Y’all know I’m a big fan of Irish talent, so when I spied this shoot by Lee Malone, styled by Lisa Marie Carroll with make-up by Sarah Lanagan and hair by Pawell Solis, I knew I wanted to feature it. Young Thalia, one of Ireland’s hottest models, looks amazing in the 1960s-inspired get-ups the team concocted for her! Just stunning. As a special bonus, Sarah Lanagan, make-up artist extraordinaire, has done up a summary about how the shoot came to be. So without further ado . . .
A few weeks ago, photographer Lee Malone asked me to do make-up for a shoot to celebrate the work of one the world’s best-known photographers; David Bailey and his muse Jean Shrimpton. Between the 1960s & early 1970s Bailey did numerous shoots with the actress who soon became a rising star thanks to his influence and attention. With our shoot simply entitled “The Shrimp by Thalia”, we aimed to recreate a series that combined some of the most memorable and beautiful images that Bailey had taken over the years. The pictures have been published in the June/July issue of Cliché Magazine, an American publication based in Los Angeles.
The make-up design had to be identical to that of the era so I started with the lightweight Teint Innocence Chanel foundation and MAC Select Cover Up concealer applied with a synthetic hair foundation brush to create a flawless, yet fresh base. To give a true 1960s feel, Thalia’s eyes were defined using a thick line of Lancome Art gel liner, matte grey shadow in the sockets and individual lashes on both the top and bottom. Contouring was added for defined cheek bones using a matte bronzer before lips were given a soft, natural effect with a little Bobbi Brown lipstick in the shade “Beige” – one of my favourite neutral lip colours of all time!
