Girlfriend Rimmel Beauty Insider Competition

Hi everyone!

Soooo one of my favourite magazines ever growing up was Girlfriend Mag, and they're hosting a competition as part of their Rimmel Model Search to win the chance to write a 12-month beauty column for the mag.

Um.

DREAM JOB!!

Entrants had to film a 2-minute makeup tutorial and upload it to YouTube, and I decided to go with a winged eyeliner with plum-shade lips.

I haven't put my lippy on yet in this snapshot :)
So, without further ado.... here's the video!


**Video Description**


"Hi everyone, I'm Jess and this is my entry to the Girlfriend Rimmel Beauty Insider Competition! 

It's a look inspired by the Autumn/Winter fashion runways; a combination of a flirty winged eye with a sophisticated plum lippy :) 

I've been reading Girlfriend since I was in primary school, and have always wanted to write for magazines, so writing beauty columns for the mag that literally taught me how to use make up when I was growing up would be amazing!!"

---


It's my first makeup tutorial video ever, so I apologise if there's any awkwardness haha I'm normally behind the camera! But it was so much fun to make, so I hope you enjoy the tips I shared :)


I would love to know what you think, so let me know either on this post or by sharing the love directly on my YouTube video!

Love and kisses,

Jess xxx
PS: Want to know how I did my ombre nails in the video?

      About the circle lenses, yes you can get them in prescription too :D Best to check with your optom first before giving you the thumbs up that you can wear contacts :)
