Back to Basics: Make-up for Glasses Wearers

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!

We have a new video up on our channel, something a bit different this time. The lovely Danielle from the fashion and beauty blog, Fashionista Barbie agreed to come and do a video with us and we decided to do a make-up look for glasses wearers.

I loved the colours I used on Danielle as they complimented her skin tone nicely, you’ll find a full product list below the video. I’ll be doing more make-up looks for glasses wearers so watch this space.

If you’re a glasses wearer, do you struggle with eye make-up? Or are there any tips and tricks you’d like to share with us?


Back to Basics: Shaping Eyebrows

Here’s the latest video from our YouTube channel. We’ve kept it quite simple but it’s packed full of great tips so we know you’ll enjoy it.

As part of our brow series, we’ve also done a video with make-up artist and grooming specialist Natalie aka The Mother Plucker, which we’ll post very soon.

Tomato Crayon

This is RMK’s Spring Matte Lip Crayon in Orange 05, which is a beautiful
tomato shade!

Pros? Easy to apply with its rounded nib, with a nice creamy finish. Not as drying as other matte lipsticks.

Cons? Less vibrant than I had personally hoped for and it didn’t last very long on the lip without fading.

Verdict? Still extremely pricey at £18 – but a great shade and worth having in your bag. Lets hope they bring the price down! As long as you don’t mind topping up and prefer a more subtle shade then this is for you.


Another celebrity inspired video…

If you’re a keen youtube viewer then you’ll have noticed how many ‘celebrity inspired’ make-up videos there are! So, here at MadeUp we thought we’d try another one out as Fran has already done a Kardashian one so this will add to the collection. I really enjoyed making this video as I would never usually wear this much make-up so it was fun experimenting.

We really wanted to find a wig for this video but we didn’t have time, however, we did try spraying my hair black but it was such a disaster Rich had to go in really close for the intro shot to try and hide it! It was another really fun filming day but we did eat pizza AGAIN! :/

Fran did a beautiful Rita Ora and Taylor Swift and I did a Zooey Deschanel so lots more videos to come…
