How I created *that* makeup look for the Burley Manor Barn styled shoot…

The styled shoot for Burley Manor Barn hasn’t even been published yet, and already I am getting a stream of requests to re-create the look I did for model Sophie for brides next year – which is just incredible.  I am also asked how I did it!  So here is a little run through of the products I used for the shoot.

First I primed the eyes using my go-to eye primer, Urban Decay primer potion in anti-aging.  Next I used my current favourite eyeshadow palette – Rosie for Autograph in Deco Diamonds, and used the deeper colours for the crease of the eye and the highlighter on the brow bone.  Next I lined the eyes in Soap and Glory waterproof eyeliner in Brown and added No.7 Dramatic mascara, additionally applying false eyelashes in Eylure No.114.  Filling in the brows to finish the eyes.

For the base I used two facial primers, one by Smashbox and the other by Dr. Brandt.  Applying a bespoke foundation mixture I have created for Sophie on shoots (to allow her skin to breath)  I then used a little concealer by Rosie for Autograph, and a soft pink sheen highlighter on the tops of the cheeks by Benefit.  Lightly adding blusher and a touch of bronzer for warmth.  Applying setting powder, and a further shimmery setting powder completed the face.

The lips again were a bespoke colour I blended using Bobbi Brown’s professional lip palette (available only online)  You can create a similar look using MAC’s Love Lorn lipstick shade x
