Rebellious, brash and multi-talented, Lucy Bridge is the avant-garde make-up artist and plus-size model who plays muse to Tim Walker and Beth Ditto.
Trained in design media, make-up, photography, wig making and hairdressing, Lucy began interning at Illamasqua and assisting Alex Box. She now works with MAC, contributes to numerous magazines, is the face of Beth Ditto’s new clothing line for Evans and is planning a trip to the Big Apple. And she’s only twenty-two! i-D Online invited Lucy to do a step-by-step guide to recreating the super hot a/w pastel eyebrow trend.
1. Before applying foundation, prep the skin with a primer and/or moisturiser. For this look, I used a lightweight foundation to even out Suki’s skin tone. Lightweight foundation is best applied with a large buffer brush.
2. To give Suki pastel brows, I needed to tone down the colour of her natural brows and achieved this using a concealer pencil. I mixed MAC Pure White and Landscape Green Chromalines to create a pastel greeen colour; I love mixing colours to create unique shades. This was applied to brows using a small angled brush. A cotton bud dipped in cleanser can be used to neaten edges.
3. Black eye shadow was applied to create contour in the eye sockets; you should always follow the natural socket of the eye. I added a sharp point on the edges for a dramatic effect.
4. I cut black sequins in half and placed three under each eye with eyelash glue. If you’re doing this at home apply a small blob to the sequin and leave for five minutes.
5. A MAC Crème Colour Base in ‘Virgin Isle’ was then used as blusher applied with a small, rounded contour brush. This is best applied to the top of cheekbones and around the temples and forehead using circular motions.
6. To finish, I applied MAC Lip Erase with a lip brush for simple, nude look.
