“As with all my work, I take the client’s brief and develop a way of shooting it to deliver beautiful, timeless images. With the brand’s emphasis on products containing no damaging ingredients and the salon design being clean and modern, I decided to shoot Talia simply and to emphasise her incredible eyes and skin. “The resulting images are softly lit with a warm backdrop and colour palette, reminiscent of a warm Grecian evening to celebrate Aenea’s Greek origins.”
“The styling of this modern-day Greek goddess look was all about gold jewellery, so I wanted to echo that in the make-up.
“The model, Talia, had such amazing skin that I didn’t need to apply a heavy base. I wanted to create a glowing, golden look and to do that I used Light Wonder foundation from Charlotte Tilbury, simply buffing it into moisturised skin.
“I then concealed under the eyes before applying shadow from Charlotte Tilbury’s Dolce Vita pallete. I didn’t add any mascara because I wanted to keep the look fresh and clean and give that ethereal Grecian effect.
“I applied Mac cream blush in shade Ladyblush to the apples of the cheeks then created a light contour using the brand’s Taupe shade. To finish and add dimension to the face, I used a highlight stick from Madina Milano on the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow.
“For the lips, just a scrub and loads of lip balm were all that was needed. A quick brush of the brows with Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brow in Clear to set the hairs in place, and the Grecian goddess look was complete.”
