The Electric Current Facial

Oh hey you guysss! As you may already know, I like to blog about my makeup related happenings, my wandering thoughts regarding makeup, or just anything to do with beautiful makeup products. This time, I delved a little deeper….what goes on underneath the makeup? I love skin, and skincare is step no.1 to making makeup […]

INCOGNITO MUA

“In order to observe you have to be incognito”.  This is something I’ve wanted to research & write about for an absolute age. I am constantly wondering what it must be like for someone to come and get their makeup done – to trust me with their face. Your face is your face, no one […]

Breakup and Makeup

If there’s one thing that can make you feel 50 times better pre/mid/post breakup, its making sure your face looks absolutely banging..slaying..fleeking..whatever the kids are saying these days. And drinking gin. Obvs. You can refresh your look, refresh your mind, refresh your mood with a few changes to the old makeup bag. Sceptical? It’s true! In my […]

Fave Foundation Brushes

So many people still don’t use a brush to put their foundation on. It’s not wrong, really. But what’s the reason for not doing? Many think it’s quicker to use fingers, don’t have time to be messing around with a brush, or generally don’t have a clue which foundation brush to select from the 5628471 […]

KYLIE

King Kylie, Instagram tells me she’s called these days. The 18 year old with 51 million followers, a flawless face, her own makeup range, lip fillers, zillions of dollars and a worldwide copied style….The Midas Touch comes to mind. Am I jealous? Fascinated? Disgusted? Should I be leaping in to a long, mindnumbing preach about […]

The Bronzer Blog

I truly believe all women should have a bronzer in their makeup bag. It’s just a staple. A touch of colour in the skin works wonders. And stops people asking if you’re ill. ‘You look peaky’. HATE that. Choosing a bronzer can be tricky. There’s a fine line between an orange face and a beachy […]

BLACK EYES ARE NOT FOR ME

Hello makeup lovers. Welcome to this blog, where my thoughts have wandered backwards, re-wound to a time when I would regularly wear this makeup look. This look? While others may love this look for themselves (no judgement!), this look is my WORST possible makeup look. Why? I shall tell you. Breaking it down, I have […]

HOW TO KEEP YOUR FOUNDATION ON.

Hey you guys. As you might already know, I get hounded with makeup questions, daily. (Not complaining). Second to ‘How did you become a Makeup Artist?’, is ‘Why doesn’t my foundation stay on?’ As far as I’m concerned, theres 4 questions you’ve got to ask yourself. The first is extremely relevant and isn’t what you’d […]

THE MAKEUP ERASER

Ok so just a quick one. We all know taking off makeup is the biggest drain on earth (apart from cleaning brushes *kills self*). But we have to do it. I kept seeing this ‘Makeup Eraser‘ all over Instagram/FB etc, and of course, sceptical as ever, imagined it to be a load of crap. How […]

THE NORTH-SOUTH MAKEUP DIVIDE

  After the chaos I like to call Christmas, I was absolutely exhausted this year. So this week, I took myself to London for a rest/sit and do all the boring admin stuff I’d neglected through December. Over the past year, I’ve spent a lot of time working in our wonderful capital, however, this week […]

NUDE VS DARK?

Me? I’m more of a dark lip kinda gal. Or any bright/dark colour really. I feel like my lips disappear a bit with a nude lippy on. However, I’d say I’m probably part of the minority – the general female population seems to love a nude lip. Swarms of women at MAC begging for Velvet Teddy!! Bloody […]

Personal Training Experiment!

At the end of November, I was approached by a Personal Trainer from ‘Dedicated To: Fitness’, who had an idea in mind. Gaz has been a personal trainer for years, but has only just started using his Social Media pages properly. Obviously, he could see I’m a Social Media lover. His idea was simple – he […]
