Let me tell you about a foundation I’ve recently fallen in love with…
I have used all sorts of foundations. My favorites are MAKEUP FOREVER, MAC, BB CREAMS and of course INGLOT. My sister recently showed me the KRYOLAN foundation. And all I can say is WOW. The coverage is super amazing and you don’t need a lot of it at all!
I think the best part of it is that it lasts forever. By that I mean the amount you get and how much you will actually use. It’s brilliant.
Here are pictures of my face. Half without any foundation and the other just covered with the foundation. No concealer was used.
After I finished applying the foundation, I then did my contouring and finished off with powder, after which I proceeded with my “face painting”.
I think the coverage is amazing. New favorite for sure.

Hey there gorgeous.
Recently I went to a dear friends wedding. So I thought I would show you show you how I did my makeup.
So many makeup artists say you should have one focal point on your face. And generally they’re right. But there is one look where you could pull off strong eyes and strong lips. And that’s when using Red lips.
This is how I do it…
First, it’s all about contouring and highlighting and of course blending it all properly.
Then I add a shimmery highlighting eyeshadow in the corner of my inner eyes and on the brow bone. After that I apply black eyeliner and set it with black eyeshadow on my lower lash line.
I then added a darker shade of eyeshadow on my outer eyelid and blending it to the crease. Giving it a slightly smokey effect. After which I add eyeliner with a tapered brush and an eyeliner paint pot. Of course I shape my brows. Brows are the frame of the face, the face is the picture. So I always shape my brows. As thick, as thin as I want.
I then finished off with falsies and the famous Rubywoo MAC red lipstick!!!
In a nutshell, I used KRYOLAN foundations, INGLOT eyeshadows and of course Rubywoo lipstick.
I love wearing this look when going out. It’s strong, yet feminine. 💋
Have a fabYOUlous day!!!

So, I just heard about about Lady Gaga’s new website she is launching in competition with Twitter.
She is the first celebrity to reach 18 000 followers on Twitter and has decided to create her own version of a networking site devoted entirely to her fans.
I love the audacity in my mind her thought was something like this…
HEY TWITTER THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME GET SO FAMOUS ON YOUR STUPID SITE, BUT MINE WILL BE BETTER SO SUCK ON MY BALLS.
Maybe she will write a song about it and sing it like this?
The idea of networking millions of people together to idolize and chat about a single individual seems a little digital cult-like in my opinion.
Will you be joining littlemonsters.com?
If you are, I wont be seeing you there!
Hello stunning Pouters!
So I had to do 5 makeup case studies this month. Day makeup, evening makeup, bridal makeup and special occasion makeup. The final case study I could choose any one again.
Thought I’d show you here on Pout Perfection a few before and after photos.
This makeup included corrective techniques which included highlighting and shading.
First look is Tanya’s EVENING Makeup. (One of my best friends)
After with a dark application of eyeshadow.
A lighter application of eyeshadow (this was before I did the darker application of makeup shown above.)
Arlene’s SPECIAL OCCASION Makeup for a night out in the town. (Tanya’s cousin)
After with darker lips and eyes
A frosty lighter look.
Jenie’s very NATURAL DAY Look. (My cousin)
Natalie’s BRIDAL Makeup. (My sister has been married for over 17 years and is also a makeup artista F.Y.I)
Tavita’s DAY LOOK FOR TEENS (My niece, Natalie’s daughter)
Before (Poor Tavita had a fever, thanks again for doing this while you didn’t feel well)
So those were my 5 case studies. It was an absolute blast. I cannot wait to whip out the brushes and makeup and go for the next lot. Any takers? 🙂
