Happy 40th Kate Moss!

I don’t know about you guys but this lovely lady definitely deserves a mahousive HAPPYYYY BIRRTHDAYYY from all of us. Kate Moss turned 40 last week (16th January) and isn’t she gorgeous? This women is not only extremely stunning but also an inspiration, through everything Kate has managed to keep her career moving for an amazing span of years. Therefore I now name her a ‘superdupermodel’. Kate decided to celebrate her birthday with a four day bender including a festival in her garden (as you do). Florence and the Machine, Mark Ronson, amongst others all took the stage to perform for her and her guests. Even Noel Gallagher serenaded her, now that’s something I would love to see.

I just felt this needed to be done and also me and my friends have all been joking about turning 30 recently as everyone is getting another year closer. Don’t get me wrong I am only 22 but still… So life doesn’t stop at 30, apparently it just keeps getting better (phewww)

Happy birthday Kate Moss

It’ssss….. Christmasssss!!

The words of Slade… Itsss Christmasss!! And I have invited my lovely friendys over for our own Christmas dinner! Now… They found this hilarious as I am possibly the worst cook! (I have burnt things in the microwave :-/ ha) but you can’t kill me for trying… So, Christmas dinners are normally about roast turkey, roast potatoes, veg, the horrid Brussels! But oh no… My Christmas dinner is… Drum rolls please… FAJITAS AND NACHOS!! Now who doesn’t like a good ol’ Mexican? Of course a chocolate gateau goes down perfectly after ๐Ÿ˜€ I pulled out all the stops and have decided to share with you our evening…

Fairy lights and candles to set the mood ;-P

We then went on to carry on the night with a few drinks and bubbles, then we all got a little competitive playing Articulate (some more then others :-/) so photos was the last thing on our minds. Overall a lovely night with great company that ended up like something out of Ab Fab in fur coats, glass of Prosecco in one hand, a wonky Christmas cracker hat and a little plastic hair clip and fake lips ha!

I hope everyone is having a very festive Christmas time like I am with my lovelies

Absolutely fabulous darling

MAC AW13 masterclass (& shopping oops)

So AW13 is upon us and I went on a jolly journey to London Chelsea to visit the mac store on kings street (Unfortunately not seeing any of the made in Chelsea cast). The only reason I was able to do this was through an opportunity with DFMA. We was shown the look below from London fashion week, then used the rest of the time to network and go SHOPPING!!

So… I went shopping (naughty) but… I personally don’t call it shopping, it’s purchasing essentials that will further your career and got a hefty discount (Ehh). Mainly in my head at the time was what do I need to add to my bridal makeup kit? My first thought was a good sheer foundation which is also buildable and of course MAC face & body is always a good option for a natural look. I got the lightest in N1 and a darker in N9, then I am prepared for porcelain to dark skin and can mix them together with my already existing foundation to get correct colours for different skin tones.

Tip- One of the lovely helpful ladies did suggest to pair up with another friend, then you can purchase a couple colours each and split them into empty bottles to get more colours as the 120ml bottles last for yonks.

image

As I chose a light foundation, I picked up a MAC Pro Longwear concealerย in NC25 as I already have a derma blend palette for darker skin tones. Pro Longwear is a lot higher coverage for any ‘troubled’ areas my clients may have.

image

MAC fix+ is spoken about a lot on YouTube that I have seen and always looked so, of course the minerals in it are good for your skin as well! but it’s so refreshing And there is nothing worse then when you have blow dried hair and the feel for the client when you put makeup on stuffy skin.

MAC blush in harmony I have been told by Lyndsey Harrison is perfect for contouring on a bride for a natural look as it’s completely matte and is an orange tangoed bronzer ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway it was actually used in the tutorial today so that was it, SOLD!ย (How annoying is it that the packaging is upside down in the photo above!)

ย MAC pigment in Vanilla is a gorgeous highlighter, I used when I was at DFMA, so that was a must ๐Ÿ˜›

image

I have so many different colour eyeshadows but in my MAC palettes I have neutrals, greens, purples, so thought I would go for more red/pink colours, then I can be a little more romantical for people. I had to go for a more neutral ‘all that glitters’, then the middle shade is called ‘paradisco’ย and then the darkest which will be a lovely crease colour is ‘coppering’.ย 

image

Lipsticks are the one thing I can’t get really carried away with, which is strange considering I tend to wear a neutral lip, does not stop me buying every colour in the rainbow! So I went with the classics, MAC matte lipstick in Russian red was used in the tutorial so of course twisted my arm, MAC matte lipstick in lady danger just jumped out at me it’s a brighter red but more orangey so will look lovely with ladies with blue eyes. Then there is the neutrals, I got MAC cremesheen lipstick in pure zen and MAC glaze lipstick in hue, these will look lovely on the natural brides I was thinking.
