Firstly a huge apology for not have written (again) for sooo long but the summer has been very busy!  I have also been taking bookings for 2015 which looks like another busy year so i had better book my holiday out!  I have had the pleasure of working with some really lovely brides and brides to be…some of the pictures i will post here!  This Friday i will be carrying out makeups for Toni and her bridal party at Saracens Head Hotel in Great Dunmow and Saturday i will be getting Alison ready, her mother and one bridesmaid at her home address in Burnham…the afternoon will be filled with two trials for weddings next year. Lets hope this lovely weather continues for them :-)

Again a very busy month carrying out makeups for trials, weddings, proms and parties and met some really lovely girls. Please be patient if you have emailed me. I try to respond to all emails on the same day.

What wonderful weather we have had! Have worked with some beautiful brides recently and am working with some lovely brides to be too. I just love this time of year. I get so excited about creating beautiful, flawless makeup!

I am praying it dosent rain this Friday Or Saturday as my bride Jessica is marrying at Baddow Park in Great Baddow on Friday and Catherine on Saturday in Frinton on Sea so fingers crossed!! I will then be carrying out trials Saturday afternoon in my home town Chelmsford for my bride Katie and her bridesmaid Jade.

Hot hot hot!!!

Phew this must be the hottest day of the year so far and I am not complaining!! Sorry I haven’t wrote a blog for a while but I have been very busy doing trials and weddings, most of my Saturdays are now gone!  I have had the pleasure of preparing my brides, bridesmaids and not forgetting the beautiful mummies at Channels, Leez Priory, Crabbs Barn ( I must say I usually get the brides ready at their own address when they marry here but I had the privilege of getting the bridal party ready here on a couple of occasions in the last few weeks and it is very quaint and beautiful), Newland Hall, Pontlands Park Hotel, Downhall Hotel, Parklands and The Lawns. Yesterday I did a trial for the lovely Crystal, an Asian girl who went for gorgeous creams and pinks on her eyes with charcoal blended at the corners with some highlighter added to the inner corners, then I applied black kohl pencil along the bottom blended to make it smokey with liquid liner all the way along the top with a little flick, it looked really pretty. She had an amazing gloss by MAC applied to her lips called funtabulous!!  Her 2 sisters came along to watch (as this trial was done at my address) and they loved it so much they asked to not only have theirs done at their sisters wedding day (as well as two other girls and their mum)  but one of them booked me for her wedding in April 2015. On this day I also did a trial for a 50th birthday for a lovely lady called Caroline who turns the big 5-0 in two weeks time…she went for a beautiful sparkly baby blue shadow by stardust over her lid with a darker navy blue by MAC called contrast at the outer corners with a MAC blusher called springsheen and a gorgeous Stilla peach gloss (to compliment her dress).  I will do me best to write very soon and not leave it so long!!!!

New Website!!

Hi everyone, this is my very first blog on this website which went live last week yippee!!! I hope you all agree its really lovely as i am very pleased with it! This is a very busy time for me as many brides are getting married combined with many trials for the brides getting married in the summer. This week i did a trial for Laura on Tuesday, she is getting married Easter Sunder at Prested Hall. Tomorrow i will carrying out a trial for Jenny who will be getting married on 23rd May, not sure of her venue yet will find out tomorrow. Saturday i will be doing makeup trials with the very talented hair stylist Carly ( who i always recommend 100% as she creates beautiful unique styles which are different for every bride she meets) for Shantelle and her two bridesmaids in sunny Southend and her wedding day is 10th June. I will try and post pictures of these girls trials once they have been done :-). For now i wish all those lovely mummies out there a wonderful mothers day on Sunday, i am very much looking forward to a restful day with the family and beautiful food at my sister in laws parents restaurant in Kent….don’t forget the clocks go forward on this day too, speak soon Karen xx
