10,000 view give-away!

Hey Everyone!

Makeup Essential Giveaway rules are at the bottom of this blog so read on……competition closes- April 3rd 2012……

Well South Africa is treating me very well, although I have managed to film my makeup tutorial I am having problems uploading it with the internet here. I will persist though!

I have been having an adventure of a lifetime in Cape Town getting to work as a makeup artist for BBC drama, Leonardo. Life throws you amazing opportunities sometimes and I am learning that you must be very open to receiving them. For instance, I was not meant to be working at the Cape Town film studios, but whilst hiking up Table Mountain on my first day I met a lovely girl who was also hiking up alone. We got chatting and it turned out that her brother was the lead actor in the drama and she suggested that I visit the film set with her to see what it is like. So I went with her the next day and decided that if I didn’t speak to the head makeup artist I would be missing out on an amazing opportunity. So…….I spoke to the awesomeness that is Fran, and asked if I could shadow her for the day. Since back in Scotland I only work in the Fashion/Beauty side of makeup being on a film set was a whole new experience. Anyway, Fran said that she could just put me work meaning that I would be getting some hands on experience……I ended up with a weeks worth of experience, AWESOME! I learnt the art of making someone appear dirty (this is honestly rather difficult) and how to make an individual look drunk- here I as introduced to the amazing bruise colour wheel by Ben Nye, I learn something new everyday and had fun being experimental with ‘modern 14th century’ makeup. Here a few snaps from behind the scenes.

Anyway, back to the 10,000 view giveaway….I can’t believe I am there, thankyou so much to every single one of you that has read and supported my blog. Thankyou especially to my subscribers. I shall be giving away a few of what I believe to be makeup essentials to 1 lucky winner!!! The only rule is that you must be following my blog to enter- this is free and you don’t need an account with wordpress, just your email address. So all you need to do to enter is send me an email or leave a comment telling me your MUST HAVE makeup product and why. You can email me at fionahendersonmakeup@gmail.com.

Good luck


Love Fi xx
