October Update!

October didn't start too well I was in a car accident which was quite scary and my beloved MX5 was written off, happily I now have a replacement one : )

We have had some lovely sunny and mild autumn days which has been lovely to top up my Vitamin D and enjoy walks with my doggies.  As you can see Lucas has been on top form for his cute poodle poses this month too!

As the recommended Make-up artist at Luton Hoo hotel I attended the wedding showcase evening and I am looking forward to working at lots of weddings there over the coming months.

I had my first wedding at Bassmead Manor Barns beautifying Rebecca, her mum and maids.  It was a great morning and a fabulous venue to work in.

I did the hair and make-up at a video fitness shoot in Bedford for three models for three days in a stunning barn location house.

I am off on holiday's soon to recharge after a very busy year!

Siobhan's South farm Wedding!

On 13th September I did the bridal make-up for Siobhan and her mum at South farm, Royston.

It is one of my favourite wedding venues and I am lucky enough to work here often as a recommended Make-up artist.

On this occasion I worked alongside hairstylist Tina Crossley at who created an elegant and stunning updo for Siobhan's big day!

The beautiful photography and photo credits here are all thanks to the fabulous James Rouse at


 I just love the drive into South farm it it just perfect!

 A lovely light and spacious bridal suite to enjoy some pre-wedding pampering.

 Cant leave mum out!

My favourite shot, hair and make-up complete and time to get into the wedding dress!

Autumn/Winter 2015 Makeup & Hair trends.

Autumn is upon us in the UK and my update of the 2015 Autumn/Winter Hair & Make-up trends is here to guide you through fashionably!  You may want to avoid some of the the 'Grunge' and 'Gothic' looks or who knows you may want to adapt them to work for you.

Firstly are my top five kit essentials you will need to buy to stay on trend:
*Skin illuminator for the no make-up look
*Black Kohl pencil to apply in the water line
* New lipstick in any shade of berry, red or nude pink
*hairbands for that super sleek ponytail or texturised knot
*pink/peach toned blusher for that healthy flush

My personal favourite trends are:

*Roberto Cavali

For the rock 'n' roll waves and kohl rimmed eyes...

 * Diane Von Furstenberg

For the ultimate modern smoky eye....


For simple sun kissed winter beauty...


For ultimate evening glamour...

*Topshop Unique

For casual daytime beauty...

Here are the trends you need to know!
