Ita recently came for a makeover photoshoot and was unsure what to bring with her. Then she showed me a picture of her gorgeous red cloche hat her husband had bought her for Christmas… and everything just fell into place!

Ita has such elegance and is a really lovely gentle, modest person.  I thought it was important to try to bring this out in her makeover photoshoot .

Although a cloche hat is traditionally from the 1920′s era, I felt 1920′s make-up on Ita wouldn’ t look quite right as it is quite a “dark” and solemn make-up with really dark lips  and “sad” downturned eyebrows. So we went for a more classic 1950′s look which is much warmer and flattering with black eyeliner accentuating the eyes, false lashes and scarlett red lips (which matched brilliantly with the hat).

Ita’s black fur collared jacket and black leather gloves really made the whole look…

I love the edit on this next photo as it has such a romantic old style film quality to it…

I now have my very own gorgeous make-up studio! It has a double hollywood mirror surrounded by  daylight bulbs for exact colour matching and precise make-up application and storage for all my make-up and accessories.

It also has a big squidey sofa for chats and visitors and is a great changing area too for when we’re doing our makeover photoshoots.

I just love it – when it was first finished I think I felt like Carrie in Sex and the City when Big showed her the walk in wardrobe he’d built for her!

Here’s Zara having a glass of bubbly while getting her make-up done..

Louise recently treated herself to a makeover photoshoot and the results are fantastic!  I have included some photos of Louise getting her make-up done in my new make-up studio. She enjoyed a couple of glasses of champagne whilst being pampered – all part of the makeover photoshoot experience – a real treat.

Here are some of the photos from her recent makeover photoshoot below, gorgeous…..
