LMB Mastery, a series which showcases our LMB talent’s expertise and artistry, inspired by the annual Hallmark holidays.
CHANTELLE BAKER X VALENTINE’S DAY
The name Chantelle Baker is uttered by the biggest and best, her make-up artistry coveted across the globe.
Painting the most beautiful faces our industry has to offer, Chantelle has slowly created a name-sake signature look for her A-list clientele: a flawless face, bronzed smokey eye and over-drawn lips – the new IT beauty combination that continues to be adored and recreated by many.
For Issue 1 of LMB Mastery, we wanted to further showcase Chantelle’s creative brilliance through a hallmark-inspired beauty look that challenges the traditional “date-night” glam.
With complete creative freedom, we asked Chantelle to craft glam, inspired by “A Modern Valentine”.
Chantelle explores the effect of shine, glow and gloss, as she produces a beauty look that unapologetically romances.

With the new LMB HQ as the backdrop, Chantelle set up her beauty kit, surrounded by floor to ceiling mirrors and rendered concrete walls.
Chantelle sets aside her key products for the look, a focus on glow and shimmer, with a warm-toned base.

What are your tips for amping up your make-up?
In the past, it’s been all about the matte finish. Lately, we’ve seen a rise in the use of glow and shine. The best way to elevate a make-up look is by experimenting with shimmer. By adding it to the eyes you automatically create another dimension to the make-up.
Aside from Valentine’s Day, what inspired you to create this particular look?
I always take into consideration, the colouring and eye colour of the model/talent I’m working with.
For Tegan, I wanted to complement and really highlight her bright blue eyes. I opted for really dewy skin to add to the feeling of a balmy Summer night.
