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

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:


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



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



  • studio finish concealer
  • clear lipglass
