Today we're taking a sneak peak into the pages of Unveiled Magazine issue 11 for the Sakura Bloom fashion editorial by Kristos Kabiotis. I loved working on this chinoiserie inspired editorial with the setting of Lartington Hall providing the perfect backdrop to showcase the gorgeous 'Power of Love' collection of gowns by Caroline Castigliano.
In keeping with the brief I created a timeless chic look with flawless blended skin that complemented the elegance of the shoot. To create this I used Charlotte Tilbury's Exagger-Eyes eye shadow palette as well as their Pillow Talk lipstick and blushers,...

Overall whilst not everything was to my liking, a lot of it was and I'm excited to use the products more in the future!

I felt this was a fitting thought to ponder on whilst I show you these pensive shots of some dreamy make-up. These shots were taken in Staithes, North Yorkshire and the make-up I have created was influenced by a 1960's vibe. I used one of my all time favourite products in my kit which is the Ariane Poole Ultimate Face Tint to really add to the model's already gorgeous complexion to give it a glowing flawless...
