August Favourites

Clare and I finally filmed an August favourites for you all. It's been a while since we have sat down together so it was nice to find out what we've both been loving this month. So the final month of summer has said goodbye for another year *sad face*.  Liberty's Christmas shop is now open for business *shocked face* and Autumn has officially begun.  I feel it is still a bit premature to crack out the Christmas PJ's and whip up a batch of mulled wine but non the less I'm ready to pack away my sandals.  After all we are in Scotland, summer doesn't linger for long. Alice Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation http://www.international.boots.com/en/Rimmel-Wake-Me-Up-Concealer_1253837/ This product has been a staple for me this summer...

July Favourites’

Hey guys, so its now the end of July and I thought I would film a quick favourites video.  I still can't believe how much of a wash out it has been again this summer.  Although as I write this the sun has decided to make a brief appearance.  It rains in Scotland 12 months of the year so it's hard to get excited about summer.  However on a positive note I head on holiday soon YAY! So starts the steady flow of purchases and returns to ASOS. If my freckles join up I may even get a bit of colour. Watch this space. Watch my video to see what I have been loving this July and don't forget to follow us...

Get Ready with me

Hey guys, So I thought I would film a very quick 'get ready with me' video.  I tend to try and keep my morning routine as quick as I can.  Generally I'll throw my hair up in a pony tail or if I'm feeling adventurous give my hair a soft wave with my hair tongs. My hair is really soft so doesn't always hold a curl.  Through trial and error I find the best thing for me to use is my GDH tongs and prefer them to straighteners.  My tongs have a clamp on them but I prefer to just wrap my hair around the barrel.  For the most part I curl my hair away from my face with the odd section...

Victoria Secret’s inspired makeup

Now we're not meaning to make you jealous but we had our very own Victoria's Secret lookalike in the studio recently.  We thought Jemma was just perfect fit for this look and had a little bit of an Alessandra Ambrosio look about her. Victoria Secret started working with renowned models in the 1990's and has gone on to feature some amazingly beautiful women Alessandra Ambrosia being one of them.  Ambrosia is a brazilian model and is well known for her work with Victoria Secret and has even walked one show in lingerie made entirely out of candy. Here at The Beauty brief we love a little bit of glam and wanted to show you how to create a look that Alessandra recently wore...

Prom makeup tutorial

It feels like a lifetime ago since I was getting ready to go to prom. I remember the excitement of getting ready, going to the school and seeing everyone all dressed up in their ball gowns, suits and kilts.  I loved prom and would go back to relive it in a second.  We had the lovely model Storm back in the studio recently and as I'm doing Storm's prom makeup we all thought it would be fun to film her trial. Storm had sent us some references for her makeup which is always a great idea when you are having your makeup done for a special occasion.  Makeup can be quite a personal thing and often your client has something specific...

Cindy Crawford 90’s inspired makeup look

Todays makeup look is all about the 90's, more notably Cindy Crawford, a global household name and one of the original 'big six'.  Now in their late 40's early 50's the original supermodels of the 90's still look incredible. Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Claudia Shiffer to name a few are still as relevant today as they were when they dominated the runways, magazines and ad campaigns.  They embody strength, independence and inspire confidence, something more important now than ever. The 90's beauty trends are back in action and even more wearable. For this look we went full blown Cindy, from the sultry smokey eye to the trademark beauty spot, our gorgeous model Rebecca just oozes 90's glamour. For the great supermodel...
