For all you liquorice ‘shoe lace’ lovers, check out this hair piece I created using them! Funky eh?
I secured bun rings to the centre of my models head using bobby-pins, then I fed the liquorice laces from the inside of the bun rings, down the outside making sure to cover the visible areas of the bun rings. I used pre-rolled laces for the front of the hair line, and then I adorned those with little bows I made using the laces. Yummy!!!
Ok, so here is the “Soft Smokey Eye Tutorial” that so many of you have been waiting for!! Go check it out and please subscribe to my channel :)
Hair & MakeUp I created today for DJ Krystal Roxx!
Krystal is known for her “Bouffant” hair, so I decided to create an alternative version inspired by a rockabilly look that pop artist ‘Pink’ was rocking recently.
And for the makeup, I went for a Black glossy eye & muted lip- bringing the Old-Skool rock into 2013
The top three mobile shots are from when I finished the makeup. And the bottom three after we finished tweaking the hair, ready to shoot!
I created a quick soft bronzed smokey eye using my two new Illamasqua products; Gleam & Enrapture.
As these are creams, they will crease in the socket but I don’t mind that look.
If you’re not a fan of it, you can set the creams in place but firstly applying a primer to your lid, then applying eyeshadows over the creams. By sandwiching the products, you’ll help prevent them creasing as quick & the colours will be more dense, thereby making them last longer.
My favourite colour to apply over Enrapture is Woodwinked by MAC. It’s very similar, bronze in tone & has an orangey appearance when blended out. Lovely for the summer!
I applied the Enrapture over the entire lid, and then applied Gleam - Aurora to the brow bone & centre of the lid.
By applying the highlighter to centre of the eyelid, it reflects the light which makes the lid space look larger. Where this product is very sheer, it doesn’t really effect the colour of the Enrapture.
Totally in LOVE with these two cream products from Illamasqua!
Gleam is a soft highlighter which can be applied to the face & body to accentuate areas such as the cheek & brow bone, giving a subtle fresh glow to wherever its applied.
Enrapture is a ‘Liquid Metal’ which is metallic & reflective. This deep bronzed shade looks beautiful on the eyelids when you have a tan. These two teamed together on the face is phenomenal.
Yesterday I did a makeup demo at South Essex College for students.
I had a couple of hours to showcase two creative makeup looks from shoots I’ve done in the past. Here is a quick snap shot of my superhero mask - adapted using different colours.
To get the definite line when creating this look, my preference is a piece of kitchen roll taped across the forehead using scotch tape.
Then spray on the colours. To see how I created this look, here is my tutorial: http://youtu.be/tUHYtGpviPc
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
