The latest campaign for Maurie & Eve titled ‘Paradis Noir’, featuring one of Australia’s hottest new faces Gabby  WestBrook-Patrick.

Shot by Jordan Graham and styled by Marina Afonina.

There’s definitely a Kristen Stewart thing going on here don’t you think? Those beautiful piercing blue eyes, ivory skin and perfect pout, in a rich old mansion draped in velvet and tapestries. What I love about these shots is the bold confidence in a subtle manner. There’s an emotion and is thought-provoking.

The Maurie & Eve girls and I wanted to create something that was strong and powerful, that also had a soft  vulnerability.

I lightly tonged Gabby’s hair with a medium sized tong, spraying each section with GHD Curl Hold spray. With my fingers I pulled through L’Oreal Gelee Cashmere styling gel from roots to tips. What I love about this product is it smoothes and shines the hair but doesn’t pull out the curl. I wanted the hair to look nearly wet so I really coated each of the curls from roots to ends. *Tip; Gradually build this product starting from the ends and working your way up to the root. You want to try and do it to each curl at a time, to get this great definition between each section.

On Gabby’s eyes I blended together MAC Rose Loose Eye Pigment over her lids up into the contour of her eye lid and ever so lightly under the eye into the lash line. I then took By Terry Golden Honey Eyeshadow and highlighted her eyes in the centre of her lid, her brow-bone and the inner corners of the eyes. When doing such a vivid colour around the eye like red, you want to defind the lash line a little. I blended in Lord & Berry’s Flat Black Eye Pencil both top and bottom and topped the lashes with Chanel Inimtable Mascara. The lip of the the season has definitely been the Dark Plum. I wanted to take that a step further, so before adding Tom Ford Black Orchid Lip Colour, I lined her lips with Dior Holiday Red Lip Liner. *Tip; Hold the pencil on its side like your shading and follow the lip line. This will round the edges off giving the appearance for larger more-round lips. Fill the lip entirely in. It will give your lip colour a better holding power and stop it from bleeding. Enjoy x MM

Thank you to the M&E girls and Frankie for another great shoot!
