Futuristic Make Up Inspiration

I was asked to hold a couple of workshops at Brighton College to inspire their hair dressing students to create hair and make up for their end of year hair show.

It is not possible to teach over 50 students how to apply make up in only 2 hours so I sat and demonstrated a few different techniques that would hopefully inspire them.

I also had only 1 student to demonstrate 2 looks on so that I could show as many different techniques as possible:

Soaped out eyebrows, custom made eyelashes with sequins on them, glitter eyebrows, textured greasepaint make up - glitter lips

Soaped out eye brows - draw new eyebrows on. Lots of highlighting and shading - silver lines, glitter dots

Sequin eyebrows, custom made eyelashes, colourful splodges with glitter on them, glitter outline to lips

Black and silver face - lots of shading and highlighting, glitter streaks, custom made eyelashes, bling

If you look back at make up throughout the ages - it is normally the eyebrows and lips that create a make up look, so on all the above looks, I have soaped out the eyebrows - I will be doing a youtube demo soon to show you how to do this technique so check back to my channel from time to time to check if I have uploaded this for you.

Turns out that I think the future might be 'bling' !

Quite frankly Futuristic make up means different things to different people and it is up to you how far you take this and how far into the future you look.

Good luck to all the hair students for your hair show coming up in 2 weeks

Egyptian Photo shoot with Faith Obae

PLEASE NOTE - THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY Leading on from the art nude photo shoot with Photographer Richard Maxim, one of the required looks was based on an Egyptian theme. Richard asked if we could aim towards a traditional Egyptian look, based on stonework; I love the finished photos :-) We then gave it more of a fashion look             Finishing off with  a more creative Egyptian look; Hair and make up - Amy Prifti Model - Faith Obae Photographer - Richard Maxim Stylist - Falcieri Designs

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! Here, with the girls permission are the before and after shots of them.

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
