I‘ve had the busiest year so far and blogging hasn’t been top of my to do list! I absolutely love doing makeup and chatting to people and other than washing my makeup brushes blogging is my least favourite thing to do! It seems to take me so long so I’m trying to get caught up with some of the beautiful girl’s makeup I had the pleasure of doing over the summer and share with you how they all looked.  I may not put a lot of text or writing with these blogs and the photographs do the talking anyway :)  

Stunning Jane and her bridal party – one of the hottest days of the year…

I love the title of this blog as I really believe that once we put our makeup on most of us become instantly more confident. I know if someone comes to my door at home and I’ve no makeup on, my head drops slightly and I don’t look the person in the eye the same. We are very lucky, as females, that we can use makeup to make us look and feel instantly better. I have attached a long list of photos of beautiful girls who had their makeup done over the last month or so for different reasons. Birthday parties, engagement parties, a night out, a hen weekend, a wedding, going to the races, a formal, a whole list of special occasions where the girl wanted to look good for her occasion.

  I’ve just realised I have so many photos of makeups so I’m going to split into a fews separate blogs :)

On Thursday morning I did makeup for a very good customer of mine, the beautiful Stephanie. I don’t usually take photos of my customers as most people are camera shy and usually still not that dressed when they’re in with me but I talked Stephanie into a quick iPhone photo before she left to go to the wedding. I’m really glad she agreed to a photo, just stunning.


A photo of how the eye makeup looked looking down, a funky twist on a 60′s look. And a fushia pink lip to add colour as Stephanie was wearing a classic black dress to the wedding. I really love the fact Stephanie had freckles from her recent holiday and she didnt want them covered up. I think freckles are so youthful and keep makeup looking fresh. Gorgeous girl, I don’t think Stephanie actually knows how gorgeous she is which makes her even nicer!


My make-up business has had a makeover :) I now have a much bigger, brighter make-up studio with not one, but four fully dedicated make-up stations, a larger reception area and a fantastic “mini me” called Melissa (although she’s a younger, thinner, more glamorous version)!

I’ve been very lucky over the past few years since becoming a professional make-up artist that my business has gone from strength to strength through my great location in the Linen Green, my dedicated customer service and of course brilliant make-up application ;)

My services include special occasion make-up, bridal make-up, individual make-up lessons and also our “Lashes & Flashes” Makeover Photo Experience. As well as this the “Eyes & Brows” Make-up Masterclasses which I run a couple of times a month are also very popular. Melissa, a qualified beautician with a special interest in make-up, now works with me on Saturdays. I have, over the last few months, fully trained Melissa to do make-up exactly as I was trained. It means that if I am fully booked on a Saturday, rather than not getting your make-up done you now have the option of Melissa being available. We can now also offer make-up for larger groups of ladies for example, hen parties and the “Lashes & Flashes” makeovers and model portfolios.
