A quick update!…

I haven't been able to update my blog for a while, as I have been so busy with bookings.  I am going to do a more in-depth blog as soon as I can!Since my last blog I have been working flat out with make-up lessons, weddings, shoots and make-up trials.  I have also taken on lots of bookings for 2016 and 2017 too, (try not to be too late booking, as I have had to turn away lots of [...]

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 [...]

Tina Mum.

The Journal magazine.

I love writing, it enables me to talk about my make-up, (I can talk forever about this subject!).  So I am so grateful that Laura, (the Editor) allows me artistic license over my column.In my August column I talk about one of the Summer catwalk trends - "Barefaced beauty."  How scary does that sound?! But why are we so insecure about our looks these days?I have included some photos of my beautiful Mum.  One when she was younger and [...]
