There are pioneers and then there are innovators. Natasha being the latter has created magic in a recent shoot for the weekly Sunday Times. The looks are extremely polished with a brilliant proportion to them, with stress on one feature per look. Natasha explains, 'The lips and eyes are worked upon, using fluid textures that blend and merge beautifully. It’s about international beauty trends, enhancing one’s own beauty without letting the makeup do all the talking! It’s all about effortless beauty ( with a little bit of effort)!'
We bring you as exclusive break down of the looks and how you can achieve them. Natasha shares her vision along with all the lovely products used.
Left: This image depicts modern day intensity. Tones of copper & bronze enhance Sonya's beautiful hazel eyes. A Berry lip colour was applied to compliment the shimmery eye. The look was finished of with textured & tousled hair, tied in a top knot. For this look on sonyas skin Natasha blended “SK II –WHITENING SOURCE SKIN BRIGHTENER’ and mixed it with “laura mercier’s tinted moisturizer “(one of her favourite tinted moisturizers). Natasha blended MACS eyeshadow in bronze all over her lid and penciled her waterline with MAC’S eyepencil Teddy- an intense choclatey brown” and finished it off by enhancing her lashes with LOREALS TELESCOPIC MASCARA IN BROWN. This looks intensity comes from the gorgeous deep burgundy mouth used on Sonya and to create this Natasha used two of her favourite mac lip colors “dark side” ( a plummy burgundy) and ‘odyssey’ (dark raspberry). She blended this to give sonya the ultimate berry pout! Right: This is a representation of a modern * Geisha.* Hina, has given Sonya an asymmetrical Japanese Kabuki bun which Natasha has cleverly complimented with shimmery liquid gold/silver eyes, paired with geisha hot pink mouth and hot pink contours on the cheeks( hot pink being the hottest shade on the international circuit,presently). Natasha used “estee lauder’s bb cream” to give Sonya that flawless canvas. She blended the blush on the apples of her cheeks as will as her cheekbones and used “ MACS blush in full fushia” a super bright hot pink! Her eyes were sculpted with MACS eyeshadows in nylon and swish and her lashes coated with clear mascara for a soft finish. The star of this look was the gorgeous pop pink used on Sonyas lips, ILLASMASQUA lipstick “corrupt”. Natasha drew sonya’s lips smaller to give her a rosebud geisha mouth.

The illusion of thick, perfectly arched brows, coral blush and pale peach glossy lips add a touch of finesse to this stunning look
The products Natasha used for this look were firstly “estee lauder’s BB CREAM”. “Bobbi browns” cream blush stick in “desert rose” was used on her cheeks to give her a beautiful coral flush. On her waterline I used a skin colored pencil a great trick to give a beautiful wide eyed effect. On her lips I used “ Illamasquas” ( im obsessed with their lipsticks!) stunning peach color called “obey”.
