Bridal and Wedding

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 [...]

Lincolnshire Pride magazine, etc.

At the moment, things are very busy - with weddings and make-up lessons.  I also had the pleasure of meeting the lovely people behind Lily Lolo cosmetics this week, which is based in this space!

Its all about "making you look like you...but better".  Sounds cheesy I know, but [...]

February 2013 make-up column in the Journal by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist.

When ladies book a make-up session with me, more often than not, most ladies are very concerned about their looks.  They feel under constant pressure to look good, however, most ladies struggle with where to start with make-up and skincare.  This is where I can help them with my 24 years of experience.   But to quote Bobbi Brown, "All it takes is the right tools, products and a bit of knowledge." Most ladies haven't a clue about make-up, afterall, we [...]

I then used Bobbi Brown eyeshadows and then applyed Shu Uemura false eyelashes. I finished by adding a pop of blush to her cheeks with shimmer brick on her cheekbones, I then applied a pale pink lip colour and [...]
