A few weeks ago I headed down the road to Manchester, to work with singer/songwriter Lisa Williams on her latest record Breathe Out.
Lisa was releasing the record exclusively at the Gavin Blyth Ball on Saturday 26th October, which was packed with stars of Emmerdale and Coronation Street. The annual ball, held in memory of the acclaimed producer Gavin Blyth, who sadly passed away after a short battle with cancer in 2010, aims to raise funds for Macmillan. Therefore, all proceeds from the singles proceeds will also be donated to this brilliant cause.
Working as part of the Art Deco creatives team, I created a bold evening make-up, inspired by Lisa’s sapphire sequin dress by local designer Nadine Merabi.
Stylist Siobhan Cooper from FashionStylist.Me, sourced a gorgeous array of evening gowns, statement jewellery and elegant shoes, which inspired hair stylist James Wilson and I to create hair and make-up fit for a Hollywood scarlet.
Once Lisa’s hair had been styled into volumeous waves, I got cracking on make-up!
Using a warm burgandy shadow in the socket line, with gold shimmer on the eyelid and inner corner, I added a pop of colour to Lisa’s eye make-up, with sapphire blue on the outer corner and lashline.
For an extra hit of Hollywood glamour, I created a deep red lip and matching nails, finishing the look with a contoured cheek.
Then it was time for photographer Ian Mcmanus to work his magic on a rooftop garden, looking over Manchester’s buzzing streets.
