Photoshoot Dairy 13.11.11

Woah.. After a long week at work I managed to still keep up the hard work and focused on my MUA work over the weekend. The photographer had a cool water concept and a geisha/rocky edgy style which was pretty cool, different from all the things I've done already. Here are some behind the scenes and some of the final shots :)

My New Cleanser..Garnier's Exfo-Brusher Wash!!


So I was introduced to this Garnier face wash by my good friend and yes I have now been converted, this has now replaced my as my daily cleanser. 

Reasons why I love it 1. The bristles help gentle exfoliate removing any dead skin cells/makeup that my wipes did not remove and just generally buffing my skin. (I like to say it's kinda like the Clarisonic but a manual one lol and cheaper)  2. The gel turns into a form once applying it to the skin in circular movements with the brusher, it leaves a fresh cooling sensation after washing - give you that clean feeling 3. The skin generally gets worse after using for a few days but thats because its lifting the dirt/pores to the surface layer and then after a week or so my skin has turned smoother, more glowing and pores and marks are less obvious.

Another Photo Shoot..Another Step Closer

I've been quiet a busy bee lately, planning photo shoots building and collecting ideas for my portfolio as a variety of styles and genres are a must to show versatility. it's important to show a range and skills as mentioned by Nicci Jackson (my mentor from MUSE School) at least 10 different shots are needed before I can approach agencies and try to assist other top MUA, so for now its just practice and self learning.

Over the weekend I did my first location shoot with my lovely friend Jennifer Chan, We did some Fashion, Beauty and Glamour shots, Here are some images :) Hope you like them.



Some behind the scene images I took on my phone :)



Some of the makeup i used..had to use my car at my for makeup and wardrobe..thats how its got to be when your on location..anywhere has got to do!



And..the some final images!!!!

Happy 6 Month Glossy!! congratulations on the success and loving all the different product ranges I am seeing each month! Really expanding my product knowledge as this is so important as an artist.

I received my second Glossy box yesterday, love this monthly treat and surprise. I like that I am able to test products that I've never tried before.



Dermalogica multivitamin Mask and face Scrub


My extra gift Dermalogica lip balm with Dermalogica bag

Dermalogica products are great for everyone, their products are made to suit all skin types even those with sensitive skin. A popular skincare brand in most MUA kits as models/celebs loves it.


This lovely Leighton Denny shimmery blue nail polish is lovely, perfect colour for me
Went on smoothly and dried very quick!


Absolutely in love with this Stila eyeliner. 
Its smudge and waterproof great for going out, it comes out in this lovely black/brown colour with tints of gold shimmer perfect for christmas parties.

My week at MUSE Makeup School

My blog has been very much neglected for the last week or so :( and this is why...

I've been a busy bee studying at London MUSE



Last week Monday was my first official day at London Muse makeup style and education school, I went for the advance course which was a 6 day intense course with a photo shoot with photographer Joel Anderson on the 7th day. Still waiting for the finial photos to arrive, can't wait!!

My week at MUSE was phenomenal, words can't explain my experience, makeup artist and director of MUSE Nicci Jackson was a fantastic mentor, she taught, guided and provided us with so much knowledge and inspiration to follow our dreams of becoming a professional artist. I learnt so much in just one week and my confidence and creativity has truly blossom! Nicci and the pro team are amazing, they were always there to support us and help with any problems and difficulties with had. I am now a proud member of the MUSE family.

Truly would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to get into the world of makeup! MUSE really supports you all the way and helps you reach your dreams! They have defiantly helped me!


Here are some pictures of my incredible journey.
