Junior beauty editor Maybe Corpaci takes us behind the scenes on June’s beauty feature, Beat the Chill Beautifully.Inspiration for the shoot? I wanted to produce a shoot showing skin and winter textures, hence the choice of mohair blankets, a hide carpet, chunky knits and faux fur. Photographer? I shot once again with local photographer Ulrich Knowblauch. The brief wasn’t easy due to the amount of skin that was exposed and I loved the feminine, soft way he captured Summer and Emma’s bodies as well as the different textures. Models? Summer and Emma from Boss. Their gentle features and flawless skin were perfect for the shoot. Make-up artist and hairstylist? Alet Viljoen from Supernova CM did both hair and make-up on both girls. We barely touched their faces and she did the bare minimum to enhance their features and give their skin a natural radiance. Favourite shot? I love the opening shot of Emma. The bare, porcelain skin mixed with the soft palette and textures make for a very delicate yet powerful picture.
