'In my Kit' Professional make up artist - Concealers

When reaching for a concealer, there is only one product that I use - Dermacolor.  These bad boys have so much pigment in them that I can cover a tattoo with them, therefore dark eyes are no problem against dermacolor concealer palettes.

I was first introduced to dermacolor when I worked at Charles H Fox in London - they sell the dermacolor range which was introduced to the market as a cosmetic camouflage cream.  I was so interested by this that I enrolled myself straight away onto a course with the British Association of Skin Camouflage.

Not only was I introduced to dermacolor, but various different ranges of camouflage creams that are all used for the same purpose - to cover up birth marks, port wine stains, psoriasis, burns, rosacea and much, much more.

In my kit I keep 2 mini palettes of 16 colours each in both light and medium £19.25 each
I tend to find that the colour range offered in these palettes will match with most skin colours.

I also have the large concealer tester palette at home £79.00 so that I can match up concealers with all skin tones as well as being able to offer cosmetic skin camouflaging colour matches.

I use this concealer on all clients for both concealing unwanted marks and to cover up dark circles around the eye area.

Total cost on Concealers - £114.50

These concealers do have a long life line and one mini palette will normally last me up to 18 months.

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
