In November, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic Lucy Byrne from J'Adore Models Manchester and the super talented photographer Gabriella Csutor. We wanted to create some amazing beauty images, culminating in a "gold bath" setup.
I started with a simple "no makeup" look. I wanted Lucy to look clean and fresh, and for her gorgeous freckles to be seen!
I then progressed to a nude colour theme. I totally channeled Kevyn Aucoin for this look! I love this lipstick, unfortunately it is a limited edition shade from Estee Lauder and is no longer available. Gabriella came up with idea of using the silver prong clips as a feature accessory.
For the final look, we wanted a super glamorous look using shades of berry.
Here is the look before we put poor Lucy in the gold bath! Marsala is the Pantone Colour of the Year, so deep wine shades will be prominent and work well on lips, like the Sonia Kashuk lip shade I used on Lucy.
And here is the grande finale! The gold bath shot! We created this effect by sifting Mehron Gold pigment over the water. Messy but effective.
Lucy was such a great sport! You cannot imagine how awkward posing in a bath tub can be!
I am so pleased with the results of this shoot, and I can't wait to work with these amazing ladies again!
Here is to a fantastic 2015!
