Leez Priory, Professional Beauty Show and Trials all Week.
Well, what a busy time! I spent Saturday morning preparing Michelle and her bridal party for Michelles big day at Leez Priory. I carried out all the makeup for the six people in her party. We had a lovely relaxing morning waiting for the Mother of the Bride to turn up and her sisters. All of them looked stunning and each opted for a different look to suit their hair / outfit. Congratulations Michelle. On Sunday I had a fabulous day at the Professional Beauty show in London. I attended two seminars to keep up with trends for 2013. The two celebrity makeup artists were so inspiring. The first one is Gary Cockerill. Many of you may be familiar with him as he is personal makeup and hair stylist for Glamour Model Katie Price. The other Celebrity Makeup Artist is Armand Beasley, who works with famous celebrities preparing makeup for the Oscars and Baftas. Very very inspiring! The show was great fun, lots of Makeup Stalls and Nail Stalls. You do not need to be in the industry to attend these shows and I really recommend you attend if you like makeup and beauty. We came away with lots of fancy bags with lots of samples in. A real girly treat to attend. We even bumped into Lauren Goodier from Towie! Today I have had a trial with the lovely Sophie Jackson and I enjoyed trying out my new techniques for a fresh flawless makeup. I also carried out her hair trial this morning, lots of loose curls and romance in her look today. Sophie is getting married at Leez in the Summer this year. Here are some photos of my busy weekend.
