OCC Holiday 2012 Collection

OCC’s first Holiday Collection is now available worldwide and I have to say to say the new products look completely amazing, how can they not be when liptar and metallic have been put together in one little tube?

OCC had the following to say about The Metallurgy Collection ‘After three years of intensive product
development, OCC is proud to introduce a whole new breed of Lip Tar. Infused with state of the art hi-resolution metallic pigments, the unparallelled opacity has gone high-voltage electric with a reflective shimmer finish.’
And apparently you need even less that the original lip tar!!!
Here’s a look at the new colours

Makeup Kit Essentials – Prep and Prime

Over the coming weeks I am going to introduce you to a few products the I cant live without on set and in my personal makeup bag. The best place to start is at the beginning so, all of these products will be products used to prepare the face prior to having makeup applied.

The reason for priming the face is to help your makeup stay put longer, especially under the heat of studio lighting. Each of the products below are products I swear by some are new finds others are old loves. (more…)
