It is a real joy to work with truly talented people, but it is even better when they are St Albans locals! I recently worked as hair stylist and makeup artist on a fashion shoot by Jeanette Lendon Photography, showcasing Black Eyeware frames and sunglasses created by local designer Robert Roope. Black Eyeware has taken the fashion world by storm popping up in fashion weekly Grazia and even gracing the pages of Vogue, not to mention celebrity wearers Lady Gaga and Will.i.am.
The glasses are inspired by Jazz musicians of the 1940’s and 50’s, the designs are contemporary with a nod to bygone era’s. I wanted the hair and makeup to be in keeping with this vibe, edgy with subtle retro elements. I used Illamasqua Lipstick in Sangers RRP £18.50 and Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Frenzy RRP £16.50 to achieve the glossy red lip. For the eyes I used Illamasqua Paranormal Palette RRP £34.00. These are some of my favourite products to use on photoshoots, the high pigments in Illamasqua products means the look always pops, the gorgeous Susie Webb wore it well.
