The Online Makeup School Is Live!
OK, so here we go. I have (had) a giant bruise on my upper lip and thought why not take a purple, mustache shaped lemon, and make some delicious concealer flavoured lemonade? I use this concealer technique more often than I would like to – I must sleep walk or something because I am constantly finding mysterious bruises on my appendages. So today I’m showing you how to cover a dirty big bruise, using makeup you probably already own – no specialist colour correctors here.
But I suppose I should address the elephant in the room – why do I have a giant bruise on my face in the first place? Well….*deep breath… I only went and got my bloody lips done. It’s something I have been thinking of doing for years, and if you have been watching my videos for any length of time, that should come as no surprise – I overdraw my lips in about 90% of my tutorials . I will be writing about my lip injection experience in greater detail after I get back from the wedding, and I have some decent before and after pics (I’m still a little swollen), so if you have any questions about it, let me know and I’ll try and answer them for you.
Here are some bullet points though
I am delighted with the results and have no regrets
I researched my doctor for months, and am so happy to have found Dr Naomi, a fellow blogger, incredible injection specialist and all round lovely person
I am very swollen in this video so please please be kind and understand that I’m quite fragile about this right now so don’t judge just yet.
