I thought it was time for a new makeup video & who better to give me inspiration than Madonna! My friend, the brilliant photographer Neil Gussey suggested we do a photo shoot & style it just like a mid 80′s Madonna, but with a bit of a modern twist to make it wearable today.

After first watching Desperately Seeking Susan in 1985 I remember emulating Madonna’s look for my 21st party with big hair, loads of glittery makeup & equally glittery jewellery & clothes. Madonna was such a fashion & beauty icon in those days & its quite remarkable how her original funky/sexy look has come full circle.

I think the look we created for our shoot & video is perfect for a party, a ball, or even if you just want to head out looking super glam. Just click on the You Tube link below to watch our little movie… I hope it inspires you all!

Heres a list of the products I used;

  1. Clinique Even Better Foundation combined with Bobbi Brown concealer
  2. Shiseido Translucent loose powder
  3. Bobbi Brown Eye Brow makeup
  4. MAC ‘White’ pigment (as the base eye shadow)
  5. Jane Iredale black mineral eye pencil
  6. MAC ‘Carbon’ Eye shadow (pure black) & MAC ‘Smut’ eyeshadow (charcoal)
  7. Stilla white liquid liner, Osmosis Black liquid liner.
  8. Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume mascara
  9. Osmosis Bronzer in ‘South Beach’ (to sculpt cheekbone) & MAC ‘Silver Dusk’ powder (on top of the cheekbone)
  10. Osmosis Lipliner in ‘Sangria’
  11. Bobbi Brown lipstick in ‘Vixen Red’

Thanks to Neil Gussey for his fab camera work & to model Ashleigh for lending me her gorgeous face!


  1. This is a fabulous video. Great to see the 80′s styling! I would love to see a step by step video of a wearable day makeup for the everyday woman as well.

  2. Hi Anna. I am planning to do lots more makeup videos & they will all appear as a blog so you wont miss them! I have several others I did awhile back that are on my You Tube Channel under Nikki Lovrich. thanks!
