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.

Base:

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.

Behind the Scenes in Paris – My Painted Lady.

I had an amazing weekend working away in France for Luke Woodford’s Abandoned Fashion Series project where I had the chance to work with some amazing designer pieces and hats which were styled perfectly on the day with my Parisian Painted Lady make-up look.

The inspiration for the make-up look I created was based on the concept of a lady who haunts the streets of Paris and was burnt alive in 1940s (All will be revealed when the final images are out) This resulted in me creating a living canvas of a painted lady using just paints and make-up to give a 2D illusion- something I am loving doing at the moment after my Pop Art make-up look, and the response I got from my followers on this look was amazing, especially after people still couldn’t guess if my models eyes were open or close. I can confirm the eyes were painted on over her eyelids. And trust me no make-up in the world can keep these eyes from not smudging so my beautiful model Tess did have to keep her eyes closed most of the time in Paris in the 30 degrees of heat in the street of Paris too! She was such a trooper.

The team behind this shoot also made it extra special on this weekend especially as I was surrounded by likeminded creatives who inspire me to believe in my dreams (Luke Invites along photographers to come and experience the project so they can learn from him) and I also love that the photographers capture the weekend with their fantastic talented photography skills. All the above pictures were took by photographer Peter Alberti, I love every single picture he took. It was so hard for me to pick just 10 pictures for this blog post, however I will upload them all on my Facebook Fan page soon.

I also had two make-up artists who applied to assist me that got to experience this weekend too which were a pleasure to bring them into this project and teaching them some of my skills. I am looking forward to opening it up for more new assistants soon to come to the next one.

Keep a look out for my behind the scene video coming on my YouTube channel soon and of course the final images that will be published in Razor Red Magazine.

DIY False Lashes by Karla Powell

I am DIY person when it comes to making my own hair pieces, wigs, false nails and false lashes! This is because I want something that no one has out there and unique, a bit like a designer making their own clothes. It’s a chance for me to get creative and to shut off from the busy life I have when I make these things and I love to share to my followers how my ideas all develop into the make-up job I have coming up.

My Top Tips When Making My Own Lashes:

*Purchase cheap flexible thin lashes as a base. Or maybe completely make your own?

*Use light accessories to add to the lashes as they can become heavy on the model making their eyes look droopy

*Use light strokes of Spirit Gum to adhere accessories to the false lashes

*Use Eyelash Duo to apply to adhere the lashes on your model

*You’ll need a scapel blade and VERY steady hands, and probably tweezers to get creative

I hope this inspires you all to create your own lashes. I have made these and created my make-up design plan ready for a job in Paris with photographer Luke Woodford next week working with some amazing designers look books. I will be keeping you all updated on this shoot.
