Beauty For Japan

The earthquakes and tsunamis that hit Japan earlier this year claimed many lives and caused so much devastation that it made the rest of the world want to reach out and help the land of the rising sun. Singaporeans too offered their hand and donations in anyway they can and we were delighted to be a part of the Beauty For Japan fundraiser organised by my client and world renowned makeup artist Andrea Claire. It was a gathering of the top makeup artists and hairstylists in Singapore offering tips and a beauty clinic to the guests of the event. With a minimum donation of $50, participants got themselves prettied up and had a portrait shot by us on the spot :)

We thought it would be fun to shoot some iPhone pictures of each fundraiser participant holding a speech bubble with their message of encouragement to Japan.

Here's a composite of some of the ladies (and one guy!) who had their shots taken after being made up!

And here's one shot in colour (so you can see the wonderful makeup) of Andrea's beautiful daughter, love the hair too!

For 2 hours of all our time that day, we managed to raise for the Japan Red Cross just under $1k. We hope this will help you in some small way Japan, gambatte!

Great shots, and I think what matters most is the message and purpose behind the photos.
