*Kryolan Shimmering Vision Interferenz Palette*
I have had this palette for a while now but I haven’t had the chance to sit down and have a play with it.
It’s a cream based make-up that is aimed for use as an eyeshadow, but they’re safe for use on the body as well.
They are all shimmery and the pigment is pretty good. They take a couple of swipes for a good opacity but taking into consideration that they are cream - its pretty good.
This palette is the only colour combination it comes in, but it covers all the necessary colour groups.
You have the top row which are the cool toned colours; White, Silver, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Purple and Gun Metal Charcoal.
The middle row are the warm toned colours; Yellow, Gold, Bronze, Copper, Bright Orange and Brown.
And then the last row contains colours including; Light Rose Pink, Red, Blush Pink, Light Purple, Teal and then Green.
I’ve tested these colours on the eyelids on their own and they look beautiful, BUT we mustn’t forget that these are cream and this means they do crease when worn alone.
When worn with an eyeshadow over the top they do grip to the skin a little better, but again, once the skin warms the product they will crease in the socket.
I’ve found over the years that less is more, and that if you apply the product to the lower part of the eyelid and drag the excess upwards (and do-not apply it close to the socket-line) then it wears better.
My favourite cream eyeshadows are Maybelline 24HR Tattoo Eyeshadows - these stick to the eye without creasing and the pigment pay-off is immense!
But the shimmer and glow of these Kryolan ones are hard to beat, it’s just a shame they aren’t durable like the Maybelline ones.
Overall all, I do like this palette and LOVE the colours!!! I would recommend it to makeup artists for photo shoots as you can keep an eye on the product and do touch-ups as necessary. AND it would be a fab product to place on the face & body in other areas, such as the cheekbones for avant garde looks!
But I don’t think this palette is suited as an eyeshadow as its too creamy to stay in place. Follow me: www.facebook.com/showmemakeup www.youtube.com/smiles2310

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.
For more info on these products please check out www.charlesfox.co.uk
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.

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.
