You'll also love to read Laura's Autumn makeup tips. Cause lets face it,Autumn is practically around the corner.
"We know that healthy, glowing skin is the best base for any makeup application. Its summer so of course you will be using your SPF daily! As it starts getting a little cooler coming into Autumn, try adding a serum underneath your moisturizer to treat your skin to an extra hydration boost.
My favorite Autumn makeup look for 2019 is a sheer, flawless, dewy base with softly highlighted cheeks and brow bones (If you are a contouring fan, go lightly!). Brush through and define natural looking brows, mascara (of course) and finish with a bold lip. The 90’s warm brown lip tones are making a comeback. If you find them a little intense for your style, a good compromise is a warm color slightly darker than your natural lip. Stains or creamy matte’s look great.
Dress up the look at night with a light flick of liquid liner or a soft smudgy pencil line "
Can we take a moment to appreciate one of Laura's makeup set ups & view...
" I do LOVE Velvet- the silkiest primer which creates a flawless finish & amazing staying power & your lip gloss, the range of pigments is gorgeous & they have such a great texture - not too sticky like most glosses "
You can check out some of her recent work on Netflix & Foxtel,shows such as Ray Donovan,Friends from College ( if you haven't checked this series out make sure you do - i'm a huge fan & so will you be after a few eps)
She's also had some amazingly beautiful icons in her makeup chair like Sienna Miller, Susan Sarandon ( i am bowing down now ) & Mariah Carey.
Then there's talent like John Legend, Mark Ruffalo , Michael Buble, Kevin Costner & the list goes on.
We love hearing that our products are being used on such talented & famous faces.
Success comes with hard work & most of all Self Belief. An amazing dose of talent doesn't hurt either & Laura definitely has plenty of it.
