Glitter Glam is one of my favourite personal projects, it is a series of colourful body painting shoots involving body/face paints, airbrush makeup, glitter and gems, inspired by my love of colour and all things super creative. I’ve been dreaming about doing this project for a long time and I’m so glad I managed to organise the shoot before I head off to Rio! I’d like to thank my fabulous and brave models Kate Healing, Nicola Hayes, Jasmin Pritchard, Roxanne Male and Stuart Hollywood. They totally embraced the concept and even helped apply the body paint. No doubt Stuart had nothing to complain about…
Glitter Glam is by far the most creative shoot to date and I’m so proud of the results. I used snazaroo face and body paints as a base coat and my dinair airbrush kit to contour, studs and of course glitter in each body design.
Please enjoy these pictures edited by my trusted retoucher Ryan Lea. There are also some behind the scenes photos showing how I applied the makeup.
Second time around, I collaborated with the talented Tawny Wright to bring my creative vision to life so the hair would be as imaginative as the bodypainting designs. I was overjoyed with the final results and I particularly love the use of the bright coloured brilo pads used on Emma in the pokadot design.
In total we spent 9 hours creating the looks, my models were so patient and it was a really fun day. Please enjoy this behind the scenes video by the amazing Simon Mawson showing how these looks were created.
