You know when you know something is coming in the post and you just can’t wait for the postman every day…..well this week has been one of those weeks for me!

On Wednesday I received a new cream blush “Rose de Rose” By Terry which is really creamy and gives a dewy natural glow to the cheeks. It also smells of roses as it has natural pigment drawn from rose petals – such a gorgeous product.

On Thursday my not so expensive, but equally as exciting, order from E.L.F make-up  arrived with a small selection of make-up goodies and my free 32 piece eyeshadow palette!

Yesterday was by far one of the most exciting deliveries – my new Terry Bradley Limited Edition bag which is now my  kit bag to carry around all my make-up kit that’s separate from my make-up box. And everything fits in it like a glove.

The Terry Bradley artwork on this is called “Lucky” so I hope she brings me some wherever we go on our make-up travels!

The inside is lined in fushia pink and mine’s number 302 of 1000.

I got using my bag today for the first as I did the absolutely gorgeous Donna’s make-up for her going to a formal tonight in Belfast. Donna’s eyes are amazing – I wish I had a photo of her finished look to put up here. She was stunning.

Megan was recently updating her model portfolio and, as she had these amazing black & red very Moulin Rouge’ish accessories with her, I did a make-up styled to suit for a few of her photos. Ooh la la….! (Moulin Rouge is one of my all time favourite films for so many reasons, I just love it)


Joy and Roberta, two best friends, recently treated themselves and had the makeover photoshoot experience in our studio . The results speak for themselves! They really loved the whole pampering experience, enjoying a glass of champagne while having their make-up applied including false lashes and then getting into their gorgeous dresses and big tippy over shoes for the photoshoot. They really look amazing in their photographs – both were absolute naturals in front of the camera and the bubble chair went down well too.

I loved doing their make-up giving each of them quite a different look but both equally glamorous, sexy and stunning.

I had the pleasure of doing Emma’s make-up for her wedding at the end of August. Emma’s wedding was in the summer and her whole persona just matches this season perfectly – Emma is bright, bubbly, full of life and is blessed with long blonde hair and sparkly clear blue eyes. For Emma’s eyes I used soft pinks, lilacs and silvers with black liner to define and accentuate her blue eyes. I used a soft pink lipcolour and lots and lots of pink blusher! Emma loves her blusher, a girl after my own heart! She was truly a stunning summer bride and glowed on her wedding day.

Stephanie, my gorgeous bridal model, had a few photos taken in the bubble chair after her bridal photoshoot. I had to quickly change her make-up from beautiful, elegant bride to sexy siren! I smoked up her eyes and added a fiery red lip from Estee Lauder ….
