Makeup Madness

Gemma Collins and I have been having such a good time together and we have got everything we like down to a T.

Yesturday Gemma went off filming for TOWIE at Jess Wright's shop, With Love Jessica. I did her makeup for the occasion and she looks absolutely stunning.

Gemma has found her balance and know what she looks good in and how she wants to look like which is unbelievable. I wish I was that lucky.

Gemma has great features. I like to make her eyes stand out. They are a gorgeous shade of blue and any colour suits her which is amazing.

This is the make-up look we did yesturday...

Which is also the same makeup in the above picture.

Our Loves......

MAC, Studio Fix Powder/ Foundation
Red Cherry Lashes
NARS, Laguna Bronzer
MAC, Blotting Powder
MAC Blacktrack Eyeliner
Cloud Nine, The O Rollers
 (All the make-up comes in a vairety of shades, the lashes come in a variety of styles and the rollers come in a variety of sizes!!)

We use these products on every single look we do. We always vary eye colour and lip colour.
These products are  must haves for everyone. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Girly Laughs on Valentines Day!!

I could not not of spent time with a better person today, especially as its Valentines Day. I was round Gemmas house doing her hair and makeup for filming. We have grown so close recently, maybe because I practically live there and I think I'm going to be charged rent very soon haha!!

Much love on Valentines Day babe...enjoy!!!

This pic was taking in a moment of laughter and I caught her off guard. She might kill me later but I still think she looks amazing!!

MAC Morning with Gemma Collins

Everytime I go to Gemmas, I could literally stay there hours gossiping and chatting away over absolute jibba jabba but I swear she is busier than me and we never stand still before she has to jet off to film or a photo shoot. Its a never ending story but we make the most of the time we have together.

I love a bit of MAC and bought lots of things so Gemma and I had a lovely morning as well as a giggle getting ready for her to wizz of to the filming of TOWIE.

I usually mix and match products on Gemma according to the look she wants to achieve but we decided to do a bit of MAC loving today.

I apologise for the way I look in the picture. I was so busy taking the pic I didn't know where I was looking.

As you can see from her outfit, Gemma had a very glamourous event to go to so we didn't hold back on hair and makeup!

For her hair we decided on a Kim Kardashian-esque look with soft curls at the ends and swept away from the face volume on top. Just a lit bit more of a glamourous look for today. Don't even ask me how I did this look without any rollers, tongs, straightners or hairdryer. Just a backcombing brush and a can of hairspray. Gemma kept asking me how I was going to achieve it and all I kept saying was 'leave it to me!' It was so funny looking at Gemmas confused face in the mirror.

We wanted a glam look but still very captivating to Gemmas features.
All applied using a mixture of MAC and Estee Lauder Brushes...and the products are....

Foundation: MAC Studio Fix Fluid, NC20
Concealer: Estee Lauder Disappear Concealer, 02 Light

Silver Foxy Lady Locks!

When people think of grey/silver hair, they think of old grannies not celebrities and models walking down the runway. It is now trendy to look like a pensioner. I think this trend has grown massively over the recent months, being flaunted by lots of celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Pink, Pixie Geldof and Kelly Osborne. Certain celebrities have no problem being adventurous with their hair colour, and it looks good on them. Blue, yellow, pink, lilac, green, is an adventure!!!!

 The 'silver foxy lady' look made a big impact at the Madrid Fashion Week where designer Maria Barros showed her autumn/winter 2012-2013 collection. The models were wearing a gorgeous mix of jewel tones, subtle nudes with splashes of gold all topped off with shiny silver hair. Minimal make-up is worn to give the hair the ability to stand out. I don't know how all these women manage to pull off silver hair and still look fresh faced.

The question is... Do men find this Sexy???

I know we find it sexy on a  man...George Clooney, George Lamb and Ben Affleck!!! These men are definitely silver foxes!!!

How to achieve this look!!!

As a hairdresser I have done this colour service many times and have thorughly enjoyed it as it's different from the standard colours. For best results visit a professional to achieve the best tones. Your hair will need to be bleached white. It is very hard to achieve this look when you are naturally dark because it can leave the hair with a yellow tone when it is bleached. You CANNOT dye your hair silver directly from dark don't try it!!!
Once hair has been bleached white a grey/silver toner can be applied onto the hair which will lock in the colour, tone and shine. The hard part is to maintain the colour. It can fade very quickly so maintenance is key. Make sure you don't use shampoos and conditioners with any kind of citrus in it because it will strip the colour straight away. Your hair will also be dry so treatments are great to lock in colour and keep hair soft and shiny. A toner might need to be reapplied often, to keep the luscious silvery colour in the hair but wont be as costly as your first visit. Or you can just have the silver applied once, and sport all the different looks as the silver tones start to fade. This part is completely up to you.

I would advise to wear makeup if you decide to dye your hair silver as the tones in the colour can age you and make you look gaunt. Keep your skin tone fresh and maybe add some warmth to keep your hair and overall look funky, not distressed.
