Glitter n All things shiny


Im a bit of a magpie..loving all that sparkles!. So Glitter is an occassional hazard but a good thing in the right places and the right doses!

The first thing with glitter is that it really is hard to get off! So think carefully before you embark on all things glittery!
Top tip to remove....plasters. Olive oil is great too so that you can slide off the glitter and nourish the skin in the same sweep.

If you like the effect of subtle 'selfish fairylights' along the root of your lashes you can't beat Jemma Kidd Make Up School Topaz glitter liner. Its a gorgeous taupe truffle shade with multicoloured micro sparkles. Grown up glitter. Done and sparkled.

Silver screen mascara[3 shades] by JK at Asos.com has a handy screw thread wand to allow you to slide the lash through the glitter and the fine tip brush on the end of the same wand allows you to create a sweep along lashline. Multipurpose tool. Lovin' it. Investigate this one as the wand/brush combo is quite special.

Being artistic and you want to create your own glitter liner? MAC Pro Mixing medium Liner from the PRO stores allows you to paint a thin line and press loose glitter along the wet edge you create. Gorgeous. Ben Nye Black glitter along a black liner is quite the jet jewel edge for instant retro glamour.

Get sparkling.

Impressively Inglot @ Westfield Shopping Centre


Well I have done this make up game now for 20 years,so for me to get excited about a make-up brand is rare but today I was excited again about make up! Read on!

Today I went to review a relatively new UK brand 'Inglot' on the ground floor at Westfield Shopping Centre, London.[Wood Lane Tube station on the Hammersmith & City Line]. Recently many of my students had been experimenting with the brand so I went to explore.

Clearly the MAC comparisons are overt, tipping off the counters and visible but I would place the brand at a fusion of Make up Forerver, Sephora and MAC. It reminds me heavily of when MAC arived into the UK and no-one knew the name or the vision. So do we really need another one? Well yes for students who need to spend so much money on kits and building the security and confidence with colour.

This brand offers an AMAZING price point and student discount and professional discount intiatives will follow. I was truly impressed how much my money could buy here, and as an academic educator that is highly placed in my recommendation perspective. If this credit crunch climate has made this a harder than ever time to be a freelance make up artist then now is the time to shop smart. You can compromise fancy marketing brands and infamous brand names with creativity as long as the payoff delivers. This pigment level does!

The first impression is aesthetic, hygienic and impressive. Aesthetic and vibrant to the eye with a plethora of hues to excite the artistic palette. The palette I assembled was fun, innovative and I must say that both the make up artist friend with me and I found the pigment payoff of the shadows astounding and can clearly compete alongside MAC and Illamasqua confidently.

Genius was the fact that I could pick my shadows in a bespoke fashion and arrange them on a magnet palette before final confirmation of my purchase. My 10 pc palette was just £35.00 and the pigment payoff is amazing. I also picked up another bespoke 8 colour 'Freedom System palette' on offer at £18.00 which I love.

I would also say that though most of the staff clearly have english as a second language, thus give them a chance, my helper was great, clearly trying to work with me and suggested ideas and colours well. I had fun selecting my hues from an amazing choice. It was refreshing to look outside of the overt MAC box for colour once again. Now I like many of you truly love MAC but this brand is a firm keeper too!

I particularly loved the shadow palettes, matte lipstick pencil shades and gel liners.

In store ambience though is one aspect this brand has yet to perfect & master - but we will forgive that because that is built and learned and the products are great and the manageress was highly amiable and open to constructive viewpoint on how the shop can improve and serve the community of make up fans and students.

Let us also not forget that MAC Service is not consistently what it used to be in store, they get it wrong too on occassion.

If you haven't found this gem of a brand pop down and get discovering their amazing shadows. You. like I will be hooked my friend! Make up artists sign up for their discount card, make sure you take at least two credits/ professional ID to apply. :)

Working at speed proficiency on set


Recently on a big commercial beauty shoot I pondered how time for professional make up artists has diminished over the years on set as technologies and reliance on post production has overtaken professional skills. Progression of technology now versus artistry? Hours became minutes.
As production companies continue to cut the amount of time make up artists get to deliver their looks, it is vital that the next generation of training artists get to understand the value to working at speed with proficiency.

I am now traning my students to work to strict deadlines and time deliveries so that on set they are able to beat he clock and still deliver high technical standards. This is a vital development in professional make up artistry education.

Lashings of Mascara

OK so I don't know anyone who has found the ultimate mascara...but if you have let me know and for now Im liking Max Factor False Lash Effect.

TYPES OF MASCARA FORMULATIONS


Volumising: Builds the lashes to make them look fuller and thicker. In most cases the brush has dense bristles ensuring each individual eyelash is coated from root to tip.

Lasting Tint: Ultra lightweight, water-resistant lash colour that resists smudge or flake for up to 24 hours.

Lengthening: Extends the lashes making them look longer. Lengthening mascaras contain plastic polymers that cling just to the tips of the lashes to exaggerate the lash length.

Curling: Lifts and curls the lashes, making the eyes look more ‘wide-awake’. The brush may have multi-level bristles that helps create curlier looking lashes. The lash formula may set to ‘tighten’ the lash inducing a curl effect.

Defining: Separates the lashes giving them more definition. The effect to the lashes is more natural and subtle. Usually a stiffer brush or a comb with wide spaced bristles create definition and ensure separation of the lashes.

Glossy: Lifts, lengthens, and separates lashes. Lashes stay silky, pliant, clump free and flake free through multiple coats. Mascara applied evenly, ash root to tip.

Sensitive: Suitable for contact lens wearers or those with highly sensitive eyes. Formulated to be specifically non-irritating and may state Ophthalmologist approved or tested.

Waterproof: Formulated not to run in water, so ideal for water activities and bridal. Requires an oil based remover to ease removal of application.

High Definition: 2 in 1 style wand. Brush contains bristles and comb. Brush-side coats with dramatic, long-wearing colour. Comb-side separates to perfection. Transforms each and every lash with extreme length and definition.

Lash build Primer: Thickens and lengthens lashes. Conditions to make lashes stronger. Fortifies to extend mascara wear.

Clear: Transparent to set lash without colour. Can impart a glossy shine effect.

Hug a toad!

Septembers looking busy busy busy

Well its looking like September is going to be hectic as ever. Im teaching a 3 day Introduction to Glamour Make up, a 1 Week Basic course, a 3 day Bridal course as well as fitting in my birthday and London Fashion Week! Now I am a big advocate for experiencing all genres of make up artistry and as such I have invited the make up artists of ITN Newsroom who are fantastic to join me backstage at London Fashion Week. They are great make up artists in their own right but they have this sense that they have 'missed the boat' to try fashion. Well PAH! they will be backstage with me and we are going to have a blast! They are going to get their chance to do Fa[r]shion! I bet the News looks far more interesting when they have done the show! lol. Keep you posted. Always one to be organised, the make up has been designed, approved and fitting will be early september. Ok so I better enjoy the rest before the storm so to speak! Oh and on top of that a special visitor from the US is landing on our shores for a while. Its going to be a crazy month. All good. Bring it on!

Intelligent eyelining - make it simple and effective


The issue of water resistant Gel liner formulas.
Well firstly lets discuss some Pros and Cons:

Pro
[1] Dries so fast minimises smudges
[2] Water resistant finish and will last without smudges
[3] Will last through the day to evening with no retouch required
[4] Will not crack and flake like liquids tend to

Con
[1] Dries quickly into the brush restricting line artistry
[2] If you do not return the cap the product will dry out
[3] Difficult to remove mistakes without effort.
[4] Not flattering on mature eyes

So what are we trying to achieve with an eyeliner? Really the core purpose is to define the lid, yet often if the line is poorly executed the line is distractive at best and poorly applied at worst. So how about a technique to technically define the eye perfectly every time?

Often when I'm teaching eyelining skills, students get so frustrated when they cannot achieve the perfect symmetrical line. [Well of course it doesn't help that the educator can do it and make it look effortless because they have years of experience on their side.] Its just a case of correct brush and a steady hand teamed up with practice.Well trust me even the most experienced of us can stil have bad liner days. Usually at the blame of coffee and caffeine wobbles ;). Generally a more stable brush is easier to control with a more firm synthetic bristle but experiment with different shapes until one seems controllable.MAC#263 or #266 seem the favourites amongst attendees at the school.

*Great trick*

A great way to define the upper eye line and enhance the lashes for a photographic finish [+ if you are not confident in your upper liner technique] is to apply the water resistant liner under the upper lashes. Makes lashes look fuller. It will dry and not transfer into the lower eyeline. [I would advise doing this and letting it dry before contact lense insertion for those of you who wear lenses]

[1] Look upward to position the upper lashes in the correct position
[2] Position your brush + gel liner under the lash and at the start of your natural lash growth
[3] Work from inner corner to outer edge under the upper lash along the lid edge
[4] Actually print the gel liner up onto the inner rim of the upper lid using a small detail brush such as a Jemma Kidd pro #1 or #2 or a MAC#263
[5] Repeat and strengthen colour for impact
[6] Black will be most dramatic but softer shades also are effective

Bobbi Brown was the original gel liner and is still one of my favourites although the MAC Fluidline is also good. Depends which specific shades you are looking for.
Black Mauve Shimmer Long wear gel liner by Bobbi Brown is my favourite a great universal shade that defines without overpowering the eye or make up. Really a great alternative to classical grey, black and brown.

A little less assuming yet cleverly defining. The definitive edge.

Give it a try!

Sensimacy


Sensimacy. Sensuality + Intimacy. The intimation of a moment where your surroundings embrace your senses. An intimate, selfless indulgence. Embrace the art of the fragrant.

Once I chased an elusive scent. The scent of the last raindrop that was formed and crafted of natures temperemental outburst that falls from the skies. Curious. Odd. Unexpected. I am a lover of the scent of rain. Rain is my sensimacy.

I also once had a conversation with a remarkable visionary Frank Toskan [CoFounder of MAC Cosmetics] and he told me he was chasing a scent,, a scent of electricity. This caught my imagination immediately. How would electricity smell. Mixtures of earth and elemental fragments. An electrical storm dangerous between current and water. That is the scent in a MAC Product that they still make today. Go find it.

Make up Techniques: Eye Openers


To make the eyes appear larger there are several techinques you can employ:

[1] Line the inside waterline with a flesh coloured eyeliner such as Jemma Kidd I Perfector which will eradicate the inner pinkness to the waterline and create a more open effect. Painterly MAC Paintpot also works brilliantly but this placement is not the true purpose of the product,however that never stops a make-up artist if the effect is warranted.
[2] Line the inside waterline with a white coloured eyeliner such as MAC Fascinating Kohl which will be more dramatic but cheat the illusion that the white of the eye is 1mm larger from a distance. Shu Uemura has a great double ended pencil which is matte white and on the other end metallic white.

[3] Line the inside waterline with an icy pastel powder blue coloured eyeliner which will be cool in tone but cheat the illusion that the white of the eye is crisper and blue/white less discoloured or yellowish from a distance. Just before you reach the end of the inside waterline [towards the outer edge] break the line with a dash of white. This will create a more open effect as it results in a liner 'gap'

[4] Curl Lashes and define the eye with a top lid eyeliner but make the line slightly fuller towards the centre of the eye,resulting in a rounder eye effect.

[5] Rememeber pale, satin, metallic and glosses on the eyelid 'pull' the eye forward optically so this will also enhance the desired effect.

[6] Apply a false lash section insert to the outer 1/3 of the eye to lift and open the expression of the eye.

Paul Poiret moments


In 1910 Sergei Diaghilev's Russian ballet became hugely influential in fashion. Influenced by the styles of the ballet, Paul Poiret created designs based on the ballet costumes and these took London by storm. This had a definite influence on make-up and clothes. Tattooing became especially popular among society ladies and many a society hostess had lips, pink blushes and dark eyebrows permanently needled in.

Paul Poiret (20 April 1879, Paris, France - 30 April 1944, Paris) was a French fashion designer. His contributions to twentieth-century fashion have been likened to Picasso's contributions to twentieth-century art.
