VBxEsteeLauder Collection

Victoria Beckham was first apart of my life, when Spice Girls were all I listened to. I was totally that girl who had the bob haircut and the tight flared ankle black pants form HBK, with the crop turtle neck top prancing around the living room pretending I was posh spice.

Being a Makeup Artist I am often running around all over the place between bookings, coming in

H&M has landed in Christchurch!

It’s been a long wait, but one that was worth every second.. Christchurch our city as a shopping destination is BACK! Having worked in City Mall pre Earthquake and after, it’s safe to say ALOT changed. A mall that used to be buzzing with shoppers and workers suddenly became a quiet sometimes daunting place to be.

When lighting is everything!

If you are an influencer or just someone who appreciates great lighting while doing your makeup, then you are probably going to want the Desk pro. So what is it? Basically a ring light but set on a smaller tripod. Having a tripod that’s more compact but still adjustable is awesome as it means it can be more at your level, allowing the light to hit all the right places.
