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.)

Wedding make-up artist of the year 2016 for East Midlands.

For those of you following me on Facebook, etc, you will know I entered The Wedding Industry awards and won the Wedding make-up artist of the year award for the East Midlands region.  This week I took a trip to London where the nationals were held, at the Cafe de Paris in Leicester square - it was a great experience.  I did not manage to win but receiving the feedback and amazing comments from all of my lovely clients made me realise, I am already a winner.

Right outside our hotel we were also lucky enough to see there was the premiere going on for The Revenant.  We saw Tom Hardy and Leonardo Dicaprio - very exciting!

Thank you all so much for taking the time to vote for me and for all of your lovely messages of support - it means the world to me.  Upwards and onwards!!xxx

Make-up lessons galore and a Happy new year to you all!xxx

I have been inundated recently with requests for make-up lessons.  From Mothers who are at their wits ends from their daughters contouring habits, Husbands who have been constantly asked for a make-up lesson with me and also from ladies requiring help with applying their own make-up - we are never taught at school are we!! I believe this should be part of the curriculum!  Make-up is such a powerful tool.

Christmas has been a very busy period for me and I have loved helping all of my lovely clients.  I have also had the pleasure to work with some amazing, professionals recently and this past year.  This has been my busiest year to date.  2016 is nearly booked up and 2017 is looking very busy too.  I really am so grateful and love working with you all.  Thank you all so much for all of your lovely e-mails, comments and for following me on Facebook, etc.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy, healthy new year.

Never underestimate the power of make-up, not only is it good for you in your appearance, but it goes hand in hand with your well-being and confidence.  A slick of lipstick and you can feel better instantly!  Happy new year!xxx

Review for Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist

My make-up columns and make-up lessons...

I am very lucky to be a columnist for The Lincoln Journal and The Lincolnshire Journal magazines, (I also write columns for The Wedding Journal too.)

My most recent column in The Wedding Journal is talking about why you should book a Pro make-up artist on your wedding day.  Here's a snippet, "Weddings are a time of celebration and happiness and I am always honoured to be a part of someones' special day.  When choosing a Make-up artist, you can't beat a first hand recommendation or review.  Ask around and check out their social media accounts and portfolio too.  See how long they have been in the industry for, (I sang in the bathroom last night, it doesn't make me a singer, if you know what I mean.)  Getting your make-up applied professionally is a luxury, but with all things luxury there is a cost associated with it.  Yes, you could do your make-up yourself or get your friend, but would it look the same? and do you need that stress on your wedding day?  Price wise, a Pro make-up artist will charge what they are worth.  You are not just paying for their expertise, experience or application, but upkeep of their kit, time, travel, cleaning and sanitising their kit, answering e-mails, etc, etc.  Make-up artists work so hard, in and out of hours.  Basically, you do get what you pay for.  When you have chosen your make-up artist, book! A reputable make-up artist has a packed schedule and while that says great things about them and their work, it means you have to get a contract in place, (a professional will already have this in place as standard.)  I don't recommend not having a trial before the wedding day, and actually, I don't take Brides on without this anyway, it is far too important.  Not only should the makeup artist be amazing at make-up but you need someone who is going to be reliable, professional, keep you calm and also works well under pressure, you also need to have a good rapport with them.  I have lost count of the number of times I have given reassuring hugs, passed a tissue and wiped tears, or poured a glass of champers to a nervous Bride...but its all part of the job.  Make sure you wear waterproof products for obvious reasons! You don't want to have panda eyes or streaks ruining your look!  Lastly, embrace the whole experience of having a professional apply your make-up for you.  It is a most enjoyable experience and one which you will remember for the rest of your life."

My October Lincolnshire Journal "Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist knows good make-up..." talks about dark under eye circles, (something which I have myself.)  Products I recommend are a good eye cream, Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer, Laura Mercier secret camouflage palette, Louise Young cosmetics, Barry M concealers, Amazing Cosmetics concealers, YSL Touche Eclat, a Beauty Blender, Chanel powder, (if required) and Lancome Effacernes concealer.

There is no denying, that make-up can be our best friend, if applied correctly and use the correct products.  Make-up can enhance us and also play down the areas that we are not so comfortable with.  Don't be afraid of experimenting a little and investing in yourself.  Make-up is such a useful tool and a skill for life!  (I have been working with lots of lovely ladies recently, on make-up lessons, all ages.)  It always brings me such pleasure and is a real buzz when I make that person happy, just by applying a little bit of make-up, it can really boost someones' confidence and well being.  Make-up, to me, is so much more than applying it, it has such a positive effect on a person.  It really can make all the difference to your day.  Heres a few examples of some make-up lessons and reviews too...
