How to: smokey olive-green beauty look

While the green eyed monster is something that everyone hates, this smokey green eyed beauty look from a photoshoot we featured by Ed Purnomo is one that we can’t help but love. Created by makeup artist Nicola Johnson, this look was meant to balance the whites and pastels of the clothes made by Mok Theorem. Stylist Giarne Wedes also added ornate accessories to the outfits…

When forces collide and boundaries break

Tough and bold, untamed and powerful, naughty and nice, these would be the words fit to describe Amani Fazi’s story of collapsing duality that sets the mood for his brilliant photoshoot suggestively entitled Forces Collide. Leather accents meet over-the-knee boots, high-heels join forces with full-length gloves, while a police man hat figuratively worn under an exquisite kerchief hints towards the stronger and deeper meaning of…

How to: future meets vintage hair and makeup

If you cast your mind back to last week you may remember we featured a shoot by Amani Faiz titled 2050. It was a tale of collisions: glamour in a rustic setting, the past intersecting with the future. “The shoot 2050 is a futuristic take on the vintage glamour from the 1950’s,” explains Nicola Johnson (nicolajohnson.com), hair and makeup artist on the shoot. “We were…

2050: styles colliding

Amani Faiz’s latest shoot is titled 2050, but it’s not making projections of the date the world will end or anything similarly dramatic. No, rather it’s cleverly titled to imply a mix of the past and future; a merging of the fashions of the 1950s with what’s happening now and what’s to come. To that end stylist Manuel Spiropoulos along with hair and makeup artist…

How to: a classically elegant makeup look

Sydney-based make-up artist Nicola Johnson created this 1950s-inspired beauty look for Toby Marosszeky’s camera to capture in his shoot The Elegance of Red and White. Featuring a bold lip and classically elegant eye, it's one you can recreate at home. Find out how after the break.

The elegance of years gone by

There’s a school of thought put about in some circles that we see too much vintage fashion – that too many fashion trends rework what has gone before as opposed to pushing fashion forwards in new directions. It’s a school of thought that I can’t help disagree with. If a design from the past was executed so successfully that it still appeals, why should we…
