  1. So as we wave goodbye to another year and say hello to 2016 its always seems a good time to reflect. I'd like to wish all my clients, brides, fellow make-up artists, suppliers and anyone else I've had the pleasure of working with over the last year a Happy New Year!

    2015 marked my 10 year anniversary as a freelance hair and make-up artist and was a busy year for me with a record number of weddings as well as party hair and make-ups, make-up lessons and hen parties. I also worked on a TV documentry, advert and numerous photoshoots having my work featured on some of the top wedding blogs and printed in Living North Magazine, Belle Bridal Magazine and several editions of LOCO Magazine including the front cover of 3 editions and not to forget I also did a photoshoot that made it onto the front of a novel and also had a shoot featured on Grazia online!  I was also listed as one of the top 5 wedding make-up artists in York, North Yorkshire by the Wedding make-up artists directory. 

    Going into 2016 I have the largest number of advanced bookings I've ever had for the year ahead including a couple confirmed for 2017 so if you are interested in booking with me please don't leave it too late! I've had some great feedback/thank yous from brides this last year who have not only been happy with my hair and make-up work but also were thankful for my friendly, relaxed manner on the morning of their wedding. Here's to 2016 being another great year!

  2. I have had the pleasure of working with the guys at LOCO magazine several times on various shoots with the most recent being a fab fashion/cover shoot around Hull Marina.  Fresh from ITVs Love Island the gorgeous Cally Jane Beech was the cover star modelling for the day.  I went for a deep purple and gold 'spotlight' smokey eye and soft lip.
