Photoshoot with Jess Abidde and Ched53 Photography

Last year I was asked by talented photographer Aaron from Ched53 Photography to do make up on the beautiful model Jessica Abidde, and I was more than happy to do so! We were also joined by lovely hairstylist Kirby Blythe, who did an excellent job on Jess’s hair.

For the first look I created a slightly golden brown smokey eye and I kept the skin quite fresh and dewy. The lips were left natural so the emphasis was all on Jess’s eyes.

The make up for the second look was kept the same and all I did was tidy it up a little to keep it fresh. Kirby changed the hair and a new outfit was selected.

The third look was a lot stronger and I felt that I needed to add something to the make up to make it bolder. I added a bold metallic red lipstick that looked amazing on Jess’s full lips.


For the last two looks we decided to go very feminine and pretty – for this I did very natural and soft make up on Jess, and Kirby put her hair up in an elegant up-do.

For these pictures Aaron made a ‘bed’ covered in chocolate coloured satin for Jess to lie on, giving these photos a glamorous feel.
