The art of throwing chalk…..

Hello lovelies

I had my first photoshoot since arriving back in Edinburgh with the talented photographer, Andrew Moore, awesome stylist, Rebecca McCosh and beautiful model, Lauren Andrew. We had such a fabulous shoot, lots of fun, giggles and chalk throwing……. Let me explain. Andrew had this awesome concept of throwing coloured chalk over Lauren as the photo was being taken…..After much debate on whether to blow the chalk, flick or just launch it at Lauren we finally decided on the ‘launch effect’. I sadly think I took great delight in throwing chalk at this wonderful model. The after-effect that the chalk left all over Lauren looked amazing too and made for a very arty and colourful photoshoot. Here is a little sneaky peek of Lauren covered in chalk………

I am in complete and utter love with the makeup that I did for this photoshoot. The awesome rectangular, block red eyeshadow looked super quirky and worked perfectly with all the clothing Rebecca had put together for the shoot. This look is super easy to create all you need is a good eyeshadow primer, some bright eyeshadow (I used Inglot) and a steady hand. Firstly, I drew an outline of the rectangle with an angle brush and then I filled it in. I kept Lauren’s base very natural using Makeup Forever Primer to even out skin tone and then just covered any blemishes with concealer. Lauren has amazing skin so I hardly used any foundation at all. To complete the look I added some bronzer to the cheekbones to create added definition and then changed the lip colour according to the outfit, sometimes colour matching other times clashing.

Loving being back in Edinburgh and working with the talented creatives here. Can’t wait for more photoshoots, my next one in on Tuesday with one of my favourite models who has featured many times in my blog- Miss Taz Nowy from The Model Team Agency.

Catch everyone next week……I certainly have a busy one coming up
