I popped along to Pro Beauty 2012 this afternoon at ExCel London primarily to meet up with fellow ‘tog Mark “Goose” Sayer. He’d made the four hour trip down south from Selby, North Yorkshire to work with the team on the Nouveau Beauty Group stand. They were there to promote the new line of eye lashes by Amy Childs. I was also looking for inspiration for some more off the wall make-up for studio shoots. While talking to Mark I spotted a lady with very shiny pink lips, see the fist of the shots below. While Mark did some more press shots with Amy I went for a wonder finding the lady in the second image below having a lip makeover. Applied to the lips and soaked off the paper with water they’re very much like the transfers so popular with children, only in much more vivid colours! These “lip wraps” were from trendynailwraps.co.uk

Wandering around the show I spotted a number of entries from a make-up competition ran that afternoon. Unfortunately I’d not met the MUA behind the tin can hair curlers. The brilliant make-up in the shots below was done by Jennifer Lenard. The make-up in the opening image at the top of the page is by Rebacca Marks. A massive thanks to the big guy Mr Sayer for being my human light stand for the full length shot. Make-up artists with air-brush skills to apply the stuff? You ladies are cooking on gas! Love love love the results!!
