I recently completed a course on Advanced Makeup at the fab Sessions school in London run by Dani Guinsberg. The Sessions School is a brillaint place to go and completley retrain in a new, exciting profession or like me, brush up my skills and learn something new. I happen to know that a few of the trainees have gone on to work backstage at fashion shows or even assist other top artists. While I was there I felt the course really opened up my eyes. We spent the majority of time on creative, catwalk, editorial makeup and also a masterclass in vintage, which was amazing. There are lots of vintage loving brides out there! But I had to return to do my final photo shoot and since I was being told to think outside the box and push it, I decided to go for a bollywood meets festival look for the final shoot. Indian Bridal makeup is an art I'm enthralled with, but I rarely get to do, so Dani gave me Anjana, the model below, who was totally perfect for what I was going for. Her skin was gleaming and I concentrated on big, defined eyes, using black, golds and glitter. Then I applied the jewls to form a traditonal Bindi, which is popular with festival goers aswell. I think this look would work beautifully on many different skin tones.

Then lastly, Dani asked if I would do another model, the lovely Samara, who was there to model hair for one of the hair student's final looks. I discussed it with Hannah, the hair stylist and as she was going for this lovely sweeping updo, we decided to keep the makeup fresh, a little bridal, but also a look that would work for red carpet and proms. It was lovely to focus on her skin and make her look glowy and fresh. Both were stunning girls and I'm so happy to have this on my portfolio!
