It has taken me a few years now to have the confidence to say on a shoot, when and where appropriate, that I didn’t feel that there was any need at all for makeup. Nada, niente, nothing at all and it certainly doesn’t happen very often. Here is one of my very favourite images that I worked on for 10 magazine. The photographer is Paul Wetherell The stylist is Lucy Ewing and the model is Zuzana Gregorova. The clothes were full on with a powerful strong impact, the light was good old natural daylight in a dusty location and I went with my gut instinct and felt that it was just cooler without makeup. I liked that the model had some dark shadows around her eyes. Don’t we all? So if you want to try this on yourself or on someone else then make sure that the face is cleansed hydrated and moisturised. Curl those lashes and comb those brows and pop on a little matte lip balm on the lips. Do nothing perfectly.
