Sorry for the lack of posts everyone. It's been a crazy couple of weeks of shoots and celebrities! More on that in the future but in the meantime, here's a gorgeous 70s/Charlie's Angels/Summery look I did recently for a shoot.
Actually it's quite a funny story. I was briefed to to a simple look as the shoot only really wanted the model from the lips down as it was a beauty and bag story! I refused to let it be a waste and thought that I'd use the chance to try out a few new palettes to create a modern version of a 70s summer look. Think Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Ladd, Candice Bergen, Heather Locklear, hazy summer days and gorgeous glowy healthy Californian girls from retro TV shows! Anyway I digress, meet Julie.
Now we have to admit that Julie is pretty gorgeous to begin with and her skin is pretty much flawless! So it was pretty easy to work with. I wanted delicious shades of pink, gold, soft washes of taupes and bronzes all mixed up into a gorgeous look to reflect beautiful glamorous women in hazy Californian 70s sunlight! Note that I did the eye makeup really soft and hazy without any hard lines, applying colour according to the natural bone structure of the eye in soft washes. Have a look, I've included photos of Julie in natural and flash lighting.
