#LoveTalk Trip for Two Presenter models for me

Yasmin is a fashion blogger and presenter for a Sky show… She has amazing skin, but as you can see from the before and after below, the transformation is great… I evened out her complexion with Airbase Airbrushing Foundation… which I had to mix to suit her olive-light brown skin tone. I then opened her eyes – which are a lovely shape – with darker liner and shadows close to the entire lid, and used silvers and lighter shades over the lid, with the lightest colour on the inside of the eye – this is done to bring out the sparkle in the eyes too.

I love this orange lip colour on Yasmin, and I used a complementing cheek shade to create a look of a higher cheekbone. Scroll done and you can see Yasmin presenting one of her shows… I hope to be working with her again.

Make-up Artist for Marc Dressen

I had a lot of fun with Darren Brade, Vicki Lord and Jordan Martin at Marc Dressen’s shoot… it was at Jump studio using an infinity curve and rooftop space… I didn’t climb the ladder to the roof top though!!!

marcdressenI used Airbase on Marc’s face and neck… the neck area had quite a red shaving rash and needed even coverage, and you can see the comparison from the start of the video with after application. I added other concealer under the eyes, and did some contouring – but Marc has very strong features and great bone structure. I added clear mascara, and finally, lots of lip balm to give a natural supple look. I also, for the record had to airbrush Marc’s torso… all in a day’s work.

From teen to #promqueen…

prom make-upThis lovely lady popped in to have make-up done for her prom… Probably the most important time for a young girl. The idea of a prom is very American, but the teenagers love it, as they can really celebrate the end of exams.

Like any young girl dealing with variations in hormones and skin-quality, my client’s main  concern was that she wanted her skin to be even and flawless… This I knew I could achieve, because Airbase Airbrushing Foundation covers blemishes and redness, and as you can see, she certainly got a beautiful flawless complexion.

Her next wish, was to have her eyes stunning and smokey… I asked her what her dress was like – it was navy blue in colour and this combined with her grey blue eyes gave me the perfect focus for her eye make-up. With her fair hair and skin… the eyes are really able to pop with the midnight blue smokey shadows, and the silver brings out the sparkle. I darkened her eyebrows to suit the strong eyes, and added some well-needed prom glamour with false lashes. With eye make-up like this, neutral pink lips are best with subtle blusher… Stunning!

Why do #brides love #airbrush #makeup?

Back in 2010, I completed an Airbase Airbrushing Foundation course, and if you have seen my Services page or what my salon Pinkies offers, you’ll see that I specialise in the application of this foundation technique.

This is a perfect foundation to build a makeup look on for bridal due to its silicone base. This silicone gives a flawless, long lasting, smooth and natural look that doesn’t need any touch-ups throughout the day. So as I already wrote – perfect for a bride! Brides want to look flawless right? And you can perspire with nerves or excitement, or get a sweat on under the lights or heat of the sun, especially in a dress and veil… so you need a base to your makeup, whether you are going natural or glam, that will maintain a fresh finish… and this really does!

Here is the science bit ;o) …

In use, an airbrush atomises the product (in this case Airbase Foundation) making the particles of makeup tiny. This is the reason why airbrush makeup is used in HD TV and film… And this is a revolution as HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection – but Airbase will hide every imperfection including blemishes, birthmarks and tattoos…. So brides can truly feel like superstars on their wedding day with the knowledge that they will look flawless in their photos and on home video even in high definition!
