“I wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you for doing the make up and hair for my wedding. The morning could have not of gone any better and I felt extremely relaxed with what was going on.
The hair looked stunning on everyone and I was extremely pleased with the make up which looked gorgeous all day.
I could have not of got a better hair and make-up artist! Thank you so much again!”
I Love Christmas!! What could be better to start celebrating than the launch of the new Christams make-up collections from some of our favourite brands!
The new Limited Edition collection that was launched a few weeks ago is top of my santa wish list.
The collection is based on the metallics seen at some of the top catwalk shows. It contains nail polishes, lipsticks,glosses and some new shimmer face and eye powders. Check out my run down of my favs.

One of summers big trends is all about Luscious lips. I've tested some of these to get you the perfect pout! All have added benefits!:
My Favourite 3 products:
1. Clinique: Vitamin C Smoothie Anti-Oxidant Lip Colour-
This feels like a Lip Balm but looks like a gloss and with the added benefit of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants! This is the perfect little treat!
2. Bobbi Brown: Treatment Lip Shine
If your not a fan of Lipstick but want a hint more colour than gloss these are for you! Gorgeously fresh and moisturising and contains SPF! Perfect for looking after your lips.
3. Dior Addict: Plumping Volume Spectacular Shine Gloss-
I love these glosses! Beautiful range of colours, great shine and Volume Boosting! Always a bonus.
These are all fresh and add the perfect finishing touch to your Summer, Wedding look, while looking after your lips!
Having recently had the pleasure to use some new goodies from their range, I thought I would write a quick review of their products and my favourites.
My Favourite 3 products from the Helen é Cosmetics range:
Powder Blusher in the Pink:
This shade of blusher is ideal for a pretty bridal look, it gives skin a healthy glow but still allows you to focus on your eyes or your fab hair do. I have been using it everyday since I tried it!
I first tried this in the morning after I didn’t have much sleep. This was the first make-up product I used and it made a huge difference to the appearance of brightening up my dark eye circles.
Glamour Colour Gloss- Champagne Pink
A great alternative to lipstick. I loved this gloss because of its gorgeous pinky tone and shimmer, very girly. A must-have for all gloss gals!

There has been lots of talk this week about Primers, so I thought I would add a quick guide to (hopefully) make it a bit clearer!
WHAT ARE PRIMERS? Primers are designed to enhance and improve skins look, feel and texture.
They also help to provide a good base to ensure smooth, even foundation and can help make, make-up last longer.
Just like moisturisers you can get different Primers for different skin types/concerns.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF PRIMER
TIP: Always exfoliate your skin first for a smooth, even application and make make sure you wear gloves to avoid orange hands.
Try one of these for a fabulous fake tan:
1. Fake Bake Self Tan Mouse
Beautiful colour and very easy to apply. You can see the colour while you apply so you don't miss any bits.
2. Model Co Airbrush Body Bronzer
Quick to apply, nice colour and it doesn't feel like you have any product on your skin.
3. Lancome Flash Bronzer Leg Gel
Perfect for nights out, you can apply the tan and it develops in an hour. Nice golden shimmer. Let's show off those pins!
4. St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan
No fuss, apply this like you would your normal moisturiser and you'll be glowing before you know it!
5. L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Fresh Feel Gel
Great value and easy to apply. This self tan doesn't dry out the skin like others do.
