It’s so exciting to be joining forces with Glitter Gal and to have our very own polish created for us, NOOKIE METALLIC – WOW! When the opportunity came up, I jumped at the chance to work with a reputable brand where the colour of the nails worked back with my designs” Nikita said of the collaboration.

MAC- Senior Artist Nicole Thompson

Leading up and amazing group of 65  make-up artists over 40 of RAFW shows is Mac Senior artist Nicole Thompson. Here are her must have products for the up-coming shows, which will include, Ginger and Smart, Camilla and Marc and Zambesi just to name a few.

fix -loresNicole’s first pick is the Fix Plus Spray ($27) 

“I will go through at least 3 bottles of this during FW my most favourite MAC product and it’s also the cheapest! Yay!”

I  love Fix Plus Spray too. Its probably one of my most used products even though I don’t really mention it much, it is really versatile. It works great with pigments, sheering out foundation or applying to your sponge or brush for an easier foundation application. Having super dry skin I also like to stipple some over my powder application to combat the cakey powdery look.

Her favourite uses,

“I will use it before and after moisturizing to really lock in that hydration. I will spritz it onto the bodies to give a beautiful sheen and if the model has dry skin I will load up the face with this spray and then massage it in.”

The next three are products that I’m personally yet to so I’ll stick with quotes from Nicole herself,

Face and body Foundation ($60)macfaceb

“This is the foundation of choice for MAC artists and also freelance artists and I can’t live without it, dramatic right? Its just that good. Its the foundation that doesn’t look like you are wearing anything you just manage to have a healthy glow, super dewy and super sheer. That’s what we use on the models bodies to even out their skin tone for all those skimpy outfits.”

Cream Colour Bases ($35)

Cream Colour Base

“In a range of colours matte is out of my book its all about fresh flawless sheeny skin and these products are the way to go. Use pearl or Hush to highlight the skin, and Tint or Mid-Tone Sepia to contour …ahhh”

SKIN Prep&Prime_lash-300

Prep and Prime Lash ($25)

“Can’t be bothered putting false lashes on? But want dramatic lashes this is the product to get them! Layer it on before your mascara and watch the lashes grow in length and thickness!!!”

Another quick tip from Marcel

Marcel Wants You!

to have flawless skin

NARSISSISM #3-Marcel says:

“Never create a mask with foundation. Look at the skin objectively, and pay close attention to areas of the face that need more coverage.

Apply foundation to the center, and always blend outward.”
