Christmas is nearly here!! 🎄🎅🏻🎁 

As is the tutorial for this makeup look, which will be live on Christmas Day.
I decided to create something less traditional this year - I think the liner & Red lips have been done.
‘Peach Fudge’ is a delicious warm ombré of matte eyeshadows into a duochrome glow.

Smoked Out Winged Liner

This week I filmed a tutorial featuring a winged liner that has been smoked out.

Ordinarily, the smoke would be on top of the liner but I took inspiration from the recent ‘reversed winged liner’ that Kim Kardashian has been seen sporting, which extends out straight from the lower lash line, and I put my own spin on it by extending the smoke all the way out to the tip of the liner as well as lining the top lash line.
This results in a clean crisp finish on top, and a smoky sultry finish to the bottom.

As you can see from the two images above, you can pair this eye makeup with a Red glossy lip and straight hair, or, you can change it up with a nude lip and bouncy curly hair!

Two contrasting finishes with just one eye look.

The tutorial for this makeup will be up on my channel Sunday, 1pm GMT. Click here to the subscribe to my YouTube for free;

METALLIC BLUE

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.

Here is a link to the tutorial: https://youtu.be/pwHyk5LicS8

MELT COSMETICS PRIME ROSE COLLECTION

These lipsticks were kindly sent to me just before Christmas, and they’re a welcomed addition to my ever growing Melt collection.

In this particular assembly there are 5 shades in total, all in Soft Rose hues. The formula is creamy but sets to a matte finish, and in my experience they wear relatively well.

You’ll be pleased to hear that this collection is all VEGAN, which is a massive plus!

The shade names are:

Old Rose
Mum
Stepford
On-The-Go
Old Fashioned

You can purchase the full collection for $65.00 on the Melt Cosmetics website, OR, you can purchase them separately at $13.00 each.

VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP TUTORIALS - PART 2

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! 

SMOKEY BLUE MAKEUP

With the party season upon us, I thought it was time to create something super smokey but with a splash of vibrancy! And as I have Brown eyes, an ideal colour to emphasis them is Blue.

Here I used a mix of creams and powders in a Matte and Metallic finish. This creates texture and adds depth to the look.

The tutorial for this makeup will be up on my YouTube on the 27th November!

It’s in association with Simple, so I will be showing you how to remove this heavy makeup so that you are not left with the dreaded ‘Panda Eye’ effect.

Happy New Year Beauties. 
My first upload of 2017 is a soft neutral smokey eye with equally neutral face makeup and a nude lip.

This can be worn as a soft daytime smoke without the Black accent on the outer edges, or, you can pair it with a pinky lip to give the overall makeup a subtle colour change.

DATE MAKEUP FOR DAYTIME AND EVENING

Valentines Day is on the approach! Whether you’re going out with your partner, on a blind date, or even out with your girls to paint the town Red, this soft fresh makeup is perfect for any occasion AND it’s suitable for both daytime and nighttime.

If you’re not a fan of wearing strip lashes you can substitute them with individual cluster lashes. They will look more natural and can be layered up for added drama. Individual lashes are super comfy and are available in different sizes. One pack will often contain a row of short, medium and long clusters so you can customise the shape and length each time you apply them.

As the eye makeup is subtle, you could throw into your handbag a lipstick with a splash of colour to take you from daytime to evening with little effort.

TOO FACED ‘BORN THIS WAY’ CONCEALER SWATCHES

This week I received the entire range of the Too Faced ‘Born This Way’ concealers. There are 10 shades in the collection, varying from the lightest colour ‘very fair’ to the darkest shade ‘deep’. So no matter your skin tone you will find a suitable match within this selection. 

The consistency of these concealers are creamy and smooth - not too thick nor too runny, they’ve got it just right!
I’ve had a brief play with these but I really need to test them out on more clients with varying degrees of skin pigmentation to gain a more concise view as to whether they are as good as they claim.
So far though, I am impressed with them. I personally don’t have dark circles, but the formula does cover my breakouts when they occur. Having tried them under my eyes I was pleased with the results in the respect that the product does not sit in fine lines, nor does it make the eyes appear crepey like many concealers tend to do. 

Too Faced have factored in a blend of colour correctors to counteract dark circles when used under the eyes, resulting in a brightening effect without the visible influence of tiny light reflecting particles. 
Another great aspect to these concealers is that they are oil-free! Perfect for those of us that are Oily, but a bonus for all skin types as ‘oil’ as an ingredient tends to aid creasing in concealers. Once your skin warms up the product under the eye, the oil can often separate from the pigment creating both creasing and caking! This isn’t necessarily a problem for all concealers that contain oil, but it is something I have known to be true for many.

 Here are some other pro features: 

* Coconut Water helps delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels without over hydrating
* Infused with the resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity
* Hyaluronic Acid provides long-lasting, skin-balancing hydration for a smoother, more youthful appearance

Guide to the shades: 
* Very Fair - Pale with pink undertones
* Fair - Light with pink undertones
* Light - Golden undertones
* Light Medium - Medium with peach undertones
* Medium - Tan with golden undertones
* Medium Tan - Pink undertones
* Tan - Golden undertones
* Deep Tan - Golden undertones
* Dark - Golden undertones
* Deep - Pink undertones

Side note to the shade guide: Yes the 3 lightest shades appear very similar on the swatch, but it’s the undertones you need to consider when purchasing your shade. They might look the same on the photo but will translate very differently under the eyes if the undertone doesn’t suit / match your skin. 

These concealers are available for purchase worldwide ‘here’ for £21.00 GBP or $28.00 USD.

SMOKY PEACH EYE MAKEUP TUTORIAL

This intense smoky eye is suitable for a night out with girls, date night, Prom or any other evening event.

I’ve used Peach as my accent colour, but you can change it up to suit the colour of your outfit.
Just use the same principle whereby you blend a lighter transition shade (in your chosen colour scheme) through the socket, and build it up using deeper versions of that colour until you’re ready add in Charcoal / Black at the very outer edge for dimension.

All the products used have been linked in the description bar - please note that the Sweet Peach Palette is currently sold out online but should be back soon.
