The LOOK Fashion Team Hits Barbados!

To shoot our gorgeous spring fashion stories, the LOOK fashion team were lucky enough to jet off to the Caribbean island of Barbados. The team stayed on the island for eight days at the beautiful Almond Casuarina Beach Resort in St Lawrence Gap. After much location scouting, we decided to shoot our Sport Report story around the hotels amazing swimming pool. 

Kenneth Soh, our make-up artist for the shoot, created a strong red lip for our model, which isn’t easy in 30 degree heat. Here are his top tips on how to get the look in hot weather.

Kenneth recommends going for a stain that lasts, then topping it off with a gloss for comfort and sheen. Brands such as Stila and Susan Posnick have great lip stains in a variety of colours. If you’re not a fan of gloss, try a tinted balm in a strong colour.

For skin, go for a tinted moisturiser or try a blemish balm (BB cream). They combine skincare properties with make-up and usually contain an SPF. Bonus!
