Make-Up Lessons

Me with Alisha on her prom makeup trial.

My daughter, Acne and Roaccutane.

If you follow me on social media you may remember I had posted about Alisha suffering with acne - she’s really been through it the past few years! We have literally tried everything! Because she’s been through so much, we thought it would be a good idea to share her acne journey to help other people and share her experience, as others who had been through it had helped her too, (special thanks to Lucy McGuire.  Also Nadine Baggott [...]

The gorgeous Lindsey. Make-up by Tina Brocklebank.

Wedding/bridal make-up

I had the pleasure of being the lovely Lindsey's Make-up artist today, for her wedding today at The Brackenborough hotel, Louth.  Lindsey had booked me well in advance, about 2 years prior to her wedding day as she was set on me being her Make-up artist, so I was very flattered! Lindsey loves make-up and so I wasn't afraid to go to work, and really accentuate her lovely features. She has lovely skin and I like to really let the skin [...]

Beautiful before and after make-up.

Problem skin and my secret weapons of choice…

Problem skin and secret weapons... I have the pleasure of being able to meet and help so many people of all ages, each with varying skin dilemmas and concerns. One of the most upsetting is acnified/blemished skin. I know first hand how this can affect one’s confidence. I suffered mildly as a teenager and now my 16 year old daughter is suffering with it too. Being a Make-up artist helps greatly, as I can advise exactly what products can help with concealing [...]

Alisha, Prom make-up.

Prom make-up…

Its not often I post photos of my daughter, but I just had to recently! It was her Prom day recently and I was just so proud of her, I wanted to show her off to the world! It is a well-known fact, that at this age, teenagers can suffer with bad skin and a few spots here and there.  Alisha has completely mastered the art of concealing her little blemishes.  She has a great skincare routine, but despite all [...]

Tina

Tina (smoky eye day look.)

I often get asked how long it takes me to do my make-up, (it depends on what time I have and what I need that day!) Skin prep is very important to me, so making sure I use the right moisturiser for my skin, (depending on the time of year and my skins needs.)  As I am getting older, my skin is more dry and I feel like I need a bit of a glow! so I always opt for [...]

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 [...]
