I was asked to do the make-up for the Spring-Summer collection of Vicca Bond designer maternity wear. This is for modern mums, and the outfits are statement pieces or dresses that require pretty, but strong and kooky make-up. The hair is very simple and tied back, as this is usually the choice of breast feeding mothers. And whilst this make-up is strong it really is just about the flicks and the lips.
The red lipstick and strong black flicks suit the retro vibe of the collection, but also the oriental feel of some of the pieces. Flicks are quick tricky to get even, and it is important to take your time when applying, these flicks are big and statement, but just with mascara and no false lashes… if you do wish to add lashes then go with them big at the edges to further enhance the eye shape with the liner. I used the natural point of the eyebrow as a guide to for the flick.
This model has big features and can take strong and thick eyebrows… you can use a pencil and feather it, so it doesn’t look so blocked, or an angled brush and shadow allows a controlled application.
Thi sis certainly a look that a mum could do, so she still feels and looks super glam. I’ll share some of the photos from this shoot, when I get them.
