How to apply glitter, best products & techniques.

There is no other makeup product like glitter to add some seasonal sparkle, but unless you want to look like a fairy its worth making sure your glitters looked into place.

Products for adhering loose glitter-

  • Illamasqua sealing gel- ether use a small layer of the gel over your eye makeup, then press glitter over the top. (I would highly recommend pressing on with fingers rather then a brush, as its extremely hard to get glitter out of brushes!) Or mix glitter with gel and press on top.
  • MAC eyeliner mixing medium- Use in the same way as the Illamasqua sealing gel.
  • DUO lash glue- press a very small amount or glue over eye lid using your fingers, then press glitter on top. The only problem with using duo lash glue is after a few hours it can feel sticky and uncomfortable. Also be careful not to get glue in your eye lashes or eyes.

For loose glitter don't be tempted to go for regular craft glitter as it can be made from sharp material that could scratch your eyes. Cosmetic glitter is made of special plastic that is non-toxic. It’s colored with pigment rather than dye, so that the color doesn’t leach out and stain. Cosmetic glitter is much finer than craft glitter, and the individual particles are usually rounded rather than gagged, instead go for specially designed glitter-

  • MAC glitter (The reflects version is my favorite for beauty looks as its fine, but the chunky version is better for fashion photography as it will show up better).

 

  • NYX Loose glitter powder (budget option, though I do prefer MAC reflects).

Tip: Always keep tape near when working with glitter as its the easiest way to pick up any drop down on the face, just rap the tape around two fingers and gently press on skin.

A nice way of applying glitter is using glitter liners, which are like the loose glitter but premixed with gel, this wont work as well for fashion makeup on a large area, but good for easy personal use or for on TV to makeup sure you don't get as much fall down.

  • Urban Decay's Heavy Metal Eyeliner- (good painted on after all eye shadow and liner is applied.)
  • Collection Glam Crystals Gel Eyeliner- (budget alternative, a brilliant makeup artist I've worked with at 'The One Show' recommended this product.)

MAC pro conceal and correct palette makeup review & swatches

MAC pro conceal and correct palette product review

I use the MAC studio finish concealers for areas that need more full coverage like spots, darkness around the eyes and tattoo coverage. Its good to apply a small amount either with a synthetic brush or fingers, then set with powder.
I've just purchased it in a Pro palette of 4 shades -NC15, W10, NC20, NW20 & 2 colour Correctors in Pale Yellow & Pale Pink. These are a slightly different formula to the studio finish concealers, slightly creamer. Also a friend pointed out on instagram that this formula doesn't have the SPF 35 which is better for photographic purposes, as the SPF is what tends to make the product flash back lighter. It costs £35.
The swatches were done on my skin tone, I'm light, about NC15/NC20 in MAC. The palettes come in light, med, med deep & dark.

World Aids Day, MAC Viva Glam makeup

 

 

MAC VIVA GLAM MAKEUP. MAKEUP ARTIST NAOMI MCKEEVER

Photo of me for MAC Viva Glam World AIDS Day. MAKEUP ARTIST NAOMI MCKEEVER

 

December the 1st is World AIDS Day.

Here's what the official world aids day website says.
'What is World AIDS Day?
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.'

I first became aware of this day about 9 years ago when working for MAC cosmetics. MAC donates 100% of the money raised from the Viva Glam  lipsticks. They use the proceeds to help men, women and children affected by aids.

 

The photos I have included in this post are from when I used to work for MAC Bath back in the day. These were taken on World AIDS Day years ago.

 

Eyes:

  • Mylar, Crystal Avalanche, (Highlight)
  • Gleam, Malt (Eyelid)
  • Sketch, Handwritten- eye shadows (bellow bottom lash line)
  • Chromagraphic eye pencil (water line)
  • false lash mascara
  • No.44 lashes

Great Gatsby Fashion, makeup and interior inspiration.

I'm a huge fan of director Baz Luhrmann, with his previous films being Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and Australia! He always seem to combine an incredible combination of stunning visuals, music and fashion, so I knew I was in for a bit of a treat when I heard his new film was The Great Gatsby.  I love 1920s makeup, art deco design and fashion, my only wish is that I was part of the makeup team for the film!

I was watching the extras on the DVD and they spoke about some of the exciting collaborations they had to capture the decadence of the roaring 20s. Miuccia Prada was one of the masterminds behind the costumes, along with Miu Miu. They also worked with Tiffanys for the jewellery, creating some of the pieces from their original archives.

The makeup credits go to MAC and the film’s makeup designer Maurizio Silvi.

Here's what Silvi had to say on the makeup:

“Baz Luhrmann approaches directing his films like a painter, giving strong priority to the looks of each character. In his mind, makeup is one of the key elements used to depict love, struggle, pain and romance”

“When we started preparing for the film, my department and I had to choose which products to use for the two main parties: What we referred to as the Glam party and the Sad and Tawdry party.” In creating The Great Gatsby‘s cinematic look, Silvi employed these four key elements:

1. Foundation

“We based each character’s makeup looks around their costume and hair colour. For lighter skin shades we used Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 in shades such as NW15 and NC20. For darker skin shades we used Matchmaster SPF 15 in shades such as 8 and 9.”

MY MAKEUP FOR OOH LA LATEX SHOOT. PHOTOGRAPHER Julian M Kilsby. Part 3

Before this shoot I designed a ProChart to help me plan the colour palette and the mood of the makeup. This is also a great tool to show the photographer and designer what you envisage for the makeup, without taking the time applying the makeup and then for the designer not to like the look.
