NEW YEARS LOOK!

SO HAPPY NEW YEAR...I planned to filmed two looks one bright and one smokie, but I got sick and still am sick.  I suffer the worst migraines known to man and so I skipped filming one and thought someone out there will mostly definitely have a smokie eye, in fact I have one up some time ago, same process I would just add black glitter over the top and its good to go.  So I thought I'd challenge you to wear a bright look in a cloud of smokie eyes and stand out and look extra fab.

Finally I can't believe a year has flown by already, my next video will be my favorite products used in 2012.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, I pray that you are blessed and had a fab 2012, if nothing at all you made it to 2013 and that is a blessing.  I pray your 2013 will start of safely, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE SAFE, YOUR LIFE OTHER PEOPLE LIVES ARE WORTH SOMETHING TO SOMEONE.  NO DRINKING AND DRIVING, NO DRUGS! HAVE SAFE GOOD FUN... If I sound like your mama, then yes I sound like your mama! :)

Lastly thank you for being on this journey with me, I hope for more inspiration and many more looks and more progression on my blog.  
I love you all for loving my blog and embracing what I love, I hope it help folks out in www land.

No Fuss Date Makeup

Hey ladies, here is my take on date makeup, off course you can wear this for whatever reason and whatever season, even bridal, for bridal it would be a little more high lighting, less brighter lip more contouring, on the  outer corner I would add a deeper brown to better define the eye.  I will do bridal makeup soon, so not to worry.
For this, its rather simple not complicated and is easy to do, for a date you don't want to look way to done up, you want to just make yourself look pretty but not with tones of makeup caked on, not that is ever good.  Not so much on the eyes because of the bright lip, which if you wanted to you could wear something less bright, its about the balance, bright lip less activity on the eye.  I hope you enjoy because I loved this look.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, lets all be thankful for what this year has brought us good and bad we have learned something valuable at least for me I have.

Thank you all so much for helping my views grow, thank you for coming to my blog and thank you for your love, you all have NO IDEA HOW MUCH IT MEANS TO ME.  Just to let you know, it means the world to me that even one person comes to this blog, as I put in so much hard work into coming up with looks, recording and editing them.  I hope 2013 bring more views and more ideas... THANK YOU :)

NOTE: I WILL NOT BE UPLOADING NEXT WEEK, HOWEVER I WILL POST A NEW YEARS LOOK ON THE 30TH DECEMBER 2012!

New Purchases

Hi All, more shopping, its a small amount, which is good and I get to talk a little bit about the products, which you may or may not think about when buy or why you should buy it.  I really aim to not just show you things but to explain why I buy them and how I intend to use them and if they are good why and if not why not.  This may be a small change, shorter new purchases and more talk about the products a little bit more.  I extended the video's so to be able to communicate with you all a lot more.  

So please feel free to contact me, ask me question makeup related, for advice and where I can I will always be of any help to you all.  

Oh it was just my birthday on Sunday 9th Dec and I turned a big 'ol beautiful, happy, healthy and thankful 31years old :)  Happy Birthday Me

Lilac Surprise

Hey all, I hope you are all well, here is another look for you all.  an easy lilac pink look, I really like this look because it was requested by my mum but I really enjoyed putting it together.  I also wanted something that was easy to do and less intensive.  This could easily be date makeup because its not so in your face.
I really hope you enjoy this loo, because I sure did.

If you have any colour idea's please leave them in in the comment section.

Plum Eyes

Hi all, here is a look I really really loved, plum eyes, this works with all eye colours, all skin tones and is such an easy look to wear.  I love that if you want light application you can do so and if you want a deeper look you can pack on the colour, it does not look cakey but just looks super beautiful.
My only gripe is, Chanel claims that their D'Ombre shadows are creaseless and long lasting I can not agree, I tested it out and it did crease on me. That is why I used a primer at the beginning. If you have oily lids then I highly recommend using a primer first, that will allow this look to last you all day and night.

This look can easily go from day to night by switching from a nude lip to a brighter lip and adding a small amount of black in the crease to smoke it up.

I hope you enjoy this because I sure did, see you all soon.

Navy Blue Eyes

Hiiii, here is a look I dedicated to my best friend in life Sian, yes you love @KinkerThanMost and off course for all the ladies that watch who perhaps didn't know what to do with that navy blue eyeshadow, well here is an idea, also another way to make use of glitter.  I hope you like it this, personally I loved it and plan to rock it out again.
This is a very very simple look.

Day Wearable Green Eyes

Hello all, here is another tutorial for you all, more of a wintry look, easy to wear for the day, the colours are not too loud pairing with a mulberry lip which I have to be honest and say I wouldn't wear often but I actually liked it, makes me appreciate deeper toned lipsticks.  I also used an orange brown blush that works so well with ebony skin but will do well on any skin tone lightly applied and further back on the cheeks.  I loved this look.  I hope you like it too.

I have just learned how to enlarge my video's and how to get longer video uploaded, I found that the sequences I had where to short and you may not get a good feel of how a look comes together, however I don't plan to make the video's longer than 15 minutes as it may be way too long and you may get bored, I wouldn't want that :)

Sultry Golden and Orange

Hey all, I am back with another look, rather simple really, it looks nice because of the blending and when you want a look to looking amazing blend blend blend.  The eye is made sultry by using black eyeliner going higher on the outer corners.  I use my all time favorite eyeliner Avon Super Shock in Black.  I decided to use a champagne shimmery colour in the water line which opens up my eyes, instead of using black which comes of a little harsh, however you are welcome to switch it up and use a black eyeliner in the waterline.

I loved rocking this look because it wasn't too busy, not too many colour's but looks well put together.  It also versatile, you can wear it going, a summer look or fall look.

See you in the next video

Purple Lined Eye and Red Lip

Hey, since I do a lot of in depth looks, using loads of brushes, this on the other hand isn't, firstly there is no brush used.  It is my go to look when I don't want to wear eyeshadow but want colour, good thing is you can choose which ever colour you love and I love purple, I have said this before brown eyes and purple go very well, it makes your eyes appear brighter.
I choose the thousand watt smile purely because I wanted to show you that red lipstick makes your teeth appear a whole lot whiter, that's not to say you shouldn't brush your teeth, as does blue makes your teeth appear whiter and makes the whites of your eyes whiter.

I forgot to say I used red cherry lashes in 523 and mascara by Rimmel called Lash Accelerator

I hope you enjoy, I really love this look, I wear it a lot, sometime I change the liner to blue.
