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 [...]
Just thought I would write a quick post about products I love to use on myself - Bobbi Brown moisturising balm SPF 25, Becca skin perfector, Illamasqua highlighter in Gleam, Anastasia Brow wizz, Bobbi Brown cream eyeshadows and gel liner, Max Factor mascara, Bobbi Brown bronzer and blush, Bobbi Brown lip pencil, lip colour and lip gloss.
Enquiries have been coming in thick and fast and I am very busy at the moment with wedding make-up trials, for Brides, bridesmaids and Mother of the Brides, etc!

But to quote Bobbi Brown, "All it takes is the right tools, products and a bit of knowledge." Most ladies haven't a clue about make-up, afterall, we [...]
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 [...]
This was from a photoshoot which I did recently with the lovely Charlotte Hay from Stella and Alf. We went for a grungy/60's inspired look. For make-up I first applied a primer to keep the make-up on then added a vitamin enriched face base by Bobbi Brown. I then applied their new Long-wear even finish foundation in Porcelain and concealed underneath the eye area, then set with some loose powder. Next I defined the eyebrows using a Louise Young [...]
