Leading British make-up designer Naomi Donne has launched her new YouTube channel with the series ‘Made Up Stories’. Having worked with countless celebrities on numerous award-winning films (James Bond, Cinderella, Zoolander) to name but a few, Naomi is introducing her tricks of the trade from her 30 years of experience with the help of a few familiar faces on the way. From chats and make-overs with some famous friends, to addressing people with particular facial problems such as scarring or acne to executing extreme transformations for people who haven’t had the opportunity to access make-up, ‘Made Up Stories’ is a channel for everyone. So whether you are interested in film, the art of make-up or want to delve into the lives of people from all walks of life, Naomi’s YouTube channel is for you. The latest video is with Ruby Wax and features what she calls the ‘fantastic base’, ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil foundation. To celebrate, you can order Skin veil now via ELLISFAAS.com using code RUBYWAX and get a one-time-only introductory 10% off on the foundation. The code is valid for the rest of May.
