Wedding make-up on myself.

Wedding make-up.

I had the pleasure of attending my niece's wedding yesterday and on myself I decided to opt for a smoky eye look and nude lips.  I was wearing a Topshop green dress and so wanted something a little dramatic to compliment it.I had prepped and had a bit of a tan with my beloved Sisley fake tan, I then covered any imperfections with my Nars tinted moisturiser and Bobbi Brown foundation stick, I don't tend to use powder as [...]

Tina (smoky eye day look.)

I often get asked how long it takes me to do my make-up, (it depends on what time I have and what I need that day!)Skin prep is very important to me, so making sure I use the right moisturiser for my skin, (depending on the time of year and my skins needs.)  As I am getting older, my skin is more dry and I feel like I need a bit of a glow! so I always opt for [...]

Make-up lessons galore and a Happy new year to you all!xxx

I have been inundated recently with requests for make-up lessons.  From Mothers who are at their wits ends from their daughters contouring habits, Husbands who have been constantly asked for a make-up lesson with me and also from ladies requiring help with applying their own make-up - we are never taught at school are we!! I believe this should be part of the curriculum!  Make-up is such a powerful tool.Christmas has been a very busy period for me and [...]

If I don't wear any make-up, I do feel quite low! make-up is such a powerful tool and when used [...]

Red lips and leopard print

Red lips and leopard print…

With the gloomy weather surely there is light at the end of the tunnel? or in my case, my make-up bag?!  Dark days call for a bright pop of colour so I opted for my trusty MAC lip pencil in High energy today and wrapped up in my Topshop leopard print coat.  If you are going to be wearing a red lip, make sure you get rid of any redness first in your face, (especially around your mouth, nose [...]

Beautiful before and after makeup.

How to treat/camouflage dark circles…

One of the most common concerns for the ladies that I meet are dark circles.  Dark circles are different to an eye bag, and eye bag is a "sag" and no amount of make-up can conceal this, (I will blog about this hopefully on a later date.)  There may be different causes for the dark circles, one could be hereditary even.  All is not lost, as we have my secret weapon of choice...make-up!Firstly, you do have to make sure [...]
