Shooting the El Wood 2013 Calendar

Last year I had the pleasure of working with stunning model El Wood for her 2013 calendar. She wanted modern glam make up and hair to compliment the fresh styling by talented stylist Natasha Lyons and with the great photographer Chris Harris on board, we got some fantastic shots on the day.

For the first few looks I kept the skin looking dewy with barely-there foundation and did the signature ‘El’ look of a kitten flick eyeliner and coral lipstick. I finished the look with a small drawn on beauty spot to give the make up a vintage glam feel.


I took the beauty spot away for the next looks and changed the lipstick to a pretty magenta colour. For one look I even added a little cat nose and whiskers!


The last looks were darker and bolder so I gave El a ‘lived in’ smoky eye to keep the look modern and rock ‘n’ roll. I also changed her lipstick to dark pink/red colour to make the overall look quite vampish.
