Dita von Teese Hologram

I tweeted this a while back, but I want it here forever.

Tu-pac didn’t get me excited – but a hologram strip-tease where her clothes flutter away like gemstones, a celebration of the very sexual feminine power Louboutin evokes through his shoes… #yesplease

Snow White’s Apple

“Snow White” and I have a few things in common – we both have red lips, pale skin, black hair – (ok mine is arguably brown but naturally black) both frolic in the forest, sing to animals and have terrible luck with apple’s.

This year I’ve managed to have a macbook pro stolen from under my table while I ate dinner at a restaurant, an iPhone4 smash and grabbed from my car (insert additional window replacement cost) and two Saturday’s ago my second iPhone4 – this one a 32gig model – was stolen from my handbag in a London club…

The frequency of stranger’s referring to me as Snow White coupled with this recent “apple curse” (through cruel twists of fate, circumstance and my own stupidity insurance has not assisted me with replacing any of these products) as my nearest and dearest are calling it  has led me to do… [ Read more ]

Boudoir Shoot with Noel Tosefsky – Round 1

I’ve been slacking off on blogging shoots – and although many of you probably “like” my facebook page ~ thank you for the support – I’m really honored ~ and have probably seen many of the images I’ll be posting over the next few weeks, I think that a lot of the images on the page deserve a place on the site. I can honestly say I have learnt something with every shoot I have done, and I am so grateful for the wonderful people I have been privileged to work with.

This shoot was Neal’s first boudoir shoot. I met Neal through Robyn early 2010 and through twitter and the #27dinners we became friends.

Neal enjoys taking photographs, and I enjoy being in photographs so he decided to bring me on board to tackle his first boudoir shoot and first shoot with someone there with… [ Read more ]

Kass is one of the best swimsuit photographers in our pretty city, so I wanted to make the most of this little test shoot we did for Claudi. I picked gold as my theme and accent, working with various hues and levels of reflection in the make-up. First I smoothed her skin with MAC’s Studio Finish Foundation. Then I contoured her face with a combination of Mac’s Sculpt and Shape powders, MAC’s loose Golden Bronze shimmer powder and Mineralise Skinfinish in Shimpagne and Shooting Star. I started on Claudi’s eyes by applying a thin layer of Guerlain Ombre Eclat Eye Shadow Primer - (which happens to be the BEST eye-primer I have ever laid my hands on) and then I shaded a traditional beauty eye using pigments for shimmer and MAC’s eye-shadows in “beauty marked”, “bronze” and “espresso“. I lined her eyes with” smoulder” eye kohl, smudged them with MAC’s #219… [ Read more ]

Looking Through the Window at Life

This is a photograph extracted from Anton De Beer’s “Bridal Boudoir” series.

“Looking though the window at life. You look amazing to me” is the title given to this photograph by the model, Kira Wilkinson. Kira and I shared a chalet whilst touring Jo-Burg with Madame Zingara and when she finally returned back from the UK I felt privileged to finally work with her on a test. I really love the ambiance of this photograph, the lighting, the reflections in the glass and the neutral colour palette. I hope to work with this team again soon!

Main Make-up ingredients: MAC: Face and Body in C6, brow-gel in clear,  eyeshadows in “brule”, “embark”, “cork” and “shroom”, technakohl liner in “graphblack”.

Pro Tip: When you’re applying your make-up with a clean, natural or matt look in mind use a non-reflective eye-shadow like MAC’s “brule” and then apply a colour like “shroom”[ Read more ]

My favorite of Rob's experiment with cross polarized lighting

Robert had a very interesting lighting setup for this shoot. He placed Polarization filters over his beauty box in order to block out “hot spots” and experiment withcross polarized lighting.
