One of my favourite products Pixi 2013 Crayon combo-Wide awake and a link to a video I filmed in New York.

So the crayon combo is a duo ended pen I use it all the time to *highlight & lift* and I like this film, you can't see me I am droning on in the background :)

But this is one of my *secret* techniques to create a beautiful, soft contour, it lifts and refines the bone structure in such an imperceptible way.

Stills from the film:

A link to the actual film if you would like to see it.

Wedding- Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey).

Make up happening and the beautiful dress
What a send off! Not for me obvs :) "Thank you for doing the make up bye" whizz...boom! LOL!

I was thrilled to be asked to do the make up for a wedding at Highclere Castle which is known more commonly as Downton Abbey. I was unprepared for just how beautiful and majestic it actually is.
I was working alongside one of my all-time session hair stylist favourites and together we created a chic timeless look for the bride.

I wanted to create a look that enhanced the natural beauty of the bride and would fit seamlessly with the classic feel at the wedding, I used velvety matte base, peaches to burnished bronze on the eyes, single lashes from medium to small along the lash line. Contoured & spot highlighted. delicate peach blusher and a lip colour that I created for the bride.

My photos are next as I just could not help myself the drive up to the castle. It was so beautiful and the green lush, manicured lawns even had *breeding* and after rain of biblical proportions the sun shone.

To see more pictures of the beautiful wedding a link is here, it really is stunning!
