Shahnaz Loves Beauty

At the end of last year I got to work with this phenomenal model Christine who has shot Calvin Klein underwear, Zara and Mango. Over the 5 days we shot 5 different editorials in such great locations for the UK brand Elvi. This shoot was definitely my favourite as I love the cactus farm location and the clothes for the day. Hair was textured with a beautiful beachy wave and makeup bronzed with a peach flush on the cheeks.

This is hairstyle is one of my favourites for every day and I wish my hair looked like this when I got out of bed. Christine has the most amazing hair so styling it was a piece of cake. My Vidal Sasoon Easy Wrap is by far one of my favourite stylers as it creates such effortless waves. Spritz hair with heat defense and mist with a hair spray and then take 1 inch sections and tong. The key to this look is not to tong the whole section leave the ends so it looks more modern.

The makeup here focuses on the bronzey eye and peachy flush on the cheeks and a pretty nude lip. Its my go to look for the summer season. I love Mac face and Body for that flawless dewy complexion. For the cheeks I used theĀ Morphe blush palette in 9N. Its a mix of pinks and peach’s that are perfect to rock the flushed look. Its my favourite blush palette at the moment and for 9 shades at R450 you can’t go wrong. There are so many amazing nude lipsticks on the market from Rimmel to Mac you just need to get busy testing to find your shade. For the eyes I worked bronze and gold to make her eyes pop. Its such an easy look but looks so amazing.
