In amongst jetting around the world and a busy schedule that includes fashion shows, photo shoots and events - her latest being for two-time grammy award winner and our and favourite kiwi girl, Lorde - we were lucky enough to work with the very talented M.A.C Cosmetics' Senior Make Up Artist for Australia & New Zealand, Amber D on our RUBY AW14 campaign.
What was your make-up brief for the RUBY AW14 campaign shoot?
The goal was to look cool and not too done. We also loved the idea of a glowing face with a subtle white eyeline to keep the look fresh.
What were the key M.A.C products used to create Tatyana’s look?
To make the skin look super fresh I used my fave M.A.C combo of mixing Prep & Prime Natural Radiance Primer with M.A.C Strobe Liquid and massaging it onto the skin. A light correction where needed using Studio Finish Concealer followed by a wash of M.A.C Tint Cream Colour Base around the eye kept the look minimal and clean. The white eyeline was created using M.A.C PRO Pure White Chromaline applied with a M.A.C #210 eyeliner brush.
Have you worked with Steven Chee before? What’s the best thing about working with him?
YES! I have worked with Steven on a previous RUBY campaign. I love how relaxed the days are and how the team always works together so easily to create amazing images, of course there's always a few laughs too.
What’s your favourite thing about autumn?
Excellent layering and outfit options is always the highlight for me plus I love how easy it is to glam it up with a red lip – M.A.C Ruby Woo is always an autumn must have! I am always traveling between seasons so autumn collections are great as they cross over easily depending on the weather.
What’s your favourite piece from our RUBY AW14 collection and why?
The Lux Jeans are my pick for sure – perfect to wear everyday!
What do you love about living in Sydney?
I LOVE everything about it, there seems to be a million places to shop/eat/keep entertained. I also love the light in Sydney, it always seems bright and clear so I guess that's why Australians are so attracted to colour – it just feels happy and optimistic!
What’s your favourite job you’ve done to date and why?
I have been traveling with Lorde recently and doing her makeup for The Grammys and her video for Team was an incredible experience. Overall, my career is full of amazing experiences from the international fashion shows each season to working at the ballet, the circus or on celebrities. It's a crazy ride!
What’s the best location that your career has taken you to?
There are SO MANY!!!! Its impossible to answer as I have fallen in love with many great places on my travels and each for different reasons.
