November 2013 Makeup Course

It’s already a week after the last day of makeup course finished. And I am already planning a new one for next year.

Together with an amazing lecturer, the head of Lithuanian association of makeup artists Jolanta Sargautyte – Jagminiene we had intensive 6 days course for makeup artists to be in Lithuanian language. The course was super intense- our students got the basics and special occassion makeup as well as had a chance to get in touch with their creative side and try photographic makeup. For the last day we invited an experienced makeup specialist from Ireland to do two popular wedding makeup demonstrations.

I felt so proud to see the girls developing so quickly- some of them did makeup on someone else for the first time in their lives and some of them are already working makeup artists. And all of them showed such an amazing improvement. It’s not just teaching, it’s trying to find out each of the students passion and style, get to know their personality and give them the confidence.

We had a pleasure of having photographer Kamal Mostofi to photograph work of the students, so they will have something for them to remember, pictures of themselves and their models to use in the portfolios.

I wish all the best to the students!

Rimmel Scandal eyes Kohl liner

I was so surprised that my students of corporate appropriate makeup class loved Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl liner in color ''Nude'' so much that they all decided to buy it. That is the reason why I decided to write a blog post about it. 

I was doing a makeup demonstration on one of the girls. I applied The Kohl liner on her waterline and suddenly all the girls were asking the name of the pencil and taking pictures of it with their phones! 

Well it does not do magic but certainly it does make the eyes appear larger and brighter. It has this fantastic creamy nude color, which does the job withought looking too obvious or harsh.  The texture of a Kohl liner is super creamy, so it glides on very smoothly and the color appears very pigmented. It's has a waterproof formula which makes it stay on the waterline reasonably a long period of time.

IMATS 2013 London

I was working the whole three days of IMATS exhibition at Makeup For Ever stand. It was an amazing experience- MUFE is one of my go-to makeup brands for a long time already, I met so many nice people and with some of them we will stay in touch for sure and the whole experience was just amazing. It was such a busy days but even all the girls were super tired but they still had smiles on their faces!

Unfortunately I couldn’t see any seminars, but managed to find couple of moments to get the items I needed for my kit.

I was very happy to find Stilazzi large on set bag at PAM stand. Usually I’m using my Zuca Pro Artist bag, but I needed something to carry on shoulder and large enough to fit quite a lot of products. Stilazzi bag quite spacious and clear- so it’s going to be easy to see where everything is and it has lots of different pockets, which is super convenient!

I also got Beauty So Clean cosmetic Sanitizer Mist with some samples of cosmetic sanitizing wipes. I already tested the wipes and can admit that it’s super convenient and definitely will be on my ‘what to purchase list’. I got a big bottle of mist, because sanitizing the makeup is one of the most important things to do when you are a makeup artist!

Of course, I couldn’t stay away from brushes, but I was good and got only few: one bdellium tools lip brush 542 (because it’s pink and because it can never be too much of lip brushes) and just 3 of Crownbush brushes.

Since Kryolan had good offers, I purchased one of Dermacolor mini concealer paletes in shade Medium. I already got one in Dark and I love that product... 

At the very end of IMATS Make Up For Ever made us an amazing surprise. All the girls got massive bags of makeup products which even made us forget how tired we were! I was already swatching different products and cannot wait to put them in use!

United Makeup Artist EXPO

Last weekend the United Makeup Artist Expo took place in Business Design Centre in Islington, London (http://www.umae.co.uk/). Of course I couldn’t miss the opportunity of visiting the place full of different makeup professionals, seminars, brands and of course discounts!

I attended the event on Saturday and was able to see seminars of an amazing director of makeup artistry MAC Cosmetics UK- Terry Barber (modern take to goth makeup), Ben Nye himself with the help of makeup artist Paul Garcia and (modern 1920′s colorful look) a full of energy and optimism Sian Richards, who designed and produced a company called The London Brush Company (natural blended and beautiful makeup). All of them were so different but so inspiring! There were so much more seminars to attend but unfortunatelly I wasn’t able to…

The fun part was browsing around and communicating with the atendees and playing with colors! There was some awesome deals so I went wild purchasing Ben Nye cosmetics, as well as I was able to swatch OCC Lip Tars and had to get a black one   and see so many undertalked brush companies…I would have purchased so much more brushes, but I am waiting for the Sigma brushes to come, so I had to resist

I came home with a full bag of goodies and now cannot wait to try them out!
