Chocolate Smokie Eyes and Bright Lip


Hey beauties, I'm back as promised a dark eye and bright lip, this is not my usual look, I would pair this with a nude lip, however i'm getting into bright lips and it is truly growing on me.  The first picture is just to show you all with red lip by Tom Ford in Narcotic Rouge.  My favourite red lipstick, costs a packet but goes on so well and lasts and lasts and lasts.  I hope you all like this look and I hope you have fun recreating.  As I say use the cosmetics you have if you don't have what I have, trust me it will turn out the same, its not the products but the technique.

Until next week beauties

Gold Going Out Look

Hey beauties, here is a super pretty gold going out look.  For me there isn't a shade that can not rock this look, it looks good and everyone, most of the jazz is hidden when looking straight ahead but blink and there you have all the glittery gold popping and rocking off your lids. The glowing glossy skin, if you don't like that then just don't add it in, with makeup its all possible, but you like it then I am glad. The lip, if your new to watching my video's a nude lip is most often what I wear but colour is coming ladies, however the uniform tends to be busy eye simple lip but there are many looks that work with busy or dark eye with a dark or bright lip, I have the look coming next.

Personally I loved the way this look turned out.   hope you have fun recreating this look.

Flawless Foundation Application

Hey beauties, what is the point of posting video's if I don't share how to apply the most important thing FOUNDATION and CONCEALER.  I have an old foundation video up but they are many ways to apply foundation, my last video I showed using my hands which is one of the best ways to apply foundation but it is dirty because you end up with foundation all over your hands and some may not like that, but I'll tell you why its good.  The product gets warms up by your hands, a great way to regulate how much you want and you can really work the foundation into your skin to get that second skin look, if you work in circular motions you can get a flawless finish and if you pat you the foundation you can really blend it into your skin and look like you don't have foundation on.

This time however I choose to show you using a round top kabuki brush done by sigma.
Personally there is only one foundation that matches my skin and that is MAC Pro Longwear in NC50.  Now I have an oily T Zone therefore I need a foundation that stops with however this foundation is way to drying so i mix it to minimize they dying feeling, I also love the finish of mixing my foundation gives me.  If you have ever used this foundation its goes on great stays on but when taking it off you really have to tug at your face and I don't see why I must fight with my foundation to get it off.  I shall film a tutorial on my foundations soon.  

You tend to see me with foundation already on but you get to see I do have blemishes from old spots, I want to show you just how well you can cover these blemishes without looking like you caked on foundation, I truly hope it helps you.

Bridal

Hey beauties, here is my take on a bridal look, for the first time in London the sun was out and wanted to take advantage of the natural sunlight, and thought it best to do this bridal look.  I hope you enjoy this, its a lot longer because I wanted to to share as much information as I could for this look.  I did add glitter in this look but if you would rather not have glitter you are more than welcome not to add the glitter but I think adding the glitter sets it apart and makes it look rather nice.
I hope you enjoy this, I loved filming this look and once we get better weather i will do more bridal looks as they are so many different types of bridal looks.  If you would like me to do a certain colour please leave a comment below.

I show you the creams, foundations and powders used to save on time.

Favourites

Hi there my beauties, yep back to normal, here are the products just some of what I Loved using last year, I may just do another one as I have since added to my collection.
I Hope I give you all ideas.  Some may think its all about big brands I guess I would have agreed with that 2 or 3 years ago but Super-drugs and Boots products have since come a long way and can in fact match and at times surpass the bigger brands eg as much as a love Chanel D'Ombre they are not long lasting on my lids and would easily give Maybelline Colour Tattoo the edge plus the cost is way less that the £23 of Chanel to the £4.99 of Maybelline, in terms of the technology used I would say easily say Chanel and the textures they are dealing with are indeed world class.
I hope you like please excuse the dusty desk top :)
