I don't need to tell you how thrilled I was when I found out I would be making up the face of one of my favourite supermodels of the 90s who is still going strong today! Yes I was a little bit excited. And best of all it was to be shot in her lovely home where she lives with her husband and family. I've worked with her daughter Amber before so was lovely to see her again however husband Simon was on tour and nowhere to be found. Oh well, we can't have everything can we?
I got my hands on some products from gorgeous brand SUQQU to use for the shoot and everything just went super well. The look wasn't anything mad, I just wanted to make the gorgeous Yasmin look even more beautiful by using natural copper/bronze colours to enhance her gorgeous skin tone, a result of mixed parentage, Iranian and British to be exact. Actually working with such a pro has it's benefits and it's also nerve-wrecking as models like Yasmin who came from the 90s when the greats all knew how to do their own makeup so we discussed the look and how I saw it and thankfully she liked what I suggested! Please have a look at the shots, I'm extremely happy with them.
Aren't they gorgeous? And doesn't she look incredible? It was quite easy for me as she really is one of the most beautiful women I have ever had the fortune to work with. My only objective I wanted to achieve was to make her glow and make the most of Yasmin's incredible skin tone. I achieved this by using all my favourite secret weapons such as radiance enhancing serums, primers and products. And amazing photographer Kate Martin did the rest with her super gorgeous lighting!
