March Update!

I am the recommended Makeup Artist at Luton Hoo Hotel and was pleased to exhibit at the wedding show at the beginning of March, the next one is in October if you missed it I look forward to meeting new brides to be!

Another busy month for bridal trials, I specialise in natural enhancing makeup for your big day.

Just some of the many faces I have had the pleasure of making up!

Hair and makeup trial for Katherine

A lovely Bridesmaid makeup trial too!

Behind the scenes on a photoshoot, I have been lucky to have a few close to home this month and also one in the pretty cotswold village of Chipping Campden so I made time for a quick tea room pitstop as you do!

Friday Fave: Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Conditioner 300ml

This week's "Friday Fave" is Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Conditioner which I have been using for a good month or so now.  I am a huge fan and indeed of the daily shampoo.

This is excellent for colour treated hair.  My hair colourist for the first time ever said my hair seemed in much better condition, I am convinced it is totally down to this Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner combo!

Enriched with proteins, amino acids and panthenol it strengthens and moisturises helping to repair colour treated hair.

Apply a small amount to your palms and massage into the hair, you will notice hair instantly de- tangles and feels silky and smooth.

My hair feels shinier and healthier than it has in a long time. I recommend using this in conjunction with the daily shampoo (£11.75).

Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Conditioner Retails at £14.50

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
