Video Inspiration: Numero One.

I adore this Numéro cover starring model Daphne Groeneveld. Despite being just about twice her age, I’m going to attempt this makeup look in a video! Perhaps not the high fringe or the fur thing hanging off her head (perhaps Mr Bear could sit on me and hang his tail down?) but most definitely the eyes. They’re fantastic!

I wouldn’t usually do an “inspired by” video, but this is too good to overlook. I’m probably going to make a right pig’s ear of it with all that black eyeshadow, but I’m sure it will be a lot of fun. I’m posting this to make sure I actually DO the video, so feel free to nag if I take too long!

    She looks like a modern Marie Antoinette! Go for it, Ruth. Maybe get some hair curling action in instead of the fur. But you will need to incorporate Mr B now that you’ve given us the idea :) mxox
