The National Asian Wedding Show with Ksavi Professional Hair & Makeup Team.

Hi lovelies,

Welcome back to my blog and hello to long winter nights!

Today's post is all about my exciting weekend at 'The National Asian Wedding Show' in Excel, London, working as a team member with Shetal Joshi of Ksavi Celebrity Hair & Makeup, you can find her Website link here and her facebook page link here.

It really was a wonderful opportunity and experience working with Ksavi Celebrity Hair & Makeup team as a I try and build my own professional portfolio of work as a makeup artist.
You will see some of my show related work in this post and you can find me on my facebook page 'Makeup By Em' link here  or you can follow me on my 'Makeup By Em' instagram account here or my 'Ohh So Peachy' instagram account here
We had a awesome team of hair & makeup artist's to get 20 and more models ready for the catwalk and various stand models including Ksavi's own stand showcasing her service as a outstandingly talented MUHA.

It was amazing working back stage doing hair and makeup for our nominated models along with helping as dresser for the catwalk models for the couture show which was showcased 3 times per day with the 'Haute Couture' of Asian Bridalwear of the moment.
The outfits were all beyond stunning with intricately worked show stopper pieces with some weighing twice the weight of the actual models who wore them.
The models themselves were breathtaking in their beauty, grace and the ease that they carried themselves on the runway.
The male model all looked fiercely handsome in their Sherwani's and other wedding attires and would make any mother happy with her daughters choice.

Please don't just take my word for it as you can see from the images below what a totally mind blowing weekend it was and even though it was high pressured and intense at times all of that was irrelevant once you saw the end result! and to sum it up what girl doesn't enjoy playing with makeup and dress-up for a whole weekend!? Not me that's for sure ;))

Hope you enjoy!!

Until next time xx

Ex1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation Reviewed!

Hi beautiful peeps!
Hope everyone's well and learning how to swim! 
It seems that we in the UK are getting more rain then the monsoon season in India and it doesn't look like it's going to be letting up anytime soon :(
Now that we've made a bit of chit chat lets get on with the review of this EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation which has been manufactured by Farah Naz.
I purchased this foundation from Top Shop in central London for £10.50 you can purchase this here The size is 30ml and Top Shop has the whole range available to test and sample.

This is what it say's on the EX1 Website about the foundation..

Specially designed 'true colour' pigments work perfectly with your skins natural tones in a velvety smooth ultra-blended formula. Cleverly designed light diffusing particles detract attention away fro…

What's on your lips?

Do you always know what your wearing on your lips? or do you just know the name of the brand & shade?

With Red lipsticks being very popular at the moment and me trying to find my perfect shade of red I found out a few more things then I had anticipated....

Well this may not be news to some people as it was to me but it really did shock me to find out that nearly 50% of all lipsticks manufactured in the US contains pig fat to give the shiny appearance! 

I always thought to myself that in this day and age where there are so many synthetic & vegetarian alternative's cosmetic companies wouldn't still be using animal derived ingredients but I was very disappointed by what I found.

The very brief summary below shows a list's all the animal, fish, insect derived ingredients which are used routinely in majority of lipsticks here in the UK.

Names of animal derived ingredients.

Wax (usually beeswax)  provides the solid shape of the lipstick.

Glycerine (usually an animal or vegeta…

*Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Foundation versus *Urban Decay NakedSkin Liquid Make-Up swatches

Hello my lovelies!

Today's post is all about my latest foundation swatches for shades suitable for mid-tone South Asian skin colouring (as in me) or Olive skin tones without too much yellow.  
The samples I picked up are from Benefit and Urban Decay.

I picked up 2 of each from the 2 different brands and was colour matched by the make-up consultant and was given 2 samples from each to try out at home, which is great as its really difficult to get a real match under the store lights..

The foundation swatches that I am reviewing today are 'Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW from Benefit (shades *Beige & *Toasted Beige)  
Naked Skin Liquid Make-Up from Urban Decay (*shades no 6 & 7) which is the first Foundation by Urban Decay. They do have a Beauty Balm but I was looking for a natural finish foundation for everyday use during the summer months..

Now  the 1st review is of the *Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Foundation from Benefit and this is what it says on their website about the product:
