I-D Magazine, Val Garland & Mastered HQ...

Every now and again something pops up that I absolutely can't say no to...this shoot was one of those things!

One of my favourite makeup artists Samantha Lyann got in touch about a brief she was set as part of the Val Garland Mastered HQ course. The brief was set by I-D Magazine...a beauty shoot that should mix high fashion with street style and youth culture. Our model was going to be Lara McGrath. Sold!

We managed to squeeze an evening in at my house, set up the lights and have a lot of fun while shooting! The shoot was fully styled from pieces from Lara's own collection of vintage, sports and street wear and her poses personality were absolutely perfect for what we had in mind! We wanted the look to be raw, slightly unpolished, but still fashion worthy. The hair and makeup was kept slick and edgy while the details, such as the chipped nail polish and self styling, were reminiscent of the youth culture element of the brief.

All in all we had a great shoot! I love working with these talented ladies and I wish Samantha all the best luck with the rest of her course! Check out some of the final images below...and to see some of the behind the scenes videos head over to my Instagram @enbphoto...
