Dressed to frill
Leeds-based Shama Zulqurnain, a model and makeup artist, getting her 16 year old daughter Neelam ready for that most important of occasions: prom night. Photographing this was an education for me, as I walked in on a bed covered edge to edge in makeup and accessories, and more surprising still seeing them all get used over the next hour. Neelam received several stages of makeup and retouching, a hair piece, false eyelashes and nails, a temporary tattoo and also unexpectedly received a coating of some lotion or other while she talked to her friends on the phone. She also survived a broken strap on her dress. It’s just easier to be a man.
