If you haven’t already seen the editorial image for the new ‘Neo Noir’ collection from KIKO cosmetics then Google it now!!
It’s all about the eyes and subtle glowing skin, simply captivating! The PR company for KIKO contacted me and asked if would like to sample some of the new collection and naturally I said ‘YES’.
I just had to recreate the eyes from that image, and of course, I filmed it.
Don’t mind me, just pumping out the tutorials like they’re going out of style.
This is a watered down explanation of what you should have for a basic cosplay makeup kit. If you’re a cosplayer who never really wears or ever wore makeup in your daily life, you might not know much about what you should pick up to start yourself off. If you’re just looking for a tutorial to give you a basic kit for when you want to look good at a con or for a photo shoot, this is for you.
Lupine looks super cute in this video too, so I would…. take a gander…
Hey guys so I made a quick lil guide to contouring on a masculine face with our unisex contour kit! The trick here is to use slanted lines to make the face appear more chiseled and, if you have a narrower face like me, wider and more traditionally masculine. Apply the contour shade under jaw and cheek bones and around temples, and then parallel your lines with highlighter. Set with a translucent powder!
Since our product is made to mimic the natural pigmentation of the face, the lighter shades of our contour kit are less pigmented than the darker ones. This is simply because there is less natural pigment in lighter complexions and thus less color is required to dramatically change the appearance of the face. Indeed, the “highlighter” in the lightest kit (pictured here) is simply a balm to balance the appearance of areas with makeup and areas without.
The tutorial above is for those of you who prefer cool toned eyeshadow looks. Not everyone likes or suits warm eyeshadow - which we have come to associate with Valentine’s Day makeup tutorials nowadays. So this halo effect eyeshadow is perfect for those of you that love a smoky eye with more of a sombre finish.
WARM BROWNS WITH A HINT OF VIOLET My latest tutorial uses the exact same technique as the tutorial above except I’ve swapped the colours from cool to warm, and added in an accent colour.
TWO-TONED BLUE This tutorial is still one of my favourites! If you’re a fan of colour then definitely check out this tutorial, it will not disappoint. Who says you have to sport Red this Valentine’s Day?
COOL PINKS & BLACK LINER If you prefer something more subtle then take a look at this makeup tutorial. Simplicity at it’s best… but still on trend for Valentine’s!
TWO-TONE SPRING INSPIRED CAT-EYE Another favourite of mine. This is a look I get a lot of requests for from my clients. If you love to sport a sexy feline eye then you need to try out these techniques!
Whether you have naturally long hair or you wear hair extensions, you can create this blown-out braid!
This is a great tutorial for those of you that cannot get to grips with braiding your own hair, whether you struggle to master the pattern or just find it too fiddly. This a simple cheat that will change your braiding game forever.
All you need is clear hair elastics, mousse & hairspray for added grip, and a spare 5 minutes! It doesn’t get much easier than that.
You could sport this gorgeous cheat-braid to a festival this Summer, or, you could strategically place some gypsophila down the braid and turn it into a stunning bridal / bridesmaid hairstyle.

TIP: Here’s an easy way to make veins using red cotton or wool. This technique has been around for many years but I’ve never seen anyone use it directly on skin. Pull some red wool apart so you see the individual fibers. Stick them down to your skin with prosaide or latex. Use a needle to adjust the shape while the glue is still wet. I made a quick infected zombie bite using this technique but you could use it anywhere.
