I wanted to create a shoot that highlighted the hair with a touch of quirky makeup. After all my hair training from the London Hair Academy I decided to shoot a hair editorial and Lucys Magazine decided to feature it. Happy Days. The main focus of the hair is braiding and the different braiding hair styles. I collaborated with local South African jewellery brand Matter Of Fakt to add extra dimension to the shoot plus dress the braids up a little bit. The cuffs are actual ear cuffs but you can so rock them in your hair. I tried to keep it simple with the skin, the jewellery and the nails so that all the real focus is on the hair styles.
I totally focused on amazing skincare you know my beauty routine if you follow me but here is a quick overview of what I used. I don’t only focus on Mac skincare but I needed some serious hydration for Gabrielle’s skin:
Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist
Mac Lightful C Marine Bright Serum
Mac Prep + Prime Skin Radiance
Mac Fast Response Eye Cream
Mac Mineralized Charge Moisture Gel
The key makeup elements for the shoot:
Mac Face and Body Foundation
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer
Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo in Panaroma
Chanel Le Vernis in New Dawn (travel diaries fall collection)
