I’m demoing this mask makeup that I created for a photo-shoot a few months back, this week at a local makeup college. It’s so much fun doing this look, check it out and let me know if you would don this on Halloween or even to the cinema to watch a film such as The Avengers! I love it when people dare to go all out just for fun :D
Here is a quick look I created yesterday for a feather & latex shoot.
Blue gradient lips using a LimeCrime lipstick in the centre, and a Blue pout paint from Sleek around the outer edge of the lips.
For the eyes, it’s a simple look. I didn’t want anything to precise or neat, so I used a splayed out brush and dragged Black face paint up and out around the eyes. I made a stencil with tiny hole in and sprayed through it using my airbrush. I filled in the centre of the lids with the same Black face paint, and sprayed over it with my airbrush for a more opaque look. Then I added a hint of watery blue to the edges, using the same technique.
I placed some AB Flip Swarovski crystals at the corners just to spruce it up a bit. Feather lashes added to match the feathers in the outfit - Done!
Tree Frog Inspired makeup creation.
Martin Higgs often gives me challenges when it comes to makeup - this being one of them! So after receiving some tree frog images from Martin, I came up with this look!
I used some coloured pencils as the base of these bright colours. Then I layered brightly coloured eyeshadows and then finished off using my Dinair Airbrush over the top to create this look.

Raw image from the Fire & Ice shoot I did the makeup for.
As the hair was crimped and put up in a flame shape, I wanted to emphasise the “flames” by carrying the makeup up from the eyes, into the hair, mimicking the wave of a flame.
I used my Dinair airbrush to get a graduated colour.
A few days ago, I posted about shooting with model Kate Errington and photographer John Farrar. I also uploaded one of the images from that shoot - American themed. We this is a mobile shot of the makeup I created for the second look. • I took a sheet of Acetate and put in onto of a drawing I had sketched out of a mask shape. I used a blade to cut out the shape & that was my template. • I placed the cut-out template over Kate’s face and sprayed White from my Dinair range, all around the edging and over her eyes. I did this so that the colours to be sprayed on top would be as vibrant as possible. • Something to remember when spraying colours into one-another; use a “feather” like motion at the edges of the colour, because if the colour is too concentrated then it won’t blend well with the next shade. • Next, I took the Blue shade and sprayed in specific areas like the corners, and the bridge of the nose. • Then, I sprayed Green around the eye sockets, and bottom on the mask under the eyes. • I blended Pink over the brow bone and into the middle of the Blue at the bridge of the nose. • Red was next, I sprayed it at the edges of the mask to meet the Blue. • Then lastly for this section, I used White again to re-highlight the areas I left White. To really make the mask “pop”, I took the cut-out piece from the mask stencil and placed it over the colours, matching it to the shape I’d sprayed on. I filled my airbrush with Black & sprayed around the outer edge of the mask, making sure to feather the edges into the skin - this makes it appear more like a shadow. For the lips, I sprayed them White first, and then Purple over the top of that. And to finish them off, I used my shader stencil to edge my way around the lips in order to line them with Black spray, topped off with a gloss!

I was one of the MUAs on the shoot for Latimer Couture’s look books. This is one of the make-up looks I created for their ‘Fashion Range’ on the beautiful model Hannah Devane from Britain & Irelands Next Top Model.
I used my airbrush & folded paper as a stencil to create the strong lines. I started with ‘White’ as a base colour, so all of the Blues would really stand out!
