June 2017 Glossybox Unboxing and Mini Review

The June 2017 Glossybox arrived as I was in between makeovers in the studio and sat teasing me at my makeup station for over three hours before I could take a look inside.

The wait was worth is as I immediately knew I’d enjoy using the products housed inside as soon as I clocked them. I was also really excited to see a sneak preview of the debut novel by Louise Pentland, perhaps known to you as Sprinkle of Glitter over on YouTube (aloha Sprinklerinos!) I’ve watched Louise over on her YouTube channel for a good while now and really feel like she’s growing with the times and her audience. She’s funny, witty, a little sarcastic (but in the best way) and oh so honest, so I was thrilled to see her novel preview inside the box.

It took me all of half an hour or so to read the full preview and I was well and truly hooked. Cosied up on the sofa on Sunday afternoon, coffee in hand, pick and mix to the side, I worked my way through the preview enjoying each page – I laughed and even shed a tear too. The thing about the book is that it’s so relatable and so endearingly written that it’s very hard to put down. I was disappointed when I reached the end. That disappointed that I went ahead and pre-ordered a copy immediately to be delivered to my Kindle on the launch date of the 29th June. I think it’ll feel like a long wait, but I’m sure it will definitely be worth it!

Instaglam Wedding Guest Makeup with Nina

Over the last few weeks I’ve had the absolute pleasure of making over some beautiful ladies ahead of their special events. One of my favourite makeovers of late has been on one of my beautiful regular clients and good friend, Nina.

I love it when Nina books in for her makeovers as she absolutely adores glamorous, exciting and adventurous makeup looks which allow me to be a little more creative. Ever a fan of a heavy eye makeup look and full coverage glamorous skin, this time Nina asked for a dramatic pink and golden eye with strong contouring on the cheekbones ahead of a summery wedding she was attending at Whitley Hall in Sheffield.

Instagram style makeup is something that I’m often asked to re-create, and I’m all too happy to do so. As a makeup artist, it’s my job to hone the skills to adapt to any style of makeup according to what my lovely clients want to wear, and with makeup being a form of self-expression, of course everybody will have a different style and that’s what makes us unique.

Thanks to her angular haircut and gorgeous jawline, Nina can carry off heavier looks extremely well and always suits a beautiful deep contour and wet-look highlight which we created here. I wanted to share her beautiful makeover today as I think she looks absolutely stunning and so many of you loved the image I uploaded to my Faebook business page.

I’ve detailed a list of the products used below that were used on Nina’s face, neck and décolletage to get that beautifully sculpted and polished look.

Father’s Day gifts with the MANKIND Grooming Box

As Father’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to bring you a special post and video all about a great Father’s Day gift idea. I’ve noticed the number of my male readers creeping up over the last few months, so I decided it might be a good idea to start introducing a few luxury male grooming products too just in case my lovely guy readers and viewers might enjoy them.

My dad is a photographer so he loves nothing more than being on the other side of the camera, but today I finally got him to agree to be filmed to make a special Father’s Day gift idea video with me. We were so kindly sent the Confidence Edition of the Mankind Grooming Box  to try out – essentially a beauty box for the guys full of luxury grooming products designed to keep the men in our life both looking and feeling their best. Mankind is an online luxury male grooming website with over 10,000 products including lifestyle, tech and fashion too. They offer worldwide shipping and even next day delivery for all you last minute shoppers looking for the perfect gift pronto. You’ll also find expert advice and buying guides too, so it’s much more than just an online store and more of a luxury destination.

To say I was bowled over with the quality of the box would be an understatement. I knew as soon as I pulled it out of the parcel box that it was a high quality piece, and I couldn’t wait to share it with my dad. Now, my dad is by no means a product junkie. In fact, he and I are complete opposites when it comes to grooming products. I love nothing more than drawers and drawers full of beauty treats, whilst dad is happy to wash and go without any of the fuss.

Nevertheless, he took his testing role very seriously and even wrote me several A4 sheets full of his opinions on each of the products. The results were extremely surprising, but I won’t spoil the surprise for you.
