BM have been working with amazing local designer Ailsa to create a lookbook for her new collection featuring model Ildiko.
Please allow me to introduce myself…….. I’m Lucy Brown, make up artist at BM Models. Over the next few months I shall be sharing with you what I believe to be the some of the best skincare products on the market, based on my years of experience as a make up artist in both the fashion and commercial sectors.
As a Make-Up Artist, my job with every client begins by preparing the skin, before applying any make up. With the vast ranges of skin types I work with on a daily basis it’s essential to have a core stock of products that work across many skin types.
Having worked for a number of prestigious skincare and make up brands over the years, so as you can imagine I have tried and tested a lot of products. However there was little question over the first product I’m going to recommend to you….
To start with I think I have to name one of my favorite products ever (ever ever ever!) one that I couldn’t possibly imagine living without: Estee – Lauder, Advanced Night Repair Serum.
The serum goes on both AM and PM underneath your moisturiser.
The catchphrase for this wonder product is “Your skin’s insurance policy in a bottle”. It repairs, protects, hydrates and evens the skin tone. However I believe its most important feature is that this helps the skin repair itself from UV and environmental damage, it also forms a protective layer that protects the skin against these factors for the day ahead.
It’s won numerous awards over the years, this year alone it has already won:
Winner of Marie Claire Prix D’Excellence de la Beauté 2010: Best Beauty Care
Winner of Woman & Home Best Beauty Buys 2010 (Readers’ Choice): Best Night Treatment
Winner of InStyle Best Beauty Buys 2010: Best Serum
Buy it! Love it!

Just thought I’d share this gorgeous shoot of BM Model’s Imogen. Make up artists Lucy Brown and Roger Williams, concept by Daniel Regan and Styling by our very own Bethania Matheus. The A team Dusted in Imogen wight and adorned her with feathers; Greek Goddess or Fallen Angel? You decide!

Bethania’s Catwalk Classes taught several of the Miss Teen Galaxy 2010 entrants on how to best present themselves at the upcoming event.
The title of this post say it all really: WE NEED NEW MODELS for our Brighton Model Agency! We’re looking for fresh faces to join our brigade of Brighton Models and are holding open model castings this week at our offices in Brighton. Please note that these castings are by appointment only and all applicants need to register via our Registration Form on our website.
We’re looking for both male and female models, so spread the word guys – and if you think you have what it takes, get applying!
Another highlight of the week was watching top model Bethany walking for the final of the biannual FAD competition. FAD is a marvelous organisation that seek to prepare young people for the realities of working in the fashion industry through a series of workshops, competitions and work placements. The standard of work nurtured by FAD is of such a high standard that is is given the honour of being showcased each season on the Vauxhall Fashion Scout Catwalk as part of London Fashion Week.
BM Models were there in force to watch our girl Bethany on the catwalk and had the pleasant surprise of bumping into our old friends – fashion production super-duo Reeme and Nina aka The Collective Biz.

We were delighted to receive an invite to Pierre Garroudi’s exclusive showcase of his A/W 2010 collection. Having preciously been a guest member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture
alongside the likes of Christian Dior, Givenchy, Christian Lacroix and Chanel – Garroudi now works from his south London Gallery – also the venue for his biannual showcases.
Obviously a fashion show wouldn’t be a fashion show unless it was running the standard half an hour to an hour late. Luckily enough we were in the good company of top artistic photographer Max Letek and long standing good-time girl Emma Walsh – and there was a pub directly opposite. Sorted.
The show itself was well… red. The dresses were all sultry red in colour, and avant-garde in design – either clinging daringly to the models’ figures or framing them with lashings of crimson fabric.
The hair was also red (as were the lips) and defied gravity, ranging from what can only be described as a straight-up-do – towering over the model’s head in one peak to feathered do’s projecting horizontally behind the model. And everything on between. Literally everything.

We’re pretty sure we spotted Zandra Rhodes in the front row too!
