A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing Pixie Lott for the cover of Fault magazine in London. Pixie has just released her new single, Baby, which is her first new single for three years.
It was a lovely job as Pixie not only has a dream face for makeup but is super nice, and very warm and relaxed.
I used quite a lot of Charlotte Tilbury’s range on Pixie – I really love it for red carpet and celebrity (as well as private clients) as it just works. Quite often time is short with celebrities and you need products that are quick and easy to use and make them look amazing in the shortest time possible.
Pixie has beautiful skin so I just used Chanel Vitalumiere foundation on her with a damp sponge, and a bit of Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick in areas that needed more coverage.
She has amazing brows so I just filled in where needed with MAC Lingering pencil (always a classic!) On her eyes I wanted a rock n’ roll smoky eye with some colour to give it some edge and also to work with the red background that the photographer, Rossella Vanon had chosen. I used MAC Embark eyeshadow in the crease to create some depth and then a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise in Marie Antoinette (a golden oyster champagne colour) with Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise in Veruschka, which is an incredible complex grey-taupe shade with some green to it, which was lovely on her eye colour.
I used MAC Smolder eye pencil all around her eyes, as well as NARS Filibuste black shadow stick on the outer corners, topped with MAC Carbon eyeshadow. Kat Von D black liquid liner and MAC Haute and Naughty mascara finished the look.
On her cheeks I used Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow as well as MAC Fleur Power blush. Lips were lined with Charlotte Tilbury’s Iconic Nude lipliner and finished with Charlotte Tilbury’s Nude Kate lipstick which I have to say was the loveliest, easiest nude lip ever!
