About a month ago I had the pleasure of working with Katie Laura on a shoot testing out her new coloured gels. The colour Katie went for on shoot was blue which looked amazing with our model Aimee’s pink hair.
The shoot had more of an editorial feel in which Katie added in hints of reusable plastic. This is an important issue and recycling and re-using plastic where possible is definitely something that everyone should be more aware of. It would be great to eventually not use plastic, however there is so much of it that recycling and re-using instead of buying new is a great step towards addressing the issue.
I feel Katie and I are very similarly minded in what we both wish to create and achieve from a shoot. I created a very subtle, fresh makeup for the first look with pink eyes and lips to match with Aimee’s hair.
The second look was a black smokey eye... but not as you’d expect. I created a very moody, messy feel to the eye and feel this turned out perfectly in contrast to the blue gels used and the feel of the shoot.
Aimee is always amazing to work with and always looks great on camera. It was such a small group and quick shoot but I feel we really did pull off exactly what we wanted and I love the finished photos.
