Hey everyone! I’m filling in the intro for Kiki this week as she’s not feeling the best. Hope she gets better soon. She wants to say she’s sorry that she hasn’t been posting a lot but she will be back next week. I want to say thank you for those who sent in suggestions for my new Youtube channel. It’s set up with this video as my first upload. Check out the rest of the channel here. This is the channel where I will be posting makeup videos from now on. I have also come up with a solution to answer all of your questions from Twitter, Youtube & this blog. After every week’s Makeup Friday video I will post a blog post with all your questions (concerning my Kristen tutorials and other general makeup videos) and my answers here. If you have a question about my Emma videos I’ll post a Q&A on my Emma Watson Fashion Blog (I’ve put a link for that further down).

I didn’t use any primer for this look as the Gosh foundation has excellent coverage which lasts all day without a primer. It’s an excellent foundation which I would recommend getting. The shade I’ve used is the palest colour you can get and looks white on the video but isn’t really that pale. I applied it using a foundation brush all over the face. Then a put a light layer of powder over the foundation. Then I applied a medium brown blush in the shape of a “3” from the temple, down underneath the cheekbones and underneath the jaw line. Then I applied a pink blush on my cheekbones and lightly over the apples of my cheeks.
After applying a primer to the eye lid and in a thin line on the lower lid, apply a black shadow to the eye lid only. Gradually build up the black. Don’t pile on a huge amount all at once, otherwise, you’ll end up with tremendous amounts of fall down on your cheeks which is not a good look. Don’t be too neat with the shadow and create a subtle gradient of colour making the shadow darker at the top. Then using a black liner, fill in the bits you missed along the top lash line. Again, you don’t want to be too neat with this. Same with the lower lash line. Using a pencil liner in black apply a thin and not too neat line along the waterline into the inner corner of the eye. Before applying mascara, brush out your brows and using a dark brown colour fill in your brows. Make your brows as horizontal as your can. Don’t make too high of an arch. Make the start of your brows quite square and strong. Apply a light layer of clear mascara over them to keep the hairs in place all day. Then apply mascara. Go overboard with the mascara on the top lid. You can apply mascara to the lower lashes but not too much or none at all.
First apply a pink lipstick. The one I’ve found is the perfect colour and I would really recommend this colour. It’s the most beautiful shade of pink. To make the colour pop add a bit of clear gloss over the middle of your lips.
