a fantastical fantasy day

Fantasy Makeup – a way to produce makeups portraying mythical and/or majestical creatures or things. Fantasy Makeup allows you to transform yourself into anything you can think of. It doesn’t have to be a full face of makeup – it could be the simplest of things – but we’re in Makeup college and we all love being creative and having fun so why not!

Wednesdays are half days so we only had enough time to produce one look today! There was an uneven number in today so I was lucky to work on Leah, a lovely (and patient) girl doing work experience for LA College, this allowed me to have a little more time to perfect my look as no one would be recreating a look on me. I decided to take my inspiration from the galaxy and many of the space makeups I saw around Halloween. The finished look is below:

To begin the look, I blocked out the eyebrows with the use of Prozade (an adhesive glue used for Special Effects) and Special Effects Wax. This wasn’t a necessary step however I had the time so threw the practice in. I then layered a salmon coloured cream concealer with a concealer that matched Leah’s skin tone, making sure to apply translucent powder between each layer and voila, the eyebrows disappeared! I then used a Supercolour from Kryolan in black to create and fill in the upside-down triangle shape. Then just using highly pigmented eyeshadows in my chosen colours, I distributed random amounts of colours throughout the black. I then added some fun glitter and small diamantes before colouring in the lips with a gold and glittery Supercolour form Kryolan. It’s an incredibly easy look to create and can be done very quickly if need be although I think the result is quite effective and I’m very happy with todays look!

As you can see in the photo above, all of the looks were incredibly individual but all completed to the highest standard and all really amazing and creative! Goes to show you can get your Fantasy inspiration from anywhere! xo

Some of you may not be so lucky as to share a house with someone so passionate and determined as Karen Glynn. Reason for this being that we are both completely bonkers, head over heels, crazy in love with Makeup and this definitely has it’s perks.

Pictured is Karens lovely look on my eyes which for some reason I keep calling glitterbug! She used Inglot glitter no. 73 and used Inglot’s duraline to attach this as opposed to a heavier lash glue. The look was gorgeous, she has so much talent and she definitely knows how to add glitter to a look without making it look to over the top. She’s a stunner, one of my bestest buds in Dublin and she is amazing at what she does. Ain’t nothing better than getting pampered on a Sunday night either.
