Stylist Katy Kingston @ Era, Hair and Make-up Victoria Bond using Paul Mitchell and Mac Pro, Model Morven @Premier
When I received the mood board for this shoot I was instantly excited, and began to design looks that would be fitting to the shoot. I wanted it to be slightly bonkers but beautiful Alice in wonderland meets clockwork orange at an English garden party….if you get my drift…
Morven the model has the most beautiful pale skin and lovely thick hair – perfect for the look I wanted to create.
I wanted to create a lot of fuzz a cloudy effect which I could then pin up and down make bigger, smaller and create shapes with it. Firstly at home I pre-curled hair wefts with small babyliss tongs just in case Morven’s hair needed filling. On the day I prepped Morven’s hair with Paul Mitchell Sculpting foam, I was very generous with this and completely covered the hair in it, I then dried it in with my Parlux hair dryer. I then used the small babyliss tongs to curl small sections from the root to the tip, spraying on Paul Mitchell Hold me tight before and after curling. Once I had curled all the hair I left it to set then started the make-up.
Skin Prep – Cleansed with crealine Bioderma, moisturise with Astalift jelly (the perfect make-up base) lips prepped with Dr Lipp ( It’s important to condition the lips at the start of the make-up especially if the model has any dryness.
Base – Mac strobe cream on highlighted areas. Chanel aqua Lumniere in 10 Clair this foundation is just amazing on super pale skin I love it. Under eye and any small blemishes Mac pro longwear concealer in nc15. Again I am in love with this product the coverage and finish is fantastic no other product needs to be added all day.
Brows – brushed up with Mac brow set in clear then filled with Mac slate eye shadow .
Eyes- graphic cat eye created with Mac Black track gel eye liner. No mascara on the top lashes just the bottom I used Maybelline one by one, I then placed a dot and a dash underneath the eye using the black track gel, then finished with a few long Eyelure individual lashes on the bottom lash line.
cheeks – contoured with Illamasqua cream pigment in hollow perfect on pale skin, highlighted with Fardel powder in silver. I used a lot of this as I really wanted the highlights to stand out.
lips – I used several different Mac lipsticks throughout the shoot ranging from silver glitter to matte orange.which is why it was so important to prep the lips first!
Later on in the shoot I added Bobbi Brown Longwear cream eye shadow in copper to the remaining part of the eye up to the eyebrow
after finishing the make-up I then went back to the hair I pulled out the curls and back combed added more Paul Mitchell hold me tight hair spray to create volume and fuzz. I then used sectioning clips to create different shapes with the hair throughout the shoot.
Have a go with this look and let me know how you get on!

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to work with Lizzie Armistead modelling the Stella McCartney Adidas Village wear range. This was for the evening standard and shot in the Olympic village, as a member of the general public I was very lucky to get in! Lizzie was absolutely charming and a joy to make up here is a run down of the products I used.
I started by tying Lizzie’s hair back into a high pony tail I used Paul Mitchell Hold me tight hair spray to secure and keep away any fly away’s.
Skin prep – Cleanse with crealine Bioderma, moisturise with Astalift jelly (I find this gives the best base for make-up, it sinks in almost immediately) and leaves the skin lovely and plump and ready for foundation.
Lizzie has amazing skin so I just used a light coverage of Mac Face and Body, Laura Mercier camoflarge concealer on the under eye and on any small blemishes/redness. I then set with a little bit of Mac prep and prime powder.
Eyebrows – groomed then filled in with a taupe pencil from Medina in Milan (my fav pencils)
Eyes- I used Bobbi Brown long wear cream eye shadow in slate just on the eyelid, I then used Laura Mercier eye caviare in Black on the top lash line , Bobbi Brown taupe eyshadow on the lower lash line,really blended to open up the eye, beige pencil on the inner water line then finished with two coats of Maybelline one by one volume express mascara in black, combing through each coat with a Mac fan brush.
Cheeks- Contoured with Mac’s Bone beige powder blush (another of my favs).
Lips- Dr Lipp for natural shine.
