We spoke to #Faithfullgirl & Hair and Make-Up Artist, Ashlea Penfold about who she is, how her career started in the industry and how she created both Cameron & Gabrielle's looks for our latest collection, Le temps des fleurs.
"I’m a make up artist from Byron Bay. I grew up on a farm in Lennox Head and started a family at 22 with my husband. I’ve been doing makeup for 15 years."
"I moved to Brisbane when I was 17 and did a super small make-up course and fell in love. There wasn’t a lot of make-up work at the time up this way. I started assisting legend Rae Morris, the rest is history."
"I would have to say fresh, glowy skin. I tend to go with a punchy cheek and a minimal eye. I love a lip stain and accentuating freckles."
"I can’t live without Paul Mitchell Velvet Cream for the ends of hair. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. RMS living Luminizer. Nudestix Hot Paprika Lip Paint (I use it as blush on cheeks and over the nose for a sunkissed look)."
"The team! I really feel that’s what makes a good shoot. I always am drawn to a Midi Dress. I love the Bendita Midi. I also fell in love with the Teatro Floral Print."
"I kept their skin super natural. I started by massaging their skin to get the blood flowing to get the most radiant skin possible. Kept it simple with brushed up brows, fres, juicy cheeks and a ‘just bitten’ lip stain."
"It has just launched. It’s called Base Camp Beauty. Skin care and prepping the skin has always been a huge part of how I do make up. So it felt so natural for me to bring out a Guasha tool. I use it to decrease puffiness and promote healthy blood flow. You’d be surprised how effective it is - it’s a game changer for me."
