Portrait shoot with professional MUA | Sugarskull design
I was commissioned to do a portrait shoot, that broke from the norm with a bit of a twist. A husband hired a professional make up artist (MUA), to create a sugar skull design to make up his spanish wife in the style of 'del dia de Los muertos' (Day of the Dead). The MUA was Sophie Battersby and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
The whole make-up and hair process took around 3 hours to complete and the end results were absolutely fantastic, I captured the whole process to tell the story and at the end took portrait images.
The husband then selected one of the images to be tattooed onto his chest!
So let's see the images that tell the story, firstly the make-up:
Nice...., now let's move onto the hair:
Lastly, a few with hair & make-up completed for full effect:
I'm sure you'll agree from the final results that Sophie has some mad skills...
I look forward to working with her again at some point in the near future!
