Pop Art Workshop with Karla Powell

After the success of my Pop Art Make-up creation which I created this year which made front cover of Scratch Magazine & me doing a live demonstration of the look at IMATS London my followers called out for me to teach my Pop Art skills at my first ever exclusive workshop (I only had a few selective students on the course to make it more intimate) . After the success of this Pop Art workshop I am excited to teach more workshops all inspired by my make-up portfolio. It’s an opportunity to share all my tips and skills when creating my signature looks and letting my followers into my industry secrets.

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.

My New Make-up & Hair work! Gestural Abstraction (2) Demonstrated at Vanity X, Dublin using Crown-brushes.

I was asked by VanityX to visit their make-up school in Dublin, to give a full make-up demonstration using my Crown-brushes and to let my Irish followers into world of my make-up artistry success story with my full tips in the industry and what products I love to use when creating my make-up looks!

VanityX is one of Irelands TOP Make Up Academy’s, that offer courses designed around the make-up industry with on-going student support, and REAL industry experience! The story behind Debbie Mc Quillan who set up the school a few years was so inspiring and I was so delighted and over whelmed to be asked to visit their school and to meet some of my Irish followers. It will be a day I won’t forget and hope to return there next year.

Above are the Final edited images of the Gestural Abstraction Make-up look I demonstrated to the VanityX students ( I was lucky to have professional images took of my look on the day) ‘Gestural Abstraction’ is where I had the chance to show off the process of making art! Gestural Abstraction means you are demonstrating a variety of techniques that include dripping, dabbing, smearing, and even flinging paint on to the surface of the canvas (My Model Lyn) .

To create these techniques it all depends on actions directed by the artist (Using my Duo Fibre Crown-brushes) using a sense of control interacting with chance or random occurrences better known as Action Painting! Within this look it was all down to movement on how I was feeling, so therefore was not a planned look and isn’t supposed to look symmetrical or a normal day to day make-up look. This was all down to layering and textures using the natural contours of my models features.

Many thanks to model Lynn Kelly from Assets Models and Lee from Absolute Studios for taking these awesome pictures!
