Live sketching for Dior Addict - day 1

Had hard time posting all these photos. It was the only post so far with so many photos. This was a 3 day event held at Takashimaya, at Ngee Ann City for Christian Dior for their new lipstick - Dior Addict ~ Ultra-Gloss Reflect. My job is to sketch the customers after they had done their makeover. They got the free makeover which includes hairdo, make-up, photo-shooting and lip sketching if they spent $100 on Christian Dior products. Worth it right? In fact , I have sketched for this company last year for the Rouge Dior launch last year. But it was too dimmed that I can't snap any photos. I was told to sketch the guests' profile (simple stroke) with a hint of red on their lips (see the first image below; a display I had done up for that event). As most of them had problem recognising their own profile (they seldom see their profile; usually front view as seen in mirrors). Profile may look cool and sleek, but front views were more popular, based on my experience. Thus, I proposed to sketch the front view this time. The client agreed. Long hour for the first day - 10am - 2pm and 5pm - 7pm.

The first customer.

Think the following are either artistes, models, and reporters, as the first hour was for them. Thus the first 1.5 hour, I was dead busy sketching.

Added in more details for her profile, different from the Rouge Dior approach.

This lady wanted a front portrait view, without the lipstick.

Christian Dior's Staff from here onwards. I drew them into caricatures which is always popular, and they loved it.
