I too have seen a few examples of photoshopped makeup, - some horrendous and actually uploaded by makeup "artists" where theyve drawn on the eyeliner with the pencil tool, or coloured in the lips - and had comments on the photos where no one seems to have noticed!!
However have also seen examples by photographers which have been to a very high standard - (ive just spent ages trying to find this one example I had in mind but its disappeared!) - buuuuut, there had been a mua, and the photographer had photoshopped a design down the models cheek and neck. So her work wasnt touched, just soemthing extra added, which did look very good.
The photos provided above - they all look believable apart from the bottom two... however the poster did say 'achieved at a very basic level' - so yeah maybe its time to start worrying! haha
I always do a minimum booking rate ie. £*** (up to 3hrs) then give my rates as per.
- up for 6hr)
Full day (up to 8hrs)
+ £?? per extra hour over 8hrs
Unless they originally state 12hours for music vid or film or tv
i'll give them an up front figure without giving my 3hr/6hr/8hr rates.
Hope that makes sense
I charge per hour and depending on how far I have to travel, usually state a minimum of a 4 hour booking. TV commercial work is sometimes different as they have their budget and usually offer thier rate for the shoot and you can either accept or not.
I absolutely hate it when models go and change their make up just before going on set and expect me not to notice! I turn into the incredible hulk when that happens, lol!
