It’s the Vogue shoot that’s had the world talking. Hate it or love it, we all want to know about it!
The latest ground breaking news we have from the photo shoot is that Baby North did not – we repeat, DID NOT – wear makeup for her Vogue debut.
Yes that’s right, the daughter of the “world’s most talked about couple” went completely au naturel with her barefaced, baby face and frankly I am relieved. My morals as a makeup artist are extremely satisfied in hearing this news, where in the world of celebrities, nothing is too controversial.
Aaron de Mey, the makeup artist for the shoot, tells Cosmopolitan magazine,
“She didn’t need it. She is such a little cutie.”
And indeed she is; with perfect, fresh skin, and slightly confused expression, North made her Vogue debut in the nude, cuddled by her bare chested, doting daddy, Kanye.
Kim on the other hand, did not go makeup-free herself, but she did agree to a more minimal makeup look than she is usually seen wearing . Aaron reveals that Vogue creative director Grace Coddington “wanted to simplify her look because Kim is naturally gorgeous.”
Aaron says they stayed away from the contouring techniques Kim’s beauty team are famed for using in her makeup routine. “She has such a beautiful complexion and I really wanted that to show through,” he says. However, they did apply a smoky eyeshadow to her eyes to bring out her “amazing lashes.” It goes without saying that less really is more and maybe Kim will ditch the highly contoured look she normally goes for.
I personally thought Kim looked incredible in the shoot and we weren’t the only ones. Kanye gave his fiancé his seal of approval too,
“He thought that her makeup looked very beautiful, but definitely had opinions on the dresses and the styles he liked best, but it was in a supportive way — it was lovely to see them interact with each other.”
