Dr Alex Box

This woman needs no introduction. She is the most inspirational makeup artist and woman. I'd being set for life if i was half the make-up artist she is. She came to my uni this week to do an demonstration it was incredible to watch her work. I learnt so much in the hour watching her it was breathtaking. She was recently awarded an Honorary Doctor of design (so jealous). She was also awarded the 2nd most inspirational woman in the last 100 years by Stylist. What a inspiration!!! This is what was said:

2) Alex Box

Alex Box has been voted the second most inpirational woman over the past 100 years. Alex is a highly creative make-up artist with a flair for the exotic, the extreme, and the flamboyant. She's the Creative Director of cult make-up brand Illamasqua which takes its inspiration from the roaring '20s club scene. Box has worked with fashion heroes such as Nick Knight, Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney, but beyond her stellar credentials, she encourages women to look and bedifferent. One of Alex’s top makeup tips is that there are “no rules” when it comes to makeup, and that “you are your own creation”. Inspiring stuff.
Alex strikes a special cord with many woman, and some of her voters described her as being a “daily inspiration”, “empowering” and that Alex helps women "dare to be different".

I've met her before at the school of make-up at Illamasqua.  I asked her what is her favourite thing to do in makeup and she replied with make mistakes. She is so amazing she inspires me to break the rules and push the boundaries with make-up. She see's the face as a black canvas and that's the same as what I see. Her work is so unique and beautiful. I have her book, by it people you won't be disappointed. She's so down to earth and she makes me a better make-up artist. Because of her i can show the thoughts and feelings that go through my head without words, i can express myself in a whole new way.

if she ever reads this CONGRATULATIONS on everything :D

Illamasqua Rich Liquid Review

I know i'm always blogging about Illamasqua products in particular but you lot can't miss out on this one. I am in love with Illamasqua's rich liquid. I'm particularly in love with the white one and jet black one.

The white one has been my best friend over the last few days. I went out dress as Frankenstein (was so embarrassing Halloween fancy dress ... of course i was the only one who did their make-up everyone else just wore a pair of fangs so i stuck out like a sore thumb, had people shouting out FRANKIE at me all night and people kept messing with the bolts on my neck, and 4 showers later ONLY just got rid of the green HAHAHA but was so worth it.)

Anyway it's great for highlighting and photographs AMAZING!!! I also used the black one for contouring. I applied the base which is a dark green supracolour from screenface (buy that palette ALWAYS comes in handy) and then applied the white and black over the top for contouring and blended with my fingers.
Also did a UV shoot and used skin base on my model but mixed in a bit of white rich liquid so when the model was under the UV lights she looked blue. Also was a great base underneath the lipstick made the colour really come out under the lights.

 Into the Space by Li Stroeh
Mika Does Makeup

Get out you UV paints out.
They're great for festivals and great for a crazy night out clubbing or have a UV party WHY NOT???
They are bang on trend this summer so get prepared people UV is back in a BIG way trust me!!!

Philippe Salomon

This is the amazing work of photographer Philippe Salomon. I don't know who the make-up artist is unfortunately but they're are in credible. I can't decide if the model is the same or if they're all different. At a first look you think different but if you look closer the face shapes, noses and lips are very similar. What do you think?
I do plan to recreate these images so will blog about it when I do and you can compare.

MAC Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Review

Omg I love this product. I've heard so many things about it so i thought i'd try it for myself. It glides on so easily, drys quick and is pretty much smudge proof. It has a matte finish and looks so expensive, it dried almost instantly and if you're a blinker when it comes to applying eyeliner you have no worries, unlike liquid it won't create creases or leave marks where you don't want them. The brush is so fine that it makes it easy to apply a thin or a thick line you can just keep applying till you're happy. It's water proof and even when wet doesn't run or smudge which I loved about it. I had it on for at least 8 hours yesterday and it didn't smudge of fade at all. Unlike a pencil you don't have to keep applying to make it darker, it instantly comes out the colour it's meant to which mean you save product, and you hardly need any to start off with. Make-up artists and lovers I recommend this product, it's quick and easy to use, last ages and the finish is so sexy and stunning.

Make-up for people who don't use make-up

Right, Ladies we have a problem! Too many of you don't use make-up or don't know how to use make-up. So these products are cheap, quick and easy to use.

Lipstick. You all know how to use it a five year old can do it. If you're worried about the colour then go for a light colour. Pinks are great. Red is hit or miss so get someone to help you pick one out, but if you have thin lips stay away it'll make them look thinner. Browns and dark lipsticks are not flattering on older women. People think they are but this is wrong. As you get older the colour of your lips starts to fade so go for pinks to put the colour back in your lips. Natural Collection are great for this. The lipsticks are subtle colours are very flattering.

Mascara. It's easy. Close your eyes and brush the eyelashes down and this coats the lashes then open your eyes and coat the other side of your lashes. Waterproof is always a good idea. People believe the more expensive mascara the better this is a lie, it's the brush. Go for a thick brush.

Blush. Go for a pink, if you go for a light colour then you can keep applying more if you want it darker. Get one with a brush, don't use a sponge. They absorb the colour and waste the product. Just put it on the apples of the cheeks and the cheek bones. Don't brush in a line use circular motions.

Highlighters are great. Collection 2000 do one that's sooooo easy to apply. It's a stick and you just wipe it across your cheek bones and then rub in with your finger tips. It's takes 2 seconds, you don't need a brush just your fingers.

Hypercolour brows
  • A strong clubland look, coloured eyebrows are a bold statement, either matching strongly coloured hair and brows or standout shades of blue, purple, lilac, pink or red

Sugar pastels
  • Sugary pastel shades for both hair and make-up - think macaroon and ice cream for the colour palette, with marshmallow pink, duck egg blue, lemon sorbet, cool lavender and pastel mint green
