So as some of you may know I’ve been harping on about wanting to learn to contour the face with make up for ages, we loved our make up at our recent shoot with top celebrity make up artist Jodie Hyams, so we asked her round for a cup of tea and to show us how…
Contouring and shading highlights and defines your natural features, making the best of what your Mamma gave ya, giving the illusion that bigger noses are smaller and turning chubby cheeks into razor sharp model cheek bones.
Step 1 – start by prepping the skin – cleanse, tone, moisturise, we used products from CAUDALIE in particular our fave the Beauty Elixir.
Step 2 – We then used a primer to prep the foundation to last longer throughout the day, and also leaves a beautiful velvet finish – SMASHBOX photo finish foundation primer.
Step 3 – Next step we used a SPACE NK foundation brush to apply KEVYN AUCOIN liquid airbrush foundation and put concealer on any red marks or blemishes
Step 4 – Now for the cream highlighter, we used ‘JEMMA KIDD dewy glow all over radiance cream as a ‘C’ around eye, from top of cheekbone to under the brow, down the middle of face from fore head, down the centre of nose, cupids bow and chin. Blend it in with foundation. Optional – add some cream blusher at this stage to make it last longer.
Step 5 – Lightly powder the face with a translucent powder to set it, Jodie used SMASHBOX photo set finishing powder. She then used KEVYN AUCOIN sculpting powder’ to start the shading. We lightly blended it under the cheek bone, jawline and down the sides of the nose (this may vary depending on your face shape).
Step 6 – Finish off with a blusher on the apples of the cheeks, we used the fruity MAC Dolly mix for this. VOILA! Quick pout and your done!

I have honestly not had this colour off my lips this summer and I plan to take this bold trend right into Autumn too, MAC do the best matte, long lasting lipstick and getting sick of red, I fell in love with this Morange shade instantly. It looks a bit bright and daunting at first but go for it, it suits everyone!

I absolutely swear by ‘MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation’ Alana and I have used it for years but it wasn’t until my friend started wearing it recently and was met by a ‘WOW what foundation are you wearing your skin looks great!’ That ‘s when I realised just how amazing it actually is……on everyone!
The reason most people like it, is because it gives such good coverage making your skin look flawless, but without making you look like you’ve got too much make up on. This is due to the foundation being available in so many different shades, ‘MAC’ also offer a free colour match in store to find the perfect colour for your skin tone. The only negative comment I have heard about this is that its ‘too thick’ especially in the summer but I have 2 solutions for this, always use a foundation brush for a smooth even finish or mix with some moisturiser for a more natural look. It is great for the summer however, as it is SPF 15 and is also oil free – keeping those pimples at bay!
Team this up with the Studio Fix concealer and powder and you have the perfect matte finish with a face that looks significantly airbrushed. My favourite make up brand by a long shot – and not just because of the name…. LOVE LOVE LOVE MAC!

Having white eyelashes, mascara is a ‘ Mac essential’
When loreal discontinued the mascara I had used for years, I wanted to shed a small tiny tear, after exhausting all bulk supplies from ebay it was time to move onto a new more accessible product, convinced I wouldn’t find one as good never mind better - I was wrong!
Lancome’s Hypnose Drama defines and lengthens the lashes but also gives the ‘clumpy’ ‘spidery’ look that I like on my eyelashes!
To see the results zoom into some of our recent photos! No need for false lashes with this little beauty in your make up bag! x
