1. Smudged mascara on your upper, lower eyelid? Let it dry first, take a dry q-tip, remove and watch it flake away. 2. Concealer colour choice made easy: Yellow counteracts redness. Peach counteracts blueness. 3. Don’t put eye cream or moisturiser on your eyelids when you're going to wear eye shadow or it will crease. Use a concealer or eyelid primer to hold your eye shadow in place all day. 4. When applying eye shadow blend, blend and blend again. 5. Use a white [...]

2014-09-10T14:54:08+00:00By |Categories: Face Facts|

Although we are trying our best to hold onto summer, autumn is fast approaching. I love this time of year because it's the perfect time to switch up your make up and have fun! As the weather turns cooler cast aside the paler shades of summer and turn up the heat with deliciously deep berry shades - the perfect colour choice to compliment all complexions and whiten teeth. The younger you are the deeper and more daring you can go with your chosen colour. Think luscious blackberry stained [...]

Have you ever noticed the fine hairs on your face become more noticeable when applying your foundation? Here are my simple tips to help minimise this unwanted "peach fuzz" look.

If you have eyes that are quite close together, the key is to use lighter shades on the inner area of your eye to give the illusion of more brighter wider eyes and darker shades on the outer corner to elongate the eyes. STEP ONE Apply your lighter shade across your entire eyelid blending slightly above your crease. STEP TWO Apply your medium shade in a v shape around the outer corner of your eye and into the crease but only halfway across, in-line [...]

Some of the world's most beautiful women have a hooded eye shape - it's not a 'problem' it's just a different shape like any other. These tips will help make your eyes appear more lifted and open.

Summer Foundation

Now we're heading into the warmer weather (hopefully) now is a good time to think about changing your foundation. Liquid foundations may give you great coverage, but personally I'm not a fan. Your skin can't breathe, and as you perspire it may block your pores and give you problematic skin - as well as causing streaks. Here are my two favourite alternatives: Mineral make up If you haven't already tried it you'll probably be surprised at just how good it looks and feels. Barbara Panagos is a quality brand that provides great coverage, [...]
