Today's "Throwback Thursday" took place this past July I had the pleasure in being the key makeup artist for the Cintas 2015-2016 Fall Sourcebook. An industrial unform company catalog that comes out once a year. This was actually my second year working on set for these shoots, but my first year working as the key makeup artist. It was a busy four day shoot that had taken place at various locations, all to capture the essence of what the company focuses on... corporate identity branding in uniforms.
The makeup for photo shoots such as this is clean, not over the top, matte and realistically natural. For both men and women. Makeup for men is quite simple and exists of covering blemishes, redness, scars, etc with light foundation and concealer. Followed by an application of face powder to tone down the shine, to keep from appearing oily on camera. Makeup for women is just as similar but of course a little bit of color on the cheeks, eyes and lips.
