MUD’S GREAT ESCAPE SPRING LOOK

Tumbleweeds and lonely diners, forget yesterday and make the great escape. It’s time to sell your soul to the open road and drive all night. Remember, if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there…

Step-by-Step

  1. Begin with a clean canvas by applying Cream or Liquid Foundation with Brush #615 to even out the skin tone. Add Corrector and Contour Powder where needed. Don’t forget to fill in the brows to frame the face.
  2. To create depth, apply Espresso Eye Colour to the crease of the eye using Brush #600.
  3. For added dimension and intensity, use Brush #350 to apply Bronzed Eye Colour to the lid.
  4. Apply Black Eye Pencil to the water line and the upper and lower lash line, extending to the inner and outer corners of the eye. Smudge out the liner with Brush #810 to create a soft smoky eye.
  5. Apply Apricot Eye Colour to highlight the brow bone using Brush #350.
  6. Add Gingerbread Cheek Colour along the cheekbones using Brush #710 for a warm glow.
  7. Finish the look by lining the lips with Maple Lip Pencil and filling in with Mudslide Lipstick using Brush #310.

 

So whether you dare to be different, prefer polished and professional or simply want an all-natural look, MUD promises quality, long-lasting wearability, flawless application and radiantly accurate colour. With systematic lines, precision tools, how-to guides and insider tips, we’ve eliminated the frustrating guesswork. Just simple, smart, versatile make-up. No wonder MUD has been the expert choice of make-up professionals for the past decade.

AdriVdWaltProfilePic1
NEW MUD Distributor in Cape Town – Adri van der Walt

I simply fell. FELL IN LOVE with photography and more recently with makeup – specifically with MUD.  I am ready to get busy, I want to #MUDONMYFACE and on #YOURS and I want to create beautiful images for our makeup students that help them build successful careers for themselves in this industry.  My partnership with The MakeUp Effect and MUD creates and unparalled opportunity for us!

 

About Adri
It wasn’t a toy camera. It wasn’t a life-long love-affair with photos and it most certainly did not just happen overnight. It was a journey of learning, self-discovery, adventures, self-doubt at times, triumphs and fails. And of course it is a story of falling in love. And BOY DO I LOVE MY CALLING.

I love that a snapshot can become a treasured keepsake in years to come. I love that a simple, elegant picture can tell a story of love, reveal personality, capture a thought or a feeling and immortalise a special occasion. I am honoured to have an opportunity to pursue my passion and use my talent daily to serve people in their quest to make memories. BUT there is more. Photography and creative communication is about crafting a message that will connect, compel and persuade. It will speak with and without your sales team. It will advertise, sell and entice.

What it boils down to is the powerful play between light on surface, textures. Shadows that are accentuated or pushed back. Light called out to flash or softly played over a subject. In a world cluttered with visual onslaught and overstimulation, Allume is simply my opportunity to be my kinda light in the world around me.

I would be honoured to partner with you to create photos and designs that will help you bring a bolder, stronger conceptual message to your business. I am excited to put my 11+ years of design, branding and visual communication at your disposal so that we can create a dynamic arsenal commercial imagery and material that will add oomph and pizzazz to your marketing plan.

“We’ll be that city on a hill burning brightly
We’ll be a light to the world shining Your glory.” Chris Tomlin / Passion.

Forever Changed Dress4Life

Forever Changed – Dress4Life Event

Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Addi Lang founder of “The Forever Changed Campaign” has joined hands with Uber Glam Fashion Design School and Blue Note Events to host “DRESS 4 LIFE” on the 17th October at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton. The fundraiser which supports the Forever Changed Campaign is twofold as it firstly launches the Forever Changed Documentary which has been created to provide a roadmap for newly diagnosed cancer warriors filmed by The African Motion Picture Company.
An emotional Addi Lang says “Since the press conference I held in October 2014 about becoming a reluctant warrior I have done a lot of research and felt the need to warn others and share the information that I have collected. Had I realized this sooner, it would have allowed me to make very different choices of treatment and the changes that I would have made. So after having had a mastectomy, reconstruction, chemotherapy which did not work very well for me I have information to share with others in addition warnings of knowing ones health rights. I feel that whilst it is too late for me to change anything for myself it is through this campaign that I have found meaning and purpose to save one life at a time and to try and warn others so that they do not have to go through the pain and suffering that I have over the past year. It is also very important for me to share my story with passion that there is a life after diagnosis and can be one of hope.”

 

The second part of DRESS 4 LIFE is pure entertainment ala “fashionista extravaganza” with world class performers taking to the stage to support the Forever Changed Campaign and lend a hand to friend and colleague, battle weary warrior Addi Lang. Owner of Uber Glam Fashion Design School, Lelanie Jacques has created the exclusive designer ball gown for Addi to walk down the ramp and is specifically themed as the Monarch Butterfly. As butterflies have inspired Addi to live life deliberately with hope she believes that this ballgown will create awareness of the impending extinction of this magnificent butterfly.

The music that will be played for this segment has been written recording artist Aly Cook – 5 Times Nominated New Zealand Female Country Artist of the Year (Awarded 2012) and NEXT New Zealand Woman of the Year nominee (Arts & Culture) 2011. After the release of this song which is aptly called “Forever Changed”, Aly Cook will continue to donate a portion of the sales through ITunes to the Forever Changed Campaign. Performed by Aly Cook with backing by The Dions and recorded last week at Bay City Sound Studios in Nelson, New Zealand, the song is produced by Mark Patterson with release on Futures Entertainment. Studio Filming was done by Horizon Aerial Imaging in Nelson New Zealand. Artist Co-Ordination Key 2 Artist Promotions is Therese McKee based in Australia. The Forever Changed Documentary will include this as the title song.

“Creativity in its purest form finds it way to this stage as art, fashion and music with a message” is the brief to the models, designers, dancers, musicians and singers from creative stage director Deeno Naidoo, owner of Blue Indian Pictures. The winning model and designer will be selected by a panel of judges and the 2 winners will be announced. Prizes are sponsored by JustYou Model Management, Uber Glam Fashion Design School, MB Studio Community, MUD Studio Sandton and The Palazzo Hotel.

On stage in South Africa for the first time in 20 years will be Zac Hilon, the dynamic South African born singer songwriter who is currently the headline act in a musical that is taking Europe by storm. Hilon has just signed a management deal in Europe and will be recording his upcoming album in France & Switzerland. He is a prolific songwriter his songs are currently being played on radio in the USA, Australia, South Africa United Kingdom and Israel. Originally from South Africa the international sensation formed the band ‘No Way Out,’ which opened for Duran Duran and toured South Africa and it’s neighbouring countries. Hilon has performed at some of the biggest venues in Las Vegas and has performed on “Gimme The Mike” a FOX TV network. He moved to Los Angeles, landing regular appearances at The Universal Studio City Walk and Cabo Wabo in Hollywood.
Actor/recording artist/songwriter Emmanuel Castis who has recently relocated to the USA will fly in from LA to emcee and perform at this lavish fundraiser. The evening will also be the launch platform for singer/songwriter “ATLAS” performing with her live musicians. Peter Szewach who has performed stand-up comedy routines throughout South Africa, New York and Las Vegas will be making a guest appearance.

3 Original artworks have been donated by MB Studio Community Art Gallery in Sandton and will be auctioned in support of the Forever Changed Campaign. The pieces are currently being created with the butterfly effect theme and will be seen for the first time on 5th October.

I acquired the rights as the sole distributor for MUD Make-up designory in Pretoria, Midrand and Centurion. We distribute to image consultants, make-up artists, schools, hair salons and hairdressers at wholesale prices.

The make-up showroom (a first of its kind) opened in May 2012 and the Centurion branch will soon be making its mark in Centurion.

The Jolanda Badeker Make-up school provides expert training to potential make-up artists and have also incorporated hairstyling training and image consulting short courses from June this year. The make up training includes, beginners, intermediate, advanced, photographic, airbrush and special effects. 4 of the courses are ITEC accredited as the school has an alliance with Beautiko Beauty Academy in Brooklyn.
