CELEBRITY CAMPAIGN – Fashion Bloodhound. MUA Naomi Mckeever

I recently did the make-up for a celebrity campaign for Fashion Bloodhound, a website of pre-owned designer pieces. For this campaign the celebrities donated their designer items, with all proceeds going to the breast cancer charity Too Many Women.

Here are some of the photo's from the shoot.....

Joseph Young Wedding + Promo Filmmaking, MUA Naomi Mckeever

Joseph Young is an extremely talented videographer, I've had the pleasure of working with on a few occasions.

His work mainly consists of Promos and wedding films, each of them having a polished cinematic style.

I'm really excited because I've managed to book him for my wedding and thought it would be selfish to keep his skills to myself, so to all your brides I would suggest you contact him to capture the magic of your big day.

Here's some examples for his latest work-

World aids day – Viva Glam

I wanted to do a quick post for world aids day today. I'm just about to leave to do the make-up for a fashion show that MAC has arranged to help raise money and awareness.

I really admire MAC for donating 100% of the money raised from the lipglosses and lipsticks. They use the proceeds to help men, women and children affected by aids.

The fund was started in 1994 and has had many famous spokespersons and campaigns.

In this post I will focus on current spokesperson Lady Gaga and include the first campaign she supported, alongside Cyndi Lauper.

Makeup lesson with Naomi Mckeever – Male grooming

In this post I'm going to cover what products and techniques I use when doing make-up on men, whether its for TV, Fashion or just everyday use.

The product you select will depend on what the make-up is being used for. When I do male make-up for TV I tend to just use a small amount of concealer in target areas then a MAC mineralize skinfinish powder as it gives a sheer coverage that isn't picked up on HD, then a translucent powder for touch up to absorb oil.

Julian Lennon, Noel Gallagher and Ricky Wilson- MUA Naomi Mckeever/ Jo Whiley- MUA Helen Harrall

For this Jo Whiley programme on Sky Arts Noel Gallagher, Rickey Wilson and Julian Lennon really didn't want to look like they had make up on, so in this case I had to be very controlled in my product placement. I keep checking on the screen to make sure they don't have any excess shine. When touching up the powder I use a brush that doesn't shed too much hair such as the #188 MAC brush, making sure to miss such areas as the eye lids, as these can become oily and show up on screen. I worked on this programme with another talented make-up artist called Helen Harrall, she did a beautiful job with Jo Whiley's make-up.

The other type of make up would be for photographic use; in this case you can get away with adding more products.

When preparing the skin take the time to really massage your moisturiser in to stimulate the blood flow so the face looks fresh. Work some matte lip conditoner on the lips, so they are hydrated but not shiny. Pat eye cream round the eye area.

Perfecting skin / MUA Naomi Mckeever / Photographer Yvette Bessels

Apply a sheer foundation like MAC face and body to even out skin tone.

Then with a small brush go in to any areas of the face that need more coverage with concealler especially round the eyes and nose. I like MAC moisturecover because it gives good coverage but doesn't look heavy. Set with powder. Softly contour with bronzer to warm up the skin and to add some dimension.

Defining brows / MUA Naomi Mckeever / Photographer Yvette Bessels

I find the best way to define brows without them looking too heavy is to use a MAC #205 - Mascara Fan Brush and combing eye shadow through the hairs. After set with clear brow gel.

The same MAC #205 - Mascara Fan Brush brush works brilliantly to add mascara as it keeping the lashes separated and feathery. If you want to lift the lashes without adding colour use a clear mascara.

Powder check / MUA Naomi Mckeever / Photographer Yvette Bessels

Before they go to start modelling its worth having a quick powder check to make sure the skin doesn't look oily. Then check on camera to see if anything needs to be added or taken away.

 

Here are some photos from 'The new vintage clothing company' shoot, where Yvette Bessels was the photographer and I was the make-up artist.

Morticia Addams inspired make-up, Naomi Mckeever

I was watching Addams family values and wanted to take elements of Morticia's makeup. I was on a makeup job so I didn't want a look that was too scary!

Morticia is normally lit in a film noir style, so I lightened the high points of my face with a lighter foundation. The wig was from ebay.

Immortal Muse- Josephine Baker

(June 3, 1906 – April 12, 1975)

Dancer, singer, and actress.

Josephine Baker was a truly inspirational woman. She broke down barriers and fought through prejudice.

Baker dropped out of school at the age of 12 and lived as a street child in the slums of St. Louis, but that didn’t stop her travelling to France to progress her career.

She was the first female African American to star in a major motion picture and she became a world-famous entertainer, even posing for the artist Picasso.

Ernest Hemingway called her "… the most sensational woman anyone ever saw."

Baker is still influential in the fashion world today.

Here are some examples from Tush Magazine - Photographer Ellen von Unwerth, hairstyling from Christoph Hasenbein and make-up from Loni Baur.
