New Year’s Eve Makeup

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all spent wonderful moments on Christmas this year because I for one, had the best in years. But as times flies when you are having fun, New Year’s Eve party is around the corner.

Everybody wants to look good and unique at the New Years’s Eve party whether it’s the clothes, the shoes or the makeup. For this year, I chose this glam/sophisticated yet natural look that complements both younger and older ladies.

For the eyes I chose three shades of blue eye shadows. On the bottom layer I dashed some matte dark blue, on top of that I dashed some shimmering lighter shade of blue, on the outer corner I smudged some dark gray and on the inner eye I dotted some metallic blue eyeliner just to get that sparkling touch.

For the face and cheeks I used Artistry makeup products (Exact Fit Foundation, Mineral Powder, 3D Powder). Light contour your cheecks with bronze loose powder and some rosewood cheek blush but try to keep it clean and simple because you know the rule “less is more” especially on a night like this.

The lips should stay in a neutral tone because we want to emphasize the eyes this time. Try light shades of pink, chocolate, peach, coral.img_1122Thank you guys for checking this makeup out and hopefully you will find it inspiring.

May your 2017 New Year’s Eve bring you a new wave of happiness, hope, health, grace and last but not least, fun!

Dramatic Red Eye Makeup

Hi guys!

I recently bought these red vibrant fantasy eyelashes from Elise and I thought it was time for a new fantasy makeup concept.

Dramatic Red Eye Makeup

For the base makeup I used Artistry liquid foundation in a natural tone, Artistry Exact Fit Perfecting Loose Powder (light and dark shades).

For the eye makeup I used Show Makeup by Fabio Stefano , shades red, yellow, white and black matte water colors.

Top lashes were coated with Artistry Signature Eyes Volume Mascara and the brows were colored with shades of brown and matte red.

For the lips I combined two shades of lipstick, light beige and natural pink but as a base, I used  professional  eye widener white pencil from Fabio de Stefano.

All in all, I had so much fun creating this look and I hope you find it inspiring for your next take on fantasy colorful makeup.

Lime green pop art makeup

Hi guys!

I am in love with neon colors such as yellow green, lime green, pop pink, pop orange. For this look, I chose lime green as main theme and pop art as style but I promise to create looks with the other neon colors as well in 2016. I love comic female characters and pop art and it’s been a while since my last pop art makeup.

For this dramatic eye makeup, I chose black, lime green face paint water colour, matte white, a little turquoise, blue volume lash mascara limited edition from Artistry and eyelashes from Ardell. lime green pop artIf you want to create this kind of look, make sure you get the face makeup ready, place loose powder under your eyes because you might get your face makeup ruined, and eye makeup afterwards, lips should be well contoured with black eye liner on top and white eye liner on bottom lips, then apply the wet lime green color. After it’s dry, contour again with black on the bottom lip but only half way for a more graphic look.

Brands used: Artistry, Show Makeup by Fabio Stefano, Ardell, Smiffys.

Black and white graphic makeup

Hi guys,

It’s been a little while since my last post but I’ve been pretty busy with hair and makeup ideas from different styles, times, categories, countries and suddenly I realised I haven’t done a wild graphic makeup in a while.

This makeup style is pretty easy to create as a pro makeup artist at a fashion show or in theater/stage show,but at home in the mirror, is pretty challenging to be honest.

I tried to have fun with it, especially with my hair. After the makeup was done, I thought messy wavy hair should do the trick because the makeup is pretty rigid and the pink dotted wired ribbon made perfect contrast with the whole look altogether.

I hope you enjoy this crazy look at least for a fashion dress code party or for fashion shootings, editorials, etc. Share if you enjoy my post or leave a comment below. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Stylish shimmer makeup for 2015 New Year’s Eve

Shimmer eye makeup 2015

Hi guys!

I know there is some time left till New Year’s Eve party and many of you party lovers out there already know what dress, hairstyle and makeup look you will wear. But there are some of you, maybe just like me, with no plans whatsoever and with no idea on what to wear on this special night ( indoor, outdoor, glam club, rock bar, or your parents couch, hope not). In that case, I always start with my makeup, then comes the hair arrangements (or not, depends on my mood) and last but not least, clothes to wear.

Shimmer eye makeup 2015

This year, I thought a cool glamorous shimmer eye would do the trick, wavy hair ( I just rolled it all up in layers and pinned each layer just as if I would use plastic rolls, sprayed some finishing spray on and left it like that until makeup was done), jeans, loose knit mint green sweater, silverish accessories (if you are blonde you could go with gold/gold-like accessories) and some crazy old/new grudge boots and you will definitely rock the house. Of course you adapt your clothing as you wish, I just shared my own style, especially if you will attend a more sophisticated party. This glamorous shimmer makeup will attract eyes on you wherever you will be on that 31st of December, 2015.  Shimmer eye makeup 2015

The balance between eye makeup, lips cheeks and face contouring should always be a priority. There are tons of pictures of makeup techniques on Pinterest that should help you get this makeup done somehow. Make sure you have a sticky creamy eye shadow base for the glitter to stick on and not fall out. That’s kind of a nice trick to use if you do not have a glitter glue around the house that is not toxic. You can use fat creamy crayons in various shimmery colors. I used Artistry, which is one of the world’s top five skincare brands. There are many types of sticky texture crayons out there, just pick one in the same colour as your top shimmer/glitter accent.

I used graphic technique for contouring and colouring my lips in nude shades. I used a brownish lip liner for the outside contour and a more dark plum lip liner for the interior contour. In between I used a chocolate beige lipstick to give it some highlight. I got this pretty cool nude contoured lips that calm down the shimmer/glitter eye makeup. I used light pink shimmer blush for highlights, light velvet for the apple cheeks and medium bronze contour powder for the face bones (including my nose, only the sides).

Tadaaa! This is how I would go out at the 2015 New Year’s Party! Stylish but casual, romantic but down to earth. What do you think of my take on this New Year’s hair & makeup look?

 

Thank you for stopping by guys! Have wonderful Christmas Holidays and cherish those beautiful family moments! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Last but not least, I really hope you have a blast on your 2015 New Year’s Party, whether you spend it at home with your beloved or partying like a freak at the office with other workaholics like you, outside in the snow, under the stars or at a rock bar, stay beautiful and happy! Until next time…

Childhood friend Bridal Makeup

Hey guys!

A while ago my first childhood friend, Tamara, asked me if I would do her bridal makeup on her wedding day. I felt so excited about her idea of “the look”. We both agreed that a retro look would definitely be perfect for her. She allowed me to share some pictures with her final look which I think turned out pretty awesome…retro wedding look I would say. Her idea of the bridal makeup was somewhat a 40’s-50’s style and I think we both loved the result.

For this makeup I used a black eyeliner, medium shade of liquid foundation medium shade (natural) from Artistry, medium light loose powder from Make-up Studio Romania, rose pink blush from Artistry, red lip liner from Show Makeup by Fabio Stefano, red lipstick from Artistry, white shimmer eye shadow on the lid, light brown shadow in the crease for the depth, light peach shade under the brow line, some fairy dust tapped on top for some light shimmery effect (it will look good in the pictures) and dark brown brow shadow to give a little thickness to the brow line. I hope you find this rejuvenating bridal look as inspiring as I did.

This is my friend on her wedding day! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Victorian Stage Makeup

Hi guys!

Lately I’ve been struggling to come up with some new concepts and to find new inspiration for my personal character makeup collection mainly because I always want to try something off the record. So I’ve stumbled upon some Victorian Women pictures and paintings. Some of these ladies were truly ahead of their time in terms of makeup, hairstyles and clothing. So, I grabbed my makeup kit and picked up some eye shadows and lipsticks and got down to work. I didn’t have any appropriate Victorian clothing or accessories but I tried to improvise. Makeup is all about experimenting colors, foundations, cheek colors and lipsticks and playing around with hairstyles that blend with the makeup idea that you have in mind. This is what came out in the end. I hope you guys find inspiration in everything that you do and try to have fun no matter how tough it gets. Have an awesome weekend guys!

Snow White Makeup

Hei guys!

As most of you know by now, I am crazy about characters, cosplay, movie and theatrical makeup. After a long brainstorm about which female character to represent through my makeup, Snow White popped in my head.How I came up with the idea? Well, since the movie Maleficient, everybody wanted to try out the evil queen makeup on. I haven’t done that yet because I still want to grow as an artist and express my ideas without following trends all the time. Besides trends, I somehow feel like I can’t do any villain right now because too much evil is all around us anyway so why not do the good characters instead and represent positive traits through makeup creativity. That’s why Snow White to me as a female figure stands as a symbol of beauty, wisdom, patience, kindness and intuition as well as human weakness which is natural. I tried to interpret  the “apple hypnosis” scene when she is tempted to eat the beautiful shiny poisoned apple. I hope you find this female character as interesting in meaning as I did and hope my makeup brought out some creativity in all you out there who find meaning in this art.

Thank you guys for stopping by and feel free to comment or share my post! 🙂

Biba/Flapper

Hi guys!

In cinematography, the use of light can influence the meaning of a shot. For example, film makers often portray villains that are heavily shadowed or veiled, using  the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject called silhouettes.

Techniques involving light include backlight(silhouette), and under-lighting(light across a character form).

Biba

I have always been fond of the silent and nostalic era of the late 20’s, early 30’s. Cinematic teqniques, jazz music and the promiscuous decadence of the night clubs. People back then were struggling with post war trauma and the women were most affected in all senses by those effects. They no longer obeyed strict rules of the tradition. Many of them lost their beloved men in the war and were now struggling to earn a decent living. Many of them found refuge in night clubs. They used makeup and clothes as a refuge. They liked parties, drinking and having fun. Decadence back then was a sort of slap in the face for the American government  and soon The Flapper became a general trend throughout the world.

The flapper (or Biba, trend of the late 60’s) was considered a female entertainer who would wear dramatic makeup, heavy jewelry, could sing, dance, drink, smoke and talk politics and who would heavily contribute to the export of American jazz culture to Europe.

Nowadays, the concept of the Flapper has decayed so much that it leaves me numb in pain…just like a tooth decay (which left untreated) slowly rots the tooh to its roots, cause pain and infection and the only way to get rid of that is by pulling it out….

With the help of C.P.Axenoi, my beloved photographer, editor(and life partner

Hopefully our work will inspire you to create your own flapper/biba character. If you have and questions please leave a message or write a comment below.
