Fashion Collaboration – Makeup Artist Tina Daffon – Bay Area, San Francisco
A few weeks ago, I organized a creatives collaboration and worked with a number of artists and models. This was a personal project of mine that I had wanted to do for quite awhile to get some practice with developing a stylized, concept-inspired photo shoot while integrating some new-to-me processing techniques that a lot of my peers are massaging into their workflow.
One of the ladies who was a part of the project was Tina Daffon, who is a self-taught freelance makeup artist in the San Francisco bay area.
The two main influences in her art and her biggest supporters are her mother and aunt. Over the last few years, Tina has built up a continually growing number of online supporters through social media. YouTube, in particular, has been very instrumental in market research and helping her to better define areas of specialty. While Tina enjoys freelancing, she especially loves editorial photo shoots and applying makeup for special occasions. She identifies herself as a true California girl with a penchant for glitz and glamour.
Tina aspires to contribute to more commercial projects and is setting goals to be published in major fashion spreads or magazine covers.
