Every month we like to stretch and flex our creative muscles, it keeps our work fresh and the creative juices constantly flowing. It also gives us a chance to work with new people, explore new ideas and produce new work.
We recently teamed up with makeup artist Lori Bee and photographer Natalie Gordon to work on a concept shoot designed by Lori Bee.
This beauty story is entitled "Interstellar Beauty", inspired by the film Interstellar and make up texture artist Danessa Myricks.
‘Lost in the abyss of the dark night sky, this beauty makes several attempts to find her way home. Forever stumbling in the nebula, comets and various stars... She misses the familiar, but can’t help but be drawn in by the beauty of what the galaxy has to offer! She longs to see her loved ones... but something, someone, is causing her to stop seeking; and stay just that much longer...’
When it comes to creative collaborations, the best work is always done when each member of the team brings its own unique thought process and thinking to the overarching concept. Lori Bee wrote this concept about travel and familiarity in a place that isn't familiar. Speaking with me, and the fact that one of my sources of inspiration is films, wanted to tie it back to a story which has similar themes.
This allows the work to have a richer story and a thread which can be seen throughout the work.

When working with others on a collaboration, it's always important to keep your aesthetic while combining it with your fellow creatives point of view. Lori envisioned a world of glitters, pigments and stardust set against a dark night sky after I had introduced her to nebulas, dust clouds and the beautiful imagery of deep space.
Taking that lead and thinking on the films themes lead Lori to experiment with makeup in order to interpret this into a beauty look. We love the colours, sparkle and allusions to comets and stardust which she was able to create on the model. The result is an outworldly but striking look which we all loved.
