Getting messy, playing with texture & colour today!
I love oil paintings, and they are the inspiration for this creative mess.
This mobile shot is a small scale practice for something I’ve got in mind to shoot soon!
Check out this quirky contact lens I popped in to go with this makeup look - It’s called ‘Starburst’ and the pair are from CamoEyes.com

One of the colourful makeup looks I created on today shoot for the Loreal Colour Trophy.
For the base I used Kryolan Ultra Cream Foundation palette, and I set it using M&S translucent powder.
I used a mixture of highly pigmented eyeshadows from Grimas, Kryolan & SugarPill Cosmetics -
A tip when you want colours to really pop on the skin is to use a white base before applying the eyeshadow.
NYX jumbo pencil in Milk is a great product to place down first, then blend it out & then place the eyeshadows on top of it.
It will help enhance the true vibrancy of the eyeshadow.
I place some gel liner across the top lid - Bobbi Brown Ink Black.
Then lastly I buffed some Black eyeshadow around the eye to create some depth.
More products from Kryolan today!
I love these lipstains.. These can be worn alone, or under a lipstick that matches your lipstain. It will work as a base for your lipstick, aid longevity of its wear AND leave your lips with a stain of colour should your lipstick wear off after a few hours.

Been demoing lips this past week - This is one I did on myself, a combination of three looks the students sent me.
They thoroughly enjoyed trying this one out.
I took all the eye catching features of the lip-looks they loved, and put them all together!
This one lip look contains texture, striping, ombré, pigment, matte, and vibrant colour clashing!
Had a beautiful bride-to-be makeup trial yesterday. Nicola is getting Wed in October & has chose an autumnal trio-colour-combo for her eyeshadow. The bronzed Orangey Gold really brought out the Green in her eyes.
It nice when some of my clients opt for something complementary to their eye colour. Nic is a hairdresser so she’s familiar with the colour wheel.
For instance, if your eyes are Blue, you can wear Red, Red/Orange & Orange to really make your eyes pop!
Green eyes look bright when wearing Violet, Red & Orange.
Take a look at the wheel and give it ago at home.
