We were each given a set of brushes and the colours we needed to recreate the look - and a real model each to work on. Honestly, it's a whole other thing when you're given an actual person to work on - I was terrified of stabbing her in the eye with my brush, but she was so sweet and accommodating although I don't think I have the gentle touch she's used to because she jumped a few times. Oops.

|Foundation, blush and one coat of purple over a base of grey on the eyes|
So, on the eyes, using a base of pale grey, we brushed the entire lower lid with it, and topped over with a slightly irridescent purple shade. We then added to that a dark shimmering grey shade (mine fell all over her cheeks) at the outer corners and then blended in. Gucci did a little walk about to check everyone's work and when she got to mine she said, 'I love how everyone is interpreting the look differently' which I took to be make up artist speak for 'that looks nothing like it should'!

All in all, it was a really good experience though - if only to prove that my make up artist aspirations should really truly stay as just that - aspirations!
