In model Zoe’s first look Nicola from Honey & Violet added a plum hue to her crease bone, adding an ilamasqua black gel liner. She finished with NYX soft matte lipstick and added a pink blush to her cheeks. Lisa from Honey & Violet set Zoe’s hair into small to medium GHD curls, backcombing at the roots.
Nicola added a pop of peach blusher and a touch of highlight to Zoe’s cheeks. She used copper tones on the eye with added brown hues to the outer corners. For the lips she used Urban Decay‘s ˜rush’ lipliner and ˜naked’ lipgloss. For Zoe’s crown braid Lisa took a centre parting, pleated two bunches and secured then up the side of her head with kirbies.
To create a natural glow Nicola used MAC Fix spray and mixed MAC Strobe Cream with Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, contouring with Urban Decay Naked skin concealer. She used Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to create a shimmering glow with a MAC copper eyeshadow. She used brown gel eyeliner close to the lashes and Maybelline mascara. Nicola used a MAC ˜Crosswires’ lipstick with a pop of gold eyeshadow in the middle of her lip to create a simple ombre lip.
Lisa used the vertical GHD curl method, then brushed through with her fingers to loosen and roughen up the hair. She added some extra random pleats underneath for an extra bohemian feel.
Natalie of Natalie Mackenzie Makeup Artist created model Lucy’s base with MAC Prep and Prime and then MAC Prep and Prime BB foundation. For eyes, she used ˜Steady’ from Urban Decay and highlighted the crease with a soft brown. She contoured with Charlotte Tilbury. Film Star ˜Bronze and Glow’ and finished with MAC ˜Full Fushia’ blush and went over Lucy’s lips with Anastasia Beverly Hills ˜Undressed’.
Natalie used Two Faced Chocolate Bar palette’s ˜Mousse’ in the crease before adding the darker ˜Cocoa Chilli’. She created a subtle flick with the gel liner and went back over the eye with a pigment MAC Reflects in Gold. The lips were lined with Laura Mercier Hazelnut Tea and Raspberry Ripple for the lips.
Natalie prepped Lucy’s skin with Weleda Skin Food before using a Laura Mercier primer and NARS ˜Sheet Glow’ foundation. She then used Clarins instant concealer under her eyes and set everything with Laura Mercier powder. For Lucy’s eyes Natalie started with NYX jumbo pencil and then shaded the lids with ˜blonde’ from Urban Decay. She highlighted the inner crease with Make-Up Geek in ˜Mocha’ before adding a gel liner winged look. For the dramatic lip she lined with Maxfactor ˜red rush’ and then Bobbi Brown ˜red.’
For hair, Holly of AMM Hair and Make-up Team made a deep side parting before going over it with a wand and pin curling up as she went. She brushed out the curls and backcombed the front.

For Maggie’s base, Annie Voigt Make-up Artist contoured the skin using Motives Photo Finish pressed powder in ˜Tan.’ For eyes, she used the ˜Activist’ and ˜Smokeshow’ tones from Tarte. For lips, Annie used MAC Viva Glam ˜Ariana Grande’ for a deep lip. For Maggie’s hair Holly brushed out waves and backcombed the crown before securing the floral crown.
This look is all about dewy radiance. Annie highlighted Maggie’s cheekbones with Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer and swept MAC Pigment powder in Old Gold on the lids to make her eyes glimmer. A nude lip, using Motives Rich Fornula Lipstick in Half and Half, finished the look. For the elegant half-up half-down hair, Holly divided the hair into really small sections and used a T3 styling wand to create tight curls.

To create this stunning up-do, Holly added volume with the T3 wand on the tight barrel. She lightly backcombed the crown of Maggie’s hair, secured it halfway and rolled it up in a loose, romantic chignon, smoothing with oil to tame flyaways and add shine. The romance continued with the makeup; Annie used the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom palette; a mixture of Sweetheart, Rebel and Leader through the crease, and Funny Girl for the shimmery inner corner. For a pretty glow, Annie applied Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Bang.
