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.

MY MAKEUP FOR OOH LA LATEX SHOOT. PHOTOGRAPHER Julian M Kilsby. Part 3

Before this shoot I designed a ProChart to help me plan the colour palette and the mood of the makeup. This is also a great tool to show the photographer and designer what you envisage for the makeup, without taking the time applying the makeup and then for the designer not to like the look.

I would highly recommend any makeup artist to invest in some ProCharts to help you plan, create & communicate your makeup design- www.prochart.co.uk

Here are a few photos from a shoot I did the makeup for; designer ooh la latex, photographer Julian M Kilsby, model is the lovely Jodi Lakin.

The outfits were designed specifically for the shoot.

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

Here are a few photo's from the gorgeous wedding I did the makeup for in Wales. I stayed in the hotel the night before, as it was about 4 hours from my house, and had such a lovely morning with them all. We got the opportunity to get to know each other and have a good old gossip and lots of fun. I did the makeup for the bride, four bridesmaids, two flower girls and a guest.

I had already done the wedding makeup for Kate's sister Rebecca  about 4 years ago, who was one of her bridesmaids.

For Kate's flowers girls the mums wanted a tiny bit of makeup so they felt involved and special, so I used a small amount of blush and a tinted lip conditioner.

The makeup I used on myself and a mini review of a few of my favorite Bourjois products-

 

Face-

MAC- Prep and Prime skin- As you can tell if you have read my previous posts I always use a primer before applying foundation as it gets your makeup to last on your skin, and helps with a smooth application of  foundation.

HEALTHY MIX SERUM FOUNDATION- 16 hour radiance booster- A while ago they had sent me Healthy mix serum which I love for a natural finish foundation. Even though it is a sheer foundation it still covers redness, it has a natural satin finish that mimics the look of radiant skin, not too shiny not too matt.

MAC- Studio finish concealer- I have spot prone skin so need to go back with concealer in target areas, this MAC concealer is a  full coverage.

HEALTHY BALANCE UNIFYING POWDER- This powder is ultra fine so sets the foundation without looking powdery and dry.

 

Eyes-

SMOKY EYES TRIO EYESHADOW- I used the three eye shadows from the 13 brun wood pallet, I've got to say I am picky with eyeshadows but these were easy to blend and did have a good colour pay off. I was a fan of this colour combination  this palette comes with a olive green, warm red and black, these colours suit a lot of people but especially green eyes as the red in the brown will make green eyes look brighter.

LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW- I went back into the outer crease of my eye with the #10 black mineral based eyeshadow as you only need a small amount to create drama.

VOLUME CLUBBING BLACK JACK MASCARA- This mascara is great if you like volume, you can really build up your lashes to create drama.

QUEEN ATTITUDE KHÔL KAJAL- I used this all around my eye and in my waterline, it does last well in the waterline.

 

Lips-

MAC- Oak lip pencil, To the future pro longwear lipstick & clear lipglass.

 

My ProChart using LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW in #4

 

Before a photoshoot with a designer I designed this ProChart using LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW in #4 & QUEEN ATTITUDE KHÔL KAJAL.
