Article One Avant Garde Geisha Triangles
Firstly, allow me to introduce myself.
Hi, I am Karleen Buckley, parent of two amazing Daughter’s. I’m a late bloomer in the industry. I have always wanted to be involved in the Makeup industry. So, I went back to College at the young age of 41 and have recently graduated with a Diploma in Screen and Media Specialist Makeup Artist Services from National Academy of Beauty Brisbane. Onward to new beginnings asa Freelance Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist and always learning new skills. Your invited to follow my journey as a fresh new HMUA.
Collaborating with Photographer Daniel Bunce of The Photography Studio at Woolloongabba and Model Becca Buckley (no relation as far as we know)
The inspiration for the Makeup look came from Makeup looks of Ryan Burke in Makeup Artists Magazine Issue 125. The Triangle idea from Becca’s dress. The look took me 2-3 hours to complete. I cleaned and primed Becca’s face before applying the makeup look.
