Great Day at Nikki Beach with the Lipstick and YH Teams.

What an honour and fantastic privilege it is to be working with the guys at Nikki Beach Dubai. We just absolutely love being a part of “Amazing Sundays’. This is something that happens all over the world from Monaco, Greece to Ibiza at Nikki because.

Now it is settle in Dubai after opening earlier this year, time to get with the programme and jump on board.

What a way to spend you Sunday, chilling in an amazing location with fantastic people doing what we love.

The them is Native American Indian so goes with the whole style of Nikki Beach with the teepees as their logo.

Everyone got involved and participated in having their make up done in the style, even the saxophonist and the staff loved it.

It was our first week there and I could not think of a better way to work. Seriously, it really isn’t like working, its like being on holiday talking and having a laugh with people.

Just have a look at the pictures, they speak for themselves.

The Lipstick Make up teams did a great job creating a bespoke design for each person but then again thats part of the fun using your creativity and being able to explore the wonderful world of make up. ! Check out theses pictures, they just speak for them selves.

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 3

 

Get the best from the App Perfect 365 tip 3 on day number 3 of my secrets to achieving that flawless  look.

Lips

This is a wonderful too. The Deepen smile tool is great for enlarging our smile.

Whiten Teeth tool is fabulous if the light has not quite managed to hit them and make them dazzle so this tool will! But once again, don’t over do it. If your teeth are normally extremely white then its ok but if they are just a shade lighter then just gently use this tool.

The Lipstick tool is great to add a bit of colour to make your smile appear brighter and also the teeth as red lipstick will always make the teeth appear whiter. The only problem with this tool is that the mouth has to be kind of centre to the picture as it pre set to the app so if your face is  not centred and you add the Lipstick tool you might end up with a moth shaped lipstick on your cheek!

Contouring tool 

I love this tool, If you have just been shot at the wrong angle and your face looks slightly plump then you can slim it down with the slim face tool.

You can lift your cheeks too but don’t do it too much as we will look silly if our cheek are right under our eyes and they are not usually!

My favourite tool in the contouring is Enhance The Nose Tool. It casts a shadow which can slim the nose and cover bumps and lumps we don’t want to see. I have a small bone on the left side of my nose which is prominent when I turn to the side and I dislike it so this tool disguises it. Tool, I love you!!!!!!The sample is a pictures taken in the morning last November when my nephews and nieces were visiting.

Here are a few examples of where these tools are perfect.

Example one now look at example 2 the skin looks so fresh and smooth without being over done! You can see that I don’t look so tired. I love this tool!! I also opened my eyes a little bit as they seem smaller when you smile.

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 2

Tip Number 2 on how to get the best from your APPS.

We are still on Perfect 365.

This app is just so incredibly flattering its very addictive, as I said yesterday its just like having a make up artist in your phone. Now, I find it difficult to NOT use it! But i just have that kind of personality, VAIN Ha

On this app I use the tools for , skin, eyes,  lips and contouring tools.

Today I am going to talk about the skin and Eyes tools and tomorrow the Lips and Contouring tools.

Skin tool

I us the Brighten Tool and the  soften skin tool, it removes blemishes. I find this better than the blemish tool. The only problem is that people just over do it and I cannot stress enough that, Less is More! I see images on Facebook all the time and people look absolutely flawless and like they have just been airbrushed to the MAX! Its too much guys. Gently does it. We are Not Plastic people!

Eyes tool

I use the Circle tool, which is fabulous is you are looking slightly tired and its difficult to overdo this tool as it doesn’t really allow you too.

The Brighten tool which brightens the whites of the eyes but be very careful as its so easy to overdo.

Finally the Enlarge tool. Sometimes we squint on images especially if we have a big smile on our faces so this will make our eyes appear very small so this tool is perfect but once again do not overdo it as themes are a major feature on our faces and if you alter too much then it will not look like you, you will just look weird!

Here are a few examples of GENTLE Editing, nothing too extreme.

The one of me with the sunglasses on is a PERFECT example of very

gentle editing but can see that it kind of gives you that polished look.

SECRET number 8: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

Well the best secret ever and always is the best tip I can give you all.

ALWAYS shoot from above!

When i train photographers in the studio. I get them to do a shoot and I edit their shots and I can tell immediately from looking at the image the mistakes and the classic one is that they always shoot from below and shoot upwards. Now unless you are a supermodel and are creating a Vogue front cover then this is not going to work with the average person.

Doing  this will always always give the person a fat chin, neck and fat everything unless they are super skinny!

I am always conscious of this and its not such a bad thing as pictures are always memories! You will hide any double chin or any imperfections of the neck! It in fact makes you stretch the neck out so giving the impression it is longer than it is and also with gravity makes your wrinkles push back and stretches the skin on the face making you look younger! TRY IT, it really works!
