La Ballerina Siciliana
Just like "Dutch Make up artist" Marjan van Duist from Piu Bella Visagie and I are very proud of these pictures.
This was our contibution to the "Make-up Awards 2016" and the theme for this year was "Make(-up) your move"
Marjan had this mindset of an Italian folklore dancer who danced the Tarantella in a field of flowers in Italy during sunset. But how on earth do you create such a feel in the Studio? Answer, create a backdrop with warm tones and use a very, very soft light. Together we worked on the color scheme and "the feel" of what the pictures would have to look like.
For this occasion i borrowed a "Hensel deep octa 120cm" from Goutier & Peters and since I don't own one (but secretely want one) I wanted to get the softest light as possible.
"It was not just a simple picture"
It took a lot of work, preparation, thinkwork, craftmanship, model had to be found, dress had to be made etc. etc.
All of the make-up (John van G) was created and mixed by hand, and Marjan had an idea of how the dress must look like and also not unimportant which type of model she wanted.
Together with the "Dutch Award winning" Designer Robine Blickman she travelled to Eveline Boertjes to measure her up for the dress and crafted this piece specially for her to fit.
We were on a mission but unfortunately for us, the Jury did not see it (next time better :-)
Fact is that we are super proud of what we have accomplished in over 3 months of preparation. And although we are not selected on the podium, the international magazine "Pump Mag." published it, in the printed and online version.
A work with a story!
