Super creative makeup artist Ainsley Tarlinton takes us through her Orange glam look – we just love it!

Can you tell us about the chosen look? What was the inspiration for it?
The look I chose was a earring inspired series I did a few weeks ago, I purchased all different types of earrings off a website called Shein. I then did matching makeup looks for each pair! This pair was the oranges.

What products did you use to create the look?
I used a lot of paints & water actives liners for this look, as well as eyeshadow palettes & the usual makeup products you need for every look!

Any tips for anyone at home wanting to recreate a similar look?
Patience is key!! Doing the orange & blocking out my brow took me the longest, definitely took my time & didn’t rush!

What would you say your signature beauty look is?
My signature beauty look would probably be a crazy cartoon, character look that you wouldn’t wear on a day to day basis. I don’t wear makeup often mainly for Instagram or content!

 

Here at Dr.Lipp, we make multi-use skincare solutions to keep life simple and reduce our carbon footprint – do you think it’s important to streamline your beauty kit?
I do think it is important, there are so many amazing technologies & brands such as yourself that offer these things to make it easier to achieve for us makeup artists.

What would you be doing if you were not a makeup artist?
I studied beauty therapy & nails from a young age, I think I would be working in the beauty industry still or doing social media for a company, I’ve always been into photography & marketing as well.

What items should everyone have in their kit?
Good beauty sponges & good brushes!! You can’t perform your best if your tools aren’t good!

Who is your dream client?
A dream client would be someone who knows what they want, but also knows that everyone is different & majority of the photos that are used for inspiration are models so the makeup look won’t look the same. Also clients that love to chat & trust me!

Do you have any career highlights so far?
Definitely getting onto all of the PR lists I have so far, as well as reaching 10k followers on Instagram! It come so quickly & made me feel like all my hard work is paying off!

What is a day in the life like for you?
When I am doing my makeup looks, my day is very busy! I wake up and get my son ready for school, get dressed, run errands if I need to, then I go home & set up for the makeup look I have planned to do, I can spend anywhere from 3-6 hours on a makeup look, I then clean up & pack away everything, clean brushes, have a shower, cook dinner & then go to bed!

What is the best piece of beauty advice you ever received and what is the best piece you could give?
Probably practice makes perfect, looking back at how far I have come from practicing every day blows my mind, I am still learning! Advice I could give is patience, if you have the passion for this industry when you keep at it and don’t give up then you will achieve anything!
