Vote s.a.k.DESIGNS Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year!

by Stacey 12. August 2013 21:15

The time has come to cast your vote for who you consider to be Northern Ireland's Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year! Getting Married in Northern Ireland magazine introduced this exciting new category last year and I was shocked and so excited to have been placed second! Thank you SO SO much for voting! 

Could I make it to first place this year (or is that being greedy?!)? 

If you are a s.a.k bride and were happy with the service I provided on the lead up and morning of your wedding I would really really appreciate your vote! Likewise if you are a future bride and want to cast your vote that would be amazing. I can't win this one without your support

I have been really lucky in my makeup career to date having been placed second and third in some pretty amazing and high profile competitions! And in October 2012 I won my current title of IRISH MAKEUP ARTIST OF THE YEAR! I love competiting in live competitions as it is solely about being judged on my ability by industry leaders and I don't need to pester you lol. But if you have a wee second to spare and like what I do your vote could help me get to the top this year

Thank you all the muches!!!

Face Painting Training - Belfast, Northern Ireland

by Stacey 18. April 2013 19:55

 Due to demand we have a new date for our next face painting workshop

Sunday 16th June 2013

10.15am - 3.45pm

Belvoir Activity Centre, Belfast

Face painting is a very rewarding artform whether you choose to have it as a hobby or invest in it as a business. I started face painting ten years ago with little / no guidance except for a book...I call it learning the hard way! It wasn't until I met 'real' face painters through FACE a number of years later that I was able to improve on my skills and learn some of the basics and tricks I wish I had known from the start.

This workshop will cover all the basics including health & safety and the key skills to give you a good grounding to enter the industry and the knowledge to perfect your skills through practice and experimentation.

Download the flyer for more information and give me a call to book your place!

"I couldn't recommend this workshop highly enough!!! It was an absolutely fantastic day packed with very important information and advice which has helped to give me a firm grasp of health & safety, a good solid foundation by improving basic vital skills needed in every face design and also it has helped me grow more in confidence and to believe I can be a much better painter giving my clients the best that I can" Joanne Wilson

Look forward to sharing my skills and knowledge with you!

Jessica's bridal debut

by Stacey 10. February 2013 20:50

At this time of year I love setting aside some time to work on new images. Shoots like this don't just happen, there's a lot of behind the scenes organising and everyone works so hard on the day to create what you see.

 

I feel this blog post can pretty much talk for itself so less of me and more breathtaking images.

Most importantly please take a few moments to meet the creative team that made this possible and enjoy our vision of romance meets 1920s elegance.

IRISH MAKEUP ARTIST OF THE YEAR!!!

by Stacey 4. October 2012 20:30

Yes, this is my new, very exciting title having competed at the Professional Beauty Show in Dublin on Monday! To say I am delighted is a major understatement - I am ecstatic!

I have worked very hard for this...

I chose to enter the Catwalk and Fashion makeup category where the theme was ‘Tokyo Bright Despair’. I designed storyboards, which I have attached, pulling together my inspiration and created a look that was my take on a Japanese Geisha and samurai warrior. We were told in the brief to think cute and ugly, pretty and grotesque so my interpretation had lots of colour based on Tokyo city lights at night but with a darker edge.

Here is my winning look on the amazing model Piya                                   

 

 

 

 

I would like to thank the judges for seeing my potential and presenting me with the coveted title! A massive thank you also to the sponsors for all my fantastic prizes: Kett Cosmetics, Face FX, Stargazer, Nima Brush and Karaja!

Judge, Nichola Graham (pictured above) sent this really lovely message to me following the competition "Your win is so well deserved! Your interpretation and execution of the theme blew the judges away! The world is your oyster for sure."

What an amazing experience!!!...

Now to set some even more challenging and exciting goals!

A first for Northern Ireland!

by Stacey 19. July 2011 22:54

Baby bump painting is a new craze for mums to be in Northern Ireland!

Inspired by face painters across the world I am the first person to introduce the art of bump painting in Northern Ireland! This is a unique and special experience to capture such a precious time and to be able to share with your child in years to come. It is best to paint bumps after you have reached 34 weeks. Each bump is designed specifically for you incorporating all those little aspects that make your pregnancy special.
