Focus On: Make up tips 2

We’re lucky to have Ash back for a third time. This tutorial is all about how to perfectly create that staple, the red lip using just three products: first up, the 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil from our personal favorite make up brand, Urban Decay. Secondly we have a Brick Lip Pencil from MAC and finally MAC’s Ruby Woo Lipstick. Sit back and enjoy, Ash knows her stuff.



Focus on: Make up tips

Hello there everyone, we’ve teamed up once more with Ash Caywood from Luxed – this time in video(!) format – to bring you some make up tips and tutorials. Firstly, now that the good weather seems to, finally, be here to stay, Ash explains how to create a popping coral glossy lip using ColorBurst balm from Revlon that is perfect for any summer’s day.



And secondly, Ash gives us a full make over inspired by Emma Stone’s look at the recent Met Gala, showing how to make your skin glow together with a subtle smokey eye combined with a rosy, nude lip.



Video entries is something new that anamericaninwesport is trying and we intend to add a few more over the course of the year. We hope you enjoy them.


As an adjunct to this, it seems that people often underestimate the impact of hair and make up, which seems a shame to us and so we also decided to do a quick before and after showing just how much of a transformation hair and make up can be. There has been no retouching or changing of lights in this shot, it’s all down to the skill artistry of the make up artist and hair stylist. A good make up artist will sculpt with the contours of the face to give greater depth and even something as simple as a wave or loose curl to the hair gives it much more vibrancy and life.
