It’s almost time for Professional Beauty London 2016! The biggest event in our calendar, we wanted to bring the best speakers with us. From college training to fashion styling, bodypainting to camouflage make-up, our experts are on-hand to keep you informed and educated. The Warpaint Live Stage is FREE to visit – take a seat and join us for two days of fascinating demonstrations.
Here’s a taster of what you can expect, filmed at last year’s show.
Sunday 28th February
11am – Armand Beasley
Returning to London is the brilliant Armand Beasley, an in-demand celebrity make-up artist who has worked with Goldie Hawn, Natasha Hamilton and Michelle Keegan. An accomplished speaker with an acting background to boot, Armand will be hosting our Warpaint stage all weekend. He’s also our first speaker, where he will be talking about his passion for organic and natural make-up brands as well as creating a beautiful look on stage.
12.30pm – Kryolan
Gemma Horner, Kryolan’s golden girl, will be on-hand to demonstrate the latest in seasonal beauty trends with some of the brand’s latest products. Whether it’s a bold brow or the perfect nude lip, Gemma’s looks are always very wearable, simple to achieve and effortlessly cool. As Head of Education for Kryolan UK she travelled the world extensively working alongside the Kryolan Team, working on America’s Next Top Model Live (Canada), Miss Universe (The Bahamas), The World Bodypainting Festival (Austria) and several fashion shows (Berlin). Most recently, she worked behind-the-scenes on The X Factor, including the live final.
2pm – Paintopia
Warpaint favourites Catriona Finlayson and Jennie Roberts return to Professional Beauty to create yet more stunning body art. Using the same theme as the competition they will be judging on the Monday, the ladies will create some Circus-themed body art on model Grace. Using brush and sponge in a variety of techniques, they will demonstrate illustrative and cirque styles using water-based bodypaint and a range of other cosmetic products. Not one to be missed!
3.30pm – Joey Bevan
The effervescent Joey Bevan returns to Professional Beauty to give our audience a taste of what it’s like to work on a high-fashion editorial shoot. With a team of models, MUAs and Hair Stylists, Joey will be demonstrating how the different elements of the team need to work together, how best to communicate ideas and collaborate to achieve the final image. As a brilliant fashion stylist and designer himself, he has worked on hundreds of shoots and is full of tips on how to create a positive and productive work environment.
Monday 29th February
11am – Kryolan
Taking to the stage on Monday is Victoria Lee, Kryolan UK’s Cosmetic Camouflage specialist, will present this useful area of make-up showcasing the Dermacolor range by Kryolan, which can camouflage tattoos, skin pigmentation and birth marks. While she has trained in Theatre, Film, TV, Fashion, and photographic make-up it is this specialist genre of cosmetic camouflage where she finds herself excelling. She has taken many international trips to teach this useful and rewarding discipline, with her most recent work including Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model Live and America’s Next Top Model Live in Canada.
12.30pm – ARTDECO
After the fantastic response to Macedonio Berezza’s Arctic Beauty look in Manchester, we’re thrilled to welcome Ger Kealy Cunniffe to the stage. As ARTDECO’s national make-up artist, who has made several TV appearances and conducted make-up masterclasses for beauty business owners all across Europe, she will be demonstrating the new Hello Sunshine bronzing collection from ARTDECO to create a bronze goddess look and bring us into the spring and summer months. Skin will look dewy and alive, with a more natural take on strobing.
2pm – Makeup Atelier Paris
We’re so excited to welcome Makeup Atelier Paris to Professional Beauty for the first time, as well as their speaker – the exceptional David Horne. As a qualified academic professional make-up artist who has more than 24 years’ experience as a highly sought after IMATS Stage Educator, UMAExpo Exhibitor, guest speaker, make-up designer and product innovator, his talk is a must-see. He’ll be talking about how to balance different tones on the face commonly found when working on Ebony skin, an essential skill for all make-up artists. He’ll be using Make-Up Atelier Paris products as well as his Glambase 2 Wheel for women of colour – if you haven’t already seen David’s House of Glamdolls school, click here!
