A Christmas Wedding at The High Rocks, Tunbridge

Last weekend's wedding was a very last minute one  - In fact, the head bridesmaid contacted me only two weeks before the wedding and asked me to do make up for the bride and 3 bridesmaids - no trial needed!

Therefore, I turned up with my entire make up kit, ready for a Christmas wedding, and boy did I get one! - The bride wore Red and seeing as all the girls were young, they were happy to experiment with make up and use as much colour as possible!

Yeah for me - two weddings in a row where I get to do what I want! (as long as they like the final result) - Of course, they loved their make up, and now I get to share it with you;
 The Bride wore red
 Base - Supercover, Concealer - Dermacolor, Powder - Supercover Setting Powder, Eyebrows - Kryolan eyebrow powder, Eyelids - Yellow all over, orange / gold liner above and below eyes, concealer pencil on inner eyes, Black liquid eyeliner applied on top eye lid finished by applying false eyelashes and maybelline mascara, Cheeks - supercover orange blush, Lips - Supercover natural liner, supercover lipstick in red with white shimmer and gloss on top. Highlight and shading, finished with Dermacolor Fixing spray to make all make up waterproof and sweat proof.
 The Bridesmaids were in deep purple.
 Base - supercover primer followed by supercover foundation, concealer - Dermacolor, setting powder - supercover, eyelids - Beige base, Green sockets, gold middle finished with black liquid liner (I prefer Rimmel), Maybelline Mascara, concealer pencil applied to the inner eyes, Cheeks - supercover in pink, lips - supercover lip liner, pink lipstick, clear gloss on top, Dermacolor fixing spray to finish off.
 Big eyes!
 supercover primer, foundation - supercover, concealer - dermacolor, powder - supercover setting powder, eyebrows - kryolan eyebrow powder, eyelids - white shimmer, purple sockets, black liquid liner applied to top, purpler liner below eyes, false eyelashes applied, cheeks - supercover pink, lips - supercover natural lip liner followed by pink lipstick and finished with gloss, highlight and shade, fix with dermacolor fixing spray.

Supercover primer followed by foundation - supercover, concealer - dermacolor, powder - supercover fixing powder, eyebrows brushed through and clear mascara applied, eyelids, yellow base, orange sockets, gold centre, dark brown liner applied to upper and lower lids, maybelline mascara, cheeks - supercover peach, lips - supercover liner, rust lipstick, clear gloss on top, highlight and shade - dermacolor fixing powder applied to make all make up waterproof and sweat proof.

1950's hair and make up for secret cinema screening of Grease the musical

Recently I was contacted by two local girls who was going off for a secret cinema screening of Grease the Musical.  They asked if I could do their hair and make up 50's style so that they looked the part! I love doing hair and make up like this as it is so much fun.  I love any make up from the 1920's onwards as woman really knew how to style themselves and how to wear their make up with pride..... that and big red lips! Here, with the girls permission are the before and after shots of them.

Art Nude Photo shoot

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form. I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs. It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks; Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold.  Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up. I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan  and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos. The photo above is my favourit
