Decisions, decisions! How ridiculous but true. The choice to lipstick or not lipstick can be the make or break for whether you are the right candidate for the job. A lot of ‘creatives’ believe it or not can’t see past the vision they have in their head. They can’t see that if your wearing red lip stick and they imagined their heroine in nude pink that you could simply take a single sheet of loo roll and wipe it off! Today I felt the need for some colouring in and despite the brief went “duck it, I’m going to face the world how I see fit today”!
Let’s see how it goes!
As per usual I have joined Sean Lerwill on one of his shoots for Men’s Health and Maximuscle. I have succumbed to the fact that I am a Sean Lerwill groupie. He is pretty awesome though so I’m not ashamed!
I started looking through his pics to choose a couple for the post and realised i had been present at all of the gigs above. I am so proud of all that he has achieved. He works hard, the hardest worker I have ever met. He is kind, considerate, loyal, honest and incredibly fair. Definitely a worthy role model if ever one was choosing to follow around another. I have learnt the commando ethos from Sean behaviour as it is ever present. The only one I may help Sean with at time to time is The Cheerfulness in the Face of adversity, he can be a wingey bugger, when he hasn’t eaten.
Of course this was my favourite! Maybe a little bit of favouritism! The make up team was under the leadership of Zoe Newlove. Unfortunately some of the paint had worn off by the time we got to the tube location and without the girls on standby we couldnt have it looking as good as it did at the show but hopefully you can see the full article on Zoe’s blog. http://www.zoenewlove.com
Years ago I heard Barbara Streisand describe having her make up done as being coloured in. It kinda stuck with me. I think this guy might get a lot of colouring in! Not really, I can imagine it took even longer to make it look as real as possible. Colouring in every single vein and pock mark shadow. Incredible!
I am a sucker for a beauty shoot. This must be the 100th time I’ve shot for the London Beauty Esthetique, but every time I love it! We always manage to create something different but always as beautiful, elegant and brilliant as the first! Having such a great team behind it all makes these regular reunions so worth it!
The Eye Media Studios genius, Bill Gidda was as per usual snapping away, vision after vision, Faye Gorman on styling, with a little help from the beautiful new addition to the team Baby Harrison. Today’s make up artists were Alice and helima. Both very talented and new to the game but beauty visionaries all the same!
Oops and a huge THANK YOU to the amazing Soraya. I don’t know how she manages to create hair masterpieces on my limp locks!
Looking forward to seeing the pics, but for now just got a couple of behind the scenes pics.
Thanks again guys for an awesome day!
