2022/23 bookings.

Hi there, I just wanted to touch in with you as since losing my Mum in July,  I have still been trying my hardest to continue as normal.  I even worked on a wedding the day she passed away.  It is what my Mum would have wanted me to do.

I have managed to work on all but one of my weddings, (and this was rearranged in advance of the wedding).  It's been tough, and it is still early days.  It's only been 3 months.

Since July I have had 16 weddings!  I have 4 weddings left for this year.

I have a good support network, great family and 2/3 very good friends, (you really do find out who your friends are at times like these!)  I also have 2 great furbabies, which I am also very grateful for! (oh, and yoga!!)

I know some of you have booked for makeup lessons and I have been doing one or two, here and there, but, I hope you can appreciate, I need to take a little time for me, to grieve and to get my mojo back...and I will eventually!

I wanted to thank you all for being so kind and understanding to me during this very difficult time.  I have had so many lovely messages of support.  I really do appreciate them all.

If you have booked in for a makeup lesson, please be assured that it will happen at some point, if not before the New Year then early next year.

If you would like to contact me to organise it and for us to mutually agree a good time for us both, then please do.

I already have bookings for 2022 and 2023 and I shall be looking forward to meeting new clients and returning ones.  2022 is near enough fully booked.

I have worked with some amazing people over the years and recently and I am very grateful to each and every one of those people for choosing me as their Make-up artist and for giving me the opportunity to meet them and work with them.  It has really helped me.

This week I am starting my second online Art course with The Glasgow school of Art, I really did enjoy the first one and I can't wait to get cracking again!

Last week we we drawing hands, (not my strong point and I had never drawn them before...) but I got there in the end and I really enjoyed it.  We had to use charcoal and a putty eraser.

Here are just some of the wonderful weddings and clients I have worked with recently...

My first instalment on London based, Best British blog - Bride and Tonic is now live!

I decided to keep it simple and to the point and thought I would begin with discussing how to choose the right foundation and how to apply it -   I hope you enjoy reading it - let me know what you think!

A busy week ahead with makeup lessons, makeup trials and 2 weddings this weekend - one at the lovely Healing Manor hotel.

I'm going to keep my blog updates sweet and to the point, as who has time to read lots?! I know I haven't!

I hope you have had a great Easter break x


Bride and Tonic.

Bride and tonic Make-up artist and competition news.

I am honoured to be London based, Best British blog - Bride and Tonic's regular Make-up artist contributor.  Here is my first blog post, I hope you like it -

There's lots of tips about what you need to know about hiring a Pro Make-up artist - it could save you a lot of time, heartache and money!

Also, to tip you off about a Mother's day competition I will be running shortly.  As you are subscribed to my emails you get to know about this first.  If you would like to nominate someone to win a Make-up lesson with me, (whether it be for your friend, Mum, Grandmother or neighbour even), please email me on with details of why you would like to do so and why you think they should win.  (Please note, this will not be done on Mother's day, but at a mutually convenient time.  Once announced the lesson needs to be done within 3 months of winning.  This is non-transferrable to any other service, i.e, wedding make-up.)  Deadline for entries is the 31st of March.

Just to also let you know, bookings are now being taken for 2020, (limited availability) and also for 2021 so it is never too early to book!

Rosie.  Make-up by Tina Brocklebank.


Rosie wanted a natural, classic look for her wedding day, which is of course, my signature look.  She was a pleasure to work with and very easy going.

As she was wearing white, this indicated that a brighter pop of colour is required on the face, otherwise, she would look washed out in the photos.

The lip colour here is by Charlotte Tilbury, Hollywood lips in Sweetheart and then I layered Liv it up on the top.

Eyes were softly defined with some beautiful, natural false eyelashes.

Cleatham hall is a wonderful venue and I loved working there!

Beautiful Bride, Katie.

Bohemian Bride, Katie.

I had the pleasure recently of working with the gorgeous Katie, for her wedding in Lincolnshire.

Make-up wise, Katie prefers a very natural look and I didn't want to distract the attention away from those amazing flowers!

Light foundation was applied and a spot of powder, eyes were kept very light with a tiny bit of definition and some very small false lashes.

A tiny flush of cream blush and then the spot on lip colour from Bobbi Brown to compliment the whole look, Art stick in Sunset orange.  Underneath I applied an Aqua lip pencil from Make-up Forever in 17 c.  No gloss for a modern look.

I think you will agree, Katie looks incredible and I can't wait to see rest of the official photos!

Bridal makeup - Lindsey

Wedding/bridal make-up

I had the pleasure of being the lovely Lindsey's Make-up artist today, for her wedding today at The Brackenborough hotel, Louth.  Lindsey had booked me well in advance, about 2 years prior to her wedding day as she was set on me being her Make-up artist, so I was very flattered!

Lindsey loves make-up and so I wasn't afraid to go to work, and really accentuate her lovely features.

She has lovely skin and I like to really let the skin glow through the make-up, I don't like to see heavy make-up, especially on a Bride.

A smokey eye was achieved by using the Charlotte Tilbury Rock chick palette and then amazing sparkle by using the Stila magnificent metals eyeshadow in Smoky storm over the top.  False lashes were used of course!

For cheeks I used a Bobbi Brown pot rouge and then on the top of the cheekbones I used the Charlotte Tilbury Bar of gold highlighter, to create that lovely sheen.

Lips - I used Charlotte Tilbury Pink venus lip pencil and then Hollywood lips in Platinum blonde, finished with gloss in Blondie pink.

I think you will agree, she looks absolutely beautiful and was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I also had the pleasure of doing her Mum's and her sister's make-up, (not shown.)

Hayley at The Orangery, Settrington.

Beautiful Bride, Hayley.

I had the pleasure of being Make-up artist to Hayley, Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom plus 5 Bridesmaids this weekend!

It was an early start for a 3 pm wedding.  The venue was The Orangery, Settrington, North Yorkshire.  I haven't worked there before, it was absolutely stunning!

Hayley and her wedding party got ready at the nearby cottage which is right next to a quaint little church and then The Orangery is next to that.  It is a family that own the estate and they live on the grounds too.  Apparently they only take on a few weddings each year and places are very limited, it is very exclusive.

Hayley is a dance teacher and is used to and loves make-up, she wasn't afraid of a little bit more make-up than what she would usually wear for daytime.

I absolutely loved doing her make-up as she has the most gorgeous big eyes and skin to die for!

I used mainly Bobbi Brown products to even out her skin, eye makeup was kept neutral and I added some long, wispy false eyelashes from Ardell which complimented her big eyes and made them the focal point.

I love to see freckles through foundation, I don't personally like to see a thick layer of foundation, especially on a young lady, I don't think it looks very nice and it is just not needed. Everything was kept light and classic.  I added some cream blush and a smidge of highlighter.  For lips I used a nude pink shade from Charlotte Tilbury, (after the wedding Josh, the Groom said that he was impressed with the lipstick as it didn't come off when he kissed her!)

Hayley sent me a message the day after the wedding to say how much she loved her makeup and how it lasted all evening without one make-up re-touch!

My Husband and I were very lucky to be invited to the wedding too and we thoroughly enjoyed it, it was really magical!

Hair was by Alison Jenner hairstylist.

Meghan Markle bridal make-up.

Meghan Markle Bridal make-up : Understated, beautiful make-up.

I was so pleased to see Meghan Markle's bridal make-up was very pared down at the weekend, she looked SO beautiful! Daniel Martin who is her friend, and Make-up artist, did her make-up for her wedding day and so chose not to stray from her usual signature look.

Meghan doesn't wear a lot of make-up usually, so as I always say to ladies who don't wear a lot of make-up, you need to be comfortable and you need to look like you.  You would feel so out of your comfort zone if you wore something dramatic.

Meghan is known for her "5 minute face" and she has said she regularly massages her face to enhance her cheekbones.  Apparently she uses Creme De La Mer The eye balm Intense and Tatcha Brightening serum, she also swears by Revitalash lash serum for long, strong eyelashes.

Her usual beauty routine is definitely minimal and believes in the "less is more" approach - Meghan, I salute you! I love the way she always lets her skin look like skin and allows those beautiful freckles to show through, (something I always preach!)

For her 5 minute face she would do the following -

Use a bit of YSL Touche Eclait under her eyes, curl her lashes and apply mascara, apply chap stick and a smidge of blush and she's good to go!

To amp it up she would apply MAC Teddy eyeliner, (which is brown and has flecks of gold in it.) Laura Mercier foundation primer radiance, YSL Babydoll mascara or Diorshow Iconic mascara, Clarins Hydra Quench moisture replenishing balm, NARS blush in Orgasm and Very Victoria lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury.

For her wedding day base wise, I read her favourite foundation is Giorgio Armani Luminous silk foundation, which, apart from having beautiful, polished skin already, this foundation enhances that, and you will have seen how radiant and polished she looked.  Simply stunning.

Brows were defined with pencil, (I would have liked it a little softer if I am completely honest, but who am I to judge!?)

Eyes - a soft taupe shade was used on the lid and then the MAC eye pencil in Teddy perhaps.  This was applied along the top and a little bit underneath too.  I think either cluster false lashes were used, (as I did spot a little bit of glue on the lash line) or some very natural full set ones, just to add a bit more thickness and length.

Cheeks were flushed with a beautiful peachy shade, very minimal and sheeny, to add even more radiance.

Lips were a pale pink/peach undertone., which could have been NARS orgasm lip balm?

As celeb Makeup artist Daniel Sandler rightfully tweeted, (and I retweeted!), "To all the Brides-to-be, you don't have to copy Kim Kardashian's makeup. Hooray for Meghan and her fresh faced beauty.  Way to go!"  There was NO CONTOURING in sight or Instagram makeup reference...of course!

What an absolutely beautiful, Bride and I am so happy for them both.  I loved watching the wedding and shed a few tears along the way too.

Here's to natural, classic, understated make-up, (*happy dance.)
