My Week: The Balm, Smashbox and some Summer Favourites
An amazing week of shooting beauty and editorials and I can’t wait to share them all with you when they come out in the magazines. Sadly I can’t show any sneak peeks but there are some behind the scenes shots. As always each week I share the highlights of my week all packed into one post:
1) So this week I got a drop from Retailbox who now stock new makeup brand in SA The Balm Cosmetics. I have to say I am loving the products and I love the fun and quirky packaging it reminds me of Benefit. Love the face palette its got a little bit of everything which you can just pop into your bag. Retailbox are running a competition till early April so check this link out to enter.
2) This week I got to shoot Grazia beauty again over 2 days with lots of makeup trends, I think in 2 days I did 15 makeup looks it was pretty crazy but so much fun. On day 2 I painted Milan and Mari’s faces focusing on the AW14 trends in the behind the scenes shot this makeup look was all about the skin and highlighting. I also added some Mac care blend oil to the cheek bones and spritzed skin with Mac Fix+ to get the dewiness to the skin.
3) Thursday was the Elle editorial shoot which focused on modern 70’s so the look was all about focusing on the bottom lash line by adding a smokey under the eye and beautiful skin. I used one of my favourite palettes the Smashbox Full Exposure which has so many gorgeous shades for the paler model I used the matt taupe shades for the lids and chocolate for the dark skin model and for the bottom lash line the chocolate shade for the paler model and chocolate and black mixed together for the bottom lash line for the darker model.
4) If you didn’t catch my summer favourites video with Jules from All Dolled Up go check it out we chat about our favourite products for the summer season of course mine is all about creating dewy fresh skin and my fav products to achieve it plus a gorgeous summer lipstick from Elizabeth Arden.
Hope you all had an amazing week.
