To this…

We decided on a clean aesthetic for the make up and hair to work with the geometric lines of the set design and clothes sourced.

I got creative with the nail design.  Thank you Emily for not smudging!

I did these badboys freehand!

And my make-up brief was creamy skin, strong highlight & strong brow.

Until we got to later on when blue eyeliner was applied to the lower lashline and a metallic tint added to the lips.  I increased the shading on the eyes too to balance out the graphic liner.
