My messy work setup after today’s bridal makeup trial.
Some key products I rely on when doing bridal looks are;
Bioderma Sensitive - to cleanse the skin.
Illamasqua Hydra & Matte Veils - to add moisture & mattify the skin.
Benefit Porefessional - to smooth out the skins surface.
Kryolan eye primer - to prevent the eyeshadow from moving.
Soft Ochre & Painterly Paint Pots by MAC - to neutralise the eyelid in prep for the eyeshadow.
Matte & Satin finish eyeshadows - I’m not a fan of frosted shadows for bridal.
Dinair Airbrush Foundation - I love this because it is touch proof & water resistant. Perfect for a bride!
Soleil Tan De Chanel - gives a beautiful hint of colour to the skin.
Skindinavia Setting Spray - keeps all the makeup fixed in place once you’ve finished application.
Those are a some of my MUST HAVE products for bridal makeup!

So here is the makeup I created today. You may have seen the design I created on photoshop yesterday, its very similar. I adapted a couple of bits to suit lighting etc, but overall I think I met the ‘Gothic’ brief!
I used Kryolan supracolor team with Dinair airbrush as the base.
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!

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 :)
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
For those of you who love to have tattoos but would occasionally like to cover them up for a wedding for instance, or a bodybuilding comp, there are plenty of products you can use.
You need a camouflage product such as Vichy Dermablend, Kryolan Supra Colour, and then there’s also Airbrush.
I used my Dinair Airbrush for this. The key once you’ve matched the colour is to then add in any freckles to match the rest of the skin. It makes it look more realistic.
