One Woman, Six Faces
Beauty Photography fascinates me. Maybe it is because am a retouching perfectionist and this is the one area in photography where professional retouching is really seen, or maybe it is because it brings out features on a model that would otherwise go unnoticed, whatever the case, it is a field I am exploring and I am far from done.
Today I want to focus on Professional Make up. This is a key factor in beauty photography. As soon as I embarked on the photography journey, I quickly learnt that to get impeccable photos, a creative team was necessary, specifically a great makeup artist. Lucky for me I didn’t have to search far nor wide. Muthoni Njoba http://www.muthoninjoba.com and I work well together, like ketchup and mustard we complement each other. She wanted to show how make up when applied in a variety of ways can change how you look or even perceived. As the conversation grew over some mimosas, we came up with the One Woman Six Faces campaign. A series of images, show casing how make up can transform one person and give them six different personas. A brilliant idea indeed.
Have a look at the images we developed. This project was also featured by Bella Naija – http://www.bellanaija.com/2014/12/17/bn-beauty-one-woman-6-faces-view-the-beautiful-shoot-by-clement-mwangi-muthoni-njoba/)
As Muthoni would put it, “The way a woman chooses to wear her Make-up tells us more about her than words could describe.
Choose a FACE that captures the LOOK that expresses who YOU are!”
