GCSEs are finally done, and my blog finally starts to exist again!
If you follow me on literally ANY of my social media, youve probably noticed I haven't been able to shut up about my make-up and magazine features I've worked on with my kindered creative spirit Erfan (@erfans.photography).
Doing editorial style makeup has always been a passion of mine: the idea of completely changing and enhancing your features on its own is fascinating, but then being able to WEAR the artwork afterwards brings a whole new level of courage and pride into your work - even if it means you're strutting through Dubai mall with blue eyebrows and red glitter freckles (quite an experience to say the least).
It's been so interesting working in a modelling agency studio with erfan and our amazing models, who are mostly our own friends, which makes the whole creative process so much more fun. Friends also seem to have a lot less attitude and yell at you a lot less... (we've had our fair share of fashion industry divas to say the least...)
The first editorial Erfan and I did got published in Volant Magazine Issue 60 - Elegance. I cannot put into words just how exciting this was for both of us, hence my endless rambling about my utter disbelief for getting featured among such talented upcoming artists.
I'll link the E-book magazine below, but will also pictures from the shoot. A hardcopy of the magazine is still available to purchase I believe; of course, at a fee, but everything looks better on glossy paper so its definitely worth the small premium! (Not that I'm at all biased...)
the editorial itself is shot by Erfan Shekarriz, makeup done by Emma Robertson (myself) and modeled by the gorgeous Sara and Kaya Geha.
The pictures included aren't full res because I'm travelling at the moment, but they're decent quality. However, the pictures included in the magazine are maximum resolution so go there for more detail!
the following three aren't included in the final Volant editorial, but I'm so proud of them so I thought I'd post them here as well.
