AW17 Couture Beauty

By | July 5th, 2017|BBlogger, Beauty, Blog, Blogger, Editorial Makeup, Makeup, Makeup Artist, Paris Couture|

With the Paris Couture Fashion shows only 3 days in we are already obsessed with some of the beauty looks we are seeing. Yes we've had the usual flawless 'bare-faced' complexion with a slick of a red lip, which as you know we are big fans of here at the academy, but it's the Chanel and Maison Margiela shows that have really got our makeup brushes twitching. Makeup legend Tom Pecheux created a gorgeous 'swatched-effect' sunset eye for Karl [...]

So once again the Cassie Lomas Makeup Academy Events team has smashed it at their one of many Red Carpet events. Part of our extensive aftercare is ensuring that our graduates get the opportunity to represent the academy at the events we get rolling in, and last weekend we sent a select team of our amazing graduates to cover The British Soap Awards and work with not only the actors, but the behind the scenes crew and publicists to make them [...]

Graphic Eyeliner Trend Cassie Lomas Blog

By | June 1st, 2017|BBlogger, Beauty, Blog, Blogger, Cassie Lomas Loves, Makeup, Makeup Artist|

I have been asked a lot recently for natural makeup with the focus on a graphic liner. I think people are so over glam makeup that they want to go back to basics but still have a bit of something special and so the graphic liner works a trick. The easiest place to put a liner is in the socket line because you have a shape to follow. It looks great in so many colours. [...]

Best Fake Tan Products I had a great time last week on This Morning with Ruth and Rylan taking about the best fake tan products on the market and the added extras you now get included when you choose to self tan. You may wonder how I'm a tan expert when I do makeup but as I always say there is so much more to being a makeup artist than just applying makeup. In my 20 years I have [...]

Festival Makeup Yesssss it's that time of year when the sun starts making a regular appearance, music is uplifting and we go all out celebrating it. It's festival time and its time to think about the different things you can do with your festival makeup! This is the perfect excuse to really go for it with festival makeup and have fun. Now that doesn't mean we have to pile on more foundation, exaggerate the contour and double up on [...]

London Makeup School

I am so excited I could explode! We now have a London Makeup School. I've worked and lived in London for coming up to 20 years now. I spent so much time there building my career and it wasn't until I met my husband and started my family that I began to split my time between Manchester and London. Opening the makeup academy in Manchester was perfect for my timing and I love what we have built but [...]

A (rare) Night Out Ritual

By | March 31st, 2017|BBlogger, Beauty, Blog, Blogger, Cassie Lomas Loves, Makeup, Makeup Artist, Skincare, Uncategorized|

It's been a crazy busy year already, so a night out with the Hubby and friends has been a rare thing, so my pamper ritual has to be pretty special. It all starts with lighting scented candles, to calm the mood and relax me. I love the ones from www.picpop.co.uk . A fellow busy working mum, Naomi has an eclectic mix of gorgeous goodies for you and your little ones and her MamaMantra candles are amazing; reminding Mama's to burn [...]

Editorial Makeup

By | March 10th, 2017|BBlogger, Beauty, Blog, Cassie Lomas Loves, Editorial Makeup, Makeup, Makeup Artist, Skincare|

I’ve been working on some really cool editorial shoots recently, which of course has prompted me to do lots of shopping. Even when you are doing an actual makeup that looks like there is nothing on the skin, it can take more time than when doing more of a glam look. The first thing to do is make the skin look perfect. I always like to start with a little bit of a mask that can really hydrate the [...]

Red Carpet Makeup

By | March 3rd, 2017|BBlogger, Beauty, Blog, Cassie Lomas Loves, Makeup, Makeup Artist, Red Carpet|

I absolutely love getting clients ready for the the red carpet. There are so many things to consider and plan for that it can take a few days preparation and it isn’t always about just turning up and doing a pretty makeup. I always spend a few days researching the client, the event, the trends and looking for inspiration. I never just go to work and then decide what I am doing, it just doesn’t work for me. I [...]
