Billie Turnbull for Please - Wig




I was commissioned to make a Courtney Love inspired wig for PLEASE Magazine for Billie Turnbull to wear.

I looked back at old Courtney references again, and created a wig with her trademark deliberately un-done tousled hair. I kept the fringe long, messy and naturally moveable, so as Billie moves, the fringe does too.

I cut the wig to the length that Courtney's hair sometimes reaches, and I also dyed in some secret yellow and orangey parts, that only really show when photographed under flash lighting. This helps to give variation between the shots on film taken with natural light, and the shots taken on film with flash.

I finished the wig with some dry shampoo to give the ends of the hair that bleach-messed look.

I am really feeling girly metallics at the moment so this is the result of my metallic crush.

Billie Turnbull for Please - Makeup Looks






Here are some close-up crops of the makeup looks I did for Billie Turnbull in PLEASE Magazine, shot by Saga Sig and styled by John William.

I wanted the skin to be dewy, fresh and clean with messy sexy eyes, layers of thick jet black mascara, like Billie had just been re-applying mascara for days. The look was Courtney Love inspired, so I looked at old Courtney references and her trademark smudgey, hot look and red lips.

Bethany Terry Memories






I was going through old editorials and came across this one of Bethany Terry, originally for theones2watch. I really liked the makeup I got to do that day, so I thought I'd show some of the beauty looks close up.
