From the best of the Okanagan Valley, we found the team of talented professionals to create our elaborate ICE QUEEN VISION for our Winter cover.
The team met at 9AM at White Wave Studios with coffee in hand to get started on our creation.
Missy Mackintosh has become known for her elaborate makeup skills using a variety of methods to create depth and interest in her work - our shoot was no exception. The magical transformation of our model was enhanced with the use of tons of glitter and unique lashes created by Missy’s own fair hand. She took our beautiful model, Amy Lundman, and made her into a chilling, fierce Ice Queen.
Talking about Amy, there was no lack of commitment from this young beauty, before arriving on the shoot, she actually bleached her eyebrows! We promise she is not as cold as she looks.
Before Missy started gluing the ice crystals onto Amy’s face, our hairstylist, Jessica Langedyk, took her turn transforming Amy. The theme of the day was volume and texture and to meet our vision, Jessica crimped, backcombed, curled, sprayed and added lots and lots of dry powder - all for effect..… you name it, she did it!
Missy polished off our Ice queen with white airbrushing around the face blending through the hairline and adding ice crystals to give even more sparkle!
With that Amy was ready for her close-up.
Jenny's inspiring passion never ceases to amaze us here at Okanagan Woman. Using tulle, mesh and frosted glass, she created an abundance of beautiful veiled shots adding texture and interest to an already elaborate shoot.
…and for all you aspiring models out there, you should know that this career requires the ability to hold an awkward pose for a ridiculously long period of time and a lot of patience ….. just ask Amy how long it took to brush her hair out and dissolve the glue off her face at the end of the photo shoot!
