Delving into the world of make up artistry with QC make up academy

Here is a little bit about me and why I have decided to take those vital steps and enrol in the QC Make up academies make up artistry course and why the traditional approach did not fit my needs.

Why not college??

Hey there everyone.  I have been interested in taking the first steps to becoming a make up artist for a really long time and so I applied to college.  I was accepted but due to my son having to do an extra year at nursery I am unable to attend this year.  I was totally gutted but I knew that sacrifice’s would have to be made when I became a mother.

So I started looking online, initially I was searching for books or tutorials on how to become a make up artist in order to gain as much information as possible before re-applying to college next year.

That’s when I stumbled upon a make up academy that sounded to good to be true.

About QC Make Up Academy, and why its right for me.

The one thing that firstly attracted my attention to this academy was the fact that they had payment plans in place.  As a mother of two young kids, I do not have the funds to pay for the course in full.  The course costs £958 all in.  You have the option to pay this in a variety of ways, either, in full, monthly, Bi weekly, or weekly.  For me the best option would be to pay it weekly as these payments are obviously the lowest.  My payment plan would be as follows.  £14 per week, every Tuesday for 70 weeks with one last payment of £5.  I have not come across any other courses that offer this flexibility.

Once I had a look at the prices and saw how flexible they were I then had a look at the different types of make up artistry courses they had to offer.  They’re are two courses that I was interested in, the first one is the Make up artistry course, this is the description of the course that is given on the website ” Learn the fundamentals of makeup artistry, daytime, evening and bridal makeup. Then, learn how to start your own freelance makeup business” The other is the course that I am enrolling in and that is the Master make up artistry course, here is the description of the course given by the academy on the website “Learn everything in our Makeup Artistry course plus makeup for theatre, movies, fashion shows, and photo shoots.” Pretty much what the first course offers but with a more in depth look at make up and the business side of things.

After deciding what course I was interested in taking I then looked in to what I was getting for my money and exactly how the online learning schedule worked.  With it being an online course you can study at your own pace there are no deadlines to  meet.  You get a make up artistry starter make up kit as well as DVD’s, books and a personal tutor.  There are six personal tutor and you are paired with one who will grade your work and will talk you through any obstacles that you may find difficult along the way.

You are asked to finish an assignment by being given a look and told to re create this look on yourself, you will then take a photo that you will upload to your tutor where they will grade your work.  There is other types of assignments not all of them are going to be putting make up on yourself and taking a selfie.  There is also the option to learn how to set up your own freelance make up artistry business.  If you are not interested in taking these classes then you do not have they are completely optional.  I however will be taking these classes as I feel that they are a fundamental part of a make up artistry business being successful.

Is there anyone that has already taken this course??

Overnight Hair Treatments

For Tangle-Free Strands: L’Oréal Paris Nourishing Leave-In Spray

Sleeping can always be a bit of a gamble for your hair—you just never know what kind of tangles you’re going to wake up with. Thankfully, there’s a product for that (our favorite phrase). This spray locks in moisture and shine while keeping your strands lightweight and tangle-free.

For Healthy, Hydrated Hair: Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Moisture Whip Leave-In

If you’re looking for a product that doesn’t just work, but smells amazing too, you’ve hit the jackpot. Using this leave-in conditioner whips your hair into shape with the power of goji berry, passion fruit and kiwi so you can run your hands through your strands all day long.

If you thought you were a fan of the hair flip before, wait until you try this. This spray boasts twenty-five benefits, ranging from hair manageability to protection. It’s safe for ombre lovers, strengthens strands for heat-addicted ladies, and takes care of everything in between while you get some Zzzs in.


Overnight Treatments for Hands, Feet, Cuticles & Lips

For Soft Hands: The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Butter

Winter can be rough on our hands in a way that no mani can cure. The solve? Nighttime hand cream. Almond Hand & Nail Butter has a sweet almond scent to go with its ultra-hydrating formula. The bonus is that it’s non-greasy, so it’s won’t leave anything on your sheets.

For Touchable Toes: The Body Shop Moisturizing Foot Cream

Even in the winter, you’re going to take your boots off at some point. And when you do, you’re not going to remember the excuses you had for not moisturizing. Use the Body Shop’s Moisturizing Foot Cream to replenish skin’s moisture barrier for ultra soft skin. Pro Tip: For intensive action, apply at bedtime, then slip on a pair of moisturizing socks and leave to work overnight.

For Soft Cuticles: essie apricot cuticle oil

When you just don’t have the time to sneak in an emergency mani, swipe on a few drop of this cuticle oil before bedtime to revitalize your nails. Containing 75% apricot kernel oil, this formula absorbs quickly to leave you with soft and nourished cuticles.

For Pillowy Lips: SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair

Do you ever feel like all you’re doing is applying and re-applying lip balm? Sounds like you could use something a little stronger during the night. Formulated with antioxidants to fight environmental damage and hydrate lips, this potent treatment will leave your lips pillowy-soft.

Overnight Skin Care Treatments

For Long-Lasting Hydration: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque

This overnight hydrating masque is the perfect complement to the daily moisturizer you’re already using. Not only does it boost skin’s ability to absorb moisture, but the glacial proteins and desert plant leaves will have your skin feeling refreshed and supple by morning.

For Radiant Skin: The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil

These days, serums and facial oils are all the rage—but where do you begin? The simple solution is to try both at once, and that’s where this Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil comes in. Apply a few drops into the palm of your hand, pat on your face before bed, and let the good skin begin.

Calming Skin Treatment: SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque

You know that feeling of relief you get when applying aloe on a sunburn? Made with botanical extracts, a calming dipeptide, and hyaluronic acid, this masque replenishes and soothes skin, all while helping to eliminate any redness the winter wind might have brought about.

For Brighter Skin: Garnier SkinActiv Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Leave-On Peel

Some of us always wake up looking radiant. And some of us need a little more, um, help. If you’re a part of the latter crew, allow us to introduce Garnier’s overnight peel with glycolic alpha hydroxyl acid and a boost of vitamin C. The overnight peel works to help even skin tone while you sleep, so that your fantasy of waking up and walking out the door can become a reality.

For Supple, Hydrated Skin: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa

On our list of beauty pet peeves, flakes are pretty high up there. Say goodbye to those dry patchesfor good thanks to this thermal water-infused, nighttime mask by Vichy, specifically formulated to hydrate skin while you grab some shut eye.

Of course I went directly to their site to check out this awesome offer.

Forever21 has to be one of the most popular online clothing stores at the moment, it has dramatically grown in popularity over the last year.  With it very on trend clothing and accessories you would think that it would be pricey too.  I can assure it is not. Forever21 has been compared to the likes of misguided and asos but the price’s in my opinion are much more affordable.

I recently done a post onmy latest obsessions and one of those obsessions was with bomber jackets.  I know that a nice bomber jacket from asos or misguided would set you back roughly £30, on Forever21’s site you can grab yourself on trend, lovely bomber jacket for only £18
FOREVER21 Women's Dusty Pink Padded Bomber Jacket

A Bit About The Company
To outline just how much this company has grown popularity, let me tell you this. This company has been around for 30 years and is the 5th biggest specialty retailer in the US. It has dramatically grown within the last year with sales over $700,00 USD. They aim to be an $8 billion pound company by 2017 and open another 600 stores worldwide. Although forever21 has had this all of this success it is still a family run and owned business, maybe that is their secret to not being pushed aside by some of the giants within this industry.

Complete Beauty Essential

Hey there girls and guys. I hope that we are all good on this very windy morning.

Today I have brought to you a new kind of post, I have put together all you will need to give yourself a beautiful natural everyday look.  I have completely scoured the web,put forward  my favourite products, and products that I know through experience work.  There are a couple of little bargains amongst this little lot and that may be something else you notice……..That there are not thousands of products.  No you do not need loads of different products in order to achieve a fresh glowing complexion.  Also for an everyday make up look I leave out the eyes completely.  On my usual days I am doing housework, walking the dog, getting the kids ready for school, dropping off and picking them up from school and I sometimes think that turning up to the school gates with my best winged eyeliner look can sometimes be a bit much even though it looks cool as hell. One rule I like to use when putting on my minimal fresh faced look is to either do my eyes or my lips, and for me I will always opt for the lips, there are just to many beautiful matte lipsticks out there to just leave them out of my make up routine, I just can’t do it.  You may be different and opt for the eyes but just remember if you do go for the eyes instead of the lips that less is more……No spider lashes please.

Quick Tip…..

If you want your lashes to be darker than they are but with very little effort then there is a brand new product on the market that I personally can’t wait to get my hands on, I have blonde hair so I therefor have blonde eyelashes, although they are long lashes and I am always being asked if I am wearing fake lashes, unless I have a lot of mascara on (which for me having to get ready in the morning with, two young kids takes up to much time due to the amount I actually have to apply, and with it, it brings a whole other range of things that takes up to much time, such as making sure my lashes do not look like spider legs, making sure they are not all stuck together, and making sure that I am not suffering from wonky eyes which if you didn’t already know is caused by having slightly more mascara on one eye than the other. Hense why I opt for the quick lip) you basically cannot see them, yes they are totally invisible. Anyway, if you are like me then you have to try out the new Volume Colourist Mascara By Rimmel which tints lashes over time, you do not have to apply a lather to your lashes to achieve the desired tinting effect. This is a new must have for every single lady or ladyette I know get yours here Volume Colourist Mascara Only £4.99 From Ebay,–>

Birchbox amazing under £20 Deals

Good morning everyone.  I have had an obsession with subscription boxes at the moment, not only are they great value for money but it is an amazing opportunity to try products that you wouldn’t normally buy, it is also a great way to try out products that you maybe have had your eye on for a while.

I have recently bought the following subscription boxes

  • Look Fantastic – summer edition
  • Look Fantastic – Best Of British Edition
  • Glossybox – August box with bonus box ( Still Awaiting Delivery Due To It Being Sent to My Old Address)
  • Flamingo Candle – Melt Crowd Box (still awaiting delivery)

So far I have been impressed by the look fantastic boxes so I am excited for the delivery of the others. I have also been having a look at any other subscription boxes I can try out and the one that keeps popping up when I type subscription boxes in to a google search engine that I haven’t tried yet is Birchbox so I decided to go on to their website to have a look and this is what I found.


A bit about Birchbox – Is it different from other beauty boxes? YES

Birchbox differ slighty to other beauty boxes as the boxes are customised for the customer by the customer, you fill in what they call a beauty profile and based upon what you input in to the beauty profile that determine what you receive in your monthly beauty box.  So unlike other subscription beauty boxes where everyone receives the same items in their box, in this box you will have items that are for your skin type, hair type, and make up preference.  Everything is tailored to you. If you like the sound of this box click the link to be taken to their site, create your beauty profile and start enjoying your box. <a href=”″><IMG border=”0″ alt=”BIRCHBOX UK” src=”″&gt;

Whats New This Month?

This month at Birchbox you are receiving a free Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner, this is reported to be loved by our U.S friends.  You can get this freebie in two colours, coco brown or a sultry purple.  Also this month instead of your five beauty products coming to you in the trademark box, you will receive it in an exclusive neon beauty bag that is available in four colours.

Deals And Offers

Once you have had your birchbox delivered and you have had a chance to try out some of the products inside you can go to the birchbox shop where you can purchase full-sized products.  They have amazing deals within the shop such as:

  • Under £20 Section – Which consists of brands such as Benefit and up and coming brands as well.
  • Value Kits Section – There some lovely gift sets available and there is quite a variety of them that you can bag for under £20.  Although there are some much pricier gift sets they are still great value for money, they have everything from sets for him, sets for the nail fanatic, beautiful gift sets for those of us that like everything to smell like you can consume it (even if you can’t), and sets to make you feel like a goddess with their skin softening products.
  • 75% Off Summer Sale – This sale is amazing, there 16 pages of discounted products for you to choose from, and of course you do not have to limit yourself to just selecting products that you tried within your beauty box, because some of these products are so inexpensive you can afford to buy a full-sized version for a fraction of the price.  Here are some of the best discounted items I have found within this sale.

The Best Items Within The 75% Sale List:

I can go on and on with this list as there loads of amazing deals. All those deals and you are also getting free shipping on orders worth £35 upwards.  Go on grab yourself a haul now while this sale lasts.

Have I added this beauty box to my list of subscription boxes?? YES

I have just gone and ordered myself one of these boxes, although this month they are not boxes, it is this month that you’re getting the exclusive neon bag worth £8!!

So maybe once all of my beauty boxes have arrived I can give you all the low down on the best value for money, the best brands, etc.

I have also found an obsession with candle subscription boxes which work exactly the same as beauty boxes but with candles ( as if I had to point that out) But that’s for another post.

Keep up to date and up to my subscribe page to subscribe to my newsletter to be kept up to date on beauty boxes, deals, voucher codes and more,


Much love xx

So What Did You Buy To Receive Your Freebie?? – Here’s how to get as much bang for your buck as poss

There are a few ways you can buy items to become eligible for the free box but if you want to get as much bang for your buck as possible which is what I and my blog are all about, then this is how I bought my boxes in order to get as much items as possible.

There are a few boxes in their collection one of which looks amazing but unfortunately but not surprisingly has sold out, and it would have been my first choice and that was the “Girls Night Out Box” which consists of anything and everything you would need for a night out on the town with your besties, but as it is no longer available I won’t go in to listing the items, The price for this box was only £20.

So instead I chose the “Glamour Summer Edit” which is only £20 but is actually worth £104, and consists of the following items:

  • Aurelia Probiotic Skincare – This is a cream cleanser, use with the muslin cloth which is also included to lift away dead skin cells. It is said to make the skin clearer and brighter
  • Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolour in HD Devotion – This colour looks great on all skin tones, this is smooth and velvety in a gel formula for longer lasting colour
  • ST TROPEZ Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mist – This is a light weight formula designed to leave you looking tanned with an airbrushed effect and with no horrible smell, instead it leaves the skin smelly lovely with a fresh fragrance
  • Ladival SPF 30 – everyone’s skin needs protection and that’s what you can expect from this product, Its waterproof formula protects against skin giving 4 times more protection
  • WOW Mask – This is a luxury facial mask that reduces wrinkles and minimises pores leaving you with instantly younger looking skin.
  • Grounded Coffee Scrub Uk, Chocolate And Orange Body Scrub – YUMMY!! How nice does this sound, This will leave your skin silky smooth it has almond oil and other ingredients that are full of anti-oxidants to protect and strengthen.
  • ORIBE Dry Texturising Spray – I have never heard of this product but upon a little researxh it is popular amongst celebs, it is said to smell beautiful, and have oil absorbing properties which keeps roots lifted and locks smelly beautiful all day.
  • NUXE Prodigiuex Shower Oil – Use in the shower, before tanning it has a little shimmer in it which leaves the skin with a slight glow, this smells of sweet almond, vanilla and orange blossom, Mmmmmm!!

This box is only £20 so in order to qualify for the freebie box the cheapest way to go would be to “Build Your Own Box” You can choose from a few different boxes, you can have a 3 item box for £8.99, a 6 item box for £12.99 or a 9 item box for £16.99.  I went for the 3 item box.  There is a variety of amazing products from tanning, make – up and body butter to fragrances and even bath salts.  You just select what Items you want, I chose.

  • ST TROPEZ Gradual In Shower Lotion – Now I do not know how this works but its like magic you apply in the shower to reveal a beautiful tan, amazing!!
  • Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave In Conditioner – apply to damp towel dried hair for a silky smooth great hair day.
  • Lipcote The Original Lipstick Sealer – Apply this on top of your fave lippie and it will make sure that is transfer resistant and stays all day.

So once you add this Build your own box to your basket you then become available for the free box.  So for  the price of £28.99 you get a whole range of products that are well worth over £150!!!

How Many Products!!!!!!

14 brand name products or only £28.99. And you are completely taken care of, from top to toe you can give yourself a total make over or complete pampering with this awesome customised by you for you.  You won’t find that anywhere else.  I just ordered mine last night so I cannot wait to do my unboxing on this when it finally arrives.

My first make up tutorial!!


Hello and welcome my beautiful people. I have been asked loads of times if I would post a make up tutorial of my everyday make up.  Mums at the nursery or people that I meet are always commenting on how nice my make up is and what products I use.  Also some people seen completely stumped as to how I get it done with two young kids and the truth is with great difficulty.  As you will see in the vid which features my daughter, my dog and my partner, in fact the tutorial had to be done in two parts as muy partner came in and decided to ruin it, so instead of being clever and pressing record I pressed stop!!!

My family are so completely incompetent without me that you hear them asking me various questions throughout the video.

My dog also eats my make up brush!!!

I also would like to show that you do not have to have break the bank products in order to look and feel pretty and confident.  All of the brushes and products I use are all £10 and under.  Most of the items are bought from ebay, if you like the look of the brushes click here if you like the look of the brushes, this link will take you to a past post and review that I did about these brushes.  My ebay bargains!!!

I would also just like to state that I am in no way a professional camera woman, I am no way an expert in make up, and I am nit a make up artist, this is just how I do it, and what works best for my ever aging skin.

I enjoyed making it so I hope that comes across and you enjoy watching.

PS. Sorry about the rough Scottish accent, but that’s just who I am.

Much love
