Oh my, I am so awful with blog posts it's ridiculous!! So this is the first one of the new year, and I've been so busy I finally have a day off to sit down and show you some stuff I have been doing!
In between studio's I have been doing wedding make ups, make up lessons, you name it I've been doing it.
So this is a little preview of something I did last Friday. We had beautiful Abbie who is 17 as our model for the afternoon and I put so much different make up on her she won't need to wear any now until she is at least 20!
To start with we kept it nice and natural with a bright pink lip for some tutu's we were sent over by a designer.
I found this pack in HobbyCraft cost about £6? Its great there is so much in the pack it will last me for ages, need to find a good tub for it now!
For this look she has a black smoky eye quite basic and I was planning a black lip but what I picked up thinking it was black greasepaint was actually deep blue! Whoops! But actually in the photographs it turned out a really nice bright colour. As I'd never used gold leaf before I was debating on how to get it to stick to the lips but using a clear gloss it stayed on perfectly. The leaves are really easy to tear into smaller pieces and I just randomly stuck them in different shapes and sizes in the middle of the lip. And this is the finished look! For my first time, I was pretty impressed (if I do say so myself!!) and I can't wait to try something with gold leaf on the eyes!!
