From the unpublished archives…Flawless Photoshoot Face

As the title suggests, I had to make sure my make-up was flash-photograph ready and able to withstand studio heat and also last the day. In fact, these photos were taken after the photo-shoot with minimal touch ups. I probably just touched up the lip colour and patted my nose with some powder. I had been wearing the make-up for most of the day so I think I did pretty well!

I wanted to look like the best version of myself. I kept the look natural looking except for the topliner – no-one has eyelids like that! Do you think I successfully portrayed what I set out to achieve?


It looks like I used the following products:
Laura Mercia Smooth Finish Foundation Power in 17
Sleek eyeshadow palette in Au Naturel
Sleek Contouring Kit in Medium
Clinique blusher in Smouldering Plum
Bobbi Brown lipgloss in Nude 87
Bobbi Brown lip pencil in Cocoa
Bobbi Brown lipstick in Hot Cocoa (I think)
Lancome Artliner
Kiko Luxurious Lashes waterproof mascara
Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in Gold Bronze
Bobbi Brown corrector in Dark Bisque
Bobbi Brown concealer in Golden
YSL Touch Éclat in Shade 5
Laura Mercier foundation primer
Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl waterproof eyeliner in Cocoa Bean

So much kit!

Spot the Real Techniques brushes! I think I used the:
Duo-fiber face brush
Duo-fiber contour brush
Duo-fiber eye brush
Setting brush

I also used:
Bobbi Brown cream blending brush
E.l.f. Eyeshadow “C” brush
MAC brush 219

Not that many brushes though...
