With being so busy working at So Coco Rouge during Wedding season, I haven’t had a chance to get back on set for a few months. So when Michelle Wilson of MSW Photography contacted the SCR Pro team looking for an artist, I was delighted to see I was free to join the fun!
The shoot was focusing on both swimwear and colour blocking, so a great chance to try lots of new products I’d been itching to play with!
With the weather set to change to miserable rain we headed to Crosby beach first to shoot three swimwear looks. Stylist and co-founder of PickWick Magazine, Louise Dwyer created the looks for model Ksenija of Nemisis agency, featuring an exotic swimsuit and 2 piece plus a gorgeous peach toned vintage inspired number, all complemented with chunky jewellery.

I designed the make-up to bring out the bright tones in all three outfits, making minor changes for each individual look.
I layered cream pigments Illamasqua Cream Pigments, ‘Androgen’ and ‘Bedaub’ and MAC eyeshadows for a colourful eye look, whilst keeping skin fresh and clean with Kryolan Dermacolour and MAC Face and Body Foundation. Soft definition on cheeks was achieved by using Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate and a subtle hint of colour to the apples with Kryolan Lip N Cheek in Hibiscus. I added a strong pop of colour on Ksenija’s beautifully full lips, using Sleek Pout Paint in Rosette and Art Deco Clear Gloss.
Hair was kept simple, in a sleek tight ponytail and nails painted in gorgeous hot pink OPI nail lacquer ‘Charged Up Cherry‘
Next up we headed to Michelle’s studio to shoot three colour blocking looks- all with a slight Mad Men feel. With this is mind I created a bouffant hair style, and kept eye make-up simple, focusing on stronger lips. For a strong red lip, I knew exactly which product to turn to- Kryolan Lip Stain in Rock, which complimented my favouirte red OPI nail lacquer perfectly (typically a limited edition!) ‘Off With Her Red’ from the Alice In Wonderland collection.
