Tight jumpsuit is the good choice for hourglass shape as they can show your sexy body curve. The oversize jacket is necessary to wear, but you can just cover the shoulders to give yourself more fashion style.
Warp dresses is the perfect choice for apple body shape people. But the deep V-neck jumpsuit is also the good choice as you always have a great bust. The belt can give the dress more style and also gives a curve from your waist.

Peoples skin tones are shows in different hues. Which hue are you? Lets cheek out here. Pale Skin: This type of skin tone is very easily to get burn but not come tan easily. The hair colour of this skin tone are often blonde or red and usually they have blue and green eyes. Light makeup is suitable for this colour tone to enhance the youthful and natural beauty of yourself. The eyeshadow work well on you is light brown, violet, and light blue, use black mascara will make your eyes lashes more stand out and just a thin coating of eye liner will make your makeup more nature. Light Brown Skin: This skin tone can get burn and get tan gradually also got wide range of hair and eye colours. To make the face stand out, grey, black, dark blue and brow are the perfect chose for eyeshadow. Because the light brown skin looks very health, the perfect colour for blush is coral, rose and deep orange. Bronze Skin: There skin can get tan easily without being burn, the hair and eye colours are more likely dark brown or black. Darker skin tone can wear most eyeshadow colours. But they look more perfect in metallic and bright colour. Deep rose and orange colour is a grate colour for blush and can do highlight on high cheek to make the makeup looks more sharp.

Same as bronze skin tone, they look gorgeous in metallic and bright eyeshadow, but mahogany skin are more looking for the highlight of the face to make the facial feature stand out.
Taylor Swift is the famous singer that many teenagers upsets with, same as many other famous female singer, Taylor have a very nice hourglass body shape so tight dress or clothing is the suitable styles for her. Because she got a pale skin so the makeup suitable for her is natural makeup but can have a big red lips to make the makeup stand out also dark red velvet dress are suitable for this skin. High heels is a good choice to make the legs looks straight and stand out the advantage of her body shape. Because she is a famous celebrity so glasses is important for her to keep her privacy.

Date: 07/01/17 Time: 2:00PM Shoot: Purity shoot for W magazine Location: Liverpool Community College Photographer: Anna Li Make up: Anna Li Hair Stylist: Anna Li
Model: Hanna Bullen Primary contact: 5399 Any special instructions: have use the stool for model to seat, because ned to do different angle shoot.
Evaluation As the assignment ask me to do, I have choose the ‘purity’ as my trend for my final photo shoot theme. The key for this trend is just like the name said ‘purity’, so the garment is basically white or plain and everything will be very simple. But even though the look would be very simple, its need to provide a modern aesthesis out. So for the photo shoot I have just choose a plain white shirt with a blue jeans oversize jacket to keep everything very simple but also its follow the rules of this trend. I have choose the natural make up for my model because when I research into this trend I found out the model who do the catwalk who using this trend always have less makeup on, I think this is maybe because the trend wants the whole look be very simple and fresh. I have also tell the model to put her hairs down to keep the hole look more relaxing and simple, the location we did the photo is just in the college’s studio and my model she’s sit on the chair and nothing on the background. I choose this to show the simple of this trend but also I use low angle to do the photo to show that even though is plain but this trend is still powerful. The Target Audience for my photo shoot is Affluent, even though many affluent like the luxury wearing but still many of them don’t like to show out. To show that my photo shoot is for affluent, I have edit it into black and white to represent the mature, calm and powerful of the affluent, I have also use low angle shooting, this create the powerful look for the model. The jacket she put on it’s just try to tell the affluent audience that even though you have power and you are mature but there is one of the debauchery inside of you. I have choose W Magazine because the cover of this magazine always shows a women with a powerful look so this would attract my consumer groups. Also as I see, W Magazine is for the women age between 25-35, this will appeal to the consumer group because the affluent people will be age between 25-35. Before I did the photo-shoot, I have do a mood board about ‘purity’, then I have also collect different makeup, hair style, pose and clothing picture from Pinterest to found the perfect way to do the photo-shoot. Before I do the shoot, me and my model have investigate is it good to have the jacket on or not, because the jacket is not really suitable for this consumer group but after the investigate we found out its turn out more good with the jacket on. Overall, the photo-shoot went well because me and my model have already plan what to do 4 weeks before we get the photo shoot get done, but the only problem is when we
doing the shooting, the light from the camera it’s too bright so model’s natural makeup can’t be seeing clearly, so if I have done the practice run we can found out this problem and try to fix it. me and my model works pretty well as a team because we all know what we should do and because we have choose the same trend so it’s easy for us to talk about what we need for the final shoot. And the last, if I can do something differently, I think I might do a different trend like the Midnight Glam, I found it really attractive and personally I really like the 1980s’ style. And for the trend I have done, if I can do something different, I might choose different consumer group, and try more different ways to direct the model and get the perfect picture.
