Simona 1

Last Friday I styled a photoshoot for the Bernese life-style blog Bärner Meitschi. The theme was “modern hippie” and our model Simona fit right into character with her beautiful, long, blond hair.

The blog post can be found here. It features these pretty gold tattoos from My Mantra, which were surprisingly easy to attach.


The photoshoot took place just by the river Aare here in Bern. It was a hot summer afternoon. Temperatures reached about 35°C! Fortunately we could hide from the sun under the beautiful trees alongside the river.


For Simona’s makeup I used earthy, brown shades and laid the focus on the eyes. I kept the face neutral with just a bit of contouring to bring out her features even more. The eyebrows remained untouched for a modern look. Read more about what products I used in my next blog post!


I sprayed the hair thoroughly with Klorane dry shampoo to create volume. For a wilder and more lived-in look I also went through the hair with a comb and teased it quite a bit.

The fashion is a mix of high street and stylist’s own. Perfect outfits for hot summer days! And I strongly suggest that you try out the gold tattoos. They are really fun and look great on tanned skin.
