Local makeup artist, Cassandra Kaleikini explains what made the 2012 “Women Rocking The ‘Boat” photo shoot successful, and lays out four simple tips for future projects.
- Make the woman look natural. “When I do Women Rocking The Boat, I want them to be who they really are.”
- Talk them through it. “A lot of women in Steamboat wear little makeup, if they wear makeup at all, so they may be very hesitant towards me. I just explain to them that with pictures, they can look washed out and all that I am there to do is add some highlights or shadows and possibly a little lip color. Usually after talking with them, they are okay with it.”
- Make changes after snapping an initial picture. “Usually, I will do the makeup then we will do a test picture and see hothe lighting goes with the makeup. Most of the time, it’s good but sometimes you see something that you may want to hide or highlight.”
- Keep track of time. “When I do the shoots, I usually have about 15 minutes with each woman. Since there is no extensive makeup with these shoots, it is really easy to keep on time.
