I recently went to a masterclass which was conducted by the very talented Make-Up Artist, Lan Nguyen-Grealis. It was to celebrate the launch of her new book Art & Make-up. The book showcases some of Lan’s daring creations with references from different eras, performing arts and sculpture. She has worked with many celebrities such as Bianca Jagger, Paloma Faith and Kelly Brook.
There are so many inspiring images throughout the book relating to Picasso, Cleopatra, The Great Gatsby and so many more. Whether you are a total make-up addict or not, there are some real pieces of art showcased in Lan’s Art & Makeup book.
One of my favourite parts of the book is the step-by-step guides on how to create certain looks and tools of the trade which means a lot of brushes!
I have recreated her smokey eye look from the ‘how to’ section at the back of the book, this one is for people with bigger eyes. I have changed it very slightly so I hope you enjoy the video tutorial, it is a little bit different to the looks I create but I really enjoyed doing it ♥
