Fashion Film

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of working on a short fashion film in Glasgow with fashion stylist Terri Higgins, and also alongside the talented Martins Melecis - the man behind the lens!

Terri had the concept of “A love affair with beauty” and the short film being “a representation of the relationship between the clothes and the wearer”.

The makeup was to be a fresh summer look. I used some beautiful pastel shades to create three different looks on the day. Terri also had some great ideas to add! Again on this shoot, I had to play at being hairdresser – I must add with very few utensils, however it paid off in the end, and Madeleine our beautiful model looked FABALUS!

I was super impressed with Terri’s styling – the outfits she produced were BEAUT! This chick definitely knows how to rock up some amazing looks! Highly recommend her! You can check out her fierce styling here!

Between Martins and Craig Gibson on filming, and Calum Milligan creating still images – this project will be sure to blow you away!

You can also check out some of Martins amazing skills here!! 

Here’s a few sneak personal images from the day… 





Lotsa Love,



Burst my styling bubble!

So Monday was to be one of my first shoots where I basically got to direct the whole thing from styling, to the makeup looks, and how I envisioned the whole finish of the shoot. I was working with Ross Campbell, great photographer! We've colaborated previously and the outcome is always fabtastic!

I was also working along side Julia Graham, owner a Frank Boutique. Using many garments from the boutique and my own other pieces we styled up Danielle Lynch - model at Superior. 

The weather was BEAUT for shooting. We had the pleasure of shooting at a disused farm - all thanks to Julia, which had some really amazing views and hidden little treasure spots! 

Here are some photographs from the day!

Love, SLS x

Frank Yourself Beautiful!

Last night we had had our first round of weekly web shoots in-house at Frank! The shop was turned into a studio in the space of minutes and we got straight down to it! 

I began prepping the face of Frank, lovely Danielle Lynch- model at Superior Model Management, and one of my closest friends. I wanted to create a fresh look so I began with a beautiful creamy skin, subtle burnt metallic eyes and a gorgeous deep lilac lip - summer is slowly creeping upon us!!

Julia, owner at Frank is great to work with, fun and very personable! Frank clearly identifies itself with its bold style. Julia stocks some great brands and has recently launched herself into menswear - Shoot soon to follow!!

Being the makeup artist in residence at Frank is a lot of fun. Julia and I are always bouncing ideas off of each other and thinking of how to take things up a notch! 

Check out her beautiful boutique here and on Facebook here

And here is one of my favorite images from last night shoot!




It's question time!

Today I took some time during my wedding makeup demonstration to ask my model and friend the lovely Sarah G Morris, Financial Director of her family owned Holiday rental company a few questions, here's what she had to tell me...


SLS: What is your “must have” handbag?

Sarah: “ The Mulberry Bayswater is my classic choice and is never out of place. This season I am really liking the lemon sherbet Holiday Bayswater.”


SLS: What are your handbag essentials?

Sarah: “Rimmel eyeliner, my Nars lipstick, Stem organics moisturiser and last but not least Crème de la Mer eye concentrate (nothing beats it).”


SLS: Favourite Wardrobe item?

Sarah: “My Whistles beaded dress from many seasons ago, I LOVE IT! It just works for so many different occasions. It was also an absolute sale bargain, so cost per wear has been fab.”


SLS: Fashion disaster?

Sarah: “Red velvet hot pants, Oh Dear!”


SLS: Favourite holiday destination?

Sarah: “The Intercontinental Aphrodite Hills Resort, Cyprus.”


SLS: Favourite places to eat?

Sarah: “For a special occasion dinner at Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles is my all-time favourite. Lunch and cocktails with the girls has to be Tiger Lily, Edinburgh. Coffee, cake and chat is often at Mimi’s in Leith. I do love food!”


SLS: Most decadent treat?

Sarah: “A hot stone massage, accompanied by a Neals Yard facial from my therapist Janice. Followed by a glass of rose champagne & charbonnel and walker glorious champagne truffles. Mmmmm. Happy days.”


To finish here is an image from today! Quarry is most definitely one of favourite eye-shadows to use on a fair-skinned bride!

House of Black

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with David Black, designer at House of Black on his latest collection. Shooting a fashion film is something I have wanted to be involved in for a while so I was very much excited for the day ahead!!

The brief was to create a Lana Del Ray inspired makeup, subtle but striking. I was thrown in at the deep end, styling the hair which I haven't yet had to do on a shoot. However, the result was great! It helped working with such a good team. Model Mel Hamilton was such a lovely lil lady! Mel, David and I really got on well, shoots are so enjoyable when you have a good group of creatives all bouncing off each other!


This was a BTS shot I took before we set off on location!
