Featured Artist: Lucy

We love to feature our artists' freelance work and today I am thrilled to show you some of Lucy's, who works on our Selfridges Oxford St counter.

I absolutely love this editorial look. Lucy told me more about it:
"I started off by prepping the skin with Satin Primer [which I use for almost all the shoots I work on!] and followed that with Light Liquid Foundation and a touch of Cream Blusher in 'Dixie' low on the apples of the cheek for a tomboyish, wind-kissed look.

To open the eyes I added Medium Pencil in 'Vow' on the waterline and Volume Mascara to Alison's fantastic lashes. The lips that go so well with the model's gorgeous fair complexion were made up of a base of Lipstick in 'Poison' finished with a slick of Intense Lipgloss in my favourite shade, 'Repulse'.

This was a shot from work I regularly do with Nevs model agency and the fantastic photographer Lee Mofo [www.the-mofo.co.uk], whose recent clients include Firetrap, FrostFrench and 28twelve. We hold shoot days for the agency at my warehouse studio and often shoot up to 8 girls a day, so it's important to create strong, camera ready looks with minimal time and product. Illamasqua's huge colour range makes my job a lot easier, and needless to say my male flatmates never complain about having a house full of gorgeous models!"

  1. I can imagine it must be a nightmare for your flatmates having all those hotties around! ;)

    Love the lippy, also loving the lippy in the photo of Lucy. Is it possible to find out what that is?



  2. This is great! I love the lips, but I could never pull it off. Love to all at Illa!


We love to hear from you!
