My ProChart for when I did Rita Ora’s makeup.

 

In this blog post I thought I'd upload the ProChart I designed for doing Rita Ora's makeup for a preformance. I wanted to show the products and technics I used to create the ProChart.

The ProCharts use textured, recycled paper so you can apply makeup straight to them to design your look.

My Heston Blumenthal edible Christmas decoration meal from Hestons Fantastical Food

Me cautiously eating my edible decoration

Just thought I'd upload a photo of me after working at BBC's The One Show; I worked with Helen Harrel making up some of the guests including Heston Blumenthal, he was on the show talking about his new series hestons fantastical food. This Christmas bauble was a Christmas dinner all in one!

I know this isn't linked with makeup but if you're like me and enjoy food programs, here's a link to his new series on 4OD-

MAC Turkish Delights incentive.

I was extremely lucky to be sent to Istanbul in Turkey by the company I work for - MAC cosmetics. They ran a world wide three month competition for their artists. Joe, Sarah and I are from the UK, we went with other artists from every country that has a MAC store. Every MAC artist was so lovely, it felt like one big MAC family.

Here's a video I've made with some of the pictures from the trip.

 

Pixie Geldof for the British fashion awards, with a list of the MAC products I used.

I found some old images from when I did makeup on Pixie Geldof for the British fashion awards in 2009. She wanted a slightly vampy look, with a 90s influence.

My lesson for the talented students at Swindon college.

I had a great day teaching at Swindon college. The day was focused on fashion make-up. Starting by discussing my background in Fine art and a powerpoint presentation of my portfolio going through what I did to create each look.

I gave a demo then held a workshop so they could do make-up on each other.

 

MUA Naomi Mckeever / demo for Swindon college.

For their main makeup workshop I wanted them to get an idea of what you do as the key make-up artist on a catwalk show; for this the key make-up artist works with the designer and key hair stylist to take inspiration from the collection. I acted as the fashion designer explaining my inspiration, which was the painter Paul Gauguin.

Makeup look 2

The look has developed from the first photo's in this blog, where Julian used  moody lighting through to the later pictures which used a lighter lighting set up. I started with olive tones on the eyes then deepened using similar shades but altering the shape of the eye.

 

Face-

  • Heat up the MAC Face & body foundation by massaging it in between the palms of your hand, this will make the product thicker and give more coverage.
  • Use MAC Studio finish concealer where needed.
  • Set with translucent finishing powder.
  • I contoured from the top of the ear to the corner of the mouth with Strada blush.

(For tip's on preparing the skin click on this link - http://www.naomimckeever.com/archives/59 )

 

Eyes-

  • For Integra's eyes I used MAC pro paint sticks in Landscape Green and Black Black, they are great to use as they are highly pigmented with a creamy consistency.
  • I set the paint stick with a deep olive pigment, MAC antique green.
  • Finish with MAC feline eye pencil in the waterline.

 

Lips-

  • The rich burgundy lipstick was Media with clear lipglass to finish.

 

In the final post I will cover the next look I did on the same shoot with Julian, so please come back to visit my site for more tips.

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.
