I’ve been applying for a few modelling jobs recently and realised I could do with some new head-shots so I decided to have a late-night play after my shoot was cancelled on Monday and take some new self-portraits.
Experimenting with new looks inspires my future projects and this is a really easy way to capture them.
For the first look I wanted to try something quite paired down, with natural-ish ( but still perfectly highlighted with hourglass ambient lighting powders) makeup and messy hair. I wanted to keep the colours neutral so I decided to do with this ivory and nude triangle latexlace bra from my most recent Eustratia collection and added a bit of an edge with some chainmail jewellery by Richard Ayres. When I shot these, I assumed they would require quite a lot of perfecting, but I was surprised to find they turned out just the way I wanted and this is probably the least edited image I’ve ever released.
I decided to stick with the bras from the latest collection so for the second look, I wore the blue lace bralette and paired it with the pony ear headpiece that I’ve needed a close-up picture of for a while. This is a slightly darker look and I decided to finish it off with a bit more contouring and my new metallic purple lipstick from lipstick queen.
For the final look, I wanted something a bit more flirty and feminine so I added some cat-eye liner and a coral liquid lipstick by hourglass, as well as a bit of mac glitter on the lid. I swept my hair over to one side and wore the latexlace Aurora bra, also from the new collection.
Please let me know which look is your favourite!
Last weekend we had a BBQ in the sun and walked home through the park, under a canopy of cherry blossoms. It was very warm but I’m not quite convinced it’s summer yet so I opted, as usual, for a multi-layered, mostly black outfit.

Last weekend I went to a friend’s party. I knew there was going to be dancing involved so I wanted to wear something comfortable, but still interesting. I chose a long, sheer shirt over some leggings, my new statement harness belt and some flat shoes.
Of course it’s impossible to take pictures in my house without a dog getting in so here’s one with Charlie.

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate! It’s finally time to share the annual Eustratia winter photoshoot images.
We had a great team this time, working with Toria Brightside, who has been by my side throughout the creation of this latest collection and has a great understanding of the pieces and reuniting with Victoria who has been part of 4 previous collection shoots and has just returned to modelling after a break to start a family. The makeup was provided by Faye Aydin.
We shot this set in my house, I love shooting at home because we have the freedom to shoot for as long as we like and move everything around to fit the scene.
The new items will be added to the website in the next few days.
