LOUIS VUITTON MENSWEAR SHOOT FOR OBSERVER MAGAZINE
Here's another editorial that I have worked on recently for the Observer's Sunday Magazine - to work alongside an article they were writing about Louis Vuitton Menswear. Shot by Elliott Morgan, Styled by Helen Seamons Hair by Emily Kent and Makeup/Grooming by me!
Mens grooming can be tricky as you don't want any make up to show - however it is necessary to work a little bit of magic on the skin under the harsh flash of the photographers lights. It is very important to make sure brows are plucked without looking overly manicured and facial hair trimmed or wet-shaved as necessary.
To cleanse the skin I used Crealine by Bioderma followed by Kyoku Oil Control Lotion and Lip Fuel.
For a natural look I used Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20, Brow Definer and Matte Bronzer by Laura Mercier. For healthy hands I pushed back cuticles which had been softened with a drop of oil, gently filed the nails and used Almond Coconut Milk Hand Creme, again by Laura Mercier.
Hair Stylist Emily Kent used Bumble & Bumble hair products to give a sleek and sophisticated coiffure.
