The Power of Individuality With Tom Corbett
Like any embellishment, makeup helps the wearer express themselves. Adding splashes of color, or the right shadow in the right place can brighten a bright cheery face, or imbue a subtler energy, tailored to the girl it enhances. For Tom Corbett's latest shoot with Fitness Magazine, he helped explore how a little color on the eye can change the entire energy of expression.
Tom is known for his high energy, high fashion shoots, with exciting props and invigorating composition. But he and Fitness Magazine decided to put the models front and center, allowing their personalities and natural energies to shine through. With a little bit of makeup, tailored for the model and the season, Tom's shoot stayed fresh and focused, without leaning on the bells and whistles. Instead, the props were the models' natural elements. Basing the color choices off the models' eyes, the focus was on "the windows to the soul," ekeing out who these models are. (With a little help from some beautifully colored nails by Titilayo Bankole.)
The object was to prove that a little bit of color and shape can tailor a look for each wearer. Each shot of Tom's shows a completely different girl. But it's not just different because of their looks, it's energy. Their personalities shine through, brightly, powerfully, gently. Each is very different, calibrated carefully, and perfectly in tune.
