Many months ago I got the chance to work with Brett Harkness on one of his bridal training courses. During these courses Brett requires a make-up artist to create the look for the model throughout the day. In a quick conversation he said… 'how about France in October?' Well before I knew it October was nearly here and I was searching around for suitable looks and styling to create for his course in France.
The course in France is held over 3 days for photographers who want the chance to learn some new techniques in the photography world. This had a fashion led element to it with some...

If you are a regular reader of my blogs you know how much I love Lipstick Queen. The brand, the range of lipsticks from the colours to the packaging. It is such fun to see a brand having so much fun with their products.
The latest range to the brand is Belle Epoque.
Belle Epoque is a range of three tinted balms, currently I am using the paler shade in Belle Nude. The other two shades are Belle Pink and Belle Wine.
These three lip colours offer a hint of colour to the lip but add more of a treatment to the lips. My lips tend to get really dry especially when I have been working...

As soon as you apply on the skin, the skin looks instantly smoother and more...
