Vintage Elopement Photoshoot – Vintage Hair and Makeup Yorkshire

Lots of Vintage Hair and Makeup Yorkshire:

I was recently asked to take part in a photoshoot by the very talented Jill and Julia from Todd & Moore photography. The theme was ‘vintage elopement’ which sounded like a great concept especially as we were shooting along the North York Moors Steam Engine Railway on what turned out to be a beautiful sunny day!

The vintage makeup look I went for was the classic 1950’s vintage make-up look – flawless porcelain skin (using Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation and Smashbox Photo Finishing Powder), strong flicked black eyeliner (Illamasqua Gel Liner in Black) and of course a bold red statement lip using ‘MAC Red’ lipstick.

For the models hair I created a couple of victory rolls with some soft waves in the remaining hair left down. I later changed the hairstyle to a more sophisticated french roll style updo before letting it all down to do its own thing for the final ‘Wuthering Heights’ style shots up on the moors!

The outcome of the pictures is amazing and such a great team of local suppliers to work with!
