July Update!

My busiest month this year for weddings and possibly the hottest and yes I did have a wedding on the day of 40 degree heat! See my little set up below and the beautiful bride after makeup.


















The wedding was at a very old house in St Albans and the original toilets still in use were very much a talking point of the bridal preparations!










I also celebrated my tenth wedding anniversary! I love this photo of us dancing our wedding night away and I always find it funny I didn't top my makeup once I was clearly having too much fun in the moment.










Mum and I also saw Michael Bublé at Hatfield House finally this should have been in 2020 but due to Covid was delayed twice, it was such a great evening with perfect weather.










I started the month at a new venue for me www.clivedenhouse.co.uk , which was stunning and I am sure I will be back.




































Lots of weddings and trials ahead of autumn weddings, here is a few snaps I grabbed along the way.
































































































Created some lovely hairstyles recently too, these are a few of my personal favourites.

Friday Fave! Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-kissed Glow Bronzer.

 Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-kissed Glow Bronzer.

I have long been a huge fan of both Charlotte Tilbury's Airbrush powder bronzer and Unisex Healthy Glow tint but the recent introduction of a cream bronzer is literally a dream come true for me!

It is the best cream bronzer by far that I have tried and I have tried quite a few! There are four shades for different skin tones.  I opted for shade 2. Medium but you can also choose from 1. Fair, 3. Tan and 4. Deep.

I like to take a synthetic brush and swirl it gently around the bronzing cream before buffing into the areas of the face the sun naturally hits i.e cheekbones, forehead, nose and jawline. I blend well using the same brush and add more product a little at a time if I think I need it.  This bronzer can also be used on the body and I like to take it down onto the neck and collarbone.

It contains Hyaluronic acid and pro-vitamin D3 to hydrate skin as well as improving the skin's appearance.

If you like a glowy bronzed look and like to use cream blusher this is definitely the product for you, also an excellent choice if you have mature or drier skin rather than using a powder bronzer.

The best bit is it lasts up to 16 hours and is sweat/humidity proof and in the 40 degree heat in the UK this week it didn't budge and certainly passed the test.

This cream bronzer gives such a gorgeous sun-kissed look... I absolutely love it!!  Firmly staying in my makeup bag I will not be without it and a definite Friday Fave!

RRP. £42.00
