Just got the ok to publish this picture for a shoot I did with TMRW, a Danish magazine. I worked on this shoot earlier on this year but like most shoots it was done in advance for publication and hence the delay in blogging till now. Anyway, just thought it would be nice to share the image as I used the (then) new season's shades from Dior and YSL. And also it was a colour combination that I've been wanting to play with properly for awhile. Let me explain.
Everyday while I go about doing my job or whatever, at the back of my head I'm always thinking about makeup on some level. It's usually trying to work out unusual colour combinations that clash, harmonise etc. Anyway I have never been one for pinks round the eyes as I have always thought it would look like you've been crying for days so being the stubborn Taurean that I am, trying to get pink to work with eye makeup has been roiling about in my head for god knows how long! Well as soon as I laid my eyes on the new season's colours, the cogs in my head finally clicked into gear and here we have it!
Dior 1 Couleur in Graphic Grey
Dior 5 Couleur in Gris-Gris
YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres in No 10
YSL Creme De Blush in No 5
I suppose the grey works as a temper to almost neutralise the hot pink and make the whole combination work much like how I use Taupe which is also when you think of it, another variant of grey. So there we have it. Another colour combination worked out. Look out for more weird combinations in my future work, believe me, there's more where that came from!
