Here is the makeup I created today at the opening of my ShowMe MakeUp Suite within The Face Painting Shop.
I used a Kryolan Bald Cap on my model, Fran Turners’ head.
I stuck it down using Spirit Gum, taking care not to apply to much on the fine hair around the nape of the neck. I used Superstar paints to cover the cap, body & the head piece; which I made using a Glue Gun. To get a good coverage I used a sponge & a stipple motion. This packs the colour on as opposed to smearing it on with a brush.
On her face I used White Supracolor by Kryolan and I blended it in using a buffing brush. On my models eyes I applied a customised top & bottom set of Kryolan Eyelashes. I painted them with the same superstar paints in Blue & Purple, then I covered them using a fine glitter also by Kryolan. To cover the head & body in glitter, I spray hair spray over the surface and then I used a puffer to dispense the glitter over her.
I’m happy with this alien sea creature!

This is an image that was taken for our models portfolio. She wanted something bright and creative looking - This is the result!
I love this image, it’s very classic looking! If you saw the video I posted up last week of myself doing makeup on a model, then you’ll recognise that this image is from that particular shoot.
As for makeup, I went for a classic dark smokey eye & Red lip! I also drew in a few extra hairs at the front of each of Kirsty’s brows. This gave them a beautiful full look, and it also helps to stop the brows looking blocky at the beginning, which often happens when brows are plucked or threaded into shape.
