i met photographer wales wong, photographer and one of the editors of Veux Magazine, in the wonderful world of the internet! the magazine caught my attention and after having contacted wales, we were on our way to plan a shoot for issue 10 entitled ‘alchemy’.
i was so excited to create four different metallic looks; i had been dying to try using metallic foil! it was so fun to be able to literally paint the face like a canvas using silvers, golds and bronze and being able to decorate the canvas with sheets of metallic foil. i always love experimenting with new textures!
the team was amazing, we managed to fit in 4 makeup and hair looks and had them shot all within five hours! it was great working with wales for the first time and always fun working with carlos from spellbound hair design. each of the looks were accessorized by hand-made jewellery from students at OCAD.
here are some behind-the-scenes photos of us hard at work!:
And here are the tears from veux magazine issue 10!:
