I did a Virgin Australia commercial recently ( see the ad on my commercials page ) and as the signature color for the girls is red , I went on the hunt for the perfect red. I always find that most reds are too orange or too blue.. .am on the eternal search for a great red. By chance a friend had given me a new Chanel lipstick which I had put in my kit and forgotten about. On finding it as I was going through my kit , it turned out to be exactly what I was looking for ! The color is rich without too much yellow to give it that orange/red look and not too much blue to give it that burgundy colour ....I'm in love! Finally the perfect red. It is also not so creamy that it slides off the lips, it has just enough matt to give it a good stain . The color is Chanel 39 and I shall be stocking up in case they ever decide to discontinue it!
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!
