Advertising Campaign Red or Dead (behind the scene)
AW14 Behind the Scenes shoot with Red or Dead Team .
I had a change to be working with the creative Red or Dead team.
Is always a great experience and challenge when you have to work with clients for first time and is very important to be very creative,professional and to deliver up to their standards.
This photoshoot is for their AW14/15 collection.
The idea and the theme was mix of school drop out, and pretty in punk. We had two lovely beautiful models, Camille Munn and BB, to front the shoot, and sourced some great locations around London to take some snaps…
The shoot started very early morning where we all meet up for makeup and hair preparation.
I had very beautiful models and would like to share some makeup products using on the shoot.
Camila Munn got beautiful dark skin and perfect eyes shape for any makeup looks.
We decide to keep natural definition on the eyes using eyeliner in black by Kryolan makeup.
Define the lips with Mac cosmetics lip liner in Brick
Flow by matte red lipstick pro palette by Mac cosmetic (Dare you )
After few hours makeup and hair done both girls looked beautiful and all dress up with amazing Red or Dead shoes and some accessories we had great locations for our shoot.
It was very stress free till the moment we walked to our first location.
The heavens decided to open up for nearly our whole day of shooting, meaning many of our plans had to change!
But all of us and Red or Dead girls know how to power through, (whilst having a good time obviously!).
We had a great day and great shoot at the end even the rain didn’t stop us of producing the final looks and leaving everyone happy and exited to see the final images.
take a look at our sneak peak snaps of behind the scenes of the day, and see how we did!

Protect your lips with SPF lipstick this summer !!!
Summer time is here and most of the time we forget to look after our lips when we are exposed to sun light. Lips are very delicate place frequent places that you will get burn.
Lip gloss doesn’t count as is very shiny and will stay on the surface attract sunlight that lips will get burn.
The best is to start using lip balm with SPF that will protect your lips.
With my experience I found sometime the less cost brand are the easiest and most effective lip balm that are non sticky,non greasy and will condition and protect your lips with SPF 15.
.Palmers Cocoa Butter lip balm with SPF 15 with Vitamin E
.Carmex Moisturising Vanilla lip balm SPF 15
. Bobbie Brown lip balm SPF 15 non greasy
. Kiehl’s lip balm SPF 15
.Laura Mersier Hydratint SPF 15
With add a hint of colour HydraTint with SPF15 shields your lips from damaging UVA and UVB rays, keeping them soft and supple. Formulated with mint and orange breath-freshening flavour, this luxurious lip balm also adds a hint of colour for perfect, flawless lips.
Applying lip balm with SPF 15 before you apply your favourite lipstick is not only will soft your lips also will protect your lips from sun burning. When your lipstick rubs off then the balm won’t rub off straight away like it would on top because it would be the first thing to rub off.
If you are not lipstick person and you still want to look great and feel great on your holiday I would suggest this beautiful soft creamy lipstick with SPF 15.
You will look great and your lips will be still protected from the sun damage.
– YSL Rouge Volupte SPF 15
Peach Passion and Extreme Coral are my favourite for summer sun kissed look
Very smooth creamy texture that leaves the lips soft with radiant colour with SPF 15
– Clinique High Impact SPF 15.
I love it Pure Posh colour is my favourite
They are high on colour and aparantley will stay for 8 hours. It is highly moisturizing shades that continually smooth, soft and again with SPF 15
– Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick SPF 18
-Kiko Glossy Stylo SPF 15
-Chanel SOIN TENDRES LEVRES Hydra-Treatment Lip Care SPF 15protect agents UV damage
Hope you like my choice !!!
Have a happy summer
How to create a smoky eye with black and silver eyeshadow
Party look to create with only black and silver eyeshadow colours sometimes we all avoid as we don’t want to make mistake and to look like we have punched black eyes.
I desire to write and share some great products that are available to creative this look for any time going out,
When I do dark smokey eyes I normally prep the skin with moisturiser and I’m working on the eyes first as it maybe a bit eyeshadow drops on the skin. I like my models skin to look nice and clean.
After when I’m done with eyes I have to clean the skin and put your favourite foundation for clean polish mess free look.
Here is eyes shadows products that I use on my model to create this smokey eyes.
I prepared the eye lid with bit eye primer (stay all day liquid eye primer from Stilla £13 ) for long lasting and crease free look.
After I did apply Bourjois 24H Colour in Merville d’argent no:1 £6.99 with my mac 224 brush all over the lids as a base colour.
You can use any light base colours over the lids and brow bow for bit highlight.
With Loreal Color infallible Yeshadow in Eternal black £6.99 use on the lower lush line and smoke out the socket line
With this glittery eyeshadow.
Bleeding very well on the socket line .
After you can apply a pop of Stilla foil finish eyeshadow in platinum ,£33.50 on the inner corners of the eyes.
For the lips create a shimmery gleam on lips with Bobbie Brown High shimmer lip gloss in beach with vitamin C and E for high shine ,£18
You can compliment the whole look with very light touch of Mac Spring shin powder blush , £18
Here is the look.

New cosmetics products launches Mac, NARS, Sleek, Makeup Revolution, Bare Minerals
New Cosmetic Brand Launches
A new affordable brand of make-up will be hitting the high street soon, in the form of Makeup Revolution. Comparable to the likes of brands such as MUA and Sleek, with the quality of products belaying their tiny price tags, Makeup Revolution offers a comprehensive range of over 300 products, covering all aspects of the face, prices start (almost unbelievably) from as little as £1.
Available online, the products will be available from http://www.superdrug.com from 9th April, and will be stocked in-store later in the summer.
Chiselled cheeks from NARS
NARS introduces the ultimate make-up essential for perfectly defined cheekbones in the form of their new Contour Blushes (£30). Not blusher as you’d know it, but rather a duo that features a deeper shade to enhance definition and a lighter shade to illuminate the highpoints of the face. Perfectly formed, the duo has more of the contour product, a great idea from NARS as most MUAs tend to use more of this on the face than highlighter in general. Available in three colourways to suit all skintones, apply the deeper shade to the hollows of the cheek and along the hairline, then sweep the light shade across the cheekbone toward the temple to soften and highlight. We love Olympia, an Ivory/Rose shade. Lightweight and smooth, the formula creates the most beautiful visual depth and dimension in a single swipe. It’s available from Selfridges in an exclusive preview from 1st April, and nationwide at http://www.narscosmetics.co.uk from 15th April.
MAC announces Patentpolish Lip Pencils
Finally entering the lip pencil arena is MAC, with its new Patentpolish Lip Pencils ($20). A round-tipped twist-up lip pencil keeps things tidy and super simple to apply the bright and glossy colours. The Pencils come in 12 shades, ranging from Innocent (natural nude-beige) to Sultana, a vampy dark grape. The unique blend of creamy emollients keeps lips soft with the smooth, rich texture, without being sticky or heavy. Available from the 3rd April in the States, we’re hoping for a UK release soon. Watch this space.
Brush up with Sleek Eyebrow Stylist
The new Eyebrow Stylist from Sleek (£5.99) makes creating the perfect eyebrow a simple and quick two-step process. The double-ended product contains a twist-up pencil to fill in sparse areas, and handy spoolie end to sculpt the brow into the desired shape. The slanted tip of the pencil allows for both precision and quick, broader strokes. The matte, creamy formula applies easily, without tugging at the skin or being too waxy. Available now in three shades: Light, Medium and Dark from Boots and Superdrug.
bareMinerals evolve Prime Time
This month sees the launch of bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer Cream Daily Defence SPF 30 (£23). Available in two shades from April (Light/Medium) and two more arriving in September (Fair/Tan), the brand has taken its best-selling Prime Time Primer and adjusted the formula to provide new benefits. By introducing a triple-action, all-in-one tinted formula, the primer diminishes the appearance of any discolouration or imperfections, while also providing sun protection and an award-winning primed base.
Hydrating Lip Balms join the Tint club at Benefit
Benefit has added another formula to its ever-popular range of lip and cheek products, beginning with the iconic Benetint. The new Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms (£14.50) are available in four colours, to match the corresponding lip and cheek tint (£24.50) – Benebalm (rose hue), Lolibalm (candy-orchid), Chachabalm (mango hue) and Posiebalm (poppy pink). Smoothing and conditioning with rich mango butter, the balms provide a hit of moisture which delivering a hint of colour.
