Meltproof Bridal/wedding day make-up by Tina Brocklebank.

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 [...]

Special occasion make-up, etc.

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 [...]

Prom make-up and an update…

I have had a very busy prom season, (see photo of the beautiful Alice Hendry.)  Photo by Gary Davies - www.garydavisphotography.com Alice has got amazing skin anyway, so I just enhanced that and you can see how beautiful and glowing her complexion is.  I also used Mac false lashes here, which always accentuate the eyes beautifully, without looking too obvious.I am half way through the wedding season now, and still lots of bookings and weddings are coming through.  I have lots of bookings for [...]

June make-up column for The Journal magazine, etc.

In my June column this month I talk about how to achieve that lovely, even glow from using the right bronzing products.  It never ceases to amaze me at how many ladies get it wrong, either by having a spray tan that is too dark for them and patchy or going on a sunbed that leaves them red and patchy with uneven areas, also, by using the wrong make-up products to create a bronzed effect.By using minimal products you [...]

Lily Lolo mineral cosmetics…

I am always sent samples to try, whether it be skincare or make-up.  I was intrigued to try the Lily Lolo samples I was sent as the company is based right near me, in Hull...very refreshing to hear!Vikki Khan of Lily Lolo explains,"Women are more demanding of their makeup today - we want more! We want it to be ethically-sourced, treat our skin well and give gorgeous, fresh-looking coverage. I had these demands myself, and not being able to find the [...]

Bridal/wedding Make-up artist training in Lincolnshire…

I had the pleasure last week, of doing some Bridal/wedding make-up training for a budding Make-up artist, Emma Knight.  Emma came all the way from Suffolk to train with me and apparently has been a fan of my work for the past 2 years!  Emma has trained with the fantastic Pixiwoo and wanted more of a specialised make-up training in the art of Bridal/wedding make-up.  It was a full day!  We started at 9.30 am and after discussing the [...]
