Make an impact: Be bold!

Divine House of Make-up: Tutorial #3 Make an impact: Be bold
Welcome to my weekly blog and youtube video:
This week I'll be blogging on making an impact and being bold, after all bold is beautiful! So...If you’re gonna wear makeup, wear makeup.  What I mean by this statement is go all out.  Be bold go for that Lady Danger Red lippy, or that mystic purple from Sleek cosmetics.  Make a statement with your makeup.  Focus on the brows, eyeshadows and lipsticks you choose to wear.  And I give you permission ladies to wear colour! It is very okay and the more you wear colour the more comfortable you will become.  I used to be so afraid of wearing red lipstick because of my skin tone and the day I wore it was when I knew that colour is nothing to be afraid of but rather to be embraced.  And to be honest the right shade of red can look good and flawless on absolutely anyone!  And it’s okay to wear calm and everyday nudes – this is the safe and cute option.  But why not be daring when it comes to an occasion and line your lips first before applying the bold and impactful colour lipstick of your choice.  So the three colours I recommend is a red (of course ruby woo), purple (mystic by sleek), dark brown (opal from Iman).  Always remember to line the lips and conceal to define the shape of the lips.   Sleek cosmetics do fantastic lipliners for £5 and these can be used before applying the lipstick of your choice.  So if it is red lippy you want to use add a red liner, if it’s a nude add a pinky liner.
Until next week and remember you are beautiful!

There's only one product: Make-up secrets revealed

Hi this is Isang from Divine House of Makeup. 
Thanks for joining this weeks’ tutorial, tips and blog.
So this week I want to talk about makeup secrets revealed.  For those of you that don’t like to spend money and like to keep it simple yet flawless to me there is only one product that makes the world of the difference…are you ready for it….C-O-N-C-E-A-L-E-R. C for Concealer. Yes concealer! Ladies and girls this is the product that makes the world of a difference.  I never knew but have found out overtime that concealer is the product that does the job! My concealer that I use is from MAC cosmetics.  I use two toners lighter than my foundation shade but you can use the same shade – I use a lighter one to highlight my brows which will be shown in another tutorial.  Concealer can be used as I said to highlight the brows, also I tend to use it under the eyes and as the name states it conceals! So to brighten up the eyes or any part of the face concealer is to be used! As well as that I use concealer to highlight the T-zone and contour. Moreover, I use concealer to give definition and shape to my lips and to ensure the curvature and shape of the lips is strictly defined.  So if you see a lady who is flawless in her makeup it’s probably due to this product of concealer.  There are many out there but as I say MAC pro concealer longwear and you can also purchase their pallettes for a range of shades and tones – for me are the best buy.  Once the concealer is applied you can go over this with your usual liquid/mousse foundation – I use NARS (Maybelline matte mousse) radiant cream compact foundation for that radiant glow! And walah! There you have your base concealed with a layer of foundation.  So here you can see I used two products! Yes only two products! Concealer and Foundation.  So recap, well there isn’t really a recap, just conceal under the eyes, around the pencilled brows the lip line and blend blend blend with your usual foundation.  So I will see you next week for more tips, tutorials and blogs.  Lots of love Divine House of Makeup.

Six week series of blogs and youtube tutorials:

  1. What people won’t tell you –skincare and hygiene

This is the BEGINNING of a weekly series in conjunction with my youtube video: - playlist SKIN IS IN

Details of what I use will be in the text below.  And do feel free to subscribe. 


So today is called SKIN IS IN SKIN IS IN! – What people won’t tell you and it’s a tutorial in skincare and hygiene.


What do I mean by SKIN IS IN? Ladies and girls you have to take care of your skin.  It is the first thing that people see and it is the canvas for makeup artistry which will be shown over the next few weeks.  So how do I take care? Keep it simple and use a bit of tlc on you face.  Exfoliate, scrub, use a face wash. 

Personally, I use Neutrogena (mask and face wash), twice daily.

I then scrub twice monthly using St. Ives Apricot face scrub.

And every now and then go for a facial (Sofitel Hotel or Colaz)

Also, touch your face less.  When you touch your face you transfer bacteria from wherever your hands were previously (transfer of bacteria).  Take care! You look more beautiful with makeup on when you have great looking, healthy skin.  And be consistent in your moisturiser: it can be anything from Vaseline to simple to a body butter but make sure that your skin is moisturised and hydrated.  If this is not the case it will show and to all the young ladies out there it will show up later on in life.  So moisturise in a circular motion all the way down to your neck and down to the top of your chest.  I absolutely love Monica, the artist – her makeup looks flawless every time and it’s probably due to great flawless skin underneath.


So just to recap: exfoliate, scrub, use a facewash, mask, get a facial once in a while this will help to attain the flawless look when makeup is actually applied and moisturise. So thanks for reading and watching this is really the introduction to the 6-week series of my makeup tutorials and blogs and I will see you all next Wednesday lots of love DHM.
