Make-up lessons…

I work with so many lovely ladies and it really is an honour to be able to help someone look and feel their best, (yes, it sounds cheesy but I mean it!) Its such a confidence boost when not only do you look good, but you FEEL good! the 2 go hand in hand! I know all too well! If I don't wear any make-up, I do feel quite low! make-up is such a powerful tool and when used [...]

Review for Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist

My make-up columns and make-up lessons…

I am very lucky to be a columnist for The Lincoln Journal and The Lincolnshire Journal magazines, (I also write columns for The Wedding Journal too.)My most recent column in The Wedding Journal is talking about why you should book a Pro make-up artist on your wedding day.  Here's a snippet, "Weddings are a time of celebration and happiness and I am always honoured to be a part of someones' special day.  When choosing a Make-up artist, you can't [...]

Bridal Musings and Claire Pettibone…

How to treat/camouflage dark circles…

One of the most common concerns for the ladies that I meet are dark circles.  Dark circles are different to an eye bag, and eye bag is a "sag" and no amount of make-up can conceal this, (I will blog about this hopefully on a later date.)  There may be different causes for the dark circles, one could be hereditary even.  All is not lost, as we have my secret weapon of choice...make-up!Firstly, you do have to make sure [...]

Make-up kit cleaning time again!

The glamorous life of a Professional Make-up artist…

It's that time again! I am very mindful about keeping my make-up kit and brushes all sanitised and clean.  So, when you book a Professional make-up artist, take into consideration not just the time she puts into applying your make-up but also replying to e-mails, cleaning and stocking up her make-up kit and brushes not to mention her experience and portfolio.  This sets the professionals apart from the amateurs, thus is reflected in their pricing.Between clients, my brushes and [...]
