Liner & Statement Lips

Hey girls! Hope you all had a great week. I've been away from my blog yet again.. I've been working full time hours in work this week so it was impossible to try squeeze at least one post in between the crazy hours I have been working.. But it will be all well worth it come pay day cha chingggg. I haven't had the best week unfortunately I have had my ups and downs and thank god for my day off today I'm feeling much better and ready to start over. There are so many posts I use to update you all on which I haven't really been doing lately so I'm going to start back into my blog routine with a Makeup Tutorial post. It has been so so long since I've done one of these. Most of my makeup posts are day time looks so I'm going to be focusing on some night time makeup. So keep checking out my blog for some tips and tricks on achieving the looks I will be showing you!

Statement lips are big this Autum/Winter so I encourage you all to give it a go. This is my favourite look. I always opt for a brown/black smokey eye heading out on the town but I've always wanted to try something different. At the moment Deep Berry colours are the statement lips this season as I'm sure you are all aware.. but I have a much love for my Deep purple lipstick from MAC. I bought this a few months back. If you want to know how to acheive this look keep on reading!

I'm Qualifed!

*Sneak peek from my photo shoot!

Hey girls, hope everyone is well! I've been away from blogging the past few weeks I had lots of posts planned for my blog but unfortunately things came up, and I got more hours in work. But I can't complain because more money means more makeup! Speaking of makeup and you probably guessed by the title of my post and photo's.. Today I got my results from college and I'm delighted to announce I am now a qualifed makeup artist!
I'm over the moon! I wasn't expecting to be getting the results today until a class mate told me she got her results. For about an hour I was refreshing my mails waiting to get that dreaded mail. It was very nerve wrecking! Incase your a new follower I'll fill you in.. 

I studied Professional Makeup Artistry in Vanity X Academy. The course was 14 weeks and it was two nights a week from 7-9.30. I did it along with my sister, who also passed! Woohoo! Anyway, the course included day time, evening, era's, glamour, male, mature, introduction to special affects makeup. I have a huge passion for makeup I've always had an interest in and I was hooked into watching YouTube channels like pixiwoo, SWalkerMakeup, Kandee Johnson and many more. I had some knowledge going into the class but there was a few things that I wanted to learn about more like filling and shaping eyebrows, how to contour properly and the worse of all gel liner! 

It's amazing looking back on the work I've done throughout the course and seeing how much I improved. I had a few different tutors throughout the course, which had it's ups and downs but it was great to see how different makeup artists work and get new tips and tricks. It was the best decision I made doing this course, it also helped my confidence big time. I'm a very shy person and bit ashamed to admit I haven't got great confidence in myself! But this course has helped me so much interacting, making new friends, the makeup industry is a whole different world! At the moment I'm going to stick working away with H&M and start doing freelance makeup and getting in touch with photographers to build up my port folio. I'm hoping to do some work experience as well to help me build my confidence and it's something I can put down onto my C.V

If your have a big passion for makeup like myself go and do a course! It's a qualification and it's something you can always fall back on in times like today. If you just want to do makeup for yourself I wouldn't recommend doing a part time course, definitely go to a qualifed makeup artist. You'll pay so much money for a course and you'll end up dropping out. Rememeber these courses your being graded throughout classes, written exams, homework, everything! A lot of time and effort goes into the course and because it was only 14 weeks it feels like one minute you have no homework and the next you've tonnes to catch up on! Unfortunately, my graduation isn't til the start of November, that will be when I get my Diploma! But in the meantime I'm going to concentrate on makeup looks!

New Look - Boots

I was s on a roll last week blogging to my hearts content! Unfortunately towards the weekend I became sick which ruined my whole weekend. This week I've been up to my eyes in work I've gotten loads of hours which I'm not complaining about. But its been a bit of a mental week so far compared to last week. During the week myself and my siser booked a workshop for next Sunday, it's all about the eyes. I'm so so excited to do it, refresh my memory and learn some new tips and tricks! I love seeing what makeup is in other makeup artists kits too. Anyway, that's what I have up to lately due to my lack of blogging sorry girls! But I do have some posts lined up so be sure to keep checking my blog! Onto the boots..

I am super excited to wear Autumn/Winter clothes.. especially shopping! Theres just something about Winter clothes shopping I love! I was in absolute need of a nice pair of ankle boots. Something I could wear casually during the day not looking too done up and something I could wear for casual drinks in the pub! Yes, I love a few drinks and I don't always like dressing up everytime I head to the pub.. Theses were perfect for what I needed. I love the height of the heel, it's not too small and it's nice too high. The buckles and cut out part are my fave part they make the boots look more 'dressy'
They only cost €29.99 which is a great price for such good quality boots. I can see myself wearing these a lot during the Autumn/Winter months. 

Unfortunately I'm working all weekend.. all lates too! But I suppose it's a good way to save my money because I've lots of things coming up the next few months, birthdays, Christmas and I'm hoping to do a few photo shoots for my portfolio! And I'm going to a Beauty show! I've never been to it before so I'm really looking forward to it and I want to do lots of saving, I'm planning to get myself a new makeup kit and few other bits. Sooo excited. 

Have you started A/W shopping yet?
