How To: Portrait Photography for Makeup
Perhaps my most frequently asked question revolves around my photography setup for makeup shots. Vote for this if you want to hear about my equipment, lighting, tips and tricks – everything I do to create shots like these…
Lorac Pro Palette Review
Is this palette still relevant? The general consensus was overwhelmingly positive, although I may be the lone dissenter…
Armani Eye & Brow Maestros
Swatches, reviews and how it performs on the face…
Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow Review
Looks a lot like the Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes, no? Have we found a dupe?
Undereye Concealer Smackdown #3
Some of you may be familiar with the Smackdown segment here on the ShamFrip – essentially, I round up a number of brands within a particular category (brows, under eye concealer etc) and offer my verdict. Undereye Concealer Smackdown #1 can be found here, Underye Concealer Smackdown #2 can be found here and if you would like to hear about my recent concealer loves/loathes, vote for Undereye Concealer Smackdown #3!
YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 52 Rosy Coral
I don’t know much about Korean Drama but clearly it’s taking over the world – an actress wore this shade and just like that, it sold out worldwide. I’m no Korean supermodel but I can feature it in a look?

Ooo I’d love to see #52 on you! I am sure its a beaute! 🙂 Concealer smackdown would be great yes! 🙂

1) Portrait photography for makeup;
2) YSL Rouge Pur Couture N 52 in Rosy Coral;
3) Concealer smackdown.
Would you please show us how you did your eyeshadow from your brush review vlog (I think it was the eyeshadow brush video)? It was unique and beautiful.
Neutral contouring with vivid yellow accents in the inner corner. The contrast was so significant that it looked a bit like you filmed in black & white and then colourised the inner corner with yellow.
It was one of the most original, interesting and attractive eyeshadow effects I’ve seen.
Love your videos and website. Thank you
Yes, I can do that look at some point 🙂 x
Portrait photography please K! x
Concealer smack down!!
All of them?! 😉
I am really intrigued by the tricks and tips behind portrait pictures. No matter how many times I have tried to take one I end up looking strange and not like what I see in a mirror!
Lighting is a big factor, I think. I’ll get that one up soon 🙂 x

Impossible to choose, all these topic seems interesting!;)

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow Review & Undereye Concealer Smackdown 3!!!

All sounds goodo but it would have to be the under eye concealer smackdown. It’s so hard to find ones that do a proper job! It drives me mad. Thanks 🙂
1. Armani Eye & Brow Maestro
2. Concealer Smackdown #3
3. Max Factor Cream Shadow
Portrait photography please 🙂
Love you videos and bog <3
I vote the photography how-to.
Awww, I’m voting for the photography tutorial :D.
I have the Max Factor cream shadows (same colours) so I’d love to see you do a look with them. That I can then make a total hash of copying.
I’d love to see more under-eye concealer reviews, in particular with good before and after shots.
The photography setup and another concealer smackdown would be much appreciated, although what I’d really like to see is a review of the Koh Gen Do foundation!
All of them, in no particular order! 🙂
Portrait photography, concealer smackdown or Max Factor Excess Shimmer!! 🙂
i’m torn!!! how to choose?
Concealer Smack Down #3 , then Armani Eye & Brow Maestros please! 🙂
Hey SJ, the Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Review is now up:
Hope you enjoy it! x
Hey! I would say
1) Lorac palette review
2) Armani eyebrow maestro (compared with Anastasia pomade?)
3) Photography stuff
I’d love to see the portrait photography one! (And then all the rest!!)
Portrait photography for Make up! 🙂 And then all the others, except for the Lorac Palette maybe…
Concealer smackdown pretty please :D!
1) Concealer Smackdown #3
Also would you ever do a tutorial focused on technique? Like the strokes used to get perfectly pro-blended eyeshadow or a defined but subtle contour? I know you’ve done quite a bit on brushes (most appreciated) but sometimes when I try to recreate at home I can’t nail the technique/pressure/placement and it ends up looking sloppy.
Love from NYC! xx
First choice: YSL No. 52 (I’m obsessed with the K-drama actress who made it famous). Second choice: Photography how-to.
Giorgio Armani eye & brow maestro!
1) Lorac Pro Palette Review
2) Undereye Concealer Smackdown #3

Lorac Pro palette review please!
Hey it’s not on the list but I would love to see an eyeshadow primer smack down. If not definitely a concealer smack down.
If you didn’t mind, it would be really nice to see a video that was focused around different types of lip products (lipstick, lip gloss, stains, etc.). I find that certain vibrant colors don’t look good on me and i think its because of the way i applied it. Also i often have very dry lips that like to peel. some tips and tricks about lip products would be much appreciated. 🙂
Do you have any recommendations on makeup/beauty books? I’m just starting to branch out from my theatrical makeup to more “wearable” makeup jobs and am looking for some good reading material for that. Any recommendations? ?
Any book by Kevyn Aucoin 🙂 Very insightful. Makeup books I find are mostly visual, there is more ‘reading’ material online.
Thanks! I’ll check those out!
