Happy Friday!



I've had many requests lately to see how I create my hair and make-up looks on the blog. Today's video is all about two of the key Lady Melbourne looks and how you can achieve them. It is simpler than you might think!

The amazing necklace I'm wearing in the video is from My Sweet Muse and you can check out all of Eva's designs and more at her etsy shop.

Faux Fuchsia said...

Love your bun - tres chic :)

ruby slippers said...

i LOVE this post!! i only used liquid eyeliner for the first time a couple of days ago because it freaks me out a bit, but you've made it look so easy!

the bun is gorgeous too.. my hair is very thin and long, but i will do the backcombing and hope it makes this full bun possible :)

Rheann said...

Absolutely love the necklace! So eye-catching & gorgeous.

pretty face said...

Thanks. One question, when you put the liquid eyeliner under your eyes, do you put it on the rims of your eye, i.e. above the eyelashes, or under the eyelashes? I couldn't really tell from the video.

As a trained make up artist, you have totally put me to shame with your technique and how swift you are in your application. Wow I love the cats eye and it used to be my signature look and I could never do it as quickly as you. Go girl. Your videos are rocking too

Lani said...

Love the video, LM. Am going to rock the bun at an upcoming garden wedding.

Would love to hear more about what some of your everyday 'base' makeup items / looks. Your makeup always looks so fresh, natural and polished. :)

Elise said...

Great segment. So no kohl on the top, just the bottom - was that right?

Anna-Maria said...

Loved the tips thanks, I have been doing my hair that way for the weekend.

Just can't get the liquid eyeliner thing...

Jess said...

Hi Lady Melbourne,

First of all thanks for the tutorial, it was fantastic!
I am just wondering what the name is of the product you have used on your lips for this video? I have been after a similar colour for a while to no luck.

Thanks!
Jess
