Professional Behind the Scene Pictures at the Gold Water Photoshoot Part of Luke Woodford’s Abandoned Fashion Series.

To continue Luke Woodford’s Abandoned fashion Series I created this Gold Water inspired body painting, make-up and hair look which the inspiration originally came from some gold nails I made that didn’t get used on a previous shoot, it inspired me and Luke to get creative with this look and it turned exactly how I dreamt it! We also released one of the final edited images last night >here< 

Luke found an abandoned beautiful lake in a woods and we went along painted it gold and threw a model in it to create some serious beautiful images! (We didn’t literally throw it but sounds more dramatic like this he he) She was such a trooper considering how deep the lake was an not to mention how much it smelt! 

Keep an eye out for all the images to be released. Once they are all out I will blog about the products I used.

Make-up I did for Luke Woodford’s Abandoned Fashion Series Project in The Lake District- ‘Textured High Fashion’…

To continue Luke Woodford’s series in Lake District the abandoned building Luke took pictures in had beautiful old walls with lots of texture,moss, and peelings from old wallpaper. With the story in mind from Luke’s concept (which will be revealed once the images have been published) I created this high fashion textured look taking in the inspiration of the location and the story. As you can see from my design plan  to reality of me creating the look I would have to say this is one of my favourite make-up looks I have ever created, it was so fun to play with different textures in the hair, skin and detailed designs on the eyes. 

Key products I used to create the look:

*Illamasqua Skin Base

*Crownbrush Eyebrow Palette

*Golden Rose Liquid Style Liner in Black & Black & Style Liner Metallic in Shade 6

*Lime Crime Uniliner in Quill 

*We Are Faux lashes in Style Josey

*Ben Nye Essential Eyeshadow Palette

*Benefit They’re Real Mascara

*Kryolan Perfect Body Foundation Shade 00

*Kryolan Shimmering Vision Palette 

*Kryolan Eyebrow Blocking- Spirit Gum, Cine Wax 

*Daniel Sandler Invisible Veil Powder 

*Concrete Minerals in Shades Napalm, Ember, Sabotage

Keep a look out for the final images in Dark Beauty Magazine in June.

NEW Behind the scene video of me creating my Pop Art Inspired Make-up Look Step-by-Step!

Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and all American pop artists who exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City in the 60s. All which became leading figures in the new art movement gave me inspiration to create a Pop Art make-up look particularly being inspired by Roy’s famous looks with the telephone with an old-fashioned comic strip edge. Every time I look at Pop Art images since I came familiar with this art I imagined how I could paint that on an actual persons face, this vision remained in my head for a long time and it’s been an amazing journey to finally re-create Roy Lichtenstein’s famous looks with make-up hair and body painting with an amazing creative team who believed in my vision and made this possible. Hope it all inspires you all. I am excited to be able to capture and share this experience with you on video. Enjoy!

 Is it a drawing or is it make-up? That is the question I want people to ask when they see my Pop Art Inspired Make-up Series… I wanted to create an illusion!


After my amazing response for posting my first Pop Art look here is my second Pop Art Inspired Make-up Image from my &#8216;Pop Art Inspired Series&#8217;, I love this one as you can see the body painting that was created my Deborah Love on the neck and chest from Follies Face. There are more edited images from this series to come! I can’t wait to demo this at IMATS London on The Crownbrush stand.

Why I Love Diamond DX Paints…
 Diamond FX Face Paint is based in the Netherlands, and they are famous for their line of colours and ideal consistency for layering and blending when applying the paints for body/face painting looks as well as eye work and lip work which I have discovered when experimenting with them that’s why I fell in love with their range.
 For those that work with face paints The Diamond FX Face Paint range they have normal colours to metallic colours that are very opaque and shimmery, great for line work! If you haven’t tried their rainbow cakes before, Diamond FX has a great selection of small and large cakes to add beautiful blended colours and speed with every brush stroke.
 Diamond FX Neon Face &amp; Body Paints will have your makeup designs looking like a work of art! The range of fluorescent colours come alive under nightclub UV lights due to the pigmentation being so strong! So if you are after a pink this bright (This is Shade: Pink from www.dauphines.co.uk ) I recommend purchasing! They simply activate by adding water… You need to get the consistency right for flawless application so make sure you practice and use synthetic brushes to apply to the skin.
 Diamond FX paints can be purchased in the UK from www.dauphines.co.uk or www.thefacepaintingshop.com

A sneaky behind the scenes picture from my Pop Art Inspired photoshoot&#8230;

With the lead up to Yesterday&#8217;s Pop Art inspired photoshoot which I will be demoing at Paintopia and IMATS I posted an image of a Pop Art inspired make-up look where I practiced on myself, something I always do before any make-up jobs. I can&#8217;t believe the response I got on the image, and to get over 500 likes I was overwhelmed. So here is a sneaky behind the scene image of the total look created at the shoot! 
I can&#8217;t wait for you all to see the final images!
