Making Up Gracie


Here's a sneaky peek at a shoot I did yesterday (snapped with my phone - the real pics will be much better!) The model is the sweet Gracie from 1st Option...isn't she beautiful.


She has only been modelling for two months but the girl has got it. Such beautiful, subtle expressions cross her face...


I posted this picture on Twitter yesterday and lots of people wanted to know what I used so here goes...

Chanel Pro Lumiere foundation in 02
Becca Illuminator in Pearl
Smashbox Eyeshadow in Fizz
Smashbox Cream Eyeliner in Blacklight
MAC False Lash Mascara
Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Chestnut
Smashbox Blush Rush in Pose
Revlon matte lipstick in Pink About It


And here I am touching up Gracie's eyeshadow!
I can't wait to see the real shots, I will share them as soon as I can.

Wow Ellie - I love everything about this look. So soft and fresh and striking at the same time.

I love that lipstick but it's discontinued! Could you suggest anything similar?

Ellie Balfe said...

Oh no Aoife, really?
Impassioned by MAC is similar and it's actually more creamy so therefore easier to wear. The Revlon one is fab but very matte so over a few hours it can feel dry on the lips...it's the one drawback to it's great colour.

Hi Fifibelle,

It's my new iPhone 4...I'm pretty impressed myself I must admit!

Love it Ellie. The cheeks and lips are so bright and pretty!

Aoife said...

Hi Ellie - thanks a million for that - super helpful as I actually have dry lips so the MAC sounds like it would be far better!

I was thinking the same about the photos - they don't look like they were taken with a phone at all!
