When I first heard that I was doing this shoot, I was super excited! Rosemary's Baby is one of my all time favourite films. Utterly eerie but what stuck with me from the very first time I saw it was Mia Farrow. She had that incredible haircut and her bird-like fragility that was mesmerising. If you haven't seen it, I urge you to get it out on DVD and enjoy it! Here's a still from the film.
It's not really a hard look to recreate and there's not really a great deal of makeup involved. Key points to remember for this look is to keep eyes looking as big as possible, colours are all warm neutrals and skin's all glowy and freckly. Shall we meet our Rosemary? Meet Hannah.
Face Prep: La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar 3 in 1 Solution, Sisley Botanical Floral Spray, Emma Hardie Hydrating Lighter Lotion, Lanolips 101 Ointment.
Now Hannah is pretty amazing looking, gorgeous bones and eyes with the same bird-like quality as Mia Farrow. She normally has very curly hair but super-talented hairstylist Bianca Tuovi wrapped it all up and cut & coloured a wig specially for this shoot, I think the results are quite astounding!
Face: Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint in Beige 02, Diorskin Nude Foundation, Diorskin Nude Hydrating Concealer, Dior Skinflash in 002.
Eyes: Dior 5-Colours Iridescent Eyeshadow in Iridescent Leather, Dior Long-wear Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Intense Brown, DiorShow Mascara in Black, Paris-Berlin Beige Eyeliner Pencil.
Eyebrows: MAC Clear Brow Fix.
Cheeks: Dior High Protection Matte Bronzing Powder in Amber Matte, Dior Glowing Color Powder Blush in Sugar & Spice.
Lips: Madina Shiny Stick in 100, Rouge Dior Serum in Nude Serum.
Powder: YSL Poudre Sur Mesure in Sand No 2.
Couple of things I should point out for this look. I kept the liner a lot thicker in the middle of the eye to accentuate the roundness of the eyes. Also the I drew and exaggerated the socket line just a bit higher than Hannah's natural socket line to really create the illusion of big round eyes! The cheek colour was applied very loosely brought quite close to the under eye to replicate a natural flush and also across the nose bridge for a subtle summery glow.
So thoughts? I think we've captured the essence of Mia Farrow's look in Rosemary's Baby. As always thoughts and comments are very welcome. Hope you enjoyed this look!
