Three Products I Love At The Moment

This is just a short post to feature some products I currently love:

1) SANCTUARY Youth Boosting Warming Microbrasion Polish
I have used this 4 times now and already my skin looks newer, cleaner and polished.

2) Almond Oil
I buy this from Holland and Barrett and use it on damp skin (instead of body moisturiser)
as it is natural and really hydrating and CHEAP at around £3.00!

3) MANDARA SPA Island Paradise conditioning hand lotion
It smells utterly divine and the 300ml bottle will last ages.  It was half price in Sainsbury's and I love it!!

Megan's Wonderful Wedding

On 16th July 2011, I made up Megan for her wedding day in a lovely place called Bishampton, Worcestershire. I did Megan's trial in London about 6 weeks beforehand and within 2 hours we nailed her look.  My brief was that she wanted to look summery and fresh, but with an element of glamour - which I hope you'll agree with when you see the picture below - we managed.

When I first met Megan I really thought she looked like Sienna Miller, what a lucky girl! Her skincare regime was really finely tuned and this showed in her skin as it looked and felt firm and hydrated. A great start for me as a make-up artist.....

Megan's wedding was at a local church in Bishmapton where her parents now live and her reception was in their fabulous garden.  She wanted a summer garden party with a vintage feel and even though it rained all morning during the preparation and pampering - the sun shone for her at the right time.  I always say the sun shines for good people and this was true for Megan and her then Fiance, Will.

Have a look at the pictures of Megan's wedding below.  Her just got out of bed hair and her INCREDIBLE lace vintage style dress made her look a million dollars (which is probably what Sienna Miller would spend on her wedding!)

Just us two and time for Megan to reeeelax

Pretty much done, just the hair to finish

Megan is ready. Gorgeous bridesmaid dresses aren't they?

Not sure what she sang here, and is that Will on drums???
