Sunset hair

15/07/2019

Such a pretty look created by hairstylist @hairchameleon. Reminiscent of a beautiful sunset, this balayage hair goes from red at the roots, to orange in the mid section and yellow at the ends. Maybe only for the more adventurous but visually striking and perfect for a hot summer.

This makeup is perfect for a warm summer's day or evening. The MUA has used either a tinted moisturiser all over the face or just concealer where needed so that the skin shows through. The eyelids have been dusted with a light, golden bronze and a light gold has been added to the inner corners. Bronzer has been placed on...

90's makeup

19/06/2019

This 90's makeup by Sam Chapman is always one of my favourites to recreate as it looks good on everyone. Barely there foundation, soft muted brown eyeshadow with winged eyeliner and false lashes.

Gorgeous pinks

This super pretty makeup is created by MUA Natasha Denona. She has placed sparkly lilac on the lid and under the eye, a deep bold pink in the crease fading out with a soft orange. A delicious looking makeup that reminds of those pretty cakes in a French patisserie.

MUA Karen Darnell has created a beautiful bronze and chocolate smokey eye on the model here. She has used a soft white colour on the waterline, which makes the eyes look bigger, and the touch of golden yellow in the inner corner adds an extra dimension and helps the blue eyes to pop.

This bold winged eyeliner created on supermodel Joan Smalls by Sir John (Beyonce's Makeup Artist) is striking and the burgundy colour smoked underneath the bottom lashes adds dimension and softness. The rest of the makeup is in nude tones so that the focus is all on the eyes.

Julianne Moore

Makeup Artist Hung Vanngo has created a lovely metallic, bronze smokey eye with a soft, natural lip and cheek on Julianne Moore for a red carpet event. Her hairstylist Marcus Francis has pulled back the hair to show off her fabulous bone structure. A really beautiful and classic hair and makeup.

GLOW UP

03/04/2019

I'm really enjoying the BBC's Glow Up: Britain's Next Make-Up Star. All the young Makeup Artist's have so much talent and are coping well under the pressure. They've all had the luxury of 10 years of makeup tutorials on YouTube, something I would have relished when I first started out.

Blue eyeshadow

22/03/2019

This bold, editorial look was created by Makeup Artist itsalexboldea. It's definitely one for the catwalk and not for everyday (unless you're brave) but the blue eyeshadow looks great on the model's brown eyes.
