How To: Sultry Evening Out

Night Makeup Look

While a day look should be clean and subtle, your look for stepping out on the town can be bold and sultry.

You start by doing the same steps as you would for aday lookuntil you get to the part where you will contour your cheeks.  At this point use a light tan colour and place your brush along the cheek and top of your ear.  If you lightly shade that area, it will give you the appearance of cheekbones. 

Apply a blush to your cheeks with a more natural colour.

How To: No Fuss Day Look

No Fuss Day Look

Everyone's version of day makeup is different.   Many people wear a more bold evening look in the day, I know I have.  For this blog we will stick with a very simple look that keeps true to your natural beauty.

TIP: Blend, Blend, Blend!  There is nothing worse than having sharp harsh lines when you walk out the door.  Make sure you blend upwards or you will make the eye droopy. Only Hugh Grant can pull that look off.

How to: The Perfect Lips


The Perfect Pout

We all want those awesome kissable lips, but there's a little bit more to it then simply smearing on some lipstick.

  TIP: Always hydrate or use a lip scrub to keep your lips soft and crack-free.  Try Fresh Lip Scrub or Glamglow.

Follow these steps to get that Perfect Pout:

1) Pat your foundation over your lips

2) Lightly powder lips

3) Line lips with sharpened pencil, start with the peaks and the middle of your bottom lip then connect the line

Ganguro Girl - Take a trip to Tokyo

Ganguro Girl Makeup

Ganguro (ガングロ)is an alternative fashion trend among young Japanese women that started the mid-1990s, distinguished by a dark tan and contrasting make-up liberally applied by fashionistas

This was my fave look that we did in the fashion module which I just completed last week. Its kinda insane but a lot of fun to recreate! I did a less intense version but it still came out just as good!

1st get yourself some little rhinestones or stickers, you don't need to go out and get expensive ones the dollar store is a great place to get these.
