Yesterday I shot with photographer Christian Hough for Bowens lighting. Here are two behind the scenes mobile shots!
The hair stylist we had on board was the amazing Anne Veck!! She does phenomenal Avant Garde hair creations.
Anne also owns ‘Anne Veck’ hair salons. Our beautiful model was Emelie Stenman.
The stylist was Kristina Ritchie, and she had some really cute outfits that pulled the looks together once I completed the makeup.
And my makeup assistant was Yasmin Lovece!
These images were shot on a relatively dark background so there wasn’t really an option for getting too creative with the makeup as the detail would of just got lost in the darkness. This shoot was mainly about the hair, the makeup was just to compliment it.
I plan on working with Anne in the future on more creative looks, and I’ll be doing some wild makeup to match!
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.

Foundation I used is HD Foundation by Kryolan. I used a dark shade to contour the face, and I used a lighter shade to highlight the face. To add some glow to the face, I mixed in some Kryolan Shimmer Event Foundation. This adds light reflecting qualities to the skin, and photos amazingly.
On the eyes I placed some Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge, up to the socket line and in a winged out swoop. To help keep that in place as its a creamy product, I placed a metallic eyeshadow over the top from Sleek.
To create the Black liner, I used Lime Crimes uniliner in Quill. To gain a steady line, I suggest you use your little finger against the cheek to counter balance yourself. I place this just above the socket line following the swoop of the eyeshadow. And I also placed this along the top lash line, flicking outwards on the outer edge, but not quite meeting the top line.
For the Purple glitter line I used the Purple uniliner from Lime Crime and I followed the Black line but along the top side of it. Once that dried I used Lit Cosmetics glitter glue over the top of the paint & then I pushed Lit Cosmetics glitter in a Purple onto the glue.
I have done a write up on the lips in a previous post last week!
For all you liquorice ‘shoe lace’ lovers, check out this hair piece I created using them! Funky eh?
I secured bun rings to the centre of my models head using bobby-pins, then I fed the liquorice laces from the inside of the bun rings, down the outside making sure to cover the visible areas of the bun rings. I used pre-rolled laces for the front of the hair line, and then I adorned those with little bows I made using the laces. Yummy!!!
Hair & MakeUp I created today for DJ Krystal Roxx!
Krystal is known for her “Bouffant” hair, so I decided to create an alternative version inspired by a rockabilly look that pop artist ‘Pink’ was rocking recently.
And for the makeup, I went for a Black glossy eye & muted lip- bringing the Old-Skool rock into 2013
The top three mobile shots are from when I finished the makeup. And the bottom three after we finished tweaking the hair, ready to shoot!
All about rocking a purple lip!

Here is another lip look I created on a recent shoot, inspired by some other creative images I’ve seen recently!
I used a purple face paint to cover the entire lip surface. Then I mixed in a touch of white face paint with glycerin, and on top of that I placed a small drop of purple eyeliner from LimeCrime, which i swirled around with a tiny brush. And then finally added in was an electric Teal eyeliner from No.7, which was the additional product to top it off!
This is one of the images from the latex & feather shoot I was booked on this week. I did a quick write-up on a mobile image I uploaded from this look a couple of days ago. This makeup is really simple to create as it’s not about being neat or too precise!

Here is a behind the scenes photo of a makeup look I created on model Kate Errington!
I used a variety of vibrant eyeshadow colours from brands such as Sugar Pill, Grimas, No.7 & MAC! It was all about contrasting colours but in a complimentary way. By that I mean using colours such as Yellow against Purple. They contrast due to their colour differences, but are complimentary on the colour wheel. By using colours that are so different, you can create some real eye-catching results, and that’s why I chose to use an electric Blue liquid liner across the eyelid. This liner is by No.7, I do love it but it does stain the skin, so be warned!
