Hello, I'm Mavarine Du-Marie, and am currently undertaking a Makeup Artists (MUA) course.
In addition, from my own experience, I've been applying cosmetic makeup from 1977 to date, and keeping up with the latest products. And I've found that my makeup style has evolved to be the 'Modern Glamour' look which I specialise in, hence this blog's creation to share with others who have the same passion.
I am a member of the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC).
The opinions stated in this blog are simply that: my own opinions on products. Your own experiences may well be different. I will always be 100% honest with regards to my experience of a product and my thoughts on makeup technqiues. However, remember, everyone's skin is different in texture, and what works for me, may not work for you, therefore I am not responsible for any adverse reactions you may have after trying a product I have reviewed. Please remember that I am doing this for the love of make up and blogging takes a good amount of time so I do this because I enjoy it.
“The makeup is simply an extension of the personality. And colors, clothing, makeup, all express something.” ~ Gene Simmons
“We know grooming is important for people. To get their hair done, to get makeup, and things like that. That makes a person feel better.”

“Whether you are sixteen or over sixty, remember, understatement is the rule of a fine makeup artist.” ~ Helena Rubinstein
"The most beautiful thing in the world is, precisely, the conjunction of learning and inspiration. Oh, the passion for research and the joy of discovery!"
