Prom Hair & Makeup Inspiration!

Prom Season is fast approaching so I have put together some hair and makeup inspirations for you.
When choosing your prom hair and makeup do take into account your dress and other accessories you will be wearing such as jewellery, handbag and shoes. Consider a hair and makeup look that suits your personal style as well as your chosen dress! You do not want to wear your hair down if your dress has a beautiful high back detail.  Likewise you probably shouldn't go for a messy braided updo if your dress is long and traditionally elegant and do you really suit a bright red lip in a orange dress?

Please note images are not my own work, these are taken from the web for inspiration only.

March Update!

March has flown by, it didn't feel particularly busy for me but looking over the photos I have taken it feels it now!

I had the pleasure of doing natural hair and makeup for this gorgeous gal Hope Virgo who has just written her first book, what an achievement! 'Stand Tall Little Girl' about her journey wth anorexia.



Makeup Wedding trials...







 Wedding hair trials...







Wedding makeup for a very excited Shevon in Harpenden, I am looking forward to seeing the professional shots via Lee at  www.wrappweddings.com



Wedding Hair and Makeup for gorgeous Eleanor, again looking forward to seeing some pro' shots as my pictures are not the best, I will stick to my day job I think...





Special Occassion Makeup for lovely Liz, always a pleasure to work on such a gorgeous face.



This year I am finally getting back into my painting! My first acrylic painting in about fifteen years is a portrait of Amy Winehouse, quite pleased for my first attempt...
