London Fashion Week....

I assisted at the Gemma Slack show which I loved, the clothing was a beautiful mix of metal, leather, aluminium and suede.


I was on Jaimee Thomas's make up team, with 7 others...

We had 13 models to make up and each one was allocated either red, pink or orange - the above model was pink. The inspiration was the 1980's with its heavy contouring, so we applied soft brown tones of powder eyeshadow in the socket and swept it out towards the end of the brow. We dragged a darker brown under the bottom lashes and filled the brow heavily with a black grease paint, pulling the shape down the nose. The lids were packed with bright pigmented grease colour in pink, red or orange. A tiny dash of the corresponding colour was applied between the socket line and the brow, this colour was also taken high up on the cheek bone and forehead. Chanel Bronze Universel was worn on the lips and as a contour under the cheek bone and on the temple. All the models wore O.P.I The Frill of Brazil red nails.

Thanks for the opportunity Jaimee, big loves xx
