We’re loving this series of gorgeous face charts designed by recent Blanche Macdonald makeup grad Marian Mina. Watch them come to life!
Marian translates her designs onto herself. Stunning!
I spent the day at a creative photo shoot hanging out with a few of Blanche Macdonald’s most creative minds including Artistic Director, Photographer, Stylist and BMC Fashion Instructor Tyler Udall and Makeup Pro and BMC Instructor Jon Hennessey. Being a late 60’s/early 70’s-inspired photo shoot, it was awesome watching the collaboration and seeing how these pros put their twist on a decade we never lived or were too young to remember. We shot at the Waldorf Hotel, which is decked out in Teak wood, palm trees, random Tiki art, 1960’s wallpaper and shag carpet – a pretty perfect place for the shoot in a quirky sort of way.
Tyler was artistically inspired by the incredible American Photographer Stephen Shore and the constructed angular pieces of the late 60’s by Fashion Designer and legend, Pierre Cardin. When young Alicia arrived, he quickly adapted to her young and sweet appearance, keeping with the colour scheme and softness of textures explored. The concept transformed, in Tyler’s words, to “an early 70’s disgruntled pre-teen on holiday with her parents and not wanting to be there”, which you can totally imagine when you see these final shots!
One thing that I love about working here at Blanche is the constant stream of inspiring and creative sites, ideas and information flowing between all of us. Today, it was an exclusive for AnOther Mag – these incredible interactive and animated photos that just make us go “wow”. And hey – London-based BMC makeup grad Janeen Witherspoon, currently represented by Julian Watson Agency, did the makeup! Seriously beautiful.
OK, these screencaps don’t do the photos justice at all so click HERE!!
