How I created this look…

Hair –

I saturated the hair with Kerastase Luxurious volumising mousse then blow dried the hair section by section using the VS Sassoon Total Protection dryer until completely dry. I then applied Kerastase Multi Talented Styling Balm to each section, this helps give the style hold but great flexibility. Next I parted the hair on the side and used the VS Sassoon Deep Retro Glam Waver on each section to create a beautiful deep vintage wave ensuring to angle the front section slightly forward and over the face. When I had gone over each section with the waver from root to ends I gave each section a light spray with Kerastase Micro Mist Fixing Spray to ensure the waves had maximum hold.

Once Bianca was dressed, make up done and ready to shoot I loosened the waves by gently running my fingers through the hair- this gave the waves a softness and elegance. I then spritzed the hair with Kerastase Gloss Appeal Instant Shine to finish off the look and give the hair a beautiful shine.


First I applied Revlon Skinlights all over the face, neck, chest and decolletage using a foundation brush to give the skin a radiant glowing base. I then lightly applied Revlon Colorstay 24 hr foundation to the face also using a foundation brush. I wanted this look to be soft and have the kind of ‘hazy’ eye look that I have seen so often on the runway this season so I didnt use any eyeliner for this look at all. I first applied Shadowlinks eyeshadow in ‘Pearl’ to the entire upper and lower eyelid for a radiant pearly sheen. I then used a combination of ‘Satin’ and ‘Plum’ shadowinks to define the eye and socket line. I finished off the eye with a light coat of Revlon Bold Lacquer black Mascara. On the lips I used Revlon Moisture Satin lip colour in ‘London Posh 050’ for a nude and sligthly pink glossy sheen and on the nails I used Gel Envy polish in ‘Checkmate’ which is a pretty taupy nude.
