This makeover photoshoot has inspired me to offer you something AMAZING! I’ve been planning to write about the details of that photoshoot for a long time but I couldn’t find a suitable moment. I think now is the right time to do it.
Why? – I will tell you at the end of this article, so keep reading.
It was a birthday present for my sister when she was visiting me in March this year. The photo above has received two awards and was published in SPOTO Photography Magazine back then.
See my post about the awards together with links to the publication HERE.
My sister, who is 15 years younger than me, wanted to spend her birthday in Dublin. I’m not surprised! Where’s a better place to have an epic party and have a great time than Ireland, right? I was thrilled to host her here and I wanted to give her something special. That’s when I thought about a photoshoot. I bought her an outfit for this, booked a makeup artist and prayed for a good weather (which is totally unpredictable in Ireland…). In case of rain we also set up a small studio at our house. I wanted this shoot to be a bit different than usual, more artistic and I did my best to make it look that way.
Marta Markowska Makeup Artist did a fabulous job! Just look at the photos below.
Maria’s Makeover – “before and after” photos:
(*she gave permission to publish those)
I’ve never seen my little sister looking like this! She usually wears very little makeup so it was a little bit of a shock (but very positive)! She loved her new look and was really excited about the shoot. I think it was a perfect makeup for my idea of the photos I wanted to create and as it turned out later, Maria seems to have a natural talent as it comes to posing! See for yourself!
You can be our model too! Details at the bottom of this article.
A few photos from the photoshoot:
And one from the studio:
“In March I had a pleasure to work with Ania and Marta. I loved it because it was prepared from the beginning with every detail. Before the photoshoot I talked a lot with Ania to work on details of the costume to pursue our vision. It was Ania who found and talked with Marta first. It was a great decision to work with her. She is an artist in her art. I loved her makeup. When she saw the costume she already knew what to do. It took a while to prepare the makeup but it was totally worth it. The photoshoot was great. I am not a model and yet I felt really comfortable in front of the camera. Ania had a lot of ideas and she helped me when I didn’t know what to do. I could see that she really loves her work. I’m definitely looking forward to our next photoshoot!”
