1920’s GATSBY SHOOT
1920’S Gatsby shoot.
I adored working on the Irish Wedding Diary Magazine/Waterford Castle shoot and in particular the Gatsby theme. All Headpieces by that amazing Cathy Throth, hair by Alison MccabeThe 1920’s was such a glamorous time as it came between two world wars, the mood was carefree and almost decadent. It gives us a good snapshot of a post-war society, also known as the Jazz age.
The freedom of the era gave me the scope to let loose and work with my fave products. We began shooting at 8am with little time during the day for foundation changes. When time is limited it is important to prep the skin well, and choose a foundation with proven longevity. After priming I chose Everlasting Foundation by Clarins which I knew would work well on Shauna’s skin.
1. Brown Script (a deep russet brown) in the socket area blended well and swooped under the eyes with a pencil brush. This brought out the electric blue in Shauna’s eyes.
2. MAC Shroom on lids and under brows so easy to do.
3. Nylon dabbed in the corner of the eyes to light them up.
4. Liquid Eyeliner and lashings of Clarins Black Mascara. Job done.
When packing for this shoot the first thing I reached for was Russian Red lipstick by MAC. It’s top of my pops when it comes too red lippy, and lips played a leading role in the show. Our model was Shauna Lindsey #armodelagency, the perfect choice for our Gatsby inspired shoot.
Coffee and chat time, this is where I get to look at the overall look from every angle.
