Apologies for the Flash Gordon reference there …
I’ve had a really busy week (finishing one job, and preparing to start another) so there’s been very little blogging, but I’m gearing up for the first in my sets of makeovers tomorrow, and I thought you might like to see some of the stuff I’ll be using … Click on the photo for an enlarged version.
I’ve spent a few happy hours today researching the look I’m planning for tomorrow. This has mainly consisted of me digging out my copies of Making Faces, and Face Forward by Kevyn Aucoin (and wondering where the hell my copy of The Art of Make Up is, to boot), and I’ve been happily ensconced in looking at the pictures, reading his wonderfully enthusiastic prose and wondering which looks I can recreate. Kevyn is probably the first make up artist I became aware of, and his love of women’s beauty, particularly the beauty of more mature women is evident on every single page. There are more make up artists I admire these days, but Kevyn is responsible for my love of changing people’s looks, and it’s kind of his fault that I do what I do.
