Sorry for the lack of posts inbetween Youtube offerings lately, work has been majorly keeping me away from the internet apart from checking e-mails etc!
But it's not all been doom & gloom as I've had some really enjoyable jobs recently. My favourite being the shoot I did the makeup for with the fabulous girls of GlamRocksLuna. (Recent Winners of Irelands' most influencial fashion blog award) http://glamrocksluna.blogspot.com/
I've worked with Úna & Louise before and it is always a very fashionable pleasure!!
As the girls haven't posted the final pic's from the shoot yet I don't want to give away the goods but I can show ye the makeup I did for the shoot which consisted of sophisticated black with plenty of glitter .....
And of course how gorgeous is the model, Maire Huges!! (Catwalk model agency, Galway)
The rest of the face and lips were kept pretty natural and nude with light contouring, allowing the eyes to take the lime-light.
For the eye makeup I started off by applying Mac's "Blackground" Paint-pot from lashline to brow using my #224 blending brush and applied a little under the lower lashes. (http://www.maccosmetics.com/index.tmpl)
I then added "Blacktrack" Fluidline, for more depth, in the same way but just brought this up a little beyond the crease line.
I applied a matte black eyeshadow to set the base and kept it most intense closest to the lashline.
To prepare for the glitter I pressed a little of MakeupForever's "Eye seal" on top (http://www.makeupforever.com/) before applying plenty of Ben Nye's Black Glitter. (http://www.bennyemakeup.com/)
I used a disposable mascara wand to flick away any glitter that fell down. The false lashes are a NYC pair (http://www.newyorkcolor.com/) I picked up at a local pharmacy.
The brilliant photographer on the day was Shane O'Connor (http://sketchyinc.com/) and I will definitely show ye all his gorgeous handy work as soon as he has finished with the photographs!
Apart from that, here are a few shots from the previous shoots I worked on with the guys in case anyone missed them before!
(It's Maire again ^_^)
Anyhow, that's it for now. I will be posting pic's from the shoot, as well as the "behind the scene's" one's that I took, as soon as i can so keep checking back for that.
In the mean time......
