clare - hollywood glamour at rushpool hall, North Yorkshire
I am a massive fan on the golden era of Hollywood. My Gran brought me up on the old musicals and a lot of my passion for makeup stems from watching Rita Hayworth, Bette Grable and Marilyn Monroe back in the day and studying their makeup.
So when Clare came to see me said what she had in mind I was so happy. Half way through her trial she had a sneaky peak at how her eyes were looking and cried when she saw her liner. She said she just felt so confident & happy that I knew exactly what she wanted.
Clare looked unbelievable with the Hollywood look, she suited it perfectly with her platinum blonde hair as I'm sure you'll agree! What a bombshell!
Marilyn eat your heart out!
Special thanks to Jules Barron for the stunning images!
In September I had the pleasure of being involved in this BEAU-TI-FUL wedding. Set in the gorgeous Natural Retreats in Richmond, North Yorkshire it was a early 6am start to get Gemma and her ladies ready in time for her 11am wedding!
Gemma had such a clear image of what she over all look for her day which was Pinterest perfect! Queue, Jenny Packham dress, olive leaf crown and boho waves... sooo gorgeous!
At the trial I came up with this look after Gemma showed me some images of makeup she loved with the only specification she definitely wanted a dark matte lip, it totally pulled her whole look together.

Hope you enjoy!
One of my July weddings was at one of the quirkiest venues in the North East, the Crab & Lobster where Laura and Sam got hitched. Laura decided she wanted a glam look so we did a rose gold eye to fit in with her theme. It looked amazing with her colouring and was also complemented by the amazing rose gold sequinned bridesmaids dresses. It was a busy morning getting seven ladies ready in total, they all looked amazing and I had such a gorgeous morning with them all!
With thanks to Georgina Harrison Photography for sharing the stunning images.
2 016 - Wow what a year it was.
Whilst finally putting this post together and looking back at all the amazing moments I've had in 2016 just reminds me how lucky I am to do what I do. Its not just that I get to 'work' in some of the most beautfiul venues around the North East and Yorkshire, surrounded by gorgeous flowers, stunning wedding gowns, shoes, and of course loads of makeup but more importantly getting to work in the special inimate atmosphere that a wedding morning brings, full of laughter and love. Being able to calm a brides nerves and giving her the confidence to walk down the ailse has got to be the best bit for me; I completely love what I do and hope that my passion shines through in my work.
Below are some of my brides that I've had the pleasure to work with last year and I have also added in some of the beautiful images from shoots I have worked on. I must also say a huge thank you to all of the amazing photographers I have worked with who have given me permission to use these images. (Please see underneath each picture for the credit.) Without them I could not show my work properly, as I am certainly no photographer!
I hope you enjoy looking through these images. A huge thank you to all the amazing brides, clients, fellow wedding suppliers I met in 2016, it was a blast!
Roll on 2017!
On a gorgeous day during the August bank holiday weekend I spent the morning with the lovely Praline and her girls getting them ready for her big day. At Praline's trial she had concerns mainly about getting her base perfect, as she said her skin was oily and worried her makeup wouldn't last. We created a look using products suited to her skin type including a good matte primer, a foundation suited to oily skin and a good setting spray to finish. Praline loves a bright lipstick so we went for Atomic by Illamasqua a gorgeous fuchsia violet matte shade.
All these beautiful images were taken by Rob Freeman Photography.
I think she looked so beautiful and we nailed the look she was going for. I loved working with Natasha on her wedding morning, and I wish her and James and long and happy life together.
With Thanks to Mark Hillyer for the stunning images of Natasha in front of the beach huts in Whitby that perfectly bring out the blue in her eyes!
One of my stunning June brides was the lovely Jen. She married Mike at St Mary's Church in Norton followed on by the Treebridge Hotel. Jen's makeup was natural but glam with cool pink undertones that complimented her complexion perfectly. The beautiful images below were taken by the talented Amy Lou Photography.
In March I had the pleasure of being a Bridesmaid for my two best friends Rachelle and Peter. My husband was an Usher and we were both so excited and honoured to be part of their wedding day.
Naturally I wanted to do Rachelle's bridal makeup. It is a pleasure to do any bride's makeup, but its super special when you can do it for your friend, and I was so chuffed when she asked me to.
Knowing Rachelle like I do, it was an unspoken understanding of what she wanted on the day. We shared a Pinterest board, but I already planned what products to use on her before the trial and even knew the perfect lipstick shade. Throughout the years I've known Rachelle she has always worn a red lip so that had to be the only choice! Nars Rita suited her perfectly, completed with a classic smokey eye. A strong look that Rachelle can pull off with ease due to her naturally tanned skin and dark hair.
Rachelle and Peter were married at St Cuthberts Church in Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, followed by the reception at Whinstone View Barn. The wedding couldn't of been more perfect. A fantastic day was had by all!
I hope you enjoy the pictures below that were beautifully taken and kindly shared by Sarah Jane Ethan
