I had the pleasure recently of working with the gorgeous Katie, for her wedding in Lincolnshire. Make-up wise, Katie prefers a very natural look and I didn't want to distract the attention away from those amazing flowers! Light foundation was applied and a spot of powder, eyes were kept very light with a tiny bit of definition and some very small false lashes. A tiny flush of cream blush and then the spot on lip colour from Bobbi Brown to compliment the [...]
I had the pleasure of being the lovely Lindsey's Make-up artist today, for her wedding today at The Brackenborough hotel, Louth. Lindsey had booked me well in advance, about 2 years prior to her wedding day as she was set on me being her Make-up artist, so I was very flattered! Lindsey loves make-up and so I wasn't afraid to go to work, and really accentuate her lovely features. She has lovely skin and I like to really let the skin [...]
I have been inundated recently with requests for make-up lessons. From Mothers who are at their wits ends from their daughters contouring habits, Husbands who have been constantly asked for a make-up lesson with me and also from ladies requiring help with applying their own make-up - we are never taught at school are we!!

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 [...]
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 [...]
