I did this tutorial just for fun. I love colour and most of the time we're too scared to use it because we might stand out, or we just don't know how to wear it. At work most of the looks I do are pretty but conservative and every now and then I like to break out and use bold colors. I particularly like red and gold together, it goes with most skin types and eye colours. It works really beautifully with dark skin . I made this tutorial simple so that you could see that makeup doesn't have to be complicated even though it might look it. Just don't forget to blend....for me harsh lines make or break a look.... unless that's the look you're going for of course.. :-)

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.
