I had the pleasure to take some photos of well known Dublin make-up artist Chloe Boucher at work a few weeks ago. She was giving a masterclass for Young Blood Cosmetics and Glo Beauty Salon in The Harlequin Hotel in Castlebar.
The challenge with this particular photoshoot was to ensure that the colour, texture and tones of the makeup were captured faithfully. I was lucky enough to find a well-lit corridor at the masterclass location. I also used a flashgun on the camera but bounced it off the nearby walls. This ensured that any areas on the model that was in shadow, like the eyes were lit up. This showed off the work of the MUA and the product to it’s best.
It was great to see what professional MUA’s working with some quality cosmetics can produce, and all in all, it was a most enjoyable shoot.
The event was very well run and Aishling and the crew at Glo Beauty Salon pulled out all the stops to ensure everyone had a great and informative time. The cupcakes were to die for! 🙂
Here are a few of the images from that event.
