French Manicure Nail Tutorial

In this video I show you how to create a classic french manicure, I love french manicures there is honestly something so famine and beautiful about them, plus they are a classic which has been around for years. I have always struggled to achieve a french manicure but I find using the dotting tool is handy. What I didn't say in this video is that you can always use the dotting tool first and then paint white over the dotted area a few times if your dotting turns lumpy.

Hope you enjoyed this video, more on the way.

How to Clean makeup brushes

In this video I show you a simple and effective way to clean your makeup brushes, this way of cleaning your makeup brushes will not only get rid of any makeup residue it will also disinfect them and treat the hairs on the makeup brush making your brushes last longer.
I use this technique on all my makeup brushes, it works really well, plus I like the fact that im not applying any bad chemicals to my makeup brushes which could get on my skin. I find when I clean my brushes this way I dont break out as much and makeup becomes easier to apply. The great thing about this technique is its using household products which pretty much any household has, so its not going to break your budget or make you go out of your way.

Hope you enjoyed this video, more on the way.

Pink Dotty Nail Tutorial

This tutorial was partly inspired by one of my childhood memories which I share with other girls all around the world, Barbie. This nail design is super girly and really easy to achieve. The hardest part is finding the patience and time for your nails to dry.
I love this nail look as it uses a lot of glitter and pink, great for any season! If you want you could always change the colours and mix it up a little to create your own take on this look.
Whatever you do have fun and enjoy!

Collective Haul

In this Collective Haul Video I show you what I have brought over 2 - 3 months,  If your like me its always so exciting to get mail and packages delivered. My birthday was in september so I had some birthday money to spend so I got shopping.
 Probably my favourite items from this collective haul were ether my Flat top Synthetic Kabuki Brush, OPI I Lilly Love you, NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencils or Redken's Heatglide Heat Protestant. Most of these items I have heard great things about from other youtube gurus and added them to my wish list. However I still recommend all these products as they are all amazing!
I find when buying cosmetics its usually cheaper to look at online stores rather then going to a store. If shipping is cheap or an item has free shipping I am usually more inclined to buy that item,  not sure if anyone else is the same in that way.
At the moment I have been going through this giant stage of buying nail polishes (mainly sparkly ones) and also spending more money on quality hair products as I am trying to grow my hair longer and keep it healthy. The heat protectant that I brought by Redken is honestly amazing, it not only keeps my hair from getting burnt by heating tools ie straighteners and Blowdryers but it leaves my hair looking shiny and healthy not to mention silky. I am a frequent user of CHI's silk infusion hair product, this all started when I had a bad experience with dare I say it "Perms!" Not only was it a terrible perm they over processed my hair leaving it orange and frizzy and practically dead so from that day onwards I look after my hair and started using CHI to add silkiness to my hair.
 Let me know if you are going to or have brought one of the products I mentioned in my collective haul would be great to hear what others have to say about some of the products :).

OOTD November 1st

In this outfit of the day im pairing a keeping it clean and casual, everyone should have a little black dress, you can dress a black dress up or down depending on how you feel. In this video I am wearing some red colour flats. What I love about black dresses and black cloths in particular is that fact you can wear practically any colour with black.

The dress im wearing I brought from Trendz, I love this dress because of variation in length. (the dress is not the same length the whole way round)

Hope you enjoyed this video, more on the way.
