Tales from the beauty shoot...

09 February 2010

Yesterday we headed up to a north London studio for a shoot with a bit of a difference… Obviously we can’t go into too much detail - we need to keep it hush hush until you can see the full results for yourselves. But basically, on this occasion it was the Grazia beauty girls posing for the camera, rather than directing from behind it. After we’d got over some stage fright, we admit that we quite enjoyed the whole experience (see our lovely Associate Beauty Editor after getting glammed up above).

Always on the look out for hot advice and product tip-offs from the experts, we also took the opportunity to quiz Lacey Hawkins and Zoe Taylor - our wonderful hair and makeup team - very thoroughly.  Here’s what we got:

Zoe told us that she has a grand total of four products in her makeup bag including MyFace Cosmetics Lipliner in Medium Beige, £6.35 and Shu Uemura Black Liquid Eyeliner in Black, £19.50. She can’t live without them. We suspect we can’t either.

The lovely Lacey said that low maintenance girls can achieve high maintenance curls by combing Bumble & Bumble Brilliantine, £16.35 through the tips of damp hair, twisting strands into mini sections and leaving to dry. Brush out later for perfectly glossy and defined curls…Wonderful.

Thanks ladies!
