Great Gatsby Fashion, makeup and interior inspiration.

I'm a huge fan of director Baz Luhrmann, with his previous films being Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and Australia! He always seem to combine an incredible combination of stunning visuals, music and fashion, so I knew I was in for a bit of a treat when I heard his new film was The Great Gatsby.  I love 1920s makeup, art deco design and fashion, my only wish is that I was part of the makeup team for the film!

I was watching the extras on the DVD and they spoke about some of the exciting collaborations they had to capture the decadence of the roaring 20s. Miuccia Prada was one of the masterminds behind the costumes, along with Miu Miu. They also worked with Tiffanys for the jewellery, creating some of the pieces from their original archives.

The makeup credits go to MAC and the film’s makeup designer Maurizio Silvi.

Here's what Silvi had to say on the makeup:

“Baz Luhrmann approaches directing his films like a painter, giving strong priority to the looks of each character. In his mind, makeup is one of the key elements used to depict love, struggle, pain and romance”

“When we started preparing for the film, my department and I had to choose which products to use for the two main parties: What we referred to as the Glam party and the Sad and Tawdry party.” In creating The Great Gatsby‘s cinematic look, Silvi employed these four key elements:

1. Foundation

“We based each character’s makeup looks around their costume and hair colour. For lighter skin shades we used Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 in shades such as NW15 and NC20. For darker skin shades we used Matchmaster SPF 15 in shades such as 8 and 9.”

Here is a list of the products I used on a fashion shoot for 'Photography magazine'. Even though you wouldn't want to cover yourself in oil and water for a every day look, the water resistant products used are still great for long wearing or holiday makeup.

Charity event at Nicola Smyth – Award Winning Hairdressers Leamington spa. My makeup.

Nicola Smyth Hairdressers in Leamington spa organised a charity event to raise money for Myton Hospice and to celebrate their 1 year Birthday.

I did the makeup, whilst they did the hair on the models for the Catwalk show. A makeup appointment with me was raffled off in their auction.

It was a fantastic event, they raised £600. I have had the pleasure of working with Nicola Smyth hairdressers a few times, whether its been weddings or fashion, I'm always impressed with their stunning hair styling, cutting and colouring. I have my hair done with them, and would highly recommend them.

Beauty tips, Embryolisse

moisturizer

Embryolisse

Embryolisse  is a moisturizer that is a skincare must have. From working at fashion week I learnt that it was models' and makeup artists' secret weapon. This moisturizer made by Lait-Creme Concentre has been available in French pharmacies for over 60 years. I use it on my own skin as I have extremely sensitive and dehydrated skin, which tends to react to most products but this one works like a dream.

The only down side is its not easy to get hold of if you don't live in France, so if you go on holiday there its worth popping into one of their pharmacies as its quite cheap there.

Here is a UK based site you can purchase it from - http://www.gurumakeupemporium.com/Embryolisse-24-Hour-Miracle-Cream-Lait-Creme-Concentre-75ml
