Things have been very hectic for me recently...I have been busy preparing and shooting at the Healing manor, which is a beautiful gem, tucked away in the little village of Healing - http://www.healingmanorhotel.co.uk/ The restaurant here is fantastic and the food and service is great, everyone is so friendly and helpful here. Healing Manor is set in 38 acres + of Lincolnshire countryside and is simply stunning and is being restored back to its glory, having being given the respect it [...]
I recently had the pleasure of working at the stunning Stoke Rochford hall in Grantham for a wedding. I love travelling and working as a make-up artist. Not only do I get to see lots of beautiful venues but I get to work with such lovely people too. I always love receiving my thank-you letters afterwards!The brief given for this wedding was glamorous, so I knew I could really go for it with the make-up. Bridy wanted "Hollywood inspired glamour" so [...]
Wedding season is in full swing and this weekend is busy, busy. I am so lucky, I get to meet such lovely people and work in such beautiful venues too! This weekend I have had 3 weddings on. Last weekend I had the pleasure of working at The White Heather. Crystal has got married abroad and had her reception here, so I went to do her make-up for her. I had met Crystal about 5 years ago when she [...]
I had another very busy weekend last weekend - I also had the pleasure of doing 2 lovely ladies' special occasion make-ups for an evening wedding reception, as she had got married abroad. Kelly wanted a Kim Kardashian look so I knew I could really go for it with the make-up and contouring. I used lots of different products, including Make-up forever, Mac, Bobbi Brown, Louise Young, Tom Ford and Illamasqua, (see photo.) I also used some beautiful false [...]

When ladies book a make-up session with me, more often than not, most ladies are very concerned about their looks. They feel under constant pressure to look good, however, most ladies struggle with where to start with make-up and skincare. This is where I can help them with my 24 years of experience. But to quote Bobbi Brown, "All it takes is the right tools, products and a bit of knowledge." Most ladies haven't a clue about make-up, afterall, we [...]
I am so inspired by Sam and Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo fame - www.pixiwoo.com and I am addicted to their tutorials! However, as I have an art background and was trained at the London C0llege of Fashion it is something that is in me and I LOVE anything that involves make-up and art, I do love my bridal work but my heart lies with Fashion/body painting/photographic make-up. I absolutely love Halloween so it was a prime excuse to do something [...]
