POW Products of the Week

image

This week I have some really gorgeous new products to share with you.  I’m also REALLY excited to show off my new “POW” motif which was designed by very lovely illustrator Emma Kisstina! I fell in love with her awesome doodles and drawings of pretty lipsticks and makeup  a few months ago. Upon discovering we have quite a lot in common, namely our love of the colour pink and all things girlie and makeup related, we’ve collaborated for this new motif with some of my favorite products showcased! For general inspiration be sure to check out her blog http://emmakisstina.blogspot.co.uk and follow her work @emmakisstina :)

Without further ado, here my Products of The Week :

Face Lace - Day of The Dead Sugar Skulls by Phyllis Cohen

image

Just launched this week,  I have to show some love for Face Lace’s bespoke new Sugar Skull collection. Halloween is fast approaching and like most makeup artist, I am very excited! This BEAUTIFUL new range of face appliqués will be the perfect partner to any creative costume.  Founder of the brand, Phyllis Cohen has outdone herself yet again (if you haven’t already seen her pastel holographic designs at Mariana Jungman’s SS15 show get on google now!) The new Sugar Skull collection will make it easy to create beautiful Day of The Dead Skulls for any party or Halloween event.  In the collection, there are two main designs - Rosa & Espina. The Rosa piece *featured above* comes with or without crystal embellishments and features a beautiful rose on the forehead area. The Espina collection design is slightly different and features a beautiful spider web on the forehead area. Each design comes in a tasteful protective white box with instructions on how best to care/reuse and apply the pieces. As the collection is limited edition don’t wait around to get your hands on them. They range from £29.95- £39.95 and would be all you really need  to create a fun Halloween costume.

Phyllis showcased the new collection on gorgeous model Georgie Hobday -  her haunting eyes were perfect for the collection as seen here wearing the Espina piece :

Photographed with a softer take on the makeup, you can see that the collection really speaks for itself,  but there is no end to the creative fun you could have with this look. I’ll be working with the Rosa piece in a few weeks time and can’t wait to get out all my face paints and glitter *stay posted for this!* For those of you who want something a little simpler you could always try the glow in the dark “glow butante” pieces which retail at £8.50 and are quick and easy to apply (not too mention pack an amazing punch in terms of their “glowyness”!)

Mac Pro - Studio Eye Gloss

image

Also up this week and possibly (for me anyway) one of the most exciting Mac launches for awhile are the new Mac Studio Eye Glosses. Limited Edition and available in Pro Stores only these 4 new pot glosses are just my cup of tea :

Pearl Varnish - White 

Lightly Tauped - Light Beige 

Medoc - Deep Burgandy 

Noticeably Noir - Black 

Anyone who follows my work knows I love nothing more than a glossy eye or cheek. These eye glosses were causing quite the stir backstage and when mua @benjaminpuckey & Mac featured them on instagram at  Maison Martin Margiela SS15 New York Fashion Week everyone was buzzing about how to get ahold of them:

The 4 new shades are perfect for playing with different texture on not just the eyes but also different areas of the face. Here’s a snap taken from Mac Backstage @anndemeulemeester Paris Fashion Week of the  ”Oil Slick” eyes created using the Noticeably Noir Gloss - yum :  

image

Needless to say these wont be for everyone. Gloss is naturally going to move around the eye and it isn’t a long wear product, but for editorial work or anyone who just likes to play and have fun with makeup I’d recommend checking them out. The texture feels a lot “heavier” than any of the previous Mac glosses I’ve ever tried. It’s a lot stickier and packs a bit more of a punch. I’ve already tested the Pearl Varnish out on a shoot that will be coming out sometime this October so stay posted for that! The Medoc gloss will also come in handy for creating ooozey Halloween looks!

Nars - Instant Line & Pore Perfector

Next up is a less theatrical product, but nonetheless one I’ve been usig quite a lot - Nar’s Instant Line & Pore Perfector. This is a handy little pore minimizer which contains Vitamins  A, C & E (antioxidants which help the skin.) It’s fantastic to use under or over makeup to quickly “erase” the appearance of large pores and fine lines. It is similar to alot of priming products on the market but Nars were clever enough to package it in stick format making it ALOT quicker to work with. It’s also perfect to mattify oily areas of skin quickly. 

Dr. Lipp - Original Nipple Balm for Lips 

image

This week I’m also getting ALOT of use out of my Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple balm *ooo errr*. Dr. Lipp are celebrating their 10 year mark and I felt it was only fair to give them a shout out. I was introduced to the lip balm last year and ever since I’ve  been using it in my kit for various jobs. If you haven’t already heard of it, the lip balm is SUPER rich and great for chapped skin especially during the turn in the weather. Ideal for mua kits! Here are just a few things you can do with it :

  • Use it as a long lasting lip-gloss
  • Prep dry skin before applying foundation for a more even look
  • Cheek shine
  • Eye gloss for a dewy look
  • Shaping eyebrows
  • Lip primer to help prevent blotching
  • As a mixer for pigments
  • Perfect for ‘glitter lips’, ‘eye glitter’ & diamantes
  • For keeping victory rolls in place
  • As an assistant to help keep tassels in place
  • To ease chafing from sequins and spiky costumes
  • As a quick-grab healer for when you cut yourself on corset hooks
  • Last minute shoe polish

Wayne Goss - # 02 Brush 

image

Although I probably don’t need any more brushes, I’m a brush addict.  I’d never really heard of Wayne Goss before but a friend of mine showed me this brush and I have to say it is quite special. The hairs are very soft and just the right size for applying powder in particular areas without depositing too much. It also works well to apply highlighters, bronzers and blushers. *Also cruelty free which is always good!*

That’s it for this week! I hope you ilke the new look motif! (Thank you Kristina! <3!!) Stay posted for some very juicy new work coming out later this month and in the meantime stay warm!
