Now I love matt lipsticks and I do go go on about them quite a bit and if I had my way I would wear a matt red lipstick every day but sadly my husband wouldn't be as happy. Gosh cosmetics are always bringing out new collections and shades and this A/W season its the Gosh velvet touch matt lipstick shades with a new favourite red of mine that I will be most likely keeping in my personal stash.
I am always on the look out for good foundations that I can recommend to others but are also affordable. We all love expensive products and who wouldn't want a Chanel foundation, but when it comes to every day wear we all need a good realiable foundation that won't break the bank and makes your skin look amazing. There are plenty of budget bases to choose from but I am really quite partial to the Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect foundation it doesn't break the bank and looks pretty good on.
Lipstick is always going to be on trend whether its a nude, a pop of colour or a gorgeous berry. For me the best way to brighten up your complexion is to wack on a lipstick it totally changes everything. If I am tired then I go for a bright lip, if I am working a smokey eye a nude lip or sometimes a dark lip just looks amazing.
Summer Makeup Tutorial TrendThis look is a perfect summer makeup look that is right on trend and perfect for Summer's skin tone. I wanted to show how to use a pop of colour in a makeup look that is so easy to create and looks beautiful. Its all about fresh flawless, skin, nude lips and a pink smokey eye. Its a trend makeup look inspired from catwalk looks especially the Matthew Williamson show SS15. Hope you enjoy the summer makeup tutorial:
For those of you who love wearing a matt lippie but hate that your lips feel seriously dry and that they are about to crack then the Smashbox Insta-Matt may be the answer to your prayers. Normally when I use a matt lipstick on myself or a model then I apply a lip balm but this sometimes takes away the matt texture which is definitely not a good thing so having this product really will make it way more comfortable on the lips. At the Smashbox launch at the end of last year we got to test out this new product on the Smashbox lipsticks to see for yourselves.
Anything Chanel launching I am always excited and when the delivery man comes with a box from Chanel my day has literally been made especially since the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation is finally here. If you don't know anything about the Les Beiges line its all about healthy glowing skin which started out with powders and then some gorgeous bronzers and now the foundation is being added to the family. For those of you based in SA its heading your way on the 19th Feb so you better put that date in the diary if you want to go test this one out. There are 12 shades in the collection so hopefully there is one for you, it comes in a 30ml pump bottle and retails at R785.
With my wedding renewal being around the corner the way this year is going I have my trial next week for hair and makeup and I have been busy looking for bridal makeup references on what I would like for the day. I am pretty much treating it like I am doing the big day all over again. Last night I complied a few references for the makeup artist so she has an idea and I am still deciding what I want. If I had my way it would be a bright lip but hubby is never a fan of lipstick. So here is my bridal makeup inspiration for those of you who are getting married and need some ideas:
I am so excited to be planning for my new home this year its definitely an exciting one for me apart from renewing my vows. I have started the furniture search some items are more of a wish because they are expensive, some are definitely worth the investment and some are a hell yes and very affordable.
There were a few looks from the Golden Globes red carpet I loved, I decided to do a Kate Bosworth inspired red carpet makeup tutorial look as its totally wearable for every day and just very pretty. I didn't do the exact look as didn't want to copy but just took elements so I hope you enjoy the video. I decided to use a model because they look better than I do and its always easier to show when you are working on a model.
I am off today filming some video's and here is my makeup tutorial inspiration for some looks I am going to be doing on two gorgeous models Morgan and Summer from Boss. I have been busy researching summer trends, celebrity red carpet trends and some pretty looks from pinterest. So here is a little sneak peak of what will be coming your way each week.
