Union Square Fashion Weekend - The Pics!

So, as you probably know by now, my weekend was quite busy working at the Union Square Fashion Weekend, in Aberdeen. I spent the mornings making over the models, my lunchtimes on stage doing makeup demos (no photos of that though) and all my time in between was spent enjoying the atmosphere & taking some snaps! Needless to say I am a tired little birdy & very much looking forward to bed tonight! Here are a few pics from the weekend...

I hate to use that awful term, but the models were all 'real girls' and we had such a fabulous variety of faces, skin tones, heights, shapes and sizes! Brilliant! Caireen was a tiny little fire cracker who loves makeup & embraced both the dark black red lips on the Saturday and the dark smokey grey eyes on Sunday. She also loved lashes so we piled them high!

Faye had some of the best eyebrows I've ever worked on! She also had amazing dark green eyes, so on both days we kept a very soft smokey look to enhance them, keeping lips nude & glossy.

Hazel is the winner of the Union Square Top Model competition and she is seriously a model in the making! At 5'10" with gorgeous skin, teeth and legs up to *here*, she would give Jade a serious run for her money!

On Hazel's eyes on Sunday, I used a gold cream base and packed on MAC's Antique Gold pigment.
