It's time to break the rules and carve out our own path to modern beauty. This week I'm sharing with you how, armed with my Untitled No 1 brushes, I am creating my own version of just that. Featuring in F Word Magazine, an eclectic platform practically overflowing with up and coming talent featuring people from fashion, art, music, lifestyle fields.
Feeling inspired by the colours of the sky, the flowers and the insects of Spring and Summer Equinox seasons resulted in this delicate beautiful make-up look. Captured in a clean and perfected manner by none other than Lee Scullion. Later stitched...

As quoted by Jo Foster "Good sleep is fundamental to a successful beauty regime
because it is while we sleep that the most active cell renewal happens. That's why
poor sleep so often results in poor skin. Our products not only help you get to sleep
but also give your skin the nourishment it needs overnight as it repairs and
Enjoy and sleep well Jo x
As one of the Brand Ambassadors for West Barn Co I am so proud to see their latest launch that really hits the spot, literally! WBCo Hydro Dots are tiny, discreet and clear hydrocolloid patches which supply a solution of 1% salicylic acid directly to the source of your problem. Designed to protect the area for healthy healing whilst drawing out and absorbing any impurities and excess oil, these dots are perfect for anyone struggling to control their breakouts!
I know it's the advice none of us want to heed warning to, myself included... but we've really got to stop picking at our spots!...
Peep Club was launched in 2020 with the approach that we need to care for our eyes better. A modern take on eye care, their Instant Relief Eye Spray is especially considered due to all the technology and screens many of us spend our days gazing into now. It's no secret why this little bottle of goodness won awards from the Beauty Bible this year. Since trying it out last June it quickly became part of my daily routine, but it slipped out of habit for a bit. After picking it back up again it's almost a year later and now I'd class it as one of my must have products I carry in my own make-up...
This week I'm sharing with you my work with END. to mark the 35th anniversary of the Air Max 1. They were celebrating in style with the 'La Ville-Lumière' release especially for the anniversary and had me on board to create a look for the shoot. They had asked for a soft matte skin base which was perfect play off the harsh urban environment and the energy of these effervescent pastel sneakers.
It was nice to mix things up after playing with a lot of glow and shine in my work lately, so I was excited I got to do a more neutral matte effect. I achieved this by prepping the skin with a delicate...
I might be biased, but this week I've got a shoot to share with you from the best bridal dream team the North East has to offer! I love working with these two on shoots and weddings, it's always such a relaxed vibe, good laugh and the end results are always exactly what I envisioned. I think the results here speak for themselves at both of their talents.
You might recognise the photography style from last weeks blog, as it's none other than Lee Scullion I'm talking about who also shot the wonderful Leaf for her wedding. The member of our creative trio is Gareth Lambert, who never fails...
Where do I begin with the wedding of Mr and Mrs Goddard? As I am writing this blog post and scheduling it to go out, it is exactly two years ago we were put into that first fateful lockdown and all weddings were postponed until further notice. It feels like so much longer now as we all start to catch up with our new normal and almost everyone who has faced a postponement has finally said their vows. The mad rush to fit every Bride in and the non-stop work I have been ever so grateful for to get back on my feet, it's been a whirlwind.
Amongst that whirlwind was the wonderful...
After we got that little sneak peek of the sunshine to come back in late March, I think we've all been on the edge of our seats for the sun to return so we can take off our layers and embrace the warmth! It might be still a be looking a bit dreary for the foreseeable week but if you're planning ahead some spring and summer outfits I've got a key ingredient you should be keeping in mind! Proshine is a professional body oil for anyone to use, this all over face and body moisturiser will elevate your style from an everyday look to front page ready.
It's such a practical little tool that delivers...
Sometimes the pictures say more than my words ever could, and that's how I feel looking back over photo's from The Northern Wedding Show with Belle Bridal. So I will keep it short and sweet with just a mention of how fantastic each of the make-up sponsors were! It was an amazing weekend to be part of as always, each year the event comes around and I continue to be honored with creating make-up looks for the catwalk shows between manning my own stall. This year with the backing of three fantastic make-up sponsors the catwalk looked better than ever before.
Steamcream provided us with...
Just like many of my 2021 weddings, Priyanka and Paul's felt like double the celebration. Another couple surrounded by their friends and family on October 23rd at Bolton Castle, all just over joyed to be together celebrating this day of love between the two after countless restrictions and lockdowns we had all endured globally. The pandemic has hit us all hard in so many ways, but seeing how people grasp the opportunity to live life to the fullest again when they finally get the chance to is really such a beautiful thing. That's the exact energy I felt as I helped Priyanka get ready for her special...
