go to this website and it tells you about the beauty for the Spice Girls for their recent tour:
Emma (Baby Spice)
Make-up artist Maria-Louise says: I wanted to keep the Baby Spice thing going because it’s important they are all recognisable through their individual personalities. So I’ve kept it fresh, dewy and glowing with just a pale pink glossy lip. I’ve done very highlighted cheeks and clean eyes but with glitter because it’s very showy.
Maria-Louise: I prepare Emma’s skin first with hydrating natural oil, because all the make-up that we use and the travelling that the girls are doing can be very dehydrating. Next I contour Emma’s face using light-reflecting particles on the brow bone and cheekbones and darker colours under the cheekbones.
I use eyelashes that don’t weigh down the eyelid, they bond to the skin and feel comfortable. Then I add mascara to the top & bottom lash and a white eyeliner. I use pigments and glitters for Emma too, to emphasis her features.
Geri (Ginger Spice)
Make-up artist Kolbrun says: Geri’s look is warm and natural, with a healthy glow, but still with the Hollywood st
arlet look. It’s classic and glamorous with a bit of a Bridget Bardot
Kolbrun says: I use mineral foundations on the skin because they are perfect for achieving a very natural look. I’ve used brown colours to do the contouring of Geri’s face and peachy colours on the cheeks for that fresh look. I use golden browns and milky colours around the eyes, which are all quite glittery, and I blend them into an almond shape to lift the corner of the eye.
I use a thick black eyeliner, kind of 1950s style, and just half a lash on the side, to give the eyes an extra lift. On the eyelids I use two pigments. I start with eye shadow and then build up with loose colour to make it stronger.
Eyebrows are drawn up quite high, for a movie star-type look. I use a natural tone lip-liner that’s a tone darker than the lipstick, which is a matt beige tone, that’s our Bridget Bardot colour. I finish off with shimmering tan spray on Geri’s body, which is perfect for her colouring.
Mel B. (Scary Spice)
For Mel’s make-up I start with a waterproof airbrush base, which really holds through the show. I feel airbrush gives a really beautiful finish and you can get more coverage in areas that you need it.
I do smoky eyes on Mel, using a smoky black under the eye and a thin line on top. I use black on the outer and inner lid, and copper pink glitter in the middle of the lid to brighten up the eye and keep it light looking. I also do a white line inside the eye to open it up. Mel has very sculpted brows, so I just do a little definition with a light pencil.
On her cheeks I do a lovely golden highlight and a contour with the airbrush, using a brown and a nice peachy tone. The lips are very nude and beige with a nice gloss. I mix the gloss myself because with all Mel’s hair you can’t use a really sticky gloss. You don’t want a colour on the lip either that could streak across the face when the hair hits it. Plus Mel prefers a lighter lip.
Finally, I do a shimmer on her body and hair with a golden glitter spray.
Melanie C. (Sporty Spice)
Make-up artist Kolbrun says: It’s a futuristic, uber rock-chick version of the familiar Sporty Spice. We wanted to take her from what she was years ago and bring her right up to what she is now.
Kolbrun says: I use a mineral foundation for that flawless look, plus it’s very healthy for the skin, and protects it from the effects of touring and travel. On cheeks I use a pretty blusher that gives a rosy, healthy glow.
On the eyes I use a black kohl and on the eyelid I use a paint pot which is waterproof liquid make-up in a midnight blue colour. I put that on first to give a base for the eye make-up to stay on throughout the show. Then I use pigmentation colours, which are like a loose eye shadow, on the eyelids. For highlights I use a vanilla colour up to the eyebrow.
I use glitter glue on the eyelids and then I put glitter on top which catches the light and it’s amazing – it makes Melanie’s eyes look like living disco balls.
On the lips I use a soft pale pink glaze and finish off with lots of black inside each eye and loads and loads of waterproof mascara.
Victoria (Posh Spice)
Make-up artist Maria-Louise says: It’s a very sexy seductive look for Victoria on this tour, and I’ve gone slightly stronger than usual because she can carry it off. We’ve done a really smoky eye, with red and chocolate browns as opposed to blacks. We’ve also gone with a fake lash, lots of eyeliner to ping her eyes, and a really defined brow.
Maria-Louise says: I use natural oil on Victoria’s skin to give it hydration, as the powders we use can be very dehydrating.For lips, she doesn’t have it straight out of the pot, I actually mix three colours together because it’s perfect. It’s absolutely fabulous for her. If you look closely, you’ll see that Victoria has a brown lip for part of the show, and then we change it to a wine-red when she does her catwalk because it’s stronger. That stays on for the next couple of songs and then we change it back to the brown glossy lips for the rest of the show.
The normal rule in make-up is that you can’t have a heavy eye and a heavy lip but it works for Victoria on this particular show and she carries it off really, really well.
