Makeup lesson voucher.

The Wedding Journal 2013.

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!  I am also very busy with teenage make-up lessons, (however, I only recommend make-up on teenage girls from the age of 16.)  I feel that any younger is not appropriate.  Even the 16 year old girls really need minimal make-up.  Its strange isn't it, we want to look older when [...]

Bobbi Brown pro lip palette, etc

Make-up addict!

Busy week, doing demos at the Grimsby Institute and doing make-up trials too.  I decided to buy the Bobbi Brown Pro Lip palette, (aswell as a few other essentials) for my make-up kit.  This palette is awesome.  Its got a range of 54 shades in it, ranging from very nude/natural to more pinky tones and then more dramatic reds/browns.  I can't wait to use it.  I am also loving using the new Illamasqua masquara in Raven, it is smudge-proof [...]

I also admire and am inspired by lots of other make-up artists - Sam and Nic Chapman, (Pixiwoo), Lisa Eldridge, Charlotte Tilbury, Rae Morris, Kevyn Aucoin, Alex Box, Polly Osmond (whom I used to go to to college with in London,) Clayre Hemmings, (who I went to college with too, and is an awesome make-up artist.)

Bobbi Brown Pro

February 2013 make-up column in the Journal by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist.

When ladies book a make-up session with me, more often than not, most ladies are very concerned about their looks.  They feel under constant pressure to look good, however, most ladies struggle with where to start with make-up and skincare.  This is where I can help them with my 24 years of experience.   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 [...]

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

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 [...]
