I have been working with female fitness and body building competitors for a number of years now, styling hair and makeup for competitions they work very hard to compete in. The hair and makeup for these competitions is glamorous stage makeup, which to put it simply, is a hell of a lot of makeup verging on pageant queen cake face which looks great on stage but intimidating in person. It was interesting to have a change of scenery when working with WBFF competitor, Miss Dee, on a more natural and slightly more “normal” fitness photo shoot.
Myself and fellow Studio Beauty Team member, Mika Morris, styled hair and makeup for Miss Dee while photographer, Tyler Chandler, set up his lighting ready to shoot. We styled two hair and makeup looks for this photo shoot; natural beauty and glamorous. I love how the images turned out, particularly the natural shot you see first in this blog.
