My course at AOFM........

Hi everyone, haven't posted for a while as I have been on a great course at the Academy of Film and Makeup in London. I decided a while a go that I wanted to pursue a career in make up and now I have the time to concentrate on it, I decided to go and get some formal training.

I cannot praise this course and the Academy enough, it was a brilliant week spent learning so much about make up right from basics through to advice on careers in bridal/tv/film/catwalk etc......

Jana and his team are really friendly and each day we were trained by a professional makeup artist who specialised in a specific filed of make up. This is so much better than just one teacher, as you get to learn so much more , and pick up loads of tips and hints. The course is mainly practical which is great, and we got to create different make up looks on each other every day.

One of the reasons I wanted to do this course was to see I suppose, if my heart was really in wanting to pursue make up as a career, and I can definitely now say it's 100% full speed ahead! I want to concentrate on Bridal makeup and am going to get a website going soon.

Will post some pics from the course soon , but I can definitely recommend this to anyone who is thinking of pursuing a career as a make up artist....xx

My Lip Favourites.... a return of Lipstick!!

Hi everyone, sorry it's been a while since my last post, but I feel with this blog I never want to just post random stuff just so I can post every day, It was never about that when I started this and it never will be!!!..Anyway on to the important stuff.....:)

I have always been a Lip gloss lover, I have far far to many..... Over the past couple of years I have probably worn Lip gloss daily and have only turned to Lipstick when I wanted a red shade, but that has all changed recently, mainly I must say due to watching lots of great videos from Lisa Eldridge I decided to invest in a few more Lipsticks and have to say I have a few favourites that I wear every week, and thought I would share them with you.....

So from left to right MAC Vegas Volt.......MAC Dressmaker........MAC Jist.......Rimmel Coral......Maybelline Ambre Rose.

Vegas Volt and Jist have definitely become summer favourites and I wear them regularly, the Rimmel Coral is really easy to wear if you don't want an intense Coral, and Ambre Rose is a good go to every day nude. I don't tend to wear lip liner I prefer a more casual lip look and often just pat the colour on with my finger.

So whats your favourite summer Lipsticks...?..x
