Editorial Makeup with Frances Moore MUA

I love doing editorial makeup for blogs and magazines.  It’s a total buzz on the day of shooting.  Often starting in the very early hours of the morning (it’s not uncommon to have a 4am start!)  I get such a high knowing I am working with the very best in the industry.  And I have had the most amazing opportunities to work on some gorgeous high profile ad campaigns, TV productions and Films.  And of course, getting to create some utterly stunning makeup designs for some of the most beautiful women around the world.  One of which is Sophie Waldron – one of the most soughtafter model’s in the industry at the moment.  Below is an image by photographer Matt Lee, with myself on wardrobe/lighting assistance and makeup!  Sophie is such a professional and has such an inner strength she’s just incredible.

I often get asked what is the difference between bridal & editorial makeup?  The difference really stems from what sort of conditions we will be shooting in, what look the photographer/ director/producer would like and what elements the model will be going through.  So for example, on our ‘beach babe’ shoot I knew Sophie would be in full sun, possibly in the water and with a good deal of sand!  So I knew she would physically need something with a high coverage and plenty of touch ups.  Bridal makeup is completely different in this aspect – yes I know some clients need a little more coverage due to potential breakouts/excess oil etc but generally speaking bridal makeup is a lot softer and lighter.

What do I like to do most – bridal or editorial makeup?  Bridal has, and will always be, my most favourite thing to do.  There is nothing quite like the morning of a wedding to make you feel good about the human race!  But I like to mix things up occasionally if nothing else but to strengthen my skills as a makeup artist.

Beach makeup & shoot – something a little different!

Last month photographer Matt Lee, model Sophie Waldron and myself decided to make full use of the wonderful heat wave we were experiencing in the South of England and produce a beach styled shoot… hey, why not?!  Sophie is an avid surfer and swimmer so beach shoots are always her favourites to do, and Matt just loves to travel and explore hidden beaches so this was definitely a shoot were no one needed convincing to spend a day at the beach!

I never thought ‘commercial’ makeup was my thang, but to be honest I rather enjoyed myself on this one!  It was so interesting trying to design something that was a bit beachy, a bit surfy and yet something that was user friendly on the beach and in the intense heat.  I loved it! x

Working with Hannah Elizabeth Bridal Boutique

Working with Hannah is always a privilege.  Hannah and I met early last year on a shoot for the front cover of Wedding Ideas magazine, and ever since then we’ve kept in contact.  She’s quite simply the most kindest, elegant and cheery person I know!  Hannah always receives compliments on how beautifully girly and lady like her appearance is – even on a day off!!  So she’s the perfect person to run a successful bridal boutique.

Here she is hard at work again on our ‘Botanical’ styled shoot, shot at Highcliffe Castle in early January.  Helping model Sophie Waldron into one of her stunning Watters Wtoo gowns in Arabella – possibly one of my most favourite gowns I have worked with on a shoot.

If you’re just setting out on your wedding journey, then I encourage you to pop into Hannah’s bridal boutique in Botley.  There is no one more qualified than Hannah to help you from the gown of your dreams x
