Get the Chelsea Look


Get the Chelsea look!

Hands up who saw our Beak Street store featured on E4’s Made in Chelsea last Monday? If you didn’t then you can watch HERE (look out from the 14 minute and 30 seconds mark).

Our International Trainer, Ross, was on hand on the day of filming to help with the star’s makeup needs. He worked his magic on Binky, Louise and Rosie, creating gorgeous looks to make them flawless and camera-ready. We chatted to Ross to get the inside scoop on the day and to find out how we too could get the Chelsea look.

But first, here’s a few snaps from the clip…

So Ross what did you think of the experience?

Loved the experience, it was great to get an insight and be apart of reality tv. I have always been a fan so it was nice to be apart of the experience.

What was it like working with the Chelsea girls?

The girls were so friendly and made me feel so comfortable. Binky is a girl after my own heart, loves to be bronzed so she was the perfect model.

We know you’re used to being filmed for our YouTube channel but were you nervous being on camera knowing you were going to be on E4?

Yeah extremely nervous I didn’t know what to expect, what to say or how natural to be. But the whole scene was so natural I felt exactly the same as if I was in store with a customer. Ha! I would to do it more often.

How to get their looks:

Ross began with Hydra Veil for each of the girls to hydrate the skin and create a dewy finish to their looks. He used Skin Base Foundation to achieve flawless bases, ready for the camera. He then set it with Pressed Powder in 010 to avoid shine. Here’s how he added colour to their makeup…
