SUPER SIZE MY EYES!

13 Oct

The Bookers Blog is back………..been out of action for a while!
Hope you had a great summer, I cant believe how fast time is flying by……but its always a good time for beauty tips!

Back today with some great advice from Bareface Makeup Artist Kat Sumners on how to make your EYES LOOK BIGGER ……………I know I need these tips!

Get your lashes on!

Ok, here goes………let me know what you think by leaving a comment on this post.

The eyes are the most expressive feature on your face, so we should make the most of them. Makeup can make the eyes look a lot bigger. Some of the best ways to make your eyes look larger include some of the following makeup tricks:

Curl Your Lashes
Using a lash curler on your upper lashes can work wonders.  Curled lashes instantly open up the eyes, making them appear bigger. A little secret I have been doing for years on shoots is heating your stainless steel lash curler with your blow dryer before applying to the lashes.  The result is amazing!

Lash extensions
False eyelashes can even further open up your eyes and make them appear larger.

Mascara
For a dramatic look, apply mascara only to the upper lashes. To make eyes seem wider, apply to the bottom too.

Eye Shadow
Eye shadow can significantly enhance the appearance of your eyes. The key to big eyes is keeping your eye shadow palette light. This is because dark colours make features recede, but light colors bring them forward.

Eyeliner
Apply beige eyeliner to the inner lower rims of the eyes (Personally, I think white eyeliner looks too harsh). This is an instant eye opener. Avoid using black eyeliner altogether near the eyes because it will only make your eyes appear smaller.  If you have to use a darker eyeliner, opt for dark brown or grey and blend.

Eyebrows
Framing the face is a necessary step in making the eyes look larger. If eyebrows are left bushy and overgrown, the entire eye area looks smaller.

Brow Highlighter
Apply this on the lower bone of your eyebrows, they are a highlight to open up your eyes.

Eye Drops
Reduce the redness in your eyes. Clear, white eyes make you look fresh, awake and wide-eyed.

Get Enough Sleep
Puffy eyes are small eyes!  So make sure you get enough sleep to reduce the bags under your eyes. This is key if you are on a shoot the next day! Make sure you get enough sleep so you arrive on set looking fresh.

Thanks KAT!

Right, am off to get myself some brow highlighter…..Would go with the more sleep option, but I think I actually overslept last night and this has also given me the small eyed look!

The Notorious M.O ……

22 Apr

Hello, my name is Mo.

 Its not everyday that an Iguana gets more camera time than Angelina Jolie!

Meet Mo……He is a friendly green iguana who lives with Bareface Stylist Ant Kidd

Mo has recently shot a TV Documentary about Dinosaurs, shooting on the Beach in Abu Dhabi…….He received rave reviews on his performance and beahviour on set. Quite simply, he is a pleasure to work with. There were no Diva moments!

We caught up with Mo after his shoot, see below a short Q&A from his interview:
Q: Hello Mo, How old are you?
A: Hello, I am 2 years old.

Q: How did you get into Acting?
A: Well, thats a good question, I first discovered that I had a certain edge when I was just 8 months old. I attended a casting for a bollywood music video, and I got the part. It was a shock at first as it was my first casting, however, from that moment on I knew that acting was the career for me.

Mo went on to play the part of  ‘abandoned pet’ in the middle of the desert. He was an immediate success.
Q: What is your favourite thing about being a performer?
A: I just love being in the public eye. As you can see from the pictures I am  a natural on camera. The money does also help. With my first pay cheque I bought myself a fancy new home.
Q: What is your daily beauty regime?
A: I keep it simple. All I do is sunbathe for 9-10 hours a day to keep my colour fresh. I follow a strict healthy diet of mixed salad.  In my spare time, I like to hang out with Ant Kidd and his shoulder is my perfect resting place.
