In the last quarter of 2014, I was booked to shoot two step by step beauty tutorials for Kryolan with Paul Merchant, Head of Makeup at Kryolan UK and fabulous hairstylist, Joey Bevan. As Kryolan were sponsoring the prestigious Bambi Awards, the two looks had to be stunning red carpet beauty looks. I’ve always wanted to experiment with film and animation, so I decided to utilise the stills I had and create an animated step by step beauty GIF.
This is a fantastic way to show off any beauty or hair tutorial, especially with the ability to control the timings of each image independently. If this particular tutorial had elaborate hair, or required involving more of the makeup artist or space for text, then this would have been shot in landscape and exported as a video to allow HD use on YouTube, Vimeo etc.
