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 hydrated...plus I loved pampering myself! I would definatley recommend these products to [...]
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!! 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 [...]

I am so inspired by Sam and Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo fame - www.pixiwoo.com 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 [...]
I am really enjoying writing my columns for the Journal magazine. Laura Stuart-Cooke has breathed new life into this glossy, high-end Lincolnshire magazine and it is jam-packed full of great articles, including Charlotte Hays' regular columns too. Charlotte is a Lincolnshire-based stylist and is set to launch new brand Stella&Alf with designer Paris Hodson. The Stella&Alf capsule collection - which will be made of natural fabrics in a neutral colour palette - will be available to buy online from [...]
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 [...]
