It’s finally spring! After months of winter darkness, it’s nice to see the light and feel a new burst of energy. Make Up Store celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2011, marking another important milestone for the company and its founder Mika Liias. He had a dream about a world of colours, and his dream continues to become reality, with 200 Make Up Store boutiques now in 23 different countries throughout the world. You can read more about the Make Up Store success story on page 24. Spring also marks a time when you should update your makeup bag. So it’s out with the old and in with new products and colours suited to the new season. Did you know, for example, that you should have two shades of foundation? One darker and one lighter, which you should blend together depending on the season. Remember to always try out your foundation on your neck to find the the right tone. Visit one of our stores and our fantastic staff will help you negotiate the jungle of foundations to find the right one for you. The best thing about spring is the launch of our new look, Pixel. Fun and vibrant, Pixel’s artistic and graphical style is this season’s trend setter. Find out more about Pixel on page 2. It’s a look that requires some technique so I’m planning to sign up for a group course to make sure I can recreate it with no difficulties. A group course is a great way to spend time and have fun with some friends – why not make it part of a birthday party, night out or hen party? It’s a guaranteed evening packed with laughter and knowledge. That’s the reason Make Up Store exists – to pass on our knowledge and at the same time inspire you. Remember, knowledge is power! Enjoy!

The HISTORY OF MAKEUP IN DIFFERENT CULTURES
The history of m akeup
in different cultures.
From first being used for hunting and during warfare, to becoming the third most lucrative industry in the U.S.; makeup has evolved immeasurably in the last 7,000 years. TEXT: Johan AugustiN
The first colours: black and brown, were part of the nature, and used as camouflage during hunting. Different coloured mud meant that red and yellow were the shades that followed. In 5,000 B.C., men and women wore makeup while at war in Mesopotamia (now called Iraq). The Egyptians were one of the first to start wearing powder; using iron-rich yellow earth to protect against the sun. Egyptian women applied coal around their eyes, and used a mixture of green copper and lead to create a turquoise eye shadow. Blush was made from pulverized mud, and was used to colour lips and cheeks. Their hands and feet were made pink with henna.
”Egyptian women applied coal around their eyes, and used a mixture of green copper and lead to create a turquoise eye shadow.” At Egyptian excavations, archaeologists have found spoons, palettes, bowls and pounders, which were used to mix and grind the makeup. Mirrors, combs, curling irons, and boxes of charcoal pencils and eye
shadows have also been found. Higher society Egypti ans covered their bodies with scented oils, and Cleopa tra is believed to have bathed in ass’ milk. In ancient Rome, a thick layer of white lead was used on the face, throat and shoulders. Wealthy women had female slaves who managed their body and hair. And bear fat was used to create perfume, and colours were made from carbon compounds, ants’ eggs and squashed flies. Only the women of ancient Rome used makeup, whilst the men groomed their beards, hair and nails. In China, rice starch was used as powder – a custom later exported to Japan and Europe. Geishas made themselves up with layers of pink and white. In Tokyo the pink was applied first, and vice versa in Kyoto. To create the porcelain-look skin, a short-haired brush was used. Then blush was applied on the cheeks, eye lids, and nose. To finish, white rice powder was applied to the eyebrows and eyelashes. Queen Elizabeth I of England typified the pale look in the country during the middle of the 16th Century. She M | 7
used white lead and masks of egg white, ground ala baster, and mud to enhance her natural paleness. Women shaved off their eyebrows and painted blue veins on their temples; an influence from Venice. Pale skin was considered beautiful – it was only the common workers who were tanned. A lot of different tricks were used to try to block the sun’s rays, and the Queen encouraged questions about her appearance. She combined her pale skin with red lips and cheeks. Eye makeup was considered vulgar.
”Eye makeup was considered vulgar.” At the beginning of the 20th century, it was primarily theatre actors and actresses who wore makeup in the Europe and the U.S. France was the first country to embrace makeup, with lots of small businesses making mixtures in their basements. This was despite many of the mixtures damaging the skin. European and American consumers started to buy makeup at stores after the discovery of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun in 1922.

Dannii has released a number of albums throughout the years, including a greatest hits collection. More recently, she has come to prominence as a judge on the popular British TV talent show, The X Factor. TEXT: Charmaine Ertas, PHoto: CHRIS COLLS
Congratulations on winning the recent X Factor final with your act Matt Cardle. How did that feel?
heavy makeup everywhere.
I was so happy for Matt. He had been sick for the last three weeks of the series and had pushed his voice to the point we were worried he would do permanent damage to it, but seeing that winning smile on his face made all the stress worth it. He’s an incredible singer and I hope his first Christmas number one sets the scene for his forthcoming solo album.
2010 has been a busy year for you: the book launch; your clothing and fragrance line Project D; The X Factor; and becoming a mother for the first time. How have you coped?
Lots of laughter! The funny thing is, I try and do it all because I love what I do, but getting the balance of work and family is a constant juggle – not to mention splitting that over two hemispheres!
What advice would you give to budding pop stars?
You need to get out there and do what you do. You may get discovered doing a small gig, on MySpace or on a show like The X Factor. Your clothes, hair and makeup on the X Factor came under constant scrutiny from the press. How did you cope with the pressure of always having to look flawless with all eyes on you?
I was happy to just be able to get out on stage without a nappy stuck to my shoe and baby vomit down my shoulder! I love the fact that we get to wear beautiful gowns and call it work! Twenty amazing frocks in 10 weeks was just a slice of Cinderella heaven. Christian Vermaak is my stylist for hair and makeup for all the shows, and we love creating different looks to suit the dress. This year we felt it would be less about the hair and more about the makeup and jewellery. Our favourite was gold eye shadow with big chandelier-style earrings. What makeup rules do you swear by? Do you have any top tips for looking ultra glam that you could share with M Mag readers?
Firstly, keep your skin looking clear by drinking plenty of water. Keep makeup as thin and sheer as possible. Try and highlight your best feature, rather than putting
bitha; two girlfriends who love clothes and beautiful things. We believe there are enough dresses in the world to go around if all the manufacturers closed today and never made another dress, but we just design stuff we both like, and hopefully other girls like it too. We are different shapes and sizes so between both our designs, the label suits most shapes.
”I have always loved makeup and love applying it.”
Make Up Store is a Swedish brand available in all four corners of the globe. When you want to get away from it all, where do you go to relax and find peace?
If you only had 10 minutes to get ready, what makeup would you make sure you apply before leaving the house, and why?
I can always escape to my parents’ house to be spoilt. I love summer holidays in Ibiza, which is where I met (boyfriend) Kris, and we love holidaying in Queensland in Australia – snorkelling on the reef chasing sharks is wild.
Eyelash curlers and mascara. It really opens the face. Then I would always have a cover up and some super sheer foundation. How important is makeup to your look?
What made you want to write your autobiography, My Story?
I had done an in-depth interview with Piers Morgan and it was actually so liberating to go back over things that had happened in my life that I wanted to expand on that and put it all in a book. I cover my early days growing up in Australia, to the whole roller-coaster ride of the entertainment industry and lots of personal stories.
”I absolutely love the variety of lashes available at Make Up Store.” You’re always streets ahead in the style stakes; tell us about your clothing line Project D. What’s your inspiration for the brand?
Project D has been created by me and my friend TaM | 9
I have always loved makeup and love applying it – it’s kind of meditative. I get to work with amazing makeup artists and learn the tricks of application by watching their every move. Mostly, I wear very little in my day-today life away from all the cameras, but I love to get fully glammed up for an event. What are you favourite Make Up Store products?
I absolutely love the variety of lashes available at Make Up Store, it’s a great way to change up your look. A few single lashes add some drama to your makeup, which is great for an evening event. What’s next for ’Team Minogue’?
Australia’s Got Talent and then more Project D!

It started in a basement with a dream. Fifteen years later, there are more than 200 of Mika Liias’ Make Up Store boutiques in 23 different countries. TEXT: maria cederblom, PHOTO: KAMbiz
Your goal was to create a world of colour. How does it feel to be living your dream?
Amazing! The journey from my basement through to today has been educational and rewarding from the beginning. I started with nothing besides a dream. It proves you can make it with a positive outlook, stubbornness and faith in yourself. Even though we are one of the most successful and fastest growing companies in the Nordics, I think it’s dangerous to sit back and relax – you’re on thin ice as an entrepreneur then. My creativity, curiosity and strong will to improve continues to drive me and the company to new heights.
”..you can make it with a positive outlook, stubbornness and faith in yourself.” When you look back on the last 15 years, what are your best memories?
I have a lot of great memories, and many more to come. I remember the feeling when we opened our first store 15 years ago; it was an amazing experience. All of my colleagues who started on this journey with me are still a part of the company. As a successful entrepreneur yourself, who are your role models?
Ingvar Kamprad (IKEA founder) is an inspiration, but my colleagues and store employees inspire me just as much. What’s your driving force?
My colleagues: they give me so much in return. Finding solutions to problems also triggers something in me. Do you ever relax, or do you eat, sleep and breathe Make Up Store?
I relax on my travels, and I love my greenhouse at home. What are you most proud of?
I’m proud of the whole concept. We’re foremost an
educational brand, so our makeup courses are very close to my heart – if you haven’t tried a course yet, you have to! Everyone can learn how to apply makeup. You can take a course a number of times throughout the year to suit the season or occasion. I’m also proud of our inspiring staff who take care of our customers with the upmost consideration and service. Every day, I receive emails from satisfied customers that praise our staff for always going that extra mile.
”..together, we can improve the lives of many children” new products, and we’re expanding the company at mega speed. M-Magazine continues to inspire people all over the world; our club’s expanding; and the economy is starting to stabilise again after the recession. Anything’s possible if you only believe in yourself.
”I see a bright future for Make Up Store!” Your interest in others has led to your involvement in a number of different charity projects; tell us more about your current one, Project Playground.
In 2009, we developed the eye shadow ’Charity’ to help support Noaks Ark and their important research into HIV and Aids. That resulted in a donation of more than half a million Swedish kronor (about $75,000), which was great. This year, we’re working with Project Playground, which was founded by Frida Vesterberg and Sofia Hellqvist. The project is based in Langa, one of the many townships in South Africa. Most of the children living there don’t have anything. At Project Playground, the children are given a sanctuary from their poverty, and are given the chance to just be children. They can choose to participate in sports, arts, or play with other children. Project Playground also caters for handicapped children at the center. Together we’ve developed the lipgloss ’Playground’. Every penny goes directly to their important work, and and hopefully, together, we can improve the lives of many children. Finally, how does the future look for Make Up Store?
I see a bright future for Make Up Store! We’ve always been a cutting edge brand, and will continue to be. We develop constantly and have lots of exciting ideas. The range of products will be updated with thrilling M | 25

M aria Baykal,
Emilie Lindberg has just completed a 10-week course.
Maria Baykal has just finished the 20-week course, and enjoyed her experience.
Olle Johansson, Make Up Store’s head makeup artist, and has been the IMC’s head teacher since the spring of 1991.
What are you going to do this spring?
”I would like to freelance as a makeup artist for TV and the theatre,” said Emilie, who has just been hired as a Make Up Store shop assistant. ”I didn’t need the character part since I’ll be focusing on beauty.” Emilie said that the course is intense, but opens up lots of opportunities for those who take it.
It was very educational,” Maria said. ”I think your should do the 20 weeks so you get the character part as well.” Maria added that the best things about the school were the teachers and the chance to make valuable industry contacts.
Do you have any special memories from your time studying at the IMC?
We were the first school. There wasn’t a makeup school in Sweden at the time.” Olle said. ”In the beginning, model agencies and photographers were suspicious of us – they didn’t think we were serious, but that changed with time,” Olle continued. ”Soon they were convinced about our seriousness.” Olle is one of four teachers at the IMC in Stockholm; he has two colleagues teaching in Gothenburg and three in Malmö. The schools run three classes a day during the week: one each in the morning, afternoon and evening. There are also classes every other weekend.
”Olle singing and dancing! Everyone that you meet that also has a degree from IMC asks the same question: ’is Olle still the head teacher?’ The teachers are the best thing about the course. They teach with passion, are committed to what they do and keep us upto-date with trends.”
Do you wa nt to become a makeup artist? We offer 10 and 20-week courses.

”I have improved my teaching skills over the years,” said Olle. ”You learn what’s important and you stick to the core principles.” Every now and again, men do attend the classes, often with the aim of learning to take better photographs of makeup, studying how to make masks or learning how to create scars and wounds. Three former IMC students have earned the prestigious makeup artist prize: The Elle award. Another former student, Linda Öhrström, was Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden’s makeup artist for her wedding day, which was watched by millions all over the globe. It takes 10 weeks to complete the IMC’s beauty course, which is extended to 20 weeks when the character makeup for theatre and film is included.

Getting arou nd Walking is a great way to see Berlin, but remember that the distances between the districts can be huge. Locals use public transport, with the underground and overground train routes linking the city like a huge spider web. Buses are available round the clock and are an easy way to get around. Tickets are available at stations, as well as on the buses and the trains. Remember to validate your ticket before departure – the controllers can be as hard on tourists as Berliners. Travelling by taxi is another cheap way of getting around.

MAKE UP STORE STORE OF THE YEAR, 2010-2011
2010-2011 STORE OF THE YEAR NORRLANDSG. STOCKHOLM SWEDEN
MAKE UP STORE STORE OF THE YEAR, 2010-2011 Tell us about your background.
I’m originally from Småland in Sweden. I was really interested in sports when I was young, especially basketball, and I played in some of the best leagues in Sweden. After years of intense training, my interest switched to fashion, which I pursued alongside my school work for many years. That’s how my awareness of service, colour and shapes grew. How did you first come into contact with Make Up Store?
After high school, a family friend recommended that I go to the International Make Up Center to try to get my makeup artist qualifications. She said that no other school could compete; this was the school to go to if you wanted to become a good makeup artist. So I packed my bags and moved to Stockholm. A couple of weeks into the course we got to practice in shops and I got stationed at Make Up Store’s on Drottninggatan in Stockholm. One day we were fully booked with private makeup lessons and there were a lot of customers, but one of the shop’s normal staff didn’t show up to work. The store manager asked me to hold two lessons, and after that I was hooked! I’ve been working at Make Up Store since 2005 and running the shop on Norrlandsgatan since 2007.
What’s your driving force, and how do you run a successful store?
I’m incredibly happy to be able to pursue my passion full-time, together with people that I really like. It doesn’t matter how strong you are as a leader, if none of the other staff is at the same level, then you won’t succeed. To lead a group successfully takes teamwork. Good leadership is the key to success. We have an amazing team, which keeps getting stronger and stronger. We’ve never been as solid as now. We’re loyal to one and other and talk a lot about everything. We have regular meetings where everybody gets to contribute with thoughts and ideas, which constantly makes us better colleagues and makeup artists. Another key to our success, is that we do fun stuff together to improve our relationships.
I was artistic and creative from an early age. At school, art classes were the most fun; I’ve spent many hours in front of a sketch pad. I was always the one who did my friends’ makeup for parties. I’ve always known that I wanted to educate and guide people, so Make Up Store’s concept was the perfect fit!
Give us your best makeup tip.
Luxury peeling – blend Skin Serum with Cleansing Powder; you’ll get a velvety smooth peel which makes your skin read for makeup. What are your three favourite Make Up Store products?
The Velvet Creme is amazing to start with. Wonder Powder, which smooths out any imperfections. Finally, Mixing Liquid, which gives me the opportunity to vary the colour of my eyeliner, and fixes everything! Finally, what’s your best Make Up Store memory?
How do you succeed?
Drive, humility, team spirit, and joy are the biggest demands I make of myself and the team. That’s what it takes to create a successful store with returning customers. If you don’t have fun at work, you won’t give 120% of yourself to every customer who enters the store. What’s the best thing about running a Make Up Store?
Had you worked with makeup before? When did you realise that working with makeup was what you wanted to do?
see the possibilities every day. Set a good example for your staff and set goals; develop and encourage them. Remember to delegate; your staff will grow with responsibility. Lastly, remember to have fun!
The gratitude and response from the customers and my staff: Everything from finding a suitable lipstick for a customer who has been looking for the right products for years, to getting a thank you from your staff for inspiring and developing them. What advice would you give others who would like to start or run a Make Up Store?

I had an older lady for a private lesson a few years back. She had never used makeup before, and complained that she’d been told for her entire life she looked angry. Her coarse features led people to view her in a negative way. After some brow plucking and an hour of makeup magic, the result was a lady with a softer look. She looked both younger and happier. When I asked if she was pleased, she started to cry – she didn’t stop until all of the makeup was gone! There I was with a very happy customer with no makeup left on and long stripes of mascara running down her cheeks. She apologised and explained that she’d been so beautiful during those moments, that it made her cry. Today she’s a regular customer at Make Up Store and has everything from us!

how to apply GROOMING
GROOMING There are a few shortcuts that can help you to start the day feeling fresh and looking awake. CK CREME THE BLA
STEP 1 Skin care is as essential for men as for women. Go with good quality products which are suited to your needs. Men tend to have more oily skin than women and therefore need a hydrating facial cream. A cleanser and a toner are other essentials.
3. COMPACT POWDER BEIGE
STEP 2 A cooling eye cream is a perfect way to reduce dark circles after late nights and early mornings.
STEP 3 A concealer should be a part of every man’s toiletry bag; it can easily hide blemishes or cover up dark circles. Apply a dot of it under the eye, and then even it out with your fingers. STEP 4 Foundation is used for making the skin tone even. Use a foundation brush to achieve a natural look. There are lots of different types of foundation to suit everyone. Ask our excellent staff to find the right product and shade for you.
STEP 5 Your eyebrows frame your face. The painless way of keeping them neat is Make Up Store’s Eye Brow Razor. A tip is to have your eyebrows plucked by us, so afterwards you only have to follow the shape of the eyebrows already there.
STEP 6 Mens’ foreheads, noses, and chins are prone to become oily throughout the day. Apply a mattifying and transparent powder on those areas with a large powder brush and your skin will be matte all day.
HAIRCARE SYSTEM MUDDY
STEP 7 Sculpt your perfect hairstyle with any of Make Up Store’s waxes. Muddy is recommended for a matte look which keeps your hair in place.
STEP 8 Ready to take on the world!

Mikas makeup tip gorgeous daytime look in five minutes a gorgeous daytime look has a nice natural base. Define your face with some blush on the cheeks and use a soft eyeliner on the eyes, lots of mascara, and a nice gloss on the lips. The quick and easy way to fake a tan The best way to fake a tan is to use a bronzing powder or gel. What I like the most is mixing a bronzing gel with a day cream: put a little bit of both in your hand, mix it and put in on your face. If you want more intensity you can use a bronzing powder. Apply it with a 30% covering brush for a soft effect. The more you put on, the more tanned you become of course.
INTERVIEW PROFILE NETHERLANds
MIKA van Leeuwen,
is a young talented hair and makeup artist from The Netherlands. Despite of his young age he´s already worked with the biggest shows and his career flourish. The stars line up to work with him and his driving force is his love of makeup. TEXT: Maria Cederblom
When did you know that you wanted to be a hair and makeup artist?
I started styling my girlfriends’ Barbie dolls at a very young age. A few years later I stole my mother’s makeup, and I touched and felt what it did. When I was 12, I knew what makeup was and I knew I was destined to make people more beautiful. At first I started trying makeup out on myself. I was like a big doll, and it looked awful of course, but it did give me the feeling, the love and the drive that I needed to be where I am now. What kind of education do you have?
I wasn’t very good at theory lessons at high school; I needed to be creative and do something with my hands and connect with people. It wasn’t really working for me at high school until one of my teachers said to me: ’Mika, what is it that you really like?’ I told her that I wanted to make people feel good about themselves. The teacher and I did some research and found that if I wanted to be an all-rounder, it was best to start with hair, before moving on to makeup later on. I started working at a beauty salon when I was 15. I became a successful hair stylist very quickly, thanks to what I learnt at the Rob Peetoom Academy. Within a few years I had eight qualifications, and on paper I was an all-round hair and makeup artist.
”I needed to be creative and do something with my hands and connect with people.” Would you recommend working as an assistant before starting your own business?
Absolutely. After education you need experience. I think that experience is the most important thing in this bu-
siness. You can have all the qualifications in the world but you need to work. You learn the most in practice and by observing experienced professionals at work. I’m a fast learner but I’m still learning every day and trying to absorb every experience. The best thing about being an assistant is that you get a taste of what it is like to be an artist. I watched and tried to use everything that I saw, and found that there’s always something new to learn.
”Live the life you love, and love the life you live.”
everything. I love soft lines, and to create those you need good brushes. Who do you dream of working with?
I would love to work with David La Chapelle. He’s the most amazing photographer. He steps out of the comfort zone and dares to do it all in his own way, no matter what people say about it. He always rocks his pictures no matter what the situation is. Which makeup artists inspire you?
How long have you been in the industry?
Chaz Dean. I love his ambition and I admire the love he has for doing makeup. I can relate to him.
I’ve been in the industry since I was 15 years old. At the moment I have eight years of experience.
Do you live by a motto?
What’s the best thing about being a makeup artist?
Making people feel good about themselves. Whenever someone has a bad day I can turn it all around. When you are comfortable in your skin, you feel that you can conquer the world. What are your three favourite Make Up Store products?
Eyedusts. Not a specific colour but just the product itself. It’s one of the most amazing products from Make Up Store; it’s shiny, it’s young and it works on everybody. It’s not just a shiny eye shadow, it gives a special touch to your eye makeup by making the whole look more intense. Liquid Foundation. It’s the thinnest foundation there is. Because it doesn’t give 100% coverage, you can get a natural look, meaning you only have to use a little to look radiant and shine. Make Up Store Brushes. Professional Brushes are the base for good makeup, whether you’re aiming for a basic look or something extra. The way you apply makeup means M | 75
Live the life you love, and love the life you live. I believe you control 90% of your own life. You decide where it’s going. Stand behind every choice you make and love whatever comes out of it. What exciting projects do you have coming up?
I will advise women how to look beautiful in just a few easy steps, on different platforms like television and in magazines. I’ll also be working backstage during Amsterdam International Fashion Week (AIFW). What do you like to do when you have a day off work?
My work is my passion. I love everything regarding fashion and beauty. On my day off I love to shop, even if it’s just window shopping. Also, looking at beautiful articles, seeing what’s hot and happening, reading magazines. I also love eating; I enjoy having dinner with friends in the finest restaurants. And last but not least, singing in the shower. I find it very relaxing and I think I sound so good in the shower!

INTERVIEW PROFILE THAILAND
Black Vanillas favourite products
INTERVIEW PROFILE THAILAND Fashion seems to be important to you. Explain what modern pop fashion is.
Bank: Basically, it’s pop music converted into fashion. Dome: Music has a vision, so does fashion. It’s fashion that follows the feeling and the mood of a song. What can your fans expect from your latest album? Bank: This album is different because it has a new rhythm and we collaborated with an incredible rap artist, which was amazing. We really hope our fans will like it as much as we do.
”When I was younger I always wanted to take singing lessons but it was too expensive so I never got the chance.” What characterizes Black Vanilla?
Bank: Musicality and the fact that we like fashion. Good songs and handsome men with fashion interests. When it comes to your personalities, how are you similar and what are your differences?
A: We are very different; the love of music is what keeps us together.
Dome, as the oldest of the brothers, do you take responsibility for the others? Dome: No, I don’t have to. They are very responsible and mature so they manage without me. But I am responsible for gathering us all for creative meetings. Who cares the most about their appearance?
Bank: Graph – he’s our fashion guru. When someone has a question about clothes or trends, they turn to him. You’ve been successful since your debut single was released back in 2007. What ambitions do you have remaining for the future?
Bank: I’d like to start a music school where everyone can afford to participate. When I was younger I always wanted to take singing lessons but it was too expensive so I never got the chance. Dome: I’d like to embrace this opportunity I’ve got by continuing to work hard, because a career in music isn’t a given. You started your career whilst you were still teenagers. How would you say that has influenced you?
A: We definitely grew up fast and learned how to handM | 87
le and compromise with others. What do you do to continue to look good even when you’re stressed or under pressure?
Bank: I try to sleep as much as possible. Then I drink plenty of water and swim. Graph: I try to rest a lot and I’m very careful about getting my vitamins. I eat good food in general and exercise. A: Lots of water and sleep is important to me. Then I play golf whenever I can. Dome: I play soccer and golf since I love sports. I also use a facial cream to hydrate my skin, and I take vitamin supplements.
”...the love of music is what keeps us together.” What are your favourite Make Up Store products?
Graph: We love Face Mist, which reenergizes our tired skin during tours. The hair gel Wetty is great for shaping hairstyles with. And we always use Make Up Store’s shampoo and conditioner.

how to apply DAY MAKEUP
DAY MAKEUP BLUSH Apricot Sorbet
step 1 For an even result, start by applying foundation with a foundation brush. After that, use concealer where needed on blemishes, red areas, and to hide dark circles. Finish by fixing your makeup with a powder that’ll keep your complexion matte throughout the day. STEP 2 Work a yellow eye shadow with a large powder brush onto your forehead, cheeks and chin. This will add warmth, lustre and liveliness to your skin.
ICE CREME TIME
STEP 3 Use colours such as brown, gold, and bronze to enhance the eye and give it depth. Apply with a brush made of natural hair, suited for eye shadows that are easy to blend.
STEP 4 Shade your cheekbones using a brown blush. Apply it under the cheekbone with a smaller blush brush to define your features.
STEP 5 Pluck your eyebrows and use a colour that matches your hair colour. Use a brow colour and an angled brush for the best result.
TRI BROW COLOR
STEP 6 It’s time for blush. Colours such as coral and apricot flatter Asian skin. Smile and apply the blush at the apple of the cheek.
STEP 7 An eyeliner which is applied on both upper and lower part of the eye gives depth to the eye. First, use the eye pencil and then blend it with an eyeliner brush to avoid sharp lines.
M | 106
STEP 8 To make the eyeliner durable all day, fix the eyeliner and apply some eye shadow on top. Black mascara that both gives volume and length is preferable. STEP 9 Finish with a coral lipgloss and you’ll have a great day look!
MAKEUP TIP, Blend eye shadow with Mixing Liquid, which you then apply onto a black eyelash. Dramatic yet playful.

Four years ago Marcus Larsson started a clothing brand named after the small Swedish village where he was brought up. Now Ljung’s suave style and vibrant colours look set to take on the world. TEXT: Johan Augustin, PHOTO: Olof Händén
Where do you find your inspiration?
”Whilst I was creating one of my collections, I only listened to the Pet Shop Boys. I really like the breadth of their music. Even though they’ve turned 50 and sold millions of albums, they’ve never stopped developing, experimenting and have constantly delivered new material with new sounds to their fans.” ”Commercialism and art don’t have to be at opposite poles. In the same way the Pet Shop Boys create music, I want to create clothes,” said Larsson. While Ljung’s autumn collection featured uniforms, tweed and knitted garments, the spring 2011 collection will be a total colour explosion. ”Think lego and billiard balls and you’ll get the picture,” Larsson said. Ljung is owned and controlled by Larsson and Christoffer Nyberg, who handles the administrative part of the company. The clothes are designed for young, fashionable men. There are now about 70 Ljung resellers in Sweden, Norway and Germany, and Larsson said he dreams that one day Ljung can grow into a global brand. ”Right now we’re planning a big launch in England. It’s an exciting market and it seems to have a huge interest in young, stylish brands. ” When you do fashions shows, how do you like your models to look?
”I always want my models to look somewhere between natural and unnatural. It’s important that the guys’ characteristics doesn’t disappear.” ”I always work with the makeup artist Sara Denman.
”In the same way the Pet Shop Boys create music, I want to create clothes.” She makes the guys look as fresh as possible – no matter what they did the night before. ” Do you have any good grooming tips?
”Use a good moisturizer and sunscreen in the summer. Ask staff in the shops for advice and tips.” If he could choose anyone in the world to dress, it would have been The Beatles, Larsson said, because their jackets weren’t well fitted. Larsson always wears his own designs, which he decribes as casual stylish. ”I have a pretty large wardrobe and it’s constantly changing. I test the whole collection myself. I want to know how the fabric feels against my body, and how it looks after washing and everyday use.” What do you typically wear on a Sunday afternoon?
”At home on a Sunday I look the same as usual but maybe my hair is a bit more wild.” When the first collection was released in 2007, shirts and trousers were the focus. Today there’s more variation. ”Each collection includes over 130 pieces with everything from t-shirts, shirts and sweatshirts, to suits and outer garments.” You said: ”Everyone should be able to afford our clothes.” Do Ljung live up to your statement?
”No, my clothes aren’t cheap. Everyone can’t afford to M | 115
buy everything in my collection, but most can buy something. It’s important for me that you don’t have to be loaded to buy my clothes.” ”I want a guy wearing a garment from Ljung to feel more handsome than he really is. A guy emailed me the other day and told me that he got more women wearing my clothes than other brands – but he used more controversial language than that! I’m not sure it’s statistically accurate but I’ll take it as a compilment.” Is your biggest dream to win the prestigious ”Guldknappen” award, or for Ljung to be available to buy in 100 countries?
”Guldknappen is a prestigious prize that I would be proud to win, but if I had to choose, without a doubt I’d prefer to be launched in 100 countries. But I’ll never prioritise money over designs. If we sell for hundreds of millions or a couple of billion, it’s not important to me. But of course I want Ljung to become huge – really huge. ”
”At home on a Sunday I look the same as usual but maybe my hair is a bit more wild.” Do you use makeup? If so, what are your three favourites?
”I hardly ever wear makeup, but I’ve found a great product called Bye Bye Puff. It’s an eye cream, that reduces puffy eyes; I use it every day. I always buy three at a time: one for the bathroom, one for the office and one for my bag – it’s a miracle worker! I also use a facial cream, The Velvet Creme. I also recently tried a new hair care product Muddy – it rocks!

Start in the corner of the eye and work your way towards the temples. Finish with a sharp angle up against the eyebrow. Do half an eye first if you’re unsure. Be careful with your makeup and only use mascara to create this look. The emphasis is on the lips and nails, which are matched with the same colour.

PARTY MAKEUP Going straight from work to a party? No problem. Add a few steps to your day makeup and soon you’ll be ready to party! STEP 1 Make your makeup playful by using two different eyelashes. Match the lash to your eye, making sure they’re not too long in the corners, cut, apply adhesive along the edge, and put in place. Use a turquoise eye pencil for a modern look. STEP 2 Enhance the party look further by applying a dark grey eye shadow under the eye.

INTERVIEW PROFILE POLAND
Meeting celebrities is a dream come true for many people, but for 25-year-old makeup artist Daniel Sobiesniewski working with famous actors and musicians from all over the world is a normal day. TEXT: Ewa Hordyńska, PHOTO: Daniel Chojnacki
Tell us about your background as a makeup artist.
I consider myself to be very lucky. Often I’ve just been in the right place at the right time. To be talented and hard working is a huge part of your success but a little luck never hurts. As an art student I was interested in how to combine painting with makeup and how to use it artistically. Creating with colour and different shapes quickly became an interest, and I replaced canvases with faces. My interest developed into a great passion and I wanted to learn more about makeup and improve my skills. My mother and my sisters were my first models and I quickly started a makeup course at one of the makeup schools in Warsaw. During that time I was offered the chance to do my first photo session, which made it possible for me to start my portfolio. If you want to become a makeup artist your portfolio is important; it helps your clients to see your experience, technique, style and taste.
”Each woman is unique and that’s what I like to bring out.” What element of your job fascinates you the most?
I’m fascinated by how magical it is to enhance a woman’s beauty. The personal influence you get as a makeup artist when you create a new look for a client is amazing. Each woman is unique and that’s what I like to bring out. My work gives me the chance to create something new every day, and I love to see how a woman’s face can transform with makeup.
Store store here in Poland. Later on I heard that a store was about to open in Warsaw and they were recruiting. I went for an interview, and today I’m very happy to be working for Make Up Store.
”Let it be natural, you should shine through”
I discovered Make Up Store when I was looking for beauty inspiration online. I saw something remarkable on Make Up Store’s website: a wide assortment of products in every colour. I wished we had a Make Up
What are your favourite Make Up Store products?
I’ve got lots of favourites! If I had to choose, I’d pick Drama Mascara, which gives lashes both volume and length. I can’t imagine good makeup without it. Blush Fresh and Microshadow Velvet are also two of my favourites.
What difficulties have you encountered as a makeup artist?
Sometimes elderly women approach me with photos of Jennifer Lopez or Christina Aguilera and tell me that they would like to look like them. I then explain that you can transform and change a lot with makeup, but everything has its limits. In those situations I always tell them it’s a brush and not a scalpel that I work with. Good makeup should complement your personality, temper, style and hair style. Your makeup should enhance your best features and natural beauty.
What are the most common makeup mistakes that you see?
One of the most common is wearing the wrong shade of foundation. Foundation that’s too dark looks very strange against your neck and exaggerates wrinkles. Many women forget to apply foundation on their neck as well which makes the face look like a mask. Another problem I’ve found is that a lot of people pluck their eyebrows too much and some completely remove them. Your eyebrows frame your face like a picture frame , so you should pay to have them plucked professionally.
Who or what inspires you?
I get inspired by different seasons and their colours. Colour is at the core of everything I do. I’m also inspired by people who aren’t afraid to experiment or express themselves with clothes or makeup. A person I’m particularly inspired by is Ewa Gil; I think she’s the best makeup artist in Poland. She works with all the biggest artists, including Justyna Steczkowska and Edyta Górniak. Her signature is always perfection, colour and style. I identify with her work. Your best makeup tip?
When did you discover Make Up Store?
like. Let it be natural, you should shine through.
First and foremost, a good cleanser and a great facial cream, that help make your face fresh and clean. Remember to use makeup only to enhance your best features and not for coverage. You should try to bring out your what’s beautiful and cover up what you don’t M | 137
What Make Up Store products don’t you leave the house without?
Face Mist, Oil Blothing Paper and Lip Care Mix – that’s enough for me. What are your plans for the future?
I want to rule the market for professional makeup artists and publish my book, “Magic of Makeup”. The book would give a step-by-step guide to different types of makeup and application techniques using illustrations. It would also include information about the makeup profession, and advice on how to apply work, evening and stage makeup. I think the book would help women to discover the art of makeup, teach them to be bolder and strengthen their self confidence.

INTERVIEW PROFILE SWEDEN
JOE LABERO It was as a 12-year-old boy in Alvesta, Sweden that Lars Bengt Roland Johansson got his first magic kit. Today, as Joe Labero, he’s one of the world’s greatest magicians, captivating audiences all over the world with his illusions. He’s currently starring in a casino show in Australia’s Gold Coast. TEXT: Johan Augustin
Labero’s big break came in 1991 with his show ”A Magic Night” at Berns Salonger in Stockholm. After the success of that act, Labero toured in Sweden, before packing his bags for Australia, where he performed a new show called “Mystique“.
When you’re on stage, how important is makeup for you and your fellow performers?
you experience a few bumps on the road.”
”It’s essential. It’s crucial to be able to enhance your look on stage. You can see the difference just by looking in a mirror with makeup on and off.”
Is it possible to perform magic with makeup?
”Mystique” proved successful and ever since Labero has toured the world, pursuing a career he says its not just a job, but a passion. ”I think you never can feel totally satisfied as an artist, there are always things to improve. You can make it better, you just need to look for the next step,” Labero said. ”It’s a never ending learning process.”
”I like cities and window shopping – that’s where I’ll find inspiration.”
Where do you find inspiration for your shows?
”I get inspired by my travels. Bangkok, for example, is a vibrant city with amazing scenery. I like cities and window shopping – that’s where I’ll find inspiration.”
Do you have any grooming advice? What kind of products do you use to maintain a fresh look?
”I exercise and drink lots of water. After using thick theatre makeup for more than 25 years, your skin tends to feel a bit used. It’s important to use good cleansers that hydrate the skin and lots of moisturizing facial creams!”
What do you do in your free time? Tell us about a Sunday at home.
”I like to play golf, enjoy nature and experience the rainforest. When I’m in Sweden I like to see a movie or eat a nice Sunday dinner with my friends.” Do you use makeup daily?
”No, I don’t. If I’m doing a TV show I use some powder to reduce shine, though.” What are your three favourite Make Up Store products?
What’s your biggest accomplishment?
”Makeup can have magical powers.”
”Makeup can have magical powers. It’s cool to see how makeup can transform a person; makeup artists are magicians as well.”
”My daughter Nicole,” Labero said. ”I’m stubborn and dedicated. As a person and artist it’s all about the details. Hang on to your profession if you enjoy it, be persistent and you’ll succeed. Don’t give up or move on if M | 147
”I use Intensive Foam Remover to cleanse my skin after shows. Moisturisers like The Velvet Creme or Night Time are good for when the skin needs to recover. I also use a light powder to reduce shine, such as Oil Blothing Powder.”
