Ladies of the 18th Century

Another exclusive look at my portfolio work.

For my last week of the semester I designed this historical makeup for a media makeup assessment at university. Having heavily researched historical makeup and hair from the Ancient Egyptians to the 1980’s, we were then tasked with a project to recreate our own look based on an era of our choice. I have always been interested in the 18th Century having watched Keira Knightley as Georgiana the The Duchess of Devonshire in ‘The Duchess’ and my vision was to test myself, to try and achieve her beauty, grace and phenomenally tall hair.

Here are my images of the makeup and wig I styled:



Thank you so much to my beautiful model Natascha! Go follow her here at or on Instagram @nataschaelen for look at some amazing makeup!

Let me know what you think in the comments below! Would Keira and Georgiana approve?

Until next time…
