Kevyn Aucoin Makeover...

I love it when we approach a new season! 
New clothing and accessory collections are to be seen in the shop windows guiding us on the new styles and colours to be worn. Also it's the beauty worlds time to showcase there new and exciting ranges of products and colours to follow on with the new seasons collections.

Kevyn Aucoin are just one of many who have launched new palettes of colours for there Fall/Winter Collection. New duo eyeshadows and lipstick shades. There new 'The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation' is a light weight fluid foundation that has great coverage.

Inspired by the new season and the legendary Kevyn Aucoins gorgeous new products I couldn't wait to try out. With a friend ready at hand to be my canvas I couldn't wait to get started...

Below is the look I created. This seasons trend is following with the eyeliner flick pairing up with either a nude lip or deliciously dark statement lip. I used Kevyns Blood Roses lipstick. Would look equally great with one of Kevyns Nude lipsticks with his Medium lip liner

Bedford Film Festival 2014

Last Friday was the start of Bedfords Film Festivals second year. It was running throughout the weekend.
It kicked of with a day packed full of workshops. My workshop was a talk informing young students embarking on a two year makeup course at Bedford college about 'my experiences as a Makeup Artist working in the various fields of the industry'

I was a tad nervous if I'm honest as I've not done a great deal of public speaking,never mind having to talk for a Whole Big Whopping hour. However I was lucky to have my friend Eddie who coached me and gave me tips on how to structure my talk.

Once I got my introduction out of the way I relaxed and enjoyed talking to the lovely bunch of students about my experiences which I hope I gave them a valuable insite to what life is like as a freelance Mua. I would certainly give it another go as I actually ended running over my time!

There were some amazing workshops on giving students a real feel into the work that takes place in the production of a film.

Here is a pic of me just before I started my presentation.

Here I am again talking about the visual importance and impact makeup has on the catwalk and film
Referencing Dolce and Gabanna's S/S15 Collection.

Dolce and Gabbana S/S 15 Runway Collection at Milan Fashion Week....

I have to say I am absolutely loving The Dolce And Gabbana 'Spanish Inspired Collection' for S/S 15 at Milans Fashion Week,Infact the whole look is just Wow on the runway. The sleek, smooth,stylish yet simple hair style of a middle parting with there tight low buns.

With Dolce and Gabbana's S/S 15 Collection being heavily inspired by the Spanish influence on Sicily. The makeup too has this influence. Makeup maestro Pat McGrath gave the models a Delicious deep dark plum lip pairing with natural almost nude eyes with a classic cat eye flick. With statement brows. Perfecto!
