Pro Palettes

I love a good eye shadow palette, it just saves so much faffing about for me to have all my colours in one place.

I don't always have to have high end luxury eye-shadows because high street can be just as good and I am loving the British Beauty Bloggers collaboration with Makeup Revolution in her Fortune for the Brave palette. It has such a good range of shades and none of those pointless ones that you'll never use. I love it that much that I've added it to my student kits because it covers all bases. That's something I always find hard to find in a palette so hands up to this one!

As an everyday palette I can highly recommend the Laura Mercier......

I love the soft shades and the pay off is just perfect. It provides for those who want a soft natural look and also has the darker tones to move into the evening without needing another palette. This is one my handbag can't live without.

I really love the new range The Estée Edit. It's like a younger version of Estée Lauder with more one trend colours for the younger generation. One of my favourite pieces is the Kendal Jenner palette. It's a mix between day and glam for the girls who like a bit of glamour in their look. The packaging is so cute too, it adds fun into your makeup bag.

Top tip!

Pack on colour with Jamie, my flat stiff eye shadow brush or build up colour with Bowie, a soft blending brush.

Soften any edges using Sissy!

Pro Skills

I am so excited for this new course! Our bridal and occasional makeup course has been so popular and given so many opportunities for people to start their makeup career, it’s great to see. As you can image though, it’s very difficult to teach people all the skills needed to become a makeup artist in one week. That’s why I have now introduced our Pro Skills Course, as this is a perfect top up to the Bridal and Occasion Makeup. If you feel like you’ve nailed the ‘going out’ looks market and are doing ok with your bridal work but really want to push yourself forward into the fashion industry, then this course is for you!
