Lisa Redmond joins Emma Farrell Makeup Creative! And Discussion on her Favourite Artist Alex Box

By | Alex Box, illamasqua, Lisa Redmond, The Team | No Comments

Lisa Redmond Emma Farrell Makeup CreativeHey everyone,

So this is my first official blog post as part of the Emma Farrell Makeup Creative Team. How exciting! In fact, my first blog post ever. Things are heating up at Emma Farrell HQ and the three of us are really excited about working together. I may possibly be the serious one of the three but I am fun….honestly. Anyway, I am looking forward to sharing my experiences, thoughts or general ramblings with you.
The exercise of putting this blog together got me thinking as to how I have arrived at this point, so I thought this would be a good place to start as it features one of my Makeup Artist idols, Alex Box. In 2011 on a regular Sunday, off I went to the local newsagents and bought The Sunday Times newspaper. There are some really cool supplement magazines in the Sunday edition; one of which is the Style magazine. On this day, the cover had an image that captured my attention and imagination immediately. This is the day that started my pursuit of studying makeup. Granted, I had been thinking about it as something I’d like to do already, so perhaps I was already in tune with anything makeup. I had tried lots of things over the years none of which seemed to fit…see there I go, rambling! Ok, focus. The cover was a model wearing a makeup creation by Alex Box. Here it is, unfortunately I was unable to find out the names of the rest of the team, what an amazing job they did, I would love to know who they were. Read More

Professional Make-up Kit Mascaras, Eyeliners and other products for eyes

So a couple of years ago I had started to do a “What’s in my Kit” series, but got distracted by something sparkly and never finished it. Needless to say my kit has grown substantially since then, so I guess I should probably start again. So I was thinking I would finish off where I left off and then do a current post about the ones that I had already done. Not sure if that makes any sense!

Anyway, here is goes. This is one of my make-up bags dedicated to EYES! There are three in total. I currently use a Zuca Bag and have done so for years. I love the way that it is so easy to roll around. Mine is extremely heavy though because I have so many products, so I have decanted alot of products to try and reduce the weight. More on that later….

I know I have alot of mascaras right? I am kinda on the search for the holy grail of mascaras and have been trying nearly every single one on the market. I still feel like there could be a better one out there. Any suggestions do let me know.

So what do you have in your kit? Is it similar? I would love to hear from you.

Lots of Love,
