What can I say? Shooting with the peeps at Seventeen is always nonstop fun!
For the May issue I did makeup only - too many high maintenance teens to do on my own... I kid.
Our models: Sage [my daughter] and two of her expat brat friends and some other local lovelies from Singapore.
Nails were done by Yani from Serendipity.
Makeup by Andrea Claire (moi)
Hair by Reds (who knew they were such a big chain!)
Styling by Alisa Chopard
- In the mag: a button nose makeup tip says that I say to 'use Espresso by MAC on the sides of the nose to make it more prominent'. OOPSY! I didn't say this and you would never use Espresso on the nose; if you did you would have 2 dark lines. I said 'bronzer or foundation 1-2 shades darker than your skin will have a slimming/shaping effect when applied to the sides of the nose and then finish with a highlight on the bridge of the nose.'
- One of our models changed her makeup ever-so-slightly. *SIGH. She added more mascara and black liner which made her lashes look clumpy and the black liner changed the look adding a smokiness and not just the pop colour that I was going for. I understand that if you are a 'real person' sometimes a makeup artist may do something out of your comfort zone; however, if you are a model it's your job to wear it. We aren't ogres. Well, maybe some are, but I'm not! Simply ask your makeup artist if she could do anything for your comfort zone - you see, if you change it you are messing with an artist's work and if it goes to print then you both look bad. I keep kicking myself for that slipping under my radar.
This red is the Givenchy Rouge lip pencil that I used on Chica in the montage above. The texture is very moist and it wears very well. I was amazed that it lasted all day on me without bleeding, not cheap though. $32 SGD
