On our model above Selah, I used a Joe Blasco Ultrabase™. Called Golden Tan 1. This is were I studied Makeup application and Selah Our model was having some HD quality photographs taken. I will recommend to use a very small amount for your application, you can use a spatula and apply some to a silver dish and mix your concealer into the formula. Apply slowly and always use a brush for optimum coverage, If you apply too much take a dry sponge to the models face and slowly take off what is unnecessary. The product will appear dewy so apply your setting powder afterwards. And here you go a good application. The Joe Blasco products will go along way. Less is best with this product, until you get the hang of it.

Depending on the photo-shoot, your hair and make-up can range from matte and flat, to colorful and volumed. You want to deliver the best results as a model, and that includes knowing what is right and what is wrong for each type of photo shoot. As a model this will depend on the photo-shoot if it is a glamour set in a studio or a simple outdoor photo-shoot. For a bikini model, the best approach to your hair and make-up is to keep your look clean, fresh and simple if the shoot is outside.Use as much natural colors as possible for your eye-shadows and cheeks. You want to look sexy yet natural as a swimsuit model, so your make-up should be minimized. You want the consumer to look at the swim suit. You should use only a little of foundation, think fresh and light. Remember, you could be getting wet as a bikini model, so do not use so much that your make-up will run. For your blush I like to use soft shades of pink and browns. I don’t want the cheek color to be dominate in the photo-shoot.
For your eye shadow, you should pick natural colors that compliments your eyes, steering away from the Blue and Smokey Grays. Although color is good, it can be problematic during a bikini shoot. Usually the purpose of a bikini shoot is to sell the bikini. You want the consumer to look at how great your body looks in the bikini and how great your overall look is. You do not want them just to concentrate on your eyes; it takes away attention from your body and the swimsuit. Keep the hair straight and natural, it is better to start that way so you can go ahead and curl the hair for wardrobe changes. If you start out with beach waves then you have to straighten the waves out with a flat iron. Which will damage your hair, so it is best to start out with the waving process first. Less heat on the hair the better. Make sure you ask the photographer to take a few still photographs to grade you makeup before the shoot starts.
What a wonderful product too work with for in salon makeup or on location photo-shoots. I give this product a thumbs up. A pen-style highlighter that efficiently brings a soft, sheer wash of color to the skin. With its precision application, adds radiance just where you want it. Goes on smoothly for cushion-soft wear. Use over makeup for highlights or touch-ups, or under makeup to brighten and prime.
I also love the consistency of the product, very light and creamy and a little touch of the product goes a long way. My favorite highlighter. Works great for contouring also! We at the Joseph Kellner Salon highly recommend this in your makeup kit!
DOU makes great products to use for Photo-shoots, and they are a reliable product to use. But I will say watch out for the dark glue (Adhesive) it comes out grey and is hard to blend with the makeup. DUO® Striplash Adhesive is the world’s best selling lash adhesive and has been a favorite of professional makeup artists for decades. This latex-based formula was created for all-day wear with strip lashes and can also be used to apply individual lashes, lasting several hours. The product does not blend well with dark eyeliners. I would recommend you use the clear adhesive. The Joseph Kellner will still be using DOU products only the clear adhesive for Model Photo-Shoots.
The same liquid liner you know and love, now in sleek, new packaging, is the perfect tool for the most precise, dramatic eye looks. This precision liner glides on smoothly for flawless definition and intense color. A grab-and-go makeup essential. Pretty good product to work with, Thick, yet totally manageable.Smooth application, a precise line and no smudges. The liner lasted all day without flaking when I was working with it! The eyeliner dispenses just the right amount of liquid onto the brush to give eyes that bold look without smudging. It’s definitely better than drugstore brand liquid liner and comparable to salon quality. Must have makeup product.
