Glam with a touch of Drama; Chit Chat Makeup Tutorial.

I managed to get one last makeup tutorial in on time for Christmas and of course it had to be dramatic yet glamorous! This was one of those looks that looks a bit crazy and, well... crap until it all comes to together in the end and then turns out fairly decent. 
Who says you can't do eyes and lips??!

Glitter Eyeliner Tutorial; 2 Ways!

Another glitter look, this time on the eyes. I love and hate glitter in near equal measure but the love wins out thanks to just how friggin' gorgeous it looks!
(The hate stems from how hard it is to remove & clean up!)
I filmed a tutorial showing how to apply glitter as eyeliner 2 ways, the first tutorial comes with a bit of fallout and but is probably the easiest one to do due to the products needed, the second one is very tidy and perfect for anyone who wears contacts or has very sensitive eyes!

3D Gold Glitter Lips Tutorial!

I've been waiting for the Christmas Season to come around so I could finally try my hand at glitter lip art. This can be a tricky one to pull off, and by that I mean to have it look pretty and last for longer than just a few minutes!!

So here's how to apply glitter to your lips & make it last the night.

GRWM; My Work Christmas Party Makeup!

I had my work Christmas party last week where we went for a few drinks and dinner. (I bowed out before the nightclub, Nanna central here, lol ).
I decided to go for a very typical Christmas makeup look with the true red lips and warm brown smokey eyes. Hey, if it works!...
I was so surprised that my lips stayed on the whole evening despite the dinner and I only touched them up once, and even then I could have skipped the touch-up!

Christmas Inspired High-Shine Makeup Tutorial. ft. Sleek Makeup

Helloooo Lovelies ^_^
I have been really enjoying knocking out the makeup tutorials lately, particularly the more festive ones on the run up to Christmas. When I was sent a few Sleek Makeup products a couple of weeks ago, the new 'Precious Metals' Highlighting palette in particular totally inspired me to create a super high-shine look, like the warm glow from candlelight or the reflected light from tinsel or Christmas tree baubles!

Max Factor 'Skin Luminizer Foundation' Review & Demo

A foundation I was sent a few months ago but that I've been using and loving, more & more lately is the Max Factor 'Skin Luminizer' Foundation. This is a 'radiance giving' foundation which contains pearlised pigments swirled throughout a matte base.
There are only 6 shades available sadly, which you can see swatched alongside MAC shades down below, but if you happen to match any of the shades that are available, I would highly recommend trying this one out!
Watch the video below for a full run-down of the foundation plus an application demo.
