Designing a evening look for Anna Sui

This evening look is inspired by the new Lipstick G lipstick collection by Anna Sui. Within the new Lipstick G collection there is a black lipstick, this will be the main focus of the makeup design. As the lipstick range was inspired by rock stars so is my look, however my look will have a more glamorized and modern feel to it. 

Dark eye makeup will be used with a touch of silver to the inner corners of the eyes to add depth to the design. There will be definition to the brows and cheekbones however the makeup design will be bold and have a simple finish.  The hair for this design would have a straight block fringe, a high pony tail with lots of volume. 

As this look is inspired by the Lipstick G lipstick range the main colour within the makeup design are a black and grey smokey eye with a touch of silver with black lips. The rest of the makeup design will be natural, I don't want the face to seem to sculpted with highlighting and contouring so these techniques are going to be kept minimal.

Within the Lipstick G lipstick range there are seven shades that can be brought on Beauty Bay online by pressing here (link to beauty bay) pricing from £16.10 - £23. These shades are Glitter Silver, Glitter Gold, Glitter Black, Powder Pink, Paris Pink, Rose Pink & Valencia.

Product description

'Perfect worn alone for a subtle wash of colour with a shot of sparkle or layering over other lip colours to add a touch of glitz to bolder colour, Lipstick G is enriched with natural Botanical Oils and Pearlescent Particles which keep the lips beautifully hydrated with an iridescent finish whilst Vitamin C and Antioxidants such as Grape Seed Oil shield the lips from free radical damage.'

Hair chart

Step by step of how to create this hair style:
  1. Section the fringe and hold in place with a sectioning clip.
  2. Create two pony tails in the back centre of the head, the first pony quite high on the head and the other just below.
  3. Spray heat protection spray into the hair.
  4. Spray gel spray into the hair and barrel curl all the hair in the pony tails and use long silver sectioning clips to hold the curls into place.
  5. Allow the hair to cool and then brush the hair out, backcomb some sections as desired and apply Vitapointe into the hair to control the hair. the ends should be slightly curled.
  6. Straighten the fringe to frame the face.
  7. Finish with hair spray.

I practiced this hair style on my dolls head and I found that the hair was too short, therefore the pony tail was not long enough. For the shoot I shouldn't have this problem because my models hair is a lot longer than the dolls head.
