12 Months of Make-UpMake-Up Number 3: MarchIn order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. - Coco Chanel
After the panelists weighed in for the next month, it was decided that March would be Vintage Victory Rolls
, and I got well under way to figure out my concept, plan my makeup and obviously hair, and strategize the shoot.
Since victory rolls are kind of self-explanatory, I didn't have to research much except for a few different ways to wrap them up based on my own hair length. In addition to that, I referenced some starlets from the 1940's to get an idea on how I should rock the make-up. I opted for a softer, simpler look since the hair would take center stage.
Once I had the look, I had to think of how I wanted to shoot it.
I decided to kill two shots with one session by creating my multiplicity
shot for AoSP challenge, and also a nice close-up glamour shot for this project. In both, I wanted to stick to a very vintage look all the way down to the processing.
I think it was a pretty good success.What is it all about?
Earlier in January, I polled a few friends about new project I wanted to start called #12monthsofmakeup
and what they thought. It was then that +Ralph Uy
added it might be fun to let a group of willing panelists (aka anyone who wanted to join in on the circle) choose and vote on the concept for the next month.
So, I asked for anyone interested to to make a comment stating their interest as well as ideas to go into the idea pool for February (as I had January already planned), and I received a few responses as well as ideas for February (and now March onward).
Now, I want to invite anyone publicly to join the group, if you wish, to share ideas and/or vote on the upcoming theme each month. All you have to do is say that you do, and you are added. Also, feel free to share ideas of makeups you wish to see me do.How it works:
The first of each month, I will share a list of concepts/themes for make up to the panelists circle to vote on.
There will be one full week to vote.
UPDATE: Since we have an abundance of ideas, we are now doing a fun voting death match so to speak. Certain themes go head to head until we reach a monthly winner!
After that week, the winning concept will be used in the month and the rest of the ideas go back into the pool for voting in the next month. During the winning concept/theme reveal, I will also ask for any new ideas.
At some point in the month, before the end, I will shoot the image and post it with the hashtag #12monthsofmakeup
publicly for everyone to see.
At that time, people will also have time to join the panel if they wish by doing exactly what I asked this month.
If it catches on, I may even throw out some exclusive hang-out invites to panelists to watch me work my magic!
If I end up with any other rules or processes, I will add as I go, but for now...
