We got the scoop on how hair and makeup artist Olivia Muldoon created model and fashion blogger Aoife Malone’s look for Grainne Maher::Fashion Vault preview.
Olivia created Aoife’s hair and makeup look at her new studio in Stranmillis – a girlie haven of glamour all kitted out with everything a girl could need to get ready for a big event. The preview event for Grainne Maher::Fashion Vault was a big event for the Belfast designer so she called in Olivia’s expert talents to create a look that would work for the photo call right through the evening with Aoife wearing a selection of outfits.
“The two main dresses by London designer Jane Bowler looked pretty futuristic with graphic lines and the gold leather dress by Welsh designer Jayne Pierson was a real statement look so I decided to make the make up all about the eyeliner and lips. I used a little gold eye shadow on the lids and it was all about lines across the eyes using gel liner for a graphic effect. The lips were quite dark using Lime Crime velveteen lipstick in Wicked,” said Olivia.
Hair was curled from mid lengths with a wand and then brushed out. When working with a look to compliment fashion it needs to work with different outfits and allow the clothes to stand out so I kept the top very sleek to draw attention to her eyes and to allow Katrina to style the outfits with hats. I decided to pin it up to show off beautiful neck lines of the clothing.”
