It’s been crazy busy the last month with makeup! Here’s a photo of me using Mac Cosmetics Natural Skin Finish in ‘Medium Deep” on Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 for his new clothing label!

Anonymous asked: Hi katie, i love your work! I was wondering which course did you do at AOFM? I really want to star a career as a make-up artist, but there are so many courses out there, but aofm looks incredible with the amount of support they give you and the fact you get so many opportunities if you work hard! Thanks in advance xx

Hello! Thank you so much, it really boosts my confidence to hear that!! 
I did the total pro course at AOFM which covers pretty much everything including airbrushing, nails and hair but they are also adding on an FX course which I would strongly advise to do also as it boosts your skills and makes you more employable.
Their aftercare is brilliant and has given me the chance to work on 2 London Fashion Weeks and I’ve since just been first assistant on a show this season without their backing so in terms of aftercare they are certainly the best. Let me know which one you decide to do and I’d love to see how you get on and exchange some tips and tricks too! Feel free to email me and I can tell you a little more about my own experience starting a career in makeup artistry and maybe offer some advice or bring you along to a shoot to get a feel for the work :)

One of the shots that I mentioned in my New Year New Life post, the shoot where I doubted myself so badly only to love the images so much. 

I plan on creating a face chart of this look and recreating it on another shoot with a more beauty perspective. 

Here the main focus was the deep purple lip, which I made using Macs clear lipglass and Macs Eyeshadow in Beauty Marked… I didn’t quite expect to be creating such an intense lip so thinking on my feet, I crushed some of the shadow up and mixed it in with the gloss…and it created the most beautiful shade of violet with flecks of blueish sparkles, it just popped with the tones of the dress. 

The eyes were bronzed and beautiful, slightly contoured and swept with Macs eye shadows in Wedge, Amber Lights and Honeylust.

Okay okay okay okay.

I’ve got so much to write about, if you follow what I do, you’ll know that I usually blog after each photoshoot or fashion show etc giving a description of the look, products used and how to achieve said look. Alas, I have been very busy with other aspects of my social networking… (I bring you… www.katiearabellamakeup.co.uk)

So, the intention of this post is to promise myself that by the end of next week I will have updated my dear Tumblr on the following:

London Fashion Week - Qasimi Homme

Tom Barnes final images with Jorja + tutorial on how to achieve the lip

Brief few words on the BSB shoot with Tom Barnes 

New products!!! Including Lime Crime, Smashbox primer, eye liners, mascaras, concealer the whole lot!

One of the final images from one of my favourite shoots this year.
Being able to say that I love what I do at the age of 20 is such an amazing feeling for me, and being able to do that with great friends too means the world.

I love the composition of this photograph, it sparks so many stories from the layout, the tone and the positioning. The makeup and hair was simple and glowing with natural tones and sculpted cheeks.
