Wow Cindy C looks uh – mazing. I love this shoot the light, the poses the make-up and hair.
The make-up is super flattering using golds, peaches and black for definition. Tanned skin will always look super glam and heathly. Cindy is in great shape and it shows.

New Work

This shoot took influence from  early 90’s supermodels/grunge which is back! I find it strange that era’s are back that I have lived through and remember! A sign that I am getting old!! Saying that I might be old but I’ve still got it ha ha!!

The Look

The look I created yesterday was dark and sexy taking references from the supermodels in the nineties. In fact this was the time I started to notice fashion so it was reminiscent of my teens pouring over Vogue magazines in my bedroom.

Pau had simply gorgeous skin with a lovely little smattering of freckles that I wanted to highlight and not cover, I used Mac’s Face and body foundation in c3 as it has a really sheer coverage.  If the skins good don’t put too much on it! I used Laura Mercier camouflage concealer on the under eye and to highlight I set the base with Mac’s Prep and prime making sure this was blended in with a large soft brush.

This look is all about the eye and brow. I started with the brow exaggerating it and defining it with Illamasqua’s brow cake in glaze which gave a nice dark finish. I then started on the eye I used a Bourjois Kohl pencil on the water line top and bottom I then used an angled brush to really get the kohl into the lash line and just below. I then applied Mac cream colour base in Antique gold to the lid and into the socket line I then used Nars cream eyeshadow in gold rush to the front of the eye and tear duct I bumped up the colour with a Mac gold eye shadow in the centre of the eye. Using another cream colour base in dark brown I filled in the socket line and beneath the eye I then used Mac black track on the outer part of the lid and followed with black powder to create a sexy cat eyed look.

Cheeks I used a Make up forever brown cream to contour under the cheek bone on the cheeks I used a Mac mineralize blush in peach and then highlighted with luna cream colour base.

I then curled Pau’s eyelashes and added two coats of stilla Mascara I left the eyelashes quite clumpy to make it look dirty sexy.

After highlighting the lip on the cupids bow with a beige pencil I then added lots of a lip gloss in a light brown colour super sexy.

Marc set the hair in pin curls and back combed to create Pau’s super luxe hair

Behind the Scenes

Before any real action starts we have a team meeting to discuss exactly what we are going to do, put all our idea’s in and hopefully come out with some kind of wonderful.

Efi wants to shoot in black and white with a mix of outdoor location and studio shots which really adds extra dimension to a shoot it makes it more interesting and suggests narrative. The vibe Georgia the stylist has gone for is nineties grunge which in case you didn’t know is back we are in the midst of a nineties revival. Before you rush into the loft and dig out the shell suit and high tops think again this grunge is cool and more about supermodels than supermarkets!

Marc and I ‘the glam squad’ want to keep it gorgeous but dirty not too polished very sexy. Marc decided to do big hair which I love and I go for a strong brow and a smokey eye very Guess campaign.

I think the sexy hair and make up works really well with the clothes.
