'In my Kit' Professional make up artist - Eyebrow makeup

Although there are various eyebrow products on the market, I tend to rely on these tried and tested staples;

Kryolan Eyeshadow powder palette £26.50 - 5 colours that suit all hair shades from very light blonde to black
Tweezerman Tweezers, perfect for plucking out any stray hairs £12.50
MUA clear mascara £1.00 for taming those long, straight hairs and keeping the eyebrows in place.

NYX eyebrow pencil in light and medium brown £4.00 each, perfect for gently filling in small gaps in eyebrows




To keep pencils hygienic I sharpen with a Victoria Loves Beauty pencil sharpener £1.99 before using a new piece of the pencil on each client, this means that most pencils last up to 1 year.
Eyebrow shadow has longevity due to powders not going 'off' so to speak, powders sometimes go a bit 'hard' on the surface which can be lightly scratched off.



I use a disposable mascara wand when applying the clear mascara to eyebrows. Victoria Loves Beauty do the best selection of disposable mascara wands for just £4.79 per pack of 25

Total yearly cost on eyebrow products - £54.78

All the above products tend to last me anything from a year up to 3 years for the eyeshadow palettes and I will normally get through approx. 8 packs of disposable mascara wands.

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
