Day to Night Makeover

This is a makeover I did for Michelle which is a natural day time look heavied up to turn it into a glamorous blue eye for evening. Michelle has naturally high full cheekbones so very little contouring is necessary, as can be seen from the side profile. The last two photos on bottom row are the ‘before’ shots.

The minimal daytime look is suitable for going to work and the night time look could be for the celebratory drinks on Friday night!

“I was impressed by her professionalism and expert understanding of how to accentuate my best features, conceal skin imperfections and use makeup to create luminosity and youthful radiance. Ivy gave me a makeover session trying out several looks from natural to evening to dramatic. She gave me great tips such as how  creating and highlighting a high arch in the eyebrows and clever use of eyeshadow can widen the eyes and have a “youth-ening” effect. She also had clever tips on how to shape my lips to give them a fuller, more alluring effect. She is truly an artist with the make-up brush!”

It was good to have a party to go to because I really wanted to practise this look, especially the beehive ‘lite’ which only took 15 minutes. A bit messier than I would have liked but I have two children so time was scarce. The make up took 45 minutes to achieve.

Brush Roll

The very Friday I finished my course at Illamasqua I made a brush roll. When I got to the bias binding, I was getting very fed up. But it’s worth it as it’s now done and used all the time.

This is a make up I did for Mary. It is a classic look with eyeliner and red lipstick. Mary has great skin that glows in each shot so she doesn’t need much doing. Hayz from Hayz Louise Photographer took the photographs. The central photo, middle row, shows Mary ‘before’ the makeover.

This is a makeover I did for Rosi. It is an evening look, midnight blue smoky eye. She has a great eye for colour and design so we didn’t a stylist. She is a trained hairdresser and put up her own hair, which really finishes the look smartly.
