Summer photoshoot fun!
Darling readers, please forgive me!
I have been terrible with posting recently as things have been so hectic since arriving in London. Living out of a suitcase, moving around the city while I try to find an apartment, and dashing off to interviews – I’ve hardly had anytime to take photos, let alone blog or even read my favourite blogs! Being in London is amazing though – this city has a real buzz about it, and I love how cosmopolitan it is! You can meet people from all over the world here, and there is always so much going on. Oh, and did I mention I ran into one of my favourite bloggers in Mango on Tuesday?! When I’m a bit more settled I promise to start sharing more of it all with you!
In the meantime, I wanted to show you the results of a ‘summer’ themed photoshoot we did during my last week in Beijing. It was another fun collaboration with Adriana Lica, and one of my lovely friends and a super talented makeup artist, Grace Ma. Grace is part of the MeiLi Style team (check out my post on MeiLi here, if you haven’t already!) and is such a sweetheart! Which shot do you like best?
Introducing: MeiLi STYLE, and our photoshoot with WillowWillow!
Gorgeous, talented, and down-to-earth, makeup artist and stylist MeiLi Autumn is one of the best in the industry – and her successful business MEILI STYLE has a reputation for professional, quality talent that keeps her team in high demand.
I met MeiLi almost 4 years ago and have had the pleasure of collaborating with her on a number of projects since. Watching MeiLi at work – transforming the ordinary to the extraordinary – is truly mesmerizing!
I’m very excited to finally be able to tell you about our most recent collaboration – a project to create three distinct makeup looks based around stunning designs by WillowWillow‘s Alicia Lee, and shot by talented Italian photographer, Mirko Iannace from Sharpen Studio. Maria Vittoria, the newest member to MeiLi Style, also played a big part in the make up and styling of the shoot – her skills and creativity produced stunning results! She is definitely an added star to the MeiLi Style crew
Read on to learn more about MeiLi’s story, her makeup tips and advice, and a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot filmed by Ollie Accompanying MeiLi’s interview are photos of the first look we shot – ‘The Faded Mermaid’. I hope you like it!
