The Advantage of Digital Media with HOD TV

HOD TV is a service that I find myself fully behind, as a huge fan of horror and thriller and with plans to create work around this in 2020, this is something I can see being a positive move and the team have made huge strides in a short time giving the market something fresh (and a little dark) that will change how we view indie film. From a (lost) creative stance this is a perfect avenue for us to explore.

Part of this will be taking our partner concept of The Lost Creatives forward and setting things in motion with our other partners (more on this soon). Our primary focus will be on horror and thriller projects for commercial sale.

There is something about being scared that really appeals to people and the team behind HOD TV really tapped into this with a kind of glee and business savvy that I can appreciate and it has opened my eyes to the potential of being a part of the film industry again this time on my own terms as a filmmaker and makeup artist. Moving forward we are not just looking at the potential of this market for ourselves but for our fellow artists and creators.

A New Chapter is Being Written With The Lost Creatives

A New Chapter is Being Written With The Lost Creatives site being built and new work in development for the film and Internet TV sector. We love the direction that The Lost Project is taking as we become a go to for beauty writing with a series of PR agents across the UK and USA coming to the table looking for additional support.

Over the month of September we will be shooting new content for both sites and making sure that all the I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed.

It is really exciting to be moving in this direction and we have already got our main social accounts up and running:

The Lost Creatives Facebook.

The Lost Creatives Instagram.

The Lost Creatives Twitter.

With a whole new set of goals and plans in motion it is a really exciting time and we do have the support of our various oversea’s contacts (including writers, distributors and actors) who are eager to be a part of the momentum we are creating and are ready to support us. Which is hugely gratifying.

Oh My Lash Tray Launch

oh my lash trays

Something my private clients rave about is the fact I use Oh My lash faux mink lashes and how beautiful they are when working beauty makeup. So when I found out that they were launching the lash trays I was absolutely intrigued and as always with this line I was not disappointed.

These synthetic lashes are set to be a new classic for the bridal and beauty sector especially those who want to be able to offer lash services and with clients who just want a little touch added these are perfect.

With the C curl and D curl lashes they are beautifully structured and add a touch of elegance to a look I can see this being a big seller for the lash technicians out there who want something with a strong ethical background and cost effective for their clients.

Oh My Lash, since its beginning has been about bringing a quality product to the market and as a makeup artist myself, I fully endorse the range and will definitely be adding more soon.

Its a strange thing, whenever I do a private client I end up using one set and having the client fawn over the other options (and giving them an extra pair), this addition of the lash trays will be a massive boost for my working kit, and I will be able to offer more lash treatments to my clients alongside their glamorous sister lashes which are already a staple of my work outside the fashion and media sector.

A perfect addition to any dressing table or a working artist kit, from the bridal sector to fashion and media, Oh My Lash is a perfect add on to your work and the new lash trays are the icing on the cake to what is an amazing British brand.

Explaining the Lost Boys

The Lost Boys as a concept has a dark heart, its a patchwork of different aspects from the darker side of the Peter Pan story to the current social and political atmosphere where we see people such as Milo Yiannopoulos who has talked openly about the disenfranchisement of young men over the last decade.

Melding these elements together The Lost Boys became a sort of tongue in cheek reference to the way men are viewed and takes some of the “boy who never grew up” stories and expand on them with a touch of the grunge movement, American Gothic and the subversion of masculinity.

The images themselves will be built around derelict buildings, waste ground and a fractured symbolism of nature. Each model will have his own story that will hint at both the inspiration of Pans Lost Boys to the more dystopic visuals of the backdrop to fit with the “council estate boys" look of the models.

Additionally, to the clean makeup looks I have planned, there will be integration (slowly) of character makeup elements such as scarring and bruising to add depth to the characters to give a level of the cinematic and a harsher reality of the concept.

I am going to add extra kit soon and will release details on what goes into a lost shoot in terms of gear from the camera equipment to the makeup and brushes used which in-itself will be released as a blog or blogs.

While I appreciate this is a personal project it will be used to promote the Lost Project and give a voice to a different side of my own commercial/media background in makeup design taking a little of the narrative described above into projects that are currently being scripted with a view to building a stable of work.

International Fashion Designers Exhibiting In a New Marleybone Popup Show

This May sees a unique opportunity to see and buy new designs from international designers at a new pop-up shop in Marylebone, London. The event on 13-26 May is organised by ‘Silk Road Fashion in London’ and ‘Adam and Alice’ brands.

With Creative director JamesC joining them on the 14th of May as head of makeup for a multi designer catwalk segment, we are really excited about the prospects of the show and what is to come from it. We are already prepping a range of new designs for future projects and working out potential marketing avenues to support the show.

The term silk road in and of itself is really clever and has its roots in trade roads and travel which is really appropriate given the upcoming event which is designed as a showcase. The event is designed to mimic the bizarre’s of the past where people of all cultures and creeds would gather to meet and greet, see friends, do business and the find the latest fashions. Seeing the combination of the Silk Road team and of course Adam and Alice is fantastic and will open the doors to a wide range of creative opportunities for artists across the board and as a makeup artist and creative team we are really excited to be a part of this.

As a networking opportunity this is an amazing place to be and over the run there will be a variety of small shows, open days for the public, guest speakers and lectures all based around the fashion world.

The leading lights behind this show Adam and Alice and The Silk Road Fashion in London team have put together a stellar itinerary and we are really excited to be a part of this.
