Cuba immediately conjures up images of uber cool cars in vibrant colours, fat cigars being smoked on street corners and sexy women drinking strong black coffee on the balconies.

I was just back from 3 weeks in Cuba and needed to do something different. Inspired by the light, drama and unique Cuban style I had seen on my travels, so I contacted Jo Kemp (Photographer)

Say the words colour, different and unique all in the same sentence that is where we are heading for 2019.

Makeup and Hair can change a look completely with different colours and textures.

Luckily we had the perfect model for the look, sassy and curvy, with gorgeous flawless skin and super shiny black locks. Working with Teresa Makeup and Hair Artist.

I was looking for a dramatic, confident, energetic look with a with a hint of a rebellious young runaway bride.

Marie from Paradiso Barcelona helped to complete the edgy sexy feel with an eclectic mix of exotic and tropical flowers.
