Australian brand Nude by Nature’s answer to natural mineral make-up.

nude by natureThe name NudebyNature conjures up thoughts of  the outdoors and reflects the concept of this beauty brand.  I understand from my newly discovered extended family ( who happen to be make-up artists) and live close to Melbourne Australia, say the brand widely advertised on infomercials. That’s an advertizing term i hadn’t ever heard before.  However i had the chance to try these products for myself at the event with journos Rebecca Barnes and Karen Heath at the London Launch in the Charlotte Street Hotel.  I have to say i  liked the consistency of the liquid foundation as it smooths over the skin so easily and naturally.

These backstage hair and make-up scenes were taken at the Seoul-based 2015/16 Cruise collection show.  The hair designed and created by hairdresser  Sam McKnight and make-up designed for CHANEL by make-up artist Tom Pecheux.

Session hair stylist Sam McKnight created large plaits made with colour contrasting synthetic hair smoothed over with bees wax with large hair accessories.  The idea was originally sent to him by designer Karl Lagerfeld based around Korean nobility.  The make-up created and designed by Tom Pecheux using false lashes on the top and bottom, pencilled in a stronger brow, added a soft muted blush, and then to finish an added matte lip colour/pencil with a coral/pink finish.

After the skin had been prepared with Hydra Beauty,  these were the make-up items used for the show.
