Through my straight face, you cannot see the stress that I have. Facing this gorgeous lady, with pale skin, pink lips and light eyebrows. Meet Geraldine, my first Albino Model.
Believe it or not, it is the first time that I meet/see an albino woman, let alone, do her makeup.
I start by asking her name, how old she is and if she has had her makeup done before.
By looking at her face, I know exactly what kind of makeup I want to makeup. Something soft, smooth. I don't want to hide what makes her unique. I don't want to give her a tan, change her eyebrow color, I just want people to notice how gorgeous she is.
I go for something simple, light brown eyebrows. Pink eyeshadow blended with beige. Overdrawn lips that fades towards the centre. No eyelashes. I like, the model likes, but the photographer wants something different.
I still have to respect the photographer's desire for something artistic. He wants a look people will remember, a look that is not common, without being all over the top.
This makeup is one of my favorite. I have to pains the lashes while doing her makeup. change her eyebrows color, without it looking wierd. Here's the result:
