Earlier this year we met the wonderful and talented vision makers George & Smee. The girls invited us to be a part of their creative shoot She Is Light, which was recently featured on Together Journal. We had such a great day with the team and loved the photos by Jason Corroto we just had to share some of the shoot and select beauty images with you here. Enjoy.
Art Direction and Venue styling by George & Smee drew inspiration from art and natural surroundings. They incorporated natural colours and textures of different grasses, leaves and dried flowers to create sculptural botanic installations for the tables and venue. The shoot took place at Porteno Events Space in Surry Hills, which is gorgeously light filled. The perfect backdrop to George & Smee’s overgrown wild setting which was kept fresh and crisp by incorporating the floor tones within the floral installation.
Namibian born model Vakoo Kauapirura, who will star in the new season of The Bachelor, looked effortless in a dress by Sant Elia. The Future Mrs stylist, Lydia Jane-Saunders chose the dress for its simplicity and textured bodice which echoed the florals featured in the main story.
The Future Mrs hair and makeup artist Vic Anderson enhanced Vakoo’s naturally radiant skin by using L’Oreal True Match foundation as a base with Charlotte tilbury Magic Away concealer. To pop Valook’s cheeks she smudged Stila convertible colour “Magnolia” with Luma Beauty Illuminating Highlighter in Golden Glow and eyes were enhanced with MAC Pro long wear paint pot “Constructivist”, Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon, Maybelline Volume Express Colossal Big Shot Mascara and Modelrock lashes. The look which was glowing and natural was finished with a swipe of Revolution Beauty Soph lipstick in “Fudge” across the lips.
