This project started in our Ambassador Sessions as Raw Beauty, the first session each year with Meloo Ambassadors in Jan 2016.
The reactions to the sessions & images from the Ambassadors as well as their family and friends, was so positive and reassuring
that it was added to the Meloo Ambassador program each year
thereafter. Meloo has worked with over 150+ girls and guys
since, helping those struggling with depression, anxiety,
eating disorders,bullying - the list goes on.
The feedback and positive responses have been so humbling.
They want to figure out who they are, value themselves &
embrace their true inner beauty and imperfections!
After searching for something similar in Australia and after Mel's visit to the USA in July 2019, while also connecting with
Thomas Nyugen, the founder of Project Beauty.
Meloo is excited and proud to combine & enhance Raw Beauty
with Project Beauty & joins hundreds of other photographers
from around the world to help free girls from the idea of
perfection & empower them to not only feel confident
about themselves, but to embrace the flaws that
makes them so uniquely beautiful and to also
allow those to come forward and have the
strength and courage to tell their story
and to serve as an ambassador and a
voice to those that have none.
This is Project Beauty
Once you’ve been scheduled for your shoot, here are some tips to get ready.
Keep it simple. The emphasis of the project is to connect through emotion and body language, not showing off the latest fashion trends. Jeans or jean shorts and a white or black top is usually the go-to outfit. We also recommend a white or black flowy dress. Whatever you're comfortable wearing, that's usually a good rule of thumb. We do suggest to the girls to avoid wearing anything that’s busy or has a lot of pattern.
Shoes or no shoes? We've started having clients wear shoes, but the more they got into the session, the more they became comfortable taking them off. Now we do them without. It really does add to the natural beauty look.
Outfit changes. It's usually a good idea to bring two outfits and one backup. We'll do our best to get all the outfits in and squeeze your backup outfit, depending how much time we have left.
Make-up. This is pretty obvious. No make-up means no make-up and that includes using foundation or concealers.
Hair. For hair management, this is totally up to you. Some girls like straightening or to curl their hair before the shoot. Some girls put it up in bun or a pony tail. To us, it doesn’t really matter what you do, because we feel it doesn’t take away from the overall natural beauty.
Skin. Most girls are really good with washing their face and using moisturizer the night before the shoot.
Lips. No lipstick or glosses of course. Just make sure you use lip balm beforehand to prevent chapped lips.
Nails. We usually ask all participants not to wear any polish or if you do, please have them painted nude, white or just keep them plain. As long as they’re not chipped, we’ll be fine.
