Hi folks.

I'm doing a favour for a friend at the weekend. She wants me to style her - from her wardrobe - do her make up and shoot a few pictures of her.

The brief was elegant and sexy.

I can do the photo part and personally I've got a good sense of style. I'm also great with my own make up, however I don't apply it to others.

Any advice on makeup? She's a medium skin tone with dark eyes and dark, short hair. Tall, thin and 50. She's going to be great to photograph I just need to get the look right.

Any advice on clothing? I'm thinking elegant black dress with tights and heels (might lend her my Louboutins).

And most of all, location? Where? Nearby we have the beach, woods, park etc. I can't really think how any of that could be elegant...

Here's a photo of her for reference:

been really busy..just came across your question..
hope you can use my ideas for future reference:

medium skin with dark hair & eyes can take a strong lipstick.
classic red or deep rose in a satin finish. nothing glossy.
chanel gabrielle is a gorgeous red.

armani makes the best pencil liners.
again keep the look subtle and elegant.
chanel makes the best shadows.
neutral colours well blended but not too smokey.
you want the eyes defined not over powered.
mascara mascara mascara...or false lashes.

foundation: dior or armani
blend with damp sponge or just use your fingertips to blend.
no concealer needed, just use the thickened makeup at the top of the bottle.
no contouring on anyone over 20. artists trick..use the lipstick as blush.
creme blush is best for women at 50.

hair: slicked back or lifted and edgy..or softly curled but looking undone. break the curls up with your fingers.
great product: phyto 7 creme leave in mosituriser.

black dress..NO tights ( maybe it's a NYC thing..but hardly anyone wears tights with a black evening dress)
and YES to Lou's.

a night shoot in the park ( provided it's safe) can be a very dramatic look.

the beach.. a woman walking barefoot on the beach in a gown..would be perfect composition.
would make one wonder where is she going..or whom is she waiting for?
This was such a nice fashionable style tips you have share here for photoshoot. I like it. Hope this will loved by all who and up here.
