I was having a little too much fun playing around with my husbands camera a few weeks ago and had quite a run of doing make-up tutorials and taking pics! He had a Nikon SLR (no idea which model now) and it was wonderful! It's amazing what a difference it makes! (Christmas list i think!)
For this look I wanted to do something that was in between a Katy Perry pin up look and also wanted to be able to use some of the beautiful lilac eyeshadow shades around this spring.
Just for fun....I always seem to be pouting on the others!
I used the purple from the original sleek palette, it's very pigmented and has a beautiful sheen to it!
This was clearly before I had my eyebrows threaded and I was going for a strong look!
Me and my husband have been together 6 years in august and have had more than a few lovely valentines together..our first was a surprise and as we were newly engaged, John booked us in at a lovely hotel in the lake district, where he surprised me again with champagne and chocs! Ahh those were the days!
Since then we've had our two little boys and even though we're usually very busy with them, we do try to do something together. This year I bought some beautiful cupcakes from my lovely friend and amazing cake designer Claire of Just darling cakes, and some beautiful heart shaped biscuit lollipops for the boys with icing on saying 'love you ashton' love you logan'!
Claire's cakes are out of this world and I will blog about them in another post but in the meantime, check her amazing talents out here!
For valentines, I usually go for traditional pink/red make-up, but after a day of applying very traditional valentines makeup for clients, I thought I'd try out something different for my night out with other half!
Keeping the lid simple with MAC brulee used my beeluscious palette and the colours moody blue and washed denim to create a winger out shape. On the cheeks I used new Dior blush in strawberry sorbet!
Here's me and the man with the stuck on head! He looks very unimpressed! haha! I know it's a while since but hope you all a lovely time at valentines!
I had forgotten that I've recently had some wonderful feedback and been very lucky to have received some beautiful wedding photo's from some of my bridal clients recently. Lucy and Jonathan's wedding was the middle wedding of 3 in the August Bank holiday which I did the makeup for.
All of Lucy's bridal party we're amazing and really lovely to work with! Mostly they wanted something that toned in well with their gorgeous dresses, however it was great to work with clients who like to wear a little bit more than the very natural look.
