Happy New Year :) . Time to get back into work mode after relaxing and sunning ourselves at the beach for the past couple of weeks. ( heaven !). I found this great how to for creating a dark smokey eye that is super simple and all you need to take you from work to the eve. All that is required is a good kohl pencil - faves being Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Via Veneto or Kevyn Aucoin eye pencil in Basic Black , a black eyeshadow and mascara. I am loving By Terry - Mascara Terrybly in Black Fiction with lash lengthening serum at the moment. It comes in other great colours too if you want to be adventurous. The trickiest part is getting the pencil inside the entire upper and lower rim of the eye for maximum effect. Simply glide the pencil along the lower rim and then lift the lid up gently to run the pencil along the inside upper rim near the lashes. Super sexy eyes in under 10 mins. x
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!
