Katie got in touch with me as she was confident I could help her with the natural Boho- Vintage makeup style she was after to compliment her beautiful natural red curls. We decided on a fresh palette of champagne, nude, peach and brown with a strong focus on the skin. Having accentuated Katie’s fantastic cheekbones and highlighted accordingly I set about creating a subtle contoured 1920’s style defined eye.
We held Katie’s trial in South West London, originally she wanted to do her own hair but after discussing what kind of head piece she would be going for, her natural modern- vintage makeup style palette we were going to be using, this beautiful and bespoke Kat Swank number she decided her beautiful red curls should be pampered too!
Clarins and Burt’s Bees were to hand for a pink flush on the lips. For Katie’s hair I finger brushed her gorgeous natural curls, creating some volume at the top, I then fitted the head piece and built pin curls around to disguise the band. The hair then flowed naturally into a low side ponytail.
