HOW TO SET UP A HOME MAKEUP STUDIO
Today on Glossible I am doing 2 things. I am going to show you this super BAD ASS lighting set up that me and my friend Vivian Baker set up...AND we are going to invite you to our pajama party.
Back in December Vivian came and stayed at my house for a few days and we had so much fun. We call this #pajamaparty. We're not too old, right?
Living in Chicago, lighting has ALWAYS been a challenge for me. Hell, let's be honest, lighting has ALWAYS been a challenge for makeup artists. Until now.
THE STORY OF THE MAKEUP LIGHT
Vivian has always been a seeker of the light and has always credited it as the tool to doing her best work...(and if you have ever watched her paint any of her famous A-listers, you would see that divine light itself flows from her hands as she paints). The other beautiful factor is that her sweet husband Michael made it for her for her movie trailers.... and now she is sharing it with the world. It's the real respect for what we do as artists and not only is the light itself amazing, the story behind it is even more sweet. Don't you think?
Poor light, no space and no real actual place to work. I get questions all the time too on how to do lighting for Youtube tutorial videos. And guess what? Vivian and I decided this post was for you.
HOW TO SET UP YOUR MAKEUP LIGHT STUDIO
WHAT YOU NEED
Find a sturdy table and set up your Makeup Light Vanity on some really sexy books. Presentation is everything!
Lay out all your supplies.
Put on your gooseneck on the back of your light. (Did you know you can also use the light just like this as well?)
Using your Makeup Light Key Light Master Kit, clamp the "Stand Clamp Mount" to the back of the vanity doors making sure all is secure....
Make sure you fit the hole of the "Stand Clamp Mount" on the back of the door to give it extra support.
Attach the gooseneck with the light panel to the "Stand Clamp Mount" and adjust as needed. Repeat on the other side...
Then your set-up will look like this! Plug it all in and you're ready for your pajama party, uh, I mean clients...
We like to use the white paper towels to keep the color nice, white & crisp so there is no overbleed of color on the skin.
THE FINISHED SET UP!
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
BEHIND THE SCENES:
LET THE PAJAMA PARTY BEGIN...
