Body painting by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist – Stroke UK

I was approached by the charity Stroke UK to do a body painting for them for #MayMayPurple campaign.  I jumped at the chance as I love body painting and had been yearning to do another one, as I hadn't done one for years.   Obviously, the theme was purple, so I know I had to incorporate that into the design.  I didn't just want to paint anything basic, like a t-shirt with the logo on, I wanted to go all [...]

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 [...]

Organic glam review –

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 [...]

silk fibre brows

Product reviews…

Silk fibre brows - £19.99.  Brows are definitely "the thing" at the moment, the more natural looking the better too.  I am always on the look-out for a great brow product as I opted for the Kate Moss "Biba" brow many years ago sadly, hence, my brows have never been the same since and I have to shade them in.  When I opened this bottle, my first impression was not good, the applicator was far too big I felt [...]
