STALF shoot

STALF studio shoot - a classic look for winter.

A very enjoyable morning this morning working with STALF studio in Lincolnshire.  STALF studio creates simple, elegant and wearable womenswear which is handmade in Lincolnshire -  /Instagram

As the clothing is so simple and wearable, for this shoot I wanted to create a classic look, that can be created easily, but using minimal products - who has the time quite frankly, to spend 2 hours applying make-up!?

I used - Bobbi Brown vitamin enriched face base and then created a matte base to work out using Bobbi Brown Long-wear even finish foundation,applied with a Beauty Blender.  I then applied a creamy concealer and set with a little loose powder.  I then defined Avas' beautiful brows and set with a little MAC brow gel.  I then used a Bobbi Brown cream eyeshadow in Sandy gold all over the eye area.  Using a Maggie Hunt angled brush, I applied a MAC Black Ink gel eyeliner along the lash line and adding beautiful flicks, to elongate the eyes at the outer corners.  I then added some Ardell demi wispy lashes and added some mascara, (I love Max Factor 2000 calorie.)  I then used Cover FX bronzer and then some highlighter, (Gleam) by Illamasqua, (this was used on the top of the cheekbones only.)  I then moisturised the lips with a  lip balm, (Carmex is good), I then used an Illamasqua red lip pencil all over the lips and filled in with Hollywood Red lip colour by Bobbi Brown.  Leaving it matte with no gloss.

Daniella Draper shoot

Daniella Draper jewellery shoot...

I had the pleasure of working with the very talented jewellery designer, Daniella Draper, today in Lincoln.  I am a big fan of Daniellas' work, she is so talented.

The brief was to keep the beautiful model, Holly, (Daniellas' sister,  who incidentally looks a dead ringer for Cara Delevingne!), natural, healthy and glowing.  Holly has such beautiful skin to work on and her eyebrows are to die for!

I prepped her skin with Bioderma cleanser and then used some Bobbi Brown moisturizing balm, SPF 25, mixed with some MAC strobe cream to enhance Hollys' natural glow.  I then evened out her tanned skin a tad with some Bobbi Brown foundation stick and concealer, then applied a little powder down the t-zone.  I then used a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow to softly define Holly's brows and set with some MAC clear brow gel.  I then used a Gold Maybelline eyeshadow all over the eye area then applied a little sparkle eyeshadow by Bobbi Brown to enhance the sparkle.  I then applied a dark brown eyeshadow along her top lash line and in the waterline, finished with some black mascara.  I then used a Tom Ford shade and Illuminate palette as a bronzer and highlighted on the high points of the face.  I then used a Bobbi Brown bronzer over the bronzed areas with a pop of Bobbi Brown pot rouge.  For lips we just used a little nude pink lip pencil by Bobbi Brown.  To finish and create more of a glow, I dabbed on some Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, (I love this product so much!)

I am very excited to see the photographs, from Scott Murray photographer.
