Phoenix

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd post and analyse an old look i created from my days in college.  It's part of the Earth Angels collection in which I create looks influenced by mythical creatures from folklore.  This look is based on a phoenix.  I used contrasting warm tones on the eyes and lips on an ash foundation base to create a strong editorial look.  I also used strong lines on the eyes and brows to give the model strength in her head shot.  The hair was swept up and pinned down the sides and placed with pins to imitate a Mohawk effect. Although this edgy look embodies more of a theatrical element, if striped to a bare minimal makeup and hair techniques it would make a perfect wearable look for autumn/winter.

Thanks for reading, keep an eye out for new looks and more product reviews!!!
