Make-Up Lessons

Tina Mum.

The Journal magazine.

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 [...]

Luxury bridal make-up lessons –

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 [...]

Wedding make-up at Stoke Rochford hall, Grantham…

  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 [...]

Meltproof Bridal/wedding day make-up by Tina Brocklebank.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Bridal/wedding Make-up artist training in Lincolnshire…

I had the pleasure last week, of doing some Bridal/wedding make-up training for a budding Make-up artist, Emma Knight.  Emma came all the way from Suffolk to train with me and apparently has been a fan of my work for the past 2 years!  Emma has trained with the fantastic Pixiwoo and wanted more of a specialised make-up training in the art of Bridal/wedding make-up.  It was a full day!  We started at 9.30 am and after discussing the [...]
