New make-up trends for spring/summer were presented at fashion photo shoot in Sunderland.
The photo shoot for fashion journalism student Toni Lawrence’s, 20, magazine project was based on seven deadly sins and was inspired by previous fashion weeks, especially Paris Haute Couture fashion week.
“All the girls are wearing a plain black T-shirt so I’ve decided to pay all the attention to the make-up,” said Toni Lawrence who was the photographer and one of the models as well.
This season is dominated by fresh, bright and synthetic make up colours. Dior fashion house offers to decorate the face with little shiny crystals.
“We’ve tried to recreate bright diamond look as seen at Dior but instead of using crystals for lips, we used colourful sprinkles for cupcakes,” says one of the models, Coral McQuillan, 21.
Shiny diamond magic influenced Toni Lawrence to put little crystals on other model Megan Flaherty’s, 21, cheekbones.
Smoky eyes make-up and red lips – this dramatic image was perfect for not less dramatic sin – wrath. A few seasons earlier, bright red lips perfectly stuck on the runway and on the streets. Therefore, the following season the red lipstick remains a key make-up trend. It was on almost all catwalks including D&G, Missoni, Akris, Prada, Rochas, Paul Smith, Jonathan Saunders, Jean Paul Gaultier and others.
The inspiration for “envy” part of photo shoot was Linda Cantello’s created make-up. Sharp lines and bright green created 50s look as seen at Armani. Toni Lawrence put fake eye-lashes (as seen at Gucci, Moschino and Jean Paul Gaultier) on both of the models.
“This make-up is more suitable for evening or special occasions. However, it is essential to have at least one extravagant make-up tool this season,” said Rachael Jordan, 20.
