No rest for the wicked for our BNTM girls! This week saw the remaining contestants be woken up just as they fell asleep for an overnight photoshoot with Sleek makeup!
The girls jumped in a car just past 11pm and set off to North East London, Walthamstow for a photoshoot like no other. The girls arrived just past mid night and they were greeted by Sleek’s brand/marketing representative who informed the girls they were shooting with the official make up brand for BNTM series 11… no pressure!
The girls were put straight into hair and make up and received their ‘model mail’ for the challenge. This photoshoot was judge-less! Nicky wanted to test the girls by making them feel like they had been booked for a job as a professional working model. So it was all down to the girls, Sleek and the photographer. The girls really needed to impress the judges this week! (spoiler coming soon). They would NOT want to be eliminated now!

Striking and effortless describes Olivia perfectly! Olivia was first on set bringing instant energy and constant ‘bitch faces,’ exactly what the client wanted. We gave Olivia a braided half up do to complete her look. This hair is perfect for the up-coming festival season so why not learn how to get the look the judges LOVED yourself! Watch Paul Edmonds create Olivia’s hair by watching our ‘Get The Look‘ on YouTube now!
Jennifer was out of her comfort zone but WOW did she bring it! From the moment she was on set she continuously gave the client what they wanted, working the make up! Jennifer is super professional and had the best range of photos to choose from.
Tallulah’s tip to survive the night was coffee! This worked in her favour as she brought so much energy and passion to her shoot! The client also loved her by telling Abbey she was one of the favourites from the night. We gave Tallulah a soft top knot with soft natural waves for movement and playfulness.
Alannah was rocking her shoot until the dreaded word ‘sexy’ was mentioned by the client! Unfortunately this knocked her confidence but Alannah we love sexy and we think you absolutely owned this shot and so did the judges! A sleek hair up do was picked for Alannah to give her that rock chick edge. Use Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer finishing spray to hold a high pony into position while adding shine.
This was so Simone’s thing! The set, the hair and the clothes. Her textured curls fitted the brief and theme of distorted dreams making this such a hypnotic shot! Use Shu Uemura Detail Master, a directional fixing spray for a workable long lasting hold to get Simone’s look.
Chloe was the last to shoot at 5.15am, her rock chic hair transformed her baby face giving her a cutting edge against her previous shots. To get chloe’s fierce look use Shu Uemura’s Master Wax to place the hair into a strong striking position.
The Fiji Challenge
The girls arrived at their location for the day to find Nicky underwater! This was a great way to tell the girls that their challenge was going to take place in a pool! Fiji, also a BNTM sponsor are looking to replace the image on their current bottles and the girls brief was to shoot using the iconic Fiji flower.

Chloe shot first, and with the other girls watching she felt very nervous! Hilary loved her image and Abbey thought it brought mystery.
Simone’s sheer determination enabled her to get this shot. Her image is beautiful and got her joint favourite on the day!
Tallulah loved Nicky’s whale sounds! We love seeing the judges on set supporting the girls through their challenges.
Jennifer was immediately terrified but once again Nicky was on hand by offering to jump in and save her if needs be! Jennifer has a fear of water and found the challenge extremely hard but she was determined to fight her fear and for her place in the competition. Jan fitted a wig to Jennifer to give her a mermaid look to fit the brief and the brand.
Alannah was a real life mermaid! She naturally took to the challenge so elegantly and graceful, making it look super easy! Her shot was dramatic and eye catching and the client loved it!
Olivia also found the challenge really hard but she still managed to be a sense of elegance to her picture. But who would survive this week’s elimination and gain a ticket on a plane to Cape Verde!?
So next week the girls are off! We can’t wait to see Olivia, Alannah, Jennifer, Tallulah and Simone in the sun! Will the girls embrace it or will the heat be to much for them? Tune in to Lifetime, Thursday 9pm to see what we got up to aboard.
