I am absolutely in love with this editorial I did for Womens Health with one of my favourite South African model’s Emma Menteath and fashion blogger of mylifeinpink. The story was all about what to wear under your sports clothes that make you feel good. The makeup and hair vibe was the wet gelled undone look with some serious contouring and strong eyes.
The hair was pretty simple I straigtened Emma’s hair with a flat iron and then worked water and gel to create that wet undone look.
Skin was prepped with Dermalogica and for her base I used one of my favourites Georgio Armani Luminous Silk sadly its not available in SA a great alternative is the Elizabeth Arden flawless finish perfectly nude foundation. I kept skin dewy with Mac charged water hydrating mist is a winner for fresh looking skin.
I went with bronze eyes because it really works with Emma’s skin tone, By Terry do amazing long wearing eye sticks this one was Ombre Star in Bronze Moon a great alternative for this is Maybelline Colour Tattoo in And One bronze.I gave Emma bold brows to really accentuate the eyes using Smashbox Brow Tech.
Contouring was a really important part of the look and even though Emma has killer cheekbones, for the look I used my current favourite the Smashbox contour kit with a matt texture. For the highlighting I
I finished off with lips by keeping them nude I used the Elizabeth Arden beautiful colour moisturising matt lipstick in nude its the perfect shade of nude to go with this look. Hair and Make Up: Me, Supernova Creative Management
