Bobbi Brown Pro

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 [...]

Halloween make-up by Tina Brocklebank

Halloween make-up

I am so inspired by Sam and Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo fame - www.pixiwoo.com and I am addicted to their tutorials!  However, as I have an art background and was trained at the London C0llege of Fashion it is something that is in me and I LOVE anything that involves make-up and art, I do love my bridal work but my heart lies with Fashion/body painting/photographic make-up.

Ice-cream van shoot

I recently did a photo-shoot with the lovely Charlotte Hay who is a Fashion stylist and we wanted a really edgy-60's inspired look.  So I used Bobbi Brown foundation in Porcelain and then used lots of black eyeshadow mixed with vaseline, then added black gel liner and smudged really well to create a smokey eye.  I then used Porcelain concealer on the lips!  Photography by Ellis Wood.
