Aqua and Purple look – a FOTD

There wont be many pictures of this look as I look like a complete nut in them. I hate taking photo’s of myself, I don’t know what happens, I seem to loose control of my eyes and end up looking totally crazy. Well I don’t think that I look like a nutcase 100% of the time, but maybe that’s just me being delusional….

I’ll admit this isn’t my greatest blending here but it is my absolute favourite colour combination for eye shadows.

Anywhoo onto the products I used and the least crazy looking photo’s!

From Tired to Christmas Party Ready / Products and Photo’s

gold eyeliner with rhinestones

I know this look isn’t super original (red and gold for the holidays, who would have thought!?!). But I think it turned out pretty well considering how dead tired I looked at the start! Oh and in the photo’s you’ll notice a black mark in my fringe, its mascara (don’t ask). Also sorry its not completely clear, I moved the zoom and didn’t notice I was too far away until it was way too late, (like after I edited). (more…)

Mehron Celebre HD Cream Foundation a Review

MehronHDFoundationOver the past few months I’ve used this foundation numerous times and it fast became a new favourite, the Mehron Celebre HD Pro Cream Makeup.

Applied with a damp sponge or foundation brush the foundation itself is easy to blend and build up to a level of coverage you desire. I also find it works as a regular concealer quite well too. The only time I have actually used a concealer with it is a salmon one under my eyes, it disguises everything else with ease. The end result, a semi-dewy glow (un-powdered of course) which lasts quite a few hours before touch-ups are needed (unless the weather is particularly hot). It also photographs beautifully! (more…)

Dramatic Red & Purple Tutorial / Products & Photo’s

 

eyesSometimes I just feel like using everything in sight, as you can see this was one of those nights.

Before filming I knew I wanted to use some products from Illamasqua’s Theatre of the Nameless collection (Berber pigment and Kontrol Lipstick) and I can’t seem to put the Sugarpill products down so they were an inevitable inclusion.

Like I mentioned in the video for most this is completely un-wearable possibly even for fancy dress but hopefully some parts will be of use in some way.

So with all of that out of the way onto the tutorial, (products and pictured are listed below). (more…)

Illamasqua Product Overview Part 4

Today I have part 4 of the Illamasqua products overview check out part 1, part 2 and part 3 if you haven’t already! If you haven’t noticed Illamasqua has to be one of my favourite brands, I always find a product I need!

illamasqua motto eye brow cake

 

Motto Eye Brow Cake is a warm taupe brow colour perfect for non golden toned blondes. Applied with a light stroke it effortlessly fills in brows for a fuller look, but applied with a mixing medium it gives a very defined brow. The compact also has a handy mirror in the lid for application anywhere. This has been my go to brow colour for a few months now and I’ve found it perfect for my colouring.

 

The rest of the products are from the Theatre of the Nameless Collection.

Halloween–Corpse Bride Practice UPDATED

Here is another look I had a stab at, the Corpse Bride from Tim Burtons fabulous The Nightmare Before Christmas. I was actually having a go at this because it will be a friends costume and I’ll be doing the makeup for her. I just wanted to see what works and have a play around with what products I’ll use. Because it’s a rough go I didn’t bother with blocking corspe bride makeupout my eyebrows and didn’t focus on the skin and lines as much as I will on the day.

I really love this as a costume idea.  I am a massive Burton fan to begin but also because no matter what face your pulling you still look sad- thanks to the eyebrows. This is a great (although extreme) example on how much eyebrows actually make a difference to your overall look.

Mermaid Makeup Tutorial – Halloween

Mermaid MakeupAfter doing the wave envy trial video I felt the need to do a mermaid makeup tutorial so here it is!

As it wasn’t planned I wasn’t entirely sure where the look was going to end up but I’m fairly happy with the outcome. The main thing (if I had to do it again) I would change would be bringing in the scales into the top and center of my forehead. Plus maybe filling in the eyebrows a mix of blue and purple, but of course these things only hit me when I’m looking at still images after I’ve filmed. Oh yeah and not doing it when my eye’s were gross and death like ha!

Halloween– Harlequin Practice Makeup

Here in Australia Halloween unfortunately isn’t as widely celebrated as it is abroad, but it has been getting more popular in the recent years. Which is something I’m excited for as I love to dress up!

IMG_6011I did my first test run just the other day for a Harlequin look that one of my friends wants this year. She was rather specific and gave me a photo of the costume she plans on wearing and the makeup she’d like. (Here is the original look, check it out her’s is AMAZING! I love it!)
