There’s only a couple of weeks left to get busy entering the Illamasqua Distinction Makeup Artistry Awards! There are lots of different entry categories to this competition which is great as anyone can enter. Plus there are a bevy of prizes to be won. Whoop!
Having only retrained as a hair and makeup artist a year and half ago, it’s been a real opportunity for me to try think differently and get creative. I’ve been seeking out inspiration from anywhere and everywhere and have been collecting images on our Pinterest. I’ve also been trying out my ideas on all my friends to see what textures and colours work. Believe me, the ideas you have in your head don’t always work when applied to face! There have certainly been some ghastly attempts so far. What I’ve learnt though, is that it’s all about trial and error. Like sampling a new face cream or wearing a new colour of eyeshadow. How do you know until you try? It’s supposed to be fun, so get involved!
