The October Issue: Behind The Scenes Beauty

by Olivia Keating
14th Sep 2015

IMAGE October

This October issue’s fashion shoot is all about classic winter staples with a luxurious embellishment. We asked our make up artist extraordinaire, Mary-Ellen Darby, to dissect the slick autumnal beauty look so that you can do it yourself. This is our behind the scenes guide to perfecting the look.

?Summer isn’t the only time for glowing skin! I kept the base and eyes in this look pared back for a cool, modern elegance. Playing up the highlight on the cheekbones against a rich red lip gives an edgy take on a traditional seasonal favourite.?

?Use Chanel’s Vitalumi’re foundation (?45) to create a great base.?
