Today I had the absolute pleasure of modelling for an artist I totally admire!
I've just been humming and hawing for a few minutes about whether it's worth a blogpost or if anyone would be interested in my little fan-girl moment. Then I realised that I keep telling myself I want to write stand alone blogposts (that aren't just to go along with my YouTube videos), and I feel like this is a perfect opportunity to chat about something makeup related whilst sharing something that just made me happy!
So...let's chat..☕️..

I had this idea of drawing a realistic "tattoo" on myself using eyeliner for a little while now but was honestly intimidated by it. I never tried it and I never looked into anyone else doing it (although I'm sure many have). I went through Instagram looking for some sort of small tattoo to copy that would be easy. For some reason though, I settled on a detailed feather! I think because it's not very structured so I knew I could be fairly freehand with it. I used one image (below) as my initial inspiration to follow shapes, but then free-styled around that. I have to say I'm pretty darn happy with how it turned out! So much so that I wanted to see how it would last too. If you're interested to find out how I did it and how it lasted, read on below...

I sat down to create something bold and colourful. I started with the usual warm shades that I reach for. I then decided to throw some green into the mix, and I love the result! The double winged liner definitely kicks it up a notch too! Below is the talk through tutorial, full product and brush list, and more pictures...Enjoy!

I wanted to create a fun glittery festival makeup that was more dark and smokey rather than bright and colourful. So I think I achieved that with this look keeping it to a black and gold theme! I had fun creating this and painting glitter all down my cheeks! I hope you like it too! 😊...

I wanted to create a slightly grunge/gothy look and I think I achieved that in this look. Below is a tutorial for the eye makeup, as well as a full product and brush list, including all products used in the full face look. I think the cool toned lip adds to the effect of the grunge look. Hope you enjoy!

Today's tutorial is a viewer request, and it is inspired by Priyanka Chopra's makeup from this year's Oscars. She had a lovely glam-wearable look of softly defined eyes with a soft pink lip and cheek. Below I have the inspiration pictures, the tutorial, full product and brush lists, and pictures of the finished look! I hope you enjoy!...

I sat down and created this look as I went along and I loved the outcome! The warmer bronzey shades give a summery feel but the dark under eye makes it more smokey and sultry. Below I have the video tutorial, a full product and brush list with links, and pictures of the look! Hope you enjoy!...
