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.

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 [...]
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 [...]
