Behind The Scenes on the ELLE Beauty Shoot

Watch our behind the scenes on a Dubai beauty shoot video


By Sophie Beresiner


This is what we're thinking: "Oh (expletive), its bikini season".


Thus began the thought process for a beauty shoot with a difference. This one would talk about achievable beach confidence results through cheating, gentle exercise or even makeup tricks. We even had L'Oreal Paris and global makeup genius Val Garland on board to show us how. Model Leah De Wavrin braved the Dubai winter (it was roasting hot) in a selection of Herve Leger bikinis and Sophia Webster shoes and we made a new model of what we want to look like on the beach.

Here's how the shoot happened. It's out now in the July issue of ELLE UK. Don't miss it.
