In February I got to work in New York City for Pratt Institute on their latest lookbook and a chance to work with some amazing creative in the industry.
I wanted to share with you and will share more in the future of how I create the looks which have been published in magazines, online or for campaigns and editorials.
On an evening a strong look is perfect and with the festival season of music and art looming why not embrace this look…..
I am a huge believer in preparing the skin before I apply any make-up on the skin and will spend a good time massaging the face before I apply the skinbase...
A while ago I was approached to create a look using Honey for Noctis Magazine.
I did use real honey instead of a skincare product to create the images shown within the magazine.
On the skin I used
Concealer - Amazing Concealer
Freckles - Liz Earle Pencil in Dark Brown and Golden Bronze
Whilst writing this blog I was thinking about the use of honey in skincare and make-up products. Honey has wonderful nurturing, repair and healing properties to the skin and has been used since Cleopatra claimed to have used it all those centuries ago.
I have listed my top 3 must...
Products used to create this look are:
Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear Light
Concealer: Ariane Poole Conceal and Contour
Bronzer: Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
Eyeshadow: Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette The Rebel
Eyeliner: Illamasqua Precision Gel Eyeliner
Lipstick: Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip colour in Palm Beach

I am thrilled to see my latest work on the front cover of a luxury magazine called La Di Da.
The shoot was arranged by myself and a talented up and coming photographer Rebecca Elizabeth Tate. We wanted to create an autumnal feel to the shoot to involve all aspects from the colour of the hair to the choice of make-up.
Hope you enjoy these images and I have given you some ideas on wearing some vibrant colours during these dreary grey winter months.

How to use Laura Mercier Cavier Stick Eye Colour
Apply the stick directly to the eyelid and blend with either your fingertips or with a synthetic eyeshadow brush to create a smouldering smoky eye.

Why I love this product
These long lasting eight rich eye colours are one of the easiest products to use to create a soft subtle smoky eye effect...
