Have you ever wondered how the honeys at Hollyoaks are always so… how shall we say… Holy Smokes!? Well… we have. In an exclusive feature, FACEON Magazine takes a look behind the scenes and delves deep into the make-up bags of Hollyoaks star, Melissa Walton and model Iskra Lawrence.

Iskra Lawrence The Girls – Melissa Walton In 2009, Melissa secured a feature role as Loretta Jones in the UK’s teen cult series, Hollyoaks. “Loretta was a turbulent, troubled young woman. She was a stripper and pole dancer and she’d been sexually abused as a child. It was an exciting, yet extremely challenging role for me.”

Melissa Walton

To prepare for the part, Melissa visited lap dancing clubs and even enrolled in pole-dancing classes. “I loved it! It’s really good exercise and great for toning. They didn’t ask me to (Paul Marquess and Channel 4) but I even put up a pole in my living room!”

The Girls – Iskra Lawrence Iskra is a model, actress and self-confessed ‘shoeaholic’. “I’m also a baker too! Hummm… shoe-shaped cookies maybe!? My name also means ‘spark’ in Russian – another ‘interesting’ fact (she laughs).” Iskra is certainly a bright ‘spark’. She’s already worked with Asda, O2, OK Magazine, Kellogg’s and runs her own blog regarding ‘what’s in her handbag’. It’s definitely worth a look at

Photography Ursula Roxy Make-up Artist Kerri Evans Hair Stylist Ann Brightmore (Umberto Giannini) Wardrobe Polka Dot Paradise

8 Melissa Walton, Iskra Lawrence and make-up artist Kerri Evans talk us through how to achieve this ‘doll’ like, flawless look:

– we often use eyeshadows to create a highlight effect on the cheeks and brow bone. Try Bobbi Brown and Inglot

Start with Mac Studio Sculpt, a creamy, luxurious, gel-based foundation that provides medium build to high coverage with a natural satin finish. It also instantly revitalizes the skin.


To set the foundation, use LA Make Up translucent powder.


For tough blemishes and dark circles, try Cinema Secrets concealer. It’s perfect for the skin and has light pink, yellow, and coral undertones. It’s a multi-purpose palette of five, highly pigmented foundations and can be used to highlight, shade, contour and to create your own custom foundation. It spreads smoothly, provides full coverage with sheer application and ensures a soft, natural finish. Cinema Secrets comes in a clear case that snaps shut and is compact enough to stash in your bag. Colours used are: 401-71, 402-12, 404-3, 40517 and 514-60. When highlighting, you do not have to conform to the usual highlighters

For an almost ‘doll like’ effect, try the outstanding Lime Crime Countessa fluorescent lipstick. Use a similar lip pencil to create the illusion of fuller lips.

To begin with, cover the eyes with an eye primer (such as Urban Decay) this will add longevity whilst creating a smooth base for shadows. Apply MAC Fluidline on the eyelid (all the way across) with a fine, slanted brush. Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, soft finish. It’s ‘fool proof’ and smudge proof, so gives a very even dramatic eye! Continue the look with Lime Crime Magic Dust for Eyes.

Brows Try Urban Decay Naked Palette for your brows and you can mix various shades. And Voila! You’re a Hollyoaks hottie!

and they call it

Yellow With the summer sun shining, dresses, heels and make-up glowing… we’ve got yellow fever. Let a little ray of sunshine brighten up your make-up bag because summer’s here to stay! Model and make-up artist Maja Stina tells us how to get the look... “To create my base I applied concealer, foundation, setting powder and defined the brows using a brow pencil. Next, I used MAC Prep + Prime Eye in Light on the lids, followed by MAC Pigment in Softwash Grey over the upper lid and inner half of the lower lashline. I blended MAC Pigment in Dark Soul into the crease of the lids and then along the outer half of my lower lashline for depth and definition. Then, using MAC Eyeshadow in White Frost, I highlighted the inner corners of the eyes and the brow bone. Lime Crime Lipstick in New Yolk City creates the vibrant splash of yellow! Applying the lipstick to the lips, the cheek and forehead, I blended the pigment with my fingertips for a smooth finish. MAC Blusher in Warm Soul was used to create a subtle flush on the cheeks.


Photography Michael Stuart Daley Make-up artist Nina Fay Duncan Model Claire-Elizibeth Randle

I accentuated the cheek, chin, nose and Cupid’s bow by blending MAC Eyeshadow in White Frost with my fingertips again, softly highlighting each feature. To really open up the eyes, I used MAC Eye Kohl Pencil Liner in Fascinating along the waterline and applied false eyelashes for dramatic length.

To finish off the look, I added a touch of Maybelline Great Lash BIG Mascara in Blackest Black.”

Bugs Life

esents FACEON Pr

Love them or hate them, the summertime is a time for bugs (but it’s ok, these are just plastic). FACeON Magazine talks with make-up artist Paje Pokjowy to discuss exactly how the make-up influenced this entire set – doesn’t it just bug you when magazines don’t do that!?

Look 1

“To create a flawless base, apply foundation using a foundation brush evenly over the face, I used Inglot Cream Foundation 38. With a small-medium concealer brush, use Inglot Cream Concealer 67 for areas that might need more coverage (under the eyes, around the nose and chin) to even out skin tone, blemishes and dark shadows. To set the base, apply a touch of Inglot Loose Powder 14 using a large powder brush. For the eyes, apply the nude Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow 14 over entire eyelid as well as under eye area, gently blending into the skin with your fingertips.

Next, apply white eyeliner to bottom water line to really open up the eyes. The eyebrows are accentuated using a firm angle brush with the orange Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow 28 to slightly exaggerate the shape. Apply Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies mascara and false eyelashes to the upper lash line, perfecting the edges with Physicians Formula black liquid eyeliner. To contour the apples of the cheeks I used Inglot AMC Face Blush 53 in a “C” shape from the temples to apples of cheeks. For the lips, I used an orange lip liner to outline the top lip and then filled it in with a vibrant orange Inglot Lipstick in 259. To complete the look, glaze the lips with Annabelle Le Gloss lip gloss in superstar.”

Look 2 “With a foundation brush apply foundation over face and as before, use a small-medium concealer brush to cover up any shadows under the eyes, around nose and chin. With a large powder brush, apply loose powder to set the base. On the eyes, apply green loose pigment with a flat tapered shadow brush over entire eyelid. Apply teal pigment with same shadow brush from inner eye outwards, blending towards temples and using a clean blending brush, blend both colours together.

The eyebrows are accentuated with bronze pigment using a small contour brush, defining the shape from front of brows downwards, towards bridge of the nose. Blend well. Apply a thick coat of mascara to the top and bottom lashes and apply false lashes of your choice. Finish the eyes with a thick line of electric blue liquid liner on the top lash line, then use a black Kohl pencil on bottom of eye and inside water line. To contour the face, apply a light to medium shade of blush from the temples to apples of cheeks. Finish the look by applying a light nude shimmery gloss to the lips but making sure not to press the lips together.”

Look 3 “Create your base as before, using a foundation brush to apply foundation and refining with concealer where needed. Set with loose powder. Add a flush of colour to the cheeks with pink blush.

Add false lashes of your choice to the top lash line and

Morning Dew As the seasons change the summer green leaves will very soon flush with rich golden tones, thus our skin regime and make-up palettes should also adjust.

FACEON Magazine chats with make-up artist, Carla Levy. She tells us how to look our very best, whatever the weather! “After months of being told how to look natural, bronzed and sun-kissed, why not spice up your make-up bag with the bold and the daring, the dark and


defining, those alluring textures and sumptuously dramatic tones‌? Experiment with metallic eyeshadows and loose pigments to create a subtle wash of colour or a layered, intense shimmering hue. Pigments such as Old Gold and Blue Brown by MAC can be used wet to create a bold effect on the eyes, or if you want to retain your summer skin a little longer, use

a lighter shade in gold or pink with a powder brush to create a subtle cheekbone highlight. The autumn season is a time to repair from the summer damage and to feed the skin with nourishing moisturisers and facial treatments. Apply a rich night cream such as the Ren Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream. Allow the cream to work its wonders while you sleep and in the morning your skin will be dewy, youthful and rejuvenated. If your skin is really suffering, I strongly recommend Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, a skincare classic that relieves dryness, scarring and irritated skin. It is also a popular alternative to lip balm as it not only effectively heals chapped lips but also provides a subtle tinted lip-gloss effect. Remember, it’s not just what you put on your skin that changes its appearance but also what nourishes from within. Summer is hotter and we generally drink more water, so be sure to drink just as much in the cooler seasons to flush out any toxins and to stay hydrated. Above all, it’s about having beautiful skin; the canvas has to be clean before you start to paint!” Make-up & Hair Artist Carla Levy Model Lauren Bunney

White Witch FACEON Magazine takes an exclusive trip to sunny Malta to catch up with Photographer, Julian Knight and Make-up Artist, Ruby S Balthazar. The pair tell us all about their recent ‘White Witch’ series, their ideology behind the shoot and exactly how the make-up was applied. Ruby says: “As a make-up artist, it’s crucial to understand the ideas of the Art Director and Photographer. Make-up alone should never be the main focal point in any shoot. Personally, my love for painting faces was derived from my love of painting portraits on canvas. Photographers are ‘painters’ too – yet they paint with light and shadows. The make-up artist can interact with the photographer’s work and accentuate the shadows to enhance the best features of the model and to even reshape the structure of the face. In the ‘White Witch’ shoot, I wanted my skin tone to blend with the pale background and white dress. To achieve this, I mixed Lancome’s Photogenic Lumessence Foundation with a white foundation by MAC – this gave me the perfect texture and coverage. It’s important to stress at this point that it is crucial to prep the skin prior to applying any make-up. Failure to do this properly can have dire consequences. Next, you may notice that my eyebrows are bleached – this is an important element of the look. When contouring the eyes, my personal favorite product is Barry M Dazzle Dust. The best word I can use to describe it… ‘sheerness’!


As opposed to creating a shadow on the outside of the lid, try to create a shadow on the bone (under the inner side of the eyebrow) and all the way down to the inner side of the eyelid. To give the eyes an open effect, create a shadow under the lower eyelash. I added very natural false eyelashes by MAC – the more natural the better, as thick mascara will close the eye, defeating the object. To achieve flawless white eyebrows, dip your brush into a small amount of MAC White Foundation and glide your brush through. Then, using a tiny eye brush, dip into white eyeshadow and dab gently onto the eyebrows. The next big step is to contour the face. This, again, is crucial as you can reshape the entire structure of a model’s face. For this shoot, I used a dark brown colour (any) and applied it directly under my cheekbones. When the camera and light hits the face, the illusion of a perfect bone structure can be achieved. From here, dip your brush into a light pink/peach colour and dab lightly on the cheeks. Start from the outside (slightly further down from your nose) and continue from the dark brown colour. My top tip! I like to use Dior Forever Compact Powder underneath the eyes (where the eyeshadow ends) as well as over any shiny parts of the model’s skin. Try to envisage where the light will hit the model’s face. It’s not too difficult to achieve and will give perfect coverage. Once you’ve tried this and got it right, you’ll never go without this product! And finally, the lips. I used MAC Lady Danger and dabbed a small amount of lipgloss to break the overall matt effect. Voila!” The girls tell us that this set was barely retouched. “It’s important that when people view the final product, they spare a thought to how good the true make-up actually was and to look for tell-tale signs of overediting/retouching. The word ‘Artist’ is in our title – and that’s exactly what we should be.” Photographer Julian Knight Art Direction, Model, Make-up & Styling Ruby S Balthazar

Step by step guide Step 1

“Welcome to our ‘Brush Strokes’ series. The first task is to prep the face and body. We used MAC Strobe Cream all over the face and body to give that iridescent glow before Airbrush.”

Step 2

“Using an Iwata Smart Jet Airbrush and MAC NW25 (Micronized Airbrush Formula) we sprayed Jessica’s face and body and these products provide a flawless finish.”

Step 3

“To highlight the planes of the face, we used MAC (129) Powder Blush Brush with MAC Pink Opal Pigment. This created an opalescence highlight.”

Step 4

“The next step is to contour the inner eye (below the brow). To create definition and depth, we used a MAC (224) brush with Bamboo eyeshadow.”

Step 5

“MAC Bare Lash was used on the eyelashes and eyebrows to remove the emphasis from the eyelash and eyebrows.”

Lots of people have issues with their body which can affect their self-esteem. Self-esteem is all about how much people value themselves and is important because feeling good about yourself can affect how you act, control your behaviour and how much you enjoy life! So let’s dive right in. What is Body Image? Body image involves our perception, imagination, emotions, and physical sensations of and about our bodies. It’s ever changing; sensitive to mood, environment, and physical experience. It’s not based on fact. It’s psychological and influenced by how others judge us. To put it bluntly, it’s learned. So when did we begin to measure our self worth by numbers on a scale? How

Try MAC Studio Sculpt (SPF 15) and MAC Surf Baby bronzing stick.” Blush: “To create a healthy glow, again, try MAC Surf Baby (My Paradise Cheek Powder). Best described as a coral blush with a gold overspray, it can be used alone as a highlight or combined for a perfect sparkling affect. Apply to the apples of the cheeks in a ‘c’ shape (vertically from the temples).” Eyes: “Using liquid eyeliner, contour your eyes with a slight 60s flick (outwards toward the edge) and apply a smoky effect using a dark colour. Contrast this with MAC eyeshadow (in Frosty Champagne).” Lips: “For ultimate envy, try MAC’s (Dark Red) Viva Glam range.”
