Brides and Beauty is 5 years old Today!

I have been in the beauty business for 15 years now but only set up Brides and Beauty in 2006. Its now 5 years old today and when I think what I started with its gone from strength to strength and I’ve loved every moment!

Over the years I have had some great experiences and here are some of my highlights over the last 5 years!

Discovering 3 amazing make up brands!!

I love make up and cosmetics and if i have too much I give it away. I like to make other people happy and i’d rather it went to a good home than just sit on a shelf in my bathroom. I will be doing a giveaway on here so keep checking back for news!

Brides and beauty evolved because I wanted to offer a service using my skills and knowledge for everyone – Brides, and all women in general. Last year i started this افضل توصيات فوركس blog and this year I launched the pamper parties and there is more news to come!

Halloween Make Up for Charity!

On Saturday night I got together with some of the ladies that I do Charity workshops with, for Look Good Feel Better!

Look Good Feel Better is all about helping women going through chemotherapy! There are workshops all over the UK. You can find your nearest one here. This is a charity close to my heart and I wanted to help raise some money for them!

Because it was Halloween we did makeovers on people and ourselves and the lucky pub landlord got to have his legs waxed. What a fun night we had and raised £350.00 too!

My Look!!

Happy Halloween to you all and Be Safe!!!

Model in a Bottle – A Make Up Must Have

What can I say but I truly click LOVE this product. Its the must have of my kit now. I use it professionally and personally. Model in a bottle is a light spray that fixes your make up all day and night. If you hate your foundation rubbing off on your clothes then this product is for you.

All the brides I use it on love it. If you go to the gym wearing it you come out looking the same as you went in. I use it on myself too.

Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt Brushing Exfoliating Scrub

Exfoliation is one of my top must do treatments. I’m always on the look out for new products. A couple of weeks ago in my Glossy Box I received satchets of Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt brushing.

body scrub

When I opened the pack I was pleased to see that it was already mixed with oil. The smell is good enough to eat. Citrus aromas oozed from the packet. I applied it to dry skin and the oils made my skin silky smooth for a few days afterwards. I love this product and will definitely use it again.

Dead Sea Magik ScrubAs you can see from the picture its oily so that makes application easier. Make sure you’re standing in the bath or shower when you apply it. It can make the floor very slippery so be careful. It rinsed off easily without drying my skin.

The RRP is £13.30 for a 500g tub from Shop for Spa

Its also available at John Lewis, Debenhams, Harrods, Selfridges, Holland & Barrett and independent retailers,

DIY Bridal Make Up – Good or Bad?

I have noticed the rise in the number of brides that have decided to do their own make up for their wedding day. I know its what i do professionally but i wanted to point out that once your wedding day is over you have to live with the images forever. I never make anyone look like someone else. I only do a brides make up after a thorough consultation.

My guide is always to enhance what someone already has. If you normally wear very little make up i will make you look very natural but flawless. Your wedding day is special and you should look special too.

Things to consider?

  • Does your normal make up last for 12 hours without retouching?
  • Do you know how to contour the shape of your face?
  • Can you make your lips even in shape and length?
  • Does your foundation leave a stripe around your jawline?
  • Can you lengthen you lashes using just mascara?

A make up artist will have the skills needed to avoid these things. The last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is how your make up looks!

Some brides are very capable of doing their own make up and i’m not saying they shouldn’t. If you would like to do your own but need help then consider a make up lesson.

I would love to hear from you if you did your own make up and if you’re happy with the images! I would also like to hear from you if you regret doing your own make up!

A Hawaiian Holiday!!

This year I went on holiday to Hawaii and I can’t tell you how beautiful and amazing a place Oahu is. Before I went I had the pleasure of chatting to an amazing photographer that’s based in Oahu called Jeannemarie on Twitter. Before I got there we organised a day that would be convenient for both of us to do a shoot on the beach.

I have the pleasure in just posting a few of her amazing photos and if you’re ever in Hawaii look her up. She’s a fantastic wedding, honeymoon and fun photographer!

Check out her website here for more great images!! I highly recommend Jeannemarie!
