This weeks 'Friday Fave" is Charlotte Tilbury's new Hollywood FLAWLESS FILTER.

This product achieves a superstar youthful glow, it can be applied all over the face, mixed with foundation for heavier coverage or applied on top of foundation for a highlight.

It has the versatility of a primer, the gorgeous glow of a highlighter, and perfects skin like a digital filter. It helps smooth the skins appearance minimising fine lines and open pores, definitely achieving red-carpet worthy skin.

I like to wear it on its own for glowing coverage or sometimes I pat it onto the high points of the face i.e cheekbones and cupids bow for a beautiful highlight.  It has a definite thumbs up from me!

There are seven shades ranging from '1' to '7', I have been wearing shade '3', described as a neutral peach for light to medium skin.

30ml RRP £30.00

I love spraying this around my home its smells divine and instantly calms, and a spritz on the pillow before bed aids sleep.

A secret weapon for today's busy lifestyles!

February Update!

February has flown by I have been quite ill with a virus that is dragging on, thankfully work has been a bit quieter this month.  I went on holiday to Valencia which was great but I was ill the entire holiday...not so great! I am looking forward to a busy wedding season kicking off at the end of March and currently I am busy with Wedding shows, Admin', lessons, shoots and trials.

January Update!

Who said January was quiet... it has been a crazy month with lots of weddings being booked in, a lot of hair and makeup trials as well as lots of shoots and generally catching up on other areas of my business that doesn't involve the makeup side!

I am also trying to make more time for my health and well being this year so I have finally joined a gym after almost ten years and plan to start yoga, pilates and swimming!!

Here are just a few of the gorgeous brides to be who I have had the absolute pleasure of working with.
