What I’ve been doing over winter

I was originally going to upload this on my second channel, but for some reason I’ve been unable to access it for over a week because You Tube seems to think I’m hacking into my own account. I’d set myself a deadline for this and I really want to stick to it, so at least… Read More…

Making Some Changes

Over the weekend I uploaded my first video new makeup tutorial in over two years. It was a bit nerve wracking as I’m completely changing the way I’m making my videos, but despite that, I’m happy I’ve finally made the jump. The videos are longer (SO much longer) more interesting to watch and edit, and… Read More…

Please Don’t Cry

Finally, after well over a month since starting this piece, it’s finished, and the baby (my son) who inspired it has finally arrived. Want to know something weird? I got this idea when I was around 6-7 months pregnant, and once potato arrived, the baby in this piece actually looked like him. Yes, a little… Read More…

Painting My Blue Bees and Designing My Next Fabric

It’s been a while since I made a new fabric design, and I’ve wanted to make some more bee themed fabrics for the next batch of wax wraps I’m making. If you don’t know what those are, I’m working on a video for on over on my lifestyle blog SimplyKlaire.com which will hopefully be up in… Read More…

Emotions Series: Resentment

You know, for something that was so fun to draw and paint this piece was an absolute nightmare to scan. At some point, I think I might have to replace my scanner to something a little more powerful, because all the subtle yellows, greens, and blues were getting completely washed out. Which on one hand makes… 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…
