Monday Makeup Lessons

  • I've never had really good brows, when I was 12 I over plucked them and I kept plucking every second day for years, I hardly had any brows left!
  • Then I stopped and now I do it twice a month! 
  • This was how my brows used to look 

  • My new favourite brow kit:

  • E30 Double Ended Brow/Spoolie

Brow Powder Duo - Medium Ash/ Medium Brown

Check out my shaping video to help you create the right shape:

Who me?? In Cosmopolitan magazine... 

All week long I've had comments about people seeing me in Cosmopolitan magazine. I was sure it wasn't me but I double checked my emails to make sure I hadn't sleep-emailed Cosmo into featuring me or something but no, I assumed it must have been a mistake. Maybe someone who looked like me or with a similar name.
It came as a total shock to me to get an email from a follower with a screenshot of it. 
I am over the moon!

It was this video that was featured, I'm still in shock!!

Thank you all so much for watching my videos. I can't believe a shy quiet girl from a small town has made it into Cosmopolitan magazine in India! Crazy!! 

Huge hugs and cakes all round today!!

Love Sineady xx

This is one of my favourite looks!
I might seem complicated but it get easier with time and it's a go-to look for me!

I edited this and I had lost my voice so I subtitled it instead, It's the only time I've ever done that!

Let me know what you think of subtitle, Are they helpful???
Or do you prefer voice overs???

Starting this Eye Makeup Brushes:

Blending Brushes - The most important of all the brushes. It will change the way your eye makeup looks. 

My favourites:
E25 Round Top Blending Brush

E32 Tapered Crease Blender
Slightly more tapered than the E25.

No:10 Small Socket Blender
Longer and thinner than the other two.

Flat Shader Brush - Perfect for packing on pigments of shadows. You can also use your finger tips. Can also be used to push shadow right at the roots of the lashes or blending out eyeliner. 

E24 Flat Shader/Lay Down Brush (previously E26 Flat Shader)

E32/33 Double Ended Tapered Crease Blender/Smudger
(This one is double ended) 

Pencil Brush - Great for adding highlight to the inner corner or smudging out eye liner. 

E23 Short Pencil

Eyeliner Brush - I link use thin fine liner brushes, As it allows you to control the amount of product you are apply.

E28 Ultra Fine Liner

Brow/Spoolie - An essential for great brushes. I can't be without my spoolie (Mascara wand) 

E30 Double Ended Brow/Spoolie

Long Lasting Lipstick

We all want our lipstick to last longer, Who wants to be topping up their lipstick throughout the day! 
It's the biggest complaint with lipstick, Imagine topping up your eye makeup throughout the day because it faded completely and you have to start from scratch! You just wouldn't want to wear it!

Luckily there are steps you can take to improve the longevity of your lipstick!

Start with a primer or a lip balm. If you chose a lip balm remove excess oils with blotting paper or a tissue before starting.
Lip balm: http://www.glossybox.co.uk/original-nipple-balm-for-lips

Define the lip shape with a lip liner and then fill in the rest of the lips. Lip liners are waxy and dryer so they last longer on the lips. If you are using a creamy lip liner blot again with paper or tissue.
Lip liner: Rimmel Red Diva

Apply the first layer of lipstick. I would suggest using a lip brush for a sharper cleaner finish.
Lipstick: Rimmel Kate Moss Collection 01
Lip Brush: L29 Lip Brush/Winged Eyeliner Brush http://www.blankcanvascosmetics.com/products/l29-lip-winged-eyeliner-brush.html

Blot the lips with blotting paper. I prefer using blotting paper then just tissue or the back of your hand because blotting paper only absorbs oils and shouldn't remove as much pigment as tissue.
Blotting Paper: Boots

The more pigment on the lips the longer it will last.

Apply the second coat of lipstick. You really want to use a lip brush here to make sure you stay within the shape you have already outlined.

For an option extra step use a product called Lipcote. It seals in the lipstick helping it to last longer.
Lipcote: http://www.glossybox.co.uk/lipcote-lipsticksealer

Sharpen the edges of the lips with a flat concealer brush.
Concealer Brush: F17 Pointed Tip Camouflage brush

Tightlining and Waterline Technique

Tightlining and Waterline Technique

What is Tightlining:

Tightlining the eyes is also know as Invisible Liner, It's push black shadow or pencil in-between the lashes. Not on the water line but in-between the lashes themselves.  

Waterlining or lining your waterline is lining the "wet tissue" of the eyes or the inner rim of the eyes. It can be done with pencil, shadow (applied damp) or cream eyeliner but avoid liquid liner!!

Start on the outer edge and work inwards, Depending on how close-set or wide-set your eyes are will determines how far you work to the inner eye. 
If your eyes are close-set you will want to stop short after the middle. 
If wide-set bring all the way inwards and start slight inwards from the outer edge. 

If you're not sure what eye shape you are check out this video:
