A afternoon with Impact Modelling School

Hello my lovely readers :D
A few weeks ago now I spent the afternoon at the wonderful Impact modelling school where I did hair as part of the angel face hair and make up team for the beautiful models that attended.

The school teaches wannabe Cornish models some of the basics of the profession, for them to get a taste of what the real life of a model is all about.

They learn things about castings, how to pose, run way walking and commercial acting and then in the afternoon get there hair and make up done and take part in a photo shoot for some pictures to put in their portfolio.

I am a part of a team who do hair and make up for events and we were asked to take part in this after our recent involvement in Miss Cornwall. In the past the team has taken part in a number of events including Miss Cornwall, Miss London, London Fashion week and Cat Walks in Soho for Chinese new years.

With Myself and Lisa Vercoe on Hair and Julie Weiczorek and Penny Pascoe on make up we all had a fanatasic afternoon which revealed some great work from the models themselves.

Make Up Photoshoot

Saturday finally arrived and all our plans for our model make up shoot finally came together.
With the very talented Kevin Hicks behind the Camera lens and the beautiful Zoe Hill in front of it I think we managed to achieve some great photos.

To achieve the look I started with Mac Pro Long wear foundation to get a good coverage. I also used Mac concealer to hide any blemish's and get rid of darkness under the eyes.

A light dusting of Angel Face Mineral finishing powder to set and seal (this product is great for photography work as unlike many mineral products it reduces shine rather than adding to it)
I started with browns and golds from the smash box pallet Full Exposure

 I used Angel Face White witch on the inner corners of the eye to open and brighten them and I applied cluster lashes to the outer corners of the eye.
Illamasqua Brow gel to give a defined but soft look.
Finishing with Bronzer, setting powder from Mac and a Nude lip liner and gloss from Younique

I then strengthened the look of the eyes by adding the black from the full exposure pallet and a thicker denser line of Illimasqua's Gel Liner in infinity. I also added more cluster lashes to add to the definition of the eyes. Slightly stronger bronzer and blusher and a refresh of the nude lips.
