My Very First Day

Its my very first day on here, I was recommended by a friend to create a blog. Im a makeup artist and my life revolves around makeup, everyday is a new idea, the simplest things are the biggest inspirations and the littlest detail creates the finishing look.

 From my blog you can expect reviews of what makeup products I'm using. Im not always kind but I am always honest. Just because it has a designer name and a high price tag does not mean high quality. 

The makeup I do reviews for is always affordable high street makeup, I wont always be recommending products that cost £30 a piece.

I would like to point out its not always actual makeup, I do recommendations for makeup brushes and tell you what ways they are best used to get the look you are going for.

On the whole I just hope all the gorgeous women who appreciate makeup as much as I do enjoy reading and interacting with me and others so we can all continue looking a beautiful as possible forever!

To start this off I will post a picture of one of the more popular makeup looks that I did. Please note that every makeup look I have ever done I have never practised before and tend to use my Ipod or Blackberry to take the pictures so the colour intensity isnt always the best it can bem but at least you know it hasnt been airbrushed!

For this particular look I took apart a necklace I bought from a sale at New Look for £2 and used it as a decoration for my hair instead. The following things were used:

  • Ruby and Millie eyeshadow stick with Gold and Brown (£10.50 at Boots)
  • Liquid Last MAC eyeliner
  • MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
  • Benefit Thrrrob Blusher
  • Rimmel Blusher (comes in a row of three different shades of pink)
  • A Pallet of different shades of green for the eyes, available at Superdrug
  • Eyelure 140 Eyelashes
  • Benefit High Beam
The pattern used at the side of my eye was just a free hand drawing I basically just made up as I went along. I did an initial drawing underneath which I wasnt happy with so did this one on top, it ended up working really well as it created a sort of shadow 3D  effect which made it really stand out and look more fairytale-esque.
