Make-up kit and studio

Bobbi Brown pro lip palette, etc

Make-up addict!

Busy week, doing demos at the Grimsby Institute and doing make-up trials too.  I decided to buy the Bobbi Brown Pro Lip palette, (aswell as a few other essentials) for my make-up kit.  This palette is awesome.  Its got a range of 54 shades in it, ranging from very nude/natural to more pinky tones and then more dramatic reds/browns.  I can't wait to use it.  I am also loving using the new Illamasqua masquara in Raven, it is smudge-proof [...]

I will soon be teaching a new Media make-up course at the Grimsby Institute, which starts in September, which I am very proud to [...]

nubo white diamond ice glow mask

NuBo White Diamond Ice-glow mask

I was kindly sent some samples from NuBo and was impressed with what I discovered about the brand (being described as "Pro-beauty high-tech skincare). This particular product has had rave reviews by beauty editors, so I was intrigued to say the least. The packaging is very expensive looking with the diamond encrusted lid, however, for £100 (!) this does need to look the business I feel! I have very dry skin so using something moisturizing is a must.  The cream looked and [...]

L'occitane immortelle precious night cream


L'Occitane Immortelle Precious cream - (£42 for 50 ml.) I love using anything by this brand, although I think this is their star product.  My skin looks its best after using this cream, it is wonderfully hydrating and smells gorgeous too.  My skin is more radiant and youthful looking after using this, any fines lines are less apparent without a doubt so I will definately keep using this! 5/5

Sienna X cream to powder bronzer with illuminator

Sienna X

This duo offers a matte bronzer and highlighter, so great to add a bit of warmth to the skin and is not too orange so looks natural, it has a lovely consistency and is easily blended into the skin, I found working with it best with my fingers applied on the forehead, cheekbones, nose penis enlargement without pills and chin.  You then apply the illumninator on the high points of the face, however,  I found the highlighter not very light reflective and [...]

Collin Resultime.

I kindly got sent a mini-facial kit from Collin Resultime, and so set to work using it recently. Jessica Biel is a big fan of this Parisian skincare brand who specialise in anti-ageing products. I was impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the packaging too.  I particularly liked the deep cleansing scrub, eye cream and both of the moisturisers - my skin was left smoother and more I loved pampering myself!  I would definatley recommend these products to [...]

Aswell as providing a mobile make-up artist service, I am based at my own make-up studio in Lincolnshire.  This is where I do my make-up lessons/make-up trials.  My make-up kit consists of only the best products and tools- Bobbi Brown, MAC, Illamasqua, Make-up Forever, Stila, Cover FX, Becca, Real Techniques, Louise Young, Shu Uemura, etc, etc!! If you require false eyelashes, I prefer to use the full-strip type - Mac, Shu Uemura, Ardell and Eylure.  However, I do have individual false [...]

Becca shimmering skin perfector

Becca shimmering skin perfector

Becca shimmering skin perfector - I have been a huge fan of this wonder product for a very long time.  I have just purchased the new shade "Moonstone" and used to have "Opal."  As my skin is naturally fair I personally prefer to add warmth to my skin and I find that Opal is actually better for this, Moonstone is infact a mixture of Pearl and Opal.  I still love this product and love the packaging too, which comes [...]
