I loved the eye-makeup on Rihanna in the recent spread in W-Magazine.
She looks absolutely flawless and super sultry!
Although Rihanna naturally has flawless skin from the-off, it’s obvious the photos have been heavily edited as Naomi Campbell & Iman also look flawless, and as if they haven’t aged since their 20’s.
I wanted to take inspiration from the eye makeup that Rihanna is sporting in this particular shot, and create something similar for my next tutorial - and this is the result.
(Please note that this look is not intended to look like Rihanna, it’s simply inspired by)

Here is my tutorial on ‘How to cover-up hyperpigmentation’
If you suffer with dark skin pigmentation on your face or body then here is a quick tutorial showing you the best product to use to cover this up - giving you the confidence to go out without the thought of being judged.
After looking on YouTube, I noticed the lack of tutorials on how to cover hyperpigmentation. So, I decided to film one.
My Aunt has suffered with it really bad since she fell pregnant, and struggles to cover it up with high-street makeup products.
Granted camouflage makeup isn’t as cheap as drugstore concealers, but it’s well worth the purchase if you do suffer with pigmentation, especially on the face.
Using camouflage makeup will give you the confidence to go out in public without the fear of people staring at you.
This is a ‘before & after’ of my Aunt after filming the tutorial. It’ll be live on my channel next week - www.youtube.com/smiles2310
The key product I used here was Dermacolour foundation (used in the same way as a concealer)
This product will cover everything from pigmentation to tattoos.
It needn’t be heavy as you can also purchase Derma Fluid which sheers the product down - meaning it won’t compromise the pigment of the makeup but instead it’ll become thinner, feeling less heavy when applied on the skin.
Used alone, it does need a little warming up first; I do this by applying it to the back of my hand & then on the skin pigmentation.
Getting messy, playing with texture & colour today!
I love oil paintings, and they are the inspiration for this creative mess.
This mobile shot is a small scale practice for something I’ve got in mind to shoot soon!

I depotted all of my favourite lipsticks today.
I had two of these palettes already made-up from a while back, but I bought two new empty palettes yesterday.
I’ve collected so many great lipsticks over the past year that I simply can’t carry them all around in my kit, so it’s ideal for me to crush them into these palettes as a space saver.
Today I created a bright palette & one that contains deeper shades.
If you’re starting out with new palettes & a ton of difference lipsticks, I would advise putting all them in a colour order as best as possible.
I have so many shades of Red, and ideally I would of liked to of put them in one palette in a range of dark to light shades, but I created my palettes at different times so I wasn’t able to do this.
But you would find it beneficial in picking out the shade you want if they are all together in a colour order.
You can get these palettes from a variety of makeup brands. And also rather cheaply on eBay for an unbranded version from China!
Enjoy depotting your Lippy ladies! 💄💋
