Exciting News: Taylor Swift Makeover with Tanya Burr

I have a confession to make, the last couple of weeks I have been keeping a secret from you guys. A secret that has been bursting to come out. The secret is...I had a Taylor Swift makeover by the talented Make up Artist and YouTuber Tanya Burr! Trust me, it has been difficult not to spill the beans, I wanted tell you all about it straight away, but I thought it was best to wait until the video was up and running so that I could include it here.

I have been watching Tanya's videos and reading her blog for a long time now, so when the opportunity arose to have a makeover by her for the DailyMixTV channel she recently became a host on, I jumped at the chance. It was wonderful to meet her, she was just as lovely in person as she is on screen and most importantly, very chatty, which kept my nerves at ease while having cameras pointed at me. Although this was my first time on screen, I'm not sure I'm a natural on camera! In addition to meeting Tanya, it was also incredibly interesting listening to her tips and watching her choose the products to achieve the look. I especially loved the winged eyeliner, something I have been using most days since. She did a truly amazing job, and I plan to track down some of the products used so that I can recreate the look myself!

Here is the video for my Celebrity Makeover:

The makeover was also a great excuse to have a day out in London! My Boyfriend and I don't usually have much time off work together so it was an incredible luxury having a weekday off to spend as we pleased.  I flaunted the look all around London, feeling like a Celebrity with my immaculate make up! We had a gorgeous Lunch of Bruschetta (my favourite), then took our time walking around shops and taking in the sights. I also made sure we went to Selfridges to check out all of their fantastic counters.

I had a really great time being made over in the style of the gorgeous Taylor Swift, and hugely enjoyed meeting and shooting with the lovely Tanya Burr and the DailyMixTV team!
What does everyone think of the look?
