Make-Over Show on Breakfast Television (BTV)

6 Sep

OK, here it is… I know all of you like those reality show stuff: the Make-Over show is back again! I had another opportunity to do a Make-over show on Breakfast Television (CityTV) in Vancouver with the famous celebrity hair stylist Van Hong from Salon Blue in Surrey. BTV choose one winner each month from bunch of ladies who entered themselves online, who wish to be treated as a celebrity on TV, and the lucky winner on the Sept. 2, 2011’s TV show goes to Shannon!

As usual, I had to get up extra early to go to the TV station because BTV is aired at 5:30AM weekdays in the morning. It was my first time meeting Shannon at the make-up room. Seeing what Van had done to her hair colouring & style, right away I have in mind what I want to do for Shannon for her new make-up look.

After speaking with Shannon, I find out that she works in the male-dominating lumber industry, and she doesn’t really do too much to her everyday work make-up. So I decided to play a bit with the colouring on her face! I wanted to use green colours on her eyes so it will compliment with her new coral-y, reddish hair colour (based on colour theory – opposite colours on the colour wheel compliment each other).

The the style of the eye make-up is smokey eye, and for your information, smokey eye doesn’t mean it has to be in dark/black colours. It is about a technique of blending colours from dark (from the lash line) to the light (in the outer edge) all around the eyes.  In addition, I thickened the eyeliner and winged up at the outer corner as that cat liner trend is really coming back again in this fall/winter season! Also, I painted her eye brows to match with her new hair colour as well!
