'In my Kit' Professional make up artist - Eyeshadows

Eyeshadow is my 'failure' when it comes to makeup shopping!  - If it's pretty, I want to buy it!
Above is a photo of my current eyeshadows that I keep in my make up kit..... and you know what? I NEED MORE! There always seems to be more colours that I just need!

To start with, let me explain that I am a 'mixer' - I always mix my colours to create the shade that I want.  I also LOVE colour! And I love putting colour onto faces, brightening people up.

So, here's a current run down of what products I have in my make up kit;
Kryolan 15 colour eye shadow palette £77.00
I buy this empty palette from Charles H Fox in covent garden, London and then choose which 15 colours I want to put in it.  This palette is ideal for freedom of choice and you can buy individual refills as you use each colour.
I have both the above palettes in my kit, 1 shimmer with a selection of colours and 1 matt neutral colours.
These palettes are £44.15 each
120 colour eyeshadow palette £4.99 from ebay
My favourite palette of all time that I use on anyone and everyone.

Individual eyeshadow colours by Supercover £10 each
I currently have 11 of these lovely eyeshadow's in my kit.  I prefer to choose eyeshadows that have a shimmer in them as they lift the eye.
I also have a fashionista 4 colour palette in my it as it contains a lovely high shimmer white and lovely gold and bronzes in it.

All eyeshadows last quite a few years as they are made from powder and powders do not go off.
Sometimes a powder can get a greasy film on top of them which can easily be scratched off so there is no need to replace them

Total cost on eyeshadows in my kit - £284.29

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
