Last year we had the pleasure of working with SJ Lingerie to create a cheeky little film to launch their latest line. We always have a fun time working with the brand and the end product always comes out looking great. This film features SJ 2014 Collection, credits are below. Want more? Visit sjlingerie.com.au

“SJ Lingerie is an Australian made luxury lingerie line with personality! With the rebrand and launch of SJ Lingerie we wanted to do something fun to introduce the new collection and what better way than to dance in our lingerie to none other than Coolio. So with our awkward dance moves down pat and lots of giggles along the way, here you have it our very first SJ Dance Off. We hope you like it as much as we loved creating it.”

During our Fashion & Beauty Makeup Artistry course students study an Asian inspired module. Asian cultures are beautiful and have a rich history of fashion and beauty traditions. Students research and develop their own Asian inspired look in this class to complement the brief provided.  Here is a sneaky behind the scenes preview of our students getting ready for the photo shoot.

Do you struggle to find a nude to suit your complexion?
Is the nude lip you’re wearing washing you out?
Stop having those “foundation lips” and follow our tips on how to choose the right nude for your complexion.

FAIR COMPLEXION

Top Ford LipColour in Blush Nude
This shade is perfect for those with a fair complexion.
This shade has the right amount of beige and pink to it making it suitable for various types of fair complexions.

MEDIUM COMPLEXION

Nars Lipstick in Cruising
This lipstick colour works perfectly on all different skin tones but can be a great option for medium complexions.
The shade is slightly muted being more of a pink nude giving you the effect of “my lips but better”.

TAN/OLIVE COMPLEXION

Mac Lipstick in Creme D’Nude
Creme D’Nude is a cult favourite and is perfect for light to tan complexions.
This shade is very opaque and is a typical flesh tone nude.
For more tan/olive complexions it looks great with a darker brown lip liner blended in.

DARK COMPLEXION

Burberry Kisses in Cashmere
Burberry’s Cashmere is perfect for those with a darker natural lip colour.
It has a very creamy sheer finish of a darker browny nude.
This shade is perfect for those wanting a wash of colour.

In our Fashion & Beauty Makeup Artistry Course our students have a module where they learn techniques on how to apply makeup for dark skin, they learn colour theory, contouring principles and more. There are as many shades of black skin as there are of white and it is a necessity that professional makeup artists are capable of working with darker skin complexions.

Here is a behind the scenes video of our students working their magic and some of the final images.

Every semester our students get to work alongside fashion brands and a international fashion photographer to develop a brief and create a look to complement the latest fashion trends. Here are some shots from one of our intakes last year when they worked with a little birdie told me, a fashion store on James street in Burleigh Heads who stock amazing brands like by johnny, Cameo the Label, Talulah and heaps more.

Last week the Huxley School of Makeup were asked by the team at 90.9 Sea FM to take part in their short film they were making. Galey, Ross & Charli’s short film called “Prequel to the Sequel” referring it to the fifth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, that has been filming here in Queensland for the past few months.

It was an early start with a call time of 5am for our staff and current students who experienced one of their first tastes of amazing work experiences they can have while studying here. The students worked on all different types of faces, transforming all the extras into scary pirates and assisting with the main characters.

Last night (Thursday 18th June) Galey, Ross & Charli’s “Prequel to the Sequel” this year’s biggest shortest Blockbuster of the year premiered at Event Cinemas. Here is the video of the short film and some behind the scenes photos from the day.
