FEATURED ARTIST SHARES MUST-HAVE AMATERASU MAKEUP
Posted on August 31 2017
Our latest featured artist is the lovely Lindsay MacLean. Not only is she an amazing makeup artist, she is a wonderful person who is so sweet and kind. We will be featuring Lindsay’s work on our website from September to December 2017. For this project, I wanted a very classy and fun flapper look with a modern twist. The models exude sophistication and confidence with alluring features that make them true classic beauties.
Please read on to learn more about Lindsay!
Artist Name: Lindsay MacLean
Sara: Where did you grow up and where are you located now? Current workplace?
Lindsay: I grew up in Langley, BC, and have now been living in Vancouver for 8 years. I am the owner and lead stylist at Lindsay MacLean Makeup, and am a boudoir photographer and makeup/hair artist at Lux Portraiture.
Sara: Tell us what inspired you to be a makeup artist?
Lindsay: Film and TV! I grew up trying to dissect the special effects and prosthetics makeups of all the shows I watched. I knew that one day I had to be a part of that industry. There’s something about playing dress-up every day that was and still is very appealing.
Sara: What are some of your favourite makeup looks?
Lindsay: I really enjoy anything inspired by the 1920s and the 1960s. I find the sleepy, doe-eyed look of the ‘20s very alluring, and the outrageous colours and Twiggy-inspired liner and lashes of the ‘60s are always fun to re-create.
Sara: Do you have a signature makeup style and if so, what is it?
Lindsay: Working at a boudoir studio, I feel I’ve perfected the smoky, sultry eye. My go-to style is always perfect, flawless skin, dewy highlights, fluffy lashes and a dramatic eye framed by full brows.
Sara: Please share with us your experience of this photo shoot.
Lindsay: This was so much fun! I really enjoyed the theme of the “Modern Flapper.” I married my favourite features of classic 1920s makeup with the refined beauty of the modern day. Everyone who worked on this project did an amazing job: the models perfectly captured the mood we were trying to convey, our hairstylist created beautiful looks inspired by that time, and I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful outcome, thanks to our photographer.
