A few days ago I was asked to get involved in a very fun campaign with BIC. They said they needed me to create a beard on a clean shaven face. I jumped at the opportunity, as this is one of my favourite special effects applications to do. Firstly it is important to get the right hair and texture for the application. Lucky I have great resources, so I managed easily to find the right hair. The most important aspect of this technique is ensure the beard appears to be growing from the pores and doesn’t look stuck onto the skin. With approximately 3 hours in the makeup chair my model was ready for the camera. I spent the rest of the entire day slowly removing piece by piece while the photographer clicked the camera to reveal the beard slowly disappearing.
You may have heard of airbrushing in relation to magazines, and many beauty products boast an “airbrushed finish”, but you may be interested to know what exactly is airbrush makeup? It is a great way of getting flawless makeup quickly, yet it looks completely effortless and enhances your natural beauty.
