Hi my lovelies! Yes, I have been MIA! If July was hectic because of my move, August was the same but this time there was just so much work! I have yet to share you lovelies the editorial that I did for a magazine where we transformed 4 lucky and lovely ladies into their favourite style icons. :)
But before I do that I want to share with all of you my recent work entitled The Laws of Attraction. This beauty feature aside from it being important to me professionally, has a sentimental twist to it. 10 years ago, the man who inspired me to pick up a make up brush and start painting faces, the late and great Kevyn Aucoin passed away.
Because of his amazing work that graced the covers of Cosmopolitan during the early 90's featuring the Supermodels photographed by Francesco Scavullo, I fell in love with Make Up and boy, did I fall hard! lol! I am talking as if I am describing how I fell in love with my BF! hahahaha.
From 1996 when I purchased my 1st professional brushes till now, it has just been like a marriage made in heaven, I just keep on falling in love - with new products, new techniques, looks.
To pay tribute to the man who started it all for me, I thought about putting together what I think makes a great face. While it is fun to experiment with colours and looks, a flawless skin is a must and a red lip is simply timeless. Much like Kevyn's work... timeless and simply inspiring.
THE FLAWLESS SKIN
NOTHING CAN BE MORE BEAUTIFUL
MASTER WHERE TO APPLY YOUR HIGHLIGHT AND YOU WILL ALWAYS LOOK LIKE YOU ARE LIT FROM WITHIN.
CONTOUR.... MY FAVOURITE
CHISELED CHEEKBONES AND AN AQUILINE NOSE DOES SOMETHING WONDERFUL TO A WOMAN'S SELF CONFIDENCE.
TO SAY THAT I AM OBSESSED WITH CREATING THE SYMMETRICAL BROWS WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
FULL, SLIGHTLY LIGHTER AND ARCHED BROWS ARE MY FAVOURITE.
THE BLACK LINER
ONE WAY TO LOOK PUT TOGETHER IN MINUTES IS TO MASTER THE BLACK LINER AND THE FLICK.
REMINISCENT OF BOMBSHELLS DURING THE 60'S, THE FLICK IS SYNONYMOUS TO BEAUTIES LIKE BARDOT AND LOREN.
THE SMOKEY EYE.
JUST SEXY... FULL STOP.
THE RED LIP
EVERY WOMAN MUST OWN A RED LIPSTICK THAT MAKES HER FEEL UBER GLAMOROUS.
