Looking to brighten up your look this winter? The Essie winter collection is perfect to adding pops of colour and adding a little something to your look. I was lucky enough to get the whole collection to play around with and I love the bright colours rather than the usual dark berry shades.
I really got spoilt from the L’Oreal team last week with 3 collections from Essie, this week I am sharing with you the Essie fall collection from Essie its a mixture of neutrals, greens, browns and a pretty red shades all representing Autumn fashion trends.
I never used to be into nail polish until I became a makeup artist and red was pretty much the colour that I would go for on my toes much to my manicurist disappointment. Over the last couple of years I am definitely getting more adventourous and trying lots of new shades out and as I am a makeup artist I always need every colour under the sun. Now Morgan Taylor have a nice collection of shades and this week I am sharing the Enchanted Collection which I have been playing around with.
One of my favourite movies as a child Cinderella has been turned into a live movie which I am so excited to go see and take my 5 year old daughter Tatiana. Morgan Taylor have launched a nail polish collection inspired my the movie and I got a few shades to play around with.
I got to take part in this amazing Fresh Face shoot with Marie Claire SA magazine in December with the most amazing coats and amazing girls. The brief was the no makeup makeup look with dewy skin and enhanced features. I was lucky that I got to work with some amazing new faces and some oldies too like my best Sam Laskey.
Its Friday people and I am on another shoot so I thought I would share some nail art and colours to inspire you all for the weekend. I love going through pinterest as you all know for references for shoots and there is always something that stands out for me and this week its nails purely because I have been on a sports brand shoot all week and I couldn’t paint a single nail!!!!
Most of us write about all the amazing new products that are coming out or what I favourite lipstick colour is but we never really discuss the key beauty essentials we can’t live without. Being a pro makeup artist means I need everything but the kitchen sink and there are some not so sexy items that I couldn’t do my job without.
My latest beauty work came out in Elegant Magazine in December with the amazing model Olga shot by one of my best beauty photographers Kass. I played around with colours and Kass pushed me to smear a little lipstick and give the story some edge and I am pretty happy it got featured in the mag.
As I am currently away on a little relaxing family trip today’s weekend edit is some beauty Sunday reading of posts and video’s that I have loved so you don’t go away empty handed and you can catch up on some great beauty reads:
