ROSE CHAMPAGNE

This week I filmed a look using warm eyeshadows with a beautiful Champagne shimmer!
In the flesh these colours are so much more true to Rose & Champagne in hue, but they have photographed a little bronzy, due to my change of lighting.

The tutorial for this look will be up on my channel this! www.youtube.com/smiles2310

I used a mix of MAC & MakeupGeek eyeshadows to create this look. The lashes I used are from Eldora False Eyelashes, and they are a multi-layered set for added volume and dimension.

Full details will be included in the next post along with the video link!

Decanting & Melting Lipsticks

As a makeup artist, it can be a pain trolling through endless tubes of lipsticks to try and find the right colour.
And don’t get me started on organising your kit to travel with SO many lippies! You end up trying to choose your favourites just so you don’t have to pack all of them.

My go-to method for having them all in one place and preventing having to leave any behind when travelling is to decant and melt them down into 1 convenient palette. 
I am over the heartbreak of not wanting to demolish a perfectly moulded lipstick, the novelty wears off when you go through so many.
But no doubt many of you will watch my tutorial on this method and go into sheer panic! 
Fear not… It doesn’t ruin your lippy, or change the consistency. The lipstick was originally melted when poured into the mould, we are just re-melting it and setting it into a new shape. 

As a makeup artist, this is super convenient, sanitary and makes life so much easier as you can see all the colours through the clear plastic lid. 
PLUS… If you are decanting MAC lipsticks, you can take 6 empty tubes back to a MAC store and they will give you a free lipstick. 
You can also combine eyeshadow pots, foundation bottles, etc…

The tutorial on this method will follow this post later!

kvnggtee asked:

How can I apply powder on my face without looking totally ridiculous? I HATE taking pictures and I look two shades lighter than I'm supposed to 😩 HELP!

I know the story all to well, and it’s a dilemma many people face; you apply your makeup and it looks great so you decide to take a selfie… Then all of a sudden your makeup looks awful and you want to reach for the makeup remover right away. There’s nothing more frustrating than cakey skin that make you look like you’ve stepped out of a 1940s film with way too much powder on your face. Here’s a few of the things that could be causing the problem:
