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...

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...

Lady is a vamp..

Read on to find out more about our vamp aubergine and burgundy A/W 2016 look.. On the same day, we were lucky enough to have two amazing sisters with us for make up tutorials. Alice and I thought it would be amazing to do two slightly similar looks with different tones to show different colouring options that suit red hair. Fiona in our previous tutorial had a warm smokey eye with a combination of warm browns & a plum lip. For Nicola's make up in this tutorial, Alice decided to go for more purple tones. A deep aubergine purple smokey eye to compliment Nicola's beautiful red hair. We were so excited about these looks on Fiona & Nicola. As redheads ourselves we have always struggled to...

Autumn winter look for redheads..

Red hair is trending now. We can see why, it is so vibrant & it stands out the most out of all the hair colours. Fiona & her younger sister Nicola are two red haired models in Scotland (www.coloursagency.com) who are trending in the fashion industry & she shows us how effortless being a beautiful redhead can be. Anyone can wear these looks of course, we aren't biased, but we want to specifically focus on products which are good for pale skin and ginger hair colouring. Alice looked at foundation colours and concealers along with what colours and shades work well with ginger hair. We LOVE red hair at the beauty brief - being redheads ourselves we may be biased, but we are looking forward to many...

Blueberry Muffins – Dairy free

Dairy free Blueberry Muffins was one of my baking goals over the last few months. I love blueberry muffins and I didn't want to live without them, so I made my own dairy free version. This is the first time I have filmed me baking something, but I have been baking lots that I haven't even photographed for the blog so I need to start documenting more often what I am up to! So you can get all the instructions in my video but I will give you a list of ingredients and instructions on here also. I use Ground golden flax seeds to make flax eggs, which I ordered from www.healthysupplies.co.uk. This is super easy to make each egg is 1 tablespoon...

Alice and I got shown some super pony & other hairstyles by the amazing Lee Ting Chung. We loved this braided pony which is suitable for being dressy or casual. Braids are making a huge comeback at the moment and we can see why, this style is simple, quick but incredibly cute. I can't wait to try wearing it out. This super quick tutorial shows you how Lee got the look but here is a step by step list of instructions too!   Begin with wavy hair or by waving your hair. I did this before Lee started by using a conical wand by babyliss Separate the section of hair you are going to braid & if you have a fringe you want to leave at...

Chocolate orange dairy free cheesecake…

This is a great recipe for anyone on a plant based, vegan or dairy free diet who fancies a sweet cheesecake treat. This is a little unhealthy because it does contain refined sugar, I couldn't resist sharing this though because it is super tasty. I have had silken tofu in the cupboard for ages & I honestly had no idea what to use it for. I had tried using it for something in the past and it turned out awful. So when I discovered I could make cheesecake with tofu, I thought rather hesitantly that I better give it a go, before giving up all hope on silken tofu. (I am happy to report back that this one was a raring success - phew!) So...

Marilyn Monroe Hair tutorial…

Our Marilyn Monroe hair tutorial shows you how to get a Marilyn inspired hairstyle in just 9 steps. We wanted to create a modernised Marilyn, faux bob look. Marilyn's actual hair would have been cut with layers very specific to the iconic style that she always wore. So we wanted our modern Marilyn look to have the same vibe. Fabulous volume and elegance, but without having to get your hair cut into all sorts of crazy layers.   See Lee's instructions below for the 9 step guide to our Marilyn inspired style. 1) hair is parted into a deep side part 2) hair is curled using a 1" curling tong horizontally. 3) using your fingers wrap the hair and clip and leave to cool. (Be careful not...
