Karla Powell Make-up Artist

It has been an exciting week preparing for my workshop at Temptu and also going to a number of meetings with potential stockists for my Karla Cosmetics products.

 

I have been truly humbled by the response and the way in which the people in New York have helped, guided and believed in the dream. I cannot thank the people of America enough for their amazing feedback and response to my products.

 

I am so excited to announce my products will be available in New York later this year at Kenig & Alcone, 538 6th Avenue, New York. The owner Ricky Kenig has vast experience in the make up industry, owning 20 + make up shops throughout NYC. You may be familiar with the Rickys stores across New York? Kenig & Alcone is where the pro’s shop in New York.

 

Ricky is a truly inspirational guy and I cannot wait for my products to be available at this amazing store.

 

Since launching Karla Cosmetics there has been huge interest from my American followers and I wanted them to be able to see and hold my products. New York is only one destination but I hope that this is the start of something special and what better place is there to launch than the greatest City in the world!

 

I want to thank you all for this amazing opportunity, without my followers this trip wouldn’t be possible. You have helped my dreams come true. I also want to thank a very special lady, Sasha Badillo whom I have worked with closely to set up my workshop and also helped set up meetings with Ricky.

 

Keep an eye out for a very special competition coming soon.

Serene VS Sonorous Beauty Photo-shoot 

I loved getting creative with this new beauty photo-shoot. It was a chance for me to do something I haven’t done before with my creative direction and design and make my first ever haute couture head piece inspired by the remarkable couture headpiece designer katsuya kamo.

The start of the look is where she appears Serene- beautifully calm, peaceful, and untroubled; tranquil. Focusing mainly on the high hair and keeping the make-up pale and simple with a few flashes of highlights on the cheekbones and the centre of the lips. The look then moves onto her being Sonorous- where she becomes very impressive, prenticious, and overblown with the main focus on the head piece where I had the chance to emphasise its brilliance and startling details. This way I could minimise the make-up look with no attention-grabbing complexity. Simply focusing on the bold lip tones and stunning white and black head pieces.
Which is your favourite look from my new beauty series? I can’t wait to demonstrate this look at IMATS,London with Temptu on Sunday 29th June 2014.

Magnum 25th Birthday 

For all pleasure seekers & those that love Magnums, it’s time to celebrate! Magnum are celebrating their 25th Birthday! 

How will you be celebrating? Will you be indulging in your favourite Magnum Ice-Cream? Or by looking at the images from the Birthday campaign shoot I was fortunate enough to do the make-up for? Either way I am sure you will be visiting your local shop to pick up your favourite Magnum’s very soon! ;)
Classic Chocolate Magnum Ice-Cream provided inspiration for this eye catching contrasting look. Using creamy white & black tones in a classic winged eyeliner look, matte defined skin for soft sculpting, finished perfectly with strong glossy white and dark chocolate lips that look good enough to eat! 
There were many creations inspired by the Classic, Almond and White chocolate Ice-Creams.  So keep your ice cream loving eyes out for more images! During the next few months Magnum and I have been posting on social media, revealing more chocolate inspired creations! There will also be plenty more behind the scenes footage and pictures coming your way! As well as another shoot we did last month to celebrate their silver anniversary ;) 
Which is your favourite Magnum Ice-Cream?

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?
