Teaching Bridal Makeup

Today I have been  teaching at Brighton Makeup School a masterclass in Bridal and asian bridal Makeup. It was so much fun and I had the most fantastic students. Full of enthusiasm and passion for makeup and becoming make up artists. We talked through cruelty free products, skincare, colour theory and so much more. 

We began the day with a natural bridal makeup. I began the demo and we chatted through the important things about creating bridal makeup looks. Here are a couple of pics of the natural look.

Makeup Mum

With Mothers day approaching it made me think of how Life has changed somewhat in the past year. Last february we welcomed our most gorgeous baby girl Edie to the world. I never could have imagined the love I could feel and the organisation skills i would acquire ! Learning how to do pretty much everything one handed whilst carrying a baby in the other arm has become quite the norm. Edie joined me on a photoshoot with the incredible Noor - Queen of jet lags and also her daughter for Swarovski only last year.  The production team and brand were fantastic and how super for supporting working Mums. Edie in one hand, makeup brushes in the other !

Since becoming a Mum it really has made me think of my Mum and all the Mums and Mums to be out there, Being a woman is so flipping brilliant ! Yes we get the nutty hormones and occasional mood swings but living in the world today as a woman we can truly be anything we want to be !

So this is just a little blog to celebrate all the women out there,

Hair goals! - With Undercover Glamour

It was great to have top model Isabelle Allan working with us for our clip-in hair extensions photoshoot.  She definitely brought some Swedish glamour to Bury St Edmunds.  It is great to work with such talented models as every picture is a good one, and it makes our job much easier.  A massive thank-you to RMG Models for organising for me.  See some of our pics from the hair extension shoot below.

We recently created a beautiful blonde bayalage hair mix that was a perfect colour match with Isabelle's hair.  This is one of our most popular colours so I really wanted to showcase it.  It is called our California Blonde Highlights, #60/22/18.  These extensions are made with three beautiful tones of blonde (honey blonde, light blonde and our lightest blonde, which we call barbie blonde).  The multi-tonal blondes will give your hair a gorgeous sunkissed look.  They are in our classic range, and are triple wefted, double drawn and made from 100% REMY hair.  You can see how the three different blondes are blending in with Isabelle's own hair (in the pic above). I am really a fan of our new balayage hair extensions as it makes colour matching so much easier.  Most people have lots of different shades of blonde in their own hair, so the blonde hair mixes are the perfect solution to making the hair extensions blend in naturally.  These hair extensions are currently available in 12 inches, 16, 18, 20, and 22 inches in length. Sarah recently created this beautiful banner for our hair extensions with Isabelle, and I hope you like it as much as we do.  All pictures are by Sarah Louise Johnson, and model, Isabelle Allan is from RMG Models.

Welcome !

After many years of working in the makeup industry I now have my shiny and new wedding website. Over the years Ive been so fortunate to share the weddings of many clients and great friends weddings. I decided to call this website All about the bride as its obviously just That ! and my other website is generally all about everything else !! Advertising, Fashion Shoots, Tv, Music and Red  carpet,



There is nothing i love more than being invited to share one of the most special days of someones life and make you feel great on your wedding day or special event. Whether your style is low key and natural, a slick of mascara, a tint of blush and glowy skin or a polished and perfect Red carpet worthy smokey eye, cut crease, glitter or bold lip colour.  I LOVE makeup and how unique it is to each person.  x
