Same model, same beautiful glow. Creating this glow on Amanda's skin was easy with skin care and no highlighters because she has gorgeous skin. a good canvas = good makeup, no filters required! 
Check out @houseofollichon for a unique dress-less bridal brand! Every year I'm wowed by the collection.

This year Amanda was welcomed into the HOH family, it took a while to find a curve model but when we did... Boy she rock it!! - Amanda had gorgeous skin so it wasn't hard to create this glow without the use of highlighters.

  • Last of my collection from my session with @jamesmolloymakeupartist. It took me a long time to embrace my natural makeup style. If their was one thing I’ve learnt from my session with James is that it doesn’t mean you can’t create striking work. A perfectly fair laced neon liner lifts this image.
