IMATS London 2012 - I'll be a Makeup Model! But which of these looks to choose?

Hi everyone,

It's that time of year again when IMATS comes to London town.  This year I have been so lucky, as I've been asked to be a makeup model for Make-Up Atelier Paris. To say I'm excited is putting it mildly!  

I will be there on Saturday the 4th February, I don't know my time slot yet but I'll let you know when I find out in case you would like to come say hi and watch the transformation.

I've only ever had my makeup done by someone else on a couple of occasions so this is such a treat for me and I have been given the opportunity to bring along a makeup look of my choosing, just gets better and better eh? :-)

Only problem is, which look to choose? I think I've narrowed it down between two looks, OK possibly 3!  So as I'm still deciding I thought I'd ask which look you would prefer for me, just out of curiousity.

So first up is Mila Kunis with classic winged liner makeup looks, I'm putting two pics one  from her recent Dior advert and the other from a red carpet event, both similar and in my mind have that classic chic Parisienne/European feel, neutral colours, totally my cup of tea, so here is gorgeous Mila:

The next look is totally different, more sexy, well it is on the beautiful Penélope Cruz, this one has beautiful colours and the eye liner on the top and lower lashes is more intense than I would usually go for, I'm curious to see how Makeup Atelier will recreate it on my skin tone, so this is the one that is just ahead for me at the moment:

So which look do you prefer?  I really would love to know.  Of course the hair styles really set off the looks and the clothes are the finishing touches, so whichever one I pick, I'll probably do my hair sleek and straight or volumised and bouncy, I hope!

Will you be going to IMATS?  If you are I would love to know what's on your wish list.

  1. I LOVE the second one! That is the one I would choose! :) xx
    If we really can choose any make-up look we want then I better hurry finding one for me! lol

  2. Hi Maria,

    Thanks for commenting hon. I've had quite a few tweets and Penelope is winning by a landslide, mind you she does look so incredibly stunning, totally rocks the look.

    Yes we can and I've been asked to email the look once I decide so the mua can prep beforehand, happy to do that saves me printing and risking the colours not coming out right.

    So excited to see all our transformations!


  3. Congratulations Diane.... All the looks above will look great on you! Hope you have a great time at IMATS!

  4. Thanks lovely. I'm really looking forward to the experience. Hope all is well with you Uma. x
