Valentines day…

Valentines day makeup by Tina Brocklebank.

Valentines day…

I can’t wait for January to be out of the way! I don’t know about you, but I find it a bit depressing! What with Christmas and New Year just gone, I am feeling a bit frazzled to say the least, so I am really looking forward to Spring, (plus its my birthday…not that I am looking forward to being a year older!)

My make-up studio is coming along nicely. There’s still a bit to do, but I aim to be in there for the next few weeks. I really can’t wait and I am so grateful to Jo of The Wedding and Flower boutique for letting me work from her studio. A lovely lady! Check out her work on Facebook and Instagram…amazing!

Valentines day is next month and I thought I would post up one of my favourite make-up looks which I did for a shoot, for around this time of the year. I used Make-up Forever HD foundation, Bobbi Brown Instant long wear concealer and a Charlotte Tilbury highlighter to give the skin that lovely dewy glow. Brows were defined with a little bit of eyeshadow and held in place with a bit of brow gel. I then used an Illamasqua eyeshadow in Android, (probably best to do the eyes first if you are doing a smokey eye, as its less messy!) I then used a Bobbi Brown long wear pencil in Jet and finished with some lovely MAC false lashes. I then used a creamy blush, I think this one is Pale pink from Bobbi Brown, but only a smidge. For lips I used a Charlotte Tilbury lip pencil in Kiss n tell and then a Charlotte Tilbury Matte lipstick in Love Bite. I only used a bit of powder down the t-zone to stop shine – I like the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush flawless finish.

Lots of enquiries this week for weddings next year! My diary is now open and I have started to take on bookings, so please get in touch to check availability and to book, to avoid disappointment.

Please feel free to comment on my blog. Thank you for reading and for following my work!
