i was really inspired by diane kruger’s soft yet glam look at on the vanity fair red carpet and wrote about how to get the look over on glitter guide this week.
a little note about eyeshadow palettes: always choose a palette that has a majority of colours that you love and will wear; that way, you’re definitely getting a great value. it seems like common sense, but a lot of us are drawn to a palette because of one particular shade, however it’s much more affordable to buy a favourite shade on it’s own rather than part of a palette. the bobbi brown one above is full of neutral, basic shades that we can all get a lot of wear out of.

am i the only one who has had a difficult time finding a great foundation? let me introduce you to my fave, along with a few others in my new video.
tips for picking out the perfect foundation colour:
- try it on: if you are purchasing a foundation at a store that has testers, try the three colours you think will work. spread each in a little line at your jaw to compare. if you cannot test out the colours, make sure you can return a foundation. it’s nearly impossible to pick out a proper match without trying it on.
- go outside: the only way to see which colour matches properly is to take a mirror outside into natural light and take a look. yes, it will look odd but it’s completely necessary!
- get a second opinion: ask a friend which one they think matches your skin.
if it’s difficult to pin down your skin tone, eyeballing a few foundation colours to try on will help narrow down if you are cool, neutral or warm and then you can go from there.
hold on to your lashes, girls!
starting out in makeup, i had the most difficult time with false lashes. when clients would request them, i would have a little internal freak out. they would slide everywhere, lift at each corner, and never end up sitting where i hoped and prayed they would. i have since conquered the fear (and technique!) and want to share this three step, five second process i’ve developed for a fool proof beautiful result each time.
grab a pair of falsies, tweezers, eyelash curler and mascara and give it a go with me.
my first beauty tutorial is up – hope you find this little trick useful! if there is something specific you’d like to see me cover, leave a comment either below, or on my youtube channel.
