"She Rolled my Hair, Put my Lipstick on..."

This post is something a little bit different for "The Sequin Cinderella".
The focus is not on my outfit but rather on my hair and makeup. I have never really been one to put much emphasis on either of those, my hair and makeup routine was always the same.
Hair down and straight or hair down and curly!
My makeup always consisted of the following:
Foundation...(applied with my fingers I might add,) loose powder, blusher on the round part of my cheeks, mascara, eye brow pencil and a touch of eye-liner! Simple! Ready in twenty mins for day or night, no change in routine!
Can many of you relate to this?
Well then one day I allowed my friend, award winning hairdresser and makeup artist Tara Henderson to work her magic and transform my beauty routine forever. The results were incredible.
I discovered that there are actually cheek bones under those little round cheeks of mine, that my hair can be away from my face and shock shock, it may even suit me. I found out that my skin can look absolutely flawless by adding a little concealer and primer and perhaps the biggest eye-opener of all was the difference that a foundation brush can make, not only to the appearance of my skin but to economising and making the foundation bottle last longer.
Never again will I use my fingers to apply makeup!
Tara is a member of the Northern Irish hairdressing team and winner of numerous titles in the hairdressing world and I am lucky to have worked with her on a number of photo shoots in recent weeks. I look forward to sharing them with you and hearing your opinion on how different I look in each one!
