Shoot crediting Pixi for a campaign

The gorgeous Rebecca.
These are just my basic snaps - not re-touched, I always take my own picture as I am going to make sure that the make up "performs" in photos.

The "look" was a super natural/barely there look, the make up was before the hair and Rebecca was going to have a loose ballerina bun.
Cleanse, tone, moisturise

  • Flawless & poreless primer
  • Sheerbase foundation mixing 1/2 & 1/2 No.2 & No.3 to make 2 and a 1/2 I guess :)
  • Correction concentrate to erase dark circles under the eyes
  • Nude shade wardrobe on the eyes to give a "Fresh", defined look  highlighting the inner corner of the eye.
  • Black endless silky eye pencil touched into the lashes and then blended out.
  • Curled lashes with Shu Uemura curlers and 2 coats of Voluptuous lash mascara
  • Natural shade of sheer cheek gel (for a soft flush of pink)
  • Vintage rose Lip & line for an "enhanced" lip colour with berry balm over the top for a dewy finish.

Sam had so much personality, it was a joy to work with him, he is in a band and will be fronting the next Lacoste campaign he has that Jeff Buckley/James Franco/Young Richard Gere thing going on. What a cool guy! With his band he is playing a couple of festivals this year- whether modelling or music my "witchy antennae" tells me he is going to be huge!!!
Make up- grooming, less is more, everything has to be imperceptible but flawless.
Skincare: Cleanse- moisturise with an oil (that penetrates immediately) .
I used:
  • Flawless Beauty stick #3, just blended in wherever needed
  • correction concentrate to neutralize dark circles
  • vanilla lip balm
  • lash booster mascara mixed with a tiny bit of lip balm to define the lashes
  • Sunkissed sheer cheek gel (ultra sparingly across the cheekbones)
  • Finished with the flawless beauty powder in #3 for a velvet/matte finish.
  • brows just brushed into shape
All make up by Pixi.
