Runway, a makeup store in Suriname representing between others Napoleon Perdis and Smashbox, hosted a Hollywoodstyle Makeover Makeup event during the 28, 29 and 30th of April 2011. A Celebrity Hollywood Makeup Artist did beauty makeovers for 3 days to numerous Runway clients, while on the 1st of May he led a Hollywood Makeup workshop for some of these clients.
Sharon Yang, from Runway for whom we photographed also the opening of her first RUNWAY store in 2009 and the opening of the new store in the Hermitage Mall in Paramaribo in 2010, asked bodyNsoul Photography to shoot Beauty images for her clients during the Makeover days and to deliver prints on location to those clients.
On the night before the event we also shot a few profesional models for the advertisement campaign but that is a subject for a next post.
bodyNsoul and Runway have colaborated more often in the last few months, among others we are both hired by Suriname's Mindstyle Magazine BLISS, for which we have done 2 covers and several fashion shoots.
Over the 3 days we set up a mini studio in Runway and while I took the beauty images, Guillo and Fausto were either doing quick touchups in postprocessing and printing or making "The Making Of..." shots. Please check a few more of the Making Of.. shots here For the GLAM shots we set up a mini temporary studio in the RUNWAY store. Shooting with the D300 tethered to the iMac, Clients could choose their picture immediately after the shoot. The shot would be postprocessed on a windows 7 laptop using a WACOM tablet and printed on PRO PHOTO Paper on our CANON i9900 printed which was installed there.
The clients would get their GLAM shot on a 15x21 print and the Makeup Artist signed all the GLAMshots personally as soon as it was finished. We saw lot's and lot's of happy clients leave the store during the 3 days shooting from 9am to 9 pm. A Monster Job, wih beautiful images...
