Make up tips to make your eyes appear bigger, wider, brighter and more almond shape

The above video is a demonstration of tips and tricks of how to make your eyes appear bigger, wider, brighter and more almond shape.

When we look at the face there are certain measurements to take account of.  These measurements are based on 'the perfect oval face shape' and using this it will help us to understand the differences that we need to make to our faces to create an illusion to others.

In the case of the eyes - if you measure how wide your eye is using your thumb and forefinger, this should be the same distance that you have between your eyes (above the nose) and either side of your eye (towards your hair line);
Now that you have checked your measurement, you should have learned if your eyes are wider apart or closer together - now apply make up to create the illusion that they are in the 'perfect place'

If you want to give the illusion that your eyes are further apart, always keep your eyeshadow colour lighter on the inside (closer to your nose) and create a darker look on the outside (near hairline)
Alternatively if you want to give the illusion to bring your eyes closer together, use a darker colour on the inside - also make your eyebrows a bit longer towards the beginning of them (above the nose)

If your eyes don't have much of an eyelid, create a new eye socket by looking directly into a mirror and placing the eyeshadow on your eye where the skin falls with it open - use this as a guideline of where to create your socket.

If your eyes close towards the outer corner and you want to separate them making them more oval shaped, simply place a whit dot on the outer corner between where your eyelashes grow out from.

If you want to brighten your whole eye areas, take a concealer pencil and line your eyes on the inner skin both above an below your lashes.

Always finish with plenty of mascara to open up your eyes and remember, if you want your lashes to look thicker apply eyeliner above and below your lashes to crate this illusion.

Happy make up experimenting!

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
