Editorial – Panache

Another beautiful morning, sun is shining and it is time to pack up and make my way to the studio where we will be shooting today.


Busy day ahead, with 2 models, 2 hairstylists, photographer and fashion stylist. I am really looking forward to it. We started the morning with two models doing a few editorial looks, big wavy hair and winged eyeliner to start with.


For this shoot we had the lovely Nicole Kae from Tony & Guy creating some amazing hairstyles together with her assistant Daisy Hickey. As soon as the girls are done with the hair I take over and start prepping her skin.


Best way to start prepping the skin is to hydrate. Today I am using Oxyderm and MAC strobe cream to bring that dewy look to life. I have decided to start Phoebe’s look with a winged black eyeliner and nude lips. This looks will work well with the hairstyle and clothing.


For Indeya I have also prep her skin with Oxyderm and MAC strobe cream.


Makeup and Hair are done and now it is time to style. Terewai is our Stylist for the day and is doing a great job to get our models ready to shoot.
