Gallery Update - Edie Campbell as Pattie Boyd for Lula
I absolutely love this shoot I worked on for the current issue of Lula Magazine. The story was based around a set of pictures Pattie Boyd did in the 60's ....a kind of beauty 'How To'. Twiggy also did a similar thing around the same time and both appeared in magazines to help the readers achieve their iconic make-up looks. To see the original pictures and inspiration look at my Pinterest board.
Trend - Orange Shades. A Simple Look for Olive/Darker Skin Tones
There are a lot of really bright oranges and hot peach tones around this summer. This is a really simple look using a selection. This look is mainly geared towards a olive/dark skin tones but could be easily adapted to suit paler skin. My lovely model Monique's parents are both Jamaican although she was born and brought up in the UK. As well as being a model Monique is also a theatre director ...click here to see a trailer and booking/Facebook info for her new play.

Summer Metallics - Evening Look
Model Meve is back with a seriously glamorous - and more than a little bit Lauren Hutton 1970's inspired - metallic summer look. I've given her super pale skin a warm golden tan, very different to the Candy Colour and Showgirl looks I gave her for the last two videos. Hope you like it x
Gallery Update - Eva Green
I recently did a cover shoot for InStyle (and these pictures for inside) with actress Eva Green. The shoot was part of the publicity for Eva's new movie, Tim Burton's Dark Shadows - which I'm dying to see her in. Dark Shadows is based on the cult, gothic TV soap opera of the same name which aired between 1966-71 and promises to be a must-see for all Burton fans.
Eva naturally has a great look, with beautiful pale skin and piercing blue eyes so I focused the intensity of the make-up on her eyes and kept her skin and lips very natural.

Natural Shimmery Summer Glow
I quickly filmed this video in response to all the requests for a product list and tutorial for the look I was wearing in the Pale Skin Foundation video I made last week. I hadn’t really thought too much about it as it took less than 5 minutes and was very natural with shimmer (often the best looks I know!). I was just going to post a list of the products but thought a tutorial would work best especially because of the new ‘skin miracle’ product I’ve discovered. This is one of those must have’s that you think hasn’t done much until you start getting lots of compliments about how great your skin is looking and then catch sight of yourself in miror and reaize why!! It works on all skin tones (apart from very dark), as either a primer with foundation, or instead of foundation.

Kate Winslet Glamourous Red Carpet Make-up
This is the look I did on Kate for the recent world premiere of Titanic 3D in London. We decided to do a modern version of classic hollywood glamour with a red lip. I felt this make up went well with the beautiful Jenny Packham dress she was wearing. Hairstylist Nicola Clarke did and amazing job with Kate's hair and I too agree with what Joan Rivers said on Fashion Police, her overall look was "perfection"!
