March Update!

A busy month of weddings, wedding trials, special occasion make-ups and shoots....

Stand out moments for me were I had a really long day driving and and tough day shooting in Suffolk, too many insanely busy Saturday's and a lovely shoot at stunning Warren Weir at The Luton hoo hotel where I am the recommended Make-up artist.

Behind the scenes on the Warren Weir shoot.

Below are taken at Emily's wedding at Luton Hoo this month what a view from the makeup chair!

I have been doing a lot of hair styling this month as well, see some of my hair and makeup piccies below.

Product Alert: Maybelline Brow Drama!

Maybelline Brow Drama is my new make-up favourite!

A firm staple in my make-up bag this is going to be one of those products that I will use for a long time.

I have used clear mascara/brow gel to groom my brows for too many years to remember now but recently much to my annoyance a lot of brands have changed their applicator wands, Boots No.7 being one of them. These new shorter brushes I do not personally favour as much as a normal mascara wand as you simply get too much product on the brush and it therefore distributes unevenly in the brows.

Normal mascara brush example.
No.7 New Short applicator brush.

Maybelline however, has this wonderful brush which delivers the perfect amount of product and grooms through brows to complete perfection!

It comes in colour options as well as transparent including 'deep blonde', 'medium brown' and 'dark brown'.

Available at Boots RRP. £4.99

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye mascara

My new favorite mascara of the moment is Bobbi Brown's Smokey Eye mascara.

I love the short size and shape of the brush making mascara super easy to apply, the brush is also cleverly tapered at the tip to get into those hard to reach lashes.  This mascara is excellent at lengthening, curling and building to really make the best of your natural lashes.  As I apply this my lashes appear to stretch before my eyes and I can honestly say no other mascara has made my eyelashes look this good, even my husband commented!

I like to wear this mascara day to day but it is equally good to compliment smokey eyes for a big night out.

This mascara delivers the drama every woman's lashes need via 'kohl-pigmented' technology.

Smudge free, doesn't clump or flake... what is not to love?

Available in black at all good department stores and www.bobbibrown.co.uk

RRP. £22.00
