Assisting at a shoot for Xposé – A students perspective

I am currently a student at The Make Up Crew and absolutely loving every minute. When my tutor Keira@themakeupbar asked me to assist her on a photo/TV shoot for Xposé I felt excited and nervous, and that’s an understatement!

Working on this shoot was an amazing opportunity. I watched as Keira who is unbelievably on top of her game, effortlessly transform the beautiful model into a sophisticated, classy lady with a modern twist.

Keira had been given a brief of what the client wanted and she executed it such a high standard. She created a metallic look, giving the model fresh dewy skin with an incredible contour and she paired this with a metallic smoked out eye. The makeup made both the outfits and jewellery pop. 

I watched in awe as Keira observed each shot to make sure the makeup and hair was on point at all times, which it was of course!

It was so interesting to see how each individual role was key in the creation of an amazing shoot. The stylist effortlessly matched outfits and guided model to stand, sit etc to show of product in the most flattering way.

Behind the scenes was such an interesting place to be, I learnt so much yesterday and am now excited to learn more. Makeup, when done right can have such a strong effect and is a really important element in a shoot so I feel so lucky to have such talented, genuinely nice people to learn from.

Thank you Keira for the amazing opportunity and for your kindness to me all day yesterday  ❤
