House of GlamDolls GlamLift Wheel





Developed by House of GlamDolls founder David Horne, the GlamLift wheel contains peach tones to correct and brighten areas of darkness across all skin tones. The wheel contains 5 lifting shades ranging from light to dark and also contains a shimmering copper highlight in the centre. The shade Lift 1 is perfect for me and I use this to knock out the blue tones under my eyes. Due to how pink toned my skin is I can actually get away with using this alone however you may want to apply a skin tone matched concealer on top, my favourite being Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Concealer.

This product is designed for a makeup artists kit as the shade range allows you to work on all skintones, however due to the price I would recommend this just for personal use as it’s great value and you can always get creative with the other shades!

The GlamLift Wheel is £25 for 35g of product and is available here.

Freedom House of GlamDolls Vintage Doll Palette | Review

12248040_1206399972721697_4541421291068435810_oFreedom Makeup and House of GlamDolls have collaborated to bring us four palettes based around 4 looks that contain all the products necessary to create the look. The palettes contain 4 x brow powders, 3 x powder highlighters, 10 x powder eyeshadows, 2 x blushers and 4 x lip colours – all for only £8! Each palette comes with a tutorial showing how to recreate the looks.



Brow powders


(l-r: Taupe, Brunette, Bark and Ebony)

The brow powders are all highly pigmented and have a great shade range allowing you to choose which will best suit your needs. Applied with an angled brush they can be used to create a soft natural brow or a full on defined brow.

Powder highlighters


(l-r: Starlight, Light and Haze)

I think Starlight might be perfect for me! It’s hard for me to find highlighters for my pale pink skin as they often show up or yellow or too dark but Starlight is a lovely white gold shimmer. It’s great that a matte shade is included as well as Haze which will work well on darker skin tones, making it a universal palette.

Shimmer eyeshadows


(l-r: Silverscreen, Delicate, Scarlet, Siren, Vamp and Heroine)

The shadows all have good pigmentation (Vamp could do with being a little stronger but it could come out differently on the eye) and a nice mix of warm and cool colours. Suitable for a range of skin tones.

Matte eyeshadows


(l-r: Pure, Demure, Allure and Jet)

These matte shades work will work perfectly along side the shimmers and I’m very impressed by how pigmented the black is, quite rare for a high street/drugstore brand.



(l-r: Retro and Glamour)

I’m not a fan of wearing blush but these two shades are nice and allow you to opt for a more natural flush or a bold cheek.



(l-r: Flapper, Dark Cherry, Power and Ruby)

These super pigmented glosses will help to finish off your vintage doll perfectly.

The Vintage Doll palette is £8 and available here.

House of GlamDolls GlamBlush Wheel 1 | Review



House of GlamDolls have released a cream blush wheel to work along side their sculpting GlamBase wheels (you can read my review for them here).


(l-r: Strobe, Babyface, Peachy Nudester, Pinch and Dolly)

Strobe is a silver highlight and Babyface could be used as both a highlight and blush. Nudester would be a great shade for sculpting. All shades can be used on both the cheek and lip areas. The shades have a high pigment and are easily to blend meaning they will last you for ages. The GlamBlush wheel is a great addition to any MUAs kit as it offers variety in compact packaging and it’s also good for any makeup enthusiast who likes to change up their blush colour often!

The GlamBlush wheel 1 is £25 for 35g and is available from House of GlamDolls.

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 16.51.44IMG_3394IMG_3396Phee has come out with a limited edition hi-shine silver highlight powder that really packs a punch. As with her other Glow Highlight Powders the pigmentation is amazing and a little goes a long way.

IMG_3384 IMG_3392I’m a little bit obsessed with the colour and love to use it on all the high points of my face to create an icy highlight. It also works amazing as an eyeshadow.

UMAexpo 2015 Vlog

I went to the United Makeup Artists Expo at The Business Design Centre in Islington, London on Saturday and decided to try out vlogging! The expo was great, with lots of discounted brands to shop and interesting talks and demos to watch. It was lovely to see a few friendly faces there too.
