Gorgeous Golden Eyes – Product List

Here’s the list of products Fran used on Jess in our latest video.

Mandy Gold makeup palette from PAM – this is great to have in your make-up kit especially if you work on set as it’s so quick and easy to work with.

Concealer/Lip/Cheek Palette from PAM – another great item to have in your kit as it’s a multi-purpose product.

MAC Signed Sealed eyeshadow – discontinued (sorry!) but Shadowy Lady is similar but not as dark. When you’re working on darker skin tones, you can use darker eyeshadow colours for a natural look.

MAC Tempting eyeshadow. Fran chose this pretty golden toned eyeshadow to add a bit of glamour to Jess’ makeup look. I love this shadow so much as it’s really flattering on any eye colour!

NARS Corcovado Soft Touch Shadow Pencil – Fran used this as a highlighter in the inner corner of her eyes. With darker skin tones you can use more golden shades to highlight rather than silver shades.

Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner – we absolutely love these pencils as they’re so easy to blend and have great pigment to them. This is ‘Khaki’ a shade that suits pretty much all skin tones and eye colours.

Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric 01 – we have never come across a blusher like this! The texture is unique, it feels really silky when you apply on the skin and blends very well. We recommend this to anyone who doesn’t like powder blusher and can’t get on with cream blushers.

Sleek Pumpkin Blusher Palette – Sleek make great products for darker skin tones and the prices are reasonable too! Fran used a little powder blusher over the top of the Armani one just to give a bit more oomf.

Guerlain Shine Automatique 263 – these lipsticks by Guerlain are really moisturising and give a nice amount of colour to the lips. I actually have some of these in my own makeup bag and they don’t dry my lips out like MAC lipsticks do.

So there you have it, I hope you found this useful and as always, if you have any beauty related questions, you can always tweet, facebook or instagram us! L x

Boldly Going… Part Deux

Hi guys,

Here are some shots from the photo shoot the other day with the lovely Jojo Desmond, singer, songwriter and dancer!

First up, we started with our cheesecake, pin-up look. The makeup was kept simple, with a plain vanilla eye, red lips and falsies for a Jane Russell inspired look. The hair was rollered towards the top of the head at the front for the victory rolls and hot sticks were put into the back for a nice retro wave.

Our second look was a ballet dancing ’80s rockstar!’ We decided to go with blue and gold on the eyes, strong pink cheeks and glossy lips. The hair was backcombed for maximum volume, hair sprayed a little and then set free to move!

Our last look was quite experimental 😜 We created a sad, slightly scary clown queen! Jo had some preferential colours so we went with the flow to create something a little bit different. We mostly used Mac pigments and greasepaint to achieve our desired look. Let me know what you think!

F😳💋😬
