Male Grooming by Heather B
Here's a little song by BENEDICT (one to watch!) called 'Table Manners' recorded live at SARM Studios. He say's it's essentially all the things we take for granted and never say to our mummas, but really should!
As it's my Mum's birthday tomorrow, this ones for you... HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMSICOLA THOMPSON, LOVE YOU XXX
DRUM ROLL PLEASE... the wait is over!
Get yer dancing shoes on. Here, is A*M*E's NEW video for her forthcoming single HEARTLESS and It's what you'd call, a proper pop anthem. Fact.
Had great time creating all the beautiful make-up looks on A*M*E using MAC make-up with a bit of Revlon and Topshop thrown in too. A*M*E's awesome dancers were made-up to look like gorgeous, graphic clones, with perfect skin, graphic black eyeliner, strong brows and bright lips, again using MAC. Obvs. I couldn't have done all A*M*E's make-up looks AND the 4 dancers make-up and hair all on my own so luckily I had assistance from Sally Watterson and Summer Dyason who did a great job with her dancers, thanks ladies!
If you would like to know more about any of the make-up products used, or any make-up tip requests just leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
And remember... "Don't you leave me in the darkness... no don't you be so heartless"
JUST in case you hadn't heard (and if not, shame on you)... A*M*E is at No.1 in the UK charts and has remained there for 2 whole weeks, with Duke Dumont's 'Need U (100%)'. By way of a small blog celebration, I've knocked together this picture tribute if you will, just some of the fun make-up times we have had up until now. Congratulations A*M*E! #proud
Now get your lugholes round this... enjoy! http://youtu.be/aMHWsdVIpLo

LOVED creating these purple peepers for A*M*E's live performance of 'Play The Game Boy' with Annie Mac. Talk about POP!

Here's A*M*E with a sneaky 'behind the scenes' peak at her video for 'Play The Game Boy'... K-POP inspired, bright-animated make-up, paints and pigments galore and I loved every minute of it!

Another A*M*E shoot and interview published in We Love Pop Magazine, predicting the STARS OF 2013. I told ya! Watch this space!

Even though you can't really see my make-up handy work, I thought I would share this with you anyway as I really, really love this picture of A*M*E taken by Leonie Hampton for FADER Magazine, Issue 82-Photo Issue. Check out Kim Taylor Bennett's story on A*M*E here... GEN F: AME.

Having worked with A*M*E since her first ever viral music video 'City Lights' I know how amazingly talented she is and just how hard she has been working so I am thrilled to see her listed on the BBC Sound of 2013.
To give you an idea, previous winners have included Adele, 50 Cent, Ellie Golding and Jessie J to name a few.
Here are some links to A*M*E's music so far: Play The Game Boy - Find A Boy - Ride or Die and as championed by Annie Mac on Radio 1, Need U 100% - Duke Dumont feat A*M*E, available to buy from Beatport NOW! I've been banging on for quite some time now, but really... WATCH OUT WORLD, HERE COMES A*M*E and about time too!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I trust you've all enjoyed the festive season and, like me, are no doubt in search of that elusive health wagon that people speak of (has anybody seen it?).
Well before you forget the festive season completely, I must ask, did you have Tracey Thorn's album 'Tinsel and Lights' in your life?
I had the pleasure of working with Tracey on her album promo shoot and, after hearing 'Joy' Tracey's first (and very moving) track on the acclaimed album, I cried! Tracey has accomplished writing a brand new festive song that, with her cool 'smooth like velvet' voice, is already up there with 'Fairytale Of New York'! Fact.
Now go buy it quick, just in time for next Christmas!
OMG! I have been bursting to post about this since the video was released this week!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE... THIS is A*M*E's official debut single 'PLAY THE GAME BOY', written by A*M*E and Electric.
POPJUSTICE is bang on with their summary... "This is the bit where everyone who's enjoyed the A*M*E 'buzz tracks' suddenly goes "... HERE IS A BIG POP THING HAPPENING RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES", right? Right." RIGHT. Inspired by her love of K-POP, A*M*E wanted to look bright and really animated... YES! Out came a myriad of MAC Lip Mixes and Pigments to create über bright lips and eye brights ranging from MAC and NARS to BARRY M and MAYBELLINE (believe me, she's born with it!). It's safe to say... I. LOVED. EVERY. MINUTE!
PLAY THE GAME BOY will be released on Future/Universal on November 4th.

THE F▲CE@thefacetheband a fabulous glam pop trio and force to be reckoned with! Their catchy pop tracks will have you running to the nearest discotheque to throw down some shapes, no doubt about it! I had the pleasure of making them up for this shoot which was published in the summer issue of Gay Times Magazine and used as the cover for the DREAM BEATS single 'Love Stuck' featuring the THE F▲CE
I challenge you to listen to this track and not get your groove on... believe me... it's impossible damn it! *shakes tush*
LOVE IT! LOVE STUCK!
