Here are images from a story in the new issue of Vogue Japan which I did the make up for photographed by Katja Rahlwes, styling by Sissy Vian and hair by Luke Hersheson featuring the gorgeous Anja Rubik. We shot this story in a house in Marbella where the owner had based all the decor on Arabian Nights, it was like being in a fantasy Disney film come to life full of gilded furniture with big china tigers. For the make up I kept it very naturally bohemian with a light glowing tan and lots of defined eyelashes. If you’re tanning at home the best way to prep skin is to make sure it’s properly exfoliated and hydrated a couple of hours before you apply, try using a body scrub such as Arcona Fruit Enzyme Body Scrub and then moisturising with a light body moisturiser such as This Works Enjoy Multitasking Lotion. For a natural tan that goes on smoothly try using Xen Tan Deep Bronze or for a more instant and easily removable tan St Tropez’s Wash Off Glow Mousse does the trick. To create the same light tan on the face I used Chanel’s Soleil de Tan lightly buffed into the skin with a large soft brush. To compliment this healthy glow I kept the rest of the make up light and natural, penciling in the brows with Tom Ford Brow Sculptor and adding in highlights with MAC’s Strobe Cream. Eyelashes were curled with a Shu Uemura eyelash curler and the multiple coats of MAC’s Haute and Naughty Mascara in Black were added to give volume and definition to the lashes. Finally just a slick of NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment in Lara on the lips kept them moisturised with a soft peachy tint.
