PORTFOLIO – My Editorial For White Noise Magazine.
This is a long overdue post and gallery update, I did the make-up for this shoot about 3 months ago and have been trying to find the time to edit and upload the looks. I absolutely loved the model, she was a true professional standing in a freezing unused warehouse in open toe heels whilst it snowed heavily outside. I remembering it being so cold I could barely hold my brushes properly, getting the lips sharp was tricky with shaky hands.
The look was inspired by the monochrome trend, the stylists were fabulous creating a high fashion look using high-street fashion labels. The direction for make-up was quite natural building to dramatic with a different hairstyle and make-up for each of the looks.
The first look was barely there make-up with very natural loose hair, side parting and just rolled out of bed look. All I did here was a little pin point concealing and contouring.
Look 2 was more street with a sky high pony tail and black liner, I polished up the skin a little more and added a rose bud lip colour.
Look 3 was more grungy with the hair wet at the root then left dry and texturised at the bottom. I used a gel and water spray then back-combed the ends for that ‘stepped out the shower and letting my hair dry naturally’ look. The make-up got darker and a little more disconnected especially under the eyes, I used Illamasqua Hollow under the eyes for the lived in look and it creates shadow giving the illusion of bigger doe eyes. The lips were given a plum shade to enhance that edgy appearance.
Look 4 was the sunglasses, for this I just perfected the lips and wet the hair completely, the poor model must of hated me as it was -4 outside that day and probably colder inside the warehouse!
Look 5 was more polished, I call this the YSL or just SL as it is now as it has that sophisticated, expensive look. I placed a deep side part in the hair and slicked it down with gel and spray. The make-up which is hidden here was darkened with more liner and deep blues. I also made the lips a little darker so that they would stand out in the black and white shots.
