On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink

Hey lovely!

I LOVE this pink themed makeup look I created the other day while I was house sitting for a friend. Who else whips out their makeup bag when they’re bored and home alone? *hands up* anyone? or is it just me? haha. I mean, if you’re going to spend the entire day (and probably night) netflix-ing like a champ then you should be glammed up, right?

I haven’t done a pink look in oh so long so I grabbed my ABH modern renaissance palette and went to town. I hope you enjoy what I came up with – oh and I know it’s a little long but I was in a chatty mood! I promise you’ll have a little laugh when I get scared by a noise (hey! it’s scary being all alone in the countryside after you’ve just watched a horror movie set in the woods!)…. Read More »

Diary of a Makeup Artist: My Favourite Shots from 2016/2017 Wedding Season

<a href=”http://www.brandbacker.com” title=”BrandBacker Member” alt=”BrandBacker Member” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://images.brandbacker.com/badges/no_badge.png”></a>

Ahhh the winter wedding break blues!! My last wedding was back in May. I do love the winter break but after a couple months I am itching to pick up my brushes again and paint my bridal parties to perfection. Since I still have to wait til September for the 2017/2018 season to start, I decided to go through the photos from some of my favourite weddings of last season. I had so many beautiful brides this last year. I really am so lucky that I have had the best bridal parties over the past 6 years – I can’t believe I am coming up to my seventh year of working as a freelance makeup artist!!

I have to say picking out my favourite photos from these weddings was quite difficult – my brides chose some of Perth’s best photographers to capture their special day. I wanted to post more photos but then you would be scrolling down forever! I have linked back to all the photographer’s websites so you can immerse yourself in more of their stunning work!…

Gift Vouchers – the Perfect Christmas Present for Makeup Lovers ♥♥♥

Hello lovelies ♥

I just wanted to do a quick post on my blog as I have been receiving emails in regards to gift vouchers! I actually had some done up this year so for the first time I have pretty vouchers with my own logo on there – so excited to send these out to my clients!

Makeup lessons are $110 per person and this includes an 8 piece professional brush set for each person to keep. I run private lessons and up to 6 people for group lessons. I cater the 2 hour lesson to personal requests – some people request a full on contouring and brow lesson, most want to do a day – night time lesson, I can also do a vintage makeup lesson…the options are almost endless haha.

If you would like to purchase a voucher for a friend or family member please send me an email abrushwithcolour@gmail.com

Lots of love,

Chloe  ♥ ♥ ♥

Makeup Lessons


Helloooo!

Today I wanted to talk about makeup lessons. Teaching makeup has become one of my favourite aspects of being a makeup artist, I love it 😀 I love getting to meet groups of women every weekend, I love sharing my knowledge with them and I love seeing the transformation that has taken place by the end of the lesson. Seriously, makeup is amazing! I love how it can transform, sculpt and enhance a person’s face. LOVE.

So what happens in a lesson?
For 2 1/2  hours I will teach you how to create fabulous makeup. You will learn how to contour those cheek bones, and highlight your best features. We will go through selecting the right colours to enhance your eye colour and skin tone plus application techniques that will make smokey eyes a breeze! I will also go through which makeup brushes to use and where to buy them from.  You will learn skills for life and discover how easy it is to replicate your gorgeous new style at home, time and time over.

I recommend you bring your own makeup and brushes so I can review them and suggest how they can be updated and supplemented if need be. Don’t stress if you don’t have any tools or makeup as I bring it all with me 🙂

Just so you can come prepared, I have started selling one of the brands of makeup I use, Arbonne. The liquid foundation is amazing! LOVE IT. You will get to use some of the products during the lesson and if you fall in love with anything you can buy from me that day or go online and order 🙂

Now, I thought I would share some photos taken during a couple of my makeup parties. Photos taken by Belinda Radalj.

You can book in a private lesson or a group lesson for a girly day or perhaps for a special occasion! It is a fun way to start off your Hen’s night/Birthday Bash/Fancy Dinner etc etc. plus you will all be glammed up for the rest of the night 🙂

Ha ha I love this photo….these ladies were so eager to learn about makeup they were crowding around me and taking notes like crazy 😀

Go on!..Book in a lesson, you won’t regret it. How could you? An afternoon or evening spent with your girlfriends, snacks, champagne, makeup and looking fabulous at the end of it…I couldn’t think of anything bettter haha.

Have a fabulous weekend lovelies…

Makeup Lesson: Jackie

Recently I ran a makeup lesson with Belinda’s gorgeous friend Jackie. It was my first time teaching makeup application.

I admit that I was a little nervous but Jackie immediately put me at ease, she is so easy going and friendly that it’s impossible to feel  nervous around her.

Jackie picked out several (make that, quite a lot) of looks she loved from her Rae Morris book. I decided to go with the natural look and a colorful green and purple look, which would bring out the green in her hazel eyes!

I mainly used Jackie’s makeup so I can’t remember what products I used. I did get to use Belinda’s 88 Warm Palette which has some really nice colors in it. I am going to buy it very soon!

First look: The Natural Look.

Second Look: Purple and Metallic Green.

Tomorrow my ad for makeup lessons will be opening on Living Social!!

I am so excited. I really hope that this ad brings in a lot more business for me. If I let myself think about the fact that I’ll be teaching groups of girls makeup application I start getting nervous. But I’m keeping focused.

I have compiled an ever growing list of makeup products/supplies I’ll need for lessons. It’s going to cost a bit for the outlay but it will be worth it in the end.

This is my list so far:

  • Disposable mascara wands
  • False lashes
  • More foundation
  • Lipsticks
  • Lipglosses
  • Lip liners
  • Face wipes
  • Mirrors
  • Little brush sets for my students
  • Cotton pads and buds
  • Hand sanitisers
  • Mac face charts
  • Mac Paint Pots in Ground Work, Bare Canvas and Bare Study.
  • Kryolan concealer wheel
  • A highlighter in powder and liquid
  • More mascaras…most likely Maybelline faslies and volume express.

I’m sure the list is going to get a lot bigger haha. I can’t wait to start crossing off this list 🙂

That’s it for this post! An outfit post is coming up next!

Hugs and kisses.
