Hello Poutlings 😉
Just thought I’d share a few pictures of me doing my thang… Makeup for those who have no idea what that is 🙂
These pictures were taken at the launch party/fashion show for Jozi’s Next Super Model (still don’t think its aired yet….), it last year October at Jet Night Club by the Dome… and they are a couple of pictures of the behind the scenes chaos!
All of this done in 1 hour and 15 minutes, man I love to hate deadlines!
Looking back at these pics makes me realised how far I’ve come as a makeup artist over the past year, but I suppose like any art, you get better with time when you polish, refine, chop and change your skills!
Savannah Egan, my first model for the evening.... Check the difference the false lashes make 🙂 oooh and do not stress, loose powder on her forehead and pale cheeks were fixed shortly after this was taken.
aaah some lippy!
Savannah almost ready to go and work that ramp!
Lauren Weeks, my gorgeous friend and amazing model 🙂
Lauren tells me how to do it... Cos she bosses me around... haha
Lauren's finished makeup!
Delene Frost.... She really resembles Rihanna!
Hannah Young, at the time she was the co-producer of the show
all the gorgeous faces painted by moi!
kisses for Lauren! ha ha xxx
Anyway, there’s just a little glimpse into my chaotic life of makeup…
Are you sick and tired of cake-y looking makeup? MAC, being the genius that they are have the best product on the market to make your skin look radiant even after powder. I live by the awesomeness that is Fix + which is not only a makeup spritz that holds that makeup for even longer and finshes the look on your face – it also hydrates your skin! Bonus!
I really became a huge fan of Fix + when I was on set for Jozi’s Next Super Model in February this year, our hot South African summer days spent at Thaba Ya Batswana really made me and the other artists hot, especially the day we did the body painting challenge. Never mind us doing makeup on the models, every now and then you’d catch me and the other makeup artists spraying this stuff on our faces to cool us down, its like a light mist covering your face. It’s definately a must for any set, especially if its hot. We used it on the models sometimes too 😉
Your skin will absorb the spray very quickly once your makeup application has been done, its also soothing for sensitive skins, like mine. Ever have a streak mark from your foundation brush or foundation sponge? Spray Fix + onto a duo fiber brush once or twice you can fix any streak mark on your face, its fabulous.
If you suffer from dry skin, especially if you’ve been perscribed acne products from dermatologists – use this Fix + in the morning to wake up your skin and throughout the day to hydrate and moisturise your skin.
Try it, I promise you won’t regret it.
Pretty pouting with radiant skin!
