Project Description

Make-up by Tina Brocklebank using MAC, Tom Ford and Bobbi Brown.

I was inspired by meeting Adam Burrell, (who was Ella Henderson’s makeup artist.) He used Swarovski crystals on her eyes and it looked so beautiful, twinkling away in the lights.  We were lucky enough to see Ella in concert last year, at her home gig, she was amazing, and I loved her make-up.  I have always admired Adam’s work, so it was so exciting when I finally met him and picked his brains!

To create this look I used a Bobbi Brown foundation stick mixed with MAC strobe cream, to create a dewy base.  Brows were painted on with gel eyeliner and perfected with a black pencil.  I added some cream eyeshadow on the whole of the eye area and then created a smokey eye, using a Tom Ford palette.  Finally adding on some MAC glitter eyeshadow on the top, then created a flick eyeliner with a black gel liner.  Then I added some false lashes by Red Cherry.

Lips were kept matte and then adding a bit of the glitter to finish.


I was also inspired by Pixiwoo’s tutorial – Creative crystal I love Sam and Nic’s work (Pixiwoo.)
