03 Aug Make-up And Hair

Last week I worked on a campaign shoot for fashion label Ladakh. Gorgeous model Belle looked stunning and was a great sport while shooting on the beach in tiny dresses in the freezing cold!

This stunning image was taken by talented fashion photographer Natasha Cole.

To create Belle’s look I used-

I used St Tropez Violet Skin Illuminator $29.95 all over the face as a base for make-up. This illuminate is an opaque violet cream that gives a real iridescent glow to the skin. I also used it on the arms and decolletage to make sure the skin on the body was also glowing.

I used Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted moisturiser $59.00 as the foundation which created a sheer glowing base but gave just enough coverage to the skin. I then dusted a light coat of mineral powder over the nose just to make sure the nose wasn’t too shiny. By this stage the skin was looking perfect! clear and fresh with a supreme glow.

On Belle’s lips I used Laura Mercier Lip Glace in ‘Meringue’ $39.00 . This is a creamy gloss with a pop of pink colour. I have to admit after using this gloss on the shoot, I transferred it to my handbag! It’s mine now and I’ve been wearing it daily, I love it!

For one of the shots I gave Belle yellow eyeliner, what do you guys think? I think its kinds cool!

Belle has long and thick hair with natural wave, I didn’t have to do much to it to get natural looking loose waves. I used TRESemme Smoothing Creme $7.99  and scrunched it through the hair to give a smooth soft yet tousled look. I finished with a spray of TRESemme TRES Two Hairspray $7.99 which is a great stronghold hair spray.
