Makeup and photoshoots are what Model Friday at Terri Tomlinson Makeup Training Academy (my pro-makeup classes) are about. After 9 days of intense learning and practice, makeup students are given an opportunity to see their work come to life. This session I brought in models from The Dragonfly Agency in Dallas, working with Kevin Chung their new faces developer. Students create a beauty look and story board and on Friday they get to create their looks on models for the shoot. Kelly Williams was my photographer and did a great job. Here are some pictures and behind the scenes.

This story follows makeup student Speshal who created a look with a bright lip and soft glowy skin. Here she is with her story-board and also working on Dragonfly model. Lastly is a pic of the two on-location shooting. I’ll follow up with the finals in a couple of weeks. Next class is the advanced makeup and corrective course August 11-22.
