The 29th of July is more fondly known in the make-up world as National Lipstick Day, so what better than to have had my work featured online for Flanelle Magazine on that day! The work was created in collaboration with one of my all time favourite creatives Lee Scullion to showcase the results that can be achieved using the Jo Leversuch Brush Collection from Untitled No 1.
These up close and personal beauty shots leave nothing to hide, but only bold beauty on display. The skin prepped with SUQQU's Aquafons range allowed for the Ariane Poole Ultimate Face Tint to seamlessly melt...
A brief but bold blog today to showcase some of my latest work with Vigour Magazine. It was a great opportunity to have some fun meeting new like minded creatives on this collaboration shoot 'Be In 5'.
Captured in the early hours of the morning back at the start of spring, I love the way the photographer Stef Mic captured model Megan Sison evoking the feeling of freshness in the air that day. Styled by Sally Minns with assistant Keeley Hoggins on board, this shoot is giving chic, fresh and effortless vibes against the backdrop of the wonderful city of Newcastle.
If you know me well or you follow me on social media, you'll probably have picked up on how my love for tea is strong and that I don't like strong tea! It was even my choice for this Eddy Maynard shoot for which he was capturing what make's people happy!
So what is the perfect cup of tea? For me it depends on my emotions and how I want to feel as to what type of tea I pick up and how I brew it. I find the act of making and drinking tea has a deeply ceremonial aspect to it and I like to take the time to soak up the great joy in reaching for my china cups and old teapots to create the perfect...
I loved the trip to the Scottish Borders to be part of Caroline & Shea's wedding. Held in the beautiful Chirnside/ Kelso area, this part of the country never fails to impress me and makes for an idyllic wedding day backdrop.
With the weather blessing the lovely couple with a warm glorious day the countryside setting truly came to life under the warm glow of the sun.
A private wedding took place on the family farm where I endeavoured to replicate the aforementioned glow from the sunshine in Caroline's bridal make-up. It was important to Caroline her look was in keeping with the outdoor location...

As I am sat writing this blog, Jade and her husband are soaking up their post wedding bliss whilst honeymooning in Italy. With italy in ming and reflecting on Jade's stunning wedding style I couldn't help but think this quote by Da Vinci summed up this first look at their wedding album so well.
I had met Jade many years ago at her best friends wedding so it was a huge compliment to me that she had seen my style of make-up and wanted it for her own wedding. She is all about...

I'm very specific when it comes to the skin base as you may know, it's what I am most known for in the make-up world and it takes a special product for me to consider using it as part of my perfected routines. I'm not a huge lover of layering lots of product onto the skin, so I can be very selective in what I'm using but as you will see in my video below I think Nanoblur has won me over to be worth adding in the kit!
As soon as I received the Nanoblur I knew I had to try it as soon as possible, it's become infamous since its use on HBO's Euphoria and all their awe inspiring...
