I recently worked for a new company, lookformation.co.uk in launching their new website. Look Formation is a lovely company launched to empower women, giving them confidence and building blocks to help themselves with their lives both personally and professionally.
I worked with the trial group on their last day which was makeup and photography for their business portfolios. I made over a lady called Cathy, who ran her own business in the city and wanted to create a strong portfolio for when she started creating more contacts and whatnot. So for her photos, she wanted a clean, crisp and fresh look, with a bit of a dewy finish to make her skin look younger. We discussed different options for awhile before deciding.
I primed with That Gal by Benefit, followed by MAC Face and Body and a mixture of a couple different concealers from my Bobbi Brown BBU palette. Blusher was Love at First Blush by Soap and Glory and just a tiny bit of Benefit’s High Beam for a highlight before a gentle cheek contour with elf’s blush and contour palette. She had beautiful, clear skin anyway, so I was just adding a youthful glow and even coverage.
For eyes, her lids were primed with Stay Don’t Stray by Benefit before I used MUA Cosmetics’ Undress Me Too palette. (A palette that still proves that you don’t have to cost the earth to be incredible) She did not want an upper lash line, so we left the lid classic and neutral. Her lower lash line was lined with a brown Model’s Own pencil and she did not want a water line colour. I used MAC’s 3D Lash mascara and she did not want false lashes.
Cathy wanted a soft lip, so went with Rosette by Rimmel London which is a soft red, with a clear gloss on the top.
I moved on to her hair. Cathy has naturally poker straight, fine hair which she wanted a bit of volume. I curled her hair first before giving it a backcomb.
She looked very pretty in the photographs and I hope she was happy with the photos.
I hope you enjoyed this look and let me know what you think.
