So after working in Sweden I flew straight to Paris to rest up for the next day where I would be working for Lancome! It was my second time working with them so I was happy that I had impressed them the first time. Yesterday I was filming an online video on how to use one of their new products that will be coming out soon and let me tell you, view more about the edited video may only be a minutes long or less but they take ages to film- I finished at 9pm. There were several steps to the video with the first being a spot of hand modelling holding the product; my arm was aching! Shooting beauty products like this is very precise and technical work; your hand has to be at an exact angle, more about your facial expression is so readable they can basically see your thought on the HD screen and you have to repeat the routine many times! By the end of the day I had learned how to apply make-up with my fingers, sponge and brush the Lancome way and had a very achy back and arm! I enjoy shooting beauty products like this and would one day love to do a make-up campaign! One day ayy! I’ll try and find the first one of these videos I done for Lancome for you guys to see!

 

My view from my seat! one of the two cameras I’d be smiling in front of today.

Testing out colours; Lancome have some great colours for darker skin tones.

I popped into the Mac make-up store on Carnaby street and found this beautiful multi- tonal nail varnish called ‘Mean & Green’. I love dual tone nail varnishes and have a few so when I saw this I had to add it to my collection. I used a metallic purple by Barry M as the base colour as dual tone nail varnishes usually need a strong, click pill dark, unhealthy base colour to really pop. The only down side of this polish for me is that it is more of a combination of pink and gold as opposed to the green that the name suggested and even in the bottle it looks more green- I already have a colour very similar by models own called ‘Pinky Brown’. I’m going to try this polish with a metallic green base instead which will hopefully bring out the green accents in the polish. ‘Mean & Green’ costs £10 and is available from Mac.
