PHOTOSHOOT | Goddess of the Sea

I have to admit I feel extremely embarrassed yet unusually excited to post this. Anyone who knows me knows that I am always, without fail, the one behind the camera. I’ve never had my picture taken properly – that means, not including cellphones or pictures with people I love or taken on holiday. I’ve never been the one that has to stand there and at least try to look pretty. So when Caterina of Kateidoscope (who […]

TUTORIAL | Neon Spring Sunset

So when Cate asked me to take some pictures of her wearing a pair of very 1980s-themed leggings, I couldn’t help but ask her for something in return. I’ve never done a more “out there” makeup look on myself or any of my friends, or anywhere outside of makeup school, to be honest. And I have never used neon or bright colours for eyeshadow on myself or anyone else, ever. So this was the perfect excuse. […]

PHOTOSHOOT | Neon Sunset

It’s that time of the year again when Caterina from Kateidoscope.com asks me to take pictures of her for her blog, and I decide to do her makeup to match her clothing. I’m quite shocked at how well this look turned out considering it was completely unplanned – I just knew I wanted to use yellow. Everything else was decided as I went along with the brush. Makeup look details, explanatory chart and products list coming […]

I finally – finally – managed to get this up! You guys have no idea the issues we had with this. This is my first makeover of a series I’m hoping to do if I rope in enough friends/guinea pigs, featuring my good friend Caterina of Kateidoscope.com. She’s never been into makeup, so I thought I’d do an easy, everyday look on her and walk her through all the steps. Today she even asked me to […]

Calling All Beauties

  While I’ve been away I’ve been silently mulling over an idea. I see so many collaboration requests on work forums and blogger Facebook groups, but it’s usually commercially inclined or based on a “like for like, follow for follow” basis. I want my follower count to go up organically, not because I liked someone’s holistic yoga page or gave their homemade soaps a shout-out on an Instagram picture! One of my goals for 2016 […]

I’m trying to work on as many portfolio shoots as possible so I have a larger body of work to hold on to when I finish my MA. Sadly, I don’t always have time to edit pictures right away and it’ll probably take me quite a long time to get to all of these. So how to resist the urge of showing them around? Well, don’t. Edit them on your phone! I just downloaded my favourite […]

Sleek Makeup – Lipstick Collection & Lip Swatches

Beauty / Shopping

The other day while I was cleaning out my drugstore lipstick collection I noticed I had dozens of lipsticks in the same colours: mauve/dusty pink, wine red/bordeaux, creamy peach and blue-based red. I started rummaging through my entire collection – drugstore, high-end, proper luxury and even liquid lipsticks and, to my horror, I had more than a hundred lipsticks fitting into each of those colours. And the worst part is that I had nothing but those colours! I […]

Give(away) Me Some Lip!

I did mention some big changes were about to happen, and you’re looking at them. To start this exciting new phase of my blog (and my life), I have decided to start decluttering my enormous makeup collection. While going through my lipsticks I found quite a large amount that I had purchased and, shamefully, never used. These are all brand-spankin’ new! They’ve been swatched, sanitised and put away neatly never to be touched again. Worst of all, […]
