Professional Makeup Artists
In order to deliver the best possible results with a great experience, we offer in-studio (as well as on-site) makeup service provided by a number of professional makeup artists. All you need to do is to request professional makeup when signing up for your headshot or modeling session. We’ll decide which makeup artist is the best match for your style and book her for your shoot. Each makeup artist is experienced in working for demanding photoshoots, and we have long-term working relationships. They typically charge $125–150 for in-studio makeup for headshot photography and basic light hair styling, and they are happy to give you advice for your daily makeup during the session. Unless you are very experienced in applying makeup, professional makeup application is strongly recommended and worth your money.
Below, you’ll find brief bio and service descriptions of the makeup artists, who are available through and recommended by the studio. These makeup artists are not only experienced from their own training, but they get constant feedback from the photographer, who does very elaborate retouching on the photographs. We test and research makeup and hair products together, and we are constantly adapting the work process and the products we use.
Rose Fortuna has been working in Boston for over six years as a make up artist. She has been formally trained by MAC cosmetics in Boston and New York. Her fine arts degree truly gives her a creative edge as well as a poignant understanding of color theory, texture and light. She focuses on producing commercial, fashion and editorial work with top industry photographers and models, but also accepts individual client work. Rose is often seen behind the scenes at fashion shows and works with designers like Michael De Paulo and Sam Mendoza. Rose is also a beauty and creative contributor at www.Newbrahmin.com, an acclaimed Boston based fashion blog. Rose has worked at Beaupix Studio regularly in the past four years.
Christina has been practicing makeup artistry for almost eight years. She specializes in weddings, headshots, fashion, commercial, and boudoir. Her work can be seen in clothing catalogues, advertising, various websites, and corporate and entertainment brochures. She attends events regularly to keep her skills fresh and modern. She has been trained by celebrity makeup artists, including Chantel Miller and Patrick Eichler.
Christina keeps professional relations with talented photographers and hairstylists in the industry. Ryuji Suzuki of Beaupix Studio is one of the top photographers with whom she works. They have worked together for almost five years and have become an excellent team.
Christina uses MAC cosmetics. She pays great attention to the cleanliness of all her brushes and tools, sanitizing after every use.
During a shoot makeup gets applied first to a clean, bare face. She starts all applications with a moisturizer or skin primer. Christina stays throughout a shoot to touch up your makeup as you go.
If you have skin allergies Christina will go over the ingredients with you to make sure the products being used won’t irritate your skin and will conduct a patch test if you are unsure. She keeps AVEDA products on hand as a second option to MAC. Many AVEDA products are fragrance free and hypoallergenic. She discards all products deemed stale. She also chooses products containing less pigment such as lighter, earthier tones on the eyes, as higher pigment can irritate sensitive skin. Black mascara and pencil liner (rather than liquid) also contain less irritants.
Christina loves her job and working with various types of people. Seeing people smile and feel more confident after a makeup application are what inspire her most.
