Creating the sumptuous Hair and Make Up looks from our S/S18 shoot!
It's that time of the year when we want to rejoice in the sun and look forward to the summer. Don't let the snowy and cold weather outside bring you down and instead surround yourself with our wonderfully peachy new collection. And to add a bit more drama why not recreate the wonderful hair and makeup looks that made this campaign so special for us.
For this wonderful season of light and sunshine the amazing Alex Babsky (@babskymakeup) created the makeup looks we simply cannot stop recreating - our Spring Summer '18 Campaign makeup. While the hair looks for our S/S18 shoot were masterminded by Lara Zee, a London-based hair stylist, the cream of the crop and our personal hair favourite (@larazeehair).
For the first look Alex created a clear and glowy complexion with minimal make up. In order to achieve the best base he triple cleansed so that the skin looked plumped, polished and healthy and them moisturised with the lightweight Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. With minimum foundation and concealer he evened out the skin tone and added colour to it and powdered it down with only a light dusting of powder in order to not eliminate the glow.
Next, Alex used a cream bronzer and highlighter to add depth and dimension as well as keeping the skin natural looking and dewy. The brows were matched to the hair and warmed up to tie in with the sunny environment and summer feeling of the collection.
The makeup was finished off with a touch of the Monsiuer Big Mascara by Lancôme and plumped lips achieved with a bit of lip liner by Lancôme in Beige Rose and that was lightly blended.
The hair for this look was lightly curled and with a texturizing spray it was left to have it's own natural flow so as to pair with the natural and light makeup look.
For the second look, to add a more dramatic spin to some of the more fashion-forward pieces, Alex blended a little dark brown eye shadow to the lid to add depth, and used a soft black liner on the lash line, smudging it on the eye lid for a smoky look. Slightly heavier mascara opened up the eyes and gave them more definition.
To achieve the wet hair look that goes perfectly with the darker and more moody part of the season Lara used a Bumble and Bumble texturizing spray and Dry Finishing Oil. This achieved a "just came out of the sea" look - perfect for the Spring/Summer season and for the location itself!
So if you yearn for the warm and sunny months as much as we do why not treat yourself to some gorge pieces from our collection and recreate the makeup and hair looks?
Maybe if we all decide to dress for summer it will finally arrive...!
