Selected Reason: Wonderful people who deserve to win
I have spent many years building up a portfolio for clients and people to see and I thought I would share it with you wonderful people.

This brush by the Makeup giant Rae Morris is quite spectacular. It’s function is to buff and perfect foundation which is precisely what it does.
I apply my primer and selected foundations to my other foundation brush then I use the radiance brush in a downwards diagonal motion. This brush pushes the product into the skin and removes any sign of your foundation (as long as you get the colour and consistently right)
I am loving this useful, soft brush and for professional use it really does the job you need to ensure your foundation is perfectly finished skin.. That’s right it helps the products look just like skin though fabulous in effect.
This brush is pricey though I don’t think I could now live without it in my kit. Retail $110
As a makeup artist not using brushes is a little freaky to me. Iv tried using my fingers to apply my foundation and even beauty sponge blenders but its hard work and my makeup doesn’t seem to last as long and I love a flawless finish..
I have to let you girls know about these brushes because when we need to purchase brushes for home or for even for work there are just so many things we are looking for. When you just want to get a few good brushes for home the choices are a little blah to be honest!
Some of the ones iv seen there ok though but there still around $20 each. Most companies offer brushes separately and I tell you that becomes really expensive. I have spent $68 alone on one brush which is just nuts (though needed for work and used for each job so justified..)
The brushes I’m reviewing are Arbonne here are a Swiss company though you can purchase here in Australia so don’t stress and they are 100% synthetic and absolute genius. They tick the boxes for me, which are how well they blend, softness, strength, being economical, product pick up and minimal product waste so girls with these brushes girls im ticking..
When you are working in the trade there are additional brushes you will need of course but most of your kit is here.
I use these brushes at home though I also take these to work with me every day. I have only changed my brushes twice in 5 years and that was just because I felt like doing so. The hairs don’t fall out and the glue is considerably strong.
Below is the large size which is perfect for most things like powders, blush, contouring, larger eye brushes, brows and a lip brush.
This 10 piece brush set is only $50 which is so incredibly cheap for professional quality brushes. I have had mine for a long time and they withstand stand weekly or twice weekly cleaning.
The travel size brush set (below) I love for the eye brushes their smaller than the larger one. When you’re looking for eye brushes look for brushes that have a flatter tip so you can get into the corners though you can apply while shading both ways.
If you use these brushes I’d love your thoughts, how do you find them?
If you want to purchase let me know I have a contact who can get your brushes out to you in a few days.
Hope you enjoy your week lovelies xx
My Rae Morris brushes have just arrived, the selected few I purchased (for now anyway! We’ll see how they go with the finish product)
They look amazing and well presented. Each brush was individually sealed and the radiance brush was sent in a Rae Morris signature box.
I am excited to use them. They are super soft as mentioned on Rae’s website and I read a few great reviews from artists I scrolled though before purchasing, as you do!. I will post again when I use for the first time and may even do my first tutorial if I ever get around to doing one??
The brushes are quite small though I purchased the brushes I needed to smooth product around the eyes.
My negative comment is trying to choose which ones you want online. It was a little hard to choose in the separate brush section. There are brush packages though they are pricy and some have brushes you do and don’t need. I would love to be able to create my own package and receive a discount for the number of brushes purchased.
The four brushes cost my makeup budget approximately $260-$300
The brush I am looking forward to using from the Rae Morris range is the Radiance brush which I am hoping to use to apply and finish off my foundation perfectly.
Ill keep you up to date X
Ok, I bleached my hair blonde recently and I love it especially as my skin tone is white with pasty blue undertones.. I am a big fan of fashion pics and I also love the pictures of models with blonde or really light brows.
I did a little research about different bleachers and after a little miss information from a salon I used a 20v peroxide and a developer.
I was freaking out just a little so I first did the test patch and then left it on for about two minutes and washed off…Just in case I went very light especially as my hair bleaches very quick!
My eye brows are stubborn so I ended up leaving it on both for about 20 or so minutes and the result was pretty good… There no where near blonde though they are a few shades lighter and softer. I really like it
Do you know how to get that lovely blonde colour without the warmth as I throw quite a bit of gold??
P.S excuse my selfie, night lights and flash show everything especially no makeup Xx
Would you love to rock curls that stay all day? Of course you would.. Its actually a little more simple than we have been led to believe all these years!
Scrunch in a generous amount of mouse from root to tip. I find clip less wands the easiest of the hot tool options as it gives a define curl and you can work the shape you like. If it’s a true curl curl you fancy you do the usual winding the hair around the barrel, if you like an S shape wave you get this by twisting the hair then wrapping.
You can either wind these curls into pin curls or spray with your favourite hairspray, leave while you are getting ready then style by either brushing or running your fingers through X
Pink is back! More gorgeous than ever actually. The colours are shimmering and look fabulous blended in with matt shades as seen in last months vogue. Add a wash of apricot or pink to the eyes and lips though make sure you have a flawless cream tone base or it will make the redness in your skin stand out which is never pretty. Who wants to achieve this look for their function, if you have blue eyes this will make them pop just like the picture below xx
It is quite daunting when the time comes to book in a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist for such a big day as your wedding. As we all have our own likes, ways, colours and technique you may be … Continue reading
