Magnum 25th Birthday 

For all pleasure seekers & those that love Magnums, it’s time to celebrate! Magnum are celebrating their 25th Birthday! 

How will you be celebrating? Will you be indulging in your favourite Magnum Ice-Cream? Or by looking at the images from the Birthday campaign shoot I was fortunate enough to do the make-up for? Either way I am sure you will be visiting your local shop to pick up your favourite Magnum’s very soon! ;)
Classic Chocolate Magnum Ice-Cream provided inspiration for this eye catching contrasting look. Using creamy white & black tones in a classic winged eyeliner look, matte defined skin for soft sculpting, finished perfectly with strong glossy white and dark chocolate lips that look good enough to eat! 
There were many creations inspired by the Classic, Almond and White chocolate Ice-Creams.  So keep your ice cream loving eyes out for more images! During the next few months Magnum and I have been posting on social media, revealing more chocolate inspired creations! There will also be plenty more behind the scenes footage and pictures coming your way! As well as another shoot we did last month to celebrate their silver anniversary ;) 
Which is your favourite Magnum Ice-Cream?

Long Lasting, Shine Free and Mattifying. The NEW Matte Veil from Illamasqua!
A while back now Illamasqua launched Hydra Veil which was a huge success in the beauty blogging world and is always a huge hit with my models before I apply Illamasqua Skin base! Hydra Veil in a clear gel which is designed to work with dryer skin improving the skins hydration levels creating a smoother surface which helps apply foundation evenly over the skin. Overall it enhances the long-wear of make-up for an all day look.  
I have been waiting for Illamasqua to create an alternative Veil for combination skin like mine, So I am very excited to reveal on the 8th May 2014 the NEW Matte Veil will go on sale at £30 (30ml pot *See above pictures) on www.illamasqua.com 
The new Matte Veil comes in the same pot as Hydra Veil with a hygienic spatula provided to decant the product needed for each application. The secret product is Butyelene Gycol which dissolves the skins overactive oil levels whilst drawing and retaining moisturise and the Sodium Hyaluronate which keeps the skin feeling healthy and balanced resulting in a primed matte finish to the skin ready for make-up application. This beauty will control any shine you might have throughout the day or on a photo-shoot. Perfect for us make-up artists instead of getting that translucent powder out for touch ups! However I would slightly finish the foundation of with fine loose powder in the T-zone area for that extra Matte finish. 

I can’t wait to use it this week on my next make-up job.
Will you be purchasing Matte Veil?

Limited Edition Kiko Cosmetics Collection- Boulevard Rock 

This KIKO collection is limited edition and out in stores now! As soon as the post man delivered this collection I fell in love.  The collection contains some new products as well as some new shades of products which have been released before. It also contains the Skin Glow – The face moisturiser which was in one of their previous collections I keep packing into my make-up kit at my make-up jobs.

I think KIKO Cosmetics is my new make-up obsession. The packaging is to die for, the quality of the products impress me every time I use them and finally KIKO is affordable to keep treating myself every time a new collection is available. 

Have you tried KIKO Cosmetics before?
