Caitlyn Paterson is one of those cool, calm, and confident personalities that has that magnetic quality – capable of drawing people in to her dreamy-gaze without them even knowing. With a natural, and very-real approach to beauty – Caitlyn shows us that beauty is something that comes from within
“A scent is such a powerful thing – it can really resonate with you – reminding you of an ex-boyfirned or a particular time or moment in in your life. So you can imagine when Caitlyn sat down in my makeup chair on meeting her, smelling deliciously of coconut oil. The memories of past tropical holidays, Summer romances, and moments that have been marked with one of the signature smells of Summer. That a side, Caitlyn is one of those cool, calm, and confident personalities that has this magnetic quality capable of drawing people in without them even knowing it – could you think of a better scent than coconut nut oil for her to smell like?
When I first came across Caitlyn my mind immediately started racing through scenes of the iconic movie Virgin Suicides, where Kirsten Dunst plays the character Lux. Like the character, Caitlyn shares that somewhat familiar dreamy, innocent gaze that catches on lookers. Yet more intriguingly, she has that constant smirk – which for some reason says something naughty is on her mind.
Now if that wasn’t a beautiful piece of inspiration to reach out and collaborate, I don’t know what is.
Famous for her style and ability to relate to us with the story she tells through her images from moments in her life, the model and aspiring actress has a gift that many only dream of. Here Caitlyn shares with us her beauty must-haves and gives us a little insight into her world.

Rough dry Kevin Murphy Resort.Spray through damp hair using your fingers to build a beach-like texture and subtle volume. Split hair in to piggy-tales and start plaiting from right behind the ears. Use a clear elastic to secure the ends of the plait before breaking apart them apart a little to get that cool worn-in-texture. Cross pin each plait on the opposite sit of the head to hold your braid halo in place. To finish… Pull some pieces out around the hair line of your face for a more romantic touch.
