Soft Glam Makeup Look

I have finally plucked up the courage to bare all for my very first makeup tutorial, freckles and all.  This is a look that I have been wearing a lot recently and would describe it as a soft glam look.  Just the right amount of glam for anyone not wanting to go too full on.  If you would like to see how I created this look then check out my video. I'll link all the products used below.     Foundation http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_123076000499_-1 Concealer http://www.spacenk.com/uk/en_GB/brands/n/nars/radiant-creamy-concealer-MUS300023892.html Brows https://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/anastasia-beverly-hills-brow-wiz.html Eyes http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/product/13840/1573/Products/Makeup/Eyes/Shadow/Pro-Longwear-Paint-Pot#/shade/Painterly http://www.spacenk.com/uk/en_GB/brands/l/laura-mercier/baked-eyeshadow-MUK200006873.html http://www.feelunique.com/p/Rimmel-Volume-Flash-X10-Mascara-22g?option=32063&gclid=Cj0KEQjw6am-BRCTk4WZhLfd4-oBEiQA3ydA3qLnqFA8W9Bhn0NjxRTZpFzlN3pR1fMphNgxDZPOEPMaAucY8P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds Liner http://www.boots.com/en/Rimmel-Scandaleyes-Waterproof-Gel-Liner_1450812/ Face http://www.marksandspencer.com/bronzer-bronzed-beauty/p/p22445339?image=SD_07_T22_5235_VK_X_EC_0&color=BRONZEDBEAUTY&prevPage=plp http://www.soapandglory.com/makeup/face/blusher-bronzer/peach-partytm https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/uk/en-gb/product/watts-up-cream-highlighter Lips http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/product/13852/340/Products/Makeup/Lips/Lip-Pencil/Lip-Pencil#/shade/Plum http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/product/13854/310/Products/Makeup/Lips/Lipstick/Lipstick#/shade/Twig   Alice xox    ...

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.

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.

Top 5 tips for dewy skin

J-11

Before we jump into our Dewy skin tips, you should always think about how you are treating your skin. To get the healthy, glory & dewy skin, it also needs to come from within.
