  1. 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.

  2. Powder is a key product to helping your foundation stay on!  I'm all for dewy, glowing skin that looks like skin particularly for bridal clients so powder does not have to look cakey, ageing or as mattifying as some people think it does. Just a light dusting will set your make-up and get rid of any excess shine and control the natural oils in your skin (remember we want dewy not shiny!).

    I'm currently using Smashbox Photo Set Finishing powder in my kit and find it works great. It's a very finely ground translucent powder which glides on the skin to leave a lovely velvety finish without being drying.
