A Quick, Simple and Affordable Bridal Look

Simple Bridal Makeup

For the second look in my mini-bridal series, I thought I should try and do a quick, affordable and seriously simple look. Something anyone can re-create, especially if they just want something light and natural. Yes, the last one was also simple, but to be honest, most of these will be. It’s the kind of… Read More…

Carving A Guitar For The First Time

Carving a Guitar

Before this I’d carved a comb, a triptych, then I decided to be a little bold – possibly stupid – and carve a guitar. My friend Rob challenged me to carve one of his beautiful guitars, so obviously I took over a year and a half to psych myself up to it. After a couple of different ideas, I… Read More…

The Power of Makeup | Transformation Makeup

The power of Makeup

In my anti-sexy series I’ve been trying to show the more character-based, realistic side of makeup. Makeup that tells a story instead of just being about looking pretty or sexy. But there’s one look I haven’t done yet, which I’ve been dying to do, and that’s the two extremes of skin transformation makeup. It’s the… Read More…

DIY Eyeball Jar

DIY EYEBALL JAR

I don’t know why, but last week I decided I wanted to make a small series of preservation jars with eyeballs, hearts and brains in it. Today I started with an eyeball jar, yes, I know it’s a little more appropriate for Halloween, but I think you guys know I don’t like to box my videos… Read More…

There are two pictures I’ve had on my desktop for the last two months which I’ve been meaning to combine into a look for ages. One is a look from Dustin Baylard and the other from Saeed Ramez. Originally I was going to do a separate look for each of them, but then I thought, why not… Read More…

DIY Watercolour Masquerade Mask

Watercolour

This week’s masquerade mask is a little more colourful than last weeks. When I asked you guys on Twitter which of my mask suggestions you preferred, the watercolour mask won by a fair majority, closely followed by a galaxy themed mask – which I’ll be doing soon. This mask though is really really easy to… Read More…

Anti-Sexy Female Boxer

The Anti Sexy

One week I do a bridal look, the next, I do a female boxer – post winning the fight – I do seem to love extremes. That being said, I didn’t want this look to be a my-face-is-now-pulp look. I like to look at the tutorials in this series as creating characters, my character won… Read More…

DIY Masquerade Mask

Masquerade Mask

Oh, I’ve missed making these! It’s been so long since I last did a masquerade mask, my glue gun was starting to think I’d left it for another medium. Speaking of glue guns, while I still use it quite a bit in today’s tutorial, I think I want the next few videos to focus on having… Read More…

Bridal Makeup: Spring

Spring Bridal Makeup 2017

Finally, I’ve started one of the series I’ve been promising for ages, the bridal makeup series. The plan is to do a few specific looks; bridal makeup for spring, summer, winter, artistic and a classic, heavier, evening look.  Today’s look is simple, barely-there foundation, a light touch of lipstick but the main focus is the eyes. I… Read More…
