I had the pleasure of working on an online campaign shoot with Shangri-La Sydney and immensely talented pastry chef Anna Polyviou, on an ad campaign showcasing her magnificent gingerbread train over the Christmas period. If there is one way to hop into Christmas spirit in Sydney being part of a magical shoot like this one is a sure way to do it.
The over all styling we created was an elegant, high-tea look. I chose a makeup look that reflected a ‘Red Carpet’ feel and teamed that with a soft up-do to keep the over-all look high-end and relaxed. A smoky eye gave the look a little more of a modern edge whilst still maintaining a sophisticated impression.
I kept Anna’s makeup very natural and focused on enhancing her brilliant mohawk. I straightened the hair into the direction I wanted it to go and then used a mixture of texturing powder, hair wax and hair spray to shape, give texture and hold it in place.
Thank you so much to an amazing crew for such a wonderful shoot!
