Madonna - Rain

There are so many brilliant Madonna looks to choose from but the first one that I have chosen to try to recreate is the look from 'Rain'. What interests me about this look is the mix of 1930s and 1990s influences. The eyebrows are high and rounded and the blending through the socket is really defined.
Madonna has very high brows and in all honestly I cannot be sure that her brows we blocked out but I needed to block mine to create space for the higher socket, I hope that it is interesting to anyone studying make-up.
The glue used is available from Guru

Blog of the week - Photoshop disasters

We love the Photoshop disasters blog. I have picked just a few personal highlights. As truly beautiful as the models are the photoshopping is awful and sometimes just incredibly weird. Try posing your arm similar to the last shot.... it's impossible!

Blog of the week - Backyard Bill

This a new feature for us. I was introduced to this awesome blog by a very good friend of mine who has been featured on it (Luke Langsdale) and I really wanted to share it with you. This blog reminds me to be individual and not to worry to much about what other people do/say/wear, for it is the individuality that I find the most interesting in people.

The blog is 

London born Professional photographer and model William Gentle started his blog 3 years ago. He says, "I've been living in New York for 3 years and it's coming up 3 years since I started Backyard Bill, 
it's called Backyard Bill because I started shooting my friends in my back garden and the blog soon grew out of that.
Basically, I document people I find stylish, people on the street, working in a cafe or bar anyone who's looks inspire me."
