The shoot was lensed by Natasha Foster who also built the set. Our wardrobe stylist was Jessie Frost who took influence from the 1970s. And Bella from FiveTwenty Management brought everything to life.

I worked on hair, make-up and nails and here’s a breakdown of what I did.


I worked with Bella’s natural texture to keep her curls looking full yet “undone”. I prepped the hair with Fudge Sea Salt Spray and Pump Up mousse, blasted dry with my hairdryer and set with Fudge Membrane Gas and Head Shine.


Tools of the trade and the final result.



Filed into a squoval shape, were painted using Mecca Cosmetica’s Volumina (two coats) and I applied the Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat for extra shine. I LOVE this top coat, really does what it says and I use it myself always!  Dries really fast too which is always a bonus for those of us who are also impatient.

My focus was on creating a beautiful creamy skin texture, strong brows to balance Bella’s curls and to use a colour palette that complimented the muted 70s feel of the shoot. I opted for gold and brown tones to work alongside the set backdrop and to work alongside wardrobe.  I used MAC paint pots, contour powders, highlighters and brow products.


I drew influence from Jerry Hall in the ‘70s and you can view my moodboard of inspiration images here.
