Got lots of bridal trials booked in and been doing this week in the Halifax area, also doing a evening wedding make up again but in Pontefract. ! The bride got married in Florida but is having a reception back in her home town. After the make up I am onto Manchester to see Kylie in concert. Working on a Photoshoot on Sunday with local photographer.

Mentioned about a new mascara I was testing and really was a let down as did not live up to the expectations. So back to the drawing board to find that perfect mascara!

new pictures on my gallery from the Oxford fashion show I was involved with. Some nice images which showcased some of my work.

Having got back from working on the fashion show in Oxford I came away inspired to what I learnt on what goes on behind the scenes. All make up had to be really bright colours, so did lots of green eyeshadow and pink lips! Male models were made up, this was concentrating on more of the contouring of the face and bringing out the eyes. Lots of the models came up from London and also the stylists and other make up artists and hairdressers but I was the only one from Yorkshire who was involved. Meet some nice people and was great for networking in the industry.

Getting ready for Oxford Fashion Week, show on saturday for Sinclair Management who represents Modesl for Diversity. Will be doing make up application for the models, hopefully network with other people in the industry and get my name out there in the make up world!  Clothing brands will be Reiss, Miss Selfridges etc. so will be a great day. Staying overnight the day before so can be rested and ready for a busy day ahead!

Been busy with bridal trials this week, Huddersfield and Bradford. Work next week in the Leeds area.

Found out a about a really excellent mascara which is not sold in the UK, ordered from Japan and when it comes I will test this out and if any good I will share on my blog, meant to give amazing lash extension looks?

Well confirmed that I am helping to do hair and make up at Oxford Fashion Week on 19th March. This is for ‘Models of Diversity’ which is a London based Model agency specialising in Models who are basically not 6ft and an amazon. Real models for real people. Looking forward to been involved with this charity event. Never been to Oxford, so looking forward to visiting this Heritage City.

Bridal trials up and running now, all brides are wanting natural radiant looks. Bought a new NARS eyeshadow duo and fantastic results, mid browns so gives a natural but warm look to the eyes. Think will be buying more from NARS even though more expensive than MAC it is a more velvet coverage and easier to apply without residue dropping onto the skin.

If brides are worried about there skin not being perfect for the wedding day I recommend having a microdermabrasion a few months before to give the skin a new lease of life. Not a cheap treatment but well worth the investment to look radiant on the day.

I have now started sending a information leaflet to clients when thinking of booking with me about having a make up artist and what it entails and what results to expect and also to cover brides idealistic views of what we can and cannot do with regards to looks they are wanting to create. Celeb’s and magazines make brides want this beautiful flawless free face but do not realise that camera work, lighting and expectional editing creates these looks.
