Wedding season in full swing, been travelling to Hull for a few weddings as clients there say there are not many make up artists in that area. But that is the advantage of being freelance, I work all over and if clients want me then I will be happy to travel to whatever location. If outside my radius I have to ask for a fee towards petrol but clients are happy to do this.

Done a vintage wedding trial the other week on a client who’s wedding is in August. She is having a 50’s style wedding but did not want the traditional look we all know as vintage make up. We wanted to avoid the red lips and make it more daytime wedding. So we started off doing airbrush makeup to give a natural flawless finish to the clients skin. Then we built up colour in the eye socket with natural and earthy colours, browns to create definition and did the black eyeliner with the ‘flick’ then opted for a pink colour blush and a rose coloured lip so still gave a the feel of vintage but not as severe and more for the wedding. The bride loved the look and i was really pleased with the outcome. Looking forward to the day when the bride will have the traditional dress and hair and will make the look complete. Will make sure that an image will be posted on my website of the complete look.
