With a love for beauty and a belief that the art of a hairstyle was only its best with great wardrobe and beautiful makeup, she began broadening her makeup artistry and wardrobe knowledge very shortly after becoming a stylist. With a strong belief that beauty is an art and that each person is a canvas, she has mastered the art of makeup and wardrobe styling. For many years, she has freelanced behind the scenes of photo shoots, fashion shows and T.V., styling hair, applying makeup, selecting wardrobe and assisting on set for models, photographers and television personalities. Her work can be found in print ads, magazines, many of Scott Kelby's books and all across the internet. She has worked with some amazingly talented local and out of state photographers, such as Tres Fenton, Cliff Mautner, David Ziser, Calvin Hollywood, Joe McNally, and has been Kelby Media's exclusive freelance makeup artist for nearly five years. She loves bringing to life the ideas of these visionaries and continues to build her skills.
with Shelley Giard
Although natural beauty exists, rarely does it exist in portrait photography without a little makeup. In Creating Digital Makeup Effects in Photoshop CS5, digital artist Corey Barker takes an innovative approach by teaming up with professional hair and makeup artist, Shelley Giard to create real professional makeup looks directly in Photoshop. After watching Corey's class, not only will you be able to build a realistic makeup effect on an unmade face, but you will also be able to correct common makeup mistakes and enhance an already-made-up face with a more glamorous look. Plus, you will even pick up a tip or two to use in real-life situations when a real makeup artist is not available or in the budget. It is like two classes in one! Includes downloadable brush and color palettes for you to use.
