The Friendly Flick Tutorial

The rationale behind this Friendly Flick is that I feel that sales assistants should take note. Flamboyant and visually stunning make up may make you look amazing but to a customer it just looks intimidating. 99% of women (and that is a made up statistic but in my anecdotal evidence seems correct) don't want to look like a make up sales assistant. Customers want help with foundation/concealer colours and formulations and eye and lip colours that suit them, you know the ordinary make up that makes them feel human! It also has to be easy as the average person hasn't got the time and patience for something complicated requiring many brushes and tools!

I would thoroughly recommend Pixi (off Carnaby Street) and The Make Up Store as their assistants were friendly, helpful and not too made up. They looked like regular people with lovely make up!

Anyway, enough of my wisdom (read rant). Enjoy the friendly flick tutorial and let me know how you get on!


  1. Thanks this was a FAB video I loved it, and of course you looked stunning in it :)

  2. I love this look, it's going to be really helpful for teaching my friend to apply liner tomorrow. That blusher looks great on you too!

  3. I absolutely love your videos. have been following you for a long time! It's so good to see an Indian beauty guru who does such a fantastic job! With my Indian skin tone, lots of times on youtube, it's hard to find and be able to associate yourself with other gurus due to such different skin tones. love you work. Just wanted to ask you, In mac what shade are you? NC40? i just wanted it for my reference. thanks so much

  4. Thanks lovely ladies, it was a very good look for intimidating estate agents!

    @chatterpants - I think I am somewhere around NC40 - 42, still not orangey enough for my skin though.
