This editorial makeup look combines dark colours with sharp lines. The vampy, deep red lip contrasts against the model’s pale skin. The sharp lines of the winged eyeliner compliments the sharp angled brows. The eyeshadow has been built up to further emphasize the wing and carried underneath the eye to the lash line. We think this editorial makeup look is out of this world! It’s bold and shows off your more dramatic side.

2. Ice Queen

This editorial makeup look plays on the juxtaposition between light and dark. The pale skin tone of the model is heightened with white loose powder. A sharp contour line highlights the model’s cheekbones and draws the eye toward the almost black lip colour. Whilst this editorial makeup look might be too much for some – sharp contrasts look great on camera and your photoshoot is the time to experiment and try creative looks. Creative makeup looks are so much fun to shoot!

3. Winter Wonder

We love editorial makeup looks that push the envelope – and this Winter Wonder makeup look does just that! The model wears white face paint not just on his face – but also on his upper body. A photoshoot look like this will not only add diversity to your portfolio, it will also capture your energy and creativity. Your makeup artist is there to make your vision into a reality – so if you would love to attempt an editorial makeup look like this, chat with your makeup artist about making it work for you.

4. Urban Sparkle

This editorial makeup look is all about the eyes! Teal eyeshadow in the inner corner of the model’s eyes is blended out with black into the outer corners. This creates a smokey eyeshadow effect. Black eyeliner is smudged on the lower lash line to increase the drama of this look. We love how the natural lip colour allows the eyeshadow to be the hero of this look.

5. Lash Goddess

There is something so glamorous about voluminous eyelashes! Fake eyelashes create drama in your photos, draw attention to your eyes and elevate your photoshoot to next level glam. You can choose to wear more natural fake eyelashes if that is more your scene – but dramatic, ultra-glam fake eyelashes will make you feel like a million dollars during your photoshoot.

6. Sleek & Sexy

The models here are rocking the slicked back, wet hair look which is very on trend right now. Spice up your portfolio with a bold look like this to show agencies you have range.

This editorial makeup look combines beautiful gold eyeshadow with golden lips. We love how this look is simple yet incredibly effective on camera. If you are not a fan of gold – why not try matching your eyeshadow and lipstick in different colours? Pink, blue, orange, silver, there are endless options. Pro-Tip: if you really want to embrace this editorial makeup look, we suggest choosing clothing pieces for your photoshoot that also match your eyeshadow and lip colour. You will love how your styling and makeup compliment each other!

8. Colour Outside The Lines

An editorial makeup look does not have to include any makeup at all! In this Colour Outside The Lines editorial makeup look, the model wears yellow face paint along his cheek bones and jaw line. These lines accentuate his sharp facial features and the colour of the face paint compliments his outfits. Experimenting with face paint during your shoot can create photos which are unique to you, showcasing your individuality.

9. Barely There

Editorial makeup looks don’t always have to be over the top – this makeup look is minimal: nothing but lip balm on the lips, a hint of blush, mascara and a softly blended bronze eyeshadow. When you wear a small amount of makeup it allows your natural features to shine on camera. Pro-Tip: Wear vibrant, outstanding clothing pieces with this editorial makeup and they will become the hero of this look!

10. Sweet Peach

Luminous skin and peach tones form the basis of this editorial makeup look. The model wears peach coloured blush, peach and bronze eyeshadow and a nude lip colour. Pro Tip: to make the peach tones of this makeup look really pop, style your photoshoot looks with peach coloured clothes or accessories.

11. Romantic and Red
