Holidaze – The Glitz

It’s a favorite of mine, jewel tones. I find the colours in nature are the most inspiring. Some sparkle and an intense 80s inspired Holidaze.

The Pat McGrath palettes are like a Ferrari, why keep them in the garage and just admire them? I wanted to challenge myself to find their full potential(s). But these shimmering/glitter shades in the Subversive palette are really unique.

I loved the feline quality of her eyes and energy.  I’m pushing myself out of pretty makeup, to be more theatrical. I’m very driven by colour,  But I wanted to avoid blending the colours, to keep them pure and vibrant, to get that jewel effect. My other challenge was making the skin more full coverage and editing it more in Photoshop, because the looks are more “unreal”, the skin had to follow.

Sweet Charlotte

Charlotte Tilbury created the now iconic Tilbury smoky by perfecting the bombshell look of the late Seventies and early Eighties, and making it utterly modern! While her new makeup line hasn’t made it to the Montreal Holt Renfrew, yet… I managed to find in my makeup kit some great products to get your Tilbury face on, without breaking the bank. Gorgeous!
