Today we spent ALL day shooting a beauty editorial for LOOK magazine. I thought I would give a description and upload some photos of what happens behind the scenes, so you can all have a taste of just how much work goes into those 3 or 4 pages you scan in the mag.
9:30am was starting time and we all had a quick chat about what the day would entail while eating our catered breakfast consisting of a selection of breads, cured meat, cheeses and lattes. Over the next 4 hours, the brilliant makeup artist and hair Queen created 2 different looks for our goddess of the day, while we watched the screen where the photos were shown, saying “ohhhh… ahhhh” until the editor was happy with an image.
1:30pm: Lunch already?!?! We had an amazing Christmas lunch with stuffed Turkey, Pigs in Blankets, Buttered Carrots, Brussels Sprouts with roasted Chestnuts, Roasted Potato and Parsnip and fresh Cranberry sauce and Gravy. YUM!!! The only thing missing was mulled wine. Over the next 3 hours we shot the ‘How to’ page and a final look – by far my favourite of the day… oh and did I mention I loved the hair style so much I got my hair done as well? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
