Part of my Orillia hair and makeup series of beauty photos includes a rockabilly inspired look – one of my faves! Susie Maurice, lead stylist at Changing of the Garnet Hair & Esthetics studio along with sister Rejeanne Maurice, makeup artist, created a pin-up inspired look on Jayne as part of their new portfolio for 2013.
Here’s a little bit more information on Jayne’s look:
Susie Says: “Whether you call it vintage, rockbilly or pin-up, it doesn’t matter – it’s totally in style right now! Rockbilly or pin-up looks contain awesome curls and waves that can only be created with talent, patience and a hell of a lot of spray! I didn’t want to go 100% retro for Jayne’s look so I combined waves and curls with a super voluminous pony tail. I think the pony tail adds some fun, movement and playfulness to the look without losing the sex appeal associated with the era. A look like this can be dressed up in poofy polka dot dresses or worn more casually with pencil skirts and a flirty top; it’s super versatile and idea for so many occasions.”
Rejeanne Says: “There are a few aspects of Jayne’s makeup that are worth highlighting; the first being freckles! I love freckles – they’re magnificent! They add so much character and wonder to someones personality that they shouldn’t be covered up! I used a tinted moisturizer for Jayne’s foundation instead of a heavy coverage foundation because I didn’t want to hide her freckles. Jayne also has a few freckles on her arms and decolletage so to cover up those on her face without covering up the rest just wouldn’t jive; makeup is about looking at the whole picture – not just the face! Second: the brows. Jayne has great brows but to keep with the rockabilly look, I chose to fill them in a little more to enhance that angle that is so tell-tale of a retro look. Finally, I used false lashes on Jayne to help create that “cat eye” shape to her eyes without excessive liner. Jayne has the confidence and bubbly personality to pull off this look every single day!”
Oh Jayne, you’re such a beauty! Thank you so much for sitting in front of the lens for me – it was truly a pleasure!
