Simple Makeup Tutorial: Everyday Glam

Looking glamorous all day long isn’t easy, but it is achievable! Here’s a subtle glam makeup look that you can wear during the daytime for everyday occasions, as well as to an evening event. Enjoy!   Start with the basics:   Begin with a clean base and moisturise your skin with the Liz Earle Moisturiser, as this will act as your skin primer. Apply your foundation.   Focus on the eyes:   Prep your eyes for a bit of glamour by applying the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 in Creamy Beige. This will be your eyeshadow primer, a base which you’ll build your colour up from.

Here’s how you can apply blusher like a pro

The most frequent question I’m asked by my clients is how to apply blusher correctly and effectively. It just seems that when it comes to applying the powdery pink stuff, no one really knows where exactly it should sit on the cheeks.   The main thing to remember is that blusher generally sits somewhere between your contour and highlighting shades, with your contour shade being applied just below the cheekbone where your skin sinks in, and your highlighter begin applied directly above it on the higher plain of your face.   Sounds a little too complicated? Take a look in the mirror and smile. Do you see the apples of your cheeks? Gently dab a small amount of blush to this area and blend in well with swirling motions using […]

Product review of the week: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil

Achieving the perfect brow isn’t exactly a walk in the park, which is why I’m fully appreciative of brow tools, which help to make eyebrow pencil applications all the more easy. Today I’d like to talk about one of my favourite eyebrow tools on the market, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and how this little firecracker of a product is shaping the way I apply my eyebrow looks both personally and professionally.   The review:   The product itself is double edged, with a spooley brush on one end and an ultra-fine pencil on the other. The great thing about this pencil is that it provides a very natural finish and because of that, it’s easy to fill in your eyebrows finely.   The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz […]

Here’s how you can achieve summer’s hottest new makeup trend: non-touring

Non-touring ins and outs:   Move over contouring and make way for this season’s hottest beauty trend: non-touring. Unlike contouring, which can be quite heavy on the face, non-touring is a light and low-maintenance makeup trend that’s the perfect solution to makeup application for hot and humid summer days. Non-touring leaves your skin feeling fresh and looking dewy instead of caked up and that’s why I’m loving it at the moment!   But what exactly is non-touring and how does it work? Non-touring focuses on highlighting facial features with light strobing in order to make the skin appear fresh and healthy. Successful non-touring basically looks like no-makeup makeup, so the trick is to accentuate your best features  without looking like you’ve applied anything to your face.   Here’s what you’ll […]
