Make-up for Digital Photography

Photos by Laura Eaton Photography

The wheels above are Porsches, and the girl next to each is New York-based model, Christina Rose. Photographers Paul and Laura Eaton asked Erin to create a few high-defintion media make-up looks for the various set-ups called for in a photo session for Princeton Porsche. The images above were shot for use in a multi-media campaign that included these national magazine ads for Excellence Magazine, and other marketing and advertising projects including a postcard campaign designed to promote detailing services offered by the dealership. Other make-up looks were created at various locations around the area and included taking Christina and a racing Porsche to the banks of Lake Mercer.  These photos formed the basis of a new image campaign for Princeton Porsche's website, print ads, direct marketing, and other media materials. A detail of Christina's face from the black and white image:

Erin's art school training in film, video, and still photography (School of Visual Arts, New York, NY), graduate studies in electronic media (Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication), work in live television, theatre, publishing and other media uniquely inform her understanding of how techniques of traditional and digital image capture, lighting, and make-up can artfully combine to present personality in photos to remember.

If you need make-up for a commercial photo shoot, headshot, protrait, or other professional photography, call or e-mail Erin to discuss your needs.

Actor headshots typically call for a natural make-up look, like the one shown above that Erin created for actress Tess Ammerman. Acting, on the other hand, can call for some unusual make-up techniques! Below, Tess in a photo session that called for her to look like Marilyn Monroe. Erin styled the wig and created the resemblance make-up. (Also see Elvis on the Stage & Media page.)
