So big big News!!! Well done Ellie!!! Since Jools Holland i have seen a lot of Miss Goulding its an absolute treat of a job I get to listen to her singing away - sometimes even when I'm on the toilet which sounds so uncool but IS marvelous all the same.. These pictures were taken at Ellies Cargo gig where she blew everyone away and I was wearing the most hideous yellow tights and looked like a boy! ooo and that's Iza from Florence and the Machine that were sitting on, wearing my Brians!!
So... where to start on this one this was a Wearing and Peretz affair (hair and make up) Directed by Ben Taylor produced by the Ryderman for Between the Eyes.
So make up wise we went for cyborg-geisha- dolls which isn't a term but I cant think of any other way to describe it.
Strobe, Face and body, sky blue pigment around the eyes, tangerine blush as highlighter ( inner eye and cheekbones) 'Simply Scarlett' blush on the cheeks and temples blended on to the forehead with the tangerine finished with triple fusion to catch the light, 'Black Trak' Fluid line liner that breaks into two at the flick on the top , Bouffard and Pazzery 'Crystal black lashes' on the top and single flares all along the bottom, 'Redd' lip liner and 'Lustering' mixed with 'Lady Danger' painted on the lips finished off with lashings of 'Lip Glass' and white contact lenses All products unless otherwise detailed are from MAC.

So as much as Transport for London tried to prevent me and my class from making it into the college against all odds we did. Siobhan having been given the flu jab which then gave her the flu made a wellcome return to the classroom and made sure everyone was well fed. Debs was off her crutches, Kawlsey laughed ALOT, Diana rocked a new street style, Regina and Elaine somehow managed to get in earlier than the rest of us, Haley was ever so well but Danielle sadly had more bad luck and lost her whole kit on the 94 bus.... should anyone find it! - but as Danielle does she still remained sunny throughout. As the miserable weather battered the windows once we had the heaters on we had rather a lovely day.
So, blocking out eyebrows can be a rather disappointing affair its quite tricky and even if it goes well there is that moment when it just looks wrong or the person your doing it on just looks ill. We had a mixed bag of results but don't worry ladies after your shoots this week I'm going to put you through it all over again!!!
Diana kindly let me use her camera so here are a couple of shots of my demonstration on the lovely Luisa.
I blocked out the brows with morticians wax and sealor used Full Coverage mixed with strobe all over the face, 'Steel Blue' pigment on the eyes highlighted with 'Melon' pigment, 'Blu peep' and' blacktrak' fluid line for the liner finished with a set of false lashes. The lips were lined with Nightmoth lip pencil and filled with 'Film Noir' and 'Fresh Morocco' with lashings of 'lipglass'. All MAC products.

Keeping it real with Tinchy Stryder and the smooth Taoi Cruz, lots of lovely ladies, some impressive pole work, long legs, a couple of dobermans and tatoos! Directed by the slick Emil Nava, me, Peretz and Luisa had a ball on this crisp video! Luisa made an unexpected HD cameo appearance as Taoi's love interest, I literally picked her up and put her on a box and there we have it. Enjoy!

Gorgeous Goulding on Jools Holland Show..... Love Love Love working with Ellie she is super cute!! She has the most amazing milky skin and round deep brown eyes framed with the longest lower lashes and 30s brows a pouty Clara bow mouth and hair like Goldie Hawn in my favoutrite film ever 'Shampoo' !
You're probably familiar with 'Under the Sheets' so check out 'Guns and Horses' she writes the most beautiful clever songs .. I also got to see Wild Beasts which almost made up for the fact that I missed out on working on their video because i was teaching!! ooo and the original Moon Walker!!

Directed by the legend that is Eran Creevy shot in the George Lucas Star Wars studio in Elstree this was epic! 16 hours maybe more, of epic- ness! Me and Peretz did the lot many many characters, hair extensions, rollers, bandages, false nails, cuts, bruises, cold sores, black eyes, handle bar moustache's and a whole lot off trailer trash.

A glorious day in the basement of Londis East Dulich working on top of a fridge with my partner in crime Peretz assisted by the lovely Luisa. We churned out so many characters that day, goths, roller girl, shop assistants/ manager, Kudi's soap girls and the list goes on, my personal favourite was the police woman that we based on a cross between a 90's Vanessa Paradis and Clueless' Alicia Silverstone in that Aerosmith video.
Directed by '32'
