Bridal and Wedding

Knowsley Hall, Liverpool

Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist – wedding make-up season!

Well, since my last blog I have been flat out!  Since the body painting shoot its been make-up lesson after make-up lesson and lots of bridal make-up trials and then weddings every weekend...I need a make-over myself! Saying that, I am really happy at the moment, as I am lucky working with such great people and getting to see such beautiful venues.  I was lucky to work at the stunning Knowsley Hall in Liverpool recently, (Gary Barlow had turned up [...]

Beautiful before and after makeup.

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 [...]

January make-up, etc…

I have been asked to write for The Lincoln Journal, so I am very happy to announce I shall be writing a regular monthly column for them, alongside my Lincolnshire Journal column, which will be totally different.  I will be doing a "Look of the month" feature in the Lincoln one and the Lincolnshire one will be focusing more on trends and what I have been up to, and what I recommend product wise. I have been extremely busy so [...]

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

Well, 2014 is drawing to an end, and what a year it has been...where has it gone?!  I have met some wonderful people this past year and had the pleasure of working with some great people too. I am really looking forward to relaxing over Christmas with my family...and taking time out to try out some new make-up of course! Next year looks to be another very busy one for me, there's very limited availability now, with bookings being taken for [...]

Bridal Couture shoot, Make-up by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist.

Recently I have had the pleasure of working with wonderful creative people.  I worked with the amazing Joanna Chafer of Joanna-Leigh Couture in Brigg, and my goodness, her designs are second to none and the attention to detail is astonishing! Siana Hemmings was our beautiful model for the day, (Miss Lincolnshire) and I think you will agree, she looks amazing and is such a professional lady to work with, (and very funny too!) Our inspiration was of course Joannas' beautiful gowns [...]

Make-up artist – my new make-up kit must haves!

Well, straight back into work mode from my holiday in Greece and its been full on! I've been working on an exciting new shoot coming soon, for a very talented Bridal couture designer and I can't wait to be able to tell you all about it and show you the photos...watch this space! I have also been updating my kit, (yes, I am addicted.)  Although I use mainly Bobbi Brown for my clients, I also like sampling new products and I [...]
