Biba Girl

These pictures were shot in a vintage shop in Sheffield. The shop in question is dirty and smelly, but thats what I like about it. Its got character! Like a old fashioned pub that hasnt lost its charm by having a modern makeover. We gave the model a Biba inspired look about her with washes of different colours on her eyes, defined sharp dark lip with curly bouncy hair but still looking modern and chic.

Simple Black and White

Love these pictures so much, everything about them is simple and effortless. Sometimes simple black and white photos can have the biggest impact. This shoot has definitely inspired to shoot with more male models!

The Dark Side

Another shoot with the talented Craig Fleming, Natalie Shafii and Stephanie Slater. Clothes were provided by a new up and coming designer Ashley Jones.  The  clothes were very avent garda and wouldnt look out of place on a Gareth Pugh runway. So we wanted to give the clothes justice. Natalie some how (dont ask me how!???) gave  the model coned shaped hair, which looks amazing. I didnt want the the overall look to be too fussy so i kept the makeup pretty slick by giving a defined dark lip, (with Illamasqua black lipstick with Mac white lipmix)  perfecting her skin,  (with Makeup Forever foundation, Mac prolong wear concealer, Mac finishing powder, Mac Mineralize powder)  defining brows (with Mac lingering & stud eyebrow  pencils) and  keeping eyes bare not even putting any mascara on.

Pop of colour

These are a set of beauty looks a did today. I wanted to keep the overall look,  looking no makeup makeup with pops of colour on the lips. I like the look of how the bright colour on the lips sits along her bare looking skin. I wanted to create an almost beautiful alien look about the model.
