Blush seems to be returning to be a statement feature rather than a delicate little touch of colour. Kenzo’s make-up arist, Lynsey Alexander, created a standout look for S/S 2017 using Mac’s lip pencil in the classic shade of ‘Ruby Woo’ and Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. The overall look was a slick collection which made the models beautiful flowers, and I loved this look with the massive clusters of peach crystals as earrings.
Here’s my original sketch scan before being cleaned and painted.
Then I added the watercolours, being conscious of wanting it to keep a good texture on the paper. After being scanned again, cleaned and the brightness adjusted, I added some digital touches like the eyes, collar, hair and where the light catches.
