This year, The Dylan Bradshaw Academy were asked by the DCU Style Society to do the hair for the biggest event of the Clubs and Socs calendar – the DCU Style Fashion Show.

Our students and educators brought their tools to the Northside when we visited the DCU Campus.

Glitter and hairspray filled the room and we knew we were ready to make the gorgeous models ready for the catwalk!

The Look: Girls

The theme of the evening was Dystopia vs Utopia and wanted to reflect this in the hair!

The Academy were asked for a sleek middle parting with a textured pony. Check out how we achieved this look.

1. Gel the sides down using Super Fixer Gel from Matrix.

2.  Tie the hair in a ponytail and wrap with hair from the bottom of the ponytail.

3. Using a barrel tong, curl the ponytail.

4. Create texture using Matrix Height Riser dust. This will create a messy contrast with the sleek top.

5. Finish the look with Matrix Volume Fixer hairspray.

The Look: Boys 

This was an easy look – the boys weren’t fussy and we just styled their hair that best suited them.

Skin in In!

Skin is in

This summer, it’s time to love the skin you’re in!

It’s 2018 and we want to go back to basics! Ditch the full coverage make-up and heavy baking, skin is in!

Make up artists to the stars and our top make-up artist, Becky Keane, shares her secrets to achieving this summer’s must have look.

Skin

For the perfect sun-kissed, dewy look, Becky suggests using a good illumination under foundation. This will keep your skin hydrated and looking glowy under any foundation. You don’t have to go abroad to rock this sun-kissed glow.

Becky’s Pick:

dbFACE Illuminating Lotion in “Moviestar” €32

Brows

It’s time to move on from the harsh, over-defined “Instagram” brow and welcome the natural and fluffy brows with open arms! Throw away the tweezers and let it grow how nature intended! A less defined brow, natural is this summer’s go-to look.

Becky’s Pick:

dbFACE Clear brow setting gel, this product will let you set your natural brows. Easy and hassle-free!

Eyes

No one wants to spend ages blending your eye shadows only for it to crease and melt off under the sun. Keep it basic in less the time this summer, a wash of colour on the eyes for a fresh youthful look is easy to achieve with a single shimmer shade.

Becky’s Pick:

dbFACE Eyelights in ‘Lava’ (€16) is a sheer high shine loose pigment that gives the perfect sun-kissed glow.

Lips

Keep it simple for summer and go back to the basics. Opt for a super intense gloss for an effortless pout.

Becky’s Pick: 

dbFACE Super Nectar Gloss €18

 

Finish off your golden hour skin glow by adding some dbFACE “Fake it” Illuminated Lotion on your shoulders, collarbone and chest for the perfect sun-kissed glow without catching a flight!
