SCMP Haute Couture

I had the wonderful opportunity of going to Paris to shoot a Couture story for SCMP with Photographer Jeff Hahn and Stylist Simone Konu, I was thrilled to be surrounded by Chanel Haute Couture, Armani Prive, Maison Martin Margiela, Schiaparelli Haute Couture and Giambattista Valli Haute Couture!

We got the cover of the magazine too which is always a welcome reward to hard efforts.

Makeup -
I used a selection of golds and pinks to create Kirsi's frosted pink-gold eyes, including -
MAC Pressed eye-shadow in shades "Swish" and "Da Bling" - http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/products/spp/shaded.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CAT154&PRODUCT_ID=PROD363&SKU_ID=SKU1679
Her lips were a mix of several shades of LipMix by MAC, available at PRO stores.

Nails -
I used a shade called "Quarter of a Cent-Cherry" by OPI which is now unfortunately discontinued, but they do stock a similar come-hither crimson called "Chick Flick Cherry", a beautiful opaque creme colour.  It can be found here on OPI's UK-based website retailing at £11.95 for a full size 15ml bottle - http://www.opiuk.com/store/burgendies/chick-flick-cherry
