Long Lasting, Shine Free and Mattifying. The NEW Matte Veil from Illamasqua!
A while back now Illamasqua launched Hydra Veil which was a huge success in the beauty blogging world and is always a huge hit with my models before I apply Illamasqua Skin base! Hydra Veil in a clear gel which is designed to work with dryer skin improving the skins hydration levels creating a smoother surface which helps apply foundation evenly over the skin. Overall it enhances the long-wear of make-up for an all day look.  
I have been waiting for Illamasqua to create an alternative Veil for combination skin like mine, So I am very excited to reveal on the 8th May 2014 the NEW Matte Veil will go on sale at £30 (30ml pot *See above pictures) on www.illamasqua.com 
The new Matte Veil comes in the same pot as Hydra Veil with a hygienic spatula provided to decant the product needed for each application. The secret product is Butyelene Gycol which dissolves the skins overactive oil levels whilst drawing and retaining moisturise and the Sodium Hyaluronate which keeps the skin feeling healthy and balanced resulting in a primed matte finish to the skin ready for make-up application. This beauty will control any shine you might have throughout the day or on a photo-shoot. Perfect for us make-up artists instead of getting that translucent powder out for touch ups! However I would slightly finish the foundation of with fine loose powder in the T-zone area for that extra Matte finish. 

I can’t wait to use it this week on my next make-up job.
Will you be purchasing Matte Veil?

Limited Edition Kiko Cosmetics Collection- Boulevard Rock 

This KIKO collection is limited edition and out in stores now! As soon as the post man delivered this collection I fell in love.  The collection contains some new products as well as some new shades of products which have been released before. It also contains the Skin Glow – The face moisturiser which was in one of their previous collections I keep packing into my make-up kit at my make-up jobs.

I think KIKO Cosmetics is my new make-up obsession. The packaging is to die for, the quality of the products impress me every time I use them and finally KIKO is affordable to keep treating myself every time a new collection is available. 

Have you tried KIKO Cosmetics before?

The Little Mermaid Inspired Make-up & Hair for Rochelle Humes Disney Themed Birthday Party

The Saturdays stunner Rochelle Humes threw her ‘Disney’ themed birthday bash on Saturday 30th March 2014. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to design a fun, creative make-up and hair look inspired by The Little Mermaid on Georgina Dorsett (Rochelle’s best friends) for the party. I had complete creative control when working on Georgina which resulted in me using lots of glitter, gems and sequins! 

Many thanks to Annabelles Wigs who provided me with one of their stunning red wigs.

'Some Girls Are Just Born With Glitter In Their Veins'

I had so much fun teaching Glitter make-up skills & techniques at The School of Make-up based in Manchester, the school I will be teaching at over the next year.

Givenchy models brought a whole new meaning to radiant skin at Paris Fashion Week this year with their faces covered in Swarovski crystals & sequins! Created by my favourite make-up artist Pat McGrath.
(Apparently it took over 40 pairs of hands and 12 hours to create the design!)

I was so inspired by Pat McGrath design I took elements of the Givenchy look and re created my own glitter version with a galaxy optical illusion effect. I wanted it to look like the models skin was taken away and replaced with glitter. The SOM students & myself had so much fun with all that glitter, I am not too sure the model enjoyed washing all that glitter off at the end of the day though!

Keep a look out for more glitter creations I will be creating this year…
