nubo white diamond ice glow mask

NuBo White Diamond Ice-glow mask

I was kindly sent some samples from NuBo and was impressed with what I discovered about the brand (being described as "Pro-beauty high-tech skincare). This particular product has had rave reviews by beauty editors, so I was intrigued to say the least. The packaging is very expensive looking with the diamond encrusted lid, however, for £100 (!) this does need to look the business I feel! I have very dry skin so using something moisturizing is a must.  The cream looked and [...]

L'occitane immortelle precious night cream


L'Occitane Immortelle Precious cream - (£42 for 50 ml.) I love using anything by this brand, although I think this is their star product.  My skin looks its best after using this cream, it is wonderfully hydrating and smells gorgeous too.  My skin is more radiant and youthful looking after using this, any fines lines are less apparent without a doubt so I will definately keep using this! 5/5

Sienna X cream to powder bronzer with illuminator

Sienna X

This duo offers a matte bronzer and highlighter, so great to add a bit of warmth to the skin and is not too orange so looks natural, it has a lovely consistency and is easily blended into the skin, I found working with it best with my fingers applied on the forehead, cheekbones, nose penis enlargement without pills and chin.  You then apply the illumninator on the high points of the face, however,  I found the highlighter not very light reflective and [...]

Heres to 2013!

I am also [...]

Collin Resultime.

I kindly got sent a mini-facial kit from Collin Resultime, and so set to work using it recently. Jessica Biel is a big fan of this Parisian skincare brand who specialise in anti-ageing products. I was impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the packaging too.  I particularly liked the deep cleansing scrub, eye cream and both of the moisturisers - my skin was left smoother and more I loved pampering myself!  I would definatley recommend these products to [...]

Cat eye make-up

Cat eye make-up look.

First I tweezed Jessicas' brows and then applied a cream eyeshadow all over the eye area in Shore.  I then applied a mixture of Burnt sugar and Sable eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes, blending really well.  I also created a higher socket line by applying mahogany eyeshadow above the eye socket crease.  I then defined the brows slightly by filling in with eyeshadow.  Next I used an eyeliner brush by Shu Uemura, which was perfect for this [...]

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!!

Halloween make-up by Tina Brocklebank

Halloween make-up

I am so inspired by Sam and Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo fame - and I am addicted to their tutorials!  However, as I have an art background and was trained at the London C0llege of Fashion it is something that is in me and I LOVE anything that involves make-up and art, I do love my bridal work but my heart lies with Fashion/body painting/photographic make-up. I absolutely love Halloween so it was a prime excuse to do something [...]

November – Journal article (Foundations), by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist.

Becca shimmering skin perfector

Becca shimmering skin perfector

Becca shimmering skin perfector - I have been a huge fan of this wonder product for a very long time.  I have just purchased the new shade "Moonstone" and used to have "Opal."  As my skin is naturally fair I personally prefer to add warmth to my skin and I find that Opal is actually better for this, Moonstone is infact a mixture of Pearl and Opal.  I still love this product and love the packaging too, which comes [...]
