THU THU SS13 Campaign


I worked on the Campaign for ThuThu SS13 Collection.  I did both Makeup and Hair for the beautiful Avery Tharp @ Next.








I kept her hair soft and natural, creating a gentle wave throughout the front sections.

I delicately shaded Avery's eyelids using Chanel's Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Shade "Safari", and plumped her lips with a hint of Bobbi Brown's Lip Balm SPF15.

Art Direction: Mat Maitland.
Direction: Smith & Read / Mat Maitland

Production: Alastair Coe at Big Active
Makeup: Bea Sweet
Hair: Kota Suizu
Model: Gana Bayarsaikhan @ Profile
Music: 'M├Ądchen Amick' by Buffalo Tide






















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)

Preen AW13 London Fashion Week - Val Garland

I had the absolute pleasure of assisting Val Garland @ Streeters for Preen AW13 at London Fashion Week.

The look was a super simple, graphic eyeliner, kept clean and minimalist.  A steady hand is recommended for this one.

“Delicate punk ” is how makeup artist Val Garland described the mood at Preen this morning. Gray powder eye shadow was mixed with water to create a liquid liner, which was drawn in a sharp diagonal line on either the upper or lower lid. ‘It’s quite painterly and graphic,” explains Garland, who used an artist’s brush to create the precise look."
