I went to see the film Maleficent this week.  I don’t normally go for Disney films. I think it was the images of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent that made me want to see it. She was one of the Executive Producers on the film.

Visually, I really liked it! The special effects, the forest, the floating horse fish and the three funny little pixies(or maybe they are fairies?) the threatening overgrown vines, Maleficent’s magnificent wings(though these were not in the original character),great! Read More

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.

Viviscal Hair Confessions

viviscal hair confessions infographic

About  six months ago Viviscal® launched ‘Hair Confessions’, the worlds largest hair survey.  6,900 people participated, that’s alot. Last week, Viviscal® had an event hosted by Maia Dunphy and a panel consisting of Pippa O’Connor, Psychotherapist Anne Colgan and Ciaran Nevin Celebrity Hairstylist.

This event was all about the survey findings.  There is no doubt, people value their hair and having it look strong and healthy makes them feel good and not having it makes them feel the opposite.  In men, particularly, I think having a good head of hair can be linked to the perception of being viril and in women feeling attractive and confident.  84% “said that when their hair looks good they’re more likely to go after what they want, make an impression or be social” with 90% saying they’d gone for days or even a week, shock horror, without washing their hair.  I always felt washing my hair every day was unnecessary,  I think I was a little outnumbered at this part of the discussion. Where I felt like everyone else, was around the chat about changing your hair at different stages in your life to reflect how you feel.  Alot of feelings going on here!   I went through a period a few years ago when my own hair grew thinner, there are lots of reasons why this can happen and I think it’s a good idea to speak to your doctor if this happens.  It can be stressful and most definitely affect how you feel about your appearance, in both men and women.

I had a look at the survey, which can be completed here at http://viviscalhairconfessions.com/questionnaire

Viviscal® is an Irish company doing very well worldwide.   For those of you who haven’t heard of Viviscal®, it’s a supplement to help with hair loss and thinning.  We were kindly given a month’s supply of the supplement and some of the other products to try.  I believe would need to be taking the supplement for at least six months before you would see results and then you need to continue taking it to maintain the results.  A months supply is €49.95, three months, €119.96 and six months €199.95

Something really great coming from the survey is that €1 from every Irish survey completed is being donated to the Mia Hair Restoration Charitable trust, the trust provides counseling for children and young people who have suffered with hair loss.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried any hair loss or thinning hair products?

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
