The beauty look for the Jasper Conran SS15 show was to enhance the natural beauty of the girls so it was kept natural and laid back.

Nails for the show were kept natural and backstage we gave models full manicures. Nails were cleaned and shaped individual to the models natural nail shape. We buffed the nails to give them a natural looking healthy shine and glow using the OPI professional shine buffer.

1205 LFW SS2015 Show – Make-up by Maria Comparetto

The inspiration for the makeup for the 1205 show styled by Jane Howard sponsored by Balance Me was ‘Purity & Nature’ inspired by the designers clean simple and androgynous designs. I set out to create something that was truly beautiful and not just skin deep.

I started by spraying the Skin with Balance Me Bright Hydrating Face Mist, Then I massaged the face using Balance Me Radiance Face Oil then I re-spritzed the face using the face mist. A light layer of Balancing Face Moisturiser was then applied and the exces was then blotted off with a tissue. Any Uneven skin tone was then addressed using a cream concealer & brightening pens.

Brows were defined and brushed upwards with a setting gel. Clear mascara gave the lashes definition and opened up the eyes. A light dab of Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve was used to highlight the cupids bow. Using a taupe cream colour I contoured the cheeks & to complete the look, the Radiance Face Oil was mixed with MAC Strobe Cream and applied to the cheekbones and temples.Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 13.30.05

Shoulders, arms, legs & collar bones were all highlighted in the same way but by mixing the strobe with the Super Moisturising Body instead.

The essential oils in the products created an amazing skin which was gleaming, translucent and thanks to the scents, the backstage vibe was relaxed.
