A recent image from last Friday’s beauty photo shoot with photographer Martin Higgs.
Model Katy Louise
Foundation I used is HD Foundation by Kryolan. I used a dark shade to contour the face, and I used a lighter shade to highlight the face. To add some glow to the face, I mixed in some Kryolan Shimmer Event Foundation. This adds light reflecting qualities to the skin, and photos amazingly.
On the eyes I placed some Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge, up to the socket line and in a winged out swoop. To help keep that in place as its a creamy product, I placed a metallic eyeshadow over the top from Sleek.
To create the Black liner, I used Lime Crimes uniliner in Quill. To gain a steady line, I suggest you use your little finger against the cheek to counter balance yourself. I place this just above the socket line following the swoop of the eyeshadow. And I also placed this along the top lash line, flicking outwards on the outer edge, but not quite meeting the top line.
For the Purple glitter line I used the Purple uniliner from Lime Crime and I followed the Black line but along the top side of it. Once that dried I used Lit Cosmetics glitter glue over the top of the paint & then I pushed Lit Cosmetics glitter in a Purple onto the glue.
I have done a write up on the lips in a previous post last week!
Here are some behind the scenes images of my Amphibian makeup look.
You can see a close up of the paper eyelashes I made, with the lace & crystals added on.
Also, the pieces I made for the head from foam paper. After cutting to shape I airbrushed all the pieces creating a gradient, then I glued all the crystals & beads on, added lace behind all the cut out sections, and finally I placed in some tacking pins at the edges to create spiked looking accents.
In the middle you can see the makeup after I applied all the pieces, before shooting. And on the left is a before & after of the model!

This is a close up of the lips from my recent shoot with Martin Higgs & Sam Englebrecht.
On the lips are Lime Crime’s ‘Kaleidoscope’ & ‘Candy Apple’.
Resembles a galaxy, what with all the glitter from the gloss!
I lined the lips using MACs ‘Nightmoth’, colouring in the outside edges. Then I took MACs ‘Brick’ pencil and coloured in the centre of the lips.
Lastly I took the two Lime Crime lip glosses to coat the top of the lip pencil. I used ‘Kaleidoscope’ first and coloured the outside edges, then I used the ‘Candy Apple’ shade to colour in the centre of the lips. I used my Kryolan lip brush to feather the edges of the glosses together. Check out my YouTube Channel for creative makeup looks: www.youtube.com/smiles2310
