The Marrakech Assignment

For this assignment the school asked me to work around the Marrakech theme, from minute number one I new I want to go simple and without bids, or crystals as this look would required for the school, Ill reserve that for one of my selfportraits so, I choose a more quietlysophisticated city night look for Kim my model who came into action to help me for that day, she was fresh, and full of energy and strong faces at the moment of pose for the photographer but she is a sweet sweet girl in person. I left the bling bling for the spectacular handmade neclace by Cake & Troubles. from italy.

And One day I Became a Makeup artist.

This is the look I prepared for my  make-up graduation last year in May. Sanne my dear friend in Amsterdam (also my model many other times) was my support and she helps me to be the second highest grade of my class.

My choice of theme was "Mother Nature Wears Spring". I think in make-up I feel more comfortable into the fantasy editorial side, I like to create back grounds and stories, tales and scenes a mixing of old master painters with the technology of the camera and striking makeup with out of this world props is what I enjoy the most, hopefully when I finish this second year school I will be able to create my own world at home.
