How To – Winged Liner

winged liner blog cover

Heyyyy Guys!

So I little makeup tutorial for you today… I have a video on how I do my Winged Liner… This isn’t to say this is the right way to do it as I personally don’t think there is a right or wrong way, everyone does it differently and I have seen some crazy ways in the past! But its just about finding the easiest way for you!

The way I have shown you is how I do it most of the time, however, if I know I am doing a dramatic wing and eyeshadow look I sometimes use the tape method.  I have shown you this before in previous videos but basically this method consists of apply any kind of tape, I use cello tape, on the edge of your eye in your wing shape, doing this means you can apply your eyeshadow and liner straight over the tape without worrying about the shape and then simply remove it at the end to reveal a perfect sharp wing! I have done this a few times in my videos but if you would like a tutorial on this method then let me know!

Back to how I do it most often!

I unfortunately don’t have any super new tips for you, the only big life changer I found was to use gel liner (my fav is Inglot) and then also go over it with a liquid liner to really perfect and get that liner on fleek! so sharp it will cut you.. hehe

Choosing the right brush is also super super important! I find it easiest with a small detailer brush, I think this is because I do a lot of Art so it feels like a paint brush to me! So with my Sigma E05 liner brush I am ready to draw on my war paint!

Some people prefer a small angled brush, I personally don’t but again this is personal preference.

Here are some pics of the look but watch below my full tutorial on how I do it as I think it is much easier to watch me do it then me tell you how I do it!!

Hope it gives you some tips!

How I Edit my Instagram photos and how to take the perfect selfie!

insta edit blog cover

Hey Guys!

So a couple of days ago I put up a video for you on how I edit my Instagram photos, what apps I use, what camera etc…

I have had so many messages and questions asking for more info and just general further questions about it so I thought I would break it all down for you in a little post!

SO

First of all I take probably 95% of the images on my Instagram feed with my iphone6! the camera on this phone is so good!

The rest (5%) I take with my Canon 60D, these are mainly the fashion images, which are on location.

The absolute main tip I can give anyone with taking selfies or any kinda of photo and my number one priority, anyone who knows me personally knows this already as I scream GREAT LIGHTING when I find it! LOL

yes thats it LIGHTING!!!!

This literally makes SO much difference to your photos! I know this isn’t anything new or a ground breaking find by me! But some people don’t realise what lighting can do!

Natural light is the BEST if you have a bright window in your room then stand in front of it so you’re facing the window, and snap away, this lighting is so perfect! Example in front of a window below, the left with no change just the original raw image and the right is brightening the photo through the Enlight app on my iPhone, using Vivid and Sharpen.

(both images untouched apart from lighting)

window selfie before and after_edited-1

Another great, yet slightly embarrasing, place to take selfies, is Car Selfies! You are surrounded by windows so unless your parked in some dark back alley, you’re going to get some good lighting! I often take mine when Pete is driving so then you can see when you hit the good light zone!

Example below (untouched)

car selfie

A lot of my makeup photos are taken with my professional ring light, hence why you will notice in a lot of them you can actually see a ring in my eyes! this means I am filming or shooting makeup pics, this light is amazing at picking up all the details in your makeup and creates a clean crisp image with no harsh shadows, I love it! but they are not cheap so unless you’re a blogger/youtuber I wouldn’t invest for your everyday selfies, unless of course you are a selfie queen and constantly striving for that perfect instaselfie!

Example below, Left is raw image with ring light no edit, right is how I would edit for post.

(taken on iphone6)

ring light selfie _edited-1

As you can see I edit mainly the centre of my face just to smooth it out and perfect it for a post! I show you how to do this in the video! but as you can see this light is amazing! and you could easily post the original I am just a perfectionist!

Another massive thing to think about when trying to achieve the perfect selfie is angles, KNOW YOUR ANGLES! Everyone has that perfect angle for your own face that just works! You want to highlight and draw the attention of your selfie viewer to your favourite part of your face and distract away from the parts that maybe you’re not so keen on.  For example, if you have a slight double chin don’t take a photo lower then eye contact! This will emphasise it.

The last part that people always ask me how to do is when you have the same image, but doubled and mirrored, I do this A LOT, usually because I want to get all my hair in but don’t want a white background or blurred background, it also works really well for full length fashion shots. So I do this using PicFrame, and I show you how to do it in the video!

Examples

lulus jumpsuit double full len

kylie iphone double

If you do want it more like this image below with the blurred background,  I do this using Enlight, I also show you that in the video!

There is more info in the video on how I use the apps, I show you from start to finish what I do from selfie to Instagram post using the above image!

Purple Lip trend!

PURPLE LIP BLOG COVER

Heyyyy Guys!

Its almost the weekend! Its Friday EVE!! woop!

SO basically I am kinda obsessed with purple lipstick so I have made a video for you showing you my current fav purple lipsticks! makes sense right!

I know its a little crazy how can one girl have sooo many purple lipsticks, nudes I could understand but purple…??

I just really love purple lips, I think because I’m not really a red lippie kinda girl and I’m not a girly girl particularly, so I don’t really love pinks either so purple is my chosen obsession.

Here is a pic of all the lip options and then the full video below that will show you how I did my make up plus the try ons and my thoughts on all the options! Some of them show up more pink in the pics but are definitely purple!

I have a discount code for some of them so will leave them below!

I LOVE watching these videos personally as I am so into interior design which frustrates me as where I live now there is not enough space to have everything how I want it, so I kept putting off doing this video but then I thought well I can do one now and then do another one when its perfect!

So I hope you like it!

My fav makeup brushes!

brushes blog cover

Hey Guys!

#happymonday

SO a lot of people ask me what my fav makeup brushes are and the ones I use most often etc, so I thought I would try to give you a helpful post on what these are and essential brushes for me!

Brushes make ALL the difference in makeup application and finish, like I can’t even tell you how important the right brush is!

SO

Starting with face brushes…

Foundation application

I have a few of these and I change a lot depending on what sort of look I am doing.

My top favs are

Light/natural coverage – Sigma Stippling brush

Medium/Full Coverage – Real Techniques Buffing brush

Flawless/Airbrushed – Real Techniques Miracle complexion sponge

FOUNDATION BRUSHES

Concealer

What I tend to do with concealer, if you have watched any of my makeup tutorials you will know already, but I basically apply my concealer and use my fingers to TAP it in, not rub but TAP!

Once I have tapped the majority in, I do go in with a brush!

This would be either

E.L.F small stippling brush

Sigma Tapered Kabuki – F86 (LOVE)

concealer brush

Cream contour

I Love a cream contour and the perfect brush for this is essential!

my fav right now is the

Sigma 3D Kabuki

3d kabuki 3 angels

I tried to get a few angles so you could see what I am talking about!

This can also be used for foundation but for contour for me it’s amazing! It has buffering action but because of the sharp angled edges it gives you a flawless contour so effortlessly!

Contour

Probably the most wanted brushes and I am always on the quest for the perfect contour brush!

If you’re looking for a sharp defined contour I would use my

Mac contour brush – 163

Everyday I use my

E.L.F – Blush brush

contour brushs

Blush

Sigma large angled contour – F40

E.L.F – Small tapered brush

blush brushes_edited-1

Highlighter

Sephora – Fan Brush

E.L.F – Small tapered brush

hightight brushes

Eyes

I could go into so much detail with this but this post would be ridic long! so I will just tell you my absolute essentials!

MAC – 217

Sigma

Tapered Blending – E40

Eye Shading – E5

Large Shader – E60

Diffused crease – E38

Concealer – F70 – I use this for brow highlight

Real techniques – Base shadow brush

(Pictured below in list order bottom to top – just to be awkward!)

eye brushes_edited-1

OK that is A LOT of eye brushes! but seriously if you want to get amazing flawless looking blended eyeshadow then the right brush is super important! they do great sets on Sigma like this one HERE and they are not cheap but so worth the investment, they last forever and wash up great! If I had to choose one brush brand it would be Sigma, hence why I have chosen to work with them! I only want to work with brands I genuinely LOVE and used before I worked with them, you know!? You can shop all Sigma Brushes HERE

ANYWAY

I think that is all the ones I am going to talk about today but I feel I covered A LOT, hopefully this was helpful!

Let me know if you would like more info or have any questions, and also let me know if you would like to see a video on how I clean my brushes…..? I get asked this a lot so let me know if that’s something you would like to see!

Thanks so much for viewing and thank you if you made it all the way down to here!
