So today I though I'd do a little "behind the scenes" piece on our recent photoshoot here in our hometown of Carlow. On board were photographer Shaun Barry, stylist Elaine Scully (my blogging buddy!) model Suzanne Moran, hair stylist Clare Hannaford, and makeup by me. Not forgetting of course AWear clothing, where Elaine took inspiration from the Chanel catwalks and added her own creative twist.

Fast forward to the day before the shoot, and here I am sticking rhinestones to muslin cloth with superglue and a tweezers, praying that they will fit Suzanne properly. I made a backup set just in case, but thankfully they fit perfectly!
Makeup-wise I chose a deep burgundy colour for the lips, and minimal eyemakeup - just mascara. I made Suzanne's pale skin even paler for an almost theatrical effect.I painted Suzanne's nails with Gosh metallic silver nail polish.

I also changed the lip colour to a bright poppy red, which works well against the black and gold outfit.
For more images from this shoot, see my website or Facebook page.
For details on the clothes and accessories used, Elaine will be blogging about that shortly.
Thanks to AWear, Shaun Barry, Elaine Scully, Suzanne Moran and Clare Hannaford for making this a really fun shoot!
