December Beauty Favourites & NEW YouTube Channel

Well, I finally started a new channel, dedicated to all things "beauty".
For years I have worked on many faces from family & friends to bridal clients, models and even the odd celebrity or two. 
You know the one thing most of these women had in common?
They wanted to be able to create beautiful make-overs for themselves, at home, just like a make-up artist would. Not much different from wanting to get that "just out of the hairdressers" look that is so lusted after.
Many times, I've been creating a look on someone, while their friends/family (or mine) look on, ask questions and take notes. I've even had people call me while they were out shopping to double check on a particular product name or, I've joked that I should start a make-up counselling hotline number.
So, instead, I've started the YouTube Channel...especially for those people...and anyone else who loves make-up, nails, hair & beauty, just like I do!!
A lot of the make-overs will be done on myself, family & friends (mainly Mums, just like me) so if you're in the 35+ group, you may find the little tid bits and tutorials useful, or at the very least a bit entertaining (even if it's just to have a chuckle at me...just be nice OK...I don't put up with trolls here or anywhere).

So here's my first video and post, which I hope will be a regular monthly thing. "Favourites". The swatches, details and any relevant links will be here on the blog.
So, please subscribe and give my video a thumbs up if you like it.
I'd love to hear any requests for tutorials....let me know OK?

The pictures below were taken on my phone just after I did the colour (I need a trim...badly), the second pic was taken near a window and the sun was setting, so it does look a little golder.
Soooo happy with this colour AND I did it myself!!
