Hunkemöller interviews hair and make-up artist Kimm Bakkers from Amsterdam. Kimm will tell us all about the do’s and don’ts on hair and make-up and gives us an amazing tip for our blog fans!
· Recently you did the hair and make-up for our Winter collection photoshoot. Can you tell us more about the style for this campaign?
The setting of the shoot was a warm and homey feeling with comfy PJ’s. I chose for natural looking hair with a slight curl. The make-up I kept natural, with the focus on the eyes.
· What are the trends for coming Autumn?
This Autumn is all about the 90’s! You see lots of metallics, both embedded in clothing as in nail polish, eye and even on the mouth. If you look at hair, short is trending again.
· What is an absolute do in make-up?
Start with the base, good skin care is a must! Eyebrows are also important. Do not epilate them too thin and bring them into shape with an eyebrow gel.
· What is an absolute don’t in make-up?
An absolute don’t is using too much (visible) make-up. Secondly, is a foundation that is too dark for your skin tone. If you find it hard to choose the right colour, please ask for help from a professional.
· And last but not least: the super tip!
My ultimate super tip is coconut oil! You can buy this product at the grocery store or health food store and is not pricey at all. You can see it as butter, but it melts when you heat it. Once in a while I use this oil as a leave-in conditioner. The next day when you rinse your hair it feels so soft. Besides a conditioner I use this product as an eye cream, night cream, aftersun while I’m on vacation and to rinse my mouth with. It sounds a bit odd but it’s a real hype among celebs. When you rinse your mouth every day with coconut oil you will get whiter teeth. Ideal!
