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!

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.

Tanning trials and tribulations

Tanning season is upon us ladies (and gentlemen), and to celebrate the arrival of 30 degree (Celsius!) weather, summer storms, white beaches, and an influx of mozzies and flying ants, I thought I would save you the trouble of hunting for the perfect fake tan, and discuss my own findings. A child of one white,…

“One more facelift & you’ll be able to blink your lips”

Morris – First Wives Club Another in our “Sister from Another Mister” Series, we discussed writing about the differences between normal cosmetic skincare and cosmeceutical skincare. I have already touched on this a little but I thought what might be even more useful is to tell you guys a little about the way skincare products…

Part One: Are you even Legit?

So I asked my very best BFF what else people would like to know and she said ever so wisely, “what to look out for at a beauty salon that indicates they’re legit and hygienic” among other things. So I bring to you the ever so brilliant Sister from Another Mister Series – Part One:…

Just Got Real

A crazy exciting announcement: Morgan & Elwood just became a real live thing! Gone are the endless days of planning in my head, the never ending business plan, and notes scribbled everywhere. It’s ALIIIVVVVVEEEEE people! So sure it’s not the full plan yet but I had to start somewhere so I have officially opened my…
