A chance for me to share my make up tips, tricks and portfolio with you fellow beauty lovers and addicts.
What an amazing review from a make up artist who I have been teaching with my online make up and business lessons. Thank you so much Charlotte. Pleasure helping you with all the lessons we have done. 

I started working with Sarah a few months ago. I noticed she did online lessons and as I live far away from any makeup schools I thought this could be a good option for me. Sarah has helped me with: my website, pricing, a business plan, ideas, photoshoots, moodboards, career development and many technical aspects of makeup applications.Nothing is too much trouble and even though I’ve not met her she feels like a friend. I teach some makeup classes myself and I know it is not easy to teach and explain how to do things. Sarah does it in a really caring, friendly and helpful way and you never feel embarrassed to ask or show your work.In my day to day work I feel much more confident now as well as in my portfolio building and looking for new opportunities available in makeup artistry.Her lessons are extremely good value for money and worth every penny. I have already recommended her to other makeup artists I know and will continue to do so. I can’t thank Sarah enough, our paths crossing has truly been a blessing to me as a person and in my career. xxxx

**Shiseido SS14 Lip Laquer Rouge & Lip Lacquer Gloss**

I was super excited to be sent these stunning high-end lip-glosses to try out from Shiseido. They are highly pigmented, feel amazing on the lips and have fabulous staying power. What more do we want from our lip products J

 Shiseido Lip Laquers are Shiseido’s best selling lip collection. The lacquer rouge range has an array of gorgeous shades to choose from ranging from bright pinks to deep reds, browns and corals.

Lacquer Rouge 6ml £23.50:

 These laquers are designed to drench the lips in a deep high shine colour which leaves an intense pigment than remains perfect until you take it off. I have tried the pink shade which is PK425 (see image) I usually stick to lighter shades but I fell in love with this when I tried it on myself.

 They are lovely and thick in colour and do stay on for hours, one thing I did notice was they did not feel sticky or greasy when on but more like silk.

 These laquers include a moisture coat and colour condense oils, which include intense colour pigments this results in ultra staying power.

 Lacquer Gloss 7.5ml £21.00:

 After the success of the laquer rouge collection Shiseido introduced the lacquer gloss range. These glosses provide an intense sheen and deep moisture to the lips with a gorgeous pop of colour.

 They have a unique 3 layer structure which improves your lips whilst on, see below for more details:

  •  Base Layer – refines the lip texture and smoothes out any roughness, which makes fine lines less visible.
  • Middle Layer – Generates clear moisturising colour for the perfect base
  • Top Layer – Gives the lips surface a vivid color that locks in moisture

I do tend to get dry lips, but with this gloss on my lips felt so silky, and what a great improvement in how soft they felt due to the moisturising ingredients

 The laquer glosses comes in 8 shades ranging from light lilacs right through to pinks, reds and nudes. Something for everyone.

Another thing I love about these glosses is that the applicator is an oval/diamond shape which feels so soft on the lips and I find coats them more evenly.

I gave my assistant one of the glosses to try in shade Mocha BR301. I like her to try new products when she can from different brands.

You can also purchase from selected House of Fraser and John Lewis stores

**YELLOW LIPS**

A sneaky shot form yesterdays 70’s inspired ski shoot. I created these lips using Kryolan shimmering vision palette as a base (shade yellow) I then topped that with OCC Lip Tar, which was a vivid yellow tone

As the clothing and lips were bright I wanted to keep the eyes pretty neutral therefore I used my Urban Decay 2 palette to create a bronzed eye effect 

I have added a couple of inspiration images from the photo shoot :-)

Final images to come soon

**DANIEL SANDLER WATERFLUID BLUSHERS**
I was looking for some new cream blushers for  my professional kit and thought I would give these a try after viewing many other brands. I purchased a trio set which included two blushers and a application brush.
Priced at £30 but is worth £46. So a good saving. Plus with the easter discount applied I got this for £24 which is amazing. I chose shades Cherub and Angel. A gorgeous pink tone and a light brown tone.
Follow the link below to see the collection. I used these today on a bridal job and was super impressed with the feel and pigment of these. They left the cheeks looking so fresh and dewy,

**RISE OF THE GUARDIAN ANIMATED FILM INSPIRED LOOK**

I am so happy with the outcome of my Rise of The Guardian inspired make up look. After months of planning and weeks or make up practice I can show them off in my portfolio.

I always like to showcase my thought process behind my creative photo shoots, which involves sharing the moodboards I make prior to the shoot.

For this photo shoot I made roughly 8 moodboards, one for each team member. Most importantly I had a lot referring to the make up as it was a look created by me (never done before) and I needed to know on the day which way the line work was going to go. Hence the moodboard showing the practice images.

I made quite a few for the photographer so I was able to portray my vision to her. This included hand poses and lighting for the look. Which she took on board perfectly. I wanted a dark gritty feel to the look to match Pitch’s mood with amazing shadows. 

It is very important for me I have ample research and moodboards on hand on the day of my shoot as this keeps me well organised.

Products I used to create my look:

Base, body and Hair:

Mehron Gold Metallic Powder and Mixing Medium Combo pack

Kryolan Gold Glitter Spray 

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Navy 

Eyes:

**Behind scenes image from high end fashion shoot **

Blue/black grungy eye for today’s shoot. I wanted to do quite a versatile look as I needed this look to suit all 9 outfits which the stylist Ian Tod put together for the shoot. I needed a look that would suit all but which I could touch up as the shoot progressed. As all outfits were black and white (so stunning) I opted for a little blue to add a little contrast. Using Fashionista gel liner, Urban Decay Cosmetics Smoked Palette, UB liner and Illamasqua black liner.More images to come soon from BTS and final edited images.

**NEW BLOG - KRYOLAN PROFESSIONAL AND ULTRA BRUSH RANGE**Hi All, I thought I would get a detailed blog in before my internet dies on me soon for when we move. I actually started making this blog a week ago, I now have time to sit and type up the details for it.I do have a nice brush collection, but as you all know us make up artists can never have to many brushes and although NARS and Extreme Make Up sent me some beautiful brushes to try I still WANT more, I just love collecting brushes from new brands and trying them out. Some brushes I keep just for my creative work and the rest for my shoots and bridal work. These will be for my fashion, beauty and bridal work.This is the first time I have tried the Kryolan brushes, you know what I am going to say next  as I am a huge Kryolan fan they are going to be nothing less than perfect.Kryolan have two different brush types in the range they have the Professional range and the Ultra range. Both made from natural materials.Professional RangeMade from natural hair bristles. The handle is produced from well seasoned wood and finished in silver enamel. The brushes I have are listed below:
Art No 1715 – Medium Powder Brush. This is actually one of the largest handled powder brushes I have ever had. Very well made and so soft. £12.15
Art No 3511 – Medium rounded eye shadow brush £6.15
Art No 3712 – Small to medium flat headed eye shadow brush £6.75
Ultra RangeMade from Red Marten bristles, which is a superior natural material and is known as European sable. They have a no paint finish, which means they receive no negative effect from brush cleaner. This can over time peel off the paint. These brushes are a little more expensive then the professional range. They come delivered in a stylish acrylic glass tube, which keeps them away from dust and keeps them nice and tidy. A nice little touch I think. 
Art No – 9714 10mm Rounded brush. For eye shadow applications. £9.75
Art No 9810 7mm Precision angled flat brush. I love this for creating cut creases into the socket area. £7.49
As you can see the ultra range is not that much more expensive than the professional range. Both well worth a try, a great selection of professional brushes for your kit and personal use. These are the first natural bristled brushes I have and I really love the feel of them. All so soft and one of my favourite qualities they have, dense bristles, which for me means lots of bristles packed in for better make up applications. You can view the full collections from Extreme Makeup HERESarah x
