Sunkissed Glamorus Makeup Look !

wedding makeup
This makeup look i had created for Wedding magazine as i perfect for summer or even to give you very authentic sun-kisses look during the winter time.
Also red lips give you bit of colors and is perfect soft look for Red Carpet or any glamorous  night  out .
Step 1: Blend the bronze eyeshadow across the whole eyelid and take the color under the eyes as well. Any bronze eyeshadow is good, and i used Mac Cosmetics Bronze and Sisley Phyto-ombre (gold) for more affordable version Rimmel London Mono eyeshadow in Spicy Bronze.
Use curlers for curling the lushes before apply Black mascara.
Step 2: For sun kisses completion take a bronzer with large ,soft  brush tap any excess powder and apply under your cheek bones. Remember not to put too much of the products and going all over the face as sometimes will look too blotchy, very soft and blend blend blend..
Sweep a touch across your forehead, temples and chin and bridge of your nose for bronze look.
My favorite Bronzes that i like using are :Nars, Rimmel (natural bronze) ,Bobbi Brown
Step 3: Make sure the lips are very well moisturizer, using the lip-liner is great way to define the lips and prevent of blinding especially with bold red colors.
I used Kiko Lipliner  Geranium Red 3o6 follow by Topshop Daredevil . the good this is that both are under tenner.

Advertising Campaign Red or Dead (behind the scene)

AW14 Behind the Scenes shoot with Red or Dead Team .

I had a change to be working with the creative Red or Dead team.

Is always a great experience and challenge when you have to work with clients for first time and is very important to be very creative,professional and to deliver up to their standards.

This photoshoot is for their AW14/15 collection.

The idea and the theme was mix of school drop out, and pretty in punk. We had two lovely beautiful models, Camille Munn and BB, to front the shoot, and sourced some great locations around London to take some snaps…

The shoot started very early morning where we all meet up for makeup and hair preparation.
I had very beautiful models and would like to share some makeup products using on the shoot.
Camila Munn got beautiful dark skin and perfect eyes shape for any makeup looks.
We decide to keep natural definition on the eyes using eyeliner in black by Kryolan makeup.
Define the lips with Mac cosmetics lip liner in Brick
Flow by matte red lipstick pro palette by Mac cosmetic (Dare you )

After few hours makeup and hair done both girls looked beautiful and all dress up with amazing Red or Dead shoes and some accessories we had great locations for our shoot.
It was very stress free till the moment we walked to our first location.
The heavens decided to open up for nearly our whole day of shooting, meaning many of our plans had to change!
But all of us and Red or Dead girls know how to power through, (whilst having a good time obviously!).
We had a great day and great shoot at the end even the rain didn’t stop us of producing the final looks and leaving everyone happy and exited to see the final images.

take a look at our sneak peak snaps of behind the scenes of the day, and see how we did!

Protect your lips with SPF lipstick this summer !!!

Summer time is here and most of the time we forget to look after our lips when we are exposed to sun light. Lips are very delicate place frequent places that you will get burn.
Lip gloss doesn’t count as is very shiny and will stay on the surface attract sunlight that lips will get burn.
The best is to start using lip balm with SPF that will protect your lips.

With my experience I found sometime the less cost brand are the easiest and most effective lip balm that are non sticky,non greasy and will condition and protect your lips with SPF 15.

.Palmers Cocoa Butter lip balm with SPF 15 with Vitamin E


.Carmex Moisturising Vanilla lip balm SPF 15


. Bobbie Brown lip balm SPF 15 non greasy


. Kiehl’s lip balm SPF 15


.Laura Mersier Hydratint SPF 15
With add a hint of colour HydraTint with SPF15 shields your lips from damaging UVA and UVB rays, keeping them soft and supple. Formulated with mint and orange breath-freshening flavour, this luxurious lip balm also adds a hint of colour for perfect, flawless lips.


Applying lip balm with SPF 15 before you apply your favourite lipstick is not only will soft your lips also will protect your lips from sun burning. When your lipstick rubs off then the balm won’t rub off straight away like it would on top because it would be the first thing to rub off.

If you are not lipstick person and you still want to look great and feel great on your holiday I would suggest this beautiful soft creamy lipstick with SPF 15.
You will look great and your lips will be still protected from the sun damage.

– YSL Rouge Volupte SPF 15
Peach Passion and Extreme Coral are my favourite for summer sun kissed look
Very smooth creamy texture that leaves the lips soft with radiant colour with SPF 15


– Clinique High Impact SPF 15.

I love it Pure Posh colour is my favourite
They are high on colour and aparantley will stay for 8 hours. It is highly moisturizing shades that continually smooth, soft and again with SPF 15

– Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick SPF 18


-Kiko Glossy Stylo SPF 15


-Chanel SOIN TENDRES LEVRES Hydra-Treatment Lip Care SPF 15protect agents UV damage


Hope you like my choice !!!

Have a happy summer



How to create a smoky eye with black and silver eyeshadow

Party look to create with only black and silver eyeshadow colours sometimes we all avoid as we don’t want to make mistake and to look like we have punched black eyes.
I desire to write and share some great products that are available to creative this look for any time going out,

When I do dark smokey eyes I normally prep the skin with moisturiser and I’m working on the eyes first as it maybe a bit eyeshadow drops on the skin. I like my models skin to look nice and clean.
After when I’m done with eyes I have to clean the skin and put your favourite foundation for clean polish mess free look.

Here is eyes shadows products that I use on my model to create this smokey eyes.

I prepared the eye lid with bit eye primer (stay all day liquid eye primer from Stilla £13 ) for long lasting and crease free look.

After I did apply Bourjois 24H Colour in Merville d’argent no:1 £6.99 with my mac 224 brush all over the lids as a base colour.
You can use any light base colours over the lids and brow bow for bit highlight.

With Loreal Color infallible Yeshadow in Eternal black £6.99 use on the lower lush line and smoke out the socket line
With this glittery eyeshadow.

Bleeding very well on the socket line .

After you can apply a pop of Stilla foil finish eyeshadow in platinum ,£33.50 on the inner corners of the eyes.

For the lips create a shimmery gleam on lips with Bobbie Brown High shimmer lip gloss in beach with vitamin C and E for high shine ,£18

You can compliment the whole look with very light touch of Mac Spring shin powder blush , £18

Here is the look.
