Sorry for the lack of substance for the last couple of months. I have been in transition and it has been quite exciting. I have taken a step into a more fine arts field for a while. If you are a makeup fan, don’t you worry now. I will be focusing on visual arts but my concepts and practice will hopefully be intertwined with all of my practices of painting, sculpture and yes makeup! And really, who knows what else…..

For the time being I will be playing a little catch up, posting all of those shoots and projects I have worked on that are makeup related that have piled up. I will also still be work on some makeup shoots and the likes as time allows in between my art practices. You will also get to follow my art works, processes and ideas. Hopefully you enjoy!

 

This shoot, if you track back a little bit, is another shoot I had done for the Contessa Hair competition. To take a look, get a little more info click here:

XO MAGAZINE — HOMME

August 25, 2011

Photographer: Alex Waber
Models: Adam Chotem, Paige Frewer, Tyler Brad
Stylist: Tyra Lee Weitman
Makeup and Hair: Carolyn Leanne Secord

This is an exciting day. A publishing in XO MAGAZINE has occurred through the creative collaboration of the lovely people above! The issue was called HOMME. This shoot is working with a theme of an androgynous interaction between two individuals. A romance is created where the connection is felt but with a mix of female and males where the roles are not certain and the sex is not necessarily definable especially in clothing and stance.

It was absolutely fantastic working with all of these people and our work was worth the effort! For the link, to browse the magazine online, or to purchase click below!

I had the chance of getting to work on two entries this year for the Contessa hair competition! It is the longest running and most prestigious hairstylist competition in Canada. It is also the highest award that could be received for salon professionals across Canada! If your interested in more…. http://www.salon52.ca/page.php?name=contessa&storyid=10

This competitor’s name is Tim Kuo of Markus J. Hair here in Vancouver, Kits area. His hairstyles were very bold and clean accompanied by bright solid colors in the styling. I think the results are very impressive! Check him out  http://kuohair.com/

Bryon Anderson

Photographer: Lynol Lui
Model: Bryon Anderson
MUA: Carolyn Leanne Secord

Here is the latest with Bryon Anderson. It was his first shoot but he is definitely a natural. He was a bit shy in the beginning but look at the beauty and talent.

Also more amazing photography from Lynol Lui. He was working with an almost black and white, blue tinted monochromatic pallet, giving the images a lot of dimension and shape. He concentrated on revealing and concealing with the cropping and and shadows. I find them soft and slightly sexualized.
