I've been practising various makeup application techniques for a while now. I guess it kind of kicked off the day I accidentally left all my brushes at home, forcing me to get out of my comfort zone and work in a new, scary way using everything but my favourite tools. Since then I have also got myself an airbrush machine - a magic toy which makes me feel like a grown up kid and a proper artist at the same time. That's the best thing about being a Makeup Artist; you don't stagnate cause there's always new products, textures, colours, tools, inspiration and things to explore and learn. And by making mistakes one can only make progress! I don't often get to play around with my airbrush using wild, vivid colours and shapes, but when I do, I'm in seventh heaven. Here are some photos :)
Customised eyelashes and dip-dyed hair.
The amazing Stylist Emely Catherina Skjelbred.
Lots of colours and textures. Love it!
This is from a shoot in Copenhagen, first time ever using airbrush.
I spent days cutting stencils. Two spare hands come in extra handy.
The result! (this photo + opening photo: Dennis Stenild)
