Prom Make-Up

Alisha, Prom make-up.

Prom make-up…

Its not often I post photos of my daughter, but I just had to recently! It was her Prom day recently and I was just so proud of her, I wanted to show her off to the world! It is a well-known fact, that at this age, teenagers can suffer with bad skin and a few spots here and there.  Alisha has completely mastered the art of concealing her little blemishes.  She has a great skincare routine, but despite all [...]

Christmas wish list 2015…

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!....there's so much on offer out there, make-up wise for us, it can all get a little bit crazy to decide what to put on our Christmas list or to buy those make-up lovers in your life. Here I have tracked down a few beauties, plus of course, I am offering my very popular Make-up lesson/session vouchers (£150 for an hour session. You will receive a bespoke session in my [...]

Black winged eyeliner look

Black winged eyeliner…

Today's blustery weather calls for a bit of drama I think - its all about the winged eyeliner today! I used Embryolisse moisturiser first and then used Cover FX compact foundation to even out my skin tone, Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer serum under my eyes, and then Anastasia Beverley Hills dip brow pomade on my brows.  To create the eyeliner look, use Urban decay eye primer first, then apply vanilla cream eyeshadow stick by Bobbi Brown all over [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Prom make-up – Make-up by Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist…

Prom season is upon us, (once again!) and I have been so busy with make-up trials, weddings and also Prom make-ups.  I have just written an article for The Journal magazine about this.  I am always surprised when I meet my prom girls as 16 years old is so much older now from when I was that age.  These girls are inundated nowadays with images of perfection, so hats off to them as they all looked stunning and such [...]

Luxury bridal make-up lessons –

Wedding season is in full flow and I have been so busy with bridal/wedding make-up trials and make-up lessons.  I often get asked to do make-up lessons for ladies that are getting married abroad, I have done quite a few of these just lately, so I have updated my make-up lesson package accordingly. I suppose it all started off when Kate Middleton got married and surprised everyone by not having a make-up artist, as she did her own make-up on [...]

Special occasion make-up, etc.

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 [...]

Prom make-up and an update…

I have had a very busy prom season, (see photo of the beautiful Alice Hendry.)  Photo by Gary Davies -   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 [...]
