MAC Spring summer trend Ath-elite

 

Ath-elite is the skin led trend of this season with plump, ultra hydrated healthy skin. Using glossy highlights not shimmer. To achieve this look on the skin you will have to invest time massaging in layers of moisturiser, minimal foundation and concealing only where needed.

Catwalk hair and makeup inspiration for brides

 

Some people think that all catwalk trends are avant-garde theatrical designs, that would be a no go area for brides.  To counter this I've put together some of my highlights of spring/summer 2012 and autumn/winter 2011, that I think would work beautifully for brides.

Immortal Muse- David Bowie

Ever since I watched David Bowie in the Labyrinth he's been a source of inspiration. Early in his career he morphed himself into his androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust. His iconic makeup looks are often transcribed into current trends whether it be similar colour palettes or shapes. I was asked at a Sally's shoot to create the lightning bolt; I used MAC paint sticks with pigments on top but in a hot pink in a similar colour to their logo.

 

I found what seems to be quotes from David bowie himself on http://www.bowiewonderworld.com/press/70/7311makeup.htm

Music Scene - November 1973

 David Bowie's Makeup Dos and Don'ts

David tells us that mostly all of his makeup comes from a little shop in Rome, Italy, that imports fantastic coloured powders and creams from India. (He's not telling the name of the store, however!!!) Basic essentials also include a white rice powder from Tokyo's Woolworth's equivalent- Indian kohl usually in black - for his eyes, which he smudges right along the lash line and some, times a little bit on the outside...

He also uses a very light liquid base, sometimes white - sometimes pink or yellow - and applies it with a damp sponge. For stage, David will often use an irridescent base, usually pure white. When he paints that gold cirde on his forehead that's such a hit with his fans he uses a German gold base in cake form bought at New York's Makeup Centre. (He also told us that the little Japanese brushes that the Makeup Centre has for applying powders and paints are much better than anything you can find in Japan!)

Eight hour cream by Elizabeth Arden is what you'll see shining up David's lips and eyelids in photographs, it gives that extra-gloss effect. And a must is that old-fashioned black mascara, (sometimes blue) - you know the kind that you spit on the little brush and it's in cream/cake form... David will often paint waves of colour all the way across his eyes and eyebrows, rather than on the lids only usually in a pink or mauve tone.

In his last few English concerts, Bowie painted tiny lightning streaks on his cheek and upper leg. Once in a while he uses pearlised gloss on his lips in a tan/pink that comes across like a white-silver highlight. And - a warning! He doesn't use glitter too much, because it falls into his eyes when he's performing and it just isn't soft looking enough, he feels. Sometimes he will outline that gold circle in tiny gold rhinestones, stuck on with eyelash glue.

As far as off-stage makeup is concerned, David doesn't wear any base - he uses a light natural moisturiser with rice powder dusted on top - but most often he prefers to show his very light, bare, clear English skin.

London fashion week spring/summer 2012

Just got back from London Fashion Week; I've worked with some amazing makeup artists. I feel as if every time I'm there I learn so much, and come back feeling very inspired.

I've attached link's to a few of the shows I did the makeup for...

 

Christopher Raeburn

Maria Comparetto was the key makeup artist. Helen Harrall was on this show which was a lovely surprise as I'd only just worked with her on a programme for Sky and ITV:

Mac spring/ summer 2011 Trends- Part 4

Terra – Copper

 

Think ‘Makeup through the eyes of a 1970’s makeup artist’...

 

Bronze goddess...

 

mac- ss11- terra copper

 

Caramels and Honeys...

 

Perfectly placed sculpting using monochromatic shades….

Believable bronzed tones.... Natural and not ‘Tan-tastic’...

 

Lush, warm, sculpted...

 

Its un-done perfection!

 

“It’s about using one bronzer – definitely one without sparkle, like our new mineralize Bronzer – with three brushes! Take a 116 to contour the cheeks, a 224 tapered blending to shade the eye and a 219 pencil brush to line the eyes with a soft shadow near the lash line. Add a dash of lip balm and you’re good to go.” – Gordon Espinet

 

“It’s very chic, giving dimensions to the face with a very soft illusion of toffees and warm browns – it’s about putting definition into the face without it looking overly makeup-py” – Lisa Butler

  • Dark Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

Natalie Jane Mitchell and I held a make-up lesson for students at Swindon college on the trends. In this post It includes bits from what we covered with them in our hand-out.

 

My makeup demo for Swindon collage.

 

For this demo I took my influence from the Terra-Copper trend. First I did the demo without filling in the model's brows then added them to demonstrate how to make the look very wearable. Natalie and I went through our tips and techniques for creating these looks and how to work in a backstage environment. Then we got the students to pair up and create a look inspired by the 4 spring summer trends and went round giving them feedback; they did an amazing job showing us they'd really listened to the brief and demonstrated their fantastic make-up skills.

Here are some of the products I used:

Eyes-

  • Gold Pigment
  • Give me Sun! Mineralize Skinfinish Natural to blend through the socket
  • Smolder eye liner
  • clear lipglass taped on top

 

Face-

  • Face and body foundation
  • Give me Sun! Mineralize Skinfinish Natural used as a contour
  • pearl C.C.B

 

Lips-

  • studio finish concealer

Pretty but with a punk edge!

The modern pastel is all about technology and technique – its to do with changing up the texture with a gloss or a super matte finish... it really taps in to the feeling that this is very much an artistic, brave and experimental season” – Nadine Luke
