ARTIST SHOWCASE: MODERN HOLLYWOOD LOOK BY SHANNON JENNINGS
Today we are recognizing the beautiful work from our Glossible Facebook Group friend Shannon Jennings! For someone to only be in the makeup world for 3 short years, I am going to give her a huge shout out to these looks. She rocked it! LOVE LOVE!
I absolutely LOVED that the skin still looks like skin...not the over plastic looks of Instagram and YouTube. This is real.
The balance and beauty that Shannon captured is if classic Old Hollywood look made a baby with modern day bronzy skin. Simply delicious. I see this being a huge Oscar Red Carpet Makeup look. Don't you?
Read what Shannon used to get the look of her beautiful photoshoot.....Leave a comment on the blog if you love it. It will make her day! :)
AUSTRALIAN HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST SHANNON JENNINGS
I slathered the model's shoulders in strobe cream, it catches the light beautifully and if you're doing a glossy skin makes the head match the body.
>>What were some of the challenges you faced?
With the hard lighting the photographer was using I really had to make sure the lashes were sitting upright or they cast a shadow down the models cheek. I kept having to run back in & prop them up.
>>What was your biggest fear with this shoot?
I was really afraid of not living up to this photographer's standard. She works with the best artists in my area, some of my idols. It was a lot of pressure. In the end Freya was very complimentary of my work which means the world to me & was very articulate about what she did & did not like which I really appreciated.
>>How long have you been a makeup artist?
3 and a half years. I'm still a baby makeup artist.
>>What would you have done differently?
Spent a bit longer on the hair, I would have liked to have seen a more defined wave.
