Hair and Makeup
Todays shoot for Luxe Magazine was full of glamorous party spirit, girly glitter and sparkly sequins that adorned dresses, trimmings, jewellery, clutch bags and shoes in dark hues of cobalt and jet for makeup midnight drama.
For the makeup I wanted to accent the drama of midnight with dark smoky eyes in eyeshadows strut, cobalt, slick and smoulder with just a touch of metallic reflection in the centre of the lid. Brows were groomed with only a little filling in required. Cheeks had the prettiest sweep of MAC Dollymix. Cheekbones and brow bones were highlighted with Kevin Aucoin ‘Candlelight’ and lips were treated to a mini exfoliation and balm. Hollywood red pencil was applied and finally MAC ‘Ruby Woo’ lipstick for a matt finish. The whole look was set with a beautiful new addition to my kit, Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder to achieve a matt finish.
For the hair, I wanted the look to have a light hearted, fun, party spirit feel to it, so opted to style Laura’s hair into a beautiful big bow combined with a faux fringe giving the look a distinct vintage twist.
The shoot took place at Roomzz Hotel located in the city centre near Newcastle keep with a super Northeast based team, Luxe Magazine Editor Kathryn Armstrong, Photographer Kevin Gibson, Fashion Stylist Fiona Mclain and Model Laura Nicholson.
