I have decided that the model on my front cover
will have dark makeup, brown/dark lipstick and
a more subtle eye makeup compared to the lips.
I have come to this conclusion as I want my
magazine to have a 90s vibe to it, and I am
aware that in the 90s, dark looks were very
trendy. As my target audience are people who
would’ve been born in the 90s, this vibe will
appeal to them a lot.
Upon doing research, I have found that denim
and bright colours were very popular in the 90s.
In have created a mood board specifically for
outfits which would’ve been very fashionable in
the 90s and as I want my magazine to have a 90s
vibe to it, I focused explicitly on this area. From
this mood board, it is clear that I want the
model in my front cover to depict these types of
I have created two mood boards for of the colour scheme
that I am considering for my music magazine. The first
mood board uses vibrant and distinctive colours 9pink,
blue and white), whereas the second one is darker and
the colours are similar to one another (purple, blue and
black). My aim is to have a colour scheme that appeals to
my target audience which is why I have chosen these two
colour schemes. To decide which colour scheme I go with,
I will create a questionnaire and ask people who are my
perspective target audience (ages 16-24) as they are who
will be buying my magazine. For my colour scheme, I used
images of my star image as her style is the same as what I
want my magazine to be. I want to use a minimal colour
scheme so each colour can stand out on its own.
