MONARCH WRATH MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Image
Hello Readers,
So I have finally done my first makeup tutorial for this year, staring it off with a new palette I got from Kat Von D her monarch palette which contains warm shades including a gorgeous burnt red color that I incorporated into this look.
I have made this look friendly for hooded eyes girls to recreate and just as an added bonus if you have blue eyes of any shade then this will make them POP!

For the step by step on how to get this makeup look, please watch the tutorial

BAKING YOUR FACE!! for a flawless poreless look.

Image
Hello fellow readers,
So due to requests from a few of my lovely subscribers on my previous videos from last week I have filmed and uploaded a demo tutorial style video for "face bake" now this has become a popular trend it started to become the "new" hot thing todo last year (2015) and even tho I have been doing this for years personally as I learned this in makeup academy years as I am a trained MUA, but this makeup technique of baking the face is 100+ years old as it was originally used as a stage makeup tip for keeping the thick and emollient face makeup - foundation.

So I hope you do enjoy this video and the tips I give throughout for dry skin and oily skin so hopefully you can all use this technique to keep your makeup on ALL DAY!

Image
Hello Everybody, Today’s going to be a little bit of different style video. So I brought some new makeup from a new essence collection at the Drugstore this past weekend and I wanted to create a look and just play with the new goodies I brought for the 1st time on camera.  Share the experience and thoughts as they happen on camera with you guys, so it's not a GRWM nor is it a Makeup Tutorial really ..... so I’ve just called it Let’s Play with Makeup.  A new series and idea I wanted to play around with on my channel, so if you guys enjoy this please let me know in the comments section of the video, which I have linked bellow for you! Enjoy xx  - www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9YW_xf9i-U

Anywho! There's a direct link to the empties video if your interested, Enjoy :-)

Sephora Makeup Haul & More!

Image
Hello Everyone,
So you knew it was coming and to be fair I can say that it's the fact I make beauty videos it was needed for future videos, truth of the matter really is I love new makeup and Sephora and the Drugstore is my heaven on earth. So I was excited to get these in the mail as I've been wanting these beauty products for awhile.

NOTE: I will be doing Makeup Tutorial looks with the new Kat Von D palette I got as well as review and demos of the foundations and more.

I also touched bases in this video on the background which I did change to just white, but it was a 50/50 reaction to the plain white background taking away my Star Wars Bedroom background, which I had previously for 6 months. I wanted to work around this problem as best I could and make close to everyone happy :) so I have made set videos with or without the white background, as personally I do feel the quality and color is better and more true to color as I am seeing which shows up better on video with the w…

Happy New Year & Best in Beauty 2015 Awards!

Hello,
First up I'd like to wish all my readers a Happy New Year, and I hope this year will be a wonderful one for you all.
So starting of the new year on my makeup channel in it's 6th year running it's that time to take a quick moment and look back at last years winners and products that stood out to me as ticking all the boxes, I have loved using these makeup items week in and out or even everyday for a month or 2 they are to me truly worth the money or going out there to find.
