Editorial Cover for Citizen Magazine

One of my career highlights to date was getting the cover for Citizen Magazine for one of my all time favourite editorials.

I was even featured in the magazine’s contributors page.

And our team was photographer Natasha Anne Foster, photography assistant Anne Peters, wardrobe stylist Lauren Becker and hair, make-up & nails by me.  Our beautiful model was Sydney-turned-Melbourne gal Ashlee from FiveTwenty Model Management.

The editorial was named “The Supreme”, a fitting choice for the occult theme of the issue because watching Ashlee move was indeed quite magical.  A trained dancer, she had such a command of how to use her space, it was inspiring to say the least.

I used MAC Cosmetics for make-up where pigments needed to be strong as we were shooting in black and white.  For hair I used Label.M styling products and nails were painted using O.P.I. with deco embellishments from Make Up Store.

We featured labels including Lack of Color, Betty Tran, Morrison, Babylikestopony, Au Revoir les Filles, Zhivago, Peter Lang, Serpent and the Swan, Bolor Amgalan, Bul, Ted Baker, Vanessa Moe and Monster Alphabets.

Et voila, this is what we created.
