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.

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.

 

My day as Marilyn. How I did my hair and makeup & where my outfit was from.

I was kindly asked by a cosmetics company in Bath to be their Marilyn Monroe for an event they held to promote their limited edition Marilyn collection. Although I know I'm no Marilyn ringer I thought I'd give it my best shot; I'm always a fan of a bit of dressing up.

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.

Wedding makeup- Photo’s from one of my beautiful brides big day.

Real bride / MUA Naomi Mckeever

I had such a lovely day on this wedding, everyone was warm and friendly, there was an amazing atmosphere.

For the bride I used warm colours to work with her completion, she wanted an illuminating foundation with flawless coverage so I used MAC studio sculpt. I kept the products long wearing and water resistant because it was a hot day and if she's anything like me there will be plenty of happy tears. She is such a lush person, we still keep in contact now.

Bridesmaid and bride / MUA Naomi Mckeever

I did the makeup for all her lovely bridesmaids. The bride wanted all the makeup to flow, as they were all used to wearing various amounts of makeup. She didn't mind if they had different levels of smokiness around the eye's. The bridesmaid in the photo above never wears makeup so I kept her look very natural.

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.

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.
