Every year, Tomo Tanaka, and Dreamshots Studios come together to create a festive photo shoot for the holidays. Last year during this time, I was off visiting with my family in England, so was unable to join in on the fun. I was glad to be a part of it this year =)
The theme this year was 50’s pin up, using the beautiful model and dancer, Kaitlin Chapple. I had coincidentally finished another dancing photo shoot with Kaitlin for halloween, and have worked with her on numerous occassions since the beginning of my career. By now, as I am sure you can imagine, I know her face, and how to compliment her features best using makeup.
I absolutely love how this look turned out. The hair is fill with pin curls, and has a classic, rolled fringe/bang, which is such a novelty hair style of the 50’s. I love how it looks with the colour and length of Katilin’s hair.
For the makeup, we of course did a bright red lip with a winged eye liner. When you think of pinup makeup, those are the two must-have elements. I of course added many special touches as well ;-P
Merry Christmas everyone!
