Wedding make-up on myself.

Wedding make-up.

I had the pleasure of attending my niece's wedding yesterday and on myself I decided to opt for a smoky eye look and nude lips.  I was wearing a Topshop green dress and so wanted something a little dramatic to compliment it. I had prepped and had a bit of a tan with my beloved Sisley fake tan, I then covered any imperfections with my Nars tinted moisturiser and Bobbi Brown foundation stick, I don't tend to use powder as [...]

Burghley house wedding, Stamford.

I love travelling around the U.K, working on various weddings and yesterday I had the honour of visiting beautiful Stamford.  I had no idea what a great place it is to visit! It was the gorgeous Rachael's wedding and she was getting married at the very majestic, Burghley house.  It is huge!  I had to do her wedding make-ups at The George in Stamford, which is a gorgeous old hotel, with lots of character, great food and amazing staff, I took [...]

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 [...]

Make-up lessons galore and a Happy new year to you all!xxx

I have been inundated recently with requests for make-up lessons.  From Mothers who are at their wits ends from their daughters contouring habits, Husbands who have been constantly asked for a make-up lesson with me and also from ladies requiring help with applying their own make-up - we are never taught at school are we!! I believe this should be part of the curriculum!  Make-up is such a powerful tool. Christmas has been a very busy period for me and [...]
