WEDDING STYLING: CHIC CITY WEDDING

Thank you to Absolutely Weddings for this incredible feature online and in their magazine.

Packed with wedding styling inspiration, this chic city wedding at elegant Bloomsbury House is dressed for timeless glamour using a muted and sophisticated palette of lush botanicals and glass with accents in burnished gold and richest red. 

Team Glam have created the bridal hair and make-up, placing strong focus on eyes and brows by using a smoky palette of greys to mauves. Understated, dewy shades on cheeks and lips balance the eye make-up while maintaining a soft and natural bridal look. The bride’s hair is styled in a relaxed up-do featuring loose curls and a bejewelled hair decoration, the perfect foil for the elegant slimline cut and plunge neck of the Carolina Herrera gown.

Berta Bridal Trunk Show at The Wedding Club

Last week I had the pleasure of being the lead makeup artist on the Berta Bridal Trunk show at the Wedding Club in Knightsbridge. It was an absolute joy to work with the best team that London has to offer for bridal styling, Team Glam. 

It was a full on afternoon of session styling with 10 models from 'The Girly Show' showcasing bridal hair and makeup trends for 2016 that complimented the iconic designs from Berta Bridal. 

As you will see from the images below, I certainly had a great night and its always a pleasure to see so many of my industry friends!

Berta Bridal Trunk Show

I'm looking forward to being the lead Makeup Artist this Thursday 21st January at the Berta Bridal Trunk show at the Wedding Club, Knightsbridge. 

I will be taking Mario from Team Glam along with me to be able to cover all 10 models in 4 hours! Its going to be a pretty intense afternoon but we have some incredible looks planned to compliment the gowns. 

I particularly love working in London on editorial events as it gives me great satisfaction when everything comes together. 

See below some looks I have created before featuring Berta Bridal Collections. 


Chelsea Beautique Lash Extensions

I'm always on the look out for the best quality products to offer my clients and it really is important to me that they are able to try new things and have access to the latest trends in the world of beauty.

This week I've added Chelsea Beautique Lash Extensions to my makeup kit; a recent discovery which has stirred major excitement within me. I have been utterly impressed by the quality of these lashes, which look naturally beautiful when captured in real life and on camera.

I stumbled across the Chealsea Beautique range at the Professional Beauty Show in February, whilst working with the Airbase Pro Team, and I soon discovered their impressive range of lashes really compliment every make up look. I've been using synthetic lashes for many years but have been officially converted to these 100% authentic Mink extensions. The even more positive news is that they are 100% cruelty free, individually hand made and hypoallergenic (animal lovers rejoice!)

Mink lashes have been available worldwide for some time now, but usually only in the most prestigious of salons. An average set, including application, usually costs around £250-£500, so its truly wonderful that the experts at Chealsea beautique have managed to create beautiful strip lashes at a fraction of the cost. Although these lash extensions are more expensive than synthetic lashes, they certainly warrant their price tag. They are lighter, more flexible, softer and If looked after you can wear them up to 20 times! Yes, that really is 20 times!

Rebel and Romance bridal boudoir shoot.

After such a successful response from the Team Glam shoot back in January I couldn't help but start planning another one! I've always loved the idea of Boudoir but have avoided bringing this to my portfolio as it doesn't hold a great reputation in the UK, until now that it! 

I've been following the work of Stormy at Rebel and Romance for a couple of years and she is truly one of the nicest, kindest and most patient photographers in London! I don't really need to say to much about her work as its speaks for itself. Its beautiful, elegant and best of all very empowering for the women she has the pleasure of photographing! 

I wanted to work alongside Stormy with the Team Glam girls for so many reasons, but mainly to show as always, the standard of creativity that is available to our real brides from all of us at Team Glam.  

I hope you enjoy the images and you will no doubt be seeing these on lots of national wedding blogs and magazines, but for now I share with you my beautiful model Violetta Prossinger.

Pro Team Airbase Makeup- Professional Beauty London

I've just finished 2 days working at the Professional Beauty show at London's Excel centre as part of the Airbase Pro Team. I'm really excited to have joined the Pro Team for Airbase and I will be training professional and aspiring makeup artists in the art of airbrushing from March 2015. 

We had 2 non stop days at the show giving demos and talking to many professionals about the art of airbrushing, and why for us as professional makeup artists Airbase is the only brand we choose. 

I started Airbrushing with Airbase just over 2 years ago, on average I attend around 80/90 weddings per year with 90% of my bridal clients choosing to have Airbase and these are the reasons why. 

LONG LASTING- Airbase has an unrivalled durability due to its unique silicone ingredient. Its heat resistant so on long summer days it stays in place perfectly. 

NATURAL FINISH- Airbase has a great coverage whilst still looking very flawless and natural on the skin. A very fine layer of Airbase Makeup is perfect for most of my bridal clients. Its gives a fresh dewy look to the skin whilst still photographing perfectly. 

LUXURIOUS FINISH- You would never know you had this makeup on, Airbase is so light on the skin, it doesn't clog pores and allows the skin to breath. 

I've always been particularly interested in Silicone based foundations as all the most prestigious brands use this ingredient at the heart of their formulas. I always do lots of research into what I can offer my clients and I'm extremely proud to say that there is no doubt in my mind I'm using the best.
