CAROLINE DENNIS: THE MAKE UP ARTIST

first_imgIt is hard to believe that such stunning special effects (pictured) are entirely created from make-up. What makes it even more incredible is that it is all done by one of our very own.  Whether it’s a fantasy or theatrical make-up, Caroline Dennis has the talent to elevate her craft of make-up design to a form of high art. But a skill that refined doesn’t come without training and a lot of skill.For someone who has only been in such a school for only four months, the Liberian-born make-up artist first made an impression of her work when she posted her first work on her Facebook page, getting over a hundred likes and comments expressing how talented people think she is based on a make-up job she did on a model.Born on July 7, 1987 in Monrovia, Caroline Dennis is a student at the Scandinavian International Make-up School in Bankok, Thailand. Still in her mid 20’s, her creations are not just impeccable and vibrant, but bursting with inspiration as well, making you wish you too could be a make-up artist.For Caroline, make-up was always something that intrigued her while growing up as a child, leaving her with no other options but dreams of becoming a make up artist some day. “I’ve always been drawn to colors and beauty, and it amazes me how make-up can transform a person from one look to the other.”In as much as Caroline is not a full time make-up artist, her work stands out for a beginner; but that doesn’t give the young creative artist a big ego. Rather it encourages her to do better.  “I’m even going into special effects and learning about everything from fantasy make-up, photography make-up, drag queen make up, photography black and white make-up, T.V and film bridal make-up, creative make-up, theater make-up, and fashion make-up”.But not all that glitters is gold.  Being in a school where you’re the only person of African descent is a huge challenge for Caroline. In addition to the stigmas associated with being Black, she’s also battling the challenge of learning how to do make up on her fellow black skin tone; as she’s only being taught how to do make up for models with fair skin. “I m the only black in the school so is hard for me to work on black skin tone. So I try my best to practice at home, doing my own make-up. At times I will practice on my friend”.Adding, “The difference is ‘white’ skin tone but I use the same basic on dark skin tone. Like matching the right foundation, know the skin type, type of eyes, shape of eyebrow, face shapes and contouring.  They are just white but I use the same technique to do a dark skin”.Beyond every successful person is a dream bigger than him/herself. For Caroline, her dreams are to one day come back home and give back to the society she comes from.“In the future eventually I will come back home and build up my name in the make-up industry as well as wanting to work in the Fashion and Film industry, working along with talented artists.”The budding make-up artist describes herself as a “simple person” and believes that within the next five years, “I will like to have my own make up team and create a big impression in the make-up industry.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Astana stun United youngsters in Europa League

first_imgDi’Shon Bernard, 19, then put through his own goal to hand Astana victory over a United side whose average age was just 22.United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said some of the youngsters on show put their hands up to feature against Alkmaar in the final round of group matches on December 12.“At times we were excellent but there were spells when we let them push us back. That cost us in the end,” he said.“These boys have learnt a lot and have given me food for thought. I’m very pleased with many of them.”Shomko, meanwhile, told UEFA.com that the result will live in his memory.“I will be telling my grandchildren, ‘you know guys a while ago I scored against Manchester United’. It does not matter who scored, really. The most important thing is that we won,” he said.Solskjaer made 11 changes from Sunday’s draw with Sheffield United by handing senior debuts to teenagers Ethan Laird, Dylan Levitt and Bernard as well as naming cancer survivor Max Taylor on the bench.United opened the scoring after 10 minutes as Lingard’s low show from outside the box beat Nenad Eric to his right.Shomko responded after 55 minutes as his effort from inside the box glanced past Lee Grant in the United goal.The three points, Astana’s first of the European campaign, were secured when Bernard deflected an Antonio Rukavina cross past 36-year-old Grant seven minutes later.Astana were already out of contention for the knockout stages ahead of the round five fixture in Group L.Later Thursday, AZ Alkmaar host Partizan Belgrade and a win for the Dutch side would move them a point ahead of the English giants. 0Shares0000(Visited 21 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000England’s Jesse Lingard scored for Manchester United before they lost to Astana © AFP / stringerParis, France, Nov 28 – Kazakh champions Astana fought back to surprise a youthful Manchester United 2-1 in the Europa League on Thursday.Captain Jesse Lingard opened the scoring for the visitors, who had already reached the last 32, before Dmitri Shomko equalised for the home side.last_img read more

Food security ‘high on BRICS agenda’

first_img20 March 2013Food security will be high on the agenda at the 5th BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) Summit in Durban next week, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson said during a roadshow on the summit in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga on Monday.Food security was an important issue for the BRICS member countries, and South Africa and the continent had a lot to offer in this regard, Joemat-Pettersson said.“South Africa has become a special interest in all these countries because of our ability to produce food. We have a very excellent and thriving commercial agricultural sector.”She said that to boost the farming sector, her department was in negotiations with food giant Walmart to buy its farm products from small farmers.“This is not only for local consumption but also for exporting abroad. We want to make sure that the largest part of the value chain is captured within South Africa.“Right now when our commodities leave our country, the money which is added is not for us, but for the middle man in processing. For example, we want our bananas to leave South Africa in the form of juice, jam or anything which is needed by the world. It must be processed here,” Joemat-Pettersson said.The minister urged South Africans to learn from Brazil how to address inequality, unemployment and poverty.“Brazil had a lot of hungry people to feed, but the president introduced the zero hunger programme and it resulted in fewer and fewer people going to bed hungry. South Africa today has huge farms, people who can export products, but they have very little food security to feed each and every family.“Currently, 13-million people in South Africa do not have enough food to eat, and what we learned from Brazil is that instead of planting flowers in our backyards, we could start to plant vegetables and fruits.”She added that other countries had a lot to teach South Africa when it came to doing business.“What we learned from the BRICS countries is that we can be friends and competitors in a healthy way; we can co-exist with Mozambique and Swaziland to bring about change. Mpumalanga has a lot to offer in terms of being a partner and a competitor.”The BRICS group of influential emerging economies together represent about 43% of the world’s population and approximately one-fifth of global gross domestic product (GDP).In 2012, the BRICS countries accounted for approximately 11% of global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows ($465-billion) and about 17% of world trade.South Africa sees its membership of the grouping as crucial to leveraging economic opportunities for the development of the country and of the continent as a whole, while the country’s BRICS partners view South Africa as a springboard into Africa and a key development partner on the continent.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Fentanyl and other drugs are delivered by Canada Post

first_imgCanadian governments are not the only organizations selling narcotics online and delivering them via Canada Post. There are far more potent drugs than legal cannabis for sale on the dark web, and savvy users know how to order fentanyl, heroin, meth and more right to their homes. The vendors selling these products also know that thanks to a strange gap in Canada’s postal laws, the police can’t search Canada Post packages as easily as they can those delivered by couriers like UPS or FedEx-so our national postal service is the method of choice for online dealers around the world.Where does this quirk in our laws come from? Why does it still exist? And why do so few people seem interested in fixing it-despite requests from law enforcement agencies across the country? This seems like a no-brainer in the midst of a national overdose crisis…but nobody’s stepping up to the plate, even in an election year? And, is there actually a silver lining to buying the worst drugs online-where at least customers can leave reviews?GUEST: Claire Brownell, Maclean’sAudio Playerhttp://media.blubrry.com/thebigstory/s/radio.pmd.rogersdigitalmedia.com/podcasts/thebigstory/tbs_03112019.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on iTunes or Google Play.You can also find it at thebigstorypodcast.ca.last_img read more

Toronto stocks fall for a seventh straight day crude oil prices fall

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock index started the week losing ground for a seventh-straight session amid an off-day for any headlines on NAFTA as negotiations are set to resume Tuesday.It was a rather directionless day for equities with some pockets of strength and weakness, said Craig Fehr, Canadian markets strategist for Edward Jones.He expects political drama and issues over trade and tariffs will probably spook the markets sporadically but otherwise return to fundamentals such as economic growth on light news days.“You put those together and on days when there’s not the distraction of political drama or policy risks, I think that is probably where the markets will gravitate back to which again absent the headline risks probably leads the markets higher over time,” he said in an interview.The United States has enjoyed strong corporate earnings and economic data, including last week’s labour report. Canada’s employment report was weaker with 51,600 net jobs lost last month that drove the national unemployment rate to six per cent, up from 5.8 per cent in July.While weekend tweets from U.S. President Donald Trump about China stoked some fears, markets didn’t overreact because the trade dispute between the two countries will simmer for awhile, Fehr said.The S&P/TSX composite index lost 33.18 points to close at 16,057.09, after reaching a low of 16,057.09 on 200.7 million shares traded.The stock market is down about two per cent since Aug. 29.Monday’s session saw major sectors like gold fall 1.78 per cent and energy move down one per cent. Materials, metals, consumer staples and financials also lost ground.The cannabis-heavy health-care sector led, rising 1.5 per cent. Information technology, consumer discretionary, real estate, utilities and telecom services were up.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 59.47 points to 25,857.07. The S&P 500 index was up 5.45 points to 2,877.13, while the Nasdaq composite was up 21.62 points to 7,924.16.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average of 75.97 cents US, compared with an average of 75.96 cents US on Friday.The October crude contract was down 21 cents to US$67.54 per barrel and the October natural gas contract was up 2.8 cents to US$2.80 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was down 60 cents US to US$1,199.80 an ounce and the December copper contract was up 0.55 of a cent at US$2.63 a pound.last_img read more

Adenovirushit children vulnerable to bronchiolitis say doctors

first_imgKolkata: Children affected with adenovirus are a cause of concern for the city doctors as the affected patients often develop respiratory problems even after they are released from the hospitals.According to the doctors, the children, who are once affected with adenovirus, are later developing serious lung infection which the doctors termed as ‘bronchiolitis obliterans (BO). Otherwise known as popcorn lung and constrictive bronchiolitis, the disease causes obstruction to the smallest airways of the lungs (bronchioles) due to inflammation.

Earlier, it was difficult to identify the virus. Respiratory problem, sore throat, fever, persisting cough and cold are the signs of the virus. It has also been learnt that some children and a few elderly patients have been under Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwaymedication at various hospitals in the city with similar symptoms. More than 100 children have been affected with adenovirus in past couple of months. What is worrying for the doctors is that many of the children who return home after being cured, again complaining respiratory distress. As there is no specific medicines for the disease the situation is further complicated. It may be mentioned here that more than 20 babies were admitted at the Institute of Child Health with adenovirus most of them have been released from the hospital after treatment. Many other private hospitals in the city also admitted patients with the same disease. The babies who have been admitted to the hospital are aged between four months and one year. Adenovirus can be a serious cause when it comes to morbidity and mortality. According to a senior official of a private hospital in Park Circus, there is also a crisis of influenza vaccine due to the rising number of viral infection patients in the past three months. There is no proper vaccine for adenovirus and hence the doctors are administering other medicines to the patients. If fever keeps recurring despite medication, the patient should be taken to the hospital and also if they complain of irritation in eyes or muscle pain. Adenovirus appears to be like a common respiratory tract infection. Antibiotics do not properly work when the patient is affected with this virus. If the symptoms persist for more than two to three days, the cause should get investigated without further delay, a senior official of the private hospital said.last_img read more
