Its not often I post photos of my daughter, but I just had to recently! It was her Prom day recently and I was just so proud of her, I wanted to show her off to the world!It is a well-known fact, that at this age, teenagers can suffer with bad skin and a few spots here and there.  Alisha has completely mastered the art of concealing her little blemishes.  She has a great skincare routine, but despite all [...]

Sisley Self tanning

I often get asked how long it takes me to do my make-up, (it depends on what time I have and what I need that day!)Skin prep is very important to me, so making sure I use the right moisturiser for my skin, (depending on the time of year and my skins needs.)  As I am getting older, my skin is more dry and I feel like I need a bit of a glow! so I always opt for [...]

Pretty, natural bridal make-up…

I love this photograph of the beautiful Rebecca.  When Rebecca came to see me we discussed all options regarding her Bridal make-up look.  Rebecca doesn't wear much make-up as is a Dr (and a Mother now!)  Rebecca is blessed with lovely skin so I didn't have to use too much foundation or concealer, but I did use a small amount of each where needed.  I always prefer to use less than more, and I love to be able to [...]
