The Tribe Make-up Shoot: Botanical Brights

Here are the pictures from the make-up shoot I organised and directed for The Tribe┬álast week. The beautiful pictures were taken by Bailey Roberts – take a look at her Facebook page for more of her gorgeous shots. She’s moving back to America soon and her talent will be sorely missed in St Andrews. Thanks so much for doing this shoot for us Bailey! A big thanks also to gorgeous model Laura Watson who looked absolutely stunning in the make-up looks the talented make-up artist Olivia Mackay created. All in all a great shoot that we pulled off really speedily as everyone was so focused and professional.

The theme of the shoot itself was something that came to me recently and I was itching to create; I wanted to focus on the statement bright lips make-up trend that was all over the S/S catwalks (think Jil Sander matching neon pink lips and skirts) as well as strong brows. I wanted to have a bit of a floral theme to accentuate the brights, St Andrews Botanical Gardens were the perfect location with tropical flowers and exotic colours in the sweltering green houses. Ever organised a shoot in a green house? Adds an interesting element of sweatiness… Beautiful flowers really made the coloured lips pop, just look at how the shade of purple seems to change when next to different flowers – from a light magenta pink-purple through to deepest mauve. Congrats ladies on a wonderful shoot and thank you all again.
