SoSu X Keilidh Collaboration.

I have been following Keilidh on Instagram and YouTube for a while, she is an Irish makeup artist and is so bloody talented. She uses a lot of products from a makeup brand called SoSu by Suzanne Jackson. SoSu by Suzanne Jackson is an Irish makeup brand who is cruelty free and ship worldwide.

Keilidh collaborated with SoSu and brought out a collection. I was so excited when sneak peeks of the collection came out, it looked so good. The collection includes:

1 x Urban Bible 16 Shade Eyeshadow Palette                                                                                 1 x Urban Rebel 7 Piece Brush Collection                                                                                         3 x Lashes – Black Heart, Ego & Keilidh

I couldn’t resist making a cheeky order, after all you need to treat yourself from time to time. I ordered the brush collection and 1 x ego lashes. I kept telling myself I don’t need another eye shadow palette but I ended up ordering it as well but a little bit later.

I’m not big into wearing false lashes but the ones I ordered applied easily and felt really comfortable on the eye, I kept them on all day. That’s a big deal for me because I always end up taking them off half way through a day, but after a while I forgot I had them on.

The brush collection is an eye brush set with a highlighter brush. The packaging on the brushes is so cool and on the back of the box it tells you exactly what to use each brush for to give you the best result, I think that was really helpful. I feel like this is what I needed, the perfect eye brushes, they are so soft and blend like a dream. I love the sleek all black brushes.

And last but not least, the Urban Bible 16 Shade eye shadow palette. The palette has 11 matt and 5 shimmer shades. I love that half the palate is colourful and the other half is more day to day / grungy colours. I felt inspired as soon as I opened the palette and have seen other people create so many different looks with this palette.

Some of my faviourate looks Keilidh had created with her palette.

I think there has been so much personality put into this collection. When I think of keilidh I think of bold eyes, she always creates amazing eye looks and this collection is just her to a tea. I would recommend treating yourself to this collection. I will leave all the information below if you want to have a look at the collection or check out keilidh and SoSu.

So, I thought I would share the Christmas inspired makeup look I managed to do.

Basic Stage Makeup Assessment!

As part of the theatrical side of my course we had to learn and be assessed on basic stage makeup and it is very different to say the least. All products used are cream and then powdered.

Stage makeup must be 2 or 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone because stage lighting washes you out. So, if you wore foundation to match your skin tone the lighting would make you look really washed out. Classic eye shadow is blue or green. There would be crème contour. Red lips and very bright pink blusher. Black liner on eyelids and under eye to create the effect of mascara and very natural brows.

For the assessment it wasn’t timed but both myself and my partner needed to complete our looks, including hair and outfit in the 4-hour lesson, so we basically had 2 hours each. I felt really relaxed about this assessment because we didn’t have to rush we could take out time with the makeup.

I created Glinda the good witch from wicked the musical for my assessment. I got 95% which is a distinction.

Alien Collection.

As soon as I watched Jeffree Star’s reveal video for his Alien Collection, I was obsessed and had to buy it as soon as I could. The colours in the palette were just so beautiful and very different to any palette that I currently have. There were also a few lip products that really jumped out at me as well.

I really wanted the Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade “You’re Still On The Property” but it sold out within minutes so couldn’t get my hands on this one.

I bought a liquid lipstick in shade ‘Karma’ and a lip Ammunition in shade ‘Area 52’.

My favourite purchase has to be the Alien Palette. The colours are stunning and are so different to any palette I have or have seen. The palette is vegan and cruelty free.

The colours in the palette are:

  • Pluto – Icy white with a peachy duo-chrome shift
  • Titan – Ivory bone matte.
  • Alien – Cool green shimmer.
  • Interstellar – White gold shimmer.
  • Abduction – Chartreuse matte.
  • UFO – Green gold shimmer.
  • Gravitea – Soft tan matte.
  • Martian Soil – A cool mustard matte.
  • Flying Saucer – A turquoise matte.
  • Phone Home – A mauve brown matte.
  • Moon Rock – A forest green metallic with a gold undertone.
  • X-Files – A khaki matte.
  • Ghost OG – A dark khaki green.
  • Area-51 – A rich royal purple matte.
  • Space Cowboy – A cool metallic brown with a pearl shift.
  • Probe – A metallic oil slick with a green shift.
  • Tall Grey – A grey with a blue undertone.
  • Black Hole – A true black matte.

I ordered my palette on 9th November, on pre-order from beauty bay. I expected to have to wait a little while for it, But I was a little frustrated that I didn’t get my palette until 07th December. You know when you are so excited for a product and you see other people using it but can’t yourself, it’s frustrating. But beauty bay did stay in touch to say they will be getting them in soon with was nice.

The palette is £46.00, Karma and Area 51 are £16.00 each.

They are still available now is you are interested:

Makeup Assessments!

In college I had to do a day makeup assessment and an evening makeup assessment as part of my course.

For the day makeup assessment, I had 25 minutes to create the makeup look on my partner. I had to include foundation, brows, eye shadow, mascara, contour, blush, brown eyeliner, bronzer and highlight. All this had to be done in 25 minutes. Beforehand I was really stressed about it, 25 minutes didn’t seem long enough at all, but you would be surprised what you can accomplish when it comes down to it. I managed to do it in 20 minutes and had 5 minutes to tidy anything up and make sure everything looked good.

We had to do the hair, outfit and makeup for the assessment to create the entire look. I am happy with how my day makeup turned out, I got 100% which is a Distinction.

For my evening assessment I had 50 minutes to complete the makeup look on my partner. I had to include foundation, contour, bronzer, blusher, highlighter, brows, eye shadow, mascara, lashes and lipstick to compete the criteria for the look. I made sure I did the eyebrows and eyes first, so the lashes had time to dry, because my teacher lightly pulled on the lashes to ensure they are on properly.

Before the assessment I felt a lot more relaxed because we had double the amount of time to create the look. We had to have an outfit and hair ready for the assessment to create an overall look of a night out. During the assessment I felt like time suddenly went really fast, I started with the eyes and spent a lot of time on the eyes and eyebrows compared to the rest of the face. Eyelashes went on quite well, a lot better than I thought they would. I got 100% on this assessment too which is a distinction.

I am really happy with how both my day and evening assessment looks turned out.
