In Memory of “Elizabeth Taylor” by HALA AJAM

In Memory of Elizabeth Taylor

Try to be creative with your own individual look, as you never know how amazing that result will be.  I like to think of the “art of makeup” as a playful game: not only is it fun to experiment on the surface with different looks, BUT it is also a great tool that enables us to touch on the different personalities within us all.

Experiment from time to time with different colors and the way you apply your makeup, change your hair style if you have worn it the same way for years, even change the way you dress.  Surprise yourself.  Change can bring about great discoveries.

Background:
RACHELLE is my beautiful client And I have asked her to be part of my book (FACE TO FACE) back in 2005. I wanted to create a retro look . She  has darken her hair, so I was inspired by an old photo for Elizabeth Taylor and I wanted to do it.

Process:
So the hair is darker now, with some accessories (that I got from here and there), we did the make up and went to David Abdallah’s studio for the photo shoot.
I was lucky that the dearest Yehya Saade was @the studio, as he helped me put it all together.

History: 1950’s
From film, to fabrics, to cloths, to makeup: color is everywhere. The new trend was towards lighter skin, beauty marks, fuller lips, and arched eyebrows. Eye makeup becomes more customized according to the color of your eyes. Demi-lash were added to give the eye a sexy and dramatic look.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  2. magnificent post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!
