Blog update!…

Things have been very hectic lately, (again!), ive been really busy with make-up trials and make-up lessons - the wedding season is in full flow it seems - this weekend I am working in Bedfordshire at Wyboston lakes for a wedding, and I have also recently taken on a wedding booking for Liverpool next month at the beautiful Knowsley Hall.  I get to see so many lovely venues and work with such great people. I have been doing lots of make-up [...]

Beautiful before and after makeup.

How to treat/camouflage dark circles…

One of the most common concerns for the ladies that I meet are dark circles.  Dark circles are different to an eye bag, and eye bag is a "sag" and no amount of make-up can conceal this, (I will blog about this hopefully on a later date.)  There may be different causes for the dark circles, one could be hereditary even.  All is not lost, as we have my secret weapon of choice...make-up! Firstly, you do have to make sure [...]

Organic glam review –

I was kindly sent some products from Organic Glam.  Created by a highly experienced Pharmacist who specialised in homeopathy and well being.  She then created an organic brand, free from chemicals and now has stores nationwide, with their flagship store being at Kings Road, London. I tried the following products on one of my best friends, Sharon - Luminous antioxidant foundation, eyeshadow shimmer, liquid shimmer highlighter, concealer palette and lipstick. I loved the packaging, it looked expensive with a designer edge to [...]

Make-up kit cleaning time again!

The glamorous life of a Professional Make-up artist…

It's that time again! I am very mindful about keeping my make-up kit and brushes all sanitised and clean.  So, when you book a Professional make-up artist, take into consideration not just the time she puts into applying your make-up but also replying to e-mails, cleaning and stocking up her make-up kit and brushes not to mention her experience and portfolio.  This sets the professionals apart from the amateurs, thus is reflected in their pricing. Between clients, my brushes and [...]

silk fibre brows

Product reviews…

Silk fibre brows - £19.99.  Brows are definitely "the thing" at the moment, the more natural looking the better too.  I am always on the look-out for a great brow product as I opted for the Kate Moss "Biba" brow many years ago sadly, hence, my brows have never been the same since and I have to shade them in.  When I opened this bottle, my first impression was not good, the applicator was far too big I felt [...]

Embryolisse

Product reviews…

As you may know, I often receive products to try out and review. I also include these when I can, in my make-up columns in The Journal magazines. One of the products was Embryolisse lait-crème concentre, which I love and actually use on myself anyway, so it is easy reviewing this lovely product. Firstly, I love the packaging, as as its in a tube, it is hygienically used, (so no fingers dipping in and out of a pot), [...]

Tina Brocklebank prom make-up

The Guest Blogger – Alisha Brocklebank

The Guest Blogger: March (spring) So, a new season, a new blog...hopefully I can give you, the teenage girls out there who need money saving alternatives; and easy application ideas; to get that fresh faced feel this spring. As a fellow teenager, I know how tricky achieving that perfect median between ‘not looking like a ten year old wanna-be’ and ‘applying too much make-up like the girls on Towie’ can be. Therefore I have come up with a simple solution that [...]

Maggie Hunt brushes

Its all go at the mo!…

I had the opportunity recently to be asked to be involved working on the Victoria Secrets show in London! I had 2 emails from Milan, but sadly it wasn't to be! ...Next time perhaps?! One of my lovely friends who I used to go to the London College of Fashion with, put my name forward so I would work in his make-up team...neither of us were put through though but it was an honour to be considered anyway! I have [...]

January make-up, etc…

I have been asked to write for The Lincoln Journal, so I am very happy to announce I shall be writing a regular monthly column for them, alongside my Lincolnshire Journal column, which will be totally different.  I will be doing a "Look of the month" feature in the Lincoln one and the Lincolnshire one will be focusing more on trends and what I have been up to, and what I recommend product wise. I have been extremely busy so [...]
