Setting the mood and counting down the cold winter days prior to my visit to the sandy shores and rainbow colours of Trinidad and Tobago. I am excited for Carnival 2016, the greatest show in the Caribbean! As a creative artist, my day starts at 3 am, this is not for the fainthearted. Masqueraders book their makeup application in advance starting at 3 am…this is serious business!
I am happy to share my work with behind the scenes making of “Z Carnival Faces 2016” and highlighting two amazing artists, renowned photographer and drummer, based in Switzerland Hannes Kirchhof not only is Hannes an amazing professional photographer who pays extreme attention to detail, he is undoubtedly the most entertaining, fun, charming and kind-hearted person I have ever met in this industry. Trust me, if you are having a bad day, Hannes surely knows how to make you smile and laugh. Our beautiful model Josephine at Time Model, perfectly complemented the carnival theme “glitz & glam”. Her natural exotic beauty, enchanting smile and energetic vibes perfectly matched the vibrant feathers and gems which embellished the costume. Also, thanks to Jeannine Gloor for providing amazing support, ensuring that all the necessary photography props and lighting were well coordinated. Take a look at the “making of” and the “final production”.
The makeup here represents beauty in modern and avant-garde forms. It`s a look that could easily be worn not only for carnival, but also at a party or other social events. A variety of strong pigments were on the eyes and heavy black cream liner to add depth giving a modern look. Her lips were kept in cool deep hues which complemented the model`s skin tone, not distracting from the vibrant colours of the costume and the captivating eye makeup.
