Summer is everything I can think of when I look out the window and see this gloomy UK weather and people layered in tons of clothes, freezing and rushing around. My heart has started to beat faster when I found out that well-known brand Swimswear365 announced the competition in collaboration with The Kempinski Hotel, which is located in the gorgeous Soma Bay (you can check this amazing resort HERE). The rules were so simple that I decided to give it a try. The only thing I had to do in order to participate in the contest is make a number of collages that will show how I will style and photograph a swimwear shoot while I’m there.
I absolutely love this swimsuit by Swimswear365 and I think it perfectly matched the design of a SPA in the Somabay Hotel. I’m a huge fan of this porcelain print that was featured in a couple of major collections of the previous years.
It gives me a very girly feeling, so I would style it with a touch of gold and white accessories, such as a turban and sunglasses. I would also paint my nails in white and use a hint of a lip gloss to make the face a bit more brighter.
Black&Gold became a classic combination and I think this will work very well in the light of a sunset. The golden feathers on the sandals would perfectly match the ear cuff and give the whole look an exotic feeling. To make portraits look good I would use golden eyeliner to make the eyes pop out and look brighter.
I miss my summer tan so much! When I was making this collage I decided to use this tan bikini to highlight the beauty of a tanned and toned body. The fabric of this bikini looks satin to me, that’s why I decided to keep look of the texture the same, choosing metallic sandals and satin turban. Nude colour of lipstick and a little touch of a highlighter will compliment the colour of the tan and will make a face more sculptured and eye-catching. I wanted to leave this look accessories-free, but then I thought that ‘little ear cuff never killed nobody’ in Fergie’s voice and added this massive cuff to the collection.
I hope that you liked my post and 3 collages I have done for this contest. Feel free to join the #5DaysOfSoma to win an amazing trip to Egypt with A-list team and see how your vision becomes a reality!
