Summer is finally here and what better way to celebrate than with the return of a classic make-up look, glitter? Glitter has become a firm favourite with Professional Make-up Artists whether they are using it for glamorous photo shoots, theatrical make-up or even just for a special occasion. We outline some of the ways glitter make-up can be effective with the use of glitter spray and other products below.
1. Glamorous Photo Shoots –
Glitter spray can be an effective tool for adding something extra to a photoshoot, particularly one which has a summery theme (think Ibiza style). From highlighting features to creating some special effects with lighting and other great details, adding some glitter and some sparkle can bring a whole new dimension to your looks.
2. Fantasy TV and Film Looks –
When creating fantasy looks for film and TV, having some glitter products in your make-up palette will allow you to create some truly dazzling looks, whether you’re recreating aliens, superheroes or another type of fantasy project. When used with other special fx make-up products such as artificial blood and shiny pigment to create looks for the screen, the glitter make-up will add new depth to your range and portfolio.
3. Make-up for Events –
Often, clients will require something special to make them stand out at an event or for a performance – singers and dancers often show off glittery make-up as part of their stage outfits which adds a great touch. Using glitter spray, shiny pigments and other items in your make-up palette will create fantastic looks worthy of any red carpet appearance.
4. Evening Make-up –
Evening make-up is another great way to make use of glitter this summer, with glittery eyes making a great statement. Professional Make-up Artists should ensure that they have plenty of glitter products in their eye make-up kits in order to try out new and exciting looks. There are some great eye make-up kits available from top make-up brands which are perfect for creating great looks. Additionally, glitter sprays can also be used on top of make-up to create spectacular evening looks.
If, like us, you’re a fan of all things glitter, you’ll love using glitter products for your work. From the glamorous to the out of this world, you can be sure of stepping up your game to create show-stopping looks full of sparkle and creativity. With so many colours and textures available, investing in some new products for your kit will open up a whole new range of possibilities.
