After having a mooch through all the Pamela Anderson covers for Playboy Magazine, I found one from 2011 where I liked her makeup and wanted to recreate a version of it. And this is tutorial for it!!
You have to take into account when recreating makeup on someone else that their eye shape and face shape will be different, so you can expect a different outcome. But as long as you stick to the same colours and apply it in the same manner then it will resemble the makeup you are copying.
Here is a link to the cover photo of Pamela Anderson: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_vj2e1m7Hlgw/TQozmvwa07I/AAAAAAAAwmw/r2FRvYSYdBA/s1600/Celebutopia_NET.Pamela_Anderson.PLAYBOY.January_2011..jpg
House Of Lashes have landed on the ShowMe MakeUp desk this morning!
These are the new ‘Iconic’ lashes, and a set of bottom lashes to go with them.
I can’t wait to use these in a tutorial.
I don’t usually like thick banded lashes, but I’ve heard great reviews on these, so I will give them a go and let you know how I get on.
When using strip lashes with a thick band, warm them up with a hair dryer and then bend into a ‘C’ shape while they cool down.
The warmth from the hairdryer warms up the glue on the band which makes it moldable. So they should cool off into more of a curved shape which will sit better on your eyelid.
There’s nothing worse than a strip lash that keeps pinging-up one side!
You can purchase these lashes at www.houseoflashes.com
'Easter Bunny Face Paint' tutorial is now live n my YouTube channel.
If you are entertaining kiddies this easter, then why not give this face paint ago?!
I used generic face paints for this look, and only 3 colours, so no ‘product list’ required. Feel free to use any child friendly face paint.
Organising ‘some’ of my makeup kit!
I really do need more storage.
Since I uploaded my ‘Spring Time on trend’ makeup tutorial, I’ve spotted this beautiful photo of Cara Delevingne sporting the same look!!
I initially did the tutorial based around the orange lip we are seeing so much on the runways at the moment. And I decided to team that lip with its complementary colour - Blue.
Which I guess was an obvious choice for many makeup artists at the shows!
So if you love this makeup, please check out my tutorial as it’s pretty much a replica of this look.
A list of the products can be found in the description bar;

Today I had a play around with the StarGazer Semi Permanent Tattoo Pens.
I created a floral design with a splash of colour, and a puff of glitter!
There are 12 colours in the range and one correction pen.
01 - Black
02 - Deep Red
03 - Yellow
04 - Brown
05 - Bright Green
06 - Dark Green
07 - Purple
08 - Bright Red
09 - Bright Blue
10 - Dark Blue
11 - Orange
12 - Pink
For my creation I used Black (01) to outline my design, and then I used Pink (12) to colour in the petals, and I used (07) Purple to create some depth to the pink by lining the outer edge of the petals.
Within the swirl patterns I added a hint of the Blue (09) and I used the correction pen to drag the colour upwards creating a nice gradient.
This technique makes it possible to shade with the felt tip.
To create fine-line work you need to have a steady hand, use your little finger to counter balance yourself, and use the very tip of the pen to draw fine steady lines - use light pressure when doing this.
And if you wish to add thickness to the lines, you need to tilt the pen at an angle with a little extra pressure, and drag the pen in the desired direction. Using this technique will give you fuller lines and it’s also a great way to add depth and create a shadow effect.
All of the colours are highly pigmented and their staying power is brilliant!
If they get wet they will bleed so they need to be kept dry. And they last well for up to two days.
The product can be removed with makeup remover but note that it does stain your skin for couple of days, so I wouldn’t advise using them on your face.
Enjoy using them, I have!
