The one where I get to play as MUA!


Oh it's been a busy couple of weekends for little ole me but it's been a blast! I had the great opportunity of helping out my friend Narelle with her zombie movie! Now we all know I'm used to handling a camera or giving the orders in this kind of thing but this time I was set a different task: Makeup!


Let me tell you it's been a long time since I've done anything zombie related (6 years in fact) so I jumped at the chance to muck in and try something different. The twist of the whole thing of course is that it's not just a zombie movie, it's a zombie movie for kids! Starring all of Narelle's students from her drama school. 

So me and my 3 fellow MUAs (don't worry I'm not going to declare myself a professional just yet) got stuck in to our cast of 75 for each of the 3 days of production. That's about 60 kids and 15 adults by the way. Every day! Man I'm tired! But it was great craic and below you will see, my kit, some of my work on the adults and some snaps I took of everyone in action. Hope you enjoy and keep an eye out for Zombie Formal Queen in next years Oscars short film category ;)

My kit not including my Crown Face brushes
Loved playing with my Kryolan liquid latex. The bruise wheel was great too just wish we got to keep it :(
My favourite Make Up Forever foundation and an alcohol palette (there was lots of cooing over this but alas we didn't get to keep it either)
Some nice gooey blood kindly donated by Bex at Bexberry.com
My Dad!! Getting nice and Zombified. 
Toy tractors and fake blood. What else would you expect?
My first dead person. We decided to go with more greys in the end as it is a PG film after all!
Action shot!
The Queen herself! I had the pleasure of doing her non Zombie make up and of course reached for my old faithful Naked palette!
A few mid Zombifying shots 


And then the finished results!



Big Thanks to Narelle at Drama For Kids and Larry at Lamb Films for having me! Can't wait to work with them again!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…

Happy Faeriwood Birthday Giveaway!

This week marks the 3rd anniversary of our re-launch as Faeriwood.com from our old life as Bex's Fashion Tips. It seems like an absolute lifetime since we made the switch and so much has changed since then in both Michelle and my lives.
