Clown Makeup

Halloween makeup simple spooktacular ideas

563 388 Vanity Van

With every October comes the same dreaded decision about what you’re going to dress up as. Halloween obsessives may have been planning their Halloween makeup since last year, for the rest of us self-proclaimed procrastinators, we are more likely to be thinking, “can’t I just say screw it and paint some cat whiskers on my face again”. The Vanity Van team are coming to the rescue this year with some unusual, simple ideas to encourage you to get creative with your looks.

Clown Halloween Makeup

The Colourful Clown

A creepy clown is a cult favourite in the Halloween costume realm, but why not put a creative spin on it? Instead of your classic IT-esque, circus clown, swap your red and black paints for bold neon eyeshadows and bright lipstick. This colourful clown look is incredibly simple to create – perfect for those of you leaving your costume to the last minute. There is no need to be light handed with your application, a bit of smudged lipstick here and there will only add to the look. And there you have it – glamour in the form of a nightmare… Photo credit to @dehsonae

Halloween Makeup Lip ArtSpooktastic Lip Art

When it comes to Halloween makeup, lips are sadly often neglected. The Halloween lip art possibilities are endless, from slapping on all the blood and gore you can get your hands on to art inspired by your favourite spooky characters. A personal favourite of ours is the glitter pumpkin lip art and what a scarily good Instagram post. Pair your lip of choice up with a smoky eye and you’ll be turning heads all night.

Forget the Setting Spray

Melting Face Halloween Makeup

I’m sure none of us can forget the ‘melting face’ makeup trend that took the internet by storm in 2016 and guess what ladies, it’s making a comeback. Whether you want to look like a melted ice cream or you’re opting for something straight out of a horror film, the only supplies needed for this look is foundation and scar gel and you’ll be melting like butter on toast. This is the only time where you will be intentionally encouraging your makeup to melt off,  so forget the setting spray and go in hard. Photo credit to @desiperkins

If you are throwing a Halloween event or campaign and want your team or guests styled, we offer a Halloween makeup experience as part of the entertainment at your party then get in touch soon to inquire about availability at bookings@vanityvan.co.uk or give us a call on 0800 6891757

Halloween only comes around once a year, so we are making it mandatory to go all out.

Summer hair – sexy sassy and effortless

955 955 Vanity Van

Second in our summer series our team have pulled together some ideas to create that sexy summer hair look that takes minimal effort and gives maximum impact.

summer hairThe key to sexy summer hair is sun-dried locks, messy buns, textured braids and natural waves to keep you looking chic in the summer heat. One quick way to achieve this just stepped off the beach look is to use salt spray and a diffuser to create natural waves without over styling, this will provide a base for any summer styles you wish to achieve.

To create a wet look and look like a goddess who has just stepped out of the sea. Comb through a high gloss pomade. For anyone of any hair type looking to try out this trend, wear your mane down or slick it straight back for a more edgy look.

An easy to create style from the beach waves is the funky chignon- a chignon traditionally involves a sleek twist with tucked in ends the summer version is way less serious. Just twist smaller sections of hair at the top of the head and pin with bobby pins.

Another quick to create style is the messy top knot recently sported by Kendal Jenner at Coachella.

For those feeling a little more adventurous try a fishtail braid loose at the crown – a fishtail braid becomes even more mermaid-like with wispy strands.

And don’t forget you can always upgrade any style this summer with chunky glitter to give you that extra festival bling.

Our team after years of working in festivals and summer events are experts in recreating these effortless looks get in touch to find out more – http://vanityvan.co.uk/corporate

festival face and body gems

Festival face and body gems get the latest look

1024 1024 Vanity Van

This summer is playing host to a variety of festival trends, but taking centre stage, is a face and body gems look which brings a whole new meaning to ‘getting stoned in a field’ ….

festival face and body gems
Gems are everywhere this season and we are obsessed with the face & body designs we have been witnessing so far! Fancy foreheads, dazzling décolletage, blingy bottoms and disco-tits galore! Paired with a healthy dose of glitter, body jewels are sweeping the festival fields and we are on hand to share our top tips on how to achieve the look.

For the beginners amongst you, fear not, several companies including our friends over at The Festival Faces Group, have developed self-adhesive, all in one designs which you can just peel-and-stick and you’re good to go. However, if you feel adventurous, individual stones and a dab of body or eyelash glue can be used to create your own creations which are only limited by your own creativity.festival face and body gems

Always start with clean and dry skin, apply your gems to your face or body with a dab of glue (please ensure this is suitable for use on the skin – eyelash glue is a great option) and allow to dry. Once your gems are in place you can then add fine and chunky glitter around them for the ultimate festival look. Take a flat brush and hair gel, apply to the skin surrounding your gems and sprinkle glitter with reckless abandon until your dazzling look is complete…but remember, more is most definitely more when it comes to glitter!

If you would like to bring this dazzling look to your upcoming event, contact one of our fabulous team at info@vanityvan.co.uk for more information.

minimal makeup

Our top five tips for minimal make up

862 574 Vanity Van

In recent years, we have noticed the heavy-handed approach to make up application has been a consistent trend. We have been packing layer upon layer of makeup onto our faces, to the point where we wouldn’t have looked out of place on a night out with Ru Paul Charles…

After years of celebrminimal makeupity inspired trends of contouring, highlighting, strobing, baking and applying make up with all manner of random objects… cue summer 2017 and the welcome appearance of the minimal makeup trend.
We can almost hear our pores breathing a sigh of relief.
It’s time to strip it all back ladies and embrace a fresh-faced feel for summer.

Whether you are going au naturel to be on trend, detox your skin, or simply out of sheer laziness(let’s face it girls, we all have those days) we have our top 5 tips to create a fresh minimal face this season.

Tip 1 – Skin: Your skin is your canvas. To give you the absolute best result possible, ensure you have a fantastic, clean, fresh and hydrated base to start with by exfoliating, cleansing and moisturising regularly. Drink plenty of water and always ALWAYS remember to take off your makeup before heading to bed.

Tip 2 – Base: Embrace the ‘less is more’ approach. Ditch the foundation and consider a BB or CC cream. If going bare-faced is just too far out of your comfort zone try a mineral makeup powder. Concealer is your best friend for any problem areas, but keep it light and avoid caking it on….and don’t forget to blend!

Tip 3 – Eyes: We are going for natural, so put down the eyeliner and step away from the falsies! Keep the eye-shadow light and natural, and finish up with a slick of mascara – no spider lashes ladies… Brows should be tamed but not too overdone, try a clear or tinted brow gel to wrangle stray hairs and keep them looking groomed yet natural.

Tip 4 – Lips: A tinted lip balm should be a staple addition to any self-respecting woman’s handbag, and Is a perfect way to add a natural flush of colour whilst keeping your pout plumped and hydrated.

Tip 5 – Cheeks: Aim for a natural ‘flush’. A peach cream-blush will give you an understated pop of colour yet keep your skin dewy. A touch of highlighter to add to your radiance, and a dusting of bronzer on the high points of your face will give you a sun-kissed glow, and you’re good to go!

We’ve had a memorable first year working with The Pop-Up hotel team creating a Pop-Up spa experience in their boutique camping area situated just outside of Glastonbury. The Pop-Up Hotel and Motel are perfect for the more discerning festival goer who want to take Millie Mackintosh Hugo Taylor Glastonbury 2017‘Glamping’ to a whole new level. We even spotted and chatted to Made in Chelsea stars Millie Macintosh and Hugo Taylor who were in residence loving the lavish Glastonbury festival experience.

One of our most luxury set ups yet, our fabulous spa area was equipped with hair stations, make-up and glitter zones, barbering chairs, nail booths and three therapy treatment rooms. In true spa style we had an exclusive outdoor pool and hot tub particularly ideal for the beginning of the festival when temperatures soared to a melting 34 degrees! The customers thought it was a wonderful addition, lying in the scorching sun with an ice cold Peroni dipping their feet.

Glitter Beards Glasonbury

As always, its all about glitter at Glastonbury! Back in 2015 we sawa shift in this trend moving from the more delicate face art to bucket loads of glitter – the more the merrier.  Not only did we offer fabulous facial decorations, but we also looked after a few brave gentlemen who rocked the glitter beard look. We made sure to incorporate glitter into many of our styles and treatments  we were loving the glittery space bun, a magical addition to any festival look.

Due to the haphazarGlastonbury pop up salon plaitsd weather we’ve also been flat out on up do’s and precision plaits. Braids are perfect for greasy festival hair – the dirtier the better ! And they are super durable making them the ideal style trend to survive the downpours and flying beer cups. The most popular styles were a Dutch braid into a fish tail, Mohawk plaits and a faux hawk up do created using buns.

As important as it is to beon trend, you cannot forget about relaxing and unwinding over what is a long weekend. Many people found the luxury Complete Revival massage which is an hour and a half perfect to ease hangovers and the aches and pains of festival life. Our full body rub downs and facials were offered alongside the more holistic Reiki and reflexology going down a treat with weary festival heros.

We loved the customers at this event and cannot wait to beautify them all again next year !Glasto glitter face art
