Get Ready with me

Hey guys, So I thought I would film a very quick 'get ready with me' video.  I tend to try and keep my morning routine as quick as I can.  Generally I'll throw my hair up in a pony tail or if I'm feeling adventurous give my hair a soft wave with my hair tongs. My hair is really soft so doesn't always hold a curl.  Through trial and error I find the best thing for me to use is my GDH tongs and prefer them to straighteners.  My tongs have a clamp on them but I prefer to just wrap my hair around the barrel.  For the most part I curl my hair away from my face with the odd section...

Prom makeup tutorial

It feels like a lifetime ago since I was getting ready to go to prom. I remember the excitement of getting ready, going to the school and seeing everyone all dressed up in their ball gowns, suits and kilts.  I loved prom and would go back to relive it in a second.  We had the lovely model Storm back in the studio recently and as I'm doing Storm's prom makeup we all thought it would be fun to film her trial. Storm had sent us some references for her makeup which is always a great idea when you are having your makeup done for a special occasion.  Makeup can be quite a personal thing and often your client has something specific...

Spring & Summer 2016 bridal inspiration. This look we have put together, is a very simple and elegant bridal style. We have chosen a beautiful dress by Flossy and Dossy.

How to be a statement bride…

V-1
Not every bride wants to look the same. Especially on what is going to be one of the most important days of your life. So how do you go about avoiding the 'traditional' bridal, to make your mark as a unique bride on your big day? It is easy to get drawn into the 'safe' categories for your big day, I did it a lot myself for my wedding day. Everything from table plans, to your wedding dress can end up being a variation of different peoples opinions, often your creative ideas go in the back burner, because someone commented it may look out of place or not match that other thing. Or simply, you are just scared to go outside the 'traditional wedding' box. I had lots...

Learn to love your freckles..

M-106
I am always a bit disappointed that not everyone embraces their natural beauty, freckles are beautiful. They make you unique, they are youthful and so many people try to cover them up with heavy foundation. Try to embrace your freckles this spring, use a lighter foundation and if you aren't blessed with natural freckles you can imitate them using a eyebrow pencil which is 'freckle coloured', lets all embrace our freckles natural or not and free our inner hippy. Go for a carefree look with salt spray spritzed locks, natural skin and light make up. If you want to get a confidence boost to your natural beauty try getting an LVL eyelash treatment. This is basically where you get your eyelashes permed & tinted,...

Plait me please…

J-00
'Dutch braids', 'boxer braids' 'Dutch Plait' Whatever you want to call the latest Kardashian inspired trend, is not only cute but it looks very chic, considering the last time I wore this hairstyle, I was 8 years old and it was probably used to keep my hair out my face in the swimming pool. We have seen Kim K, Chloe K, Katy Perry sporting these boxer braids of late...
