SHEVOKE X HUXLEY SCHOOL OF MAKEUP
What was the theme for the shoot?
After reflecting on the Shevoke collection we were totally inspired by the vintage festival vibes championed by major fashion labels this year! Brands like Gucci, Jason Wu, Calvin Klien, Alexander McQueen and more all brought back iconic 70's boho designs and prints.
We wanted the focus to be on the sunglasses. For this reason we kept the composition of the images tight and simple. The lighting was fresh and sharp to capture the coloured lenses and showcase the designs.
How long did each look take?
The students first got a glimpse of the collection a few weeks before. They then had a chance to select their favourite pieces and map out their makeup concepts. To create the looks on the night didn't take long because the students had a good idea of what they were creating.
Tell us about the models, did they have fun shooting with Shevoke and Huxley?
Absolutely! The girls couldn't get enough of them! They almost broke the internet with the amount of selfies and snap chat stories they were taking on on the night. We always promote a fun environment at our shoots and this definitely helps us to get the most out of our models when they are in front of the camera.
It is awesome that Huxley create opportunities like this for the students. Is it a difficult to coordinate so many shoots throughout the teaching term with different brands?
We spend quite a bit of time developing our concepts behind the scenes to make sure our shoots are at the highest standards. At the Huxley School of Makeup, we create real world opportunities for our students to give them a competitive advantage when they graduate. It is a big part of what we do at the school so it is just another day in the office for us!
If you could choose, what are you fav pair of sunnies?
It is difficult to narrow down just one pair! But probably the clear blue lens glasses with the oversize frames. You don't see many people wearing these sunglasses around and I like wearing things that not everyone has. Also when you wear them it is like you're living inside the perfect snapchat filter! Everything looks cool and fresh when you're waring them!
Have a good night babes,
