A couple of weeks ago I styled a model for a Hollywood glamour and pinup shoot with Doug Monce. Tess had lovely, thick brown locks and gorgeous eyes--her looks really suit the 1940s--and she was a delight to work with!
For makeup, I used a mix of Ben Nye, MAC, and Yaby. On her eyes, I applied Ben Nye Santa Fe on the lid, Mink Stole in the crease, and Vanilla to highlight. A light dusting of Yaby Glazed Rose added a bit of shine and depth to the look. Her brows were filled in slightly with MAC Coquette, applied with an angle brush, and before applying false lashes (Ardell 102s), I applied a thin line of black gel liner (Inglot 90). On her cheeks I used Ben Nye Raspberry powder rouge, and I used MAC Red on her lips (which were lined with NYX Red.)
I helped with some of the wardrobe as well--for her first look, she wore a black satin nightgown trimmed with aqua bows, paired with a marabou stole and rhinestone jewelry. For her second look, she wore a 1980s-does 40s cocktail dress paired with a mink stole and more rhinestones. For her pinup looks, she wore a yellow 1940s-50s bathing suit and a red cherry tie top (made by Vee Vin Tage) paired with black sailor shorts made by Bettie Page Clothing; both outfits were worn with cherry jewelry from my collection.
I loved the way the shoot turned out--Tess looks like she was plucked straight from the pages of an old movie mag!
