Get Glam Diet Coke/Benefit Competition
Its been sooo long since I’ve been on to update my website, and blog… I have been kept busy with lots of beautiful brides and I’m so excited to tell you all about the Get Glam Diet Coke/Benefit Competition I entered in March of this year. It was a competition open to all Ireland and broken up into 3 sections; Bridal, Editorial and Creative. To say it was a long day from start to finish is a huge understatement but yet again totally worth the hard work, patience and general lack of food!
The Bridal section entailed completing a make up in front of the judging panel and audience within an hour, the entire design of make up coherent to the styling and hair of the model created by the make up artist his/herself. I took my inspiration from the 1950s with the trademark flick and put my own twist on it. I incorporated corals and subtle brown/orange tones into the eyes, cheeks and lips to give an effortless summer glow and gave the skin a flawless finish to set the whole look off. Thankfully the judges got my twist on a classic and I walked away with 1st place; Best Bridal 2012.
Editorial and Creative followed the same rules, prepare your model off stage and present them collectively with the rest of the competition. I took Spring Summers inspiration with my editorial make up, creating a Sports Luxe inspired make up. Creatively I based my inspiration more on colour, with blue prevailing. Associating blue with the ocean and it also being a huge trend for Spring Summer 11/12 I tried to create a beautiful ocean inspired make up. Again I was delighted with my placings in both categories; 2nd place respectively. All in all a fantastic day of make up!
Hopefully it’ll not be as long next time
