Hancock turns into a Plenderleith!

Hi guys,

It has been an extremely long time since I wrote my last blog.  I have lots of catching up to do!

I am going to start with Joanna and her amazing family!!  Joanna lives in Australia with the core of her family being here in the GTA.

Her and her now husband Mark got married at the gorgeous Deer Creek Golf Course in Ajax.  This is a gorgeous venue if you guys have not seen it make sure to click the link and check it out!

Everyone got ready at their parents house in Port Perry and I had a blast doing the make up for them.  I was honoured to finally meet Joanna as her sister has been a big part of my life for the past few years.

This English family definitely knows how to have a good time and I had many laughs while hanging out with them and Joanna was kind enough to bring me back a dairy milk vegemite chocolate bar…really it wasn’t as bad as i thought it was going to be!

 

The ladies were all airbrushed and their make up was fairly natural.  Their hair was done by Christina LeBlanc who now owns her own salon called the Hairitage House  click the link to go to her facebook page.

She said YES!

Hey Everyone,

Two weekends ago I got to meet up with the lovely Katy and meet her fiance Jason.   They were doing their engagement shoot so I met Katy at Mikes hair salon in Pickering Village and we did her trial run for her wedding :)! 
Katy’s make up was Very natural for the shoot; it was airbrushed (as usual with me) and we used MAC soft and gentle in the inner corner of her eye as well as under her brow bone, MAC woodwinked (love this colour) and used expresso on the outer corner of her eye. 

It was a great morning and I had a blast getting to know Katy better and can not wait till her special day!!

Asian Eyes

Hey guys,

So not a blog I typically write but thought since I have seen and heard horror stories of people doing make up on Asian eyes I thought I would write what I typically would do for Asian eyes. First of all I want to start of saying that there are NO RULES when you’re doing make up, experiment and have fun while you’re doing it!!!  You will see the things that work and don’t work!

Asian eyes are stunning and I LOVE doing make up on them; however they can be tricky if as for some reason peoples first thought is to make them have a crease.  Yes sometimes you can make them have the illusion of a crease with it looking good but doing a full on crease where it would be RARELY looks nice.

Usually if I want to create well defined eyes I have at least three colours to play with: a light shade a medium shade and a dark shade.  The medium shade would be placed all over the lid, the darkest shade should be placed at the lash line and smudged/blended up to the middle of your lid, the lightest shade (I usually use one with a shine) should be placed on the brow bone (right under the eyebrow) to meet the medium shade creating a shadow gradient. To open your eyes and make them pop put the lighter shade on the inside corner of the eye as well. Make sure you blend the colours so that there is not a solid line to when the colours stop and start.   You will want a little more definition take a eyeliner and line your top lid (I recommend using a liquid or gel liner my favourite are MAC boot black, MAC fluidline and Stila’s smudge pot). People say do not line under asian eyes however if you have smaller eyes and want to open them put a white or nude tone on your lower waterline this will open up the eyes even more and if you have bigger eyes and you want them more dramatic why not put some black on your waterline?  Always curl your lashes before applying mascara, one of my favourite eyelash curlers is model in a bottle’s it works amazing and it is not a huge metal curler that looks like it’s going to eat your eye haha; its cute and dainty and gets the job done!!

Hope this helps some people out 🙂
