Just got the previews from my latest photoshoot with Hugo Delvaux from Belgium, and am super happy with the result :)
The costume is from Oranit Kaggan, a designer I met last year at Eilat Festival in Israel and the hair and makeup are inspired by the shoot I did in Montréal with Rodolf Noël, an amazing photographer that Aziza of Canada works with regularly.
The difference with my usual makeup for stage is that there is generally no glitter used for the eyes, and much darker eyeshadow, plus more shadow/kohl lining UNDER the eye than I normally would do for a performance.
For the lips I tried to get as close to the darker orange colore of the costume as possible, adding a touch of gold glitter to the centre for lack of orange lipgloss. I was not sure seeing the effect in daylight at first but on the pictures, especially with the light backdrop it came out just right :)
The hairstyling was done using a curling iron (and LOADS of hairspray ;) then pinning the curls up until the moment of the shoot itself for maximum hold, gently brushing out the top part of the curls, teasing the crown of the hair for some extra volume and crossing the front hair sections over a bit to give it a more 'sixties/seventies' feel.
The background we used for this shoot was light grey paper, with filtered flash lights and umbrellas on both sides plus an extra bright light on the right side. Poses are inspired by my dance friend Razia, who will be posting her photoshoot results from that day soon as well.
Above are a few non-edited previews, the complete album can be found on my FB page here. Another blog post, with pictures of the shoot in Canada this April with Rodolf Noël will follow soon as well. Stay tuned!
