#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD 💋💄

Good Morning Pouter!

As you may or may not know, I love contouring and highlighting. Well, not so much highlighting, but definitely contouring.

I often share photos on our Facebook page showing how I look before and after.

There is one makeup artist and yes only ONE that perfects the whole contouring application. He inspires me with his before and after photos on a daily basis. One can only dream of being as good as he is, when it comes to drawing lines on women’s faces, transforming their “canvases” into works of living and breathing gorgeous art!

He is:

The best part? He doesn’t do the whole less is more nonsense, but only because he knows how to apply the more! Fine line people, fine liquid line!

He is touring the world where people can attend his workshops. So if you’re lucky enough to go…. GO!

A Little Burlesque

A couple of weeks ago I told you about the launch of the MUD Showroom in Claremont, Cape Town and I purchased some gorgeous new additions for my face. Well, following this I just had to play and I added a little bit of a razzle dazzle with some of MUD lipstick in Burlesque on my lips.

MUD Burlesque

This lipstick is absolutely to die for! It is a matte deep red cherry colour which is highly pigmented. Due to the fact that the lipstick is matte, is has a long staying power and regular touch ups are not necessary.

Even while eating and drinking the colour stays prominent on the lips without fading or wiping off easily. Obviously there are a few lip stick stains on a glass or if you have just applied your lippie then you might smudge it if you go and kiss your beau, but that being said once a couple of hours rolls round you sort of feel that you should maybe check your lips only to be surprised and find out that they are still the same colour as when you left the house which is a total bonus.

I would rate the MUD lipstick range with a better staying power than MAC lipstick, the lipsticks are not as creamy in texture in comparison but they are still moisturising and incredibly effective to rock a bold or natural lip for any occasion.

The lipsticks retail for R210 and are available from MUD South Africa distributors and stockists nationwide, for the nearest to you have a look on their website here.

Makeup Inspiration : Office Chic

Although a lot of people are starting to wind down now for the end of the year which is only a couple of weeks away, unfortunately when life tells you that you have to work, you work it, baby! Working in an office and getting ready in the morning can be a little tricky. You don’t want to look like you’re all dolled up and ready hit the town but you also do want to look like you’ve made an effort, shall we say their is such a thing as office chic? Most definitely! If you’re a bit a stuck at how to do your face in the morning the beauty editorial in Unica for October 2013 featured Alexandra from MRA Models with several easily adaptable looks which scream Office Chic, exactly as the editor, Georgiana Constantin aptly named the set. Images were photographed by Alex Ranta and the makeup was by Silviana Buturuga, hair by Petre Tache and nails by Lacramiora Enache.

Candice Swanepoel Channels Her Inner Oriental Brunette for Blumarine Campaign

Hi Pouters!blumarine11

Eastern Culture has always attracted attention because of its luxurious charm and irresistible appeal. Think velvet, and silk with rich embellishment and embroidery – sounds like something royal, something beautiful, doesn’t it?

These things and even more were borrowed from the Eastern civilizations. No wonder, if in a past life I happened to live in medieval Europe with its overwhelming poverty, I would crave a nice outfit to stand out. You would too. Can you imagine what it feels like to look just like everyone else in a boring floor length linen gown? Although it is different in our time, and you don’t have to travel a million miles over the ocean in a boat for a couple of weeks to get your paws on a fashionable piece, western designers still to this day look for inspiration in the oriental world. A good example of this recently has been Italian brand, Blumarine, who has proved it with its dark enchanting Fall 2013 campaign.

blumarine10This campaign is an international wonder, our very own home grown South African model, along with a Swedish photographer and Italian designer came together to create the magical looks of a Blumarine woman.

Candice sporting dark brunette hair, matte red lips create an image of femme fatale which, is alluring! Her true beauty will always look stunning regardless of the hair colour. The Blumarine clothing is so edgy it makes it impossible to look away.
