November Update!

November is a quiet month for me in general which has meant I have had time to catch up on admin.... and do lots of decorating at home which has been both stressful and fun! When I haven't been painting faces I have had a paint brush in my hand painting walls which I have to say I really do enjoy.  Watch this space for Niki's Painting & Decorating Services in the future!!!Lol!!!

I am now gearing up for a busy Christmas period and looking forward to starting 2019!

Behind the scenes makeup set up's...

Bridal trials...a lot of hairstyling lately.

Christmas shoots, its coming!

Friday Fave! Kenra Volume Non-Aerosol Spray.

I love this non-aerosol volumising super-hold finishing spray.

I recently developed Asthma and have found one of my main triggers is aerosol hairsprays, basically glue for your lungs when you think about it.  Not ideal when I work with hair products, particularly aerosol hairsprays regularly in my career.

I have therefore been on the hunt testing out non-aerosol hairsprays for a few months now and this is my absolute fave by Professional Hair brand Kenra.

This spray holds styled hair perfectly for up to 120 hours and is humidity resistant and wind resistant up to 25mph!

A firm staple in my hairstyling kit.

Friday Fave! MAC Nippon Lipstick.

I have recently been testing a Cremesheen Lipstick by MAC Cosmetics in the shade 'Nippon'. I loved it so much it has stayed in my makeup bag as well as being a new addition to my professional kit.
I love the balmy feel of this super hydrating lipstick. Nippon Cremesheen is a medium coverage with a beautiful semi-glossy finish.
The colour is a pretty and totally gorgeous coral pink.  If you like any of these MAC shades; Shanghai spice, Angel, Pure zen, Crème cup and Crème d'nude you will love this colour!
RRP. £17.50
