Hello! Long time no post - sorry! I thought I'd give you an insight into a day at work with me. Everyday is different - from working 7 to 8 hour days at Pynk doing hair, nails and make-up on a seemingly endless conveyer belt of people, to hectic fashion shows, to chilled out shoots with just one model. Monday was the latter.
On Monday, I worked on a photoshoot with photographer Sara Lacuesta and model Holly Pollock. The idea was to have translucent fabric draped over the models face.

The look:

Eyes- strong black and glossy. Mac Chromaline in Black on the lid, topped with black eyeshadow from Naked cosmetics, finished with Mac clear Lipglass painted all over the black. Waterline and lower lid lined with Barry M black kohl. Brows lightened with Inglot concealer brushed through with a mascara wand.

Lips- OCC Lip Tar in Cha-Cha (pale peachy orange) lined with orange kohl from Barry M and blended in.

Cheeks - OCC Lip Tar in Cha-Cha, stippled on with the Cosmopolitan beauty blender sponge, topped with Barry M blush in Apricot on the temples and in front of the ears.

Hair - Pulled back into a high bun, fringe backcombed and made into a mini quiff/roll.

Here are some pictures I took while the shoot was taking place! Hope you like them, I can't wait to get the final images!

 Afterwards I headed back to spend some time with my gorgeous Mum and wonderful nieces.

Also, I met somebody amazing. He was wonderful, very sweet, just what I needed, but our relationship didn't last long. Meet George, the vanilla soya latte!
