I adored working with the stunning Kyra on this fantastic photoshoot. The photographer is Paul Clapp…

As a makeup artist you tend to have your tried and tested, reliable products that are perfect for any shoot or bridal booking…
I also love trying the new ranges available on the market and updating my bag of beauty tricks with new inspirational beauty products.
I’ve just tried out these Hydrolats from Base Formula in Rose Otto and Orange Flower.
I love the fact that they are in a pump-action spray and totally plant and flower-based.
The Orange Flower one smells amazing and when I sprayed it onto my skin it felt like a refreshing and revitalising mist.
The neroli fragrance is quite calming but uplifting too, especially on aching flip-flopped feet coming into Summer.
It’s in my bag and ready for my next early morning!
The Rose Otto Hydrolat feels quite moisturising and light.
The rose fragrance is comforting and although it is distinctive, it is not at all overpowering. I like to use this one in the evening, either a quick spritz on my skin, or as a refreshing body mist after my shower or as a room spray.
I love the fact that these aromatherapy sprays are natural and can be used with other natural products and creams.
I don’t know about you, but I do love a bit of every day luxury and these sprays feel like a mini-holiday after a few hours on set.
I will certainly be recommending these for brides to pack in their honeymoon case too.
Here is a link to the range of Hydrolats https://www.baseformula.com/hydrolats from Base Formula if you’d like to know more about them. I’m looking forward to trying out the lavender and chamomile ones too!
I love this inspiration from the Debra Lamb interview shoot I was recently on. Debra shared so many insights about her experiences in the acting business. If you haven’t already, check out the pics and listen to the interview here: INTERVIEW with Debra Lamb.
I especially like this hair and make-up look for Debra. It’s strong and feminine and really suits the modern Baroque inspired bodice and black and white fishtail gown she is wearing by Belinda – (known for her designs for Vivienne Westwood) on this shoot.
For Debra’s make-up;
Have you tried this look on your clients? I’d love to see the results!
For anyone checking out my site for the first time here are some great places to start:

It was amazing to work on set of the Debra Lamb shoot. It’s so much fun working together with a team of artists, prepping for an interview like we did this time. Photoshoots usually mean an early start and some commuter traffic, and still managing to be on time and friendly to everyone you meet when you get there! That’s why I like to pack my bag the night before and make sure all my brushes and beauty equipment are ready to go when I wake up! I also pack water or a light snack to keep me going till midmorning. Check out some of the pics from the shoot here…
Debra’s interview is here… and yes you may hear me laughing with the other crew members in the background – a sure sign of a fab shoot day.
I did the make-up for Sarah (photo below) before she went to the London Pallidium for the Royal Variety Show.
This is based on a flawless foundation look, with key blusher and contouring, without it looking too made-up… combined with ultra strong lips in a bright colour trend, perfect for festive parties, and show-stopping strong eyes. This look is all about the parties, the dancing, the shows and the glitz.
