2b T.Wholohan: Dark Angel


This is the second part of a shoot I did with ANTM runner up Alex, shot at Sun studios by Tom Wholohan & styled by Ash Syne.  Angel dipped in black leather – The Title Dark Angel seemed fitting!  The skin was super highlighted, defined bronzed cheek bones, a nude lip & lots of lashes

surface. Elizbeth Arden 8hr cream – Apply to lips & leave to sink in.

Foundation – Dior Nude Air – Light-weight
long lasting serum foundation – melts onto the skin leaving even skin tone with a semi matte finish.

Ambient Lighting BronzerContour – Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer – Lightly dusted under cheekbones – this has a very strong colour pay off so use sparingly on fair skins. Give a beautiful glow to skin.



Tom ford Shade & Illuminate mixed with Josie Maran Argan Illuminator – why not use both! I apply the argan illuminator first with a small blending brush – this has a warmer tone to it, then I wanted it to feel a bit more icey so i pressed  the Tom Ford over the top with my fingertips.

Eyes – I used the ‘Naked’ eyeshadow form the Urban Decay Original NAKED palette all over the lid and the building up the intensity with ‘Buck’ from the same palette in the crease of the eye. For the wing i used MAC’s Blacktrack get liner with an angled brush.Unknown

Lashes – Femme Fatal by Lash Republic
