Bringing back B&W!


A week or so ago I blogged about my photoshoot with awesome photographer- Andrew R Moore, hairstylist extradonaire- Sophie Laidlaw and stunning model- Tara Nowy. I posted some behind the scenes photos from the day but they were taken on my phone and in colour so I thought I would show you all some finished photos from the day…….

I love Red heartthe classic B&W photo and realise that my portfolio definitely does not consist of enough.

Below are a few photos from the shoot, the makeup for this was kept very clean and natural initially and then eventually I made a more dramatic smoky eye to finish. Tara has amazing skin already but to give the appearance of a completely flawless and even skin tone I used HD Microperfecting Primer and HD Foundation both my Make Up Forever and used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Touche Eclat by Yves Saint Laurent for any blemishes and under-eye circles. For the eyes I used a mix of MAC and Urban Decay eyeshadows in neutral colours and finished it off with Victoria Secret FX Volumptuous Mascara. Since the photos were going to be B&W I made sure my contouring was darker than usual, using Cargo Hydrobronze for adding shadow and MAC cream highlighter in ‘Pearl’ for adding light. The whole look was finished off with Guerlain Rouge Automatique in #164.
