Red lips and leopard print

Red lips and leopard print…

With the gloomy weather surely there is light at the end of the tunnel? or in my case, my make-up bag?!  Dark days call for a bright pop of colour so I opted for my trusty MAC lip pencil in High energy today and wrapped up in my Topshop leopard print coat.  If you are going to be wearing a red lip, make sure you get rid of any redness first in your face, (especially around your mouth, nose [...]

My make-up columns and make-up lessons…

I am very lucky to be a columnist for The Lincoln Journal and The Lincolnshire Journal magazines, (I also write columns for The Wedding Journal too.) My most recent column in The Wedding Journal is talking about why you should book a Pro make-up artist on your wedding day.  Here's a snippet, "Weddings are a time of celebration and happiness and I am always honoured to be a part of someones' special day.  When choosing a Make-up artist, you can't [...]

Body painting by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist – Stroke UK

I was approached by the charity Stroke UK to do a body painting for them for #MayMayPurple campaign.  I jumped at the chance as I love body painting and had been yearning to do another one, as I hadn't done one for years.   Obviously, the theme was purple, so I know I had to incorporate that into the design.  I didn't just want to paint anything basic, like a t-shirt with the logo on, I wanted to go all [...]

Well, here we are already in May! I've been busy doing a lot of make-up trials and lessons recently.  I've also been busy preparing for a very special shoot, which I will go into more detail about soon. Wedding season is in full flow and I am just about fully booked up for this year, (weekends), apart from the odd few, but I could probably use those for the rest!   2016 and 2017 are filling up very fast too. I've been [...]
