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/
