So, here goes......... this is my first blog so please be gentle as I am a little nervous!

I'm spending today, my day off , getting over a very long Sunday! Having spent 10 hours at the Albert and Arthur Studios in Shoreditch beautifying 3 professional models and 2 (equally as gorgeous) non-models, and having drank copious amounts of Redbull,  I find myself needing some much needed fresh air!

What a great day, the three models we used had very different looks and we wanted a very rock chick, edgy finish! (Please find a list of products used below) We achieved this by keeping the skin really clean, with minimal contouring and concentrating on a strong, dark and slightly smudged eye.

First, the charming and very down to earth, glasgow girl, Abigail Rose who, with short platinum hair and a tiny face resembles the early Twiggy. Then fabulous long locked, Danielle who just could never look bad, no matter what you do! Finally, the young and quiet Emily who, when the camera starts clicking turns into a full on goddess (who'd have thought).

After this, we turned to the very nervous girls that we were using as hair models! As they had been getting more and more intimated by the watching the models work the camera, I was convinced the photographer was going have to work really hard to get the girls to open up and "strike a pose"! Wow, was I wrong, Charlotte, an A level student had clearly been practising in her bedroom, and I thank god for "Britains Next Top model " and what she had clearly learnt from it! Go girl!

And as for, Sophie, who with her pale skin, bright dyed red hair and strong bone structure, photographed like a punky Nicola from Girls Aloud!  I loved the end result! I can't wait to share the photos with you, which I'll do as soon as I have them from the photographer!

All in all, a great shoot with some really fun people! The hair stylist, Vicky Turner from Goldworthys, Cirencester was amazing and is hugely talened, and already booked for my wedding! Hahaha!
