Product rave video!

Hey guys!
I featured the Mac liquid last eyeliners on my hot or not post not so long ago but I have seriously been loving them so much! They are so simple to use and stay put! To remove them use Macs gently off eye and lip make up remover and it will come off like a dream.

Have a go as I assure you they will be one of your new loves!
Big hugs

Thank-you Lauren!

It's not every day that the queen of You tube tutorials put's one of your vids on her website! Woo hoo!

In preparation for my wedding in July '08 I searched the internet for wedding make up inspiration. I found LL's videos and I was hooked! I love her sense of normality and fun which makes watching her a joy. I felt another affiliation with her as I too have a snoring pug dog! When she bought out her make up range then I bought them as soon as I could. I just love the greens and made a video about them when I started my channel which I would never have done without her.

Thanks so much Lauren, you have really inspired me to make the best of myself.
Big hugs.

Leona Lewis Make up tutorial

Hey peeps!
I have posted a new video today and it is based on the look that Leona Lewis wore when she performed her new single 'Happy' on the X factor last saturday. It's a really clean crisp look with the emphasis on the eyelid and I used the 'sello tape' trick to get a sharpe line without much effort at all! I used bad gal waterproof eyeliner to create the shape and Blackground paint pot over the top. To set it matte I used Mac's carbon on a 239 brush and patted it obver the top. I then used Bourjois mascara in 1001 lashes and their rose mythic 3d lip gloss on the lips. I could not see to much blush on the cheeks so I used a little dusting of Macs beauty powder in pretty baby from the Hello kitty colection. I like this look as it is different from most looks out there and has a kind of 60's feel which I love.

Let me know what you think?

Hot and not - November 2009

The shops are all decked out in xmas bits so I am starting to feel christmassy. I love this time of year xx

In my house hold November has been renamed 'Movember'. My husband has been growing his 'Mo' or moustache as it is more commonly known in aid of raising funds for prostrate cancer. My dad died from the awfull desease in 2001 and this is a great way of honouring his memory. To donate go to http//

Red hair.
I have decided for the foreseeable future I want to be a red head. May be something to do with autumn (or fall for you american gals out there) but I had this urge. So my local salon did my hair in deep red brown and I love it!

Mac's Liquid last liners.
These babys line neatly and quickly and stay put ALL day! In fact until you use and industrial strength oily make up remover. I have the point black and blue herizon. Both are georgous and these are my new love!


Weather-NOT. A. FAN. OF. RAIN.

Palmer cocoa butter gel.
This is an Awful product just felt like my body was in an oil slick for ages after! I think i'll stick with baby oil in the future!

I am going to Spain for my 30th in May next year and I am not in bikini shape so I will have to get my butt in gear! I have an exam on Tuesday 10th Nov so after this date - Operation BIKINI! Any hints or tips let me know!

Let me know your hot and nots-I love reading them!

New video! A make up look inspired by Hayley Williams

I have today posted a new video which I filmed in the week. Unfortunately I posted it late as my dog got attacked so things have been dramatic round here to say the least! It is inspired by the make up Hayley Williams wore in her band Paramores video 'Crushcrushcrush' (Above) . It is a blue eyelinered look which suits all eye colours. To get this look I used Rimell Stay Matte foundation and Mac's select cover up (nw20) for the base. UDPP on the eye followed by the light blue eyeshadow from Sleek make up's Divine eyshadow in Acid then the sleek ink pot in denim. This line is then defined by the darker lue in the pallette followed by lashings of Benefits Bad gal mascara in blue. I used a creme de nude on the lips which I love!

Have a go and try it out!

Big hugs
