Blog Makeover!

Right then people, brace yourselves! This blog is going to be dragged kicking and screaming into the realm of sleek beautiful and articulate blogs if it kills me!

I am armed with tutorials aimed at turning blogger blogs into works of art, so please bear with me while I fight with html code!

I will hopefully be back soon and in the meantime if anyone has any expertise in this area I would be grateful for all the help I can get!

I've Hit 2000 Subscribers!

I am so excited to have over 2000 lovely subscribers now! Thank you all so much for your loyalty and support, it means so much to me :)

Of course you know this means that a contest is on the cards! I'm in the process of putting prizes together for it.

I will have the usual comment contest, but as well as that I want to do something a bit more interactive, so am trying to decide on whether to have a make-up tutorial contest of some kind or something completely different.

I will announce prizes as soon as I've decided what to do, and will also be posting a video.

I'm also in the process of compiling names for a share the love video, so if you know of an up and coming channel that deserves a mention then let me know :)

Oh my goodness has it really been that long since I last posted :/

I keep picking up this blog then putting it back down again, I think I just have so much going on that sometimes it's a struggle to keep up with it all.

Thank you to all of you who are still following me, I will go through phases where I post on here I promise guys!
Anyway, I came on here to show you a nail colour that I'm loving, while everyone else is rocking spring pastels, I for some reason felt drawn towards this:

Midnight Ride by China Glaze

I will definitely be pulling out my spring colours soon though so watch this space =)

Blog Sale Coming Up!!

So I posted a video asking whether I should do a Blog Sale or not and got lots of replies saying I should go for it! So today I will start pulling out the items I want to sell, then tomorrow (Friday) I will put up the sale.

I'll post a quick video to let you know when the sale is live, so keep a look out for that if you are interested =)

My New Art Project...

So some of you know that I do Graphic Design, for example I made the lipstick writing my name that appears in my videos intro.

I also do digital portraits, basically I start with a blank document and create it from scratch, it takes around 12-14 hours to do each one but I love doing it.

I have decided to start a project creating digital portraits of some of the Gurus that I really like and admire, I'm not doing them in any particular order, I'm just seeing who is inspiring me at that moment and going for it =)

The first one is now completed, and it's DulceCandy87, here it is (you can click on it to enlarge):

And then I created a larger artwork from it (again, click to enlarge):

I hope you like it! I am working on the second one already and I already know who the next 3 are going to be. I don't know how many I will do in total, I guess I'll keep going until I don't want to do it any more.

Do you think this would make a good prize for a contest? For me to do a portrait of the winner (or their pet/child)? Maybe as a first prize and then make-up for other prizes (as it takes so many hours to do). Please let me know what you think!


Major Haulage coming up!

Hi everyone, I have some MAC and NYX products to swatch and post, I'll do it as soon as possible, I just received a huge NYX order and am so so pleased with the products!

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who is following me and thank you for all your comments! I really want to reply to your comments, especially those of you who have asked questions...however for some reason my account won't use my 'latinainglesa' username, it uses my real name!

I don't mind people seeing my real name, but it is confusing as when I reply sometimes people don't realise it's me! I need to get this sorted and once I do then I can reply to all your lovely comments =)

I haven't forgotten about my 1000 subs contest, I am still collecting prizes for it!
