HD Brows offer at the Sussex Sanctuary

Now fully trained in the award winning Official HD Brows treatment!

I’m offering a special introductory price of £20 at the beautiful new clinic The Sussex Sanctuary in Heathfield on Tuesday 8th May 2018.

So what are HD Brows?

HD Brows is a seven step brow shaping treatment including tinting, waxing, threading and finishing techniques to create perfectly defined brows for your face shape. Whether your brows are over plucked or simply unruly, this treatment can help you.

Can anyone have the treatment?

A patch test is required 48 hours before the treatment to check you will have no reaction to the tint. The treatment can be tailored to suit your individual needs to remove the tinting section if required.

How long is the appointment?

Each appointment takes approximately 45 minutes and includes a mini makeup lesson to give you tips on grooming and filling in your brows at home.

Do you sell the HD Brows products?

I will soon be a virtual stockist and I will have all of the official HD Brow products available for us to try at your appointment including the popular Browtec pencil.

What if my brows are barely there?

I can still help you! You’ll be amazed at what can be done to make the most of barely there brows and the HD Brow regrowth programme is designed to help you grow in areas which might have been previously over plucked or waxed.

Is this treatment Permanent?

No. The HD treatment uses tint and various hair removal methods to create the desired shape. This is different from microblading which is a semi-permanent technique.

How long does the treatment last?

The effects of the treatment generally last 4-6 weeks. However, this can vary depending on your hair growth.

Professional Beauty Show, Excel London

The Professional Beauty Show

This year’s Professional Beauty Show was packed with makeup demonstrations, seminars and live stages and hosted 800 cosmetic and skincare brands.

I saw the preparations for a live stage by Airbase who created some vibrant peacock inspired body art (picture below) and then attended a wedding makeup demonstration sponsored by Mii Cosmetics on current bridal trends for beautiful bridal and bridal party makeup.

With the demand on ethical and organic cosmetics bigger than ever, it was fascinating to listen to a talk on organic, natural and vegan makeup options.

Of course I also took full advantage of the show offers and bought some lovely new products for my kit including new brushes, eyeshadow palettes and brow products.

Here’s a few pictures from the day.

Wedding Pop-Up at One Warwick Park


 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently exhibited at a new wedding fayre pop-up at the beautiful One Warwick Park hotel and the lovely brides-to-be of Tunbridge Wells.

The Wedding Fayre was held in the hotel’s new function room which can be accessed from Chapel Place, just a stones throw from the Pantiles.

I used the opportunity to meet some of the other beautiful and unique wedding suppliers who were exhibiting and even picked up a few photography tips from fab local wedding photographer Leanna Catherine.

The Wedding Fayre was organised by Support Local  which runs monthly pop-up events in Tunbridge Wells to showcase local talent.

This event was a great success. Thanks to all the lovely couples who came to say hello and booked their bridal trials with me!

 

50% off Bridal Makeup Trials: Fross Exclusive Offer

I attended the Fross Wedding Collections Sample Sale on 6 January 2018 which gave me a perfect opportunity to browse all of their gorgeous dresses and meet some lovely brides who were planning their weddings this year. It evoked memories of planning my own wedding six years ago and the moment I found my perfect dress along with five (yes five!) bridesmaid dresses.

So as a little treat for Fross customers I have decided to run an exclusive bridal makeup discount. I’m offering 50% off the price of bridal makeup trials when you buy your dress at Fross Wedding Collections. Just quote ‘Fross’ when booking!

Creative Skull Makeup For Halloween 2017

I spent Halloween this year doing something a little different over at The Sussex Makeup Academy! Far removed from my usual bridal brief, I worked on my first creative Halloween makeup look with Principle Amy Prifti.

Taking inspiration from some of the fantastic skull makeup looks online, we designed the skull effect that we wanted to achieve with pen and paper first.

We painted on the white base to cover the bottom half of the face using a large buffing brush and sponge before mapping out the key features of the cheek bones, jaw line and teeth with a finer brush. We moved on to contour and shade each element with black and grey makeup to create the 3D effect of the skull.

Once the eye socket and cracking details were added around the chin and cheeks, the look was given a finishing touch using gems from Funk On.

I thoroughly enjoyed working on this creepy look and was amazed by what could be achieved with Amy’s tips and guidance.

The Sussex Makeup Academy run a variety of creative makeup courses for all skill levels so if you want to get involved, check them out: http://www.sussexmakeupacademy.co.uk/
