Baccini & Hill Photo Shoot

This collaboration was sensational and one of the best I have worked on!

Creative director and in-house designer Angelina Baccini from the well known and insanely beautiful bridal boutique Baccini & Hill directed this photo shoot to show case some of her new collections and some of her classic pieces. Behind the scenes footage of this photo shoot was featured on 'Meet the Frockers' - a 10-part series on Foxtel, Lifestyle/YOU channel, that follows the world of three bridal boutiques in Melbourne as they help brides from every walk of life find and create their dream wedding dress.

We had 3 beautiful models showcasing looks that were inspired by Art Deco, Gatsby and 1950s glamour. The location for the shoot was inner Melbourne's popular wedding destination 'The Willows', an elegant Victorian mansion with beautiful gardens. Our talented Photographer was Taylor-Ferne Morris and Hair by Caitlin Harris.

Bryony wears a 'Gatsby' inspired gown, to match the sparkle and glamour I used the following:

On the eyes, Stila magnificent metal foil eye shadow in 'Vintage black gold' on the lid and Nars 'cordura' eye shadow blended in the crease. Lined with Bobbi Brown black gel eyeliner and full strip false eyelashes to create a dramatic effect.

Nars 'Gilda' blush on the cheeks and Nars 'Chelsea girls' gloss on lips with Smashbox waterproof lip liner in 'fair'.

Temptu airbrush foundation and highlighter.

Sarah suited an elegant classic look so I went with a 1950s inspired makeup using the following:

On the eyes, an iridescent light base with a taupe contoured socket. I then used Bobbi Brown black gel liner to create a classic 1950s winged eyeliner. False eyelashes were applied to the outer corners of the eyes to also enhance a winged effect.

Nars Amour blush on the cheeks.

For look one I used had a pale pink lipstick and look two had a classic red lip using Nars Red Lizard.

Temptu airbrush foundation and highlighter.

Rebecca wore an elegant Art Deco inspired gown, part of Baccini & Hill's classic collection.

On the Eyes is my signature Copper bronze smokey eye created by using Nars eye shadow duo 'Isolde' to create the copper hues and Nars eye shadow duo 'Cordura' to add depth and dimension to the eyes. With individual false eyelashes applied (always use false lashes with photo shoots!) for an enhanced natural effect. My trusty Bobbi Brown black gel liner used to accentuate the eye shape and the smokey technique.

Also Nars blush in 'Gilda' and on the lips Nars lipstick 'Afghan Red'. Temptu Airbushed foundation and highlighter on the cheek bones.
