Beauty Horror Stories

I’m pretty sure everyone has at least one of these stories of their own, so being a beauty therapist/makeup artist you are 100% correct in that I have more than a few to tell! Personal experiences and many a client story as well. But hey! That’s how we learn what not to do right? So…

How to: Winter Sexy

I know this doesn’t exactly align with any of the northern hemisphere readers, but you can file this in your ‘to read’ pile for later. Winter in Sydney is a funny one anyway, we have the bluest skies, the least rainfall but we also get super excited about bringing out our boots, cute jackets and…

5 minute makeup cheat sheet

My utterly hilarious friend was looking at a Facebook post the other day at someone showing their “4 minute makeup look”. And to be blatantly honest, our reactions weren’t exactly stellar. This was the not so good side of ‘is she actually wearing makeup’ which is funny because normally I’m ranting about the other end…

What’s inside my professional makeup kit

I forget all the time that my big professional makeup kit is every girls’ dream…. In fact it used to be MY dream. I was a skinny, awkward 12 year old dreaming of a shiny makeup case filled to the brim with colours and glitters and a million lip glosses and it’s funny to think…

Caking and the YouTube Adventure

I FINALLY did it… and uploaded some video tutorials! I am so used to being off camera that being on camera is not only terrifying but so hella awkward. So ignore my terrible camera, editing, speaking and you know…life skills and go check it out for a no-bullshit approach to making yourself look freakin fabulous….

Changes in trends in the last 10 years alone

Hi beautiful people, this year marks my tenth year as a makeup artist and hair stylist and a lot of clients recently have been asking me if I’ve seen many changes in style over the last decade (!! eeek!!!). It’s crazy to think that yes, ten years ago the work I did for clients, whether…

Create & Use Face Charts like a Pro

Ohhh my goodness I’m excited to write this post for you today because face charts for makeup artists are like colouring in books and arts and crafts for kids. This is one of my favourite things to play with when (ha..if) I have time and most of my makeup creativity comes out.  When you’re doing…

Delicious Valentine’s Day Makeup

Happy freakin VALENTINE’S DAY!!!! Whether you’re in a relationship or not, whether you care about Valentine’s Day or not… it’s a fantastic excuse to get dressed up and look absolutely drop dead gorgeous! I personally am celebrating alone, or potentially with my roomie having come to terms with the fact I may be a spinster…

Lashlashlashes! Eyelash extensions from a pro

I had a client once who had the most unbelievable eyelashes that I thought she had applied false lashes before she arrived for her makeup appointment. Turns out they were the rare and elusive eyelash extensions I had heard of but never seen or tried myself. Cue a friendship, sharing lash lady numbers and a…

Blogs, Beauty & Bubbles

I cannot believe I am finally back at it after so long since I last wrote and now this year has so much promise and excitement ahead as we leave hideous 2016 behind, and celebrate 2017! Any of you who know me know 2016 was a real doozy, but my 2017 so far has been…
