Show Me Your Makeup & Maybelline NY

12th October 2010








I was kindly invited by Maybelline to check out a unique collaboration with Jackie Dixon photographer and founder of to celebrate the launch of the 2011 Limited Edition Calendar, and to let bloggers to experience behind the scene. Β Newly appointed UK Make-up Director for Maybelline New York Sharon Dowsett worked on some looks on spokesmodel Charlotte Kemp Muhl, peacock colours of greens, blues and golds are going to be ‘IN’ in SS11….stunning colours.

I’ve been following Jackie’s blog for two years it was a joy to witness her working and professionalism on set and I must say she’s a pretty damn good photographer.

Thanks Tess Gee of Loreal UK for inviting me πŸ˜€
