going on all these shoots, i have certainly learned a few tips with make up – i certainly dont know where to start, but increasingly i see what the professionals use. a big favourite is laura mercier for complexions -the primer definitely gives you an all over radiant glow, the tinted moisturiser for a natural glow with a hint of coverage, the multi minerals powder to get rid of the shine, but still look luminous and natural, both armani and mac for eye colours as they have great colours and lasting power, llamasqua for lips – perfect reds and strong lasting colour, paul and joe for pretty colours and pretty containers, stila for blush and concealer. my favourite red lipstick is by shu uemura – its moisturising as well as loaded with colour and for a red lip stain, lipstick queen has a great deep red crayon, which is easy to put on quickly. always a classic, chanel has beautiful shades of red lipstick – especially to go with your 1940’s dresses. a beautiful deep shade of red lipstick, is black dahlia by Tom Ford – all his make up is not only beautiful to use, but in great packaging too, but pricey .
loved these wooden paddles that you decorated at one of the temples in Kyoto to wish for beauty!
