Make Up For Beauty Photography With Jordan Liberty

 In Creative Team, Photography

If you are looking for an amazing Makeup Artist who will be obsessing over capturing perfect makeup and skin in camera together with you, and leaving very little if anything at all for you to fix in post, know that it’s those MUAs who also shoot and retouch their work.

They know very well that less is more; they know not to correct the lip outline on the model’s face with their fingers, and they know that skin looks a million miles better with less product on it in beauty photography.

When I am shooting commercial work for cosmetics companies with my super talented colleague and friend Jordan Liberty, I never have to worry – he will make models’ skin look delicious, the lipstick will be applied with amazing precision, eye shadows and blush will be perfectly blended, and there will be nothing left for me to fix in post.

Well, if you are a Beauty, Celebrity, Editorial, Advertising or Portrait Photographer and want your Makeup Artists to learn how that’s done (so you don’t have to spend sleepless nights retouching and fixing their mistakes), or you want to learn it yourself – you’re in luck!  Jordan will be teaching his magic in June in Los Angeles.

Makeup artist and photographer Jordan Liberty will take our attendees through the process of designing, executing and photographing beauty makeup and then attendees will have the chance to participate in a hands on workshop and have their work shot by Jordan!

Our morning session will take attendees will learn the considerations for application and design, texture choices, lighting and background when creating beautiful makeup for photography.

In the afternoon, full-day participants will participate in a hands-on makeup workshop and photoshoot and will later receive a retouched image of their work. Attendees will work on each other as models or may bring a model to the workshop portion.

You can participate in just the morning session, or the full-day program. No matter what area of the industry you are working in – bridal, celebrity, editorial, advertising or any work that gets photographed – this unique program will give you the must know, and the must don’t, techniques and know how that you need to produce your most amazing work.
