Anti Sexy Zombie Hunter

The Zombie Hunter Coming Home

Today I get to mix two of my favourite things, weathered makeup and zombies! The idea I had for this character is someone has a serious vendetta, and really, who could blame her? I wanted this character to look weathered, tired and battle worn. Also, she has the start of a serious a smoking habit. I… Read More…

The Mummy

The Mummy Makeup

Normally when I’m asked to collaborate with a film company I’m sent a trailer, a few stills and I have to figure out the rest. Today was a little different in the best kind of way. This time I was invited to London to meet Lizzie Georgiou – the makeup designer for The Mummy – were… Read More…

Zombie Trophy Hand Decoration

Zombie Hand

As if it wasn’t obvious enough that I have very morbid tastes, today I finally got around to finishing my zombie hand. She’s called Thumbelina – credit to DhinnaM for suggesting the name – and I love how she turned out! She’s been sitting on my desk, literally, withering away. Now she’s sitting right by the door,… Read More…

MAKEUP BOOK GIVEAWAY! :D

Giveaway

It’s been ages since I last did a giveaway, but instead of makeup, I thought I would giveaway my makeup books. I’ve been ruthlessly clearing out my life at the moment, including my makeup books which have been whittled down to the twoI think are the best out of all of them; Rae Morris’s Makeup Masterclass… Read More…

Fairy Lashes DIY

Like a lot of the DIY lashes I’ve made in the past, these are very simple to make. They require patience and a steady hand, but otherwise, they’re really simple to make.

The Elements: Air

The Elements- Air

If you’ve seen Avatar: The Last Airbender – the animated series, not the film – then you might get excited and think that this series is based on it. I’m afraid it’s not, it’s just the old-fashioned air, water, fire and earth elements. It’s an other series that has been on my list for ages, and… Read More…

Drawing Some of My Favourite Birds (and Turning them into Fabric)

Paintngs and Fabric

So, my sister has been pestering me to have a look at a fabric designing website she found for a while now called SpoonFlower. I kept putting it off because, between one thing and another, I just didn’t think I’d be particularly interested. Then I saw that they ran new challenges weekly on their website,… Read More…

This Is Why You Clean Your Makeup Brushes

This is Why you wash makeup brushes

I have one very big pet peeve…ok, there might be more than one – especially when it comes to makeup – but I think it’s pretty fair to say that this is my biggest. Dirty brushes. I cannot stand it when I see dirty brushes. I’m not talking ‘just used’ type dirty, I’m talking using-the-same-dirty-brushes-on… Read More…

Bridal Makeup: Festival Inspired Makeup

Bridal Festival Makeup

I thought it would be a good idea to have a few ‘alternative’ bridal looks done before I more onto the heavier bridal looks, so today I’ll be going with a festival theme. Flowers, winged liner and a few nice details around the eyes, and yes, I gave into the rhinestones, I couldn’t help myself!… Read More…

Making a Poppable Blister

Popping Blisters

Yup, you read that title right. Today I’m going to be showing you how to create a poppable blister. Because you never know when you might need to put someone off their dinner, permanently. Oddly enough it’s one of those special effects things that I’ve been trying to figure out for ages – over a year now -and… Read More…
