A fun day making up my friend Roberta Marquez, principal dancer at the Royal Ballet resulted in this dramatic, Bollywood/Arab/Classic Ballet make-up mash up! Hanging out in Roberta’s predominantly pink dressing room backstage is like being in a little girls dream….. right down to the pink TV and Audrey Hepburn videos. Hope you enjoy it X

I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.

I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.

I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.



  1. This was lovely to watch… I agree with you on how every little girl thinks of being a ballerina at least once when they are little. I did dance, but only because I got costumes at towards recital time! Haha! I was the worst dancer ever… XD I liked the costumes.. That was it. Class was over I was like "PEACE!"

  2. Lisa at one point commented that as a makeup artist she has done work for drag queens. I feel like on her channel this is the closest we'll get to seeing her do drag makeup. Love this look.

  3. Only some gentle critique, the use of highly-reflective eyeshadow across the whole lid, including the crease colors, was kind of a bad idea, I'd suggest using only mattes in the crease, and then a highly reflective shadow on the browbone and mobile lid, this creates a stronger, more defined crease, and adds depth and dimension to the face, which is sorely needed under the lights of the brilliant opera house. Also the black liner under the eye CLOSES the eye on stage rather than opening it. I suggest using matte eyeshadows as well for this, in dark brown shades, then blending it out quite well, adding some lower lashes and using white eyeliner, I prefer a gel formula for this because it lasts longer and is more resistant to oil, to fill in the space between the false lower lashes and the actual eye, as well as popping it in the waterline. I like adding circle lenses because on stage there's no such thing as too drag queen. Also the body gems you added will look like tears on stage from a distance, especially with a stage that size that has so much light being cast on it. Personally I would've used the gems for Odette, not a generally pleasantly happy princess like Aurora. You might also wanna bring the contour up a little higher on the cheeks, so the rest of her jaw will look proportionate to her cheekbones, a contour so low will make her look sunken and sort of corpse-like. All in all this is a beautiful artistic representation but unfortunately not a practical stage look. Still gorgeous though <3 no hate just constructive criticism.
