So it had to happen sooner or later. Having fun with clothes is always behind ever beauty shoot because I love the combination of makeup and clothes, I love how they play off each other. Working with Mathilde, I focused on clothes and explored the relationship between background, clothes and minimal beauty.
I got an e-mail to work with Mathilde, a new face from Dulcedo models here in Montreal. I noticed right away her long lean figure. She has a great face, but it’s not a “beauty face”. Some models have a lot of real-estate for makeup, but Mathilde’s face hold it’s own with it’s strong, structured canvas. I did a Gisèle inspired makeup with some glowy and sculpted bronzer, I love using the Givenchy Face powder for that, it’s got a nice soft application and the color works with more red skintones. For eyes I started using my newly bought Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. I used a lip pencil by Lise Watier called Vintage, all over the lips, and I used Stone by M.A.C to line and define.
I had in mind just to do one portrait and then do some street stylings by combining some of my own wardrobe with hers. For the outside shots, I just toned down the makeup by brushing off and blending in most of it, for a super natural, but healthy look.
