How I Became A Make-up Artist..

Hey lovely people!

I realised i never actually introduced myself formally when i first started blogging and making videos, so i wanted to share my story of how i became a make-up artist and the kind of work that i do.

I am thinking of doing a video on “how to become a make-up artist” with tips on how to make a successful career out of make-up artistry, if this is something you guys would be interested then be sure to let me know and i can make it for you.

I would love it if you guys supported my youtube channel by liking, subscribing and sharing my videos it would mean the world to me 🙂

Pretty Day eyes to Sexy Smouldering eyes with just one product!!

Hey Guys,

I’ve never been a massive smokey eyes girl but one of the main questions i get asked is “How to do smokey eyes” , as well as how to “take day make-up to night make-up”.

So i have combined the two and better yet the smokey eye only needs one product, so you can take it to work with you and be sexy for those after work drinks 😉

Products Used:

Paint Pot in shades Perky, Soft Ochre By MAC

Colour Tattoo in shade Tough As Taupe By Mabelline

Hey Guys!

Lately i have been loving the pin up style, unfortunately this style requires curls and my hair is naturally dead straight, as well as that i am pretty lazy when it comes to my hair AND i don’t want to damage it with heat every day.

So this is my nightly routine for heatless effortless curls! it only takes about three minutes prep and you wake up with gorgeous curls 🙂

Products used:

– Tangle Teezer

– Ellnett By L’oreal

How to get HUGE natural lashes..FOR REAL!!

Hey Guys,

My lashes have doubled in growth in the last two months..for real!

I had to do a blog because i really want y’all to hear me when i say “this lash serum works!” its called Flash and all you do is line your top lash line with it before bed every day and in 6 to 8 weeks you’ll start noticing how much your natural lashes have grown.

The reason it takes 6 to 8 weeks is because your lashes have a growth cycle that has three phases –

1. Anagen — the growth phase

2. Catagen — the intermediate phase (short resting after growth)

3. Telogen — the shedding phase

So to make sure it works you do it everyday, and you do have to be patient..but trust me its worth it!

Watch this video for my complete list of tips to ensure it works properly! and my other tips to ensure your lashes are under optimal condition to grow!

Products used:

Flash Lash Amplifying Serum

Lash Princess Mascara By Essence Cosmetics

I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara

Holiday Lips!

Hey y’all!

I found the perfect product for bright holiday lips! If you (like me) are bad at keeping lipstick neat and tidy Lipstains are perfect for you. I love having bright lips, but when I am working, eating or socialising lipstick staying in place is the LAST thing I want to worry about.

The other day while I was taking my frequent (and quite frankly therapeutic) stroll down the makeup isle of Priceline I found these Lipstains by Savvy..they are only $8.99 and come in amazingly bright colours and they actually stay on for ages then fade away nicely and I love them! That’s pretty much it..here is a picture of me wearing the shade watermelon 🙂 xxx

Happy Holidays!
