Pride of Britain Awards was on the 30th of October this year and I got the honour of doing Ellie Simmonds makeup for the grand event! Pride of Britain Awards is about celebrating people who have done incredible and courageous things in their life. Lots of top celebrities go to this ceremony every year to congratulate people who have who an award. They all loved to get glammed up for the special occasion and strut their stuff on the red carpet before going to watch the award ceremony.
For Ellie's look she wanted to go for a more smokey evening look with cranberry and burgundy colours to make her green eyes pop. I decided to use the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette and Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette to create the perfect smokey eye.

I have recently made a video on how to do winged eyeliner! I try and explain it as much as I can but winged liner is a style that you have to constantly practise and find out which technique works for you best. Everyone has different eye shapes so winged liner will work better on some than others.
One thing I would say about liner is that it's so hard to get it perfect! Honestly you could spend hours trying to get both sides even, so don't beat yourself up about it. Even the professionals can't get it perfect on both sides! This is mainly because your eyes are not the same on both sides. One of my eye is more hooded than the other so I find it harder to do liner on the more hooded side. I find that although you may notice it is a tiny bit uneven others won't. You see things on yourself that others wouldn't even notice, so be kind to yourself!
The best products I suggest to use for a winged eyeliner is:
- Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ( it has amazing pay off, and has a really fine nib so you can do a very thin liner)
- Inglot AMC liner (most amazing gel liner you can find on the market! It is so dark black & matte which you really want in an eyeliner and it is also waterproof. It lasts so long on the eyes and applies beautifully aswell! It even goes over glitter great, which I find very rare in a gel liner)
- Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (I love this one because it is waterproof and lasts very long on the eyes. Its nib is a bit thicker than the Kat Von D one so if you like a thicker liner/wing this one would be perfect! It is so easy to use aswell)
- Zoeva Angled Brush (Perfect brush to go with your gel liner to create the most beautiful wing)
Go check out my video for tips and see how I do a winged liner:
So this week I decided to create a soft natural makeup look as most of the looks I've created so far are quite heavy and more glam. This look would be perfect if you're a bride or bridesmaid!

I love animals and hate that some countries still test on them so I thought I would do a cruelty free makeup tutorial to show you all how easy it is to do a full face using only cruelty free products.
One of my goals in 2017 is to use more cruelty free brands and step away from brands that test of animals. Some of my favourite brands are cruelty free include Nars, Urban Decay, Kat Von D, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced, and Becca. If you are unsure about if a brand is cruelty free then you can check out this website ... http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/list-of-cruelty-free-brands/.

I have recently set up a Facebook Page! I don't know why I didn't do this sooner but now you can see all my makeup pictures and videos much easier and quicker.
Please go give my Facebook Page a like and if I have done your makeup a review would be very helpful!
I have just uploaded a new makeup video to YouTube! I did a half cut crease with a pinkish nude lip using the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lip in "Bombshell'. I recently bought this liquid lipstick and had to try it out straight away! I did use quite a lot of different eye shadow colours which wasn't really necessary if you want to recreate the look, I was just being very extra.
This time I skipped showing the majority of the face makeup just because whilst I was filming I didn't have too much storage left and I mainly wanted to show how I did the eyes.
-Products I used-
Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow - Birkin
Morphe Eyeshadow - Fiesta

Colourpop - Paisley & Weenie

Very excited to announce that I have recently made a YouTube Channel! I am starting with 'Client Tutorials' to show you all how to achieve flawless looks.
I wanted to do makeup on others rather than myself so you can see a range of faces and understand what look may suit you most. I will be doing makeup on clients with a range of skin tones, different face & eye shapes to really help you figure out how to adapt the skills I am showing you to create amazing looks on yourself! I want to do a range of natural looks to more heavy and dramatic so there is something for everybody. I may start to do some on myself but I mainly want to focus it on me showing you how I do makeup on others.
Hopefully by watching it you will pick up some tips and techniques! You will also get a better look of what products I use in my kit and how I use all my different brushes.
