A NEW YEAR
Another year passed and another year full of memories to add to my career. I always say this, but I count myself so lucky to do what I do and work with such lovely down to earth people each day. Ive added some beautiful weddings to my portfolio this year, met some amazing new clients and like minded artists along the way too.
Theres no denying Im a slight beauty junkie. 10 years in the industry will do that to you. Anything beauty related gets me excited but what excites me more is Christmas and all the beautiful limited edition sets and products that launch. I couldn't help but collate my favorites below along with some other products on my wishlist this year.
This year my oldest daughter suffered from asthma. This is something my family has never had trouble with so It was a learning curve for myself and her. We suffered from it most over the cooler months so I introduced a few different things into our lifestyle including this Protect. A. Bed Tencel Mattress Protector. Her Asthma was worse at night so I decided that it may be something to do with dust mites around us, the protein in dust mites can trigger asthma and they float all around us ready to be inhaled!
Brows. We all long for that perfect shape, texture, arch, volume, you name it. Brows are in. They are one of the most important features on our face framing the rest of our features and helping to create a more polished look. I dont no about you but I have spent years working on my brows. Ive tried it all. Waxing, plucking, threading, revitabrow, all the brow growth serums out there to help grow my very sparse and fair brow hairs. With no luck I finally bit the bullet and made an appointment at Lash Noir Ink - which I had to wait 9 months for... and heres my results.
There's something about being apart of Indian weddings that really make me excited. I've learnt SO much about the culture over the last 10 years and have been really lucky to do hair and makeup for several Indian weddings ranging from just one day of events to 5 days of events. Its an exhausting time for all involved, many early starts and long days but reflecting on these images and the memories its all worth it right? I wanted to share a little more from Tarans wedding earlier this year. Her colour scheme was my favorite one I have seen yet. Blush + Gold = Perfection. I couldn't fault anything from Tarans weddings she did the most beautiful job planning.
Recently I was sent the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold and the Everyday Liquid Gold Tanning Dry Oil to try out. Ive been a long time user and lover of the Bondi Sands Tanning Foam so was intrigued to try something new with such good reviews already...
Looking after our skin and hair through any time of the year is important, but actually doing that religiously we all no is difficult. If I had to choose one life time event that I would put 110% effort into my skin routine and care, it would be pre wedding day! I recently got married and I can tell you from experience and from a makeup artist perspective that it is SO important. Im sharing my top 6 tips on getting your skin ready for that big day and the treatment I did a few days before mine...
As a mum, looking after my skin isn't often my number one priority and im sure many other woman can relate that buying expensive skincare also isn't on the top of our lists. However it is important to look after our skin and try and get some routine in place each day. I was sent the NEW by nature Charcoal and Purifying Range to try out...
Last year I became a wife. I remember when i first started my wedding career as a single teen, after each and every wedding i would think to myself what it would be like to be in my clients position on their wedding day getting all glammed up. I only hoped that I would one day be able to experience that. Fast forward a few years and there I am telling my clients about my own wedding plans and who was doing my hair and makeup.
