Make-up looks

When looking for make up looks for our photo shoot we wanted to have has a focus the headpieces and the jewellery more so than the make up, although referring back to the 'Above' magazine photo shoot, the model had an almost tribal like make up and yet her look seemed quite natural which we wanted to recreate, so the headpiece would become the focus. Myself and Marie wanted to attempt the make up to add a more natural feel to the shoot, we thought it may have looked odd the models make up being perfect and yet our theme was perfect imperfections-in terms of nature and the four elements: when is nature perfect?

The Topshop unique catwalk show, for A/W 2010 was a must as a reference when thinking about natural make up and our theme. During the shoot, when we were applying make up to our model, we had printed Topshop catwalk make up ideas off for us for reference. Both myself and Marie attempted with the make up and hair. Marie plaited Lucy’s hair as we had seen something from the catwalk and thought that the plaited hair look gave the concept that little extra something and I tried doing some artwork/painting onto Lucy’s forehead to create a tribal look.
