Model: Jess Mm
Make-up/hairstyling: Molotov Pigtails Hairstyling and Make-up.

This was a really fun shoot to undertake. I initially drew inspiration from Andy Warhol’s iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, though what resulted was a little more special.

Jess is an absolutely gorgeous model and very fun and easygoing- in short, amazing to work with. Mark likes to think outside the box. Together, we deviated from the original plans and decided to make this more bubblegum editorial. Something surreal, yet still tangible and identifiable.

The make-up took a ridiculously long time as I had to colour match the contours, highlights and foundation in an airbrush to a bizarre shade of bubblegum. Jess looked sunburnt until the eyeliner was applied near the end of the application. Glamorous. However, she was an extremely good sport as I styled a waist-length wig into a pseudo bob and fiddled with the base colour until it looked right.

Thanks so much to both of you for your extreme patience and creativity that you added to a half-baked concept I brought in to you both.

What do you think of the shots? let me know below.
