Last Wednesday morning I posted images of a recent red carpet make-up lookI'd done for actress Gemma Arterton and described the make up as a 'No Make-up' kind of look. I asked in the post if anyone would like to see a tutorial on this type of look (which is something of a signature look for me) and was overwhelmed with the response. So many people requested a tutorial... I had to get straight on it!!
I've done this look for hundreds of shoots for the worlds glossiest mags like Vogue, Glamour etc. I've also done it for countless celebrities for red carpet, movie press junkets and shoots. As I say in the video you can go as far as you like with it but always remember the tones have to work with your natural skin tones so nothing clashy and NEVER use glossy or overly shimmery textures as these do not occur naturally in the skin in real life so will always look artificial. Save the all over shimmer and gloss for a shimmery summer look. I left the edit long as there were so many tips! I did ask on FB yesterday if viewers would prefer a shorter edit and over 350 of my make-up bunnies commented instantly to say absolutely NOooo! I use the same techniques in the video I use for the A-listers ; )
