Cassie Lomas, a truly nice discovery.
Makeup is a rapidly evolving business and to stay ahead of the game, I regularly attend a masterclass or course. In May, I flew over to Manchester to attend a course taught by Cassie Lomas, one of the UK’s leading makeup artists. I could go on and on about this course, I came back full of energy and so many new ideas, as Cassie is an amazing and inspiring artist. Although she is highly demanded and works with famous international artists, (to name a few, she completed a world tour with Lady Gaga and works now with Rita Ora) Cassie is a lovely, down-to-earth person. She also features her own collection of makeup products, for which she teamed up with B. the house brand of the Superdrug chain. I certainly couldn’t return home without some of these babies!
Cassie Lomas Whipped Bronzer comes in a clear plastic jar and looks like chocolate mousse! In the jar, the shade seems rather dark, but don’t let this turn you off. It’s a versatile product that can be applied in many ways. You can use it as a bronzer for an all over sun-kissed look, alone or over your foundation. It blends like a charm and the color is buildable, so if you have fair skin, the tiniest amount might work for you. It’s also great for contouring the face and to define the eyes. With this Whipped Bronzer, pulling off a natural-looking, monochromatic makeup is a piece of cake. I love its silky-soft texture, unlike some pressed bronzers it doesn’t get powdery on the skin, and its solid form is spill-free. This is one of my summer-must haves!
Cassie Lomas Pigment is another clever product, that can be used in different ways. This loose powder is buildable, so you can go for a subtle wash of color on your eyelids, or build up the drama with a more intense, shimmering look. Applied with a wet brush, it morphs into a high-shine, liquid eyeliner, and, mixed with an illuminator, you can create your custom-colored cream highlighter It’s clear a makeup artist had a say in the design of the small jar this loose pigment comes in: the inner lid with holes prevents the powder from going all over the place when you take of the cap.
Cassie Lomas Velvet Matte Liquid Lips is exactly what it says. The non-sticky texture goes on smoothly with the applicator and it dries up quickly to a velvety-matte finish. I’m not a huge fan of mattes, but I’m pleasantly surprised that this one feels quite comfortable on my lips. The colors range from nude to bold pinks and chocolates to a stunning red. My summer favorite is “All About Me”, a warm pinkish nude.
Cassie Lomas stands for very affordable, high quality makeup products. They are cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. What’s not to like?
