Collette Griffin Masterclass

I kindly got invited to Collette Griffins Masterclass which was held in the Waterford Health Park Pharmacy by the lovely Sandra. I was delighted as I love Masterclasses as you always learn new tips and tricks! Collette is an amazing person to go to see in action, if you get the chance to see her – GO!! She is great for teaching, you will have such a laugh and made us all feel so relaxed! Collette is always doing tutorials on her snapchat (collettegriff) and she is so easy to follow. Her other social medias are Facebook (Makeup By Collette) and Instagram (MakeupByColletteGriffin).

If your from Waterford and have not been into this pharmacy I would be surprised, they stock lots of brands I love such as Catrice, Flormar, Sleek, Glam & Co, Sunkissed tan, Human + Kind, I could keep going but they also got a few BH palettes in!! Follow there Social Media to see some more new items they get in – Snapchat (whppslievekeale), Facebook (Waterford Health Park Pharmacy), Instagram (WaterfordHealthParkPharmacy).

 

 

 

  • Starts with brows, brush through with a spoolie and used Cailyn Brow Gellux in shade “Oak” and applied with a Mac 263. Also Inglot 31T is a very good brush. Small strokes for brows. Cailyn Gellux is waterproof and smudge proof.
  • Mix brow gel and duraline together on the back of hand and if it hardens up just add more duraline to make it easier to work with.
  • Used Cailyn bright on eye balm for carving, sharpening the brows and fixing any mistakes using Mac 252. We all need this brush it’s supposed to be amazing! Its one of Collettes most loved brush! The eye balm is creating a blank canvas to work on which removes things such as veins on the eye lid. Mac 252 brush
  • For the eyes The balm Meet Matte Trimony and The Nude’tude palettes were used. Collette starts with highlighting the brow bone and  inner corner of eye with a matte white.The balm Meet Matte Trimony palette
  • Blank Canvas E24 brush – highlighting brow bone and inner corner
  • Zoeva 221, 227 & 228 brushes. 228 for transition colour, 221 for building up colour and 227 for darker colour on outer V.
  • Nima “Jennie” for blending out the edges
  • Mac 212 brush to smudge out liner on bottom. Another brush like this is Blank Canvas E44.
  • Collette used Urban Decay Naked Concealer and Cailyn bright eye primer with a Mac 252 on each eye to create a half cut crease look to give us an example on each eye. The Cailyn bright eye primer came out as a better blank canvas as it was more of a white Base. To create the cut crease go over your original crease.
  • As she was using a gold glitter she settled the primer with a gold shimmer. Than blending previous colours together with the shimmer to take away the harsh line.
  • The glitter used was Cailyn glitter in shade “Blondie” but to stick this collette uses Too Faced shadow insurance as a Base. To stick pigments down she applies straight to the wet concealer/primer used on the eye.
  • Eye Rule : Eye colours used on top of to be used on the bottom.
  • Eye liner used was The balm Gel pencil liner in black “Mr Right Now” which dries matte. This was smoked out using a Mac 212 brush.
  • The balm “schwing” liquid liner was used for a wing liner. A liquid liner was used as it was easier to work with going over glitter and creates a nice smoother line than a gel would. The Balm Schwing liner
  • The lashes used for the look were Rebeluna lashes in style “kate”. To apply the eye lash glue, cut a cotton pad in half and you have 2 applicators for applying the lash glue to the lash band. Wait about 30 seconds for glue to get tacky before applying to eyes.Rebeluna lashes kate
  • Primer used was The Balm Time balm primer.
  • Foundation used was Cailyn HD in shade 03 & 04, mixed together to give an exact shade to match client as she had tan applied. This foundation is super full coverage so never use under the eyes, use concealer. Collette used a beauty blender to press foundation into the skin.Cailyn foundation
  • Urban Decay concealer was used to highlight the face using a Morphe E8 brush to blend out.
  • Cailyn banana powder was used to set areas of concealer. If you are Pale do not use this, use a translucent powder.
  • To Contour she used The Balm Highlight N Con tour palette using a Mac 163 brush for bronzing but the Blank Canvas F04 is like this angled brush. And an Inglot 4ss brush for contouring with a darker shade and only bringing it out a small amount.The balm highlight n con tour palette
  • Using none other than The Balm Mary Lou highlighter using a Sigma F35 brush to highlight the Cheek bones and top of nose and using a smaller brush to highlight cupids bow.
  • The Balm Hot mama blush using a Morphe M509 brush.
  • Cailyn lip liner in shade “maple”. Collette favourite shade! Uses it for all her lips bar a red lip. Using a real techniques lip brush, Cailyn lipstick in no 18 was applied. Oh what a lovely combo!
  • Set everything with Mac Fix+! Also a good dupe someone said for that was Rose Water… hmm may try that out!

Flormar – Future Historical Collection

Flormar has been one of my favourite drugstore brands since I came across it 2 years ago on holidays in Tenerife. In Tenerife, Flormar had its own store and I bought some stuff over there as it was so cheap and I knew the brand was not in Ireland. So after stocking up on a lot of makeup from this brand, used it, fell in love with it and than raging because we did not have it here, I very rarely used the items as I didn’t want to waste them.. I know I’m not the only one who would do this!!

About 2 months after the holiday Flormar had arrived in Ireland, which meant I could use my products every day!! Flormar ranges in prices from €2.95 – €12.95 and is such amazing quality! I attended Niamh Cleary (NCMakeup) masterclass in Waterford Health Park Pharmacy Waterford and she used Flormar Anti-blemish foundation, when seeing it being applied and the end result I fell in love. For the price of it, it was so flawless looking! I picked this up in shade “Honey” and I also picked up the new age matte liquid lipstick in shade “Tender Terra” and I love the colour. The foundation and lipstick were both used in picture below:
