MEET THE GIRL GANG - Patricia Monarca

The gorgeous P-Money is as beautiful inside as she is out! She's our vibrant festival manager who roams around the UK setting up our Gypsy Shrine tent and providing you all with gLIT makeovers and massive smiles. When she's not at a festival, she's probably gallivanting across the globe, cooking vegan treats or planning world domination with her new clothing line! If you've seen The Gypsy Shrine at a festival, you've most likely been greeted, glittered or braided by this BABE. Our new series of 'Meet The Girl Gang' could start with NO other... we asked her a few Q's so you guys could get to know her as well as we do! 


What’s your fave thing about being a Gypsy Shrine artist?

Every person looks for a job or career where they can have the freedom to have their own input. Not only do I get a voice I also get inspired every day; it's great to work with so many talented people and learn. I love learning, especially when it bounces off someone else's talent. I'm also able to be creative and let my mind flow and take whatever direction it wants every time I work; and that for me is “Life Goals”.



 

Give us your top tip for creating an amazing festival look?

Festivals are your opportunity to try the makeup look you always wanted but never had the courage to because it was too bold. I love the more native, aztecy looks; when you add glitter to this = match made in heaven.

“The more the better”, you can never add too much of anything, if you think you have enough glitter, jewels or face paint, think again.

ALWAYS add detail!!!! You'd be surprise how effective tiny white dots can be.

Lastly, add different vibrant colours to your make up looks, the more colours you add the more details your look will seem to have.


 

What’s your life motto?
Travel the world, eat your veggies, wear glitter and always be kind to people.

Glitter boobs or Glitter booty?

Oooohhhh! This is a tough one….

BOOTY! but they are both equally as awesome.

PS: this was one of the hardest decisions EVER...

 

Which is your favourite Gypsy Shrine product?

I love the new rainbow chest piece. However “Disco Night” face jewel holds a special place in my heart. It was my very first time playing around with jewel designing and I now see it as my baby, haha!!

If you were stranded on an island for a month, what three items would you take?

A puppy, a book and a surfboard (nothing like the now to learn a new skill Hey?!)

Which festival are you most excited for this year and why?

Secret Garden Party. The very last SGP, I think there will be some amazing surprises waiting for us.
 

 

How would you describe your own personal style?

Fashionwise: Colourful and different. I like mixing trendy clothing items with other bits I've had for a while and can't let go of because I still think they're cool.

 

Lifewise: Healthy, Happy and Free!!

GLITTER PARTY IN THE LOVE ISLAND VILLA

When you get an invite in to the Love Island Villa, it’s impossible to RSVP any other way than with a massive YES, am I right?!

We sent five of our amazing Gypsy Shrine artists in to Glitter and Jewel the whole cast read for their Glitter Party. Using our signature chunky glitters and range of face and body jewels,

we created individual looks for each of the Love Island contestants.

There wasn’t a babe in the villa that didn’t LOVE their looks and we’re so happy they were on board to go ALL out!

Alex and Montana spent the few hours we had with them competing over who could get the most glitter on their bodies… and we think they look AMAZING, right?!

Each of the couples wanted to stick to themes of colour between them so they could look their absolute best! Who do you think is the best couple in their glitter makeovers?

ARTIST TAKEOVER - Aisha Khan

Next, MUA Aisha Khan (instagram.com/akhanartistry) blew us away with her chilling snow queen look. From those ice blue lips to her strong blue contour this girl has made us want to all embrace our inner Narnia ice queen. FUN FACT: Aisha’s must have beauty product has to be liquid lipstick. She’s always on the look out for the best formula. Well girl, we think you nailed it with this look! To recreate this look for yourself, you will need:

•    The Gypsy Shrine ‘Mix & Match’ face jewels.
•    The Gypsy Shrine ‘Iridescent’, ‘Mermaid’ and ‘Unicorn’ glitters. 
•    Snazaroo light blue, silver and white paints. 
•    Kryolan Blue Aqua Paint.
•    Jeffree Star ‘Drug Lord’ for both lips and eyeliner, ‘Breakfast at Tiffanys’ and ‘Ice Cold’ skin frost. 
•    NYX Cosmetics liquid lipstick in ‘Blue’. 
•    Morphe Brushes 12P palette. 
•    Unicorn Lashes in ‘Vespertine’ topped with Kryolan white lashes.

FUN FACT: Aisha loved spending this Christmas with her family especially her niece and nephew. “They were both so excited about Santa’s visit! Having the kids around at Christmas makes it all so much more magical and festive and of course I love glittering my make up all up for the entire festive season!”

ARTIST TAKEOVER - Sarah Patterson

Next up, ultimate babe Sarah Patterson had her own spin on the Christmas fairy look featuring an array of festive silver and gold glitters. And now she looks the festive part, we asked her what she enjoyed the most this Christmas. “This Christmas I loved having my whole family being together. I have a 3 week old nephew that received a ridiculous amount of cuddles from his Auntie Sarah!”  If pink isn’t your thing but fairies are then you can recreate Sarah’s product using the following:

•    Bare minerals primer.
•    Mehron celebe HD foundation
•    Urban decay concealer, translucent powder and perversion mascara.
•    Barry M silver eyeliner in the waterline, black on the lash line.         
•    Superstar silver and gold face paint on the lids and then the silver and gold glitter mix on top.
•    Superstar white face paint on the brow and The Gypsy Shrine ‘Iridescent’ glitter mix pressed on top.
•    Global Body Art paint in ‘Gold’ on the roots, then sprinkled with The Gypsy Shrine gold glitter mix.
•    Barry M silver and black eyeliner.
•    Urban decay conceler, powder and perversion mascara
•    Eyelure lashes customised with The Gypsy Shrine silver glitter mix.
•    NYX liquid matte lips.
•    Phees make up tips highlighter in ‘Papillion’ pressed on top and on the nose and cheekbones  
•    MAC blush.
•    The Gypsy Shrine ‘Iridescent’ glitter mix on the body.


FUN FACT: Sarah’s top tip for removing a heavy face of make-up is to use the ‘make-up eraser’. “It is the best thing ever to get make-up and body paint off with. I have two already and another on my Christmas list!”

ARTIST TAKEOVER - Mia Kennington

We would like to wish all of our Gypsy Shrine glitter queens a very sparkly Christmas and an even shinier New Year – we hope you have had a good one!

We have had a crazy month with pop ups in Topshop, Selfridges and Miss Guided all over the country, we have also been in the Alps with Rise Festival!! Its been a busy one for us!!!

But what about for those of you that weren’t able to attend our pop up stores? Well, we’ve got you covered too! For the past week, those of you that are already following us on Instagram (instagram.com/thegypsyshrine) and Snapchat (thegypsyshrine) will have already seen our amazing bloggers and make up artists taking over our story and sharing with you a tutorial to their favourite sparkly Christmas looks. All of which can be recreated using our special range of chunky glitters and face gems. The girls gave us it all, from a frosty ice queen to a dainty Christmas fairy. There’s a look here for every one of us to try!

First up we had the lovely Mia Kennington from Thrills of Tomorrow. As one of our on team make up artists, we were so excited to share with you Mia’s work and showcase just how talented she really is. And when asked what her favourite thing about working for us Gypsy Shrine girls was Mia said “Of course, it’s got to be playing with all the fabulous glitter! Browsing what new colours and goodies there are to work with.. But mostly seeing how happy everyone is when we sparkle them up.” And sparkle is what she definitely did as she created a festive, deer look inspired by the ever so cute Snapchat filter. (Although, don’t tell Snapchat but we think that Mia’s sleighs any day!) To recreate Mia’s look you will need:

•    Gypsy Shrine ‘Mix & Match’ face jewels.
•    Gypsy Shrine ‘Glitz & Shine’ glitter gift set.
•    Gypsy Shrine ‘Fortune Night’ glitter gift set.
•    Mehron Face Paints. (available at https://www.treasurehouseofmakeup.co.uk/mehron-products.html/)
•    MAC Pink blushes/eye-shadows.

FUN FACT: Mia’s must have beauty products are a good bronzer, mini perfumes to keep in her bag at all times and of course, always a bit of sparkle!
