Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day! Hiring a professional makeup artist to do your makeup ensures just that. Having a good makeup artist on the day is just as important as having a good photographer!

If you need more reasons then let me tell you a few:

Stress free on your wedding day

When a professional makeup artist does your makeup on the wedding day it will be done well. You will not need to worry about it. You can relax and be pampered. It will give you a chance to sit down on a day that will surely be manic.

Quality products

A makeup artists kit is stocked with tried and tested products. These have been tried in front of camera and also on other brides so they will stay on all day. This added to the professional application will ensure the best look for you all day.

Pro tips and tricks

Makeup artist were trained in enhancing your best features and making you look your best with little ‘tricks’ and also to look your best on camera too. They will also make it last all day.

Colour selection

A makeup artist studied (and practiced) to find the right colour tones for you in foundation, lipstick and all the way through to eye shadow colour. They will also make sure that you don’t look like you are wearing a mask due to a different colour on your neck…

So… will you be hiring a makeup artist for your most memorable day of your life?

If your answer is YES, don’t forget to look around and research. You get what you pay for, so I would advise you not to look for a cheap deal as it might be disappointing. You want someone who has a style you can relate to. Have a trial with them 6-8 weeks before the wedding so you work out what you want to look like on your wedding day. Once agreed you can just focus on the rest of the preparations. Enjoy!

The importance of cleansing your skin

Although makeup will mask problem skin we must not forget that the best way to look beautiful is to take care of our skin and get it look healthy and glowing.
 It makes such a difference to your makeup!


Skin is the first barrier to protect you from the elements.
It needs your support and care to do this important job. Of course illness, stress, not drinking enough fluids can take their toll, too. Yet looking after your skin can make those signs go away quicker.


I am currently working for a cosmetics company that also produces skincare. Before I started working with them I have to admit I wasn’t using a cleanser, a toner or a moisturiser… let alone serums and masks… I thought it was a waste of time…

I was asked by my colleges to try the whole routine for a few days and I realised what a difference it makes!

Try for yourself.



First of all you will need to answer a few questions:


-Do you have shine on your face? – If the answer is “yes, all over” your skin is OILY

-Does your skin get tight? – if “yes, all over” then it’s DRY

If the answer to those questions is a yes on certain parts of your face then you have COMBINATION skin.

If the answer is “no” to both questions then it is NORMAL

Now according to your answer find the right products for your skin type
.
When unsure of what to use ask an expert in the shop.


The routine starts with a CLEANSER. You can choose between cleansing milk to wipe off with tissue or oil, gel, foam… that you need to wash off with water.

After that always use a TONER to make sure all the remaining dirt is wiped away and to rebalance your skin.

When that is done it is time to put your MOISTURISER on. For best results use massaging motion. For the day use a protecting cream and for the night nourish it with a richer one.


You can use a face scrub twice a week – don’t use too often as that could lead to sensitivity. Always use a scrub on clean skin.



A skincare routine doesn’t have to take long, it can be done in a couple of minutes.
You will love the new you!

Go on, I know you are tempted!
