Early in October I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for the daughter of the owner of Deans Court, Wimborne. Lottie wanted her makeup to be very natural and completely her. She also wanted a nod to a sun kissed tan, by keeping the foundation very light in layers but complementing her own amazing natural tan x
Last year I decided to embark on making a promotional wedding makeup video, to showcase what I do basically. I wanted the video to have an air of wedding morning excitement, whilst showing potential clients what is actually involved ‘behind the scenes’ and how much of my skill I put into every single bridal makeup design. I also wanted to get a couple of local businesses to provide flowers and a very bridal’y’ background in the form of Bleu Bridal Gowns boutique in Southampton. The striking red roses were from Jo Hicks Flowers in Hythe.
I still get chills every time I watch the video as it is a statement to the support I feel I have from other wedding suppliers, and how far I have built my business. So what’s next? Well I’m thinking of doing a set of tutorial videos showing the very basics of looking after your makeup & brushes, and how I create some of my designs.
