Make Up Tips & Tricks, Tried & Tested By Professional’s.

Today I am going to let you all in on some of the tips and techniques used during my time assisting at a makeup masterclass, run by Lynne Mills. Lynne Mills is an established makeup artist based in Edinburgh. She has worked with celeb’s, such as, the great British bake off team (Mary Berry etc), And as well as owning her own professional makeup team who are regularly called out to weddings, and high profile events, she herself done the make up for MR and MRS Keatings (Ronan Keating and his partner) wedding day, which was featured in OK magazine. Talking of magazine’s her art has also been featured in Vogue and Cosmopolitan. 

She also invented false eye lashes with a twist.  When Lynn asked 100 brides to be what the most daunting part of doing their make up for their big day was, eyeliner came out on top.  Armed with this inside information she created a set of false lashes that came with an added extra, a little bit of black sticky material which fitted perfectly along the lash line for the most perfect flick.  She also has her own line of brushes – Girl Meets Brush, as pictured below.

The class is held in Edinburgh at the very prestigious establishment “The Dome” – such a beautiful venue.

Tips and Tricks used, recommended products used.

Foundation tips:
During the prepping of the skin, a flat top foundation brush was used to apply the primer, this improves coverage and is more hygienic, the product used was Illamasque primer.
The crosshatch technique was used during the actual application of foundation, the technique goes like this, apply a little foundation on the back of your hand, dip foundation brush into the foundation, starting with the forehead apply strokes in a diagonal fashion the in the opposite direction diagonally, so the strokes are crisscrossed, this gives a more airbrushed finish, and leaves no streaks.
After using the cross hatch technique take a flat top foundation brush for blending which should have, tight fibres and a flat top, blend the foundation using circular motions for an extra airbrushed look.
Apply concealer after foundation, Foundation (after primer) is the base, concealer is for the finishing touches, applying concealer first then foundation, will just wipe the concealer away while blending the foundation.

Undertones pointers:
Hold a white t-shirt or top against yourself, then do the same with an ivory coloured t-shirt or top. If you are suited to the white better then you have warm undertones, if you are more suited to the ivory then you have cool undertones. Knowing this will help when picking shades,
Always test foundation shades at the corner of the mouth.

Contour and Highlight:
Highlight is to bring forward
Contour is to take back
Contour shade is to be 2 shades darker than your normal shade.
Use foundation for contouring as opposed to powder
When contouring the cheeks you should create a triangular shape with the widest part being at the jaw line
For the appearance of fuller lips shade just under the bottom lip where a shadow would naturally be cast if you did have full lips
For the highlighting use 2 shades lighter than your normal shade
Also use foundation for this part, a highlighter can be used after the foundation application to give more of a, glow from within kind of look
The areas that are most commonly highlighted and that any face shape suits is: above cheek bones, in the centre of the face I,e down nose, and on the cupids bow to create fuller lips, this would be where light would naturally hit the lips if you had full lips
Only ever highlight the chin if the chin is delicate, remember, highlighting is doing just that, we do not want to highlight the fact that we have a strong manly jaw, we highlight what we love and contour what we do not. And if you love your manly jaw then so do I!!! Uniqueness=Beauty
After applying your contour and highlight, firstly blend with a beauty blender, apply a little water to the blender to ensure flawless blending, and press the beauty blender against the skin do not run back and forth as this will just rub off all of your hard work
secondly, take a flat top foundation brush, and buff, use a circular motion, with upward movements
Top Tip: when blending or buffing a part of the face that has what I like to call peach fuzz (Fine Hair) then used downward strokes, this helps smooth the hairs down wards making them less noticeable

Eyebrows:

For the natural brow;
I know there are many products out there to choose from when it comes to our face framers, powder was the recommended product to use to create a natural looking brow, the powder used was from Smashbox
Use an angled brush, it should be narrow with tight fibres
choose a colour closest to your natural colour, saying that, it really is personal preference, as I am blonde and when I use the lighter colours from most eyebrow palettes I find that my brows tend to look ginger. That is not the look I am going for so I always opt for the second shade in a palette which is normally a light brown as opposed to a beige.
Apply a little colour to the brush, remember and pat the brush off your wrist to shake off any excess powder
Gently brush through brows starting at the arch and paying close attention to the top of the brow, try and follow the natural line of the brow
After each application of powder, brush a spoolie through the hairs, brushing the hairs upwards
I personally like to apply a little of the beige shade just to the start of my brow, it makes the brow look less harsh but this step is optional

HD Eyebrows:
Start with your spoolie and brush the hair upwards
With HD eyebrows they are meant to be a wow factor so you can have some fun with this and go a slightly darker colour than the one used for the natural brow, you can also use the same colour, again this is personal preference (remember there are good ways of doing things but makeup does not have a rule book, its meant to be fun, personal, and unique = personality)
Use a pencil for this, in your chosen shade
Now, draw a line from the bottom corner of the beginning of the brow, to the highest point of your arch
After that, get your spoolie and brush the hairs downwards
Now, draw a line again but this time from the top of the brow from where to brow starts and draw a line along to the highest part of your arch, you should have two lines, they may resemble a triangle shape, the point ending at your arch
Now draw a light line along your natural brow hairs to create the end or your brow, Top Tip – always check your brows from the side too
Fill in your triangle shape with fine hair like strokes
Be very light handed at the start of the brow, getting heavier at the arch
The recommended product for this was Benefits goof proof pencil, which is a personal fave of mines too
This technique can also be used for plucking, after you have drawn your lines just pluck away any hairs that are outside the triangle shape for beautifully defined brows

Eyes:
Always use eye primer, eye primer is created to deal with the extra oil that our lids create. Product used during the lesson was an eye primer by urban decay
Use an eyeshadow applicator brush, which is a flat brush used for packing on colour
Use the brush to apply your eye primer
Then take a base coat Ivory or Beige
Stop the base colour 1CM before the brow
Now take your fluffy blending brush and grab a nice mid-tone colour, a light brown.
Go back and forth on the crease with your blending brush, gently build the colour
Do not go past the centre of the eye with the mid-tone shade
Take your flat eyeshadow brush, used for packing on colour and apply a darker shade just at the outer corner of the eye
Now take your blending brush and blend the colour
Top Tip: When applying colour to the eye, another technique that can be used is creating a C shape at the outer eye, Use a mid tone all over with a Darker C shape, then use a darker colour again and go back over C shape.
The entire technique can be re-done if you want your eye to be even darker

How to spot a good blending brush:

When squeezed together a good blending brush should create a dome shape, a good blending brush should have loose fibres that are not to tightly packed, the bristles should be short at the side and longer in the middle, this is what gives this brush its amazing blending capabilities, by squeezing the bristles together you can clearly see the dome shape that is created. The lesser the Dome shape, then the less it will blend the colour together.

Eyeliner:
The recommended product used here was Illamasque precision ink, although the main thing the tutor was trying to get across was that its best to use a gel liner as opposed to a liquid liner or a pencil liner
Lift the eye slightly
The tutor also used a tiny pointed eyeliner brush from her brush kit rather than using the applicator that came with the liner. The brush used was similar to a synthetic lip brush, very small and pointed for precise application
The secret!!! This was the most interesting and most amazing piece of information from the entire class. The aim is to get right in to the base of the lashes, now, where your lashes sit, the skin curls round, yes, the skin actually curls round in to your eyelashes, try this!! After you have applied your eyeshadow gently lift your eyelid and look right at the base of your lashes, you will actually be able to see where the skin folds round as it will be bear where you have not been able to get your eyeshadow, every time you apply your eyeliner from now on make sure you lift your lid and get in to this area, the difference is amazing, your line will be straighter, lashes will look thicker and prevents gaps in between blonde lashes.
If you encounter a bumpy line and you are in a hurry, just smoke the line out with some black eyeshadow
Also, you can use black eyeshadow to pro long your eyeliner, just use your tiny lip brush to pack eyeshadow along your eyeliner ensuring you keep it in line with the gel liner
Always start from the outside and work inwards
If you are not to good at drawing a straight line, then use dots, if I asked you to draw a long straight line, then this may be difficult, if I were to ask you to join the dots to create a long line then drawing a shorter small line would be easier right?? Use this theory when applying your liner and draw a line of dots along the lash line then join them up

Tight-lining:
Look down, then take your thumb and push your lashes up, this will expose the upper water line
apply gel waterproof eyeliner to this area, this defines the eye for a more clean cut look

Waterline:
Pull bottom lid away from the eye
apply gel waterproof eyeliner to this area, or use a bright coloured gel liner for a flash of cool colour, very on trend

Mascara:
Start with applying mascara to the bottom lashes instead of the top, this prevents smudges
Wriggle brush at the base of the lashes, concentrate on the base more than the tip of the lashes
Zig Zag the brush as you bring the brush to the tip of the lashes
Coat both sides of the lashes
Top Tip: If a smudge does happen do not try and wipe it off when its wet or this will just smear it across your beautiful face and destroy all of your labour, wait until it is dry and flick it off using a q-tip, or your finger

Blusher:
Blusher should go in between your highlight and your contour
Apply on top of bronzer for a beautiful pop of colour
When going from office to evening apply a brighter shade of blush on top of your normal shade to really wake your skin up
When selecting a shade, pinch your cheeks and try to select a colour that is most similar to that
Or you can play it safe and sensible, go for a pale pink, (which looks extra amazing on fair skinned blondes) this colour suits anyone
Top Tip: The darker the colour of the skin, the more of an orange tone of blush can be used, olive skin with a pop of bright coral on the cheeks looks stunning.

Pictured below is Lynn Mills herself, modelling her false lashes.

There are many, many more tips I have for you guys, all about eye shapes, how to correct them, colour correcting, gosh I have learnt a lot and that was only attending one class, don’t get it twisted, I in no way shape or form have attended one masterclass and now think I am some kind of professional, I am currently at college studying beauty therapy and plan on taking the make up course after I graduate, but I am no where near being a professional (I wish and dream) I am just letting you guys in on the tips I thought would benefit any other girl the way it has me. I can also write all of this knowing that every word of it is 100% the correct way to apply the technique, I have watched loads of YouTube videos, and to be brutally honest I think some of them should come with a health warning, just because you see it being done on YouTube does not mean that person is a professional and that it is being applied in the correct way. Remember when we all thought it would be a great idea to suck on a shot glass to get the Kylie Jenner look? Yeah, what a bunch of idiots we are. Its easy to get swept away in a fad. Just remember to be cautious when watching videos on YouTube, it is a brilliant platform for people with real talent, to showcase their talent and become recognised. I aint a YouTube hater. I do have my own channel you know!!
Anyway, see you all on my next revealing blog post.

Hair Care Tips – That You Can Do Right Now, That WILL Save Your Hair, But, WILL NOT Break The Bank

Okay, so we know that expensive treatments, shampoo, conditioner’s and masks can all make our hair much healthier, as well as a visit to the salon, but, what about if your on a budget, or just need some tips to get you through to your next salon visit, or even maybe you do not go to a salon at all and need some help getting your hair healthy.  Well, what ever your situation here are some tips you can do right now with your everyday shampoo and conditioner that will give you results the first time you do them, if you keep doing them your hair will thank for it as it will create less split ends which are hairs worst nightmare.  So whether you have a big budget or no budget it doesn’t matter, you do not need the disposable income of Kim K West to have healthy hair you know!!

Tip 1. Change the order that you wash and condition your hair.
Do you have any idea why you have hair that lacks shine, or have hair that’s mega frizzy and unmanageable?? No? Well let me fill you in.  Every single hair on your head has cuticles, and when your hair cuticles become rough, it creates frizz, also when cuticles become rough, split ends will soon be visible.  What we have to do to keep our hair frizz free and super smooth and healthy looking is to smooth the cuticles of the hair down the hair shaft.  The next time you wash your hair you should condition it first.  Wet your hair then condition it, as you apply the conditioner smooth it down your hair over and over this will smooth the cuticles of your hair.  Shampoo your hair as normal, and then condition it again also.  You will totally thank me for this if you keep washing your hair this way.

Tip 2: Do not undo all of the hard work above by towel drying your hair!!
Now imagine all of those cuticles, all lovely and smooth after you have followed the tips above, then you take a towel and rub it all over you head creating rough cuticles and lots of breakage.  Which in turn creates frizz.  So after you have finished washing your hair, take a towel and squeeze the excess water out of your hair.  Grab your hairdryer, and apply the little nozzle that comes with almost all hairdryer but you probably have not used.  Hold the hair dryer at the top of you head and pint it down the hair.  Its easier if you section off the hair to do this, and i do not mean you have to sit for ages putting your hair into perfect little sections, just tying up the top half your hair and doing the bottom then top will do.  You should notice that your hair feels alot softer an smoother, but the longer you keep this up the better your hair will be.

Tip 3.  Use your normal everyday conditioner as an overnight treatment
Instead of buying expensive overnight treatments, just use what you have.  Take your normal everyday conditioner and apply to dry hair…….Yes dry hair.  Start at the tips and work your way to the top, do not worry about the hair at the top of your head so much as to much conditioner, if it proves difficult to wash out, can make hair look greasy, so leave about an inch of your hair at he top.  Smooth down the hair shaft over and over, you Will actually be able to feel your hair becoming smoother as you do this.  Take a wide toothed comb and brush through.  Tie it up and get some beauty sleep.  In the morning, give hair a really good rinse, then wash and condition (although just a small amount) and dry following the rules in the first 2 tips.  You will see that your hair will look and feel so much softer, smoother, with less frizz and more shine.

I could go into more tips like always use a heat defence product when using straighteners or curling tongs but that would include spending money if you have not already got these types of products at home.  There are many hair treatments you can create at home using items you might possibly have in your cupboards.  That is a post that is yet to come but is on its way.  Until then follow the tips above and your hair will really benefit from it.

Finds From The Sale!!

Cara Red & White Striped Trouser’s – £11

 

I love these trouser’s. I have them myself but they were not on sale when I bought them, so they cost me £22.  They are a stretch fit type of trouser and are very comfortable.  They are versatile also, wear to work or pair with heels and a nice lace top for a night out with the girls.  Click here to check them out.

Haiti Pink Floral Bodysuit – Was £28 NOW £14.99

 

How pretty is this.  I think it is stunning.  You could dress it up with just denim shorts and some pretty flat heeled sandals, or dress it up for cocktails with the girls by teaming it will tight skinny jeans and high stiletto heels.  Click here to grab it while you can.

White Crochet Shift Dress – £35.00 – £25

 

This is a stunning dress, it’s classy, and perfect for  a first date or even as a wedding guest.  For only £25 its a total steal.  Team with some nude wedges to make your legs look super long, Click here to take a look!

Thandie Pink Bodycon Dress £24.99 – £19.99

 

Really cute Bodycon dress.  I am a total sucker for the colour, I love it.  This colour totally makes a tan look amazing and the midi length is flattering on most body types. Check it out for yourself here!

Ria Blue Bartdot Floral Midi Dress £22.99 £9.99

 

This has to be my top pick from the sale.  Not only do I love this dress, it’s breathtaking, the floral print is very pretty and girly which I think any girl would love and the cut is very flattering on almost all body types, the midi cut is a great cut for ladies with bootilicious curves.  But, the way it looks is only one factor that has made this specific piece my top pick, the fact that it’s only £9.99 is a deal breaker!! Have a look for yourself while its still in stock!!

So, there you have it.  That’s all there is to know about my new favourite online store.  I like it because it has that same feel as the other online stores I find myself visiting more frequently than any other, the aesthetic and style of clothing reminds me of Bohoo, Pretty Little Thing and Nasty Gal, but, and I can’t believe I am saying this, it’s slightly cheaper!!!   Saaaaay Whaaaaaat Gurllllll!!!!!   Yep, I said it, the prices are very competitive.

Tops under £20 you can wear with absolutely anything and look stylish AF.

 

 

 

We are all becoming more and more busy.  Gone are the days where you can walk around a department store trying everything on.  There’s hustle and bustle everywhere, people banging into you, it’s not as therapeutic as it once was.  Looking for an outfit or even just putting an outfit together for the next day is becoming a much less enjoyable task due to our lives becoming much more busy, that’s just a fact of life, we as humans are the busiest we have ever been.  So, I have scoured the web for stores that sell amazing  items that you can wear anywhere and with anything.  Let’s take the guess-work out of putting together an outfit “will this go with that” and “does denim on denim really look cool?” and just because all the fashion magazine’s say it’s an in look, does not mean it’s going to look amazing on you, after all, the models we see in magazines have all just walked out of the hair and makeup chair straight in front of the camera, where as we have probably done the school run, cleaned the house and done a food shop all before 10am

Faster Living = Easier Fashion Picks

Our lifestyles have changed and so are our wardrobes.  Wearing 6 inch heels to work when you have a 12 hour shift ahead of you is not something we do anymore.  Yes, maybe the girls of “The Real Housewives Of (Wherever)” can but I feel they may do slightly less than the average person in a 24 hour day. Now we look for comfortable, on trend items, that can put together with ease.

No NeNe us really real people do not go to work like that!!

 

No, I am being serious, we don’t!!

 

Seriously we don’t

We are not going to go through the entire wardrobe in one post so I will start with tops that can be worn with almost anything, then move on to the other items in another post so keep an eye out for them.

 

Top’s that can be worn with anything, anywhere!!

1 – Black brushed chain print long sleeved top – Select Fashion £11.99 and free shipping when you sign up to their weekly newsletter

This is a great top that will go with almost anything, team with skinny jeans and a jacket with sheepskin boots or even a body warmer would look cute with a pair of trainers.

 
2 – Dusty Blue flared long sleeved top – Select fashion – £4.00 *ON SALE* and free shipping if you sign up to their weekly newsletter!
I love this top, it’s plain enough so that it will be easily styled with jeans, leggings, or a knee-length skirt, but the pretty sleeves and colour keeps it very feminine and cute.  This is also available in different colours, all equally as pretty as the blue, and, it’s also on sale at the moment for only £4.00, but that’s not all, if you sign up to Select Fashion’s weekly newsletter you become eligible for free shipping!!

3. Julie roll neck knitted jumper dress – Be jealous – £17.99

I love jumper dresses, the are so versatile and look really stylish.  They are also extremely comfortable.  Team with leggings, tight, boots, or flats.

4. Neon Pink Rib Knit High Neck Top – Parsian Fashion -£12.00

This is a website, they have some really nice items, all at really affordable price’s.  This top is great, it’s again versatile, and bright.  It’s very on trend and would finish off any outfit.  Team with skinny jeans and trainers, team with a body warmer and fleece lined boots, or some flats and a denim jacket. I would highly recommend checking this company out.  Click on the blue link above.

5.Brushed checked shirt – Select Fashion £7.99

No wardrobe is complete without a shirt.  So, versatile, and always in fashion, the check shirt is an item that can stay in your fashion arsenal for a long, long time due to its timeless on trend style. Not only can it be styled with almost anything but you can style the actual shirt a few different ways, tuck it in, buttoned up, leave it open, button up some and leave the bottom undone, then grab the unbuttoned ones and tie them, there are loads of ways you can change your look.  This is a definite must have item for any lady!!

There you have it.  I know you may think that only five items is not very much to show you guys.  But, a rule of creating a timeless wardrobe is to have a small amount of quality, staple items, that are versatile.

I really should practise what I preach.  I am guilty of having drawers full of tops that I have not worn for years.  To keep on top of your clothes, you are meant to clear out your wardrobe every season.  This ensures that you throw away the pieces that you are never going to wear again. and replace them with items that fit the description above (ones that are high quality, on trend, and versatile).

Although the most important thing, that out weighs every single rule out there, is make sure you are happy and comfortable in what you wear.  It does not matter about trends or styles.  If it makes you feel good then its a winner in my (look) book.

Love, Live, Slay!!!
