly.  Airbrush Makeup is also germ free and sanitary as it goes straight from the bottle to the airbrush and sprayed directly to the skin. Airbrush makeup lasts 12 to 24 hours.  The bottom line of an airbrush makeup session is the finished result, a flawless, stunning and beautiful face!
