“It only reveals itself upon intimate inspection”.

Part of the internationally published and exhibited ‘Abandoned Fashion Series’ project by photographer Luke Woodford.  I was honoured to be the main Makeup, Hair and Nail artist to continue his project but this time in Belgium. The best thing about this project was the team I went along to Belgium with- Talented,  passionate creatives! I can honestly hold my hands up high and say this is one of my best photo-shoots I have ever done. The adventure alone was so fun and inspiring.

Some of you were following the lead up to this photo-shoot where I created and shared the make-up looks and nails I made ready for the shoot, so to finally show you it all in action above is so exciting- The images were took by so many different talented photographers which came along to the shoot, I can’t thank them enough capturing the moment and being able to share it with you all.

Inspiration behind the Make-up:

I witness so many make-up artists looking at other make-up artist’s work- And to be honest a lot of people will either copy or actually can’t design and create their own ideas! I find sometimes by looking at other artists work it can be distracting from designing your looks. So for this look I wanted to do something that I have NOT seen anywhere or any other artist do- and I would say this is down to visualising the look in my head(mainly before I sleep), sketching ideas and being inspired by the designer’s garments we used in Belgium- Malgorzata Dudek! Luke trusted me with 100% control of the looks which gave me more of a chance to be as creative as I can be. Looking at the dresses which had spider patterns and a highly dramatic intricately detail, I took the pattern designs from the silks and laser cut metal elements with a vision of high fashion make-up & hair look with spiky patterns which are a secret message, “It only reveals itself upon intimate inspection”.
