We would like to hire you to create a Christmas Makeup tutorial video exclusively advertising our products.
Our collection is very fashionable, of high European quality and health standards.
We carry the latest in fashion color cosmetics and sell them at the lowest prices.
We are going to be launching our website very soon. We will also be shipping worldwide.
As soon as we launch our website we will send you the link in order for you to take a look at our collection.
We will send you the samples you want to use for your video tutorial free of charge.
If you are interested, please inform us of your rate per tutorial video, your mailing address and contact information.
My services as a make up artist are for hire, however my YouTube channel make up videos and Blog are only of products that I like and have used, whether those products have been free or I have purchased. So before I do any videos with your products I would need to try the products to be happy that what I am advertising is worth it. I do not mean to be rude or insult your product line, but you can imagine that I am approached often to advertise products and so I impose this standard on all companies I work with. It is really important that I am honest about products that I use in my tutorials. If your products are good then I will have no problem using them and advocating them.
*For this I do not require payment.*
If you would like to use the video I produce to advertise your products for example on your website then I do expect a fee that we can discuss in due course.

A passing sadness when I was thinking about Harvey and looking through a few photos. The lovely Cosmetic Candy has jokingly offered me her kitties but I don't think I could love another kitty more than I loved Harvey. His companion Mewser (my other kitty) is a lovely girl and she would not cope with another cat in the house, she and Harvey didn't get on. He would wash her and she would hiss at him. They were largely time share cats, one in one out so they were never really in the same place together!
2. Do you read or study with the TV or music playing in the background?
I like complete silence, sometimes I like music in the background but I get bored of it quickly. I generally drive without the radio or music on.
3. Do you wear glasses?
Skinny jeans, warm fluffy jumper and long black cardigan
5. Cold weather — love it or hate it?
I love the bright sunny days that are slighly cold at the same time!
I'm wearing Clinique SPF30 Sun Block and that it's today!
7. What was the last nice thing to happen to you?
Husband came home from work and cheered me up!
8. Something you’d like to remind yourself of today:
There are always choices, it's up to me whether I am brave enough to make them.
9. Guys who carry man purses — yes or no?
My husband carries a back pack with him, generally containing the lunch I make him and who knows what else is in there!
10. Weekly goals: Make some videos for my channel and work on website!

I've been asked a lot about miracle products for keeping shine at bay and setting make up, well look no further than the faithful translucent powder. An under rated but essential part of your make up. You can wear on its own, under mineral foundation or over liquid and cream foundations/concealers.
You normally can find translucent powders as either a pressed compact or loose in a sifter tub. I love it because it is finely milled so feels light and soft on the skin. Unlike other powders it minimizes pores and really sets my liquid or cream make up.
On darker skins, you have to go carefully with translucent powder. It has to be really fine and of a darker colour which is not always available in some cheaper brands but persevere and you will find a tone that suits. Otherwise you will be able to see it and it makes skin look ashen and grey.
So the best way to apply it is with a light dusting using a powder brush and then press it in to the skin with a sponge. Then finally take your powder brush and remove any excess from your face.
Where you apply it is also key, if you have combination skin then use it in the places where you get oily, like round the nose, forehead and chin. If you have drier skin then try a translucent powder which contains moisturising ingredients to make sure that your skin doesn't look flaky.
If you have very oily skin then consider using a gel mattifying primer (like Kryolan or The Body Shop antishine gels).
If you have acne scarring or any bumpy spots, then avoid any sort of face powders with shimmer, which will accentuate rather than downplay any irregular textures.
I generally use e.l.f Mattifying Tranlucent Pressed Powder and Beauty Without Cruelty Loose Tranluscent Powder (also great for catching eye shadow fall out)

It's natural for people who book me for their bridal make up to want to see photos, until now I've only had my fashion portfolio. My clients photos are confidential so I can't use those either. Now I have a few Indian Bridal photos to show clients! There is a tutorial for this look on my channel. The jewellery is my own and I got it from the Asiana Bridal Show which was held in Birmingham earlier this year.
