HEATLESS VOLUMINOUS CURLS

If you’re not a fan of using heat & tools on your locks then this is the tutorial for you! Whether you have thin, limp hair or wild and unruly curls that need taming, this style is for everyone! It lifts and creates volume in fine hair, while helping to tame and smooth the cuticle in thick coarse hair.

This simple to achieve hairstyle is my go-to on holidays (and at home now it’s Summer here in the UK) I wear it braided throughout the daytime to keep the hair off my face and in the evening I take it out and wear it big and curly!

EASY SLEEP-IN BEACHY WAVES

A couple of weeks ago I uploaded a photo of my beachy waves on my Instagram account and was inundated with requests for the ‘how-to’. 

It’s so simple and can be completely heat-less if you forgo using the hairdryer and opt for airdrying instead. To see how to achieve these gorgeous, voluminous waves overnight, watch the video!

AFFORDABLE JEWELLED FESTIVAL MAKEUP TUTORIAL

If you are off to a festival, carnival or fiesta this year why not amp-up your makeup look by adding some jewels, glitter and some White faux freckles! 

It’s very on-trend to sport chunky glitter on your face and in your hair at the festivals, and this has led to many brands, such as Gypsy Shrine, to create pre-made jewelled designs on acetate sheets ready for instant application.

This week NikkieTutorials came up with the latest YouTube makeup challenge; Google Picks My Makeup! This entails inputting your first and second initial into the Google search bar followed by the word ‘look’, whatever the first picture is in under the ‘images’ section is your inspiration for your makeup look.

A MAKEUP ARTIST’S MAKEUP COLLECTION 

Not all makeup artists have an excessive makeup collection, but they do have more than your average. Mine has grown and grown over the years, more so since creating tutorials on YouTube. 

Thanks to many generous brands I’ve been able to sample products before their release and share my thoughts and opinions with you guys! That has led to my ever-growing repertoire of makeup! 

Since I filmed my room tour I have had many requests to film a makeup collection, so here is part one of what is hiding in my makeup drawers. Part two will be up tomorrow, featuring my SFX kit and my pro makeup kit that I take out on jobs with me.
