behind the scenes…the KISS principle

Have you ever wonder what the big fuss behind the scenes?

Make-up! I am not a big fan of putting make up neither I am an expert on that nor did I go to school to learn how to do it. I can place a veneer on one tooth for thirty minutes and Walla!


make up I used for pictorial

To apply makeup and look good in the picture is took me an hour for a simple make up. I always follow the KISS (keep it super simple) principles. Especially with ladies beyond fifty, a simple dark brown eye liner, mascara and a touch of lipstick will do in most of the regular days. Evening affair, i prefer to have a little boldness, a darker eye shadow and black eyeliner, mascara and a red lips. I like people to see their enhanced beauty not the make up.

Accessories…yes! To find earrings, necklace etc. that will go with the dress is also time-consuming, unless you have a bunch in your drawers to select with, otherwise improvise is the key! Mix and match will do! A simple top shirt with a little of scarf will do a trick.

Shoes yes! shoes will do great even though your pictorial is only half body, it will position your shoulder and straighten your back.

The interview is always fun! It’s interesting to note, ladies beyond fifty still discovering things for themselves, simple questions that sometimes you are surprise how to answer it because you haven’t thought about it yet. Sometimes you learn from the questions itself rather than the answer.Try to ask yourself  too, in this way, you will appreciate the beauty within, discover how you act and will react in certain questions.

The photo shoots…i love it! the pose, the glamour, the experience of being a part of art photography, how the lighting affects the outcome of the photos is interesting! It may seem simple but the “it’ factor is undeniable. To me, photography is an art of observation, anyone can take photos but the art of doing it, the art of  taking the angle and the outcome will speaks for itself.

I am always trilled to learn something new, this keeps me going and keep my age behind. ha ha ha its like “catch me if you can!”

Believe it or not, this is taking my stress out, I am doing something that both of my sons and their friends are enjoying too (hope so:-), keeping my fingers crossed). I also enjoy the company and the art of practicing make over  he he he its make up over not smile make over.

oh well! I am on my third interview, got to make an appointment for pictorial.

Remember..KISS… (keep it super simple)
