Skin Camouflage

October 30, 2018. No comments.

      I started off my makeup career working in the glitzy world of the  Fashion Industry and working with models, designers and top makeup artists. As much as I loved this industry and the creativity it offered. I always wanted to do something to help people, having personally suffered with low self esteem and confidence i was aware how much makeup helped people and could always understand when someone came to have their makeup done but arrived in a full face of makeup. Often clients would be apologising for wearing makeup saying “I just can’t leave the house without it” I [read on]

Firstly Happy new year to everyone! We have been a little quiet recently as things have been super busy. 2017 was an extremly busy year for us and 2018 is looking just as busy.. We completed over 28 weddings. Worked on several  Films,TV productions and Photoshoots. As well as many skin camouflage consultations. We also had our popular makeup courses running throughout the year. And we  set up a wedding, events and hen party venue in Bolney.

Contouring made easy

February 12, 2015. No comments.

Nowdays when I go to do a trial or makeover I am always asked about contouring and can I give them cheekbones, a smaller nose, a slimmer jaw and forehead I blame Kim kardashian for this obsession, don't get me wrong i love her makeup but as I try very hard and politely to explain to my clients that contouring for wedding makeup or day to day makeup is very different from catwalk and Photoshoots and this is due to lighting. Off course we can do contouring but for daily makeup it needs to be done right to [read on]

So far in the last year we have run six three week intensive courses and fourteen five day courses. I am also in the middle of a private course, as we are very flexible at the academy and like to be able to offer tailor made courses [read on]

Skin camouflage is a temporary [read on]

This blog is a little later than planned! But it's peak wedding season,so been super busy getting organised for all my lovely brides and our makeup courses I thought I would do this blog about my recent trip to zimbabwe and how I coped practically makeup free. As most people that know me well or that have been unfortunate enough to have to travel with me, I don't travel lightly and this is usually down to carrying around 10kg of makeup in my suitcase and hand luggage! This is no joke! It's not that I wear 10kg or makeup or even take [read on]
