Get the look – Cutler and Gross

6 copyThis shoot is the spring/summer 14 campaign for British eyewear brand Cutler and Gross. It was a lovely day in an amazing house with some very nice cakes!

The make-up was simple – just gorgeous, fresh clean skin. I used a little bit of brown liner along the lash line to add some definition to the eyes along with some soft shadow. For a lot of the shots (most in fact I think!) the eyes are covered, that’s what you get for working with sunglasses (!!), therefore the lips become the important feature from a make-up point of view. I used Bang Bang by Ilia Beauty, a really wearable red and one of my favourite shades from the brand.  It is a lip conditioner rather than a lipstick so sheerer in colour, but you can build it up to quite a strong look. It was perfect for the shoot because it worked really well with all of the frames, it enhanced without competing for attention.

Bang Bang is a great red to try if you want to give colour a go but are a bit apprehensive. You can wear it really sheer and then build it up as you become more confident with it. I’ve featured it on here before, as it has become a staple in my personal make-up bag as well as in my kit.
