Hair and Make-up Team – Here Comes Hell

Friday 19th January 2018 – Monday 29th January 2018

Charlie and I were lucky enough to be cast as the Hair and Make-up Team for a black and white, 1930’s based horror film.

We arrived at the lakeside lodges and met the cast and crew on the Friday Night and the next day it was a 5am alarm ready to do the hair and make-up of the cast.

I did the Hair and Make-up for the girls, Jess Webber and Margaret Clunie.

Whilst Charlie had the task of hair and make-up for the boys ; Tim Renouf, Charlie Robb & Tom Bailey (Taz) and Maureen.

Shortly after 8am we arrived on location… Revesby Abbey.

This location is a privately owned, beautiful hidden gem in a state of disrepair and is slowly being renovated by the family who own it. It is the perfect location for a horror film.

My daily routine was to wake up, get ready then set up in the kitchen ready for 6am when the girls would come to hair and make up. I’d remove their pincurls which were prepared the night before and style them out and grip and spray the hair into their necessary hairstyles.
Then makeup would begin for Jess it would be
L’oreal Infallible Primer then Infallible Foundation – Porcelain
MUA contour – cheekbones, jaw and temples/forehead
L’oreal Blush
Laroc Eyeshadow palette we’d use medium browns in the crease
Sleek Brow Kit would then be used to fill in her natural brows
Collection 2000 Waterproof Mascara would be coated on the top and bottom lashes
Sleek Red Lipstick would be applied last

For the last few days of filming I also had to build a bruise with the bruised willis palette.

Margaret’s Routine was different as she required heavier makeup and more complex hair for her role
L’oreal Infallible Primer then Infallible Foundation – Porcelain
MUA contour – cheekbones and temples/forehead
L’oreal Blush
Laroc Eyeshadow palette we’d use dark browns in the crease
Nyx Epic Liner – winged liner
Natural False Lashes applied with Duo Glue
Sleek Brow Kit would then be used to fill in her natural brows
Collection 2000 Waterproof Mascara would be coated on the top and bottom lashes
Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry Lipstick

This was later in filming when her hair didn’t need to be pinned to the side anymore

For One Day Margaretwas transformed into a possessed version of her character so heavier makeup was used to sculpt her face and of course fake blood was needed.

With the early starts and the late nights prepping hair we had to sleep when we could, so we had our walkie talkie to be called to set for checks but would take power naps when we could in the green room and try to keep warm.

The hours were long but so rewarding to get to see our work on the rush’s at then end of the day. The food was incredible thanks team!

I honestly had one of the best 10 nights of my life it was hilarious but returning home and getting a nice hot bath was lush!

Here is Charlie and I’s final wrap picture ❤

We had one day off to rest up before we returned to college classes.

Thank you to all the Here Comes Hell Cast & Crew for making my first Film Set Experience so positive and amazing. I cannot wait for the premiere.

Day 1, Make, Manage & Master Money Event – Disruptive Entrepreneur Review

6:30AM – Bev, of MimiandBe.com picks me up.

Bright eyed and bushy tailed on the road to Peterborough we go, chatting, singing and being excited about the event to come.

Bev has been mentally preparing me for this event for months, I’m not going to pretend I even knew (until today) who Rob Moore is and I’ve never read his books or listened to his podcasts.

We arrived at the training suite and it was super busy pushing 250 people at a guess and the first speaker was Raymond who gave us a rundown of what to expect over the weekend and introduced us to the concept of money.

We spot Rob Moore slide slyly into the room and Bev had a slight starstruck moment which is a first for her as she’s met famous film stars on movie sets. I have to admit he is a good looking chap. After he cringes at his own video he gets up on stage and begins teaching us about Leverage and other pro tips for business.  He also gives us the professional insight into podcasting. It is refreshing how Rob is so down to earth, after years of watching Tony Robbins’ over the top Americanised approach.

We’re given a speedy lunch break and I began to feel seriously tired after being up since 5am but we hop straight back into a Social Media talk by Paul O’Mahony. Paul was giving us the low down on the best ways to use social media for business and how to make money from it on each platform.

Raymond enters stage left; discusses Angel Finance and how to get the investment needed and the process of acquiring it for business ventures. He also covered more of his background and family life whilst cracking jokes along the way.

Rob Moore returns to the stage for a Q&A session after changing his t-shirt. And spends about an hour answering questions from the audience.

I can honestly say Day 1 was amazing and I didn’t get bored like I expected too. Rob Moore and his team really encouraged the motivation I already have and I feel excited about tomorrow.

As I write this Bev and I are enjoying a bottle of wine in the hotel bar and speaking about today’s events and future plans.

I wasn’t actually doing Dry January 🥂

If today is anything to go by this event is worth every penny. (I was Bev’s Free +1)

Day 2 review coming soon 💋

Marc Jacobs Highliner Review

inf_1515608405617.jpg

I was lucky enough to qualify for the Marc Jacobs Beauty VoxBox from Influenster and John Lewis and I was not disappointed.

This was the first Voxbox I qualified for and I felt like a child when the box arrived.

I received 2 shades, (Pop)ular & Over(night).

(Pop)ular is a dark pink shade which matches my current hair very well! The packaging is sleek and luxurious and the pencils are slim, with a twist design so no need to hunt for the sharpener! (Hallelujah). The formula is really creamy, easy to apply and doesn’t smear or run, I rubbed my eyes, sweated at the gym and it survived it all!

My ultimate favourite eyeliner has now changed to the Over(night) shade. A deep blue with the same creamy texture and is also gym proof. I now prefer this to black liner and it feels so nice!

IMG_20180110_180250_397

With 12 shades to choose from, easy application, luxury formula and packaging they are definitely worth £20 each!

They are a new kit staple cannot wait to use them more and collect more shades 💋
