This is the makeup that I wore to the last day of my course. I wish that the glitter had shown up more in the pictures, it looked gorgeous in real life!

I just got all of my wisdom teeth out two days ago so I've had to take a few days off and I finally have time to post my entry for our end of course competition. The theme that we were given was 'Great Works Of Art' and we had a time limit of three hours for the hair and makeup.
I found out on the last day at my course that I came in 1st place!
"Yuuwaku" 誘惑 allure by Audrey Kawasaki - My chosen piece of art that inspired the look I created.

For Halloween I dressed up as a sailor. I didn't have time to do much makeup so this look was pretty simple but I wanted to try out one of the glitters that I got from IMATS (which I still need to post swatches of).

As a part of the makeup course that I am doing we had to research the Spring/Summer 2011 hair and makeup trends. I haven't been wearing much makeup lately but I was inspired by the colour blocking trend to do some colourful makeup.

I'm nearly finished my course so I will have more time to start posting again, and I've got a ton I need to post about!
I had a fantastic time in Sydney and met lots of great people, I just wish I could have been there for longer. I can't wait for next year!

I'm so excited that I finally have time for a new blog post, I've missed you all so much!
This is from my Mum's birthday dinner at the start of July which is why my hair is still blonde in these pictures.

I recorded this tutorial on the 29th of June and when I started it I had no idea of what I was going to do, I just knew that I wanted to use my Inglot eyeshadows. The background music isn't working because of a bug with AudioSwap but hopefully it will be fixed soon.
I am so excited to be attending IMATS Sydney again this year! I'll only be in Sydney for one and a half days unfortunately because I don't want to miss much class time so it will be a whirlwind trip!

I have been dying my hair bright colors since I was 12 but about a year and a half ago I promised myself (and my mother) that I wouldn't have any bright colors in my hair anymore I guess in an effort to be taken more seriously. Well I finally accepted that I had to do something to get my hair healthier because of the damage that has been caused from being so blonde for many years, and I'm not really a natural color type of person (as you may have realized) so I took the plunge last Friday and dyed my hair raspberry!
I'm so excited about it that I had to share it with you all and I hope you love it as much as I do.
The eyes in this are the same as this.
