Monday blues…

Today I had a shoot set with Pavli for her upcoming magazine issue.

The clothing was a collaboration between Pavli and Martina Spiteri a local and extremely talented designer who goes by the name Celeste. Its a  fun collection with a pop art theme and bold bright colours.

When Pavli asked me to do the make up for today’s shoot and I asked what theme she told me she wanted to keep it fresh. Looking at a few magazines over the weekend I got hit by the colour Blue.

So today when Pavli asked me what colour I had chosen there was no question I needed to add a pop of colour and blue was the exact way I wanted to do it. One of the things I really love about working with Pavli is that she trusts my ability and colour choices. I know that blue can sound shocking to most people and the colours I had on the table was bright.

I mixed up hues of gold and blue, using a summer edition palette from Estee Lauder and a colour from Loreal, and some of my favourite make up essentials…
