Next in a series of 'meet my friends' blog posts, is Sali Jones other wise known as Ms Moo Make up

You have put make up on hundreds of famous models and burlesque performers.  What has been your favourite face to work with?
And I’m very lucky to have worked with some of them multiple times! For facial structure, Ulorin Vex was a dream to work with. I also love working with Frankii Wilde, Anna Fur Laxis and Rayna Terror. All have some wonderful facial features, are beautiful inside and out and work incredibly hard in front of camera and behind the scenes.

Must have product right now?
It’s been a long time favourite of mine now, but Illamasqua lipsticks are incredible. My signature colour is Encounter, but I’ve also big love for Sangers and Drench. I want more natural and neutral colours for my bridal kits, so I’ll be investing in them shortly. Illamasqua products are always so well packaged and presented too. It’s a box of loveliness!

Sum up your personal make up style?
VERY minimalist during the day; moisturiser, primer, some pan stick foundation, blusher, eyebrows, eyeliner, mascara and lip balm or a gloss. I wear near enough the same thing every day to my day job!

 Going out is something difficult – I often get stuck on what make-up I want to do, so I stick to the same style but mix up my colours. I like a varied palette, but at the moment I’m a little in love with Goldilux by Sugarpill. The perfect compliment to near enough any eye make-up.

You do a lot of vintage/ pin up make up?   Have you any tips for vintage girls doing their make up?
There’s so many resources for period make-up, my best advice is to not be afraid to copy; there’s video tutorials, books and a plethora of images on sites like Tumblr and Pintrest. If you want to be a bit more experimental with your face, an hour before going out isn’t the time to learn. Sit down with your kit when you’re watching a film or something on TV during the week and mix up some eye colours or styles. Just make sure you clear off all your make-up before bed!

You have been doing allot of bridal make up?  Have you noticed any trends in new brides?
The big trend for 2013 is going to be emerald! I can’t wait for someone to request emerald make-up, as I think it’ll look gorgeous. It’ll suit someone really pale, maybe with black hair. Yummy!

Do you have any secrets of the trade for flawless skin?
Simple; look after it! If you want 'perfect' makeup, you should start with skincare. The better your skin, the more flawless makeup will look. It’s never too early to use preventative measures now, as it’ll be too late when the wrinkles start. Think of skincare as an investment for when you’re older.

Also, drink lots of water, find a primer that’s right for you and remember your skin changes colour so you’ll need at least two shades for winter and summer skin.
