Makeup? [Dec. 1st, 2008|12:44 pm]
Lanette
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

I'd like to do your makeup and take your picture.

I'm looking to practice a few new looks and also to get better at doing makeup and photography. Let me know if you'd like to participate. I might be willing to do some retro hair for you, but it will have to be a good pain day to get all of that done in one day.

I have some time off between Christmas and New Years, so let me know if you want to take me up on my offer.

I'd love to volunteer. Makeup only would be fine, no hair necessary, but I'm awkward about pictures. :)

That would be fun. I'll try to get some nice user pictures for your LJ. My camera isn't the best, but I'm checking out a book to learn about lighting, so hoping to put it to practice. It would be nice to show you the house too!

BTW, if you haven't already read Bryan Peterson's Understanding Exposure, I cannot recommend it enough.

Actually, my recommendation of that book really has nothing to do with whether or not you have read it :)

I'm finding that lighting is by far the hardest thing about getting a great photo. The vision in my head doesn't translate to the image in most cases because I don't have the lighting quite how I want it.

Peterson's book will help with that, believe it or not.

I just love that book so much. It's helped me and every photographer I know immensely.

Can you make a silk purse out of a sow's ear? I kid.

I'd be interested! As I've been getting older, I've been considering starting to wear make-up and trying to find something that won't set my skin off like products I've tried in the past (which ultimately drove me to stop wearing it).

I'll actually be down in Maple Valley for Christmas, and likely part of the weekend of the 27th.

And my mom has been after me for a new picture, so bonus there as well!

Maybe we can do so before Christmas and print one out for her? That would be cool. When is the next weekend you are going to be in the area?

Sadly, not anytime before Christmas. I have her sorted for the holidays anyhow, so no worry on that front. Let's shoot for the 26th or the 27th?

I won't be home from Portland yet until the 27th. How about Sat evening the 27th?

We don't know each other that well, but I would LOVE to be a guinea pig for you. :) Your makeup always looks fabulous, and I am getting more and more interested in fancy make-up but without the ideas and skills to back it up.

That sounds like a blast! I live out in Maple Valley and hopefully that will work.

Yay!

I am totally excited about this. When is good for you? I am in town for the holidays, and will travel for make-up for sure. :)

Any day after the 26th would be awesome. Saturday the 27th sounds ideal to me.

I'd be all over that if I lived near you! Maybe you could photoshop me some instead! :-P

I'd be glad to. Send me your unedited, and I will practice my gentle retouching. :)

Okay, but if I take a picture without makeup on it will probably break the internet. Consider this fair warning.

*giggle* We'll have to teleport together cause I'm pretty sure my unmakeupedself is the reason for most bad things in the world. Could even be why 9/11 happened.

I would love this! I adore your make-up and I suck at wearing any of mine, and I am always up for hair dos!

My time off around during those times would be the 27th in the afternoon (after work) or sunday the 28th (seahawks and make overs---WIN!)

I wish! We would have so much fun. Bring the boys and I'll make them sit for photos too. :) Besides, what's Aaron gonna do about it? Holding babies is good for pain.

They're used to me making them pose for Photos. Justin would wince but deal with it, Liam would ham it up, and agreed: aaronw ould just lay there. LOL!

I actually have that week off of work. I wish I could afford for us all to fly out and invade your house. :)

How about me? OK, I realize I'm your sister and you can do me any time, but...wait a minute, that sounded bad. *has a Bell, Biv, Devoe flashback*

How would it be if I came up on the 28th too? *crosses fingers hoping it's a good pain day*

I'll bring some snacks.

I think that would be good, but now I"m confused about the schedule. If I'm going to be home already just show up and I'd be glad to do you too!

In the comments someone else said they'd come by that day and that it's a Seahawks game day and they'd bring breakfast goodies. So I'll see you on the 28th!
