Chapter 4: Leaving Home

Jarl stared up at the ceiling of his room and once again traced one of the hundreds of knotted patterns which had been carved into it. The night seemed to have lasted for an eternity, but now that the gong had sounded through the city, he wished that it could last a little longer. His… Read More…

Chapter 3: The Ink-Smith

The rain had not stopped for several hours and Astrid could no longer remember what it felt like to wear dry clothes. Every single item was heavy with rain, especially her wolf skin, which weighed down on her like a dead body. The black veil around her face stuck to her like a second skin…. Read More…

Chapter 2: Jarl Vǫrn

The line of dwarfs outside the palace had doubled in length since his arrival in the early hours of the morning and now stretched along the entire wall of the stone hall. Some dwarfs were more richly dressed than him, but the prevalence of rough, woolen, dark blue and black cloaks, and tattered black, mud… Read More…

Chapter 1: The Guide

The sun had barely been up for more than an hour, but the heat had already caused a long trickle of sweat to run down her spine. Around her, the humans trudged on. Many of them were so tired they could feel their bones creak with every step. After all the weeks of travel, most… Read More…

Historical Makeup – Édith Piaf

Édith Piaf is one of those singers who, even if you don’t know who she is, you’ve almost definitely heard her music at some point. For the historical makeup series, I thought I would start out with her look rather than start off with something like Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn. I’ll do those looks eventually, but I think… Read More…

Emotions Series: Emotional Repression + DIY tutorial

As some of you know from my last tutorial I’ve been playing around with my background and lighting to see what I could do with my photography. This one was a little frustrating at first (I’m so used to working with a black background) but in the end, I was happy with all the interesting… Read More…

Pastel Snow Queen

I made the crown for this look back in February, and it’s been sitting on my desk taunting me since then, but each time I tried to film a snow queen look I absolutely hated it. This time I decided to switch things up, change the background, experiment with my lighting and set up and… Read More…

I’m Now Moving To Patreon

Now, before you freak out, don’t worry, I will still be posting a makeup tutorial a week, but things have got to change if I still want to be making content a year from now. I’ve resisted setting up a Patreon for a long, long time, but the way YouTube is going I won’t be… Read More…

Easy Colourful Skull Makeup

I don’t know why but I’ve been really into skull makeup lately, I think I might even keep doing them way after Halloween, but for the moment I thought I would keep up my ‘simple’ Halloween looks. I think a lot of people see looks like this and get a little intimidated, but they don’t have… Read More…

How To Make A Face Cast

A few years ago I filmed a tutorial with Stuart Bray on how to take a face cast. Like a lot of special effects, it’s not the easiest thing to make and the tools and equipment needed aren’t always massively affordable. I’ve had a lot of questions asking about a cheaper, easier option, so today… Read More…
