British Heart Foundation Wear It Beat It Campaign
It was really great to be the hair and make-up artist for the new British Heart Foundation campaign - Wear It. Beat It 2017 - https://wearitbeatit.bhf.org.uk
This was a two day photoshoot working with a wonderful team from Killer Creative marketing agency.
On the first day I worked with heart survivor's, consultants and surgeons which was great as I got to listen to a lot of amazing stories that people were happy to share. In fact, this is one of the favourite parts of my work - getting to hear about other people's lives and the fact that people want share with me.
On the second day, a lot of male, female and children models arrived to have their hair and make-up done so that the British Heart Foundation had a variety of photos to share for their next big advertising campaign.
I really enjoyed being a member of the team that created photos for this campaign for the British Heart Foundation and look forward to working on the next one.

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 favourite from the selectio…
As a cosmetic camouflage practitioner I get asked to cover up scars, burn marks, port wine stains, birth marks, broken capillaries, Rosacea, eczema and all other skin conditions and discolourations. When I am doing a wedding, I often get asked to cover up a tattoo or two!
Below I will outline how you can cover up your own tattoo using Cosmetic camouflage creams.
There are many creams available on the market, my product of choice is Dermacolor by Kryolan - this is endorsed by many companies including British Association of British Camouflage and Skin Camouflage Network. Some of the products are also available on Prescription if your doctor gives you a prescription for the product - otherwise you can buy it direct from Charles H Fox.

2. If the tattoo is black, you need to apply a red colour on top of the black to neutralise the colour - I apply the product using a lip brush or liner brush. I have applied a green co…
