Grunge makeup Tutorial with Mo

Although grunge style is synonymous with the '90s, it is still a look that can be translated into every day life.  90’s makeup is back and is more wearable now than ever. Who couldn’t love the 90’s, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss were still a couple. Drew Barrymore was killing the whole fashion thing and Courtney Love was rocking the smudged, I just rolled (literally) out of bed look.   Women like Helena Bonham Carter and the Olsen twins carry a certain mystique about them. They are dark, mysterious and yet beautiful at the same time. Forget about perfect flicks, original grunge is where its at. We thought we’d do a quick grunge inspired makeup look for you on our beautiful model Mo. Watch...

Khaleesi Makeup Tutorial

Here at the Beauty Brief we are a little bit obsessed with Game of Thrones and decided it was about time we jumped on the bandwagon to create our very own Khaleesi (Daenery's Targaryen) inspired makeup look. With her glowing radiant skin and her long ice white hair, Deanery's Targaryen has become somewhat of a beauty icon. This is a really quick and easy makeup look to recreate as so far Khaleesi's makeup doesn't change much throughout the seasons and remains soft and natural.  If you decide to wear the Dothraki outfit then just dirty the makeup up a little.

Harley Quinn Makeup Tutorial

Halloween season (also known as All Hallows' Eve) is officially upon us and its time for pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, dressing up and trick or treating!  We thought we would dress up and show you guys how to recreate some of this years popular themes starting with Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. We wanted to keep the character as authentic as possible and made everything ourselves, from the costume to the makeup.  This was such a fun look to recreate.  What made it even better was our amazing model for the day Victoria who totally Kicked Ass at being the infamous Harley Quinn. Watch our video if you want to recreate this look. I will link everything we used below.

Victoria Secret’s inspired makeup

Now we're not meaning to make you jealous but we had our very own Victoria's Secret lookalike in the studio recently.  We thought Jemma was just perfect fit for this look and had a little bit of an Alessandra Ambrosio look about her. Victoria Secret started working with renowned models in the 1990's and has gone on to feature some amazingly beautiful women Alessandra Ambrosia being one of them.  Ambrosia is a brazilian model and is well known for her work with Victoria Secret and has even walked one show in lingerie made entirely out of candy. Here at The Beauty brief we love a little bit of glam and wanted to show you how to create a look that Alessandra recently wore...

Prom makeup tutorial

It feels like a lifetime ago since I was getting ready to go to prom. I remember the excitement of getting ready, going to the school and seeing everyone all dressed up in their ball gowns, suits and kilts.  I loved prom and would go back to relive it in a second.  We had the lovely model Storm back in the studio recently and as I'm doing Storm's prom makeup we all thought it would be fun to film her trial. Storm had sent us some references for her makeup which is always a great idea when you are having your makeup done for a special occasion.  Makeup can be quite a personal thing and often your client has something specific...
