Lara Mullen for SLEEK Magazine

I worked as the Makeup Artist for this beautiful story for Sleek Magazine, photographed by Jeff Hahn and styled by Katy Lassen.

This story was to be shot in black and white, so the focus in the makeup was to be on tone and texture as opposed to colour, so I opted to bring a cool-chic to Lara's facial physique by giving her a simple black outlined lip using a few of my favourite blacks from MAC, including - 
A kohl pencil that has all the intensity and colour power of ultra-soft carbon.  Specially formulated to provide deep, fully opaque coverage, providing an intense, smoked finish with duo-chrome pearl.
This liner is great as it can blend and smudge just as easily as it can hold a straight line, so it is perfect for nodding to the Chola-esque outline where the outside edge needs to have a sharp edge and the inside edge should ideally blend lightly into the natural lip shade.

MAC Cosmetics Creamsheen Glass in shade "Jet Boy", but grab it quick, it's Limited Edition! -
A lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of MAC Lipglass.  Soft, comfortable, non-sticky.  Use as a top layer to it's namesake Lipstick or on it's own.
