How to Apply Foundation

I have made this short video demonstrating how to apply your foundation to get the best and most natural results.
I hope you enjoy!

In this Video I have used supercover cream foundation which is a cream mineral formulation great for HD TV and for close up shots.  The results are extremely natural, giving you a clear canvass to apply the rest of your make up on to.

Please remember, your foundation is not used to cover blemishes or unwanted markings on your face - that is the job of your concealer, your foundation is used to even your skin tone and to give you a clear canvass to add to.

Some people like to make their skin look more tanned or darker than it naturally is - If you apply a foundation that is too dark to achieve this look, your make up will never look natural, and there will always be tell-tale signs around your jaw line, hair line and eyebrows.   You actually need to apply the correct colour foundation and then apply bronzer at the end of your make up to look more tanned or darker.

This also applies if you are wanting to make your skin look lighter - do not apply lighter foundation, just apply a light powder or white (colourless) powder to set your base if you want to look lighter.

1950's hair and make up for secret cinema screening of Grease the musical

Recently I was contacted by two local girls who was going off for a secret cinema screening of Grease the Musical.  They asked if I could do their hair and make up 50's style so that they looked the part! I love doing hair and make up like this as it is so much fun.  I love any make up from the 1920's onwards as woman really knew how to style themselves and how to wear their make up with pride..... that and big red lips!

Art Nude Photo shoot

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form. I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs. It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks; Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold.  Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up. I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan  and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos. The photo above is my favourit
