After working in this industry for such a long time, you would think I would get a bit complacent about things, but I never do. I still love to receive thank-you letters and feedback from the lovely people I have the pleasure of meeting and working with. I have a huge folder full of thank-you letters and they always bring a tear to my eye when I read how much they appreciate what I do for them on their [...]
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 [...]
I am really impressed with the new Bobbi Brown lip palette, it caters for all skin tones and has lots of lip colours and textures to choose from, (please see photo by Melbourne photography.) This was taken at The Habrough hotel. I am getting very busy for the end of this year and also nearly booked up for next year, so please contact me to check availability/if you would like to book!

I had met Crystal about 5 years ago when she [...]
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 [...]
I have had a very busy prom season, (see photo of the beautiful Alice Hendry.) Photo by Gary Davies - www.garydavisphotography.com Alice has got amazing skin anyway, so I just enhanced that and you can see how beautiful and glowing her complexion is. I also used Mac false lashes here, which always accentuate the eyes beautifully, without looking too obvious. I am half way through the wedding season now, and still lots of bookings and weddings are coming through. I have lots of bookings for [...]
At the moment, things are very busy - with weddings and make-up lessons. I also had the pleasure of meeting the lovely people behind Lily Lolo cosmetics this week, which is based in Hull...watch this space! Its also lovely when I get to see my work in a magazine. The June Lincolnshire Pride magazine is out, and I am proud to be mentioned in there from a lovely past bride of mine. (P111.) Emma Graham said "I could recommend every single supplier; they [...]
