This week has been filled with shoots, makeup favourites and some newness from one of my favourite brands. As always I pack all the highlights of my week into one post so here it is:

1) I love the Mac trend techniques workshops they are my favourite for the year because firstly we get to catch up with Michelle-Lee the senior pro artist who is my favourite and we get to see what amazing products are being used and how. And oh yes I get the Mac bible book with all the looks created by the Mac teams and rockstar makeup artists like Pat Macgrath, Val Garland and Luciana Peroni. If you didn’t catch my post there is a giveaway and the key trends for SS15.

2) I have been on a shoot for a German client this week with the theme being 007 it was serioulsy one of the coolest shoots I have done because of all the gadgets and props and the explosion on the bridge!!! I will def be sharing the pics when they come out. Jenna Pieterson model and blogger (Follow the Swallow) was my girl model for the 3 days and the look was undone eyes and some texture to the hair. Seriously the easiest makeup look with a dewy skin, contouring, Bobbi Brown Sable eyeshadow all the way up to the brow bone and along the bottom lash line finished with Smashbox Always sharp chocolate liner smudged along the lash line. For the hair I literally spritzed each section and took my tong and just worked the middle section of the hair.

3) The product of the week for me and which gave Jenna a seriously glowing body was my  Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel body highlighter. Its got a roller application so you roll along arms, legs and collar bone and voila a beautiful shimmering body.

4) Smashbox are just rolling out some amazing products this month with the matte lipsticks being the latest to hit the SA market. I got 4 gorgeous shades to play with and will be featuing all the goodies in a makeup tutorial next week. So watch this space if you want to see these bad boys in action.

Hope you had an aamzing week.
