Make-up was talked through with a professional make-up artist, discussing what look would best compliment our artist's image and the costumes for each shot.

|Beyonce's look in "If I were a Boy"|
For our main performance shot, we opted for a 'wet' look, taking inspiration from the Beyonce video "If I Were a Boy". Costuming for this shot was simple, because this shot is a close-up at its widest. We chose to have no costuming for this shot so it shows her vulnerability, as well as allowing us to layer more vibrant, busy shots on top.
|Look for Fire Projection Shots|
Since we intended to project quite vibrant moving images on Yssy, the make-up for this shot needed top be quite bold, so as not to get lost in all of the colour. We opted for make-up that was quite bold and sharp, especially around the eyes, so that the audience are given a focal point the shot. These shots are much more, for lack of a better word, fiery than our other shots. It's Roza's chance to show off and embrace her femininity, that being the reason for our choice of costume being a tight fitting cream and black dress. The dress doubling up as a canvas to be projected on, while still giving some texture to the shot and bringing it back into the 3rd dimension.

|Look for Rose Performance shots|
|Look for Bridge Performance shots|
Costuming for the Central London performance was in a way dictated by the weather. Warm clothing with a jacket was a must, so we opted for a nice and warm jacket with fur lapels. Make-up is slightly more generic than the other performance shots because it was a location shoot, with bold eyes and red lips.
The costumes used in our narrative shots jump between a range of looks. From extremely casual (kitchen shots) to fully dressed up with sharp looking make-up (Bedroom Argument). Harry's look follows the same trend, with minimal/no make-up.
