I have been a huge fan of Bobbi Brown for over 17 years and fell in love with the brand. I used to work for Bobbi in Nottingham, (I was trained by them in London too.) I am a little obsessed! I loved getting a tweet from Bobbi herself....
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 [...]
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 [...]
I love writing, it enables me to talk about my make-up, (I can talk forever about this subject!). So I am so grateful that Laura, (the Editor) allows me artistic license over my column. In my August column I talk about one of the Summer catwalk trends - "Barefaced beauty." How scary does that sound?! But why are we so insecure about our looks these days? I have included some photos of my beautiful Mum. One when she was younger and [...]
Wedding season is in full flow and I have been so busy with bridal/wedding make-up trials and make-up lessons. I often get asked to do make-up lessons for ladies that are getting married abroad, I have done quite a few of these just lately, so I have updated my make-up lesson package accordingly. I suppose it all started off when Kate Middleton got married and surprised everyone by not having a make-up artist, as she did her own make-up on [...]
I recently had the pleasure of working at the stunning Stoke Rochford hall in Grantham for a wedding. I love travelling and working as a make-up artist. Not only do I get to see lots of beautiful venues but I get to work with such lovely people too. I always love receiving my thank-you letters afterwards! The brief given for this wedding was glamorous, so I knew I could really go for it with the make-up. Bridy wanted "Hollywood inspired glamour" so [...]
Wedding season is in full swing and this weekend is busy, busy. I am so lucky, I get to meet such lovely people and work in such beautiful venues too! This weekend I have had 3 weddings on. Last weekend I had the pleasure of working at The White Heather. Crystal has got married abroad and had her reception here, so I went to do her make-up for her. I had met Crystal about 5 years ago when she [...]
