Blizzard Disco Make-up Creation Demonstrated at Illamasqua Beak Street Store

After winning the Illamasqua Distinction in Make-up Artistry Awards I was kindly asked by Illamasqua to do a live make-up demonstration in their Beak Street store window Thursday evening using their new 'Envy' Christmas Collection 2013, where my followers and shoppers had the chance to watch me at work using the new products.

After experimenting with their new collection and being inspired by their Blizzard Nail varnish (Full of beautiful subtle sequins) I designed and created this above look, naming it- Blizzard Disco! A twist of Christmas with a hint of glitz and glamour you would see at a Christmas which I brought into the hair, forehead and adding a violet shimmer glitter body paint look to the neck and chest area for that extra shimmering wow factor.

To create the Face make-up look I mainly used the NEW Fatale Eye shadow palette which has four very unique but complimentary shades. They can be worn individually, as well as together on eyes, cheeks and lips.  The eye shadows are extremely soft without any fallout so therefore are multi use.Finally to add Sculpt to my models features the NEW Sculpting Powder Duo set was used. It contains neutral matt Heliopolis for razor-sharp definition, and shimmering champagne Lumos to highlight and illuminate.

Blizzard Disco. Playing with makeup ready for my Live Illamasqua Demonstration.

After winning the Illamasqua Distinction In Make-Up Artistry Awards, Illamasqua kindly asked me & other winners to do a live makeup demo with their new Christmas 2013 collection at their Beak Street store in their window whilst the Grazia Carnaby street event happens!

After experimenting with the new makeup collection and designing my look on my Karla Chart I found myself being inspired by the New Blizzard nail varnish which has subtle sequins that catch the light softly just like snow does in the winter. Finally I wanted an element of glam and glitz and this came from a Christmas Disco, so the mosaic mirrors on the makeup design worked so well with this look I was trying to achieve.

I can’t wait to show you all the final images of my look at the event. A full list of products will be shared too to get the look! And… I filmed my first ever tutorial of this look on my new Canon Camera which will edited soon, so you too can create this look before Christmas!

Behind The Scenes Creating Glossy 1920s Make-up

Having the chance to work in Lille, France for photographer Luke Woodford’s Abandoned Fashion series project once again with an amazing creative team was such a pleasure and ever so inspiring for me.  I also love the fact that I had the chance once again to bring along make-up assistants to experience the project too and learn from me and the team involved.

One thing I was asked about this look was ‘How do you get glossy Eyes & What products do you use?’ Using the MAC Cosmetics gloss creme brillance as clear gloss—on eyelids, placed on top of NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Pencil in shade Bronze.Place it directly in the middle of the lid, and blend it up to the crease, staying away from the corners. Prep the under-eye with Illamasqua Skin Base Lift concealer to keep the gloss from migrating.

Back to Roots Winning Illamasqua Make-up & Hair Look(Edited & Un-seen picture)

I finally got hold of some more pictures of my Illamasqua Distinction in Make-up Artistry Awards pictures took on the day of the competition. High Def Retouching kindly retouched them for me so I can place them in my professional portfolio and to have the images printed to put on canvases. Yesterday I also did a photoshoot with Luke Woodford where I re-created the look but this time in some woods with dress designer Joanne Fleming. This means I can now have a full editorial of studio shots and location shots to be published in a magazine. I am so excited. Pictures will be released around Halloween time.
