RowanJoy new collection….

Hey Guys!

It has been such a long time since I last wrote a blog but sadly internet here in Tanzania is not great and I have been very busy with the orphanage that I am currently involved with. If you want to know more about the work I am doing here in Africa you can check out my travel blog- http:/fionahtravels.wordpress.com

Anyway, I was very excited the other day to see some of the photos from RowanJoy’s spring/summer collection that we shot before I left for South Africa. The photoshoot which you can read about here on my blog was very bright and colourful, think Tropicana. I love how the photos have turned out, they look AMAZING.

This is the Fiona Dress (named after moi)

I had the most awesome time creating this rainbow makeup using Inglot eyeshadow. Sooooo……summery and beautiful.

I had the most fabulous photoshoot today with awesome Scottish designer, RowanJoy, gorgeous and hardworking model, Ashleigh Bradshaw, the best hairstylist EVER, Roy Rogers and his amazing assistant, Dean and last but not least the most talented photographer, Paul Marr. We all had such a fun day with lots of laughs, makeup, hair and outfit changes- 8 in total!!! Think ‘Tropicana’ and you will get a small insight into the theme for this shoot. I had so much fun with the makeup today and I got to use all my new Inglot eyeshadow colours! As you can see from the photo below I got very creative with the eyeshadow and discovered that Inglot eyeshadow is so amazing that when I blended the orange into the turquoise it turned purple!!! It was sooooo cool, I honestly squealed in delight, hee hee.

I can’t wait until I see the photos from this shoot, they are going to be amazing! Lots of contrasting colours, one of my favourites being yellow and turquoise! I even made my own lipstick colour for this shoot by mixing 3 different lipsticks together to achieve the perfect spring/summer colour.

To end the shoot we photographer a few of Rowan’s beautiful wedding dresses so the makeup got taken back to basics with a dewy/glowy base, pretty pearly, lilac eyeshadow, black classic flicked eyeliner and pink matt lips. I got a chance to use my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in ‘Blonde’ and it looks incredible on cheeks as a blush and highlighter all in one. Below is a little sneaky peek of the make up from the wedding photoshoot.

Ooooo.. and I have some more very, very exciting news… Rowan has named one of her dresses in her new collection after me!! Eeeeek!! How exciting is that! I can’t wait to show you all the dress once the photos have all been edited.

Anyway, I had better go as I need to finish packing my bag for Africa, I leave in 2 days time.. not long now. My next blog will probably be coming to you from Capetown. Meanwhile here is my newest makeup tutorial, just in time for Valentines Day. Make Up look number 7 in my ‘Around the World in 80 Make Up Looks’.
