Well I did my first makeup tutorial for you yesterday and enjoyed it even though it has been a long time since I was in front of the camera! My gorgeous model, Eilika was extremely patient and I thank her. You will have to excuse my sometimes rogue editing but am still learning and promise to get better...it's all a learning curve and I am enjoying every aspect of it. I decided to start with an easy makeup for you all to do but one that is incredibly effective at making you look great. Like I said, you can do different colors if you want and use a soft pink on the lid with a plum in the crease, or a light grey on the lid and a charcoal in the crease and underneath... just use your imagination and follow the techniques I have shown you.... and don't worry if you can't remember what I used ( I know that I forgot to actually mention WHAT product I used on the eyes in the crease from Priceline!) I have written a list for you underneath.... I also have to apologise for having to download a Part 1 & Part 2 to the tutorial as Youtube wouldn't load the full version, it was too long. Would love your feedback too so after you have watched the video leave me a comment about what you liked (or didn't) or what you would like to see... enjoy. And Happy Halloween!

I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to! All items posted on this blog are chosen because I have personally tried them and like them. I hope you find something here that you will love and will work for you.
