Spring Bride Makeup Tutorial and Inspiration

WOW! Let me first just say a big 'SORRYYY' for not writing for so long. I was in the US for 3 weeks and the last week of it I was doing a wedding in Texas. My laptop was in Apple Care and was completely wiped, so I really had very little access to the net, other than my phone!

So this tutorial is much overdue. I literally recorded it over a month ago and my dad kindly edited it for me! Its a little longer than I normally have it but that's OK because my daddy lovingly took the time to edit it for me and make it pretty!

SO here it is!


I wanted to also add that I made the headpiece in this video! I am in love with floral crowns and will be making them for my brides now. The prices start from £15 and go up, depending on the size you want!
If you are interested, please get in touch!

Below is the precise reason why you should have a makeup artist...look at me before! I would most definitely NOT want to walk down the aisle like that ;) teehee

Angelina Jolie Red Carpet Makeup 2014

I have been meaning to put this blog up for two weeks now. My mother arrived from the states and then my son accidentally jammed a sushi mat (yes a rolled up sushi mat) into my husband's eye that left him blind for two days and in and out of hospital for three. (Hubby is fine now and the sushi mat has been hidden).

So now I am finally catching up with all of the things I haven't been able to do!

This is a Angeline Jolie inspired makeup tutorial from the BAFTAS. (really late, I know, but who doesn't love a good Ange makeup tutorial anyway???).

HERE IS WHAT I USED:

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
e.l.f. Highlighter and Concealer
Urban Decay 24 Hour Eyeshadow Stick -Sin & Juju

Wedding Decorations with a Twist

Wedding season is fast approaching which means that my Pinterest  boards are buzzing with wedding inspiration. 

With 11 boards to choose, from wedding hair and makeup , bridal gowns & accessories  to wedding decorations  there is something for everyone. 

One of the things I love is the overall feel of the wedding. The aesthetic touches that make it personal. I, personally, don't feel a lot of money needs to be spent to create the perfect atmosphere! Little touches, here an there can make a big difference. 

I started thinking about it...and as people are trying to save pennies but create big impact, one of the easiest ways to do that is with wall stickers! It's a great way to make a statement, add a personal touch and also a personal note.

My Five Week CACI Non-Surgical Facelift Treatments

I know I have mentioned (almost two years ago), the CACI machine. I did a review on it after just one treatment...it's hard a bagillion views, but I only did the single treatment so I wasn't able to show everyone what this machine can really do!
So, for those who don't know what it is, the CACI is a machine that delivers the results of a facelift but without surgery. Through little micro currents, the machine stimulates the muscles, putting them back where they belong as well as helping plump the skin and bring the blood back to the surface. It also has this thing that sounds scary and really isn't, which is the wrinkle comb. This bad boy is what flips all the flat cells back into a round shape, plumping out the wrinkles that have formed. 

I am now on week 4. Below are my two videos I have uploaded on my progress and the photos as well of the first two weeks. (4 Treatments in total)

LVL Lashes - Full Review

I gave you guys a quick low-down on those LVL Lashes  everyone is going on about, last week....

One week later and how am I liking it?

Well.... Honestly?


I LOVE THEM! Ahh! Why have I not done this before?

I have always had completely blonde eyelashes, that are quite short as well. If I don't wear mascara I am instantly asked 'Are you tired?' . Blonde lashes create a shield which can make the eyes appear smaller and less vibrant.

My Trusty Little Sunflower Cream

For the last month I have been trying to take better care of my skin... I put a lot of emphasis on my face and occasionally my arms and legs (If they are on show...which...at the moment they would most likely cause permanent blindness if you look at them too long). What I don't pay attention to, mainly because I have a thing with icky feeling of cream on them...are my hands.

Ok, so my face is the first thing people see, my hands are one of the other things people notice. I hand things to a cashier, shake someone's hand, comfort someone with their hands in mine, stroke the soft face of my son...I do so much with my hands, so why are they the first thing I neglect?
I have to say the reason I neglect my hands is because I actually hate having greasy hands. It's a little bit of a phobia of mine.
 <------ URGH!

However, I have been forcing myself to take the time to treat my hands how they should be treated.

I have spent a full month testing this lovely product, My Trusty Little Sunflower Cream (in Lavender). WHICH, not only doesn't make my hands feel greasy, but soaks in magically and doesn't leave me cringing inside.




I have actually loved it so much, I have had it sitting next to my bed as my little staple routine before I shut off my twinkly fairy lights.

I deliberately chose the lavender scented cream because I LOVE lavender and if it's something I am going to use before bed.

This cream is right up my alley and is gorgeous. What's also lovely about this yummy handy cream is that is a staple part of the NHS and is widely used in hospitals. With no parabens, nasties, colours and icky perfumes that shouldn't be there.

It's a bargain price of £6.99

If you want a handy cream, that does the job, smells nice, non-greasy, doesn't test on animals, no icky chemicals, then this is the cream for you.

My Thoughts on LVL Lashes

I am a lash enhancement virgin...well...until now, that is!

I had the privilege of filming with my lovely, hard working friend, Jenna, who not only will be a qualified nurse in just a matter of weeks, but is also a fantastic beauty treatment specialist! 

I will get the video edited this week so you can get a little more information and I will post a full blog on the ins and outs of what LVL is and why it is so great!


Here is a little teaser of what we got up to today.

Valentines Date Night Look and Makeup!

I'm not a huge Valentine's Day kind of girl, mainly because I don't like the commercialism of the day. I don't think there should be a dedicated day to say 'I Love You'. However, it does fall on a Friday night this month and welllll Friday nights tend to be a good night to go on a HOT date! So I think, why not celebrate it for once! :D

So here is my look I pulled together for that perfect hot date and the makeup to go with it!
The entire clothing collection is by Grabble which is a brilliant platform where you simply grab a GRAB button, go to your favourite sites and start grabbing little clothing collections you like. Like below:
You can then buy the items you've collected, now that you can see them all in one place and know what they look like together.

Date Night Makeup- Behind the Scenes

Here is a funny little video I did of my lovely friend, Lucy, before she went to a big party in the one and only King's College Cambridge!

Lucy is quirky, silly, and has a real 1960's feel to her look, so I thought I would take her into the 60's and give her a updo, french twist with a good amount of height out the back. Lucy is gorgeous and doesn't need loads of makeup, so I gave her a classic vintage look with winged eyeliner, iridescent eyeshadow and glowing skin!

I hope you enjoy!

Casting Models Online- All in One Place!

Casting Models, it's not always the easiest thing to do! Going through specific agencies isn't always easy and some older platforms have a lot of people who may want to be models or are models but it's difficult to trowel through them all to find what you are looking for. I know I have been caught in the middle of helping choose models and it becomes a minefield of applicants that are either unsuitable or aren't actually models.

Model Management have developed a new state-of-the-art casting tool for professional photographers, designers, stylists, agencies and other professionals within the industry, to cast different types of models from all over the world. 

The new casting tool for Model Management has over 120,000 professional models on their database in more than 150 countries. 



Professionals looking for models can actively promote and showcase their castings directly to the models via email, social media with invitations to apply and direct messaging. This is great because it not only boosts the performance of a casting notice but guarantees a high numbers of quality applicants while at the same time promoting the individual professional, or company to their target. 

Direct from the big boss and CEO of Model Management , Andreas von Estorff explains it a little more for us: “The key to the success of our casting system is that we can offer the biggest variety of models from around the world for almost any budget and shoot, as long as it is serious and professional. We’ve spent a lot of time looking at the needs of the professionals and developed this free tool to cast and contact models quickly and effectively. This is the future of castings.”

Model Management is a breath of fresh air and a much needed casting system. It is now one of the most successful casting sites has uniquely managed to bring different sectors of the modelling world together onto one online platform. 

This is only the start of what Model Management has to offer, so I would keep checking back to see what they have up their sleeve next!
