When Essex Life called in the girls from the Pin-Up For Heroes calendar to model for its lingerie fashion shoot, three local hair and make up specialists were on hand to <br/><br/>offer their expertise. Here, they share their secrets of success

The art of seduction

Make-up on Bianca
For the Essex Life lingerie shoot, featuring the girls from the Pin Up For Heroes calendar, I looked after the make-up for Bianca Rackham. To achieve a sumptuous appearance, I wanted to emphasise the models eyes with a smokey, smouldering look using Bobbi Brown Sparkle Glamour Quad and finishing a stunning transformation with false lashes. To create flawless-looking skin I applied a Mac Foundation followed by a setting powder. This was then complemented with a series of neutral lip colours, from Bobbi Browns Shimmering Gloss Palette, which were chosen to pick out the tones of each outfit.

Make-up on Helen
Working on the Essex Life lingerie fashion shoot was a great opportunity to sprinkle the Pin-Up For Heroes girls with a touch of glamour and sophistication. With the make-up choices I was aiming to create an elegant yet seductive look starting with Mac Foundation and an illuminator for an envious glow. I dusted the eyelids with a soft shimmery pink, followed by a deep brown shadow smudged along the lash line. This helped to emphasise the models eyes and the addition of false lashes completed the sultry look. Using a baby pink Mac powder blush on the apple of the cheeks added an extra youthful feel.

Hair for both models
On the Essex Life fashion shoot, I wanted to create a sexy seductive look to complement the lingerie, so I used soft curls created by FHI straighteners. I also lifted some hair off the models face to complement the face and make-up. Each model wore a look with their hair pulled back from their face as well as a look where the hair was allowed to fall across their face slightly, in a seductive manner.
