Kim Kardashian channelling Diana Ross

Whether you like or dislike Kim one thing you gotta love is her makeup.

If you go on YouTube she must have the most celeb inspired make up tutorials out there, her makeup style and face is gorgeous.

Kim posted some pics from her latest shoot with music video director Hype Williams.

She's channelling the one and only Diana Ross and big hair suits her.

The amazing make up artist that is Joyce Bonelli hooked up her face and she does such a great job. Joyce is the one that made me interested in Ben Nye products and I'm guessing she's used a lot of his products to create such a high impact look.

Nice 1 Kim!

Lady Gaga on Vogue september 2012 issue

Vogue has released the most anticipated magazine cover and who else can it be,  the multi-platinum singer that is Lady Gaga.
The September 2012 issue celebrates the magazines 120th anniversary and has increased its pages for this issue to over 900.

This is the second time Gaga appears on the cover of Vogue, draped in a lovely gown made by Marc Jacobs.
It seems that these days Gaga is opting for a less is more look when it comes to makeup as before she looked very black everything was so dark you lost the beauty of her face.

In this issue we see a range of lighter toned colours used on her face and you see the empahsis on her cheekbones, she almost looks quite innocent.

Gwen Stefani on the cover of Harpers Bazaar

Gwen Stefani is the ultimate definition of a rock chick!

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of the September 2012 issue for Harpers Bazaar and doesn't she look fierce, but something's missing, she's not wearing her signature red lipstick. She opted for a subtle pink. 😱

Throughout the issue Gwen wears dresses by Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen, the Row and Versace.

I love the pink lipstick on her it suits her but I doubt that this will be a regular fix for her.

J Lo Going in music video

Look at those lips!!!!
Jennifer Lopez is definately going in. I love how the lips are the main focal point and she kept the makeup quite natural.
The song in itself will eventually grow on me but I absolutely love the colours shes used for the makeup. She looks good for a woman who's in her 40's Wow.

Check out some other images from the video.

Blake Lively for Gucci

Blake Lively looks absolutely gorgeous in the new Gucci perfume advert.

I'm even tempted to go and buy the fragrance just because of her.

The look was a sensual 1940's look, where she had silky brushed out waves with flawless looking skin.

The makeup looked divine highlighting her face structure with subtle golden colour.

Stila cosmetics

Hey guys
So today I popped into my local pound land and I found some treats.

Stila cosmetics and yes only for £1.
I grabbed a few things , the tinted moisturiser which is ideal for the summer as its got great SPF and can be used instead of foundation.
I also got the whitening powder refill which is great for blotting oil and setting the makeup.

So guys head into your local pound land .
I would say these products are food for Caucasian skin tones but still an absolute bargain.

Test shoot with Ashley Cameron

I had such fun today test shooting with Ashley Cameron he's such an amazing photographer.
I was working on the lovely Alice from BMA models.
We did a range of looks starting from sporty to a more seductive smokey eye.
Ashley was so fun he ordered sodium nitrate or something scientific anyway which looked like ice and when you added hot water smoke started to appear. The effects looked crazy.

But yeah it was a lovely experience
The final images are gonna look fantastic.

Make up for Style Revo TV

A few weeks ago my friend aked me for my services of makeup for a project called Style Revo TV, where celebrity stylist Alexis Knox was a feature host for the episode.

The theme of this shoot was festival fashion so the makeup look was really fresh faced with a splash of colour for the eyes.
I had such a fun day working with such an amazing group of people and it made me realise how much I missed doing make up and being in that environment.
Being around creative people is really inspiring and pushed me to explore more make-up avenues.

So in the next coming months, I should be posting up more of my work.
I hope you like it .

MAC mineralize skin finish- fantastic

This is the best product MAC created!!
I love the way it gives such a good glow to skin, but yet leaves a natural matte finish on the face.
Fantastic for just touching up throughout the day.
I occasionally use it as an eye shadow maybe as a base or sometimes just for a subtle eye colour.
This product comes in 8 different shades, the one I currently use is Deep Dark which works on my skin perfectly.
If you havent tried this product yet I definately suggest you try it.
It's a beauty must have.

All things Drag

Drag Queen make up is my personal favourite , I just love the way how they can just change the dynamics of their face so dramatically. The results are so amazing that they can even look better (well at times) than real women. Drag makeup is the best way to learn how to contour and highlight the face.
My favourite Drag Diva has got to be without a shadow of a doubt Ru Paul (isn't she amazing) her makeup looks flawless and she oozes confidence. I wish they would bring the new seasons of RuPauls Drag Race back to England but I guess I 'll just have to keep up online.

RuPaul is 100% diva and I love it
I salute you!!!

I wish I was a rapper.....

"What is this .....Maybach Music...I like this Maybach Music....Sweet"

I wish I was a rapper and if I was I would love to be the first lady of Maybach music. I don't know what it is about Ricky Rozay but his style and persona is 100% on point.
This music collective are coming hard right now and have got a lot of club hits for the summer. I beleive one day I will have the pleasure of meeting them all .
I'm loving everyone on the team, even though I'm still a bit shocked that Rozay signed Omarion but I hope that he delivers because this is far from that primary school flex that he was doing with B2K like come on these are grown men, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Rick Ross looks better than Usher in this video LOL

"theres a lot of bad bitches in the building ...AMEN"

My first ever blog post!!
I'm quite excited actually, as I've been wanting to do one for ages.
I love all things with studs,glitter, shiny and evrything make up orientated. I dont actually have a clue what to write but  I'll see how it goes.
Wish me luck and I hope you enjoy XoXo
