22nd May

Last weekend I was involved In Leeds Bridal Shoot which included various photographers from round the UK came together to do bridal images, this is similar to a convension. I did the Hair and Make up on about 3 models. One included a Gothic Bride! Got some great images but still waiting for some more to come through and put on my gallery. Really enjoyed meeting new photographers and other make up artists and models.

Been a busy month for weddings in May. Was working in Leeds yesterday for a large wedding party, where some of the guests  and bridal party came over from Liverpool. Today did a large wedding party in Bradford. Both brides where lovely and looked beautiful and made me feel very welcome on there special day.

This week got bridal trials for upcoming weddings. Sunday working with a great photographer again Richard Paul, Leeds. Doing some editorial Lingerie images for my portfolio. Natural make up and hair is the look we are going for.

Need to stock up on some new foundation so a trip to MAC make up counter shortly for supplies soon. Also Illamasqua has a new foundation coming out soon so may try a couple of shades. Also NYX are a great make up brand who I would recommend. Great value make up for make up artists.

Had a photoshoot with John Gardener photographer, Wakefield. Teenage make over photoshoot for clients birthday. The model was only 15 yrs old so make up was not to heavy as did not want the client to look older than her years but enough make up had to be applied to stand out in the pictures due to flash photography. I did Brown smokey eyes, false lashes, pink cheeks and pink lips.

Did a hair trial for a client for her upcoming wedding. We used a false ponytail to create thickness and volume and then i curled the hair and did barrel curls and twisted and secured with pins and pearls. The effect was amazing and once again a happy client. Also did a bride in Bradford, the bride was in her 40’s so make up was not to heavy but enough to compliment the beautiful bride.

Got more make up trials in Leeds this week and a wedding in Halifax on Friday. Saturday doing a photoshoot In Leeds with some professional models and photographers, Bridal shoots so will be great for my portfolio!

On the lookout for some new make up, looking to order from Nars I think as there eyeshadows are one of my favorites.

Pictures below are from the L’Oreal colour trophy awards. I did the make up to compliment the hair for the event. Model Georgina was a professional and had great features for me to work on.

Having watched the royal wedding which I enjoyed I compliment Kate the bride on wearing heavier make up on the day of the wedding. At last a bride who wants to look glam on her day. Sometimes I discuss with brides make up has to be heavier and more application for the day firstly due to camera work- photos are for life and who wants to look bland on them? And also make up has to last throughout the day hence why heavier application. Plus why wear makeup you would wear on a daily basis. You are wearing a dress you would not wear on a daily basis so make up needs to be the slightly over the top. I thought her make up was great and I applaud her on bringing out the glam but pretty look for her wedding. So hope all the brides out there will have a new outlook on their make up and take tips from the princess herself if it is good enough for royality then it is good enough for any new brides to be out there. Glam make up is the way forward!
