What brought you to the world of makeup?

A very twisted path and lots of different jobs led me to here. I kind of fell into it by accident  but loved it from the first minute.

What is your favourite makeup look at the minute?

Trends come and go, but my favourite look will always be beautiful flawless skin. I love strong brows and lips .

What products can you not live without?

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream . The only thing for dry lips and a great multi tasker. 

What should a bride have in her bag before leaving for the ceremony?

A pressed powder compact to combat shine and a beautiful lipstick. I love Chanel Rouge Allure, Sisley Hydrating lipstick and L’ancome Rouge in Love.

What trends do you think will be popular with this year’s brides?

I try to steer Brides away from trends and go for classic beautiful timeless makeup looks. Do you really want to look back in 20 years and think “oh god that was so 2013 “

Any skin care tips for brides in the run up to their big day?

Skin care should always be a priority , not just in the run up to the big day. I tell all my brides that how they look on the big day is 50% up to them , and i will do the rest. They must put in the work with their skincare routine . Regular facials are important, but more important is the home routine. Cleanse tone and moisturise morning and evening, exfoliate with a gentle exfoliator twice a week and use a mask once a week. A nourishing night cream is vital as is eye cream used am/pm .

And of course the most important advice of all. Drink loads of water !

What do you like to do on your day off?

Turn off the phone, walk my dog, hang out and do as little as possible 

Sweets or savoury?

Don’t make me choose! Both of course!
