Represent by Richie Talboy & Sophie Haig for Bullett
Hair & makeup artist Sophie Haig brought a stripped-back look to Bullett’s “Represent” editorial. She collaborated with photographer-friend Richie Talboy, who was asked to submit an interpretation of social cults. “Our take on it was studying the symbols used by our generation,” explained Haig. “That’s what the hand signals are about in each photo,” like W for whatever and the Blood gang sign.
Using Dior‘s 5-Colour Eyeshadow palette in Blue Lagoon, Haig placed a single line on the models’ eyelids, as seen on the runways; for the pink lip, she picked Dior Addict in 465. “I actually paled the skin,” the hair and makeup artist noted. “I selected a color two shades lighter than the models’ natural skintone and blended it through down to their necks – there was no blush, only Diorskin Nude for foundation and Diorskin Forever powder.” She flat-ironed their hair, slicking it with TRESemmé’s Smooth & Silky No Frizz Shine Spray.
Haig particularly enjoyed the shoot because she, Talboy, and stylist Jennifer Huynh are friends but have never collaborated: “We were really comfortable working with each other. Everyone had so much talent and suggested complementary ideas.”
