Tutorial – Glam Evening Make up


I received a bucket load of “likes” on FB and Instagram on the Selfie I took before I went to a 40th birthday party.


Glam evening make up tutorial



Some feedback told me that you lovely Fashionistas would like to know how I did it.

This is a super glam look, not for the faint hearted. As 40+/50+ ladies, we are told not too use shimmery, shiny colours because they accentuate our “not-like-it-used-to-be” skin.

I call it.


We can wear whatever we like. I am not saying that you should be using glitter all over your face, our Disco days are gone.  But a bit of shimmer strategically placed looks AMAHZING.

Have a look at how I applied my make up, and if you like it, have a go yourself. Make up should be fun. It is a quick vid, only 6:30 minutes.
