Girl Crush Clemence

26 Jan 2012 - Share →

The first time I worked with Clemence Poesy a few years ago I thought she was just the bee’s knees. Something about the easy Parisian style, delicate colouring and twinkle in her eye. I've seen Clemence quite a bit recently, doing her make-up for this shoot and then bumping into her again last week as she was in town promoting Birdsong. Almost twenty years since it was first published, Sebastian Faulks book has finally been made into a film for the BBC starring Eddie Redmayne and Clemence. I missed the first installment of this epic tale so need to have a big catch up session on i-player as soon as possible! Did any of you see it?

This very cute shoot for UK Glamour focused on a palette of candy coloured, girly dresses so I didn’t want to get too saccharin with the make-up. Working with her natural colouring of golden skin, icy blue eyes and that incredible 'cafe au lait' blonde mane I mixed my pinks with warm golden peach highlights and added natural 'just bitten' effect stained lips.Some of the products used to create her look:

Chantercaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser in Glow

Clinique Airbrush Concealer in 04

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal

Chanel Eyeshadow Quartet in Kasia Beige (mainly the medium golden tone with touches or the medium brown shade along the lash line and underneath. The lightest highlighter shade was also used at the inner corner and browbone)

No7 Vital Brights Cream Blusher in Blossoming Pink for cheeks

Eyeko Skinny Brush in Black

Bobbi Brown Rouge Pot Pink Truffle as a stain on the lips

Mac Face and Body Make-up in C3 for legs (in was cold that day!)
