I was lucky to work with the wonderful Luisa Brimble, who is an uber-talented photographer and just overall amazing person and the fabulous blogger Natalie form Eat Read Love on a fashion editorial shoot for a designer boutique in Cronulla, called ROAR. If you are ever in the area, check it out! The shop is located in a former church building, and is just really worth visiting.
Are you liking the look? Here is how I achieved it:
The model sure was a natural beauty, so I kept her makeup very spring/summery and bare. I wanted to create an undone look, like a cool girl would achieve herself. Just emphasizing her features without the use of colour. Base: Starting with a hydrating toner by Tata Harper and massaging Jessica's dry skin with nourishing moisturizer Vinosource Riche by Caudalie Paris/ Her gorgeous skin only needed a dab of foundation through the center, I chose Chanel Vitalumiere in 20, which gives a beautiful radiant sheen and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal for highlights on the cheekbone & upper lip. I brightened her under eye area with By Terry Touch expert in Nr.3, then contoured her cheekbones with Benefit Hula Bronzer to sculpt the cheeks. Eyes: I used a nude eyeliner to open Jessica's pretty eyes, dabbing clear gloss into the inner corners of her eye and just sweeping underneath her lower lashes with a soft liner brush and some warm brown eyeshadow.On the upper lid I soflty blended a wash of peach pink eyeshadow by Nars. The brows were filled in with a Laura Mercier Brow Pencil in Blonde and then brushed up with an Ardell Brow Gel. After curling her lashes, I only used one coat of mascara to keep it more understated.
Lips: A tinted balm on the lip and ready was this super simple and natural look.
Hair: The hair was tonged in different directions, to create a random natural wave with texture and movement.
And now I am really in mood for Sydney Spring!
