As a makeup artist it’s really important to get hair and make-up that work well together. Here The V Team opted for a wide blunt fringe clip on by Balmain and curls that frame the eyes and cheek bones.
The brows are defined but in a colour that works naturally with light blonde hair… it is good to choose one shade darker than the blonde. You can see I’ve also blended warm golden copper tones on the eyes that really bring out the pale bluey-green colour. And I’ve added an extra lick of mascara on the lower lashes with a soft white eye-pencil along the inner lash-line to really open up the eyes.
Lashes on the top and bottom of the lids also creates a doll-like flutter that works with the fringe and curls.
I’ve applied subtle contouring for a gorgeous flawless soft-focus complexion and a pop of pink glossy colour which is a fun way to round off this modern, retro look.
It was amazing to work on set of the Debra Lamb shoot. It’s so much fun working together with a team of artists, prepping for an interview like we did this time. Photoshoots usually mean an early start and some commuter traffic, and still managing to be on time and friendly to everyone you meet when you get there! That’s why I like to pack my bag the night before and make sure all my brushes and beauty equipment are ready to go when I wake up! I also pack water or a light snack to keep me going till midmorning. Check out some of the pics from the shoot here…
Debra’s interview is here… and yes you may hear me laughing with the other crew members in the background – a sure sign of a fab shoot day.
A 1970s’ bride needs shimmer and glam, and a pop of colour all tastefully done, think Diana Ross.
Make-up: Create a blue-grey smoky eye over the lids, bringing the colour beneath the lower lid too. Add gold metallic shadow to create the wow factor and depth and blend it into the smokiness, but keep more colour in the centre of the lid. Dare to wear big flirty lashes and lashings of mascara. Coral lips are a lovely colour for this look and ensure the blush is subtle but tonal with the lip colour. If you want even more disco edge add gloss to the lips and dab gold liquid liner to the lower lid. Remember bridal looks need to be slightly subtler than the original beauty to avoid it looking over the top. But you can go wild with the ultra-glittery nails… metallic work as do deep and earthy shades combined with vibrant pops of colour such as orange.
Hair: The hair is big. This look was achieved by working on the natural afro hair of the model, and teasing out the tight curls. For non-afro hair, use a crimper and keep a centre parting with a flower accessory to achieve an iconic seventies look, perfect for halter neck dresses or big sleeve key hole styles.
