Guardians of The Galaxy; Coming Summer 2014

Guardians of The Galaxy; Coming Summer 2014

Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer.

When Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand with the galaxys fate in the balance.

This has been a hugely creative journey for the cast and crew involved in this film. We had to develop products specifically for this film, working alongside a cosmetologist, David Stoneman. Spending weeks developing many different skin tones for our aliens, with products that were suitable for delicate skins, yet durable enough to withstand our long filming days, water resilient and not transferable.

Our hair work was unusual and challenging within itself, creating looks to help define the various alien species. There was a worldwide search to find an actress to play Nebula as her head needed to be shaved. Of course the task fell upon us, the hair department, to talk the actress through it and to shave her luscious waist-length locks off.

Alongside our makeup and hair work, we had specially designed contact lenses and teeth made, to finish the looks off…..not to mention the prosthetics that had a big part to play.

Our leading actors are unusual and varied, namely, Chris Pratt (Peter Quill), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), Lee Pace (Ronan), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Michael Rooker (Yondu), to name a few…..

I would love to share some behind the scenes pictures of the make ups in progress but you’ll have to wait until nearer the release.

……You are in for a real treat.

Januarys Monthly Must Have

After wrapping on Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy now is the perfect time to share with you, some of my monthly make up/hair secrets….

 Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream

An absolute, all time, favourite, never without it. The Natural formula leaves the skin feeling soft, supple and deeply hydrated, providing a great base for make up application. This is product also leaves the skin with a slight sheen, which stops the base looking flat, perfecting a 3D effect. Lets face it we all want that effect on our make ups.

 Macadamia oil

With its intensely nourishing properties, this hair oil is great as part of your normal hair care routine, especially for dry, weather-worn hair….. It’s even helps Extends the life of coloured hair!….

 Tweezerman Beauty Tools

Perfectly groomed eyebrows are a favourite thing of mine. Its easy to tweeze, trim and tame with the Tweezerman range . They simply are the beauty tool experts!

If you cant wait for my next ‘Monthly Must Haves’,  you can always keep up with me @LizzieYG on twitter.

I am currently viewing the BAFTA screenings and voting for the finalists for, this years awards. Good luck to everyone involved, we hope to be there next year with our Guardians of The Galaxy 🙂

Monthly must have

People are always asking me what my favourite ‘must have’ products are, so I thought I’d use this space as a platform to let you know about the wonderful skin & hair care products I come across every month.

My skincare pick this month is the lovely Quince Cream from the Dr Haushka range.
I absolutely love this product, it’s so refreshing and tightens the skin, while also protecting it against the outside world.  The skin is left smooth, soft and radiant.  And it smells amazing too!
The Dr H girls are always so knowledgable and helpful when it comes to any queries, so hats off to you and thank you for your continued help!
My hair ‘must have’ this month is Joico‘s Daily Care Leave-In Detangler.
