Bright Eyes, Glossy Lips Feat. Lindsey Wixson

I have a major crush on Lindsey Wixson right now so couldn't resist posting this gorgeous film featuring the beauty herself. Lindsay is the sweetest girl and doing her make-up felt a bit like painting the face of a beautiful doll (took me back to my 'Girls World' days...for those of you who remember this ancient toy!)  Kansas born Wixson was selected by Steven Miesel at just 15 for an Italian Vogue shoot and shortly after shot to fame when she opened the Prada Show. With two campaigns for Miu Miu as well as Alexander McQueen, Versace and Jill Stuart under her belt, its safe to say this girl is flying!

Because we were shooting stills for the magazine and moving image at the same time I had to make sure the make-up looked equally good for both - there's no re-touching on magazine editorial moving image! I think this is something all make-up artists who work in fashion and magazines are having to get used to now. Most shoots I do these days involve some element of moving image... whether it be for the magazine or brands website or for youtube/apps. I love it, as I've been having a huge love affair with moving image and fashion film for quite a while now.

I really loved the hair, styling and nails on this shoot. The hair was courtesy of James Pecis, who has the cutest (and most practical) habit of using playing cards to hold the hair in place in between shots as it stops the clips from causing a kink in the hair and is better than tissue - incase you were wondering! James recently created a youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/jpecis) and I'm hoping he will start uploading films regularly as he's super talented, charming and one of my favourite hairdressers to work with.

The fabulous glitter nails complemented the make-up perfectly and were deftly created by nail supremo Sophy Robson, who's blog (www.sophyrobson.com) is THE place to go for anyone who takes their nails and nail art seriously.

I've listed all the main products I used for each shot below and if you have an iPad, treat yourself to the App. Seriously, if like me you love moving image and fashion you will love the contributions from photography legend Patrick Demarchelier as well as Josh Olins and Tom Craig.
