Before and After Photoshoot

So I know how you all love a before and after makeup photo so two of my beautiful clients took part in our latest shoot. As per usual we did not use any lighting tricks (just good old plain natural light) and no photoshop, not that either of our models need it! I don’t like to create dramatic makeup that completely changes someones appearance so my before and after photoshoots are not meant to be highly dramatic. Instead I use makeup to balance and enhance their features so they still look like themselves only a little more glamorous.

Both ladies have very similar colouring so I used mainly the same products on both of them:


Mecca Soft Focus Smoothing Primer

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc and Santa Fe

Mac Pro Long Wear Concealer in NW20

Stila Gerbera Cream Blush

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush palette

Hourglass Ethereal Light Powder in the T-zone

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Glow for highlight and bronzer


Mac Paint Pot in Painterly

Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita and The Vintage Vamp Eye Shadow Palettes

Mac Dipdown Fluid Line eye liner

Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Hourglass Blonde Brow Pencil


Shanghi Spice and Peach Blossom Mac Lipsticks
