Hi All,

Welcome to my new blog ’Diary of a Make Up Artist’……well what a busy week!! Bridal season is in full swing resulting in Beauty Call and myself having truly manic schedules!!

I met two brides this week whose hair and make up trials were a pleasure to undertake with them both being delighted with their resulting looks. The brides choose very different styles for their eyes:

- One kept it natural, having the eyes nice and light with neutral brown tones using Jane Iredale Cappuccino Duo and the hair all up and curled with the front sections softly swept back topped off with a diamante tiara.

- The other choosing dramatic smokey eyes for which I used Urban Decay Oil Slick shadow with Vie Gold Mine swept over the top. For the hair a blow dry to give lots of root lift with a small section of height at the front to hold in a small fascinator.

Earlier this week I met Beauty Call franchisee’s Nicky and Danni for lunch, it was great to catch up and talk about all the work that we have coming up and the people we are meeting.

It is full steam ahead with us all busy planning Tips, Tea and Tiara’s so keep an eye on our website for upcoming details. These will be small bespoke events for brides-to-be where we will talk about make-up and skin care, as well as having our recommend suppliers on hand with the latest tips. A focal point of these days will also be yummy cupcakes and lots of tea!!

I recently met with photographer Zoe Hardwick who specialises in Wedding photography and so she is now one of my recommended suppliers. If you would like to know more about Zoe and her work visit

Also this week I have been planning a shoot for the Beauty Call You Tube channel. All seven franchisees are really excited about bringing you new clips showing short snippets of how to’s. From applying false eyelashes to using airbrush make up, there is something for everyone! If you have any suggestions on items you would like to see please get in touch and let me know, I would love to hear from you...

Spray tan season is here!! The weather is really disappointing as I love the sunshine. It is great to be able to give people a fab tan and I have been doing that this week with clients who are happy to have great colour when the weather outside is rubbish!!

I recently took a trip down to my local John Lewis makeup counters. My favourite buy was some Laura Mercier Foundation Primer which I have started using on brides-to-be. I love the great matte finish that helps foundation smooth over the skin.

Speak to you again next week
