If you’re into all things makeup then I can’t recommend this magazine enough!
From reading my creative makeup breakdowns to watching my makeup tutorials you’ll know I’m an avid fan of Kryolan UK products. My makeup kit originated in college back in 2003 and everything was supplied by Kryolan Professional Make-up, that’s where my love started.
On the walls in our makeup classroom hung posters of wild and wacky makeup looks by Kryolan artists. Everything they produced left me feeling inspired as a makeup artist, and the brand still has that effect on me now. Whether it’s the content created for this magazine, or, the astounding creations for their annual calendars, you will always be left in awe by the talents that represent Kryolan.
Back in my college days Kryolan were apart of Charles Fox and I used to visit their Covent Garden store (which is now their Kryolan Store) and I was like a child at Christmas. My eyes would light up and I would feel giddy with excitement as I perused the shelves desperate to play with every single item. I have always gravitated towards the SFX (Special FX) products more than the beauty ones. Something about seeing fake moustaches and foam latex noses lights a fire in my belly, and the inner artist in me instantly want to completely transform someones face! There’s no place like Kryolan at Halloween… Oh, except for my makeup room of course ;)
SO… Kryolan have released issue 4 of their M.U.I magazine and it’s brilliant, especially if you’re looking to further educate yourself on makeup or just learn more about the brand. Paul Merchant (Head of Make-Up and Make-Up Design at Kryolan UK) has created some inspiring looks within the magazine and has produced a step-by-step guide on how to achieve these looks. I’d recommend it for both aspiring MUAs and industry professionals alike, it’s packed full of tips and tricks.
I’d personally recommend reading the article about ‘Skin Tones and Skin Undertones!’ as it’s very informative, and important if you’re looking to get into makeup or brush up on your colour theory. Even if you’re just a makeup lover, when it comes to choosing the right foundation for you it’s essential you understand the undertone of your skin.
M.U.I magazine retails at just £5.95, and for the invaluable information it provides you with it’s a bargain!
This is not a sponsored post, I just felt it was well worth sharing with you all. You can purchase the magazine in-store or via their website ‘here’.
What do all these dramatic images have in common besides Eddie Redmayne? The gifted Petra Nina Sellge as his groomer/makeup artist. This London-based marvel respects his freckles, celebrates his cheekbones and always styles his hair to set off his face beautifully, whether it’s for a photo shoot or a special event. (Sometimes she grooms both Eddie and Hannah for an occasion.) We honor Eddie — and Petra — on this Man Candy/Crush Monday.
