Get ready with me - Work


In this video I get ready for work,,  I like to have a clean flawless matte completion for work, keeping my face very neutral besides the bold Pink lip and a dash of rose coloured blush. I like to change the style of my makeup I wear to work everyday.

For a flawless completion I believe the key is to use good makeup brushes, my favourite brush for foundation is Sigmas Synthetic flattop kabuki brush, Its amazing for applying liquid foundation!
A tip for using any makeup brush is to clean it regularly, This will benefit the application of product to your skin, and by cleaning your brushes often you will not be adding bacteria and other unwanted things onto your skins therefore not getting acne from your makeup brushes.

Hope you all enjoyed watching this video, have a very merry Christmas :)

Silver Glitter French Manicure Nail Tutorial

Tis the season to get festive, so why not try blinging your nails out for the festive season, In this video I show you a cute and simple nail look you can use for the festive season or anytime you wish to let your hands do the talking (haha). This nail look was inspired by christmas lights tinsel and obviously christmas one of my favourite holidays!

This nail look can be created cheaply and is super quick and very simple, A simple tip when creating this nail look is to not worry to much when applying the white french tip as the glitter will cover this anyways. It is purely to make the glitter stand out better. :)

Candy Cane Nail Tutorial


In this video I create a simple Christmas Inspired Candy Cane Nail Polish Look, Perfect for the festive season. This look is very simple to achieve all you will need is a small nail brush, a stead hand and red and white polish, Dont forget your base and top coat though for that perfect finish! :)

TIP: When doing this candy cane nail look be sure to have a steady hand when painting on the lines, Having a steady hand is very important when doing this look because the lines look so much nicer having good clean edges rather then bumpy edges  (It all takes practice)

Let me know if you have any nail polish tutorial requests etc

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Christmas :)

My Current Hair Routine - For healthy, Shiny Hair


In this video I show you my current hair routine, this routine helps make your hair shiny and healthy and silky soft! I have been paying a lot of attention to haircare lately as I am trying to grow my hair out, Previously I used to wear hair extensions but the extensions I had were horrible quality and the clips never held. The reason I am paying so much attention to my hair these days is that a year or two ago I was given a perm which was over processed leaving my hair very burnt, orange and frizzy. It was a terrible experience as I had to straighten my hair everyday and use conditioner in my hair everyday to try and prevent my hair from falling out!!
My hair is so soft and is growing very fast these days after doing this routine, I am so in love with Redkens Headglide heat protectant is amazing! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to invest in a great heat protectant which will look after your hair from the heat.
A great secret to heat protectants is that even if you are not using a heat product on your hair the heat protectant will protect your hair from the sun, just like sunscreen but for your hair :D

Hope you enjoyed this video, more on the way.
