1930’s glamorous 1930’s winter bride…

Looking back over the year at some of my portfolio work, and came across this beautiful 1930’s art deco inspired winter bride.  I personally organised this styled shoot back in March, at the National Trust Portland House located in Weymouth.  I wanted the makeup design to be very much my interpretation of the 1930’s party scene, with a modern twist.  As often I feel that couples want to go with a theme, but get bogged down in making it authentic – whilst they should really do their own take on the era, and make it personal to them.  Which is what I wanted to reflect in the makeup design.

I started of with the eyes and made a very basic outline of a smokey eye, then filled in the centre of lid with MAC’s glitter in gold.  I then neatly lined the eyes and used some vintage looking false eyelashes by Eylure.  Filling in the brows to a natural arch and depth, I then created a flawless base for model Chloe – using a formula I have personally created for her.  Something which I do for all of my models and clients I regularly work with.  I then swept a strong line of peach blush along the cheekbone, and used MAC’s lipstick in Rebel with MAC’s dazzleglass in Funtabulous (discontinued) over the top to finish x

Capturing a mood with just lighting the Lemontree Photography way…

This image has to be one of my ultimate favourites by Lemontree Photography from our art deco photoshoot earlier in March.  I just simply admire Az for the way he can capture a mood, a feeling or glance by using his experience with lighting.  This particular image of model Chloe Lancaster has to sum up the 1920’s/30’s mood for me, with a beautiful woman dressed in an exquisite gown ready to face her audience in that airy way.
