Eyebrow transplant & cut crease tutorial

Full eyebrows are the craze at the moment, but we can't all achieve this naturally and for some of us we over tweezed and ruined our natural brows. There are so many options on the market now for getting a fuller brow look, including eyebrow make up (thank you brow god Anastasia), tattoos, micro blading and now best of all of them an eyebrow transplant. Beautiful Aussie/Italian Antonella had recently had this eyebrow transplant and then decided to start working for the company between their Scottish clinic and more recent Milan clinic, we had to try and catch up with her to find out all the details about her treatment. Vinci says: "People don't realise how much effect eyebrows have on facial features until they...

Angelina Jolie Makeup look

Our look today is inspired by one of Hollywoods most iconic and beautiful woman Angelina Jolie. Angelina has a very unique look, her lips are almost as famous as her. Angelina, once bullied and teased about the size of her lips, turned this into her defining feature. She keeps her make up looking natural and she is hardly ever seen without her eyeliner and mascara. Angelina has her make up mostly focused on her eyes and keeps her eyeshadows neutral & similar to her skin tone. Her eyeliner is always done in a 'cat eye' shape to enhance her eye shape further. As her eyes are round, this elongates them to make them appear wider too. On her lips Angelina's make up artist...

Vintage Vamp

This beautiful Vintage Vamp look using the make up brand taking the UK by storm Charlotte Tilbury. Charlotte Tilbury's make up isn't only great quality, beautiful packaging and in huge demand. It is also unique in the way the brand markets itself. When you go into the shop Charlottes make up is arranged into looks. So instead of the usual foundations, mascaras, lipstick each look has products for every part of your face. As a visual person I loved this store instantly, despite having never tried the products because instead of seeing individual products I could see a full look. It is like having a stylist for your face! So my first purchases in Charlotte Tilbury were the 'Vintage Vamp' eyeshadow palette...

Body Confidence

So we have been working on a great project called 'I am Curve' Started by Mo who is with us for this interview which sums up some of the ideas behind the project. Mo has already been on STV, BBC radio & in the papers talking about her project. Myself and Alice were really keen to be involved in something which helps promote body positivity & realistic body goals for women. For years I have worked with everyone from different backgrounds, ages, weight & everyone has the same thing in common. Women obsess over their bodies. I can't remember one person who I have photographed without something they are desperate to hide or want removed on photoshop. There is no money to...

Grunge makeup Tutorial with Mo

Although grunge style is synonymous with the '90s, it is still a look that can be translated into every day life.  90’s makeup is back and is more wearable now than ever. Who couldn’t love the 90’s, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss were still a couple. Drew Barrymore was killing the whole fashion thing and Courtney Love was rocking the smudged, I just rolled (literally) out of bed look.   Women like Helena Bonham Carter and the Olsen twins carry a certain mystique about them. They are dark, mysterious and yet beautiful at the same time. Forget about perfect flicks, original grunge is where its at. We thought we’d do a quick grunge inspired makeup look for you on our beautiful model Mo. Watch...

Mad Max 5 Wives

In the movie Mad Max the character Immortan Joe has five wives whom he has hand picked for breeding.  The women are beautiful with no mutations and are considered princesses of the post apocalyptic world that they now live in. We decided to re create one of the five wives named 'The Dag'.  Similar to our Khaleesi look this character is quite easy to do.  If you have a few halloween parties this year and don't have time to put together another elaborate outfit then this one is perfect for you.   All you need to do is recycle your khaleesi wig and buy some cheese cloth. For the wig all we did was remove the braids and positions strands of hair...

Khaleesi Makeup Tutorial

Here at the Beauty Brief we are a little bit obsessed with Game of Thrones and decided it was about time we jumped on the bandwagon to create our very own Khaleesi (Daenery's Targaryen) inspired makeup look. With her glowing radiant skin and her long ice white hair, Deanery's Targaryen has become somewhat of a beauty icon. This is a really quick and easy makeup look to recreate as so far Khaleesi's makeup doesn't change much throughout the seasons and remains soft and natural.  If you decide to wear the Dothraki outfit then just dirty the makeup up a little.
