Because I Heart Kay: Panda Eyes

Because I Heart Kay: Panda Eyes

>> Why did I have so much beauty fodder to give away last week?  A quarter of it is revealed today on Because Magazine as I'm the latest person to be made up by the legendary make-up artist Kay Montano in a four part series that's vaguely inspired by beauty looks from the S/S 12 shows.  Now long time Style Bubble readers will know how DUSTY the Beauty School Dropout category is on this blog and I have repeatedly reiterated that I am totally clueless in the beauty department.  I literally jumped at the chance to be taught by a professional with the wonderful team at Because filming it and editing it all into a neat 30 second video.  Hurrah!  

To ask who Montano HASN'T done make-up for is probably a better way of finding out about her client list.  From high fashion to celebrity clients, she's pretty much done em' all.  I should have spent my time with her more wisely probing all the things I ever wanted to find out about the mysterious world of make-up.  Except we ended up having too much fun slapping a lot of product on and talking about vloggers and beauty blogs that do erm… the "hairy arm swatch".  I'll leave you to decipher that one.  

Montano has done a host of beauty tutorials for Because including ones for channelling Tina Chow and Diana Ross.  I've long been a fan of their 30 second video flick that is probably a more successful way of getting people's attention and so it's quite odd to see myself ACTUALLY be in one.  We kick off with Gucci's S/S 12 panda eyes.  They're not meant to be EXACTLY a like for like replica of the catwalk look but for me, this amount of black make-up around my eye is most definitely a revelation.  You can find out all the details about what exactly went on my face on Because.  By the by, I am supposed to be looking like a loon in these vids and doing all kinds of strange gestures.  This isn't my natural state of being although it would be a pretty breezy world if I could have my hair blowing in the wind permanently and constantly waving my fingers like I just don't care .  



P.S.  These are the people that won the beauy tombola – will be contacting you guys Charu (16 November 2011 at 22:48), Grace B. (17 November 2011 at 23:27), Raquel (17 November 2011 at 11:15), Eleanor (18 November 2011 at 19:46), Alex (21 November 2011 at 02:04)

P.P.S. Oh, and thanks to hairdresser Jack Merrick-Thirlway for teaching me that with a straightening iron, my fringe can do something other than hang straight.  I'll be burning my forehead trying this out for myself.

    Um, that video is too cool. Also, I like the way your hair is styled. All in all, way coooool
    (The whimsy music in the video and the cool factor has rendered me incapable of vocabulary it seems)
