Is Korean skincare better than all the rest? It's certainly having a moment in the spotlight right now. I don't know if there's a place that completely excels in all areas of skincare but I do know that Asian skincare is up there with the best when it comes to creating a brighter complexion. I've been wanting to sample some Korean skincare for quite some time, and for some reason I assumed it would involve a trip abroad. Thankfully one of the largest manufacturers Mask House, have brought Korean skincare to us, well Newcastle.
Here's a brand new video, expect them each Sunday at 5pm! Today's is a April Favourites video showing all the beauty products I'm loving and why. I also have a giveaway of a LIMITED EDITION Lulu Guinness Tangle Teezer as shown in the video. Look out for that post coming soon, a brand new boxed L.E. print could be yours! Let me know if there's any other videos you'd like to see by commenting in the video comments box and also any suggestions for my family channel The Offiongs as we do challenges, baking etc.
So I have been away from YouTube a couple of weeks and some of you have been asking about tutorials. Basically my son was poorly and we had a couple of trips to the doctors and hospital, and understandably any parent would put their childs health before work, no matter what job they do, as long as they're able to of course. YouTube and online is my job, yet I feel more guilty about taking time out of that than I would if I was working for a company. Maybe it's because I have a relationship with you guys and I feel I'm letting people down, it's also the fact that I'm basically self employed so if I don't work I don't get paid, and there's no such thing as paid holiday.
I've been a makeup artist for over 9 years but I've never shown me apply makeup on any one other than myself on my channel. This isn't for the lack of trying mind, it's difficult to find people who are willing to be bare faced on-line or locations to shoot with models. I've been working with Rosie Willet Designs for a coupe of years now, we've worked together on some of her campaigns for her wedding accessory brand www.rosiewillettdesigns.co.uk
I went on a little mission to find some mauve rose lip products on the highstreet in different finishes. It's a hugely popular shade in the beauty world right now so I wanted to see if many of the brands were on board. I'm impressed with the formulas of the products and can't wait to use them in videos.
So if you're looking to try something new and pretty with your hair now is the time, it's getting closer to the festivities and braids are always a popular choice with their variety, there's the halo (perfect with a skater dress) the reverse french braid (ideal with a biker jacket and distressed jeans) the waterfall braid, slightly tougher but very effective! - see my easy to follow video for that. And also the fish tail braid, which many seem to love!
So I don't usually upload on a Saturday but I was feeling a little shitty about not having a video up the week before as my schedule went crazy. I was incredibly excited to film this haul as it includes the equipment I've been working so hard to buy. While my friends all book up to go on lovely holidays I've spent the equivalent on a camera, mic and other essentials but I see it as an investment.
