I shot a Stepford wives inspired fashion story with Gary Steer and Jess Stebbings styling. We were inspired by the original Stepford movie as well as taking reference from the 60’s and 70’s in our palette.
Francesca wa amazing to work with and reminded me of a young Vanessa Paradis.
We also shot a beautiful video of the shoot ….. coming soon.
The Makeup – I wanted Francesca’s skin to look super polished with a hydrated luminous feel. I started with a heavy duty moisturizer by Weleda called Skin food. This cream is really thick and great when you’re working on dry sensitive skin, I love the extra moisturized finish it leaves.
Cream bronzing is a good way to achieve a natural sculpted look and I’m really in to my new cream bronzer by Estee Lauder as it’s not too warm. I added a pop of health to the skin with Stila convertable colour in Gerbera.
I’m still using my Teint Miracle foundation by lancome and tend to leave it without powder as it never looks too shiny on the skin. I finished off by polishing the face with a MAC beauty powder in Drizzle Gold. This is a sheer highlight powder in a butter peach shade. I wanted her skin to shine from all angels so I picked out all of the high points of the face.
