I did deliciously gorgeous Sophie Dahls make for the red carpet recently. The event was the Ark Ball in London, a very glamorous and high profile fundaraising event which this year was also attended by Wiliam & Kate. Sophie recently became a mum so I haven't seen much of her as she and Jamie have been spending lots of family time together in the country with their beautiful baby daughter.
Sophie is one of the sweetest people I have had the good fortune to work with over the past ten years. She also has a wicked sense of humour and a mischievious streak, so lots of fun to be had.
For this event we decided to keep the make-up very rosy and pretty with a little drama around the eyes. The red carpet was early so the make-up needed to look good in bright daylight (not overdone) but also translate to the evening and flash photography.
The products I used were:
Chanel - Vita Lumiere Aqua in 10 - perfect light coverage with a velvet finish
Fushion Beauty - IllumiCover Smoothing Concealer in Pale
Dior's Rosy Tan 5 colour palette - I used the pale pink shade all over the lid and then used the deepest purpley brown shade buffed into the socket line and soflty along the lower lash line (starting 2/3rds of the way along). Finishing with the palest shimmer pink at the brow bone
Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Plum Ink - along the upper lash line and flicked slightly at the outer corner
Max Factor - False Lash Effect Mascara in Black
Suqqu - Brow powder palette
RMK - Sheer Powder Cheeks in 03 Rose
No7 Lip Pencil in Nude
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy
