I kept the look clean and minimalist, using light washes of Giorgio Armani Designer Shaping Cream Foundation.  The best thing about this foundation apart from it's satin-silk finish is the fact it is SPF20, just the thing you'd need in the electric jungle!

My direction was to make Gana to look radiant whilst exploring through her magical jungle land, naturally groomed and effortless.

I contoured Gana's incredibly structured cheekbones using lightly applied Tom Ford's Shade and Illuminate.

I combined MAC's "Petting Pink" and "Fuchsia" Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF15 to provide Gana with a slightly wet, full looking pout.

I painted the nails using OPI "San Tan Tonio", a firm favourite of mine.  It is a warm-beige shade without bordering into pinks, like that of cafe latte, and would suit deep ebony skin right through to milky white.  This shade looks best twice-applied over one layer of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, to be finished with OPI Topcoat.

It's always exciting to work with a collection you genuinely love.. I am still hoping for that blue bag in the top left hand corner (http://www.beasweet.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/kenzo-sneaky-prev.html)
