IN FASHION


Hair


To achieve a stylish look for this Essex Life fashion shoot, I firstly blow-dried the hair with a big round brush to give volume and a smooth shiny finish. I then gave a stronger curl all through the hair with straightening irons, using Goldwell Twist Around - especially designed to work with hot curling tools. The hair can be left loose with bouncy natural curls or pinned over to one shoulder. To add elegance and create that not tonight Josephine look you can pin the curls higher just leaving a few tendrils to fall softly. Make the look last all day with Goldwell Magic Finish, giving a natural hold with brilliant shine. Spending a little time at the beginning to get the hair ribbon smooth and curled helps to achieve a very versatile look.

Make Up


To achieve a feminine, glamorous and chic look for this Essex Life fashion shoot, I firstly prepped the skin with Sothys Complexion Perfector (RRP34) this beautiful silky soft product visibly reduces the appearance of pores giving a great base for the Hydroptimale Thi3 Foundation (RRP27.50) a tinted hydrating cream foundation for an even complexion. Our models eyes were achieved by just using a cream eye base and a fabulous Sothys Khol liner (RRP16). Of all the Khol pencils I have ever used in my 30 years of experience, this has been by far the best. It has jojoba oils for a soft touch and micronised powders to smooth on easily. The whole smoky eye chic has been created with just this. You can define the line and also smooth and blend. For the lips I used Sothys ultra shiny long-lasting gloss in Glossy Prune with vitamin E (RRP 18). The whole look is quick and easy with a light touch of the fabulous Khol able to turn a daytime look to a more dramatic chic ideal for the evening.
