Sneak peek at yesterday's shoot!

I thought I'd occasionally share with you some of my professional work, to get an idea of what it's like to work as a professional MUA.  And I'm always happy to answer questions about my career, so ask away!

I had the pleasure of working with a great team yesterday - our photographer was Chris Fatseas, with whom I've worked with five times previously.  I don't work with someone that many times if they're not amazing!  His assistant and friend Matyas came along as always to lend a hand and tell wild stories.  The model was Emma, whose gorgeous skin just made my day.  And for the first time I had a designer on the shoot - Anna Peng, whose dresses made me ooh and aah all day.  She's only a student, so expect to hear a lot more from her!!

The weather was overcast and drizzly, our locations had to be changed halfway through the shoot and for a few minutes we thought we had to pull the shoot after only 2 of the 5 outfits!  But the weather held out, and with some last-minute location scouting it all came together.  Can't wait to see the pro images!

This dress was amazing - the fabric in the skirt was 50% silk, 50% metal so it was able to hold its rounded shape on its own.  Amazing.

And this was my favourite piece - just stunning.  She was up in a railway carriage and I was on the ground, so excuse the angle!

Will show you the pro results when they come through  :)
