Our Work

David O Malley

By | Celebrity, Fashion, Fashion Brands, Lisa Redmond, Our Work, Uncatagorized | No Comments

Very recently I had the pleasure of working on a fashion film for the Irish Designer, David O Malley for the launch of his ‘Entropy’ collection.
I was familiar with his designs already.  I’d seen the singer Young Wonder, wear some his designs at Electric Picnic in 2013 and more recently, RTE weather reporter, Jean Byrne wore one of his dresses at the VIP Style Awards.  So I jumped at the chance to be part of the fashion film.
He studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and was named ‘one of the ones to watch’ by Vogue Fashion Festival!
Taking inspiration from the style of the designs and a visit to the Design Centre in Dublin, where you will find his collection, I started to put together ideas for the make-up.

For shoots like this, there are always conversations beforehand about the concept or any themes for the overall style of the shoot.   My loose plan (I’m a bit of a planner) was graphic lines and monochrome type look. On the day, I used black and white liner, definite lines being the focus and I enhanced each of the models bone structure with contour and highlighting. On Georgia, the thick winged out black liner all over the lid really suited the geometric style of the clothes.  I think the white liner on all three of the models looks cool.  I love getting a chance to do high fashion make-up.
Here’s the film, I hope you like it!  Well done to everyone involved.

Look Back on 2013

Hey Lovelies! Happy New Year to everyone

I am so excited about the New Year and all the possibilities that lie ahead of us.I normally would set loads of goals and things I want to achieve around this time.  Just before I talk about the future though, I thought it might be nice to see what I have been up to over the year. I was reading an article about positivity and how we should celebrate our successes, I for one find this quite hard, I always criticize myself and focus on what I didn’t achieve rather than celebrating what I did achieve.  So this is a step to be less hard on myself!

So last year was a busy year!

London Fashion Week

I travelled alot, including a trip over the sea for London Fashion Week, where I got to see loads of shows Felder Felder, Sass & Bide and more. I was back to London shortly after for the UK & Ireland Beauty Professional of the year. I was disappointed that I didn’t win as I really put my heart into it. However I entered again and made the finals again, so there is still hope. I was asked to judge the Beauty Professional London Makeup Competition alongside two esteemed makeup artists, Gary Cockerel and Paul Merchant, you can read more about that experience here. I was in Marbella for shoot with Cocoa Brown Tan who have had a meteoric rise to fame since. Not surprising as the tan is fantastic and is brought to you by the lovely Marissa Carter!

I also got to travel to the South of France for Maud’s Wedding from Maud in Cahoots, which was one of the most romantic weddings I have ever been to. Talking about weddings, I got to share in the joy of over sixty wedding days, making brides and their wedding parties look and feel like a million dollars. I also got the opportunity to instil confidence ala Gok Wan at the Secret Boudoir, where I did the hair and make-up for almost one hundred and fifty ladies this year.

I also worked with many great fashion brands throughout the year including Adidas, Aria Clothing and Coldlilies to name a few. I also represented many beauty brands, including  Buff Makeup, Butter London Makeup, Beauty Matters and National Beauty.  Doing shots, editorials, tutorials and ambassadorship.

Writing played a big part in my year, the blog grew from strength to strength. I contributed to U Magazine, Stellar, Your Nails Magazine, VIP Magazine as well as a few Newspapers. As always I worked on a few tv shows throughout the year including Something About St. Patrick, Xpose, Next Years News. However this year was a time of big change as I stepped out from behind the camera and actually made some appearances myself.  (Well that is if you don’t include the time that I was in the blooper reel for The Panel, I came out to powder Craig Doyle and he fell of his chair, was very funny!) I appeared on Xpose a few times and also the Today Show. The Today Show was really nerve wrecking as it had to be live and I was working with kids! Of course one of the kids Conor decided on air he didn’t want to have his facepainted and teetered precariously on the edge of having a complete melt down. As the saying goes, no kids or animals 😉

It has been a great year and it is only when I put finger to keyboard (the modern day pen to paper) that I realised how busy I was. I think because I love every minute of my job sometimes I don’t feel like I am working! This year I hope to do much of the same. I would like to do more TV appearances, writing, brand representation and of course make-up! I would also like to work at London Fashion Week. I am booked on something else this coming season, but am aiming to make it happen in September! So if you know anyone looking for someone pass on my name please 😉

What about you? I would love to hear what you have achieved this year. Is there anything in particular you are proud of? What would you like to achieve this year?

Happy New Year! Let’s make this a good one.

Lots of love,

Wedding Wednesday: The Natural Bride

By | Real Brides, Uncatagorized, Weddings | No Comments

Natural Bridal Makeup

 

Hello Lovelies,

The one request that 95% of my brides have when we do a trial is ‘I want to look natural’. This description is completely different to everybody as one persons natural is another persons nightmare. To ensure that we are singing off the same hymn sheet I’ll usually ask a number of questions to get a feel for the type of person they are and what is natural to them. This week’s bride is a perfect example of a really light bridal makeup.

Today’s bride is the very beautiful Claire. Claire wanted a really really simple look as she wouldn’t wear much makeup on a daily basis and as all brides do, wanted to feel comfortable and herself on her wedding day.

As you can see Claire is a stunning girl anyway so I did extremely light eyes with browns to accentuate the colour of her own. Then I added  a few single lashes,with some light highlighting and contouring and a pink stained lip to finish it off.

This is quite a daring look for those who would be used to heavier makeup application but is very effective and a stunning look for those of you who are willing to try! 🙂

Would you try this for your wedding day?

Lots of

Love

fashion photo shoot headshots

Hi Ladies,

Here’s some shots from a recent photo shoot I did with Ariana for their Spring Summer 2014 look book.

The main theme throughout was a fresh and light  look –  in keeping with their bright Srping/Summer line.

You can see above that I also did a slightly darker brown and gold smoky eye for a more evening feel.

Fresh spring makeup

There were some really beautiful shots on the day so I’ll let you know when they’re ready to share with you!
