The Makeup Honey

Have a makeover from Sian aka The Makeup Honey

Freelance Makeup Artist

How would you describe your style and who are your style icons?

My style is a bit of everything really. I'm a girly girl nerd and rock/metal enthusiast. My style is a mix of that! I love Taylor Momsens style. If I didn't live in a cold place I would be rocking the short shorts and stockings like she does.

What's in your everyday make-up bag?

At the moment my everyday bag has:
The Balm Time Balm
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light and Universal Glow
Accesorize Baked Blusher - Wowzer
The Balm Bahama Mamma Bronzer
Too Faced LashGasm
Viva La Diva Brow Powder - Blonde
Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow - Champagne
Pierre Rene Single Eyeshadow - Pearl
Grimas Eye Khol

I guess thats my 'go to' products right now but my makeup bag changes depending on new products and freebies I need to test out.

What is your beauty routine like?

My routine changes all the time.

If you could makeover a celebrity, who would it be and what look would you give them?

Interesting question, probably hmm, I don't know. Alexander Skardsgaard or Norman Reedus. Both of them could pull of a manly smokey eye and it would be fun to do. I loved that picture of Norman Reedus in a tutu. I would love to create my own version.

Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?

Just don't be scared to try something new and always remember to only do your makeup to please you and you alone.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I role play with my partner and friends, the board game style not the kinky style. We play a lot of board games, think D&D style. I spend a lot of my spare time gamine, online games, console games, PC games even iPad games. I am stuck in a world of Sci Fi and Fantasy, I'm just a complete geek really. I also draw/paint a lot as I am a trained artist (background in Fine Art). I also spend a fair amount of time doing makeup related stuff, blogging, making eyelashes, nails etc.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

DO what makes you happy, wear what makes you happy and ignore anyone who thinks makeup is superficial and shallow. Makeup is for the me inside.
