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.

For a lot of my creative makeup looks I use products from professional makeup brand, Kryolan.
I purchase their products from Charles Fox in Covent Garden, London. Here are three makeup palettes; Supracolor, Aqua Paints & Body Illusion Paints.
The illusion paints are activated by alcohol - I use IPA when using these.
When using the Supracolor cream palletes, I use a buffing brush to work it into the skin. These are super pigmented and full coverage, so buffing it in is essential for a great flawless finish.
And when using the Aqua Colour paints, I like to add a touch of water & mix them to a thick creamy consistency in order to get a nice coverage & pigment pay-off.

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.
Abschminke by Kryolan is THE BEST makeup remover I have ever used!
There is nothing it can’t tackle when it comes to makeup product removal.
Abschminke is an ointment based remover that you simply swipe it over your makeup, then remove using a cotton pad. In doing so, it takes the makeup it with it in one go!
I always use a water proofing liquid mixed in with my gel liner, and it’s a real pain to remove with regular facial wipes or cleaners. But Abschminke literally lifts it off without any hassle, so no rubbing of your delicate eye area, just a gentle wipe with a soft cotton pad!
This is ideal for my models after I’ve put their skin through its paces when using thick water proof products. No-one wants to go around with red sore skin and patches of smudged waterproof mascara.
It’s not dear for the size you get, so I would recommend it to anyone who wears or uses hard to remove makeup products.
Here is another image from a recent Beauty Shoot.
When creating photos for a site where people will buy the images, your work needs to stand out, but still be relevant at the same time.
For instance with this image we are aiming it at cosmetic companies. It’s based on contouring and creating the perfect face shape. Oval is the ‘ideal’ face shape, all hairstyles suit an oval face. And if you have a shape that is anything but oval, then contouring can help you to create the illusion of an oval shape.
I decided to think outside of the box when creating this image. Instead of swiping the brown & cream on like we see in most cosmetic contouring images, I decided to use a cross-hatch method, which is also a technique we are seeing used backstage by MUAs on catwalk shows.
This is a subtle but effective use of the technique and I think it’s worked really well as a stock beauty image.
Martin filmed me creating this makeup during the photoshoot, so please subscribe to my channel to see the making of this look when it goes up!

2nd image from yesterdays photo-shoot.
After creating a flawless base to Nicole’s skin using Kryolans Micro HD Foundation palette, I then used ‘Woodwinked’ eyeshadow from MAC to enhance her eyes, giving an autumnal feel to the image.
