So it’s the first week of Jan and things in my world of makeup are already very busy. I’ve had a few meetings for this upcoming Feb’s London Fashion Week- so watch this space for future makeup tips hot off the catwalks. I’ve also spent this week with one of my most lovely clients- the pint sized powerhouse- Tracy Anderson. You may have heard the buzz about her- she is Madonnas and Gwyneth Paltrows personal trainer and she has been in London promoting her amazing new fitness DVD
I first met Tracy back in Sept, I was doing her makeup for a photoshoot with her and Gwyneth Paltrow for US magazine- Gotham. Tracy spends a lot of time traveling which can sometimes take a toll her complexion- so I paid extra attention to her skin to make sure it was looking its best for the shoot.. she was super happy with the results; so much so that she requested me back for more work ( the ultimate compliment to any makeup artist!)
To achieve this flawless photographic look I applied- Benefits Some Kind of Gorgeous first on the skin after her moisturiser- this is a tinted moisturiser mixed with thier trademark DR Feelgood primer- a 2 in one, I find it gives a gental even tone to the skin and makes the skin feel silky smooth- Next using a foundation brush and painting the skin in an up and down movement, I applied MAC Studio tech- a cream to powder foundation, for a look that was flawless. To finish, I dusted a touch of translucent powder. What I love about Tracy is that she turned me onto one of her favourite products- she uses Fresh- compact powder, which I hadnt tried before. IT has a touch of sheen and isnt cakey or heavy- and I am always on the look out for whats new and good, a definate new staple to my makeup kit.
If you want to re-create Tracy’s look, make sure you include these items – nude lip pencil, peachy sheer lip gloss, bronzer, a touch of shimmer highligher and a few individaul lashes to the outter corner of the eye- think a natural blonde bomshell, a more toned down, subtle Pamila Anderson or Bridget Bardo.
