She's a dream, she's the one, she's hit No.1 on i tunes, 3 days with Ellie

Myself , Max, Ben (I got to make 2 new friends)  Jam and Emily spent 3 days wonderful days with Ellie -  Starting in a studio in South London for the recording of Your Song with Ben Lovett on piano - that was pretty moving as I doodled away in my sketch book.  Then we went to Hereford to find the places that meant the most to Ellie when she was growing up , we hiked around Hereford and a bit about London.

I am very proud that my shot of Ellie made it to the final cut and really speechless to find myself in it.

This is a very special video, my favourite ever.  Infact she's my favourite ever ...but I reckon you could guess that.....

I am so super lucky!!!

Devilishly handsome indeed at KOKO

Which then led to ...

This morning! and KoKo Pops next stop Alan Titchmarsh Show Tues 2nd Nov!!

Crystabel Riley came on board and  kindly took charge of the leopard tamers.

Then that led to this.... X factor o clock!

This time I had to design for 8 Leopardess', 8 Leopard trainers, 12 Drummer boys, 2 Aerialists, 2 Hoop dancers and 2 Fire eaters, all to be done in just over.............2 hours!  That's 34 characters in 2 hours 15 mins!

So I enlisted the ever faithfull Susanna Peretz to head the Leopadess' team and 6 fabulous assistants pictured above from left to right may I present to you Verity Cumming ( in charge of all tears) Oonah Anderson in with the Leopardess team, Theressa Davis all over the drummer boys, Andrea Gomez the Venezuelan (she makes the best coffee) on the Leopardess team and Luisa Savioa who tamed the Leopard tamers, last but not least Elias Hove the 'Prince of Bleach' - team Leopardess.

The X Factor was electric, people go mad for it, seriously crazy!

Its been a while... its all gone Diana Vickers

I have worked for nearly a month 7 days a week here's a little bit of what Ive been up to..
I created lots of crazy Circus characters for Diana Vickers 'My wicked heart'  brilliantly directed by Sarah Chatfield.

Brendan Robertson does Diana's beautiful hair and make up.

My favourite characters we're the drummer boys which included Sam Paul Evans drummer from my new band 'The Life The Love and the Grateful'. Hes on the left and that's Daniel on the right.

Thanks to Ala, Andrea and Verity for their assistance in amongst all the madness!

Well this was a long one and we did it for the LOVE.  Ben Newman directed  'It's On' and Wiley's 'Take That' Ben likes to use make up in his videos and he let's me loose it on faces, that was the brief for this one, 'Japaneese huraniki ...mmnn...just go mad' and that is why I will always jump at the chance to work with him.

There's £50 worth of MAC lashes in this video ... and that's after discount..

Hair - Susie Soux/  Susanna Peretz
Make up - Me
We couldn't have done it without the beach assistance from the FACE Luisa Savoia who at one point was feeding crew shrimp and deep fried Camembert from the boot of her yellow Skoda.

Love that shit x

I used MAC triple fusion mineralize powder on the eyes to get a metallic soft finish picking up on the dusky tones running through Ellies hair.

Ellie gets to press that button tomorrow night.... the National Lottery one!!

And as for me...well..the show must go on, Ive already worked on GMTV . Chart Show, NME TV on crutches and a) Im not very good at the crutches b) stairs are proving an unlady like problem.  I had to get a builder to give me a piggy back into Ellie's flat the other day, good job I had ditched the mini skirt!

Ellie Rocks Glastonbury..

Wow! Ellie totally smashed it at Glastonbury what an adventure I've had.   Finally I have  made it back home after sleeping on the tour bus and sharing 'The Machines' almost blown up bed all the while getting awfully lost.   My phone died and I nearly ended up in Switzerland Another ridiculous couple of days!!!

Make up wise we discovered Topshop's lipstick 'Brighton Rocks' its matte and it stays on all day, perfect for such festival adventures.... although to be frank in my lost panic circling Glastonbury for 4 hours I didn't give a toss what I looked like....

Lets talk Pins and Needles - Facial Rejuvenation - 'Life is for Living Well' - Lilja Katanka

Lets talk Needles

I have been really intrigued by reports of non ivavsive anti ageing facial accupunture or dare i say facelifts... I have been having accupunture for my back and period pains and felt for myself the amazing benifits of a few choicely placed pins.

So. I went to see Lilja Katanka to try this procedure out for myself.

Well, I lay on my back slightly nervous of the amount of needles that seemed to be laid ready for me all sizes tightly packed in their celephane shells.

Lil began on my ears tap tap tap then my hands feet and chest, so far so good.. you can build yourself up in anticipation for one of these needles but the prick is really awfully quick!

As Lil started to place them along my jaw, feeling the muscle then tapping it in I thought to myself..
a) this is definately worth £75 an session because its hardcore, you would not want anyone that didn't know what they were doing attempting this one, i also thought
b) jeez Lucy Wearing this is some new level of vanity as I'm being pinned down like some species of butterfly.

I told Lil,' I need a Dictaphone Lil so i can talk through this' she replied that soon I would find it difficult to talk anyway, surely not me i thought. Teeny tiny needles go in brow furrows and laughter lines they are so tiny they are tapped in with tweezers, By this point there was no way I could count how many I had in me they were everywhere in my neck. my scalp, . and boom... I fall into complete and utter deep relaxation like never before. woah.....

I awake as the pins are plucked out and a beautifully scented natural oil massaged onto my face, I pull myself up from the table and I'm astounded at how calm and relaxed I feel. Then I see for myself in the mirror that my eyes are a startling white (my eyes are never white) and I try to wrinkle up my brow but the furrows I have had forever are resistant to show themselves. My skin looks calm and more even toned my brow appears to have been lifted.

What magic is this!

It takes 12 sessions to complete the process and I have now had 6. The results are AMAZING, I don't know whether I thought that it would work. I couldn't really get my head round how it could work. But my skin is more luminous than when I was 15 pores are tightened, dark circles- what dark circles ? Any scars are fading away, my brows have definitely lifted, its much easier to apply my eyeliner, laughter lines are plumped, vanishing further everyday. I don't need to wear foundation, my skin is tighter but more than anything its the effect it has had on me psychologically that has suprised me the most and I whole heartedly couldn't recommend it enough. I feel centered and if you know me then you can imagine what a feat that is!

So Ill report back when I've had the 12 and until then here is some more informative information for you to read.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture helps to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction especially in the face and neck. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Bags and sagging around the eyes, face, and neck can be significantly reduced and toned up. Metabolism is greatly improved through these treatments, resulting in reduced puffiness often to the point of elimination. As Acupuncture can profoundly effect the regulation of hormones in the body, conditions like acne and overly dry skin can be quite improved. By substantially increasing the circulation of blood, lymph, and qi to the head, these treatments improve the complexion noticeably. Healthy facial coloring can be restored and there can be a tightening of the pores. Stress and habitual expressions which are so visible on the face are transformed resulting in a remarkably younger, calmer, and less worn looking face with which to meet the world. Inner beauty, vitality and serenity: all these very obviously visual benefits manifest in the appearance while many pre-existing health conditions are cleared up because Acupuncture works by treating the whole body and addressing the underlying causes of aging and disease.

Living Doll - Blocking Out Eyebrows - THE FACE

Here's my Demo from June 2nd, I experimented and blocked out the eyebrows with wax, pressing in copius amounts of powder before full coverage using no sealor or spirit gum. It was a fairly successful method, however I dont think Ill be trying it again. Having no sealor allows the wax to become way too mailable its fine initially but there's no way you could keep it that way throughout a shoot or music video. When you have the sealor its also makes it easier to get a good blend of shadow / pigment.
Matte plastic sealor is the best RCMA the others are just too gloopy and visable.
