I could not be more excited to write my first ever blog on my beautiful new website. Just like my clients book me to give them a make-over, my website has had a make over!
Clients ask me to add a professional touch to their makeup. For me its all about hiring the right people for the job, that is why I want to say a few thank you’s, firstly to Kate pluck who designed me a beautiful logo, and a big thank you to Jonathan Sharpe at webflair.co.uk for helping me to create a website that I can be proud of.
I want to say a huge thank you to my incredible sister, Helen, she has helped me so much. Most of all a heartfelt thank you to my collaboration, my inspiration and my friend Gail Gardner, who has been in my corner helping me with my website and who inspires me every day. Gail is award winning and creates the most outstanding hairstyles. I have the absolute pleasure of working with Gail on many Weddings and exciting projects!

There are many psychological aspects of makeup and research shows that when wearing makeup you experience huge emotional and psychological benefits. Makeup boosts confidence and self esteem. Makeup has been used for over 30,000 years! For some women not wearing makeup can give a more negative side to your emotions. To wear makeup or be beautifully made up can encourage more positivity.
Charlotte Tilbury’s core philosophy; “Give a women the right makeup and she can conquer the world” sums it up beautifully. Charlotte believes the right makeup can change people’s lives and change their confidence because if you look good, you feel good.
Makeup for me is all about enhancing the features in the most beautiful way, but I will still pop out to the shops on my non makeup days, usually hiding behind a pair of sun glasses! I am not blessed with the most flawless skin, so although I don’t want to hide behind a mask of makeup, I do like to even out my skin tone. I use a light BB cream or mix a small pump of my light water weight Mac foundation with my Manuka doctor moisturiser or Charlotte Tilburys magic cream. This uplifts my complexion and uplifts me!
One of my absolute must have items in my kit is a highlighter. I love using the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow, the Mac gentle light or the too faced candle light glow. These add light and radiance to your face and give you the ‘within’ glow.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, never give up and put your makeup on!
