I had the opportunity to attend one of the amazing lipart workshops run by international make up artist, Karla Powell. She produces some amazing images using a range of gorgeous make up brands AND facepaint!
The course was in Bromsgrove at the Atrix centre and we began with a some inspiring background of how Karla began her MUA career and how she runs her business now, sharing tips & tricks to success!
We were then shown how to prepare our lips using some homemade lip scrub (yes, we even made own own) and given a demonstration on how to create three beautiful lip designs (including Karla's signature designs, the broken glass & colour run look) using a range of gorgeous products such as, Illamasque, lip tar, lime grime, superstar & paradise face paint and of course MAC.
I can totally say that the workshop was brilliant, Karla really is such an inspiring woman and I can't wait to use some of the techniques I learnt today within my face & body art designs.
To see some of Karla's make up or if you are interested in attending one of her workshops, pop to her website www.karlapowell.co.uk or visit her on Facebook.
So, what do you think of my "broken glass" look?
